Vancouver, BC – April 11th, 2022 – Recharge Resources Ltd. (“Recharge” or the “Company”) (RR: CSE) (SLLTF: OTC) (SL5: Frankfurt) is pleased to announce the Company has received multiple proposals from Argentinian drilling companies, to conduct the upcoming drill program on its recently announced “Pocitos 1” Lithium Brine project in Salta, Argentina. (See option agreement news dated March 23rd, 2022)
Recharge’s in-country advisors and geological team are now evaluating these proposals for its 2022 drill program that will use existing TEM geophysics data and surface sampling to identify and drill two additional ~400m holes for a total 4 completed holes that includes the 2018 campaign at its Pocitos 1 project in Salta, Argentina. The drill site locations will be selected in order to maximize the project’s potential to intersect lithium bearing aquifers and model an NI 43-101 resource estimate at the Pocitos 1 exploration prospect that covers 800 Has and is located 10km from Pocitos village.

CEO and director, Yari Nieken, states, “Our in-country technical team has extensive experience operating in Argentina and was able to quickly secure multiple tender responses for our upcoming drill program at the Pocitos 1 cateo on the Pocitos salar. As you can see from the video link above, and available on Youtube, the impressive flow rates are upwards of 75,000 litres per min of lithium bearing brine. With two existing dill holes in place, this new drilling will assist in establishing an NI 43-101 resource. We have benefitted greatly from an embedded geological team which has empowered us to truly hit the ground running.”
About Pocitos 1 Lithium Brine Project
The Pocitos Project is located approximately 10km from the township of Pocitos where there is gas, electricity, and telephone internet services. Pocitos I exploration licence is approximately 800 hectares and is accessible by road. Previous exploration and development teams have spent over USD $1.5 million exploring the project, including surface sampling, trenching, TEM geophysics and drilling two 400m holes that had outstanding results. Locations for immediate follow up drilling have already been determined and preparations are being made for upcoming drill program.
Lithium values of up to 125ppm from Laboratory analysis conducted by Alex Stewart were recorded by A.I.S. Resources Ltd during the projects first drill campaign in May 2018 using a double packer in HQ Diamond drill holes to a depth of 409 metres and the flow rate of the hole exceeded 75,000 Litres per minute and brine continued to flow for more than 5 hours. Both drill holes had exceptional brine flow rates. Recharge’s plan is to sample the current drill holes and drill a further two holes to work towards a NI 43-101 resource calculation.
