Ground mapping and rock chip sampling discovered the Cheval Prospect which is located 5 kilometres from the historical Horseshoe South Manganese Mine.
Manganese outcrops at the Cheval Prospect have been mapped for about 500 metres in length, with 35 rock chip samples collected for multi-element analysis.
Impressively, lab results from the rock chips peaked at 41.4% manganese with 15 samples above 30% manganese and 15 samples grading in the 20-30% range.
Bryah's managing director Neil Marston said: “The new find is particularly exciting in light of Bryah’s recent success in defining significant mineralisation at Brumby Creek.
"Brumby Creek was only identified as an exploration target in July last year and recent drilling was now defining
significant manganese mineralisation.”
Working towards getting drilling underway
The new Cheval Prospect is untested by drilling and will require a heritage survey and Department of Mines Industry Regulation and Safety programme of works approval ahead of any drill testing.
These permitting activities will be progressed by Bryah as soon as possible.
While work advances to commence drilling at Cheval, additional results remain pending from recent exploration drilling at nearby prospects.
Earlier this week, Bryah received significant manganese results from the initial phase of exploration drilling within the Bryah Basin project.
A total of 122 holes for 3,062 metres of reverse circulation drilling was completed in this program at four sites; the historical Horseshoe South Manganese mine, the Brumby Creek and Devils Hill prospects and a nearby prospect named Black Cat.
Results included 15 metres at 26.2% manganese from 3 metres depth at Brumby Creek.
