Tech minerals company, Talga Resources (ASX:TLG) has uncovered an exceedingly wide zone of graphite during its diamond core drilling program underway at the Niska prospect in North Sweden.

The width of the western unit exceeds the widest drilled on the whole Vittangi project to date, and is more than three times the average width of the Nunasvaara resource which is currently the subject of a pre-feasibility study.

Talga Resource's Managing Director, Mark Thompson says “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".

Assay results are expected in May and an initial resource estimate is expected before the end of the June quarter.

Shares in Talga Resources (ASX:TLG) closed 6.35 per cent lower at $0.59 yesterday.
