Bryah has extended its exploration strategy to include manganese as well as existing copper-gold prospects.

Marston said in a recent interview with Proactive Investors: “The Bryah Basin is also world-renowned for historical manganese production.



“We’ve branched our exploration strategy out to address the manganese opportunity and we've been progressing that pretty well in the last few months.

“We announced a deal we've been working on for about a month or so now to acquire the historical Horseshoe South Manganese Mine.

“That, combined with the extra 150-odd square kilometres of ground adjoining that, pretty much gives us the whole of the prospective horizon for manganese deposits in the area for us to evaluate.”
