Recharge Resources Ltd. is pleased to report the Company has engaged Mr. Johan Thom Shearer to work on behalf of the Company in consultation with first nation groups to advance the Company’s proposed diamond drill program for its 100% owned Brussels creek Copper-Gold-Palladium property, located in the Kamloops Mining District, British Columbia.
Johan Thom Shearer is President of Homegold Resources Ltd. Mr. Shearer is also on the Board of The Geological Society of London, Project Manager at Rolling Rock Resources Corp. and Geologist at Fertoz Ltd. He previously held the position of Director & Head-Investor Relations at Electra Stone Ltd., President, Chief Executive Officer & Director at Jazz Resources, Inc. and President, Chief Executive Officer & Director at Signature Resources Ltd.
Mr. Shearer received an undergraduate degree from the University of British Columbia and a graduate degree from the University of London.
The fully funded Phase 1 Drill Program was designed based on the results of the previously announced Induced Polarization (IP) survey to establish the potential for copper-gold mineralization similar to mineralization present at the adjacent New Afton mine owned by New Gold Inc. (NGD – TSX). The interpretation of Recharge’s previous exploration led to the selection of five high-priority drill targets, with each hole approximately 300 m in depth, for a total proposed program of 1500 metres. The targets for these proposed locations are highly conductive zones which are interpreted to continue from surface outcrops below near-surface more resistive zones.
Recharge Resources CEO and director, David Greenway, states, “With Recharge’s recently closed flow through private placement, the company is fully funded for its designed Phase 1 drill program. Recharge was greatly encouraged by the results of the Quantec IP survey and excited to drill test these new high-priority targets at Brussels. We look forward to the results of the ongoing consultations.”
About the Brussels Creek Project
The Property is an early-stage exploration property, located approximately 24 kilometres west of Kamloops, B.C., and is immediately adjacent to New Gold’s New Afton mine. The Property comprises 17 claims (66 cells) covering 1,350.43 hectares. The geological setting of the property is very similar to New Afton, a silica-saturated copper-gold alkalic porphyry-style deposit, as well as the Highland Valley, Mount Polly, Kemess and Galore Creek deposits. Recent field observations noted the presence of a substantial mineralized quartz-feldspar porphyry body intruding the overlying Nicola group volcanics. Historic sampling and mapping on the property, in 1983 and 1984, located a broad anomalous zone (200 metres by 400 metres) with gold values up to 3.5 grams per tonne. Grab samples taken from the property in 2019 include values of 10.1 g/t Au (with 0.7 g/t palladium) and 11.5 g/t Au.
