Resignation of Director

Ellex Medical Lasers Limited (Ellex) wishes to advise that Dr Keith Robert Johnson has resigned as a Director of Ellex. Mr Johnson advised that due to increasing commitments with Havilah Resources Limited and the newly listed Curnamona Energy Limited, both of which he is Chairman, he could no longer devote the necessary time to Ellex.

The Directors of Ellex would like to thank Mr Johnson for his contribution to the company over the past two and a half years and wish him success with his new opportunities.
