AfriTin Mining Limited

("AfriTin" or the "Company")

Appointment of CFO

AfriTin Mining Limited (AIM: ATM), an African technology metals mining company with a portfolio of mining and exploration assets in Namibia, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Hiten Ooka, as the new Chief Financial Officer ("CFO") of the Company. This is a non-board appointment.

Hiten, a qualified Chartered Accountant (South Africa), joins the Company from Bushveld Minerals, where he was Group Head of Finance. Prior to this, he has spent the past 12 years holding senior management roles at Rand Uranium, Trafigura and Eurasian Resource Group. His operational experience having worked for multinational organisations, coupled with his technical finance and tax experience, will further strengthen AfriTin's Executive Team.

Furthermore, the Company confirms Mr Robert Sewell has stepped down as CFO of the Company to pursue other opportunities. He will, however, remain as a consultant to the Company in the short-term to ensure a smooth transition process.

Anthony Viljoen (CEO) commented: "I am excited to welcome Hiten to the team. We look forward to his contributions to the Company as it continues its progress into becoming what we believe will become one of the largest tech, and green energy, metals mining companies. Hiten brings an impressive operational and technical track record to AfriTin at this important juncture for the Company. His experience will be vital as the Company expands its strategic resources, to bringing its lithium and tantalum streams into production and complementing the already successful tin operations.

The Company thanks Robert for his contributions and wishes him every success in his future endeavours ."
