The Financial Times has claimed that three senior executives have resigned and a fourth has taken leave of absence at FTSE 100-listed miner Eurasian National Resources Corp (ENRC).

The Financial Times has claimed that three senior executives have resigned and a fourth has taken leave of absence at FTSE 100-listed miner Eurasian National Resources Corp (ENRC).

The newspaper reported that Victoria Penrice, company secretary, Tony McCarthy, human resources boss, and Stuart Nolan, group head of reward, had left. It said that Victor Hannah, head of Africa, had taken a voluntary leave of absence.

On Friday April 19th, the board of ENRC issued a public statement on its website in response to an announcement by major shareholder Alexander Machkevitch that he is looking to take over the company.

The announcement stated: "The board of ENRC notes the announcement earlier today from Mr Alexander Machkevitch that he is in the preliminary stages of forming a consortium to assess a potential offer for the company. The board confirms that it has not received any proposal which could result in an offer or possible offer for the group."

No one at ENRC was available to speak to Digital Look about the report at the time of publication.

ENRC's share price was down 4.78% to 277.10p at 10:23 on Monday, pulling back after having surged by over a quarter on Friday.
