Sales revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2023 amounted to $ Nil compared to revenue of $ Nil for the quarter ended June 30, 2023. Shipments of concentrate commenced during the third quarter of 2019. Concentrate sales provisional revenues totalled US$ 255,000 (CAD$ 419,000) and US$ 516,000 (CAD$ 851,000) during the three and six months ended June 30 2023 compared to US $ Nil and US$ 219,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022. Until the mine commences commercial production, the net proceeds from concentrate sales are being offset against development assets.

The Net Loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2023 amounted to $ 1,355,516 (2022: $1,580,168) and the cash outflow from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital for the quarter ended June 30, 2023 amounted to $ 793,674 (2022: $1,738,055). The main difference in the reduction in net loss is due to a reduction in the value attributed to stock based compensation and an increase in financing activities from 2021.

The Company had a cash balance of $ 586,464 at June 30, 2023 compared to $ 903,455 at June 30, 2022. The working capital deficit at June 30, 2023 amounted to $ 12,059,946 compared to a working capital deficit of $ 3,687,844 at June 30, 2022.

1. Going Concern

These unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which contemplates that Galantas Gold Corporation (the "Company") will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of business. In assessing whether the going concern assumption is appropriate, management takes into account all available information about the future, which is at least, but is not limited to, twelve months from the end of the reporting period. Management is aware, in making its assessment, of uncertainties related to events or conditions that may cast doubt on the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The Company's future viability depends on the consolidated results of the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary Cavanacaw Corporation ("Cavanacaw"). Cavanacaw has a 100% shareholding in both Flintridge Resources Limited ("Flintridge") who are engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of gold properties, mainly in Omagh, Northern Ireland and Omagh Minerals Limited ("Omagh") who are engaged in the exploration of gold properties, mainly in the Republic of Ireland. The Omagh mine has an open pit mine, which was in production until 2013 when production was suspended and is reported as property, plant and equipment and as an underground mine which having established technical feasibility and commercial viability in December 2018 has resulted in associated exploration and evaluation assets being reclassified as an intangible development asset and reported as property, plant and equipment.

The going concern assumption is dependent upon forecast cash flows being met and further financing currently being negotiated. The management's assumptions in relation to future levels of production, gold prices and mine operating and capital costs are crucial to forecast cash flows being achieved. Should production be significantly delayed, revenues fall short of expectations or operating costs and capital costs increase significantly, there may be insufficient cash flows to sustain day to day operations without seeking further finance.

Negotiations with current finance providers to extend short-term loans have commenced, are progressing positively and the maturity dates for both the G&F Phelps Ltd. ("G&F Phelps") and Ocean Partners UK Ltd. ("Ocean Partners") loans are expected to be extended beyond March 31, 2023 (see notes 10 and 14).

During the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company raised gross proceeds of $11M through the issuance of shares to investors and the exercise of warrants to meet the financial requirements of the Company for the foreseeable future. During the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company raised gross proceeds of $3M through the issuance of shares to investors. Based on the financial projections prepared, the directors believe it's appropriate to prepare the unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements on the going concern basis.

As at June 30, 2023, the Company had a deficit of $73,213,300 (December 31, 2022 - $70,464,170). Comprehensive loss for the six months ended June 30, 2023 was $2,123,213 (six months ended June 30, 2022 - $5,085,696). These conditions raise material uncertainties which may cast significant doubt as to whether the Company will be able to continue as a going concern. However, management believes that it will continue as a going concern. However, this is subject to a number of factors including market conditions. These unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements do not reflect adjustments to the carrying values of assets and liabilities, the reported expenses and financial position classifications used that would be necessary if the going concern assumption was not appropriate. These adjustments could be material.

2. Incorporation and Nature of Operations

The Company was formed on September 20, 1996 under the name Montemor Resources Inc. on the amalgamation of 1169479 Ontario Inc. and Consolidated Deer Creek Resources Limited. The name was changed to European Gold Resources Inc. by articles of amendment dated July 25, 1997. On May 5, 2004, the Company changed its name from European Gold Resources Inc. to Galantas Gold Corporation. The Company was incorporated to explore for and develop mineral resource properties, principally in Europe. In 1997, it purchased all of the shares of Omagh which owns a mineral property in Northern Ireland, including a delineated gold deposit. Omagh obtained full planning and environmental consents necessary to bring its property into production.

The Company entered into an agreement on April 17, 2000, approved by shareholders on June 26, 2000, whereby Cavanacaw, a private Ontario corporation, acquired Omagh. Cavanacaw has established an open pit mine to extract the Company's gold deposit near Omagh, Northern Ireland. Cavanacaw also has developed a premium jewellery business founded on the gold produced under the name Galántas Irish Gold Limited ("Galántas"). As at July 1, 2007, the Company's Omagh mine began production and in 2013 production was suspended. On April 1, 2014, Galántas amalgamated its jewelry business with Omagh.

