Volt Resources Limited (“Volt”) is a critical minerals and battery materials company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange under the ASX code VRC and on the Boerse Frankfurt with code R8L. We are an established graphite producer and an emerging natural graphite anode (a key component of lithium-ion batteries) producer.
Volt has a 70% interest in the Zavalievsky Graphite (ZG) business in Ukraine. The ZG mine and processing facilities have been in operation since 1934 and are near key markets with significant developments in lithium-ion battery production.
ZG benefits from an existing customer base and graphite product supply chain, with excellent transport infrastructure covering road, rail, river, and sea freight combined with reliable grid power, ample potable ground water supply and good communications.
Volt is progressing the development of its large wholly owned Bunyu Graphite Project in Tanzania. The Bunyu Graphite Project is ideally located near to critical infrastructure with sealed roads running through the project area and ready access to the deep-water port of Mtwara 140km from the Project.
In August 2023, Volt reported the completion of the revised Feasibility Study (“FS”) for Stage 1 development of the Bunyu Graphite Project. The Stage 1 development is based on a mining and processing plant annual throughput rate of 400,000 tonnes of ore to produce on average 24,780 tpa of graphite products. Key objectives of Stage 1 development are to establish the Bunya Graphite Project as a world-class supplier of graphite products, grow Volt’s existing natural flake graphite business, provide cashflow and establish infrastructure in support of the development of the significantly larger Stage 2 expansion project.
