Sales revenues for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015 consisted of jewelry sales and amounted to CDN$ 13,774 and CDN$ 14,897 respectively (2014: CDN $ Nil and $ Nil respectively). Following the suspension of production during the fourth quarter of 2013 there have not been any shipments of concentrates from the mine.

Cost of sales, which includes production costs and inventory movement, for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015 amounted to CDN$ 114,656 and $ 184,653 respectively (2014: CDN$ 99,446 and $ 176,680). Production costs were mainly in connection with ongoing care and maintenance costs at the Omagh mine site.

The Company had cash balances of $ 198,696 at June 30, 2015 compared to $ 458,849 at June 30, 2014. The working capital deficit at June 30, 2015 amounted to $ 4,273,046 compared to a working capital deficit of $ 2,607,058 at June 30, 2014.

During the first quarter of 2015 the Company completed a Private Placement for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately UK£ 316,677 through the issuing of 10,599,999 new shares at a price of UK£ 0.03/CDN$0.05727 per common share. The proceeds were used for working capital purposes and to finance the Company's continued commitments in regard to its underground planning application, now granted.

Subsequent to June 30, 2015 Galantas completed a non-brokered private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of $ 2,400,000 (approximately UK£ 1,189,000). The placement comprised of the issue of 20 million units, each unit comprising of one common share and one share purchase warrant. The price of each unit was $ 0.12 (approximately UK£ 0.06). Each warrant entitles the holder to acquire a further common share of the Company at a price of $ 0.16 per share for a period twelve months from the date the subscription was closed. A four month hold period from closing will apply. The majority of the placement was taken up by Mr. Ross Beaty who acquired 16,000,000 Units resulting in an interest before the exercise of warrants of 14.9% of Galantas issued and outstanding shares. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the placement for exploration, initiating the development of the underground Omagh gold-mine and for working capital purposes.

Production

Production at the Omagh mine remains suspended. However the granting of planning consent during the second quarter for an underground operation at the Omagh site will permit the continuation and expansion of gold mining. The underground mine will utilize the same processing methods and will be the first underground gold mine, of any scale, in Ireland. The robust results of the recent economic study, now with the positive planning determination, are expected to lead to the establishment of a sound business based on the Omagh gold property. The strategy is to establish the underground mine as soon as finance is available and look for further expansion of gold resources on the property, which has many un-drilled targets.

Exploration

The Company has not carried out any exploration drilling in the vicinity of the mine site following the suspension of drilling during 2013 pending the availability of cash for future exploration. In total, 17,348 metres were drilled following the commencement of the programme in March 2011. Channel sampling was also carried out, during this period, on the Joshua, Kearney and Kerr vein systems. Assay results released to date from both the drilling and channel sampling programmes have been encouraging with significant gold intersections being identified. Additional funding is now available and the programme will continue and further drilling is planned.

The granting of a further two prospecting licences in the Republic of Ireland (ROI) during 2014 brought the total number of licences held in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to eleven covering a total area to 766.5 square kilometres. Fieldwork, which commenced within the three more recently acquired ROI licences during the first quarter of 2015, continued into the second quarter with regional samples being collected, analysed and evaluated in all three licence areas. A total of thirty samples were collected, thirteen of which yielded notable results. Most interesting were sediments collected from first order and second order streams which drained an upland area situated close to a distinct magnetic anomaly. These showed gold grades of 1.6, 1.9 and 2.5 parts per million (ppm) (g/t) (see press release dated June 22, 2015).

Permitting

In June 2015 the Company reported that the Minister of Environment, Northern Ireland, Mr. Mark H. Durkan, had granted planning consent for an underground gold mine at the Omagh site. The planning consent will permit the continuation and expansion of gold mining and is expected to create hundreds of jobs locally. The positive decision is the result of 3 years of examination of environmental and other factors regarding the application. Included were environmental studies by NIEA (Northern Ireland Environment Agency) and independent specialists. The consent includes operating and environmental conditions which the Company has reviewed. Some conditions require clarification but appear workable with some modifications to operating and construction methodology. A number of conditions precedent to development are required to be satisfied and the Company is carrying those out.

Roland Phelps, President & CEO, Galantas Gold Corporation, commented, "The receipt of the planning permit is very significant for Galantas. Our open pit gold mine, operated until recently, is the only one in Ireland. It had excellent environmental standards, monitored with detailed studies by NIEA and used a safe processing methodology to produce a smelter concentrate. We recently completed a substantial fund-raising which is being used to push our exploration and mine development plans forward."

The detailed results and Management Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) are available on www.sedar.com and www.galantas.com and the highlights in this release should be read in conjunction with the detailed results and MD&A. The MD&A provides an analysis of comparisons with previous periods, trends affecting the business and risk factors.
