The Charger Metals NL (ASX: CHR) share price is gaining again today, despite no news having been released by the company.

Right now, shares in Charger are 9.72% higher than their previous close, bringing its share price to 79 cents.

Today’s gains included, the Charger share price has gained a massive 80% over the course of this week. It is also 252% higher than it was when it completed its initial public offering (IPO) on the ASX on 9 July.

Let’s take a look at what’s been driving shares in the lithium and critical metals-focused minerals company higher.

Why is Charger’s stock gaining?

The Charger Metals share price has been performing exceptionally well since it released news of its 70% owned Bynoe Lithium Project on Wednesday.

The company announced it has begun fieldwork at the Northern Territory project, which it says is prospective for spodumene.

The Bynoe Lithium Project is also partly owned by Lithium Australia NL (ASX: LIT) and is surrounded by Core Lithium Ltd’s (ASX: CXO) Finnis Lithium Project.

The fieldwork that is now underway will include mapping, geochemistry, and aero-magnetics.

Charger says the project houses 14 identified pegmatite anomalies along a 5-kilometre-long zone.

Additionally, the project’s pegmatites have previously produced cassiterite. They are also prospective for tantalite.

After the fieldwork is finished, the Charger share price might be boosted by more news of the project. The company expects the fieldwork’s findings to refine the project’s lithium targets so Charger can begin a drilling campaign.

Charger Metals’ exploration portfolio also partly owns projects prospective for copper, nickel, platinum group elements, and gold.
