OPERATIONS

Mineral Resources

Please also refer to the JORC Code Tables, 2012 Edition, as detailed in Annexure 1 of the Galan ASX announcement dated 24 October 2022 entitled “Spectacular 2.5x Increase in HMW Resource – Now 5.8 Mt LCE @ 866 mg/l Li (76% in Measured Category)”.

The original Mineral Resource Estimate (“MRE”) was completed by SRK Consulting (Australasia) (“SRK”) in March 2020 (ASX: GLN 12 March 2020) and was based upon results from 1,054 metres of drilling within the Pata Pila, Rana de Sal and Casa del Inca tenement holdings at Hombre Muerto West. The hydrogeologic domains were constrained to logged units within the drillholes and supported by the interpretation of Controlled Source Audio-Frequency Magnetotellurics (CSMAT) and Transient Electromagnetic (TEM) geophysical profiles. Mineral Resource Estimates for lithium (reported as Li2CO3 equivalent) and potassium (KCl equivalent) were completed by SRK.

Table 1 summarises the updated MRE, incorporating the results of the 2021-2022 exploration campaign and reporting in accordance with the JORC Code (2012) guidelines. According to SRK, the Hombre Muerto West MRE is hosted within geologically well-defined zones of high-grade lithium mineralisation, including significant mineralised hydrogeologic domains.

Recycling Key to Closing Supply/Demand Gap for EV Battery Materials

Recycling Key to Closing Supply/Demand Gap for EV Battery Materials

The global market share for electric car sales is expected to rise to 35 percent by 2030, up from less than 25 percent in previous forecasts, according to the International Energy Agency's 2023 Global EV Outlook Report.

However, the supply of electric battery materials can’t keep up with this exploding level of demand. Analysts say that EV production is pulling ahead of mine production for critical battery materials such as cobalt, manganese, lithium and nickel.

This is having a serious impact on prices. If the EV industry wants to overtake the internal combustion engine (ICE) sector, it will need to manage material prices by curbing supply imbalances. Advancement in battery recycling technology may be the answer.
