Founding Director, Mr Ian Buchhorn Steps Down

Sydney, Australia, June 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heron Resources Limited (“Heron” or the “Company”) (TSX: HER; ASX: HRR) today advises that Mr Ian Buchhorn has stepped down as a Director of Heron and in the near future will also cease to be employed as an executive of the Company.

Mr Buchhorn was the founding Managing Director of Heron when it first listed on the ASX in 1996. Mr Buchhorn has brought a wealth of exploration and industry experience to the Heron Board during his long career with the Company, and in this time has overseen many of Heron’s successful exploration programs and corporate initiatives. Most recently, Ian was instrumental in achieving the successful spin-out of Ardea Resources Limited from Heron.

Heron’s Chairman, Mr Stephen Dennis, said: “As the Company transitions from an exploration company to developer of the Woodlawn mine, it is a logical time for Ian to leave Heron, and for him to refocus his energy and time to Ardea and his other business interests. Ian has played a key part in the growth of Heron and on behalf of the Board we wish him and his family all the best for the future.”

Mr Buchhorn remains a major shareholder of Heron with an 11% interest in the Company.
