The hole in question is located 2.5km from the maiden drill hole at the project that recorded "outstanding results" and looks to have "geology (that) largely correlates" with the discovery hole.
Assays are expected next week.
A further two holes are planned as part of the initial five-hole campaign, with Galan targeting brines near Galaxy Resources and POSCO's pre-development project.
