Reconnaissance sampling near Bryah Resources’ (ASX: BYH) Bryah Basin project in central Western Australia has discovered manganese mineralisation within the project’s Horseshoe formation, recording grades as high as 54% manganese.

The sampling program focused on the north-western extensions of Horseshoe, in an area of interest identified from satellite imagery near the Mount Labouchere prospect.

A zone of outcropping manganese was found and a total of seven rock chip samples were collected from the area, three of which recorded grades of 45.4%, 49.9% and 51.4% manganese.


The company is set to undertake an extensive shallow drilling program of several newly identified manganese targets.

Bryah Resources Ltd (ASX:BYH) has identified high-grade manganese from reconnaissance sampling at the Mount Labouchere prospect within its Bryah Basin Project in central Western Australia.

The Mount Labouchere prospect is located on flat open terrain with excellent access, being within 700 metres of the Ashburton Downs Road.

Notably, seven rock chip samples were collected with three samples recording high-grade manganese over 45%, with the highest value of 51.4% manganese.

In addition, a total of three rock chip samples were collected from an area 500 metres to the north of the recently identified Brumby Creek Prospect.


Manganese explorer Bryah Resources has received commitments from sophisticated and professional investors to raise $303,000.

The company will issue 3.78 million shares and 1.89 million options exercisable at 30c by October 2020.


Commenting on BASF’s move, Bryah Resources’ (ASX: BYH) managing director Neil Marston told Small Caps it was understandable due to high cobalt prices and the ethical and supply issues surrounding sourcing cobalt, which is critical ingredient in the NMC cathode mix.

“I would expect that BASF are not going to be the only battery manufacturer looking at this problem if they see manganese as a big part of the solution,” Mr Marston said.

“Using manganese will lower the price of batteries, which is vitally important as batteries make up a huge portion of the overall cost of an EV.”

He added that by bringing the EV cost down, it would put the vehicles within reach of everyday consumers.

And this could potentially accelerate the uptake of EVs on roads world-wide.

Mr Marston pointed out the global community will profit from EVs being in the hands of the masses through the “tangible environmental benefits” including a decrease in air pollution.


Bryah Resources Ltd (ASX:BYH) has increased its inferred base metals mineral resource at the Gabanintha Vanadium Project by 14.4%.

The mineral resource now totals 14.3 million tonnes containing 666 ppm nickel, 217 ppm copper and 0.16% sulphur and was revised following a program of 19 reverse circulation (RC) and three diamond drilling holes.

The company has also completed a placement to raise more than $300,000 for its Bryah Basin drilling program.



Bryah Resources Ltd (ASX:BYH) has a capital raising announcement pending and has been granted a trading halt by the ASX.

The halt will remain in place until the start of normal trading on Wednesday, November 28, 2018, or when the announcement is released to the market, whichever occurs earliest.

High-grade gold has been intersected by Bryah Resources in further drilling at the Windalah prospect, where it discovered the yellow metal in October.
The drilling, targeting an area with geological similarities to the nearby Horseshoe Lights copper-gold mine, hit gold in two of five RC holes: 5m at 6.62gpt from 79m, including 1m at 15.05gpt; and 2m at 3.39gpt from 78m plus 4m at 2.72gpt from 134m and 3m at 6.69gpt from 145m, including 1m at 10.52gpt. 
The high-grade gold mineralisation is open along strike and down dip, and follow-up drilling is planned. 
Sixteen RC holes for 1361m in other areas, testing shallow depths above the Mars 2, 3, 4 and Peak Hill 1 EM conductors failed to return significant results, although they did not drill deep enough to test the anomalies and were primarily aimed at collecting geological information.

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.


The high-grade gold mineralisation at Windalah is open along strike and down dip.

Bryah Resources Ltd (ASX:BYH) has received further drilling results from its gold discovery at the Windalah Prospect within the Bryah Basin Project in central Western Australia.

Highlights include 5 metres at 6.62 g/t gold from 79 metres including 1-metre at 15.05 g/t gold.


In the month of October, Bryah Resources Limited (ASX: BYH) announced that it has discovered several zones of gold mineralization in drilling at the Windalah Prospect which lies within the Company’s Bryah Basin Project. On 22 November 2018, the company provided an update on drilling and announced the latest high-grade results.
