Golden Share Announces Satisfactory Vanadium Redox Flow Battery Phase Two Trial

Date: Oct 17, 2018

Golden Share Resources Corporation (“Golden Share” or the “Company”) (GSH) is pleased to announce the satisfactory results of its phase two trial under its letter of intent with Hunan Vanadium Valley New Energy Technology Co., Ltd. (“HVVNET”) of China.

Based on the successful phase one trial, the phase two trial was conducted during the summer of 2018, in Changsha, a city in southern China known for its hot, humid summers. The phase two trial successfully supported a wider temperature operating range, particular at higher temperatures, which is regarded as a specific reliability improvement of the licensed vanadium electrolyte developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. During the phase two trial, the licensed vanadium electrolyte was continually and stably operating, without any cooling being applied, at 113° Fahrenheit or 45° Celsius (with an air temperature of approximately 95° Fahrenheit or 35° Celsius). The licensed vanadium electrolyte has advantages over previous generations, including a wider temperature operating range (approximately 10° Celsius higher operating temperature) and higher energy density (approximately 25% minimum greater). As the most important component of vanadium redox flow battery, in principle a better vanadium electrolyte can be expected to improve overall vanadium redox flow battery performance.

The successful phase two trial was the final test for the licensed vanadium electrolyte prior to commercial applications. Golden Share is pleased with the performance of its letter of intent with HVVNET and grateful for HVVNET’s dedicated and professional team.

The business discussions between the Company and HVVNET for the joint development of a modular containerized vanadium redox flow battery, a custom-built system exclusive for Harmony Energy Technologies Corporation (“Harmony”) based on the licensed vanadium electrolyte, will continue between HVVNET and Harmony. A potential business agreement is to be expected later after the planned spinoff of Golden Share’s energy storage business under the previously-announced plan of arrangement.

Golden Share also announces that the performance of its Strategic Agreement with Joysun New Energy Co., Ltd. (“Joysun”) for a rechargeable home lithium-ion battery has proceeded as planned. Harmony may pursue future product development with Joysun after the planned spinoff.

Harmony is the wholly-owned American subsidiary of Golden Share. Golden Share will transfer its energy storage business to Harmony under a plan of arrangement. With the development of both its vanadium redox flow battery and lithium-ion battery, Harmony intends to pursue a wide range of products line with different battery technologies for different applications.
