Recharge Resources Announces the Expansion of Pinchi Lake Nickel Project

Recharge Resources, a Canadian mineral exploration company takes pleasure in announcing the extension of the Pinchi Lake Nickel Project. It is situated roughly 15 to 30 km northwest of Fort St. James and 120 km northwest of Prince George in the Omineca Mining District of central British Columbia.

Extension of the Pinchi Lake Nickel Project area has been done to include historical work at the suggestion of the Company’s geological team, after a review of historic workings in the adjacent region.

The claims of Pinchi Lake Nickel have been extended by 568 hectares (1,404 acres) to a total size of 3,922.64 hectares (9,693.05 acres) to include regions of anomalous nickel sampling results in three separate areas. This is indicated from early sampling as explained in the assessment reports available on the BC Government Aris website. The plan of the Company is to carry out exploration work on these new areas during its upcoming 2021 work programs scheduled for this fall.

We have significantly expanded our geological footprint at Pinchi Lake to cover multiple historical nickel occurrences that will be further explored throughout our Phase 2 work program at the recommendation of our geological team.

Yari Nieken, President and CEO, Recharge Resources

Nieken added, “The Company looks forward to the results from our Phase 1 exploration program that took place recently over the summer. We will continue to develop our portfolio of battery metals projects in highly prospective and mining friendly regions of North America focusing on Nickel and Lithium.”

About Murray Ridge (Pinchi Lake)

The projects of Murray Ridge and Pinchi Lake nickel are situated nearly 15 to 30 km northwest of Fort St. James and 120 km northwest of Prince George in central British Columbia. Earlier, the project was examined by Nanton Nickel Corp.

The project is accomplished by means of three individual claim blocks summing 3,922.64 hectares that were carefully chosen to cover the best sampling results (exceeding 0.20% nickel in rocks) reported by Nanton Nickel Company in 2013 briefly following the breakthrough of the Decar nickel property owned FPX Nickel Corp. Awerite was verified to be a constituent of the nickel values.

The Decar nickel project geology is situated 60 km southwest is an analogous suite of ultramafic intrusions that are hosts to extensively disseminated coarse-grained awaruite mineralization. Compositionally, awaruite (Ni2Fe-Ni3Fe) includes roughly 75% nickel, 25% iron and 0% sulfur, and therefore, it is considered natural steel.

Due to the absence of sulfur, the concentrate can be shipped directly to the steel mills without incurring smelting and refining charges, and there will be lesser environmental issues.
