Talga has commenced a new 30-hole drilling program at its Vittangi Graphite Project in northern Sweden, Europe’s largest graphite resource.
The Perth-based company started trial mining at Vittangi in September 2021.
The new drilling program builds on the successful 2021 drilling program and will test the electromagnetic conductors and JORC exploration targets linking the company’s Niska South and Niska North resources.
The drilling program is expected to be completed in May 2022, after which Talga will revise its graphite resources towards the end of 2022.
“Talga’s Vittangi Graphite Project is a world class Tier-1 asset for battery anode production whose scale remains to be fully defined,” said Talga Managing Director, Mark Thompson in an ASX announcement.
“We are excited to start drilling the Niska Link prospect to support future expansion options, aligned with our customers’ battery production roadmaps and strong graphite anode demand.”
