Brandy Hill Project
The project lies approximately 60km southeast of Yalgoo in the Murchison Region of WA, covering approximately 100 km2. The area is well serviced with infrastructure and currently services Silver Lake Resource’s Deflector gold‐copper mine located 18km to the north.
Recharge’s primary focus is the development of the Brandy Hill South Prospect, aiming to delineate economically significant copper and gold resources.
- 12m @ 1.10% Cu and 14.9 g/t Ag, 0.22 g/t Au ; including intersection of a zone of strong Au-Cu-Ag-Pt-Pd mineralisation including 1m @ 2.15g/t Au, 112g/t Ag and 2.10% Cu,
- 16m @ 0.48% Cu, including 3m @ 1.47% Cu, 8.7 g/t Ag and 445 ppm W.
- Anomalous platinum and palladium were intercepted in BHRC005 with peak values of 138ppb Pt and 85ppb Pd
- 75m @ 0.55% Cu, finishing in mineralization, including 23m @ 1.29% Cu and 3.4 g/t Ag and 300 ppm W, within a highly altered dolerite with quartz veining and abundant sulphides of massive pyrite and microcrystalline chalcopyrite stringers
The main geological structure within the project is the Salt Creek Shear that runs north-south and deforms the belt on a regional scale. Cross cutting north east and northwest faults are secondary to this, with riedel structures occurring between parallel faults
The available information suggests that the quartz-sulphide, vein-hosted copper-gold mineralisation in the general project area (including Deflector) may be classified as of the hydrothermal, epigenetic type.
The Project has experienced limited drilling to date, with the highly anomalous tungsten (W) and several other pathfinder elements for shear hosted gold (Molybdenum (Mo), Bismuth (Bi) and Tellurium (Te) indicating a strong potential to discover Deflector-style quartz vein hosted copper-gold ± PGE dominant mineralisation.
The Brandy Hill Project offers clear potential to define a shear hosted copper (±gold) deposit, over a considerable strike length with further drilling targeting the Salt Creek shear and associated fault splays.
