Talga’s resource growth strategy

Talga also reiterated its strategy in today’s update.

TLG plans to build a vertically integrated operation to supply graphite anode products to lithium-ion battery manufactures.

Talga cited figures suggesting Europe will require around 1 million tonnes of anode per year by 2031.

TLG revealed that 20 battery manufacturers have received Talga’s anode samples as part of offtake and financing arrangements in preparation for commercial production in 2024.

Talga said its ongoing drilling campaigns are designed to increase its graphite resource.

Commenting on the resource expansion target, Talga said:

The resource revision aims to further define what is Europe’s largest and highest-grade graphite mineral resource to support and optimise potential future anode production expansions.’

Now, while lithium has snatched much attention away from other battery metals, the mass adoption of EVs is set to boost demand in metals like copper, nickel, cobalt, and graphite.

In fact, the flood of capital into the lithium sector is making our team at Money Morning think there’s a much smarter way to play the EV boom.

It involves what you can call lithium’s little brother.
