VANCOUVER, Sept. 23 /CNW/ - MAX Resource Corp. (TSX.V: MXR; OTCBB: MXROF;
Frankfurt: M1D) has commenced drilling on the Indata gold/copper project in
central British Columbia, located 130 kilometres north of the community of
Fort St. James. Two target types exist on the Indata property - a lode gold
target related to subsidiary structures to the adjacent Pinchi Fault system
and a porphyry copper target probably related to Jurassic intrusions which
have invaded these same structures.
The current program will start by completing a hole beneath a hole
drilled in 1998 which returned 145 metres grading 0.20% copper including a
final 24 metres grading 0.37% copper. The 1998 drill program, as well as
drilling conducted in 1996, was focused on an area where a drill access
road-trench completed in 1995 had exposed significant copper mineralization,
including a 75 metre section averaging 0.37% copper.
On completion of the first hole, drilling will move to the lode gold
target where several holes are planned to test deeper levels of the system
following insight garnered from the Mother Lode deposit model developed in
California. The Melones Fault Break, central to the California Mother Lode
district, has been interpreted by a number of geologists to be analogous to
the Pinchi Fault Break adjacent to the Indata property in British Columbia. Of
particular interest to the current program will be a hole planned to test
below a drill hole completed in 1988 that intercepted four metres grading
47.26 grams per tonne gold.
Indata is one of two exploration projects in British Columbia recently
optioned from Eastfield Resources Ltd. (TSX.V:ETF) as announced in our news
release of June 9, 2008. The other property optioned from Eastfield, the
Howell gold project in south-eastern British Columbia, was the subject of a
recent exploration program, with 1,300 metres of core drilling completed.
Analytical work is continuing and results are expected by mid October. At
Howell, a new area of carbonate hosted mineralization is evident in soil
sample results recently received which indicate an area of highly anomalous
gold, silver, zinc and lead results with maximum values for soil samples
exceeding 10,000 ppm lead and 100 ppm silver.
