Wapistan Lithium Project
The Wapistan Lithium Project comprises 219, 100%-owned mineral claims, covering approximately 107.22km2 over two contiguous claim blocks, in the heart of the prolific James Bay Region in Québec, Canada. The Wapistan Lithium Project is located just 120km north of Recharge’s flagship Express Lithium Project, providing the opportunity to work on the two projects simultaneously.
Wapistan lies within the Archaean Superior Province of the Canadian Shield, which hosts some of the most significant lithium resources in the world. The majority of the spodumene-bearing LCT-style pegmatites in the James Bay region are hosted within greenstone belt rock types. The Wapistan East Property is underlain by approximately 20 kilometres of Yasinski Group greenstones, while the Wapistan West property is underlain by approximately 11 kilometres of Yasinski Group greenstones. These comprise mafic volcanic rocks interlayered with intermediate to felsic volcanic and pyroclastic rocks, as well as volcano-sedimentary and metasedimentary rocks.
The Project is proximal to recent exploration successes at the Mia Lithium Project (owned by Q2 Metals; TSX-V: QTWO) and the Radis Lithium Project (owned by Ophir Gold Corp; TSX-V: OPHR), both of which are also hosted by Yasinski greenstones.
Recharge has undertaken a thorough internal geological review of all available geological data from the Wapistan Lithium Project. A small number of pegmatites intrusions are mentioned in the provincial SIGEOM database on or close to the Project, however no lithium focused exploration has occurred on the Wapistan Lithium Project. Initial exploration will utilise LIDAR and orthophotos to delineate target areas for field appraisal, as in progress at our Express Lithium Project.
