The 16-hole reverse circulation (RC) program will test potential extensions to known high-grade gold mineralisation.
These extension targets were identified by recent 3D modelling.
The objective of the upcoming drill program is to collect enough data to estimate a JORC-compliant resource at Tumblegum South later this year.
With the AUD gold price trading at all-time highs, it is an opportunistic period to fast-track exploration at prospects such as Tumblegum South with known gold mineralisation.
Drilling funded by recent share placement
Bryah’s managing director Neil Marston said: “We are delighted to have started drilling within hours of finalising our $2 million placement last Friday.
“This drilling forms a key part of our short-term strategy, which is to define gold mineral resources at Tumblegum South where such resources could potentially be treated through nearby gold processing facilities.”
“We had some very encouraging results in our 2017 programme, so we look forward to completing this programme over the next fortnight and reporting the results in the weeks following.”
Bryah could process gold ore through nearby existing facilities
Bryah’s strategy is to define gold resources at the Gabanintha Project where such resources could potentially be processed through nearby existing and future processing facilities.
Active and historical mines located close to the Gabanintha tenements include the Gabanintha, Burnakura, Nannine and Bluebird gold mines.
