New manganese hits sees Bryah Resources increase resource base at flagship project

The discovery of a mineralised channel system at Redrum with a 15m intersection at 24.8% manganese will help to achieve the aim of increasing the resource base of the area.
These latest drill results are part of the program drilled in March 2022, designed to find new areas, and enlarge mineralised areas at the Bryah Basin Manganese Project – a joint venture between Bryah Resources (ASX:BYH) owning 49% and OM Manganese (OMM) owning 51%.
While further results are pending for an additional four drill holes adjacent to the Redrum intersections, the best drill results returned 15m at 24.8% manganese from 4m, including 4m at 28.9% manganese from 5m.
Other hits included 5m at 23% manganese from 10m, including 2m at 28.2% manganese from 10m.
Reverse circulation drilling was carried out for 2,458m in which 64 holes were completed – 26 of these holes have now returned assay results.
BYH CEO Ashley Jones says the company has an aggressive program heading into the second half of the year with further GAIP surveys and drilling to achieve these aims.
“The GAIP used as a targeting tool highlights areas of continuous manganese of varying grades and refines the targets so drill testing can be more efficient in defining higher grades that we can develop into resources.
“Bryah’s overarching aim is to get to this area back into manganese production,” he says.
Additional drilling at Brumby West infilled the deposit extension identified in September 2021 drilling.
“Brumby West returned excellent results and drilling will convert inferred resources to the indicated category,” Jones added.
Results returned to date show continuity of the manganese at 40m infill line spacing with hits of up to 7m at 24.6% manganese from 18m, 4m at 30.2% manganese from 31m, and 5m at 25.1% manganese from 17m.
The Bryah Basin project area is around 100-150km north of the town of Meekatharra in Western Australia.
BYH’s tenements and manganese mineral rights cover some 1,135km2 over parts of the western Bryah Basin.
The manganese joint venture project will be further explored using additional GAIP surveys and more RC drilling during the remainder of 2022.
