Angela List Amewu

A Chief Executive Officer Angela List, whose name has repeatedly come up in media reports with ex Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Peter Amewu has denied been removed as the chief executive officer of Adamus Resources Ghana Limited.

An earlier media report had suggested that following a ruling by the Supreme Court of Western Australia over some alleged illegalities on her part, she was removed from her role.

Angela List who is not a stranger to corporate and marital controversies in the media in Ghana and Liberia was said to have been removed at an extraordinary general meeting of Adamus Resources’ shareholders and director of the Australian registered parent company, Adamus Resources Pty Limited, held on 3 February 2023. She was allegedly formally removed as CEO by a majority decision.

But her lawyers in rebuttal say Adamus Resources Pty Limited is not the mother company of Adamus Ghana.

“The Supreme Court of Western Australia has not made any determination on the control of Adamus Resources Ltd as (a) no such matter has come before the court in Western Australia; and (b) it is not within the jurisdiction or power of the Australian Court to make any such determination over the control or ownership of a Ghanaian mining company. The dispute in Australia was only about the removal of one, Allan Morrison as a director and secretary of Adamus Resources Pty Limited (an Australian Company), and whether the removal was validly done. The said director was removed because he had failed to perform his duties, being failure to file accounts and tax returns on behalf of the company over the last 5 years as well as his failure to act in the best interest of the company” the lawyers said.

“The court in Australia has not made any pronouncement on the ownership of Adamus Resources Ltd (Ghana) or the ownership and control of Adamus Australia, since those issues were not in contention before the court. Thus, any reference to such a judgment/determination is false and should be ignored.

Further, the said Adamus Resources (Pty) Ltd is not the parent company of Adamus Resources Ltd. The parent company of Adamus Resources Ltd is Nguvu Mining Ltd” they added.

The ownership and control of mining companies in Ghana are solely within the remit of the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources and the Minerals Commission. In accordance with his powers, the Minister approved Nguvu Mining as the owner and controller of Adamus Resources Ltd. This fact can be verified from the public registries of the Minerals Commission and the Registrar General’s Department. Nguvu Mining, as the 90% shareholder of the company has not held any meeting to remove Angela List as a director of Adamus Resources Limited.”
