MAX RESOURCE CORP. (TSXV: MAX) (OTC Pink: MXROF) (FSE: M1D2) (” Max” or the “Business”) is delighted to offer the following expedition upgrade on its 100% owned CESAR Copper-Silver Task situated in Northeast Colombia.
- Max Resource has actually begun the 2023 expedition season with over $15 million in the treasury.
- In the last two-years, Max has actually gathered 6,500 surface area rock samples over the 90-km-long CESAR belt: 1,125 samples have actually returned worths higher than 1.0% copper with typical grades of 3.5% copper and 36 g/t silver.
- Max’s geological team has actually now begun to review the clusters of the outcrops with grades >> 1.0% copper and carrying out in-depth mapping with the goal of defining feeders; this has actually resulted in the discovery of 2 brand-new top priority targets (” Sierra” at AM and “Potrero Grande” at URU).
- Currently, 6 top priority targets are being examined (Herradura, Sierra, Molino, Potrero Grande, URU South Target 1 and Target 2). At the exact same time, the local program continues with the goal to determine extra targets (describe Figure 1).
- Current drilling at the AM District has actually validated Kupfershiefer design stratiform mineralization exists.
- Metallurgical screening of URU-C and URU-CE drill samples is underway.
Max is taking a two-pronged method to on-going expedition on its CESAR job: 1) examine and focus on existing targets within the 187-km ² of mining concessions for drill screening; and 2) continue the local tasting and prospecting program to determine extra copper-silver targets along the 90-km long CESAR belt.
” The supreme objective of our in-depth mapping and geophysical studies is to mark several drill-ready targets along this enormous copper system within Max’s wholly-owned CESAR Task,” commented Max CEO, Brett Matich.

Drill Target Assessment & & Prioritization
The tasting, in addition to geological mapping, has actually currently recognized 6 top priority potential customers and has actually assisted to specify 2 main deposit designs: a red-bed/Kupfershiefer design stratiform copper mineralization at AM and Central African Copper Belt design, along with structurally managed mineralization, at URU and Conejo.
In parallel, orientation geophysical studies have actually begun over targets where copper mineralization is outcropping at surface area and there is proof of historic artisanal mining.
The objective of the orientation studies is to determine which geophysical strategies best determine the copper mineralization based upon the 2 depositional designs. Ground geophysical approaches consisting of Magneto Telluric (” MT”), Magnetic, Gravity, Caused Polarization (” IP”) and Electro-magnetic (” EM”) are being checked. In addition, historic seismic information gathered over the potential customers are being re-processed and translated.
Evidence of Principle at AM Mining Concessions (112 km ²)
Max started the 2023 expedition season on the AM mining concessions in the northern part of the CESAR Task. The Business’s hypothesis in this location of the job is that mineralization is sediment-hosted and stratiform, which is comparable in design to the Kupfershiefer deposits situated in main Europe.
Geological mapping and historic artisanal mining at the “Herradura” and “Sierra” targets, situated within the AM mining concessions, shows that mineralization happens in a minimum of 4 horizons in the stratigraphic series. To verify the connection of mineralization and its hypothesis, Max drilled 2 scout holes (describe Table 1 and Figure 2) down dip from surface area direct exposures at “Herradura” in January 2023. The holes were spaced 250m apart and drilled to a depth of roughly 350m. Both converged several copper-replacement beds including malachite and chalcocite with copper worths varying from 0.04% to 0.96%.

Metallurgical Research studies and drill targets at URU Mining Concessions (74 km ²)(* )In late 2022, Max began its inaugural drilling program at the URU District, in the southern part of the CESAR Task. The goal was to check the connection of the structurally managed copper silver mineralization within the volcanic host rocks in the sub-basinal environment of the CESAR sedimentary basin.
Drilling included 12 holes at the URU-C target and 2 holes at the URU-CE target, situated 750m apart for an overall of 2,244 m. 12 holes converged mineralized zones, with 6 converging considerable copper silver mineralization, consisting of 10.6 m at 3.4% copper and 48 g/t silver.
