Gold, copper and manganese explorer Bryah Resources (ASX: BYH) has uncovered gold grading up to 15.05 grams per tonne at the Windalah prospect within its flagship Bryah Basin project in Western Australia.
Notable intervals from Bryah’s latest drill samples were 5m at 6.62g/t gold, including 1m at 15.05g/t gold; 3m at 6.69g/t gold, including 1m at 10.52g/t gold.
“These latest results include some significant upgrades on the earlier composite assays at the Windalah prospect,” Bryah managing director Neil Marston said.
“We have intersected intervals exceeding 6g/t in two holes collared 100m apart, so the focus now will be to extend this high-grade mineralised horizon, which is open down dip and along strike,” Mr Marston added.
The latest five reverse circulation holes for 986m were drilled at Windalah where Afmeco Pty Ltd historically explored the area and reported gold mineralisation in several holes.
Afmeco had deemed Windalah similar to the Horseshoe Lights copper-gold mine, which is about 13km to the north.
Mr Marston said the latest results boost the company’s confidence to carry out further drilling in the area.
“With our growing geological understanding of the area, the Windalah prospect has, in our opinion, excellent potential,” he added.
Only last month, Bryah reported it had intersected 27m at 1.43g/t gold at Windalah, with the thick intersection containing two 3m higher-grade intervals grading 4.16g/t gold and 6.29g/t gold.
Another highlight intersection from Windalah was 21m at 1.21g/t gold, including 6m at 3.52g/t gold and 12m at 0.71g/t gold.
Follow up exploration activities will prioritise Windalah, with Bryah currently carrying out geological, geochemical, geophysical interpretation and 3D modelling, as well as down hole electromagnetic (EM) surveys of the cased holes at Windalah and the nearby Jupiter prospect.
Bryah is also advancing heritage surveys and program of works approvals.
The Bryah Basin project encompasses 720sq km in WA and is prospective for gold, copper and manganese.
In addition to firming up the gold and copper potential within the project, Bryah is investigating a possible low-cost, near-term manganese operation to generate early cash flow and underpin exploration and development of the project gold and copper prospects.
