Recharge Metals to power through Wapistan exploration

Recharge Metals (ASX:REC) is looking to test over 8km of prospective greenstone belt at its wholly owned Wapistan Lithium Project in Quebec, Canada as part of its 2024 field program.  

Recharge Metals, which has a $8.46 million market capitalisation says preparations for the 2024 field program at Wapistan are well advanced, with targeting work spearheaded by Dahrouge Geological now underway. 

Limited sampling results confirm Wapistan West contains ‘highly fractionated’ lithium-caesium-tantalum (LCT) pegmatites and potential to host lithium mineralisation. 

According to Recharge, targeting analysis will be completed using a recent light detection and ranging (LiDAR) survey to identify potential pegmatite outcrops not previously detected. 

Managing Director Felicity Repacholi says: “The limited field campaign at Wapistan was encouraging, outlining prospective areas to explore, particularly within Wapistan West. 

The team is currently interpreting the imagery from the LiDAR survey, focusing on the greenstone belt with field work planned to recommence in the Canadian summer.”

The Wapistan Lithium Project is proximal to the Mia Lithium Project — owned by Q2 Metals (TSXV:QTWO) — and Ophir Gold’s (TSXV:OPHR) Radis Lithium Project. 

Recharge Metals is a well-structured explorer focused on its Express and Wapistan projects in the ‘world-class’ James Bay lithium district in Canada, as well as progressing the copper-focused Brandy Hill South Project in Western Australia.
