Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 22, 2024) - MAX RESOURCE CORP.  (TSXV: MAX) (OTC Pink: MXROF) (FSE: M1D2)("Max" or the "Company") is pleased to report that two additional mineralized outcrops have been discovered at target AM-14, located on the Company's Mining Concession within the AM District of its wholly-owned Cesar Copper-Silver Project, Northeastern Colombia. In addition, the Company has received the final data from the 10,000 line-km property-wide airborne magnetic and radiometric survey.


The discoveries at AM-14 highlight the scale of potential deposits on the Cesar Copper-Silver Project:

  • AM-14 lies along a 15-km corridor of high-grade, stratiform Copper-Silver mineralization (refer to Figure 1).
  • The 15-km corridor is parallel to the regional strike of the sedimentary rocks and has highlight grades of 24.8% Copper and 230 g/t Silver.
  • These discoveries bring the total number of outcrops at AM-14 to 7 and provide further confirmation that several horizons of stratiform mineralization are present within the sedimentary sequence in the AM District.
  • The Copper-Silver bearing outcrops are exposed up to 285m along strike and are up to 4.0m thick.
  • There is strong evidence for continuity of mineralized layers between AM-14 and AM-07, a distance of 1.5-km.

Airborne magnetic and radiometric data is an important tool in identifying the geological structures that controlled the flow and emplacement of the mineralized fluids:

  • Over 10,000 line-km high-resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric survey collected.
  • Survey area covers 114,650 sq-km of prospective geology.
  • Data analysis and a structural interpretation are underway with results expected in Q2.

"The exploration crews continue to expand the Company's latest Copper-Silver discoveries in multiple directions, confirming significant horizontal extents of multiple Copper-Silver horizons, duplicating the success at other AM targets, at the Conejo and at URU Districts," commented MAX CEO Brett Matich.

"Concentrated exploration in each of these three areas along 120-km's of the CESAR Basin continues to expand the Copper-Silver mineralization footprint, strongly supporting Max's geological model for CESAR as an analog to both Kupferschiefer in Poland/Germany and Kamoa-Kakula in DRC," he concluded.

AM-14 Outcrops
Mineralization at target AM-14 is hosted in layers of medium to fine-grained sandstone rich in organic material. The Copper-Silver bearing horizons are within a 700-metre-thick package of interbedded sedimentary rocks that strike 240⁰ to 260⁰ and dip 30⁰ to 45⁰. northwest. Chalcocite, malachite and azurite are the most abundant copper minerals observed in the outcrop (refer to Figure 2 to 4).

The newly discovered mineralized beds are up to 2.2m thick and are exposed for several metres along strike before disappearing under cover. Systematic channel sampling of the mineralized outcrop has now commenced. Crews will continue detailed mapping in the vicinity of the discoveries with the goal of extending the footprint of mineralization.

Airborne Magnetic & Radiometric Survey
The 10,000 line-kilometre high-resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric survey has been completed and final data received from the survey contractor (refer to Figure 5). Survey data were collected along East-West oriented flight-lines spaced at 125m and flown at a nominal height of 100m using a fixed-wing aircraft (refer Figure 6). North-South oriented tie-lines were spaced at 1.25-km.

Analysis of the data has commenced with emphasis being placed on identifying geological structures that acted the conduits for mineralized fluids. Results from the data analysis will be important in both refining existing targets and identifying new ones.

The Cesar Copper Silver Project comprises three districts: AM, Conejo and URU. Collectively the three contiguous districts stretch over 120-km in NNE/SSW direction (refer to Figure 7).

This region provides access to major infrastructure resulting from oil & gas and mining operations, including Cerrejón, the largest coal mine in South America, held by global miner Glencore. Max's twenty mining concessions collectively span over 188-km².

In 2022, Max executed a 2-year co-operation agreement with Endeavour Silver Corp. (TSX: EDR) (NYSE: EXK), which assists to expand its 100% owned landholdings, Endeavour will hold an underlying 0.5% NSR.

AM District
Starting in the far north of the Jurassic basin, classic stacked red bed outcrops with extensive lateral continuity have been rock sampled over many kilometres within the AM District. Highlight values of 34.4% copper and 305 g/t silver have been documented in the sedimentary red bed sequences. The Company confirmed that stratiform mineralization continues at depth with two scout drill holes completed earlier this year (Max News Release dated April 4, 2023). In addition, Colombian field crews continue to discover and sample new mineralized outcrops including at the recently identified AM-7 target (Max News Release dated May 25, 2023 and Max News Release dated June 22, 2023).

Conejo District
Midway south, the Conejo District is the most recent to be recognized and is characterized by structurally controlled mineralization hosted in intermediate and felsic volcanic rocks. Numerous mineralized outcrops have been discovered over 3.7-km at the primary target in the district with surface samples averaging 4.9% copper (2% cut-off). No drilling has been conducted at Conejo, but it has emerged as an area of focus for the Company.

URU District
Mineralization within the URU District is hosted in intermediate volcanic rocks and is structurally controlled, similar to deposits in the Central African Copper Belt. At URU-C, a 9.0m of 7.0% copper and 115 g/t silver surface discovery was confirmed at depth by drill hole URU-12, which intersected 10.6m of 3.4% copper and 48 g/t silver. At the URU-CE target, 750m to the east, 19.0m of 1.3% copper discovered in outcrop was confirmed by drill hole URU-9, which intersected a broad zone of copper oxide returning 33.0m of 0.3% copper from 4.0m, including 16.5m of 0.5% copper (Max News Release date January 24, 2023).

CESAR Target Evaluation

Max has identified and is evaluating 28 targets along the 120-km-long belt for potential drill testing. The Company is focused on expanding, refining, and prioritizing these targets in preparation for a drill program. Initial efforts have been concentrated on those targets with the greatest size potential with work that includes the following field activities:

  • Systematic chip and channel sampling of the mineralized outcrops.
  • Detailed geological and structural mapping of each showing.
  • Target scale prospecting and soil sampling.
  • Airborne Magnetic/Radiometric Surveys.

Regional Exploration
Max has demonstrated that the Cesar basin is fertile for copper-silver mineralization over a large area; however, only a fraction of the basin has been explored. As a result, Max has dedicated one of its geological teams to regional exploration with the goal of discovering additional copper-silver prospects within its land package covering more than 1,000 sq-km.
