Digesting the quarterly report

The Talga share price has been in focus since the company released its quarterly activities report on Friday, after market close. Since Friday’s close, shares are up 13%.

Among the highlights over the past quarter, the company noted its battery anode product, Talnode-C was certified as the greenest graphite anode in the world. The independent Life Cycle Assessment was carried out by Hitachi ABB Power Grids. According to the release, Talnode-C produces “96% less greenhouse gas than incumbent EV battery anode produced in China”.

The company also reported that construction of its Electric Vehicle Anode qualification plant in Sweden is proceeding on track. Meanwhile the development of its anode and graphene products from its existing facilities in Germany, Japan and the United Kingdom are continuing as planned.

On the mining side, Talga commenced trial mining during the quarter at its Vittangi Graphite Project in Sweden. It plans to use the feed ore for expanded testing of Talnode-C.

Commenting on the company’s progress, Talga’s managing director, Mark Thompson said:

During the quarter we made strides in achieving key long term strategic goals, focusing on financing our first commercial anode project and toward future expansions to become the largest anode producer outside of Asia.

We have also been successful in our exploration and trial mining of what is already Europe’s largest natural graphite resource, towards securing the critical raw material needed to produce the world’s greenest anode for more sustainable batteries.

As at 30 September, Talga had a cash balance of $46 million.
