Recharge Metals has started its 2024 exploration season at the Wapistan Lithium Project in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay region of Québec, Canada. 

Fieldwork, managed by Dahrouge Geological Consulting, has resumed across 8km of previously untested prospective greenstones at the Wapistan West claim block. 

Recharge, which has a market capitalisation of $5 million, says this area will be systematically traversed and sampled by Dahrouge. 

The traverses are anticipated to be completed by the end of this month, with assay results expected six to eight weeks later. 

Managing Director Felicity Repacholi says the company is resuming groundwork on what it believes to be the most prospective ground at Wapistan. 

“We are pleased to be working again with Dahrouge Geological, who are already in the region and therefore able to quickly and efficiently complete this work program,” she says. 

“The Eeyou Istchee James Bay region, within which Wapistan is located, remains a hotspot for exploration and development stage lithium projects. 

“Results from the previous season at Wapistan were encouraging, and we look forward to updating investors on the results of this work program.”

Results from the sampling conducted in 2023 demonstrated the prospectivity of the area, with samples displaying geochemical signatures associated with lithium-caesium-tantalum (LCT) pegmatites, alongside showing evidence of fractionation. 

The Wapistan Project is located near Q2 Metals’ (TSX-V:QTWO) Mia Lithium Project. 

Recharge Metals is a Canadian explorer with assets considered prospective for uranium and lithium in the Athabasca Basin and James Bay regions. The company also has a copper-focused project in Western Australia.
