Herencia Commences Board Restructure and Corporate Reinvigoration

Herencia confirms today that it has commenced a process of restructuring which will involve the appointment of two new Directors over the next week to oversee Herencia's reestablishment as a viable junior exploration and development company.

As part of that restructure and subject to final negotiation between the parties, Herencia is pleased to advise that Peter Reeve will join the board as a Non Executive Director. A further announcement will be made in due course when the appointment is finalised.

Peter Desmond Reeve, aged 54, has been involved in the resources industry for approximately 30 years and, as a professional metallurgist, has held positions with Rio Tinto, Shell-Billiton and Newcrest Mining.

Peter has also worked in Resource Funds Management and Resource Corporate Finance. He has been a Director of several small resource companies and in these roles aims to develop commercial strategies, align with the business with the investment community and assist in development funding needs.
