Tuesday, September 21, 2010

TORONTO, September 22, 2010 - Volta Resources Inc. ("Volta" or the "Company") (TSX: VTR) today
announced that it has planned a drilling program comprising more than 250
holes for approximately 50,000 meters in the Central Area at its Kiaka Gold
Project in Burkina Faso (see Figure 1). Approximately 40% of the program is
scheduled to be completed by the end of this year. The program is scheduled
to commence this weekend.

Volta recently announced a maiden NI43-101
compliant resource at its flagship Kiaka Gold Project. The resource
estimate compiled by independent consultants, SRK (UK) based in Cardiff,
United Kingdom
, included Indicated Resources of 41.25 Mt at 1.04g/t for 1,
384,000 ounces of gold and Inferred Resources of 15.9 Mt at 0.90g/t for 480
,000 ounces of gold. The resource is contained within a Whittle optimized
open pit, at a 0.6 g/t gold cut-off (see press release dated June 29, 2010
), extending to approximately 200 meters below surface. The drilling
program is aimed at achieving the following objectives (see Figure 2):

    -   Infill the core of the main deposit defined so far in the Central
        Area to 25m x 50m drill spacing in order to raise the category of
        most of the Indicated to Measured Resources and Inferred to Indicated

    -   Extend the drilling depth of the main area of the deposit in the
        Central Area so that the interval between 200 meters and 300 meters
        below surface delivers Inferred Resources.

    -   Extend and infill the drilling north of the main deposit by
        approximately 450 meters on 50m x 50m drill spacing in an attempt to
        add additional Indicated and Inferred Resources.

    -   Additional drilling to the northwest of the main deposit in the
        Central Area in order to follow up recent good intersections achieved
        in the KHZ zone. This drilling will also attempt to add Indicated and
        Inferred Resources.

    -   Extend and infill the drilling south of the main deposit by
        approximately 400 meters on 50m x 50m drill spacing in an attempt to
        add additional Indicated and Inferred Resources.

Kevin Bullock, Volta's CEO, said, "After our very
successful first year developing Kiaka, we continue to proceed aggressively
to further expand the scope of the project. We will be drilling deeper than
before and increasing the overall territory that has been drilled. Our goal
is to increase the existing resource and then evaluate the best production
path scenarios.

The Company is also finalizing plans for follow up drilling
on the Contact Zone in the South Area. A program to pursue other targets on
the 244 km(2) Kiaka property is also being finalized and would likely
commence toward the end of 2010.

Under the guidelines of National Instrument 43-101, the qualified person
for the Kiaka Gold Project is Mr. Guy Franceschi, Vice President, Exploration
for Volta. Mr. Franceschi is a member of the European Federation of
Geologists and has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release.

Volta is a mineral exploration company primarily focused on becoming a

Gold Project, located in Burkina Faso, towards a development decision.
