Bryah Resources (ASX:BYH) has provided an update on its manganese exploration within its Bryah Basin Project in central Western Australia. Following a site visit in March 2018 by company personnel, laboratory assays from ten rock chip samples collected from two locations at Black Hill and Mudderwearie have been received.
As quoted in the press release:
The best assay result was 52.12 percent recorded from Black Hill, a manganese capped mesa where a previous sample recorded 49.5 percent. At the historical Mudderwearie Manganese mine 2 samples assaying 50.88 percent and 47.68 percent were collected from the mine’s shallow open pit. The results of the assays confirm the presence of high grade manganese in-situ at both locations. The company intends to drill test these locations following receipt of the necessary site clearances.
The company’s strategy now includes exploration for shallow high-grade manganese resources which may be exploited to provide an early cash flow.
Bryah Resources is a copper-gold-manganese focused explorer with two projects located in central Western Australia, being the 718 km2 Bryah Basin Project and the 202km2 Gabanintha Project. The Bryah Basin is host to the high-grade copper-gold mines at DeGrussa, and at Horseshoe Lights, which was mined up until 1994. The Bryah Basin also has several historical and current manganese mines.
