PERTH, Australia, Oct. 31, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Galaxy Resources Ltd ("Galaxy") 
is an Australian-based global lithium company with lithium production 
facilities, hard rock mines and brine assets in Australia, China, Canada and 
Argentina. The Company is an integrated lithium mining, chemicals and battery 
company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (Code: GXY) and is a 
member of the S&P/ASX 300 Index.

Galaxy wholly owns the Mt Cattlin project near Ravensthorpe in Western 
Australia where it mines lithium pegmatite ore and processes it on site to 
produce a spodumene concentrate and tantalum by-product. At full capacity, 
Galaxy will process 137,000 tpa of spodumene concentrate which will feed the 
Company's wholly-owned Jiangsu Lithium Carbonate Plant in China's Jiangsu 
province. The Jiangsu Plant has commenced production and will produce 17,000 
tpa of battery grade lithium carbonate, the largest producer in the Asia 
Pacific region and the fourth largest in the world.

Galaxy is also advancing plans to develop the Sal de Vida (70%) lithium and 
potash brine project in Argentina situated in the lithium triangle (where 
Chile, Argentina and Bolivia meet) which is currently the source of 60% of 
global lithium production. Sal de Vida has excellent promise as a future low 
cost brine mine and lithium carbonate processing facility.

Lithium compounds are used in the manufacture of ceramics, glass, electronics 
and are an essential cathode material for long life lithium-ion batteries used 
to power e-bikes and hybrid and electric vehicles. Galaxy is bullish about the 
global lithium demand outlook and is positioning itself to achieve its goal of 
being involved in every step of the lithium supply chain.

Corporate Division

Development Strategy and Rationale for Sal de Vida

During the Quarter, the Company outlined the development strategy for its Sal 
de Vida lithium and potash brine project ("Sal de Vida") in Argentina. Galaxy 
acquired a 70% stake in the highly prospective Sal de Vida project following 
its merger with Lithium One Inc. Sal de Vida offers Galaxy geographical, 
process and cost base diversification from its existing assets in Australia 
and China. Its favourable brine chemistry and prime location mean it is 
expected to become Galaxy's next flagship asset.

Galaxy's plans for Sal de Vida include development of evaporation ponds and a 
battery grade lithium carbonate plant. The Company's preference is to advance 
Sal de Vida's development to be prepared ahead of anticipated spikes in demand 
for lithium carbonate, as demand for lithium-ion batteries for electronics, 
electric vehicles and battery storage grows.

The lithium battery sector continues to be consumer driven and, in the last 
few years, has experienced consistent growth of around 20-25% per annum. The 
utilisation of lithium-ion batteries continues to grow and, significantly, the 
size of lithium-ion batteries is also increasing to fit larger electric 
vehicles and energy storage units. For example, the amount of lithium 
carbonate in one electric car is in the region of 3,000 times more than that 
of a laptop lithium-ion battery.

While lithium carbonate prices are already increasing, Galaxy forecasts 
exponential growth (a 'hockey stick' growth profile) in lithium demand in the 
next five years, driven by the lithium-ion battery sector. The lithium battery 
industry today is worth US$11 billion and expected to grow to US$43 billion by 
2020. Consequently, lithium carbonate feedstock demand is also expected to 
increase 2-3 times by the end of the current decade.

Galaxy also recognises that development lead times on lithium mines and 
projects can be in the vicinity of 4-5 years. Galaxy therefore needs to 
advance the development of Sal de Vida to be positioned and ready for the 
anticipated demand growth. This timeframe would allow Galaxy to fully benefit 
from the potential demand and lock in long term off take contracts.

Galaxy believes that those lithium companies with operating projects in place 
in anticipation of this potential demand will be in the best position to 

Galaxy sees very strong growth ahead in the lithium sector and wants to 
develop Sal de Vida in anticipation of that forecast demand. The Company's 
diversification strategy has been to acquire and develop both hard rock and 
brine lithium operating assets in various geographies. The proposed 
acquisition of Talison Lithium (a hard rock concentrate producer) by Rockwood 
Lithium (a brine based lithium chemical producer) for C$724 million vindicates 
Galaxy's strategy and its view of the long term growth in this market.

