Vancouver, BC, Canada – March 17th, 2022 – Recharge Resources Ltd. (RR : CSE) (SLLTF : OTC) (SL5 : Frankfurt) (“Recharge” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the expansion of its portfolio of highly prospective mineral claims in its 100% owned Pinchi Lake Nickel project area. The new project covers newly discovered, highly anomalous nickel mineralization along strike to the northwest and southeast of its Pinchi Lake Nickel East claim block, following the 2021 exploration program that confirmed the presence of highly anomalous nickel mineralization, along strike to the northwest.
The new Pinchi Lake Nickel Project is totalling 3,170.47 hectares (7,934.4 acres). This additional project was acquired to cover important geological and magnetic response anomalies along strike both northwest and southeast of the existing Pinchi Lake Nickel East Project. The addition of this new project significantly strengthens the potential for discovery of a nickel alloy orebody. (See Figure 1. Below)
President & CEO of Recharge Resources, Yari Nieken commented: “We have significantly expanded our geological footprint in Pinchi Lake area to cover newly identified, highly anomalous Nickel mineralization along strike from our 2021 exploration program. Planning is now underway for a larger 2022 program to expand our Nickel discoveries and test the new project areas. With current Nickel prices surging, Recharge Resources is well positioned to capitalize on this vital metal for the global shift to electric vehicles. We will continue to explore and develop our portfolio of battery metals projects in highly prospective and mining friendly regions focusing on Nickel, Lithium and Copper .”
About Murray Ridge (Pinchi Lake)
The Murray Ridge and Pinchi Lake nickel projects are located approximately 15 to 30 kilometres northwest of Fort St. James and 120 km northwest of Prince George in central British Columbia. The project was previously explored by Nanton Nickel Corp. The projects consists of Five separate claim blocks totalling 7,093.11 hectares (17,527.46 acres) that were carefully selected to cover the best sampling results (greater than 0.20 per cent nickel in rocks) reported by Nanton Nickel Company in 2013 shortly after the discovery of the Decar nickel property owned FPX Nickel Corp. Awerite was confirmed to be a constituent of the nickel values.
The Decar nickel project geology which lies 60 km southwest is analogous suite of ultramafic intrusions are hosts to widely disseminated coarse grained awaruite mineralization. Compositionally, awaruite (Ni2Fe-Ni3Fe) comprises approximately 75 per cent nickel, 25 per cent iron and 0 per cent sulphur, and therefore it is considered natural steel. Absence of sulphur allows a concentrate to be shipped directly to steel mills without incurring smelting and refining costs, and minimal environmental problems. For further details on the project refer to the company’s website or to the company’s press release dated August 3rd, 2021.
