Jiangsu Plant Operations Update

PERTH, Australia, Dec. 3, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Galaxy Resources Ltd (ASX: GXY) 
("Galaxy" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Jiangsu Plant has 
now successfully completed a planned maintenance shutdown period, which was 
previously advised to the market. As part of the works, the "front end" of the 
plant has been modified to enable lithium carbonate production from higher 
grade spodumene feedstock supply from alternative sources including Talison 
Lithium. 
The plant formerly operated on solely Mt Cattlin sourced spodumene feedstock 
and has now transitioned over to allow a wider range of feedstock. The 
modifications works were completed smoothly and the plant will now be 
operating on higher grade feedstock which is expected to enhance throughput 
capacity.The ongoing production ramp up is part of Galaxy's strategy to 
focus on delivering high-purity lithium products and a key component of the 
strategy to reach break-even levels of production at the Jiangsu Plant by the 
end of the year. 
A full production report for the fourth quarter results will be contained in 
the December 2013 quarterly report. 
Separately, Galaxy is happy to report that it has received a A$918,000 
reimbursement from the Australian Taxation Office, pursuant to the Research 
and Development Tax Incentive Program in respect of the year ended 31 December 
2012 (Galaxy's financial year ends on 31 December).
