Bryah following up on REE, uranium potential at West Bryah
Bryah has completed a desktop study which has identified the potential for its West Bryah tenements in Western Australia to host rare earth elements and uranium mineralisation.
The three licences, which were acquired in late 2021 and cover about 50km2, are located close to the historical Wilthorpe open cut gold mine and feature the Despair Granite, the Yarlarweelor Gneiss complex and the Labouchere Formation as the main lithological units.
And here’s where Bryah Resources’ (ASX:BYH) study comes in with mapped pegmatites historically reported at the Yarlarweelor complex and the Despair Granite.
Uranium intersections of up to 35m grading 503 parts per million U3O8 have also been reported less than 200m from the tenement boundary along with anomalous lanthanum values.
The company is now following up on the study with geologists on the ground carrying out mapping and collecting rock chip samples.
“The Yarlarweelor Gneiss complex and the Despair Granite is reported to be intruded by pegmatites from old exploration reports,” chief executive officer Ashley Jones says.
“The Western Australian Mineral Exploration Reports (WAMEX) and Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA) database quote pegmatites, significant uranium results and anomalous rare earth element (REE) results.”
Not bad for tenements which were originally acquired for their gold potential.
Besides the E52/3898 tenement boundary straddling the historical Wilthorpe pit, The Despair Granite is located on the eastern side of the Yarlarweelor Gneiss complex, which is currently being explored by ASX companies at Mt Clere REE prospect and the Red Peak Lithium project.
Multiple references to pegmatites are recorded in the geological logs from the Ann prospect drilling and will be followed up.
Ann also returned the best uranium results within the company’s landholding including 6m at 505ppm U3O8.
