One of the largest and highest quality undeveloped lithium brine assets in the world
Galaxy’s flagship project, the Sal de Vida project (“Sal de Vida”), is recognised as a tier 1 lithium brine asset due to its large scale, high grade, low impurity brine chemistry and ease of extraction.
Sal de Vida is wholly owned by Galaxy and is located on the Salar del Hombre Muerto in the Puna region of the Central Andean Plateau in the Catamarca Province, Argentina. Catamarca is a proven mining jurisdiction and Galaxy has strong relationships with key stakeholders who are also supportive of Sal de Vida’s development.
The asset has a JORC-compliant Ore Reserve estimate of 1.1 million tonnes of retrievable lithium carbonate equivalent (“LCE”) and 4.9 million tonnes of LCE in Mineral Resources, supporting a long life, low cost operation.

Until mid-2019 Galaxy envisaged development as a single staged project by employing a conventional evaporation flowsheet to produce battery grade lithium carbonate at site and potash as a by-product.
Galaxy has since made significant breakthroughs from both a technical and development perspective which will enhance project economics as the project progresses.
