VANCOUVER, April 12 /CNW/ - MAX Resource Corp. (TSXV: MXR) (OTCBB: MXROF) (Frankfurt: M1D) has completed a six hole core drill program at the company's wholly
owned Table Top gold project in Humboldt County, Nevada. Table Top is
located 10 miles west of the town of Winnemucca, immediately south of
the Sandman gold project, one of the Nevada properties included in the
recent acquisition of Fronteer Gold Inc. by Newmont Mining Corp.
Six diamond core holes were drilled at Table Top for a total of 497
metres. Five holes were drilled to the northeast of previous drilling
and a sixth was drilled to identify 1+ gram gold intercepts found by
surface sampling southwest of last year's drilling and 155 metres from
the next nearest drill hole. Drill core is currently being split and
assay results are pending.
Table Top is located along the Kings River Rift, a regional geologic
feature that appears to control mineralization in the area and which
hosts multiple high-grade vein-related gold systems. Along this trend
is AMAX's Sleeper Canyon Mine (2.5 MM oz Au produced), located 25 miles
to the north, the Goldbanks gold occurrence located 37 miles to the
south, and the Sandman gold deposits, now owned by Newmont, immediately
to the north.
Majuba Hill Copper/Silver project
At Majuba Hill, excavation of roads and drill sites is underway for a
six hole core drill program to begin on patented land in late
April. Majuba Hill is the site of a number of past-producing
high-grade copper and silver mines. The company's initial exploration
program is designed to expand and define the extensive zones of high
grade copper/silver mineralization identified during
reverse-circulation drilling conducted by Minterra in 2007. Highlights
of Minterra's drilling included 145 feet at 1.85 opt and 0.49% Cu, inclusive of 15 feet at 5.01 opt Ag (hole MH-6) and 100 feet at 0.99 opt Ag, inclusive of 15 feet at 4.00 opt Ag (hole MH-5). The mineralized system is open to the north, east and west
and to depth. In addition, soil sampling is planned for two areas of
copper/silver mineralization identified to the west and to the east of
the mineralized zone, where copper samples as high as 7.2% Cu and 3 opt Ag in outcrop have been reported by previous operators and have not yet
been fully mapped or explored.
Majuba Hill encompasses 2,313 acres of surface and mineral rights
comprising patented and unpatented lode mining claims and private
mineral rights. Majuba Hill is 30 miles northwest of Coeur d'Alene's
Rochester mine, which has produced 127 million ounces of silver and 1.5
million ounces of gold since 1986. The property is easily accessed via
23 miles of well-maintained dirt roads leading from United States
