Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - November 24, 2020) - MAX RESOURCE CORP. (TSXV: MXR) (OTC Pink: MXROF) (FSE: M1D2) ("Max" or the "Company") is pleased to report the purchase of the underlying 15% net production royalties over AM North and AM South, at the Company's wholly owned CESAR copper-silver project, North Eastern Colombia (refer to Figure 2).
The terms include:
- Annual payments of USD$50,000 over ten years (2020 is paid);
- Vendors retain a 3% NSR (net smelter royalty); and
- Max has the exclusive rights to purchase 100% of the 3% NSR for USD$4,000,000, at any time prior to production.
"The removal of royalties on our CESAR project is a significant step in Max's strategy of creating a pathway to secure assets unencumbered from royalties and continue the landholding expansion in this prolific copper-silver district," commented Max CEO, Brett Matich.
Colombia Gold Symposium in Medellin, Colombia 2020
Recently, a presentation comparing the Kupferschiefer with the CESAR project was delivered by leading Kupferschiefer expert, Professor Adam Piestrzyński from AGH. The video presentation may be viewed on the website: www.maxresource.com Source: "Stratabound/Redbed type Copper-Silver mineralization in the Cesar-Rancheria Basin, NE Colombia and the Kupferschiefer stratabound Copper-Silver deposit" by Prof. A. Piestrzyński (2020).
As presented, the similarities between Kupferschiefer were: basin characteristics, lithology, mineralogy, deposit parameters, grades and origin of sulfur. A notable difference is that, the Kupferschiefer orebody starts at 500-metres below surface, whereas Max's CESAR copper-silver mineralization starts at surface (refer to Figure 1).
"Our CESAR copper-silver project was recently presented at the Colombia Gold Symposium by Professor Piestrzyński. He postulated, that this new discovery of sediment hosted copper-silver mineralization at CESAR could lead to the discovery of several major copper-silver occurrences, similar in size and nature to Kupferschiefer in Poland and Germany. Initial exploration by Max maybe just the tip of the iceberg," commented CEO, Brett Matich.
Max believes CESAR is analogous to the Kupferschiefer. Those deposits are Europe's largest copper source, which produced 3MT grading 1.49% copper and 48.6 g/t silver in 2018 from a mineralized zone of 0.5 to 5.5-metre thickness.

In addition, the Kupferschiefer deposits, also yielded 40Mozs of silver in 2019, almost twice the production of the world's second largest silver mine (World Silver Survey 2020). Max cautions investors that the presence of copper-silver mineralization at Kupferschiefer is not necessarily indicative of similar mineralization at CESAR.

