JUNIOR EXPLORER Bryah Resources – which has more than 900sqkm of highly prospective ground in the Bryah Basin and Gabanintha in Western Australia – has announced samples have tested up to 49.5% manganese (Mn).
Bryah Resources managing director Neil Marston said: “This result is extremely encouraging because it adds another string to the bow of our promising junior explorer. Not only does the company have favorable copper and gold targets, the high-grade presence of the emerging battery metal, manganese, has also been confirmed.
“We knew there were significant manganese anomalies, but our recent work has verified very high grades.
“The global outlook for manganese is extremely good, there is a shortage of supply and increased demand which is driving up manganese ore prices, up 50% in the last 6 months.
“Now the company’s planned exploration program for 2018, subject to necessary approvals, will also feature manganese targets.”
Manganese is used in steel production and as a battery component, notably in electric vehicles.
Bryah Resources’ 718sqkm Bryah Basin Project is about 100-150km north of Meekatharra. The Bryah Basin is home to two significant copper-gold discoveries – the historic Horseshoe Lights mine (closed in 1994) and Sandfire’s DeGrussa mine (discovered in 2009).
