The Jalkunen graphite project is located approximately 50km southeast of Talga's Vittangi project and has a total JORC 2012 resource of 31.5Mt at 14.9% graphite ("Cg").
Jalkunen Graphite Project – JORC (2012)
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 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 (ASX:TLG 27 August 2015).
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 up to 400 microns. The high grade and exceptionally shallow dip of the graphite orebody (approximately 18 degrees) offer significant advantages in the event of development.