The development of Sal de Vida would give Galaxy a presence in three 
continents - Australia, Asia and South America and see it establish itself as 
a global miner and producer of lithium products. Through the Company's Jiangsu 
Lithium Carbonate Plant ("Jiangsu"), Galaxy is already set to become the 
largest producer of battery grade lithium carbonate in the Asia Pacific region 
once it reaches design capacity.

In addition, Galaxy has representation in the world's top three lithium 
battery producing countries - China, Japan and Korea. Galaxy's global partners 
include the top 13 cathode producers in China, Mitsubishi Corporation (Japan), 
Korean Resources Corporation (Korea), LG International (Korea) and GS Caltex 

Although the company is progressing early-stage plans at Sal de Vida, the 
Board has resolved not to make a final investment decision for full scale 
commitment to Sal de Vida until the Jiangsu Plant achieves positive cash flow 
on a sustainable basis.

Sal de Vida

Flag Ship Asset

Galaxy spent a number of years looking for a high quality, undeveloped lithium 
brine project with the aim of adding extra lithium resources and lithium 
carbonate capabilities to its asset portfolio in anticipation of growing 
lithium demand. Sal de Vida's potential production profile is 25,000 tpa of 
battery grade lithium carbonate and 107,000 tpa of potash (KCl) by-product for 
the fertiliser industry. In addition to the 17,000 tpa design capacity of 
Jiangsu, Galaxy would produce 42,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate per annum 
from 2016 onwards.

The Sal de Vida brine chemistry is highly favourable, with high levels of 
lithium and potash, and low levels of magnesium and sulphate impurities. Sal 
de Vida is situated in the renowned 'lithium triangle' at the meeting point of 
Argentina, Chile and Bolivia. It is located adjacent to FMC Lithium's El Fenix 
lithium operation in the Salar del Hombre Muerto, which has been in operation 
for the last 15 years.

The Sal de Vida Pre-Feasibility Study ("PFS") completed in October 2011 
estimated a net present value for the project of US$1.07 billion. The average 
operating cost was estimated at US$1,537 per tonne of finished lithium 
carbonate, generating a net pre-tax cash flow of US$139 million per annum. 
Galaxy is completing a Definitive Feasibility Study ("DFS") on the Sal de Vida 
project and is expected to complete the study in Q1 2013.

Finance Update

During the Quarter, Galaxy announced that the initial repayment of the 
Company's working capital loan to China Construction Bank Limited ("CCB") had 
been successfully re-financed to September 2013. Galaxy had previously stated 
that it was in the process of negotiating with CCB to refinance the repayment 
in its condensed consolidated interim financial reports for the quarter and 
half year ended 30 June 2012. The first repayment of A$9.4 million (RMB 60 
million) is now due in September 2013.

Safety & Environment

There were two lost time injuries recorded for the group during the Quarter. 
The LTIs involved minor injuries - one in Argentina and another in China. 
There were no environmental incidents recorded for the Quarter. 
Resource Division

Sal de Vida Project

The Sal de Vida DFS continues to progress well and is expected to be completed 
in Q1 2013.

Argentinean engineering firm TAGING S.A. ("TAGING"), which specialises in 
Argentinian mining projects with extensive experience in lithium brine 
projects, has been appointed to complete the DFS. International engineering 
company Hatch Ltd ("Hatch") is providing specialist process input for Galaxy 
during the DFS process. Hatch was the designer and EPCM contractor for the 
Jiangsu Plant and also has extensive lithium brine and operational experience 
in South America.

A number of lithium experts to bolster the existing Sal de Vida project team 
were appointed during the Quarter. Most notable is the appointment of lithium 
industry veteran Dr Vijay Mehta as Senior Technical Advisor. Dr Mehta has 45+ 
years of experience in brine based lithium processing technology, including 30 
years at FMC Lithium, where he developed the lithium plant at FMC's Hombre 
Muerto Salar project, which adjoins Sal de Vida.

