Galan Lithium Limited
Galan Lithium Limited is an ASX listed (ASX: GLN) mineral exploration company with rights and rights to earn a 100% interest in lithium brine projects located within the South American Lithium Triangle in Argentina.
Hombre Muerto is proven to host the highest grade and lowest impurity levels within Argentina and is home to Livent Corporation’s El Fenix operation and Galaxy Resources and POSCO’s Sal de Vida projects.
Galan has two projects:
Candelas: a ~15km long by 3-5km wide valley filled channel which project geophysics and drilling have indicated the potential to host a substantial volume of brine and over which a maiden resource estimated 685kt LCE (Oct 2019). Furthermore, Candelas has the potential to provide a substantial amount of processing water by treating its low-grade brines with reverse osmosis, this is without using surface river water from Los Patos River.
Hombre Muerto West (HMW): a ~14km by 1-5km wide of the west coast of Hombre Muerto salar neighbouring Livent Corp to the east. HMW is currently comprised of four concessions and an additional two concessions under an option agreement from Portofino Resources Inc (TSX-V). Geophysics and drilling at HMW demonstrated a significant potential of a deep basin. In March 2020, a maiden resource estimate delivered 1.1Mt of LCE for two of the largest concessions (Pata Pila and Rana de Sal), In June 2020, the resource was upgraded to 1.4Mt of LCE (Indicated) with exploration upside remaining for other concessions in the area.