On April 8, 2014, Cavanacaw acquired Flintridge. Following a strategic review of its business by the Company during 2014 certain assets owned by Omagh were acquired by Flintridge.

The Company's operations include the consolidated results of Cavanacaw, and its wholly-owned subsidiaries Omagh, Galántas and Flintridge.

The Company's common shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") and London Stock Exchange AIM under the symbol GAL. On September 1, 2021, the Company's common shares started trading under the symbol GALKF on the OTCQX in the United States. The primary office is located at The Canadian Venture Building, 82 Richmond Street East, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5C 1P1.

3. Basis of Preparation

Statement of compliance

The Company applies International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board and interpretations issued by the International Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee ("IFRIC"). These unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 - Interim Financial Reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information required for full annual financial statements.

The policies applied in these unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements are based on IFRS issued and outstanding as of August 28, 2023 the date the Board of Directors approved the statements. The same accounting policies and methods of computation are followed in these unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements as compared with the most recent annual consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended December 31, 2022. Any subsequent changes to IFRS that are given effect in the Company's annual consolidated financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2023 could result in restatement of these unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements.

(i) On January 26, 2023, the Company announced that it entered into an agreement to acquire a 100% interest and the exclusive rights to explore and develop the Gairloch Project from the owners of the Gairloch Estate lands. The Company has acquired exploration and developments rights for an initial payment of GBP 347,000 and annual payments of GBP 69,000 beginning in year 6.

The lease agreement will continue for 30 years and will be renewable at the election of Galantas, upon 90 days' prior written notice and upon the approval of the lessor, not to be unreasonably withheld, for a further 20-year period, assuming all conditions of this agreement have been met satisfactorily according to the Lessor, acting reasonably, in respect of the Galantas' conduct and operations. Galantas may terminate the agreement with 18 months' notice.

Galantas made a payment of $580,392 (GBP 347,000) representing payment for the first five years of the lease. If the exploration phase continues past the fifth anniversary of the effective date of the agreement, Galantas will pay the lessor GBP 69,400 index linked per lease year for each such lease year following the fifth anniversary of the effective date, with such payment to be made at the commencement of each such lease year.

During any mining phase, Galantas will pay the lessor GBP 50,000 index linked per lease year, with such payment to be made at the commencement of each such lease year. Galantas will grant a 5% net profits interest royalty (the "NPI"), calculated according to standard industry terms and practices with the option by the Lessor to convert the NPI to a 2% net smelter returns royalty, calculated according to standard industry terms and practices.

8. Decommissioning Liability

The Company's decommissioning liability is a result of mining activities at the Omagh mine in Northern Ireland. The Company estimated its decommissioning liability at June 30, 2023 based on a risk-free discount rate of 1% (December 31, 2022 - 1%) and an inflation rate of 1.50% (December 31, 2022 - 1.50%). The expected undiscounted future obligations allowing for inflation are GBP 330,000 and based on management's best estimate the decommissioning is expected to occur over the next 5 to 10 years. On June 30, 2023, the estimated fair value of the liability is $605,415 (December 31, 2022 - $582,441). Changes in the provision during the six months ended June 30, 2023 are as follows:

12. Net Loss per Common Share

The calculation of basic and diluted loss per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 was based on the loss attributable to common shareholders of $1,355,516 and $2,749,130, respectively (three and six months ended June 30, 2022 - $1,580,168 and $2,995,980, respectively) and the weighted average number of common shares outstanding of 114,112,719 and 109,014,481, respectively (three and six months ended June 30, 2022 - 84,140,878 and 81,353,664, respectively) for basic and diluted loss per share.

16. Contingency

During the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company's subsidiary Omagh received a payment demand from Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs ("HMRC") in the amount of $511,724 (GBP 304,290) in connection with an aggregate levy arising from the removal of waste rock from the mine site during 2008 and early 2009. Omagh believed this claim to be without merit. An appeal was lodged with the Tax Tribunals Service and the hearing started at the beginning of March 2017 and following a number of adjournments was completed in August 2018. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Tax Tribunals Service issued their judgement dismissing the appeal by Omagh in respect of the assessments. A provision has now been included in the unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements in respect of the aggregates levy plus interest and penalty.

There is a contingent liability in respect of potential additional interest which may be applied in respect of the aggregates levy dispute. Omagh is unable to make a reliable estimate of the amount of the potential additional interest that may be applied by HMRC.

17. Event After the Reporting Period

(i) On July 25, 2023, 125,000 warrants with exercise price of $0.48 expired unexercised.