Key Technical Team includes Dr Vijay Mehta - Senior Technical Advisor, Jerome 
Lukes - Senior Technical Engineer, David Butts - Pond Operation & Design, Dr 
Greg Sheehan - Process Operation and Design, Dr Jingyuan Liu - GM Business 
Readiness. Key Project Management includes Iain Scarr - General Manager 
Argentina, Terry Stark - Project Director, Ernest Burga - Engineering Project 

Environmental Impact Statement

The Environmental and Social Impact Statement ("EIS") for Sal de Vida was 
submitted to the Provincial Environmental Agencies of Salta and Catamarca as 
the Project straddles both provincial boundaries. The EIS has provided 
assessment of the potential environmental impacts of the Project. The Project 
involves construction of evaporation ponds over a 20 square kilometre area in 
the northern basin of the salt pan. The core part of the Project includes a 
lithium carbonate precipitation and purification plant producing battery grade 
lithium carbonate. A separate potash plant producing fertiliser grade potash 
(potassium chloride) is also planned.

Successful Brine Pump Testing

The Company successfully completed a long term pumping test on the first 
proposed production well at Sal de Vida. The successful test involved 
pumping brine from the production well at a constant rate and without faults 
or blockages, over a 30 day period. The pumping of the brine to solar ponds is 
a critical part of a lithium brine operation. Once the brine evaporates, 
concentrated lithium brine is harvested and further processed into lithium 
carbonate.The pump test results will be used to demonstrate capability for 
the long term supply of brine and lithium concentrate to the lithium carbonate 
plant Galaxy plans to build on the Sal de Vida site.

The initial well at Sal de Vida is demonstrates the potential for long term 
supply to proposed solar ponds and lithium carbonate and potash production 
plants, utilising only a fraction of the currently estimated extractable 
resource. The tested well was set at a depth of 53 metres and pumped brine 
to the solar ponds at a rate of 16 litres per second. The maximum drawdown at 
the pumped well was less than 7 metres at end of the test period. The average 
lithium content of pumped water was approximately 760 milligrams per litre 
(mg/L); average potassium content was approximately 8800 mg/L reflecting the 
reserve grades. The brine composition did not change appreciably throughout 
the test.

Definitive Feasibility Study

Fresh water exploration has commenced with several fresh water exploration 
wells being drilled at Los Patos River delta. The Boron solvent extraction 
test work is progressing well with excellent efficiency being achieved from 
the brine. Boron is an impurity in the brine which has to be removed prior to 
lithium carbonate precipitation. Similar calcium and magnesium removal test 
work has also been completed and is demonstrating good results. Potash 
flotation testing conducted in Canada has also demonstrated 
higher-than-expected recoveries and supports the assumptions in the definitive 
feasibility study.

Engineering is progressing well with final process flow diagrams generated in 
preparation for the procurement packages. The valuable learnings from the 
Company's Jiangsu operation have been incorporated including the purification 
technology. The purification technology is used to upgrade lithium carbonate's 
purity to 'battery grade' (99.5% purity, or above) meaning it can be used by 
battery cathode producers for the manufacture of lithium-ion batteries. 
Because of its high value application, battery grade lithium carbonate 
receives a significant price premium to more common technical grades.

Galaxy developed and patented the purification technology in 2010 and has 
successfully proven the technology at its wholly-owned Jiangsu Plant in China. 
Jiangsu's lithium carbonate met all battery grade specifications in July 2012 
and initial sales of battery grade lithium carbonate commenced during the 

Galaxy plans to develop a battery grade lithium carbonate plant at the Sal de 
Vida site, which will mirror the purification plant design at Jiangsu. 
Galaxy's purification technology is designed to be applied to either hard rock 
or brine based lithium carbonate production processes. The DFS currently 
underway on Sal de Vida will incorporate utilisation of the purification 
technology in its flow sheet.

Galaxy's technology will enable it to become the first lithium company in 
South America to produce battery grade lithium carbonate directly from a brine 
salar site. Currently, South American brine lithium producers have to upgrade 
their lithium carbonate to battery grade standard by sending the product off 
site or overseas.

