Caledonia Mining Corporation Plc announces that Jim Johnstone has retired from the board, where he held the position of non-executive director.

Mr. Johnstone was a mining engineer with over 40 years’ experience in underground and open pit mine operations, spanning North America, Africa, Europe and Asia.

After joining Caledonia in 1997 as Vice President Operations, he was responsible for Caledonia's operations in Zambia, Canada and South Africa. He was elected an executive director of Caledonia in June 1997. He retired as an executive in 2006, but continued as a non-executive director.

The board and management of Caledonia has expressed their sincere appreciation to Mr. Johnstone for his service to the Company during the last twenty years.

Leigh Wilson, Caledonia’s chairman, made the following comment on Mr. Johnstone’s retirement: “Over the course of Jim’s involvement, Caledonia has been transformed from a collection of assets, widely spread in terms of geography and commodity. On behalf of the Caledonia’s board and management, I would like to thank Jim for his two decades of service to the company and we wish him, his wife and his family a happy retirement.”
