    Volta Reports More Wide Gold Intercepts at its Kiaka Gold Projectin Burkina Faso Including 120.5m @ 0.94g/t Au and 62.24m @ 2.25g/t AuIncluding 19m @ 4.62g/t Au

    TSX: VTR

    TORONTO, April 14/CNW/ - Volta Resources Inc. ("Volta" or the "Company") (TSX: VTR)announces the drill results from the next completed section at itsKiaka Gold Project, located approximately 120 kilometres southeast of Ouagadougou, the capital city of Burkina Faso.To date, 88 holes (~13,810meters) have been completed of a programcomprising more than 150 holes ((greater than)22,000 meters). So farresults have been received for 67 holes, with this news releasecovering the latest 6 holes, which are all located on Section 5450N.Randgold hole KDH16 is also located on this section. The highlightsfrom this section include:

        -   KKRC30   : 93.00m @ 0.70g/t Au, including 4.0m @ 3.89g/t Au
    - KRD50 : 34.00m @ 1.56g/t Au AND
    - KRD50 : 10.72m @ 1.60g/t Au (hole stopped in mineralization)
    - KRD51 : 62.24m @ 2.25g/t Au, including 9m @ 3.67g/t Au
    and 19m @ 4.62g/t Au
    - KRD52 : 120.50m @ 0.94g/t Au, including 14m @ 2.22g/t Au
    and 8m @ 2.28g/t Au
    - KDH16* : 159.00m @ 0.87g/t Au, including 11m @ 1.60g/t Au
    and 32m @ 1.57g/t Au AND
    - KDH16* : 22.00m @ 0.92g/t Au, including 14m @ 1.21g/t Au

    * Previously drilled by Randgold

    Kevin Bullock, Volta's CEO, said, "Theseadditional exceptional results not only further validate Randgold'shistorical results, they also further support our emerging new model ofKiaka that is outlining a new understanding of the mineralization. Inparticular, we continue to enhance the interpretation of discretehigher grade zones within the broad mineralized lower grade envelopethat can be traced from hole to hole and from section to section. Kiakais an ideal project in that as we drill more we are discovering morenuances that suggest more robust structures than those originallyinterpreted."

    In order to appreciate the extent and geometry of the mineralizationon the 5450N section, the results for the intersections for these holesare highlighted in Table 1 below and on the section in Figure 2.Analyses of the Volta samples were undertaken by fire assay on a 50gcharge at ALS Chemex Laboratories in Ouagadougou. Volta's sampling and assay procedures included QA/QC elements that employed the inclusion of certified standards and blanks.

    NOTES:
    1) Intervals are core length. True width is unknown at this time.
    2) Intersections are based on a 0.3 g/t gold cut-off with maximum
    internal dilution of 5m for the lower grade mineralization envelope.
    3) In order to highlight the continuity of the high grade zone, a 0.8
    g/t gold cut-off with maximum internal dilution of 2m has been used.
    No top cut has been applied.
    4) The intersections listed in the table represent sections of at least
    3m in excess of 1g/t Au and/or sections of at least 10m in excess of
    0.5g/t Au.
    5) The intersections also represent sections drilled by reverse
    circulation (RC) and/or cored drilling (see Table 2).
    6) The RC portions of the drill holes were sampled at 1-m intervals. Dry
    samples were riffle-split to provide 2 kg samples sent to the
    laboratory. Wet samples were dried in the field, then riffle-split in
    the same way. The cored portion of the drill holes were sampled at
    one metre intervals and cut in half using a diamond saw. Half-core is
    archived at the core storage facility on site while the other half
    was sent to the laboratory.
    7) Samples were sent to ALS Chemex in Ouagadougou for standard
    preparation followed by Fire Assay on a 50g charge.
    8) Certified standards were inserted every 15 samples, field duplicates
    (in the RC portions) about every 20 and blanks about every 30
    samples. The blanks, certified standards and duplicate assays confirm
    that all assays used to compile the intersections quoted here have
    passed Volta's rigorous QA/QC checks.
    9) The assay results of the hole KDH16 are assays produced by Randgold.
    Randgold sampling and assay procedures included QA/QC elements that
    employed the inclusion of certified standards and blanks. Volta is
    currently repeating these assays.

    Section 5450N is 50 meters south of Section 5550N, the results forwhich were released in March 2010.The results for all the holes onSection 5550N (100 meters to the north of the current section) havebeen received by Volta and are currently being processed. Consequently,another press release will follow shortly to present these results.

    Volta's current drill program will test 1,200m strike of the 2,800mlong KMZ zone and 500m of the (greater than)700m long KHZ zone. Theprogram will infill and extend drilling on the Central Area such thatthe KMZ zone is drilled to 50m x 50m spacing from surface to 150m and100m x 50m from 150m to 200m depth.

    Due to new geophysical Information, the company has decided that itwould be better to drill a series of long cross sections across theSouth Area instead of infill drilling. This will mean that the SouthArea will not contribute to Volta's NI43-101 resource estimatescheduled for the end of June 2010.

    The drill program has been optimized with input from SRK Consulting(UK) to ensure that the delivery of the independent resourceconsultant's NI 43-101 compliant resource is delivered before the endof June 2010.
