The Company is actively looking to acquire undervalued companies with properties in West Africa. There are many small properties that, while uneconomic individually, would be greatly accretive to a strategic portfolio of properties. Volta seeks to consolidate these properties into a well-managed pipeline that includes exploration properties, properties in development, and operating properties.

Volta's focus for the remainder of 2008 and into Q1/2009 is to define NI 43-101 compliant resources at the four principal properties: Gaoua, Tombe, Chert Ridge and Tinga. Concurrently, drilling will continue on other properties in the portfolio.
