We investigate the electronic structure of a boride superconductor, ZrB12 employing high resolution photoemission spectroscopy and ab initio band structure calculations. Sharp B 1s and Zr 3d core level spectra with distinct signature of the satellites exhibits good quality of the sample. The band structure results indicate dominant contribution from the B 2p electronic states in the valence band. However, the experimental spectra indicate large contribution from the Zr 4d states near Fermi level suggesting their important role in the superconductivity.
