Recharge Resources Ltd. has applied for and is awaiting approval of diamond drilling permits on its 100% owned Brussels Creek Copper-Gold-Palladium property, which is located in the Kamloops Mining District, British Columbia.
Based on the findings of the previously disclosed Induced Polarization (IP) study, the fully financed Phase 1 Drill Program was established to determine the possibility of copper-gold mineralization comparable to that reported at the nearby New Afton mine, owned by New Gold Inc.
Five high-priority drill targets were chosen based on interpretation, with a projected program of 1500 m overall and each hole being about 300 m deep. The highly conductive zones that are the objectives for these suggested locations are believed to continue from surface outcrops below more resistive closer-to-surface zones.
With Recharge’s recently closed flow through private placement the company is fully funded for its designed Phase 1 drill program. Recharge was greatly encouraged by the results of the Quantec IP survey and excited to drill test these new high-priority targets at Brussels.

About the Brussels Creek Project
The project is an early-stage exploration property next to New Gold’s New Afton mine, about 24 km west of Kamloops, British Columbia. 17 claims (66 cells) totaling 1,350.43 hectares make up the Property.
The Highland Valley, Mount Polly, Kemess, and Galore Creek deposits, as well as New Afton, a silica-saturated copper-gold alkalic porphyry-style deposit, share a similar geological environment with the site. Recent field observations discovered a sizable mineralized quartz-feldspar porphyry body invading the volcanics of the Nicola group underneath.
On the property, prior sampling and mapping in 1983 and 1984 discovered a large anomalous zone (200 × 400 m) with gold values up to 3.5 gm per ton. Grab samples from the property in 2019 yielded values of 11.5 g/t Au and 10.1 g/t Au (plus 0.7 g/t palladium).
