The Board of Voss Net is pleased to announce that the resolutions proposed at

Shareholders. The Acquisition and Placing remain conditional on Admission.

On Admission, the Concert Party will be interested in aggregate in 11,637,401

As referred to above, a resolution to approve the consolidation of the ordinary

to commence at 8.00 a.m. on Friday 29 September 2006, under the Company's new
name of Tanzania Gold plc (AIM: TZG).

Completion of the Acquisition is due to take place on 29 September 2006. With
effect from completion of the Acquisition, Clive Sinclair-Poulton will be
