The Talisker North Coal Project is a notional coal project approximately 650 kilometres north of Perth which has been touted by Attila Resources.

Exploration program

The company has indicated that the exploration program is at an early stage. The company states that "an initial exploration program would focus on geophysical surveys and aircore drilling. There is potential to define thermal coal resources within the project area.[1]

In its June 2012 quarterly report the company states that the initial drilling at the northern end of its exploration area only resulted in "thin coal seams" being found.[2] Attila subsequently reported that it found a coal seam which varied between 3.5 metres and 4.3 metres but at a depth ranging between 47 and 91 metres. Attila has stated it plans to undertake further drilling in the hope of defining a 50 to 100 million tonne resource. While touted as a potential export project through Carnarvon, no export infrastructure currently exists.[3]
