VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(May 23, 2012) – Galaxy Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GXY) (the “Company” or “Galaxy”) is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement to acquire a 100-per-cent interest in the Laurier Graphite Property, Ontario.

Laurier Graphite Property

The Laurier Graphite property is located in Laurier Township, ON, approximately 40 km SSE of North Bay, ON. The property is located in the highly prospective Central Metasedimentary Belt of the Grenville geological province, host to many active graphite projects. The host rocks for the target zone are graphitic paragneisses. The property properties cover a total of approximately 2300 hectares on 46 mining claims.

The property was described in Ontario Geological Survey (OGS) Open File Report 5649, published in 1987. The report is entitled “Graphite in the Central Gneiss Belt of the Grenville Province in Ontario.” The property has road access from Highway 11, which is 5 km to the west. The report describes four graphite occurrences, two of which are currently being prepared for production. These are referred to in the report as Butt Township (which is the Kearney Mine) and Maria Township (the Bissett Creek deposit).

Work performed on the Laurier property by the OGS described N-S trending graphitic schist units varying from 25 to 250m in width with 1.0mm (16 mesh) graphite flakes disseminated throughout. In addition, a 1-2m wide vein of massive graphite was reported.

The Company cautions that it has not verified the quality and accuracy of the historic data reported in this news release, which predate the introduction of National Instrument 43-101 and cautions readers not to rely upon them. The historic information was generated from the OGS report cited above. This source is believed to be reliable; however, it has not been confirmed by the company’s Qualified Person.

A field program, consisting of ground geophysics (VLF/Mag), prospecting, mapping and sampling, is planned for June 2012.

Chris Healey, President of Galaxy commented, “With this acquisition, along with the Sun and Buckingham graphite properties previously announced, Galaxy now has an excellent portfolio of quality graphite projects. With the recently closed financing, Galaxy is in a position to aggressively explore these projects starting in the coming weeks and to expedite them to an advanced stage.”
