Mountain Province Diamonds Inc. announced it has reached a mutual decision with Patrick Evans, its President and Chief Executive Officer, that Mr. Evans will depart the company effective immediately, with David Whittle being appointed Interim President and Chief Executive Officer in his place.

Mr. Evans will continue as a director of the company. Mr. Evans will provide assistance to the company to facilitate the transitional period.

Mr. Whittle is currently the Lead Outside Director of the company, and has 25 years of senior executive experience in the mining industry. He has been a director of the company since 1997, and was President of Mountain Province’s joint venture partner, Glenmore Highlands Inc., at the time of the original discovery of Gahcho Kué’s 5034 kimberlite pipe in 1995.

He worked tirelessly to bring the Gahcho Kué project to a positive development decision, and has brought the company to where we are today as a diamond producer and marketer. We appreciate his efforts, and wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
