Galan Lithium Limited (ASX: GLN) (Galan or the Company) is pleased to provide a progress update report for its 100% owned Hombre Muerto West (HWM) Project (the Project) in Catamarca Province, Argentina. The Project has no third party royalty or offtake commitments.

As planned, ponds construction for the pilot plant has commenced and progressing well with the aim for the pilot ponds system to be operational in Q1 2022. The ponds will be filled with HMW’s brine to continue with the tests of the evaporation process targeting high-grade lithium concentrations of 6% Li and low impurities.

The construction of the new temporary camp at HMW is well advanced and it should be operational early January. Once completed, Galan will have access to two fully functional camps (the other at Candelas) to support the ongoing activities associated with the HMW studies. A larger, permanent camp will be completed during 2022.
