Bryah waits on assays from Tumblegum South gold drilling
Special Report: Bryah is now waiting on assay results from its three-hole diamond drilling program at the Tumblegum South gold deposit in Western Australia.
The drilling was aimed at confirming high-grade mineralised zones and the geological model of the deposit within its Gabanintha project about 40km south of Meekatharra.
Bryah Resources (ASX:BYH) says the drilling is an important step towards improving the status of the inferred resource, which currently stands at 600,000t grading 2.2 grams per tonne for 42,500oz of contained gold.
Core from the drill program will be orientated and geologically logged on site before being transported to Perth for cutting, with samples being submitted to a laboratory for gold and multi-element analysis.
The company will also select portions of the remaining core for communition test work and density measurements.
Follow-up metallurgical test work will be determined once the core has been recovered back to Perth.
Earlier this month, Bryah secured a mining lease over the Tumblegum South deposit that could form the basis of a small, ~12 month open cut mining operation.
Bryah holds a suite of mineral rights over tenements covering 170sqkm held by Australian Vanadium (ASX:AVL).
The company holds the rights for all minerals excluding vanadium, titanium, cobalt, chromium, uranium, lithium, tantalum, iron ore and manganese.
