Expert Comments:

Peter Chilton, Edison Investment Research (5/15/15)
"Galaxy Resources Ltd. is advancing plans to develop the Sal de Vida lithium and potash brine project. . .the company has entered into an operating and option agreement with a third party for its Mt. Cattlin mine, which had been on care and maintenance since early 2013. Under this agreement, Galaxy will receive lease fee and royalty income."

Strachan Corporate (5/14/15)
"Galaxy Resources Ltd. has a clean balance sheet supported by AU$62.4M of convertible note debt and ~AU$50M of cash with which to progress development of its Sal de Vida project. . .development of a low-cost lithium and potash brine project at its 96%-held Sal de Vida project in Argentina will place the company well down the cost curve as a competitive supplier of lithium compounds. . .expansion opportunities and a long-life project position Galaxy as a major player in this rapidly growing industry."

RB Milestone Group (4/14/15)
"Galaxy Resources Ltd. recently sold its operating asset in China, the Jiangsu lithium carbonate plant, to Sichuan Tianqi Lithium Industries Inc. for an enterprise value of $173.2M. This has significantly improved the company's balance sheet and provides it with considerable financial muscle to advance its Sal de Vida lithium and potash project."

"One company poised to benefit from the idea of optionality is Galaxy Resources Ltd. The company has recently closed on the sale of its Jiangsu lithium carbonate plant and now will have something in high demand in the mining business—cash in the amount of approximately AU$30M. Galaxy has also entered into a binding agreement with a company named General Mining Corp. to have it produce tantalum from the Mt Cattlin mine for a period of three years with the option to purchase the mine for AU$30M. Galaxy will generate cash—approximately AU$2.5M per year—plus a royalty from this agreement. . .optionality in the metals sector is a key strategy at this point in the cycle. Galaxy can go in a number of different directions." read more >

"Galaxy Resources Ltd. started producing with a very ambitious project. It started developing a spodumene deposit in Australia and a lithium plant in China. It also wanted to develop a lithium battery manufacturing plant. . .Galaxy has sold its Jiangsu lithium plant to Sichuan Tianqi Lithium Industries Inc. for $230M to focus on its Argentina and Australia projects.
