Ivanhoe Australia Limited (TSX:IVA)(ASX:IVA) today announces an intention to reduce its Board from eight members to six, with two of the non-executive directors, Ian Plimer and Neville Henwood to resign in early August.

On behalf of the entire Board, I would like to thank both Ian and Neville for their contribution to Ivanhoe Australia. Particularly Ian, as he has been a Director since before Ivanhoe Australia listed on ASX, over-seeing the growth of the Company for the past five years."
