Drilling will begin in September and be based off 3D modelling which has identified potential opportunities to extend existing zones of gold-copper mineralisation at Tumblegum South.
This program of drilling will follow up on a 26-hole reverse circulation (RC) program from December 2017, which produced peak 1-metre gold grades of 32.18 g/t gold.
The objective of the upcoming drill program is to collect enough data to estimate a JORC-compliant resource at Tumblegum South.
Bryah’s managing director Neil Marston said: “Following the successful initiation of Bryah’s manganese exploration strategy we can now also turn our attention to the highly prospective gold-copper assets held by Bryah, both in the Bryah Basin and at Gabanintha.
“The review and follow-up drilling of the Gabanintha project is just one part of our overall exploration programme and gives Bryah a tremendous opportunity to advance, and in some cases, quickly monetise its gold assets.”
With the AUD gold price trading at all-time highs, it is an opportunistic period to fast-track exploration at prospects such as Tumblegum South with known gold mineralisation.
Bryah could process gold ore through nearby existing facilities
Bryah’s strategy is to define gold resources at the Gabanintha Project where such resources could potentially be processed through nearby existing and future processing facilities.
Active and historical mines located close to the Gabanintha tenements include the Gabanintha, Burnakura, Nannine and Bluebird gold mines.