Appointment of Sal de Vida Site Director

Subsequent to the Quarter, the Company appointed Mr Daniel Chavez Diaz as Site 
Director of Sal de Vida Project in Argentina. Mr Chavez Diaz is a chemical 
engineer and highly experienced management executive who has spent the last 20 
years working for lithium giant FMC Corporation ("FMC"). Since 2007, Mr Chavez 
Diaz has been President of FMC subsidiary Minera del Altiplano S.A., and has 
been responsible for overseeing FMC's lithium production facilities in 

Mr Chavez Diaz has also been General Manager of FMC's El Fenix lithium 
operation in the Salar del Hombre Muerto. El Fenix includes evaporation ponds, 
lithium chloride and carbonate plants and shares the same salar (salt pan) as 
Sal de Vida. Other previous management roles at El Fenix include Operations 
Director, Plant Manager and Production Manager. He holds a chemical 
engineering degree from Universidad Nacional de Salta, an Executive Master of 
Business Administration degree, and is currently the President of Unión 
Industrial de Salta.

Mr Chavez Diaz will lead the Sal de Vida team in developing Galaxy's planned 
lithium brine operation and lithium carbonate plant. Galaxy is very pleased to 
have secured someone with Mr Chavez Diaz's lithium industry experience and, 
most importantly, in-country experience. Mr Chavez Diaz has many years of 
experience liaising with provincial and federal authorities, as well as 
establishing and operating businesses in Argentina. He is a noteworthy 
addition to the Sal de Vida team.

Mt Cattlin - Operations

The Galaxy Board reached a decision to temporarily halt production at the Mt 
Cattlin Operation from the end of July 2012. The combination of Mt Cattlin's 
recent strong performance, coupled with the Jiangsu Plant being in a 12-month 
ramp-up phase, resulted in a build-up of internal spodumene inventory levels 
of approximately 12 months' supply of feedstock ahead of the Jiangsu Plant.

The plan remains to pause production until stockpiles for the Jiangsu Plant 
have been reduced to about 2-3 months' supply. The suspension of spodumene 
production will not affect the company's revenue as it begins to sell the 
value-added lithium carbonate product from the Jiangsu Plant.

All Galaxy's Mt Cattlin Operation employees have been retained and will 
concentrate on process upgrade projects and maintenance activities to enable 
re-start of the operation once spodumene inventory levels are re-balanced. 
Mining contractor, Orionstone and subcontractor TDS were successfully 
demobilised from site during July and early August, the whole process being 
undertaken in a professional and incident free manner.

A total of 35,274 tonnes of spodumene product was shipped to the Jiangsu 
Lithium Carbonate Plant in China and 86 tonnes of tantalite concentrate was 
sold to Global Advanced Metals during the September Quarter.

Mt Cattlin continues to provide feedback to the community regarding the 
Company's progress on site through quarterly meetings, and through the local 
community newsletter, and is actively involved with organised community and 
charity events. Positive feedback has been received from the community, and 
from affected contract employees, regarding the assistance packages provided 
by the Company to assist with the relocation of contract employees, during the 
temporary halt to operations at Mt Cattlin.

Jiangsu - Operations

The Company's Jiangsu lithium carbonate operations progressed its 12 month 
ramp-up phase during the Quarter with overall production of 599 tonnes over 
the period. Production met sales demand for the Quarter determined by the 
customer product qualification ramp-up profile. Total sales for the Quarter 
were 586 tonnes, recording revenue of RMB 23.4 million (inclusive of VAT) 
(A$3.7 million)*.

Quality performance has been excellent with the Jiangsu Plant achieving 
battery grade quality across all specifications, meeting the Plant's design. 
This means that as well as adhering to the 99.5% purity criteria, the 
production met the prescribed tolerances for impurities required by Galaxy's 
cathode producing customers.

