VANCOUVER, Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ - MAX Resource Corp. (TSXV: MXR) (OTCBB: MXROF) (FSE: M1D) has secured a drill rig and has scheduled to resume drilling in the first week of March on the Company's wholly owned Table Top gold project in Humboldt County, Nevada. Table Top is located immediately south of the Sandman gold project, one of the Nevada properties included in the recent proposal by Newmont Mining Corp. to acquire Fronteer Gold Inc.
Drilling by MAX in 2010 intersected significant gold mineralization at Table Top, confirming that the mineralization not only extends to depth, but also increases in width and grade. Results included an intercept of 12.1 m of 0.91 g/t gold, inclusive of 9.1 m of 1.09 g/t Au. The mineralization appears similar to that encountered around the Goldstrike Betze-Post mine operated by Barrick on the Carlin Trend.
The drilling to be conducted at Table Top will target the mineralized system down dip and along strike, exploring for higher grade gold in what appears to be a Carlin-style feeder system.
Newmont currently has a joint venture interest in Fronteer's Sandman project, a high-grade, vein-related gold system on Nevada's King River Rift, a regional geologic feature that appears to control mineralization in the area and which hosts multiple high-grade gold systems. MAX's Table Top property is immediately south of Sandman on this gold trend, which also features AMAX's Sleeper Canyon Mine (2.5 Moz Au produced), located 25 miles to the north, and the Goldbanks gold occurrence located 37 miles to the south. A map of the King River Rift can viewed on our web site at www.maxresource.com.
The Table Top gold project consists of 48 claims (960 acres) located 10 miles west of the town of Winnemucca in Humboldt County, Nevada, just off of Interstate 80.
