In this episode we chat to Prashant Chintawar, MD & CEO, Volt Resources who are a critical minerals and battery materials company listed on the ASX and are an established graphite producer with an operating mine in Ukraine and a developer of wholly owned Bunyu Project in Tanzania – one of the largest graphite deposits in the world. Volt acquired interest in three gold projects in Guinea, West Africa and three license applications in Serbia, that are prospective for lithium-borate mineralization.
PC is an entrepreneurial global business leader, with a track record of creation and scaling up of new specialty material and battery material businesses, growing existing chemical businesses, product profit and loss management, negotiating and structuring deals and industrialization and tells us more about the company, the projects they are involved in and more around the battery industry.
- As a business stalwart, Prashant has not just founded them, but also grown them, and therefore can speak as both founder and manager.
- Mining in Ukraine is a definitely challenging due to the geopolitical climate. The power is unreliable, for instance, plus the supply chain is difficult.
- True leaders can surmount any barriers to action and provide solutions that allow others to fulfil their potential.
- It’s critical to have a team with real world experience – those who have built and sold products. This allows you to be far more agile in the sector.
