Maxy Gold Corp.: Results Confirm New Copper Discovery on the LUCHUN Gold Project, Yunnan Province, China

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 20, 2005) - MAXY GOLD CORP. ("Maxy") (TSX VENTURE:MXD) is pleased to announce that rock sample results confirm the presence of significant copper mineralization on its Niujaozai exploration permit within the Luchun Gold joint venture area in southern Yunnan Province, China. As announced August 10, 2005, the Niujaozai was found to host an extensive mineralized zone running for 3km in a northwest-southeast direction and approximately 1 km wide. The anomaly is open to the south-southeast.

32 representative rock samples (see Table 1) were collected during preliminary reconnaissance work on 2 sections, 1km apart covering part of the soil anomaly. Most samples came back at least anomalous. The samples are representative of the overall alteration and mineralization system, and average a little less than 0.2% copper (Cu) and 0.2 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) with some values reaching 0.65% Cu and 0.5g/t Au in representative chip samples. One selected sample returned 3.1% Cu and 1.0g/t Au. The sampling confirms the kilometric extent of the mineralization as indicated by the soil survey.


As a result of the Copper mineralization discovery new staking has enlarged the Niujaozai property a further 30km2 to 80km2. The property is located in Yuanyang County, Honghe Prefecture, 300km south of Kunming. Access is excellent by a surfaced all weather road to the town of Niujiaozai located in the centre of the claim group.


The area is underlain by gneiss with very minor gabbro. The gneiss consists of banded biotite-quartz-feldspar gneiss and interlayered granite gneiss. Minor leucogneiss in the eastern part of the project area hosts narrow bands of marble. The foliated gneiss generally dips 10-30 degrees to the north except in some mineralized zones were they strike roughly 240/50-80NW. Dark medium grained undeformed gabbro boulders were noted in several areas although no outcrop of gabbro was found. Some weathered monzonite was identified with no post-deformational intermediate intrusive rocks located.


The mineralized zone consists of a large area of strong red biotite-quartz-(k feldspar?) alteration localized within the banded biotite gneiss. This rock hosts from trace to 3% combined disseminated pyrite, pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite. The altered rock is commonly cut by numerous thin subparallel veinlets of chalcopyrite. These inlets are marked by haloes of chlorite and a white alteration (albite) extending several mm beyond the veinlets. Quartz veins up to 60cm wide with abundant coarse grained pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite are present in several areas. Boulders of strong silica-(kspar?)-pyrite(10-30%)-chalcopyrite were found within the altered and mineralized areas and both float and outcrop of massive pyrrhotite (70%)-chlorite(10%)-quartz(15%)-chalcopyrite (5%) up to 20cm wide were found in the eastern part of the project area. The massive sulphide zones and minor quartz-sulphide veins strike 100-110 degrees, while the narrow fracture fillings of chalcopyrite strike 10-30 and dip steeply north to subvertical.

The mineralized zone is preferentially hosted by the banded biotite-quartz-feldspar gneiss and the granite gneiss tends to lack Cu and be marked by weak to strong limonite (after pyrite?). Strong Cu mineralization is locally hosted in the granite gneiss as veins and in areas were the granite gneiss occurs as smaller lenses within biotite gneiss.


Maxy will systematically evaluate the anomaly by completing an extensive exploration program including:

- Detailed geochemical survey of the property (200 meters line spacing)

- Detailed geological mapping of the property (200 meters line spacing)

- Complete a magnetic and induced polarization (IP) geophysical survey over the property (200 meter line spacing)

- Trenching of best anomalies

- Stream sediment survey covering a 5km radius

This work should help in the understanding of the mineralization and alteration patterns and will be complemented by detailed chip sampling and petrographic studies. The detailed work should also help to define areas of high grade and /or oxide mineralization potential.

There is no obvious limit yet established to this large and well developed mineralized area.


The program was supervised by Dr. Xianda Wang (Phd, University of Salzburg Austria), general manager of the Luchun joint Venture Andre Gauthier, president of Maxy, is the qualified person under National Instrument 43-101 who reviewed the data.

The samples were shipped, prepared and analyzed to ALS Chemex in Vancouver. ALS Chemex is an ISO 9002 registered laboratory and is preparing ISO 17025 certification.


The Luchun Gold Joint Venture consists of 21 exploration permits, including the Niubo-Dichu property and the Niukong property where Maxy is pursuing an aggressive exploration program including drilling, geophysical survey and underground mapping and sampling on those three properties as well as completing a preliminary investigation of 15 permits.
