Bryah’s manganese resource nears critical mass after monster RC drilling at Brumby Creek JV
Link copied to
Manganese remains an important part of Bryah’s diverse resource portfolio with the company just completing 2.5km of reverse circulation drilling at the Brumby Creek joint venture project.
The 64-hole program, which was carried out together with operating partner OM Manganese – a subsidiary of OM Holdings – was designed to follow-up on Gradient Array Induced Polarisation (GAIP) targets in the Brumby Creek area.
GAIP surveys define conductive zones in a bid to locate manganese mineralisation that is spatially extensive under cover, allowing for large areas of ground to be covered quickly for the next round of drilling to be prioritised
Bryah Resources (ASX:BYH) and OMM plan to start further GAIP surveys this month at the Horseshoe Mine prospect.
They also intend to lodge mining lease applications over the Brumby Creek and Black Hill mineral resources to support future feedstocks for mining at the Horseshoe South mine.
“The completed drilling followed up geophysical targets from the GAIP surveys completed in 2021,” chief executive officer Ashley Jones noted.
“With the maiden manganese resource released there is massive scope to grow the available resource to reach the critical mass to restart the mining operation.
“The GAIP and follow up drilling will quickly appraise areas along strike from known resources to define new prospects.”
Bryah recently committed to retaining its 49% ownership in the JV and will fund its share of drilling to ensure this.
