Talga Resources Ltd is a multi-national company focused on graphite mining and graphene supply and application development. The company mines graphite in Sweden, operates a test processing facility in Germany under Talga Advanced Materials GmbH and has a product development arm, Talga Technologies UK Ltd located in Cambridge, UK.
Talga is developing graphene products for additives to coatings, batteries, concrete and epoxy composites. Testing of Talga materials and products is underway with a range of corporations including industrial conglomerates Tata and BASF subsidiary Chemetall, UK listed Haydale, flexible battery maker Zinergy and German based Jena Batteries.
Talga Resources is a public company trading on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX: TLG). In June 2016 the company raised $10 million in a placement.

Talga launches fully underwritten USD$18.8M placement to accelerate Vittangi Anode Project development
Talga has announced the launch of a fully underwritten institutional placement to raise USD$18.8 Million (AUD$25 million) before costs and a non-underwritten Share Purchase Plan to eligible shareholders to raise up to USD$7.5 Million (AUD$10 million).
Talga will use the proceeds to fund the Electric Vehicle Anode (EVA) pilot plant as part of the development of the Vittangi Anode Project located in northern Sweden.
Battery anode developer Talga Resources has announced that it has received a commitment for a ~AU$1.8 million (around USD1.3 million) UK Government grant to complete a feasibility study into the commerciality of a Talga UK Anode Refinery.
The UK government has recently announced a series of economic stimulus packages, including a £1 billion Automotive Transformation Fund (“ATF”), towards boosting the domestic electric vehicle and lithium-ion battery economy in collaboration between the Advanced Propulsion Centre, the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy, Innovate UK and the Department for International Trade.
Talga Resources has provided an update on the commercial progress of its graphene-enhanced silicon anode lithium-ion battery product Talnode-Si. Following encouraging early test results, further technical and commercial development of Talnode-Si has been underway at Talga’s facilities in Europe.
Results from this latest phase of development reportedly show continued success of Talga’s silicon anode approach which uses lower-cost metallurgical-grade silicon for a high-energy density anode with mass-producibility potential.
Talga Resources has announced receiving firm commitments from investors to raise gross proceeds of A$10.0 Million (around USD$7.2 Million).
Talga shared that it sees the strongly supported placement as reflecting significant investor interest as the Company progresses development of its facility in Sweden to produce ultra-low emission coated anode for greener lithium-ion batteries.
Australia-based battery graphene anode producer Talga has entered an agreement with European lithium-ion battery giant Farasis Energy Europe (Farasis). Talga will supply coated anode products for evaluation in Farasis batteries.
Talga sources its graphene and graphite in the north of Sweden, from where the company produces coated ‘active’ anode products which it will now, according to their agreement, supply to Farasis.
