For Perth resident Samantha Kemp, a financially-motivated foray into the mining industry quickly became a rewarding and enriching pursuit that has propelled her throughout her entire career.

In her role at Sample Data, the Western Australian-based geological data service consultancy she created, Sam works with a number of small resource companies, particularly those in the exploration phase.

Through her work, Sam helps support these small resource companies in determining whether a new or existing site is suitable for mining and then helping prepare that information for market release.

The 37-year-old mother of two said her professional life was challenging, but rewarding.


Rock chip and soil sampling have recorded anomalism extending over a contact length of 700 metres at Wongawar prospect.

Bryah Resources (ASX: BYH) has discovered another new potentially significant copper-gold anomaly within its Bryah Basin project in central Western Australia.

The anomaly at a new prospect called Wongawar has been identified through a combination of rock chip and soil sampling.

Rock chip samples have recorded assays of up to 1.17 g/t gold and 693 ppm copper with anomalism extending over a contact length of 700 metres.


Bryah Resources (ASX: BYH) has firmed up a new copper-gold anomaly at its flagship Bryah Basin project in Western Australia.

Named Wongawar, the new anomaly was discovered from soil and rock chip sampling that was carried out at the project last year.

Rock chips returned up to 1.17 grams per tonne gold and 693 parts per million copper.

Meanwhile, previous drilling in 1990 at Wongawar had intersected 16m at 0.18g/t gold. However, no follow up exploration has been undertaken at the prospect until now.

“The sampling results seen at the Wongawar prospect are very encouraging because they indicate a highly prospective anomaly over a wide area in what is very unexplored terrain,” Bryah managing director Neil Marston said.

“At Wongawar we now have several samples anomalous in gold and copper.”