CESAR COPPER-SILVER PROJECT - COLOMBIA
The CESAR project spans an area ~500sq. km in North Eastern Colombia and consists of three stratabound zones: AM North, AM South and CESAR South, forming a major part of a 200-km long sediment-hosted copper-silver belt. The CESAR region enjoys major infrastructure; mining operations of Cerrejon, the largest coal mine in Latin America, jointly owned by global miners BHP Billiton, XStrata and Anglo American (refer to Figure 2).
Important highlights and exploration activity on multiple fronts:
- The AM North zone, forms an 11-km of stratabound copper-silver mineralization that is open along strike and down dip. Also contains a high-grade area with varying intervals grading 4.0 to 34.4% copper + 28 to 305 g/t silver (July 29, 2020). Bulk samples extracted from each end of the 1.8-km discovery horizon, returned 9.4% copper + 79 g/t silver and 3.5 % copper + 29 g/t silver (May 21, 2020);
- The AM South zone occurs along the same mineralized trend, 40-km SSW of the AM North zone. AM South covers an area of 4-km by 4-km, and remains open laterally. The cumulative strike length of the open-ended AM South horizons exceeds 6.4-km. Highlight values of 6.8% copper and 168 g/t silver from 0.1 to 25-metre intervals, suggesting these horizons could be of significant size (October 7, 2020);
- CESAR South, a newly acquired 340 sq. km property, copper-silver stratabound mineralization extends over at least 15-km strike length, with highlight grab sample values of 11.4% copper + 656 g/t silver;
- Fathom Geophysics is currently interpreting geophysical data funded by the Company in collaboration with one of the world's leading copper producers;
- Ongoing structural analysis of the CESAR project and interpretation of seismic data is being conducted by Ingeniería Geológica Universidad Nacional de Colombia ("IGUN") in Medellín, in conjunction with the Max field team;
- Ongoing structural analysis and seismic data interpretation of the CESAR project is being conducted by Ingeniería Geológica Universidad Nacional de Colombia ("IGUN") in Medellín, and the Max field team;
- Max has entered into three non-exclusive confidentiality agreements regarding the CESAR project with: one of the world's leading copper producers; a global mining company and a mid-tier copper explorer;
- Planned work: logging and XRF analysis for copper of available drill core and RC chips from historical oil and gas drilling in the western portion of the basin;
- Continue to expand the landholdings along the 200-km long CESAR copper silver belt;
- The exploration priorities for Max at CESAR project are: regional surface geochemical sampling, structural mapping, seismic data interpretation and logging of the oil-gas drill hole core chips.
RT GOLD PROPERTY - PERU
Max also holds the RT Gold property in Peru, which consists of two contiguous mineral concessions covering 1,983 hectare and sited along the Condor mountain chain of northern Peru, within the Cajamarca Metallogenic belt, 760-km NW of Lima in the District of Tabaconas. Max has rights to acquire a 100% interest by making annual payments of US$300,000 over four years and an additional US $3,000,000 payment on or before the fifth anniversary. The Vendors will retain a 2.5% NSR on the property.

Two distinct mineralized systems occur within the RT Gold property: the Cerro Zone, a bulk tonnage gold-bearing porphyry, and 3-km to the NW, the Tablon Zone, a gold-bearing massive sulfide zone. The last field exploration was conducted almost a decade ago.
The Cerro Zone hosts several known mineralized zones (Peak, West, Breccia and Cathedral) with anomalous concentrations of gold in rock and soils:
- Structures assaying 0.1 to 62.9 g/t gold, hosted in mineralized wall rock returning gold values of 0.5 to 1.0 g/t gold;
- Soil geochemistry for gold in the Cerro Zone has outlined a 2.0-km by 1.5-km gold anomaly, open in all directions grading from 0.1 to 4.0 g/t gold;
- Soil geochemistry for gold is coincident with IP chargeability;
- The Cerro Zone has never been drill tested.
The Tablon Zone is located 3-km NW from the Cerro Zone and hosts numerous gold-bearing massive to semi-massive sulphide bodies over a 150-metre by 450-metre area, within a larger 1.0-km by 1.5-km area of anomalous gold. A total of 33 holes were diamond drilled in 2001 at Tablon with highlight intersections of:
- RT-06 returned 3.1 g/t gold over 21.4m from 9.1m;
- RT-11 returned 5.3 g/t gold over 17.1m from 12.0m;
- RT-13 returned 8.8 g/t gold over 25.4m from 13.4m;
- RT-21 returned 5.1 g/t gold over 19.5m from 1.5m;
- RT-22 returned 4.9 g/t gold over 14.1m from 40.1m;
- RT-25 returned 13.0 g/t gold over 36.1m from 33.0m;
- RT-26 returned 7.0 g/t gold over 6.0m from 0.0m;
- RT-29 returned 18.0 g/t gold over 16.4m from 34.9m, includes 118.1 g/t gold over 2.2m from 42.0m.

The Max technical team is currently reviewing and digitizing proprietary data for subsequent interpretation for target generation. A program of field verification by the Max in-country team: mapping, surveying and sampling is scheduled to follow. Concurrent with the verification program, the Company will initiate drill permitting.
