New high-grade zone identified
High-grade assays were received recently in the final set of results from recent reverse circulation (RC) drilling at the historic Horseshoe South Manganese Mine, which is part of the Bryah Basin Manganese Joint Venture.
The JV between Bryah (80%) and OM (Manganese) Ltd (20%), a subsidiary of OM Holdings Limited (ASX:OMH), covers the project which is about 150 kilometres north of Meekatharra in central Western Australia.
The drilling intersected high-grade manganese beneath and adjacent to workings in the main pit.
Best results from all holes completed in May 2020 include:
- 3 metres from 3 at 34.5% manganese, including 2 metres at 36.1% from 4 metres;
- 4 metres from 9-13 metres at 40.9%, including 2 metres at 46.0% from 10 metres; and
- 3 metres from 5 metres at 30.9%, including 1-metre at 42.9% from 6 metres.
Bryah managing director Neil Marston said at the time: “This is a significant achievement as we have now proven that high-grade manganese exists in previously untested areas outside of the historical workings at Horseshoe South.”
