Recharge Resources’ Georgia Lake North & West lithium properties are contiguous and on trend with RockTech Lithium (RCK – CSE) Georgia Lake lithium property that is located approximately 160 km northeast of Thunder Bay within the Thunder Bay Mining Division and is host to a number of spodumene-bearing pegmatites.

Lithium mineralization was discovered in 1955 and subsequently explored by several historic owners. RockTech acquired the licenses in 2009 and carried out several drill campaigns until 2017. Based on a total of 351 drill holes with a combined length of 47,384 m an NI43-101 compliant resource estimate of 6.58 million tonnes in the measured and indicated category and 6.72 million tonnes in the inferred category was published in August 2018.
Majority of pegmatites are hosted by Archaean meta-sediments near large masses of granite:
- Lithium–cesium-tantalum (LCT) type pegmatites
- Spodumene is the main lithium mineral
- Spodumene and feldspar are mostly aligned normal to the pegmatite wall
- Potential for other rare metals: niobium, tantalum, rubidium, beryllium, and cesium
- Feldspar, quartz, and mica are the other major minerals
- Pegmatites have simple zonation: aplite or granitic border zone and a spodumene zone with minor alternating aplite and pegmatite layers
