RC And Diamond Drilling Campaign Underway In WA
Bryah Resources Limited (ASX:BYH) has commenced a major drilling programme at the company’s Windalah Prospect within its Bryah Basin Project located in central Western Australia.
The company plans to drill approximately 8,000m of Reverse Circulation (RC) /diamond drilling to depths of 350 metres to test below the significant multi- element pathfinder minerals anomaly identified in earlier soil sampling and aircore drilling. This deep drilling is planned to be done in three phases to enable the completion and interpretation of down hole electromagnetic (DHEM) surveys between each drilling phase.
Managing Director, Neil Marston, said Phase 1 RC/diamond drilling of 2,000m is scheduled to commence in the coming days with holes to be prepared for follow-up DHEM surveying.
“With some excellent exploration results achieved last year at the Windalah Prospect we have personnel returning to site this week to drill the first of a series of deep holes to evaluate the potential of this area to host significant copper-gold mineralisation,” Mr Marston said.
“The stratigraphy and geochemistry at Windalah shows strong resemblance to the geological environment of the rich Horseshoe Lights Copper-Gold deposit, located 13 km to the north.
“This drilling will test a highly-prospective corridor exceeding one kilometre in length.”
The RC/diamond drilling programme has been designed to test below the significant VMS pathfinder mineral anomaly at Windalah and where previous drilling has recorded some significant gold results.
In addition to the RC/diamond drilling at Windalah, the company plans to complete over 10,000m of aircore (AC) drilling across several prospect locations in two to three phases, with the first phase of AC drilling planned to start in May 2021.
