Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 6, 2018) - MAX RESOURCE CORP. (TSXV: MXR) (OTC Pink: MXROF) (FSE: M1D) ("MXR" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has filed five initial mineral license applications covering a total area of 9,384 hectares, located within the Gachala sedimentary copper basin of Eastern Colombia, approximately 60kms east of Bogata (Refer: Gachala Project Area map).
MXR's Gachala 100% owned license applications encompass an aggregate total of 27 line kilometres of the 250km by 120km belt of Devonian through Cretaceous age rocks in a geological setting conducive to hosting sedimentary copper deposits, believed to be analogous to the Zambian Copper Belt of Africa. (Source: Rodriguez and Warden (1993). Overview of some Colombian gold deposits and their development potential. Mineralium Deposita Volume 28, pages 47-57). The Gachala mineralization appears to be localized at the contact between the Devonian-Permian red beds overlying Cretaceous reducing black shales, one of the settings typical of these copper deposits.
Brett Matich, MXR Chief Executive Officer, commented: "I am excited with our early success in developing MXR's strategy of identifying sedimentary copper hosted mineralization within the Gachala region. We believe the underexplored Gachala region has the potential to become the world's next copper frontier."
Three of the license applications cover a 19 kilometre long continuous section of the Cano Negro area, where historic sampling has identified a 25 kilometre strike length of copper enrichment with grades ranging from 0.6% to 13% copper. (Source: C. Rodriguez and A.J.Warden. 1993 Overview of Some Colombian Gold Deposits and Their Development Potential. Mineralium Deposita Volume 28, pages 47-57.) The Cano Negro area appears to lie on the eastern limb of the 32 kilometre "Anticlinal Montecristo".
The remaining two license applications cover the western limb of the "Anticlinal Montecristo" in the area adjacent to and immediately north of the Sinai Property where Rio Tinto Mining and Exploration Limited completed stream sediment and limited rock sampling in 1999. They took a total of 47 rock samples with 12 returning values in excess of 1% copper, ranging from 1.6% to 7.82%. (Source: E.E.Vargas Ruiz, 1999. Exploracion Geoquimica Chivor Colombia Rio Tinto Mining and Exploration Limited.) MXR cautions investors that mineralization on the Sinai Property is not necessarily indicative of similar mineralization on the MXR license applications. MXR's Gachala license application areas were visited by MXR Geologist R. Tim Henneberry, P.Geo. and Colombian Geologist Carlos Gaviria at the end of May during an initial reconnaissance. A Colombian exploration team under Mr. Gaviria will commence surface survey exploration programs mid-June to confirm the 1993 and 1999 sampling results and locate and identify bedrock copper mineralization for following up trenching and diamond drilling.
