Volt Resources (ASX:VRC) has appointed Asimwe Kabunga as chairman of the company’s board of directors effective immediately.
Kabunga will replace Stephen Hunt in line with the Volt’s succession planning aimed at preparing the company for the next stage of development at its Namangale graphite project.
Kabunga joined Volt’s board as a non-executive director in April 2017 and notably is the original vendor of the Namangale tenements and also remains the largest single shareholder.
During mid-July, Volt signed its fifth offtake agreement this year filling 100% of proposed Stage 1 capacity at its flagship Namangale graphite project in Tanzania.
This was the fourth agreement that Volt has signed with a Chinese graphite group since management completed a successful product marketing trip in May 2017.
