High-Grade Rock Chips Up To 54.9% Mn Confirms Further Manganese Prospectivity

Bryah Resources Limited (ASX: BYH, “Bryah” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce manganese rock chip and drilling results at its 49% owned Bryah Basin manganese project. The results are part of the program drilled in July 2022 in addition to mapping and associated rock chips in new areas. Bryah (49%) and OM (Manganese) Ltd (OMM) (51%) have a Joint Venture (JV) to undertake exploration to test targets in the area, with a view to commencing manganese production. OMM is a wholly owned subsidiary of OM Holdings Limited (ASX: OMH), one of the world’s leading suppliers of manganese ores.


  • Mapping and rock chip results:
    • Black Hill Northeast prospect include: 54.9% Mn, 50.3% Mn, 49.5% Mn, 53.3% Mn
    • Gold Trip prospect include: 47.5% Mn, 45.7% Mn, 38.2% Mn, 35.5% Mn
    • Epona prospect include: 41.5% Mn, 38.1% Mn, 36.3% Mn, 33.3% Mn,
    • Black Beauty North prospect include: 42.4% Mn, 40.0% Mn, 39.2% Mn, 35.7% Mn
  • RC drilling to commence at all four prospects and additional drilling at Brumby Creek after Program of Works and Heritage approvals.
Commenting on the drilling, Bryah CEO Ashley Jones said: “The more we look in this area, the more prospects we discover that need to be drilled. These new prospects are high priority drill targets this year. Between newly identified GAIP anomalies and prospects identified from mapping, we have many new targets to test. Our drilling strategy is focussed on increasing the current JORC resource and reaching a critical mass to restart operations.”

The Bryah Basin project area is located approximately 100km north of the town of Meekatharra in Western Australia. The Company’s tenements and manganese mineral rights cover 1,135km² over parts of the western Bryah Basin.

Mapping and rock chip results were taken over 4 new areas, Black Hill Northeast, Gold Trip, Epona and Black Beauty North.

Black Hill Northeast

Northeast of the Black Hill resource area, outcropping Mn was outlined and sampled. The area was identified by the Gradient Array Induced Polarisation (GAIP) surveys and both chargeable and conductive, which are the key criteria that Bryah and OMM are assessing for Mn mineralisation. Assaying of the rock chips showed excellent supergene enrichment of the Mn, returning grades high in Mn with low Fe.

Gold Trip

The Gold Trip prospect occurs on a newly added tenement to the joint venture, acquired by Bryah late in 2021. The outcropping manganese appears to dip under cover to the east and provides an excellent downslope target.