ALS Metallurgy (” ALS”) are carrying out metal healing analysis of the top-quality URU-C mineralization where chip channel tasting returned 7.0% copper and 115 g/t silver over 9.0 m.
In addition, ALS are carrying out leach healing screening of samples from URU-CE drill hole URU-9, which converged broad copper mineralization with associated change zone suggesting capacity for a bulk tonnage system, returning 33.0 m of 0.3% copper, consisting of 16.5 m of 0.5% copper.
Start of Geophysical Orientation Studies
In February 2023, Max engaged Southern Rock Geophysics to begin an MT orientation study on 2 8-km lines within the AM mining concessions. The lines cover where drilling, mapping, geochemical tasting and artisanal mining have actually specified engaging copper-silver targets. MT works in mapping the significant lithological systems also determining prospective ingrained, mineralizing structures (describe Figure 2).
Regional Expedition and Target Advancement
Max is carrying out on-going local expedition, which has actually currently recognized 2 brand-new copper-silver potential customers in 2023. Work is being carried out over the whole length of the CESAR job and is targeted at discovering target locations that can be additional improved. The program consists of on-going prospecting and local stream sediment tasting programs. Max is likewise preparing home scale magnetic – radiometric and LiDAR studies to help with geological and structural mapping.
Max follows a rigorous QA/QC program for core handling, tasting, sample transport and analyses. Drill core samples were safely transferred to the Business’s core center in Valledupar, Colombia. Samples were sawn in half, identified, positioned in sealed, securitized bags and delivered straight for sample preparation at ALS Colombia LTDA in Medellin and analysis was finished at ALS lab in Lima, Peru. Inspect assays were done at Actlabs in Medellin, Colombia.
The ALS Medellin analytical method was ME-ICP 61, a four-acid food digestion of a 0.25 g sample evaluated on an Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) with ceilings of 100 ppm for silver and 10,000 ppm for copper. Over limitations for copper or silver were evaluated with the OG62 method, a four-acid food digestion of a 0.4 g sample.
The Actlabs Medellin analytical method was TD-AA, a 4-acid food digestion of a 0.25 g tested for copper and silver evaluated on an Atomic Absorption (AA) system, both with ceilings of 100 ppm for silver and 10,000 ppm for copper. Over limitations for copper or silver were evaluated with the 8 4 Acid ICP method, a four-acid food digestion of a 0.4 g sample.
QA/QC control treatments consist of the methodical insertion of replicate, blank and qualified referral products (CRM), at routine periods into the tasting stream.
Max’s CESAR Task lies along the copper silver abundant CESAR basin in NE Colombia. This area supplies access to significant facilities arising from oil & & gas and mining operations, consisting of Cerrejón, the biggest coal mine in South America, held by international miner Glencore. Max’s twenty mining concessions jointly cover over 188-km ² (describe Figure 1).
In 2022, Max carried out a 2-year co-operation arrangement with Endeavour Silver Corp., which helps Max to considerably broaden its 100% owned landholdings at CESAR, Endeavour will hold a hidden 0.5% NSR.
Beginning in the far north of the Jurassic basin, timeless stacked red bed outcrops with comprehensive lateral connection have actually been rock tested over numerous kilometres within the AM District. Emphasize worths of 34.4% copper and 305 g/t silver have actually been recorded in the sedimentary red bed series.
The Conejo District, midway south, shows mineralization at the contact of intermediate and felsic volcanics which outcrops over 3.7-km. The average of surface area samples over a 2.0% cut-off been available in at 4.9% copper.
To the far south, the 2022 inaugural drilling was started at 2 mineralized surface area direct exposures, each situated 0.75-km apart and lie within the URU District’s 20-km-long, 2-km large mineralized target location. The drill program at URU-C and URU-CE was the very first chance to check connection of the structurally managed copper silver mineralization within the volcanic host rocks in the sub-basinal environment of the CESAR sedimentary basin.
The Business’s disclosure of a technical or clinical nature in this press release was examined and authorized by Tim Henneberry, PGeo (British Columbia), a member of limit Resource board of advisers, who functions as a certified individual under the meaning of National Instrument 43-101.
