25 drill holes for 2,400 metres planned

Bryah Resources Ltd (ASX:BYH) has commenced its maiden drilling program at the Tumblegum South gold/copper prospect, within the company’s Gabanintha Project in Western Australia.

Bryah listed on the ASX last month following its initial public offering (IPO) which raised $5 million.

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

The new copper-gold explorer has two projects totalling over 900 square kilometres near Meekatharra located in mid-west Western Australia - Bryah Basin Project and Gabanintha.

The company’s Bryah Basin Project covers 713.8 square kilometres over parts of the western Bryah Basin.

The Bryah Basin is home to two significant volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) copper-gold discoveries – the historic Horseshoe Lights mine (closed in 1994), and Sandfire’s DeGrussa mine (discovered in 2009).

Significant historical mining and exploration

In 2013 Australian Vanadium Ltd (ASX:AVL) drilled 12 reverse circulation drill holes into the northeastern sector of the Gabanintha project, which includes the Tumblegum South Prospect.

The drilling at Tumblegum South recorded outstanding results including 5 metres at 9.64 g/t gold from 58 metres + 5 metres at 8.72 g/t gold and 3.05% copper from 31 metres.

Interestingly, the Tumblegum South Prospect is immediately along strike from the Tumblegum pit which was mined as part of the Gabanintha gold mine between 1987 and 1992.

Targeting high-grade extensions to past drilling

Bryah’s new drilling aims to test several interpreted geological structures for extensions to gold-copper mineralisation identified at Tumblegum South from past drilling.

The current geological interpretation is that several potentially mineralised structures, orientated north-south, lie at the contact between basalt and ultramafic units.

These structures form the primary target zones for Bryah’s drilling program.

The company plans to complete a total of 25 reverse circulation drill holes for 2,400 metres.

As part of the drilling program, 4 deeper holes will be cased with PVC to allow a follow-up down-hole electromagnetic (DHEM) survey to be undertaken.

The drilling program is expected to be completed by the end of this month.
