Recharge Resources Ltd. has completed an initial reconnaissance prospecting program at its 100% owned Georgia Lake North Lithium Project in the Thunder Bay Mining Division, Ontario. The work was completed as a follow-up to the airborne magnetic survey completed in Q4 2022.
The reconnaissance program was conducted in late August and September. The program consisted of ground truthing and prospecting of several areas that were selected from reviewing the airborne magnetic data, as well as a till sampling program to further evaluate the Project for its lithium potential. The company is currently awaiting the results from the samples collected during the visit.
The 671.5 ha Project, comprised of the Georgia Lake West and Georgia Lake North Properties, is contiguous to Rock Tech Lithium Inc.’s (RCK–V) (“Rock Tech”) Georgia Lake Lithium Property and located approximately 160 km northeast of Thunder Bay, Ontario, within the Thunder Bay Mining Division.
On October 20th, 2022, Mercedes-Benz (MBGn.DE) signed a supply agreement with Canadian-German Rock Tech to receive an average of 10,000 tonnes of battery-grade lithium hydroxide per year. The deal, which comes shortly after the two groups said they would explore a strategic partnership, has a value over five years of 1.5 billion euros (US$1.47 billion) and will provide enough lithium hydroxide for 150,000 cars a year, the companies said.
CEO, David Greenway, stated, “We are making progress on all fronts across our portfolio of lithium projects including drilling and a resource estimate pending at the Pocitos 1 Lithium brine project in Argentina, and pending results from our first ground reconnaissance visit to the Georgia Lake lithium project,” Greenway concluded.
