MAX Commences Drilling at Majuba Hill Copper/Silver Project in Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 20, 2014) - MAX Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MXR)(OTCBB:MXROF)(FRANKFURT:M1D) has commenced core drilling at the Majuba Hill copper/silver project in Nevada. Drilling will test a ridge of high grade copper/silver oxide mineralization sampled by Minterra Resources in 2007 that returned grades of up to 7.72% Cu and 174 g/t Ag in outcrop and has been intersected at depth by MAX during drilling in 2012 (332 m @ 12 g/t Ag and 0.13% Cu in hole MM-21). MAX has now mapped the high grade samples taken by Minterra and they highlight a zone 250 meters across in outcrop that will be tested during this drill program. A map indicating the location of this drilling is available on our website at www.maxresource.com. The Minterra samples highlighted on this map include:

Sample Number Cu Ag
• MHR-160 2.9% 32 g/t
• MHR-157 3.0% 38 g/t
• MHR-158 4.07% 32 g/t
• MHR-159 2.95% 29 g/t
MHR-25 7.72% 90g/t
• MHR-26 2.16% 53 g/t
MHR-145 4.16% 174 g/t
• MHR-27 1.42% 19.6 g/t

MAX's drill hole MM-21 is located approximately 250 m southeast of the middle portal of the past producing Majuba Hill mine, where MAX drilling in 2011 intercepted high grade copper/silver supergene oxide mineralization over long intervals that included:

  • Hole MM-07: 50.3 m of 50.8 g/t Ag, 0.31 g/t gold and 0.31% Cu
  • Hole MM-06: 96.0 m of 39.2 g/t Ag and 0.57% Cu, including 44.2 m of 71.0 g/t Ag, 0.15 g/t Au and 1.14% Cu
  • Hole MM-03: 42.7 m of 37.5 g/t Ag and 0.38% Cu

A map showing drilling locations from previous exploration programs conducted by MAX at Majuba Hill is available on our website at www.maxresource.com.

Twenty nine (29) rock select, chip, and grab samples were taken from outcropping mineralization, historic prospect pits, and an underground adit in this area to be drilled at Majuba Ridge. Values obtained ranged from 80 ppm Cu and 2.65 ppm Ag to 7.72% Cu and 174 ppm Ag. This sampling was completed in 2007 by Buster Hunsaker, P.Geo, who is a "qualified person" as that term is defined under National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed the technical information in this news release.

Majuba Hill is the site of numerous past producing mines, with historic production reported of 12% Cu (Mason Valley Copper, 1918) and silver grades up to 40 oz/t Ag. Majuba Hill encompasses 2,568 acres of surface and mineral rights that includes patented lode mining claims. The property is easily accessed via 23 miles of well-maintained dirt roads leading from U.S. Interstate 80, and lies 30 miles northwest of Coeur Mining's Rochester silver mine, which contains a NI 43-101 compliant Measured and Indicated Resource of 263.9 million tons grading 0.46 oz/ton Ag and 0.004 oz/ton Au. (The Coeur Technical Report on the Rochester Mine is available on SEDAR).
