However, the following statements are made in respect of corporate governance: The Company is managed by the Board of Directors. The function of the Chairman is to supervise the Board and to ensure that the Board has control of the business, and that of the Chief Executive Officer is to manage the Company on the Board's behalf.
To conform to accepted corporate governance standards, there are two Non-Executive Board members.

The Board has several established Committees to fulfill specific functions:
The Audit Committee

The audit committee receives and reviews reports from management and from the Company's auditors relating to the interim and annual accounts and to the internal control procedures in use throughout the Company.The Remuneration Committee

The remuneration committee is chaired by Helen Green and determines and reviews the terms and conditions of service (including remuneration) to executive Directors and employees and the grant of options under the Share Option Scheme.
The Board has overall responsibility for the Company's system of internal control. However, such a system is designed to manage rather than eliminate the risk of failure to achieve business objectives, and can only provide reasonable and not absolute assurance against material misstatement.

This includes the comprehensive review of both management and technical reports, the monitoring of foreign exchange and interest rate fluctuations, environmental considerations, government and fiscal policy issues, employment and information technology requirements and cash control procedures.
The Technical Directors make frequent site visits. In this way the key risk areas can be monitored effectively and specialist expertise applied in a timely and productive manner.
The services of Mr Humphries and Mr Prickett are provided under the terms of consultancy agreements which provide for six months' notice of termination. Mr Wilkinson and Ms Green have appointment letters which are terminable without notice.
The Company maintains effective contact with principal shareholders and welcomes communications from private investors.
