Mr. Dumas will also remain a director and major shareholder of Dumas and will work closely with Mr. Greeff over an extended transition period.

"Having founded Dumas 17 years ago as a small regional mining contractor, I've had the pleasure of heading Dumas to become a leading international underground service provider to the mining industry. Having accomplished this, I've decided that now is the right time for me to hand over the CEO role to someone new, to manage what is now a large and diverse business and who will drive our continued growth over the coming years," said Mr. Dumas. "Burger's proven strategic leadership and management expertise give him the ideal credentials to drive Dumas to further successes. I'm confident that his results-driven leadership and enthusiasm for excellence will maintain Dumas' culture of providing the highest standards of service to our clients.
