Graphite: Talga Resources thinks it may have a new ‘Nunasvaara-type’ source in Sweden

Talga (ASX:TLG) says graphite intercepts from its north Sweden project are “the widest to date”.
The company says intercepts from a section they call Niska hit 60-75m, the best so far from the Vittangi project and three times the width of the resource at another section dubbed Nunasvaara.
A drilling program was looking at an area 1-2km northeast of Nunasvaara. The first hole found similar graphite and further drilling confirmed true widths of 60-75m from the western unit and 15-20m from the eastern unit.
Pictures say it best – here are some of the Niska cores:
Nunasvaara contains a resource of 12.3Mt at 25.5 per cent total carbon in graphite form (Cg).
“The proximity to the current Nunasvaara resources, visual similarity of the core and substantial widths far exceeding anything else drilled at the Vittangi project to date suggests that Niska is potentially a significant discovery in the making,” said Talga managing director Mark Thompson.
