Volt continues to progress approval to issue and list interest-bearing notes on the Stock Exchange of Mauritius (SEM)’s Development and Enterprise Market (DEM) in addition to the issue and listing of interest-bearing notes on the Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange (DSE) in Tanzania.

The Stage 1 feasibility study was based on a 400,000 tonnes per annum mining and processing operation to produce on average 23,700 tonnes of graphite products annually.
