Aterian PLC appoints new chief operating officer

Aterian PLC has appointed a new chief operating officer. Mr. Luke Rogers was COO of Trinity Metals Ltd, a tin and tungsten producer in East Africa.

Rogers holds a bachelor’s degree in mining engineering and a master’s degree in minerals engineering from the Camborne School of Mines. He has over 14 years of international mining experience – working across multiple mining disciplines ranging from production mine engineering to mineral processing operations – primarily focused on base metal projects in developing economies.


Mr. Rogers has oversaw nine mine projects, 4,500 employees, and the “largest ever” investment in the Rwandan mining sector. Prior to this, Rogers was country manager for AMR Gold in Sierra Leone, leading a team of 26 people and helped develop the region’s Wilkinson Hill Coltan deposit. As a mining and processing engineering consultant and manager, Aterian says he brings significant and relevant experience to the company’s African portfolio.

Chair Charles Bray said: “The recent acquisition of the copper-silver and base metal assets in Morocco, together with the move to the Standard List of the London Stock Exchange will present opportunities in which Luke’s skill set will provide significant added benefit to the company. His intimate understanding of Rwanda and its mining sector will serve us well as we continue evaluating our tantalum-niobium-tin projects in the south of the country and the metals trading business. We look forward to Luke putting his technical expertise to use to prove up our existing assets and working to support the company’s long-term sustainable development.”
