Drilling has outlined a potential new manganese deposit at the Redrum prospect within Bryah’s 49% owned Bryah Basin project in Western Australia.

Top results from the drilling at Redrum are 10m grading 20.3% manganese from a down-hole depth of 20m including 4m at 25.2% manganese from 26m (RRRC037) and 31m at 18.2% manganese from 11m including 6m at 22% manganese from 11m (RRRC036).

Additional results include 18m at 23.3% manganese from 11m including 6m at 26.9% manganese from 26m (BRRC187) and 12m at 23.4% manganese from 13m (BRRC189)

Byrah Resources (ASX:BYH) chief executive officer Ashley Jones said the results at Redrum validates the company’s strategy of increasing resource tonnage to a critical mass which would allow the production centre to resume mining.

“Redrum is returning wide intersections of manganese with 31m at 18% manganese being the thickest intersection from 8m below surface,” he added

“The prospect is open in all directions with excellent potential to increase the size of the known mineralisation.

“The Brumby West drilling results have indicated that manganese mineralisation is more extensive than previously thought. Two new drill lines remain open to the west and mineralisation is still open to the southwest.”

Drill program

The results were returned for a 64-hole drill program totalling 2,458m which was carried out in March to follow-up on an existing Gradient Array Induced Polarisation (GAIP) survey from 2021 along the Brumby Creek trend in the western portion of the Manganese Joint Venture tenement group.

At Redrum, drilling extended existing manganese intercepts from September 2021 drilling to the northwest and southeast.

The latest results highlight the prospectivity of the area in the north section of the prospect, with all holes drilled to date returning manganese intercepts of more than 2m thickness and greater than 15% manganese.

Meanwhile, infill and extensional drilling at Brumby West indicates that mineralisation is open to the west and southwest.
