Vorster's “valuable contribution”
Volt chairman Asimwe Kabunga said: “On behalf of the company I would like to thank Alwyn for his valuable contribution to Volt Resources during his three-year tenure on the board.
“Alwyn contributed positively to the advancement of the Bunyu Graphite Project towards near-term production and we wish him well in the future.”
Fazio is a highly experienced project, construction and contract/commercial management professional.
He has held senior project management roles with Primero Group Limited, Laing O’Rourke and Forge Group Ltd.
His experience ranges from feasibility studies through to engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning of diverse mining resources, infrastructure, oil & gas and energy projects.
Kabunga said: “We are delighted to have Jack Fazio joining the board, and his extensive project management, engineering and commissioning skills and experience will be a valuable addition to the team as we transition from the project studies and funding phase through to project development and the start of stage I operations at Bunyu.”
Stage I plans
Stage I development is based on a mining and processing plant annual throughput rate of 400,000 tonnes of ore to produce on average 23,700 tonnes of graphite products.
A key objective of the stage I development is to establish infrastructure and market position in support of the development of the significantly larger stage II expansion project.
The project is near critical infrastructure with sealed roads running through the project area, providing ready access to the deep-water port of Mtwara 140 kilometres away.
