RIO DE JANEIRO, July 15 Mon Jul 15, 2013 6:45pm EDT

RIO DE JANEIRO, July 15 (Reuters) - Brazilian coal miner CCX , part of billionaire Eike Batista's EGX group, said on Monday that two of its board members had resigned, the latest high-profile departures from the conglomerate of mining, energy and logistics companies.

CCX, whose operations are focused on Colombia, said in a securities commission filing that Bruno de Rossi Chevalier and Rodolpho Tourinho Neto resigned from their positions. The company gave no reasons.

In June, Batista postponed plans to delist CCX, citing unfavorable market conditions. He had planned to delist CCX by buying back its shares in exchange for stock in other EBX companies.

Last week, four of the six board members of shipbuilder OSX Brasil SA resigned.

One day earlier, two board members quit OGX Petroleo e Gas SA as the group's flagship has failed to deliver on promised oil production.
