Recharge Metals (REC) has temporarily suspended diamond drilling activities at its Brandy Hill South copper-gold project in Western Australia’s Murchison province due to rain.

The company said recent rains had caused surface wetness and minor pooling of water in some areas along the tracks at Mellenbye station, preventing access to the drilling area.

Conditions prevented Recharge from completing the second diamond drill hole BHRC018.

Following the company’s first reverse circulation (RC) drilling program at Brandy Hill South, three holes were selected to be extended with diamond tails to provide structural and lithological information.

The diamond drill core was expected to help understand the nature of the primary mineralization as well as the supergene mineralization in the oxide/transition zones of the weathered profile.

A total of 21 holes were drilled in the recent RC program to test the continuity of mineralization and verify previous results.

Recharge indicated that significant visible copper mineralization was identified in four of the holes.

“While several bouts of rain have caused inevitable delays, we are ready and ready to resume drilling once access road repairs are complete,” said general manager Brett Wallace.

REC shares fell 7.14% to 45.5 cents at 3:41 p.m. AEST.
