The company said that during his tenure, Connochie brought wisdom and extensive international industry experience to support Danakali as it progresses the Colluli Sulphate of Potash Project in Eritrea.
This support had been an important component in the critical processes of securing offtake, debt financing, ongoing project development and most recently with a successful capital raising.

“We are very grateful to him for his service to the company and we will miss his experience, clear thinking and good humour going forward.
“We wish him the very best in the future and I personally express my sincere appreciation for his dedication, insights and friendship.”
