VANCOUVER, April 12 /PRNewswire/ - MAX Resource Corp. (TSXV: MXR) (OTCBB: MXROF) (Frankfurt: M1D) has completed a six hole core drill program at the company's wholly owned Table Top gold project in Humboldt County, Nevada. Table Top is located 10 miles west of the town of Winnemucca, immediately south of the Sandman gold project, one of the Nevada properties included in the recent acquisition of Fronteer Gold Inc. by Newmont Mining Corp.
Six diamond core holes were drilled at Table Top for a total of 497 metres. Five holes were drilled to the northeast of previous drilling and a sixth was drilled to identify 1+ gram gold intercepts found by surface sampling southwest of last year's drilling and 155 metres from the next nearest drill hole. Drill core is currently being split and assay results are pending.
Table Top is located along the Kings River Rift, a regional geologic feature that appears to control mineralization in the area and which hosts multiple high-grade vein-related gold systems. Along this trend is AMAX's Sleeper Canyon Mine (2.5 MM oz Au produced), located 25 miles to the north, the Goldbanks gold occurrence located 37 miles to the south, and the Sandman gold deposits, now owned by Newmont, immediately to the north.
Majuba Hill Copper/Silver project
At Majuba Hill, excavation of roads and drill sites is underway for a six hole core drill program to begin on patented land in late April. Majuba Hill is the site of a number of past-producing high-grade copper and silver mines. The company's initial exploration program is designed to expand and define the extensive zones of high grade copper/silver mineralization identified during reverse-circulation drilling conducted by Minterra in 2007. Highlights of Minterra's drilling included 145 feet at 1.85 opt and 0.49% Cu, inclusive of 15 feet at 5.01 opt Ag (hole MH-6) and 100 feet at 0.99 opt Ag, inclusive of 15 feet at 4.00 opt Ag (hole MH-5). The mineralized system is open to the north, east and west and to depth. In addition, soil sampling is planned for two areas of copper/silver mineralization identified to the west and to the east of the mineralized zone, where copper samples as high as 7.2% Cu and 3 opt Ag in outcrop have been reported by previous operators and have not yet been fully mapped or explored.
Majuba Hill encompasses 2,313 acres of surface and mineral rights comprising patented and unpatented lode mining claims and private mineral rights. Majuba Hill is 30 miles northwest of Coeur d'Alene's Rochester mine, which has produced 127 million ounces of silver and 1.5 million ounces of gold since 1986. The property is easily accessed via 23 miles of well-maintained dirt roads leading from United States Interstate 80.
