Recharge Resources Ltd. announce that it has retained Prospectair Geosurveys Inc. (“Prospectair”) to complete a high-resolution heliborne magnetic survey at its 100% owned Georgia Lake North and West Lithium Properties, which are immediately contiguous to Rock Tech Lithium Inc’s (RCK–V) (“Rock Tech”) Georgia Lake Lithium Property.
CEO, David Greenway, stated, “While we await completion of our production diameter well at Pocitos 1 in Argentina, we are progressing on multiple fronts including studies for the upcoming drilling at Brussels Creek, the spin out of Pinchi Lake to NextCharge Resources Corp. and now, an airborne magnetic survey at Georgia Lake.
“The point of this airborne survey being to identify the potential for structural continuity from neighbouring Rock Tech’s active development at its Georgia Lake Project. Rock Tech signed a major lithium supply agreement with Mercedes-Benz AG and Recharge is committed to advancing and monetizing its portfolio of assets to the benefit of all stakeholders.”
On October 20th, 2022, Mercedes-Benz (MBGn.DE) signed a supply agreement with Canadian-German Rock Tech to receive on average 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.
Lithium is selling in the spot market at 564,500 Yuan per tonne or the equivalent of US$77,294 per tonne according to Trading Economics. (October 31st, 2022).
Greenway added: “Prospectair will begin mobilization for the survey block as soon as possible, likely sometime towards the middle of this month. Prospectair estimates it should be possible to average 250 line-km of survey per day, and that about three days will be needed to complete the line-km to cover the survey area.”
The 548 line-km airborne survey includes covering neighbouring known lithium-bearing pegmatite structures, mobilization and demobilization, room and board, supply and delivery of fuel, data gathering and processing, All final results will be presented to section 4.4 with a final report signed by QP and 43-101 compliant.

Georgia Lake North & West – Lithium Properties – Ontario
The Georgia Lake North and West Properties are located approximately 160 km northeast of Thunder Bay, Ontario, within the Thunder Bay Mining Division. Recharge’s property is contiguous to the North and West boundaries of Rock Tech Lithium’s Georgia Lake Lithium Property and consists of two claim blocks totaling 320 hectares and 432 hectares.
The Rock Tech Lithium Georgia Lake Project is host to several spodumene-bearing pegmatites. Lithium mineralization was discovered in 1955 and subsequently explored by several historic owners. Rock Tech’s property hosts an NI 43-101 Mineral Resource, as reported in Rock Tech’s Preliminary Economic Assessment filed on Rock Tech’s SEDAR profile, with an effective date of March 15, 2021. The Mineral Resource is summarized in the following table:
Recharge’s management cautions that past results or discoveries on properties in proximity to Recharge may not necessarily be indicative of the presence of mineralization on the Company’s properties.
