Bryah Resources Ltd (ASX:BYH) has received significant manganese results from the second phase of exploration drilling within the Bryah Basin in central Western Australia.

A total of 83 holes for 2,081 metres of reverse circulation (RC) drilling was completed at four sites; the Brumby Creek, Black Hill and Black Caviar Prospects and the historic Horseshoe South Manganese mine.

The drilling program was funded by OM (Manganese) Limited (OMM), a wholly-owned subsidiary of OM Holdings Ltd (ASX:OMH) under a $7.3 million agreement signed in April 2019.

Highlight drilling results from Brumby Creek Prospect (using an 18% manganese cut-off grade) include:

• 23 metres (0-23 metres) at 25.8% manganese, including 3 metres (2-5 metres) at 31.2% manganese, 2 metres (6-8 metres) at 30.4% manganese and 2 metres (10-12 metres) at 32.8% manganese;
• 7 metres (2-9 metres) at 26.5% manganese and 9 metres (15-24 metres) at 18.6% manganese;
• 14 metres (5-19 metres) at 22.8% manganese; and
• 8 metres (5-13 metres) at 21.4% manganese.

 

Bryah managing director Neil Marston said “These latest results from Brumby Creek are extremely encouraging, with significant extensions to manganese mineralisation identified in phase 1.

“We have extended the zones of manganese mineralisation, to the west of the prospect as well as identifying new manganese areas up to 1 kilometre along strike to the south.

“This drilling further demonstrates the potential to discover new manganese deposits from surface and under shallow cover over a wide project area.”
