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.”
