Recharge Metals gears up for generative exploration program at Express Lithium Project, Canada

Recharge Metals (ASX:REC) has begun an extensive generative exploration program at its Express Lithium Project in the James Bay region of Quebec, Canada. 

The program is designed to outline outcropping pegmatites and potential pegmatite-bearing structures to be targeted in the company’s upcoming maiden field season.

Additionally, Recharge states the program includes the review of all historical data, the commissioning of multispectral analysis, an analysis of publicly available geophysical data, and the probable acquisition of LiDAR and ‘high-resolution’ aerial imagery to define target areas ahead of the campaign. 

The company says the summer field season will encompass detailed geological mapping and rock chip sampling, with Dahrouge Geological Consulting engaged to conduct the field program and ongoing geological services for the project.

Commenting on the start of the program, Recharge Metals Managing Director Felicity Repacholi-Muir says: “It is an exciting time for Recharge as we commence our generative exploration program at the Express Lithium Project, located in James Bay, an emerging world-class lithium province. 

Our team are focused on identifying prospective target areas for pegmatite-hosted lithium mineralisation ahead of getting boots on ground in the Canadian summer, followed by an anticipated drilling campaign later in the year.”

The Express Lithium Project covers an area of 73.5km-square and is host to several known pegmatite outcrops. The project is located about 12km southeast of Allkem’s (ASX:AKE) James Bay deposit. 

Recharge Metals is an ASX-listed exploration company focused on the exploration of its wholly owned Express Lithium Project in the James Bay lithium district in Canada and the progression of the copper-focused Brandy Hill South Project in Western Australia.
