Recharge Metals Limited (ASX: REC) has announced that on ground exploration is set to commence at its wholly-owned Wapistan Lithium Project, located in the northwestern portion of the prolific James Bay Region of Québec, Canada.
On ground exploration will focus on targets one to three at Wapistan East and will be carried out by the company’s technical consultants, Dahrouge Geological Consulting.
Managing director, Felicity Repacholi, commented, “We are very excited to be finally getting on the ground at the highly prospective Wapistan Lithium Project. It has taken longer than expected to arrive at this point due to the recent wildfires, and we would like to share our appreciation to the emergency service crews who battled wildfires to protect the communities in which we work.”
Targets at Wapistan have been derived from integration of a number of datasets:
· High resolution aerial and satellite imagery acquired and interpreted by Dahrouge Geological
· Historical outcrop mapping completed by Main Exploration Co in 1959
· High resolution drone magnetic survey completed by Northern Superior Resources in 2022
As previously noted, the Wapistan Lithium Project is proximal to the Mia Lithium Project and the Radis Lithium Project. Recent exploration has confirmed the presence of spodumene-hosted lithium occurrences at both of these projects.
The company has said that exploration will commence at Wapistan East due to easy access, with multiple crews completing traverses across targets identified in areas one to three. Due to the excellent access and infrastructure at the project, field crews will be able to traverse the targets from the highway and access roads rather than requiring helicopter support. Multiple shorter traverses will be able to be completed during the day, allowing for more time for in depth exploration.
