Bryah Resources has commenced drilling at the high-grade Tumblegum South gold project located within its Gabanintha project in central Western Australia.
Through recent 3D modelling, the Company has identified potential opportunities to extend existing zoned of gold mineralisation.
The modelling indicated that mineralised zones intersected in earlier drilling were generally open along strike or down plunge/ dip. Based on this, the Company believes that extensional drilling was warranted to further test the mineralised lenses and the extent of historical underground workings.
Bryah announced a further 16 drill holes, with the aim to test for a southerly plunge extension to the high-grade mineralisation intersected in BGRC005 and BGCR015.
Managing Director, Neil Marston, was delighted that drilling commenced within hours of finalising the AU$2 million placement last week.
“This drilling forms a key part of our short-term strategy, which is to define gold mineral resources at Tumblegum South where such resources could potentially be treated through nearby gold processing facilities.
“We had some very encouraging results in our 2017 programme, so we look forward to completing this programme over the next fortnight and report the results in the weeks following.”
Bryah holds a suite of mineral rights over tenements covering 170km2 held by Australian Vanadium. These rights are for all minerals, excluding vanadium, titanium, cobalt, chromium, uranium, lithium, tantalum, iron and manganese.
The nearest gold processing plants to the Tumblegum South prospect are located at the Burnakura mine, 20 kilometres to the southwest; and the Bluebird gold mine, 33 kilometres to the northwest.
