     Globally experienced geologist James Hogg MSc. BSc. MAIG appointed as 
                            non-Executive Director 
BWA Group plc [AQSE: BWAP], which has seven mineral exploration licences split 
between Canada and Cameroon at various stages of development and is quoted on 
London's AQSE Growth Market (formerly NEX), has appointed James Hogg MSc. BSc. 
MAIG as a non-Executive Director of the Company. 
James is Principal Geologist and Managing Director of Addison Mining Services 
("Addison") and has over 20 years of experience across several geographies and 
mineral types.  Having spent the early part of his career with major mining 
houses Delta Gold, Sons of Gwalia and Newmont Mining in Australia, he moved 
into a consulting geologist role with ACA Howe in 2005, before moving to 
Micromine, a leading mining technology business.  Addison, an independent 
mining consulting and technical advisory business, was founded by James in 2014 
and it has been advising BWA on its Cameroon rutile sands project for the past 
year, and, more recently, also its Canadian assets.  Addison will continue to 
provide technical consulting services to the Company. 
Richard Battersby, Non-Executive Chairman, said:  "James's extensive mineral 
expertise and experience from across the global mining industry covers gold, 
base metals, palladium and also the other minerals found in BWA's rutile sands 
investment in Cameroon including kyanite and ilmenite. 
We have got to know him well during the last year in relation to our Cameroon 
assets and look forward to him bringing his expertise to our gold, nickel and 
palladium projects in Canada too.  Given his extensive qualifications and 
significant experience, his ability to supervise and prepare CPR, JORC 2012, 
and NI 43-101 reports and mineral resource estimates will be invaluable to 
BWA's investment in mineral licences, project development, and future
