His last position at SQM was as vice president of sales of lithium, iodine and industrial chemicals where he formulated the commercial strategy and marketing of the company’s industrial products.

Testament “to the calibre of our projects”

Galan Lithium chairman Nathan McMahon said: “People with Daniel’s experience, particularly in the South American lithium industry, are not easy to find.

“That Daniel agreed to join the Galan board is further testament to the calibre of our projects and the quality of work we have achieved to date.

“Daniel’s experience will assist us greatly at this important time in the development of the Candelas project with the imminent announcement of the mineral resource estimate, the pre-feasibility study slated for commencement during the fourth quarter 2019 and as we potentially transition from explorer to developer.”
