Recently completed diamond drilling at Bryah’s manganese assets intersected mineralisation consistent with the geological interpretation from earlier drilling.

This is particularly notable given that previous drilling had intersected high-grade mineralisation.

Bryah Resources (ASX:BYH) highlighted drill hole BRDD005 that tested a high-grade zone of manganese identified by reverse circulation drilling at Area 74 within the Brumby Creek prospect.

Zones of blue-grey high-grade manganese are clearly visible in the BRDD005 drill core and are generally separate from the red-brown iron rich shale zones.

Bryah Resources will hold on to its 70 per cent stake in a Mid West manganese project, after joint buyers Primero Group and investment firm AMCI withdrew their $5 million offer.



Bryah is retaining its interest in the Bryah Basin Manganese Joint Venture after an acquisition offer fell over, but the company is happy to retain the project.

And it is not hard to see why.

Manganese has received a lot of love recently as the industrial metal, which is typically used in the manufacture of steel, is increasingly being seen as a low-cost solution for the manufacture of batteries for the growing electric vehicle sector.

This has been sparked in large part by Tesla’s introduction of a new battery with a cathode that is 33 per cent manganese.



Gold has been uncovered at the Gabanintha project in central Western Australia, where Bryah Resources (ASX:BYH) holds a suite of mineral rights. 

Up to 3 grams per tonne (g/t) gold were recorded in the latest assay results from an initial selection of historical drill samples from Australian Vanadium’s (ASX:AVL) namesake project within Gabanintha.

Additionally, a review of metallurgical test work undertaken by AVL showed the presence of gold along with cobalt, nickel and copper in the non-magnetic tail after separation of the vanadium, titanium and magnetite.

A subsidiary of ASX-listed OM Holdings, OM Manganese, has waived its pre-emptive rights to match a A$5-million conditional cash offer for ASX-listed Bryah Resources interest in the Bryah Basin manganese joint venture (JV).

Bryah last year announced a A$5-million transaction with ASX-listed Primero Group and natural resources specialist investor AMCI Group to divest of its manganese rights over the JV tenement package, allowing Bryah to maintain exposure to all other commodities within the licence.



The $5m cash windfall will enable Bryah Resources (ASX:BYH) – which recently raised another $1.3m — to more aggressively focus on its gold-copper assets in WA as well as evaluating other opportunities, it says.

In November, Bryah received a $5 million cash offer for its interest in the Bryah Basin Manganese Joint Venture with OM Holdings (ASX:OMH).

The bid came from well-funded mining services play Primero Group (ASX:PGX) and natural resources specialist investor, AMCI Group.

OMH – which holds a 30 per cent interest and is funding further exploration to earn up to a 51 per cent from Bryah — had a pre-emptive right to match the cash offer.

OMH has now advised Bryah that it will not match the offer, which allows the explorer to finalise the $5m deal.

Importantly, Bryah retains rights to all commodities other than manganese over the joint venture area, which is highly prospective for copper and gold.
