The company has two copper-gold exploration projects in Western Australia

Bryah Resources Ltd (ASX:BYH) has had success in its first drilling campaign with high grade gold mineralisation returned from the Gabanintha project in central Western Australia.

The best intersection from the Tumblegum South Gold-Copper Prospect was 3 metres at 23.8 g/t gold and 0.32% copper from 45 metres.

Drilling was conducted in a highly prospective area directly along strike from the former Gabanintha gold mine which was mined for five years until 1992.

There were 26 reverse circulation holes for 2,484 metres completed in the program.

Other results include 6 metres at 2.95 g/t gold and 0.35% copper from 84 metres, 9 metres at 2.34 g/t gold from 12 metres, and 6 metres at 2.33 g/t gold and 0.13% copper from 72 metres.

Selected 1 metre samples will be submitted for laboratory analysis to better define mineralisation and grade.

Gold was first discovered at Gabanintha in 1897 and since then there has been mining activities for gold and copper intermittently.

The most recent closure of open pit gold operations was by Dominion Mining in 1992.

Bryah’s drilling focused on this area while further to the southwest drilling has intersected what are interpreted to be multiple zones of gold mineralisation.

Strong news flow

A geological interpretation using the latest 3D modelling software, geophysical information and these drilling results is underway.

Early indications are that mineralised zones intersected are generally open along strike and/or down dip.

Electromagnetic survey

In ongoing exploration at Gabanintha, Bryah has engaged Vortex Geophysics to undertake a down hole electromagnetic survey of one cased hole drilled to a depth of 180 metres.

The company expects the survey to be completed by the end of this month.

Development plans

Bryah hopes to develop a mine in the short term at Gabanintha, as the project is within easy trucking distance of existing processing plants and just 40 kilometres from the key mining town of Meekatharra.

In October 2017 Bryah raised $5 million and was admitted to the official list on the Australian Securities Exchange.

Apart from the 202 square kilometre Gabanintha project, the company also has the 718 square kilometre Bryah Basin project to the north, where exploration is also being carried out.

A heli-borne Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic geophysical survey across a large portion of the project should begin late next week, subject to favourable weather conditions.

The survey is being undertaken by UTS Geophysics Pty Ltd.

Investors in Bryah include Australian Vanadium Ltd (ASX:AVL) and John Hutton, a former director of Sandfire Resources Ltd (ASX:SFR).