The focus during the Quarter has been to improve the stability, on line rate 
and utilisation of the back end of the Plant. Improvements to the belt 
filtration operation were achieved with the design two belt filters on line 
and much improved water balance and total dissolved solid levels in the waste 

Process improvement changes were made in the precipitation and purification 
areas to improve scaling and operational issues. Some tank rubber liners were 
replaced to improve product quality and process operability. A new pneumatic 
conveying system to replace the current drag chain conveyors was installed 
during the Quarter which has improved both the quality performance and 
operability of the product end of the Plant.

Sodium sulphate by-product is now achieving good quality and is sold to the 
textile and detergent industry. Slag sales also continued during the Quarter.

Sales & Marketing

Total sales during the Quarter were 586 tonnes of both technical and battery 
grade product. The sales strategy for the ramp-up of the Jiangsu Plant 
centered around selling mainly technical grade product until the battery grade 
product could be qualifiied.

The battery grade lithium carbonate qualification process continued with 
potential battery cathode customers. Production samples have now been sent to 
over 50 potential customers in China for the product testing and qualification 
process. As part of the vigorous qualification process, the whole upstream 
chain and customers, including the final lithium battery customers, are 
involved in the qualification acceptance process.

Feedback from the market has been extremely positive so far. The majority of 
samples have so far passed the first stage testing process, and potential 
customers have commenced taking either larger test samples or commenced trail 
supply. Late in the Quarter, sales of battery grade product commenced, with 46 
tonnes sold to lithium cathode customers.

structure is subject to confidentiality obligations of sales contracts and 
competitor sensitivity.


Production quality continues to be good adhering to the 99.5% purity criteria 
and meeting the prescribed tolerances for impurities required by its cathode 
producing customers. Achieving product quality design and production output at 
a complex chemical plant often takes considerable time however the progress 
made in the Quarter and to date has exceeded the Company's expectations.

The quality of the battery grade lithium carbonate is on par with Galaxy's 
major competitors in China, and better than its competitors in some of the 
impurity levels like Sodium (Na), Magnesium (Mg) and Sulphates (SO4). The 
table below shows the comparative analyses of some of the major suppliers of 
lithium carbonate.

Market Outlook 
Lithium demand in the first half of the year remained robust and the supply 
and demand relatively balanced. The main demand was from the battery segment. 
Chinese demand in H1 2012 was approximately 10% higher than same period last 
year and the forecast for the balance of the year is considered to be higher. 
Prices for both technical and battery grade lithium carbonate in China have 
risen significantly on the back of tight demand and supply fundamentals. 
Chinese lithium carbonate producers lifted domestic lithium carbonate prices 
during the Quarter and the uncontracted spot price for battery grade lithium 
carbonate in China hit levels of up to RMB 45,000/tonne (inclusive of VAT) or 
approximately US$ 7,000/tonne in the months preceding the Quarter. The Company 
also reported that technical grade lithium carbonate prices had followed the 
same trend with uncontracted spot prices up to RMB 40,000/tonne or approx US$ 
Lithium market watcher, Asia Metal Pty Ltd, said in a note published in the 
Quarter that the "mainstream price of battery grade lithium carbonate rose to 
about RMB 42,000-44,000/tonne (US$ 6,650-6,960/tonne inclusive of VAT) and for 
small orders, many suppliers have sold at prices as high as RMB 45,000/tonne 
(US$ 7,120/tonne). 
The price increases in China follow the increases in global lithium product 
prices, including lithium carbonate, announced by major producers Rockwood 
Lithium and FMC Lithium this year. 
Rockwood Lithium announced in early May 2012 to lift global lithium salts 
prices by 22% or US$1,000 per metric tonne, effective 1 July 2012. 
FMC Lithium announced a price increase of 20% on 23 June 2011 and then another 
increase by $1,000/tonne on 18 June 2012. 
Talison Lithium (spodumene supplier) announced a spodumene price increase of 
15% in December 2011 and a further 10% increase on 12 July 2012. 
Galaxy has been pleased to see such buoyant battery grade lithium carbonate 
prices in China, which will ultimately translate into higher revenues from its 
Jiangsu operations. With Jiangsu to reach full capacity in 2013, Galaxy is 
well placed to take advantage of the strong lithium market outlook.
