Drilling is underway in the prolific Bryah Basin of Western Australia

Bryah Resources Ltd (ASX:BYH) has the reverse circulation (RC) drill spinning in the Bryah Basin of WA targeting the high-priority Windalah gold prospect and an electromagnetic (EM) conductor near the historic Peak Hill Gold Mine.

With the company aiming to take further advantage of strong gold market fundamentals, it has initially planned 2,000 metres of RC drilling in this campaign.

Seven holes at Windalah

At least seven holes will be drilled at Windalah where high-grade gold was recently intersected 12 metres at 4.32 g/t gold from surface, including 2 metres at 17.19 g/t from 3 metres.

An initial two holes are planned to be drilled and cased to a depth of around 300 metres at the EM conductor 7 kilometres north of the Peak Hill mine.

“Excellent” targets

Managing director Neil Marston said: “This drilling program is the first of several drill campaigns we plan to undertake over the remainder of 2020 to test some of our excellent gold and copper targets.

“The recent gold results reported from our drilling at Windalah will be followed up with at least seven RC holes in this program.

“We also plan to drill at least two deep holes at the high order EM target north of the historic Peak Hill gold mine.”

Apart from the 12-metre intersection at Windalah, drilling in 2018 and recently also returned:

  • 5 metres at 6.62 g/t from 79 metres, including 1-metre at 15.15 g/t from 82 metres; and
  • 3 metres at 6.69 g/t from 145 metres, including 1-metre at 10.52 g/t from 146 metres.

Large EM conductor

The other target, the large EM conductor, was identified in 2018 by an airborne Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM™ Max) survey and confirmed by a Moving Loop Electromagnetic (MLEM) ground survey.

It is around 65 kilometres west of Sandfire Resources Ltd’s (ASX:SFR) DeGrussa Copper-Gold Mine.

The company intends to undertake downhole EM surveys of the drill holes to assist in follow-up exploration.

Marston added: "The program is expected to last about two weeks with the next drilling program, to test various manganese targets, planned to start in late July.”
