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.

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.”
Final drilling results from the remaining sites will be reported as they become available.
The company is also preparing a technical report and budget for OMM to consider ahead of OMM electing in August to commit to next the stage of on-ground exploration pursuant to the terms of the agreement.
