The Jalkunen graphite project (Talga 100%) is located approximately 50km southeast of Talga's Vittangi project and contains multiple graphite deposits defined to date including the Jalkunen JORC 2012 Resource of 31.5Mt @ 14.9% graphite.
In March 2015 Talga completed a diamond drilling program at the Jalkunen prospect covering some 800 metres of strike and intersected a high grade graphite deposit averaging 50‐60 metres true thickness (see image below for cross section) dipping favourably at ~8 degrees from horizontal.
A maiden 2012 JORC compliant Inferred resource was estimated to total 31.5 Mt @ 14.9% Cg for Jalkunen using a 10% graphite cut off grade. This compares well to historic drilling by the Geological Survey of Sweden that intersected 50m @ 15.4% Cg (1982) and their analysis of nine thin sections indicating graphite flake lengths upto 400 microns. The high grade and exceptionally shallow dip of the graphite orebody (approximately 18 degrees) offer significant advantages in the event of development at Jalkunen.

The quantity and quality of the other graphite occurences at Jalkunen offer potential for massive additional scale to be added to Talga's growth pipleline. At the Lautakoski prospect graphite rich metasediments can be traced over at least 6.6km strike and drilling results to 45m @ 19.4% Cg and 9m @ 35.0% Cg. The Suinavaara prospect is a priority EM conductor along strike of Lautakoski and the Nybrännan prospect is a historical graphite mine where trenchs results include 14m @ 33.3%Cg.
