Mark Thompson – managing director of Talga, said that the large-scale high-grade Vittangi graphite deposits are world-class, providing a unique opportunity to make massive amounts of anode for batteries from minimum ore value.
Only a 1-metre depth of extracted ore has the potential to feed one year of planned 19,500 tpa anode production, which makes the Vittangi project a strategically important resource for global battery manufacturing and decarbonisation efforts, he said.
More about the Vittangi Drill Program
Through the FY21 Vittangi drill program, the company has tested multiple targets of natural graphite, a “critical mineral” defined by the EU and a source of raw material for the company’s integrated lithium-ion battery anode production facility in Sweden.
The initial 56 diamond drillholes for 6,790 metres have already been completed across strategically important development and growth targets. Talga expects to receive the remaining assay results between December 2021 to early 2022.
