MAX Begins Exploration At Historic Majuba Hill Copper/Gold/Silver Property In Nevada; Excavation Underway For April Drill Program

TSX-V Symbol: MXR                   OTC BB Symbol: MXROF Frankfurt: M1D

VANCOUVER, March 30 /PRNewswire/ - MAX Resource Corp. (TSXV: MXR) (OTCBB: MXROF) (Frankfurt: M1D) has begun exploration at its newly acquired Majuba Hill Copper/Gold/Silver property in Pershing County, Nevada (see our news release of March 4, 2011).  Excavation of drill sites has begun, with core drilling scheduled to begin in April 2011 following completion of drilling currently underway at MAX's nearby Table Top gold project.

Majuba Hill is the site of a number of past producing high-grade copper, gold and silver mines.  Our initial exploration program is designed to expand and define the current zones of copper/silver mineralization as well as explore new areas of the property where significant gold and silver values have been reported but not yet followed up.

Majuba Hill encompasses 2,313 acres of surface and mineral rights consisting of 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 located halfway between the Florida Canyon Mine (Jipangju) and the Hycroft Mine (Allied Nevada Corporation) within the Western Nevada Gold Belt and is easily accessed via 23 miles of well-maintained dirt roads leading from U.S. Interstate 80.

Initial Exploration Targets - Myler and Last Chance

Initial drilling at Majuba Hill will explore two areas, the Myler Target Area and the Last Chance Mine.

Since 1907, production and exploration at Majuba Hill has produced outstanding copper results with associated silver and gold.  Published production data show that prior to 1947 Mason Valley Mines Co. and Greenan-Kerr produced 4,000 tons @ 12 % Cu and slightly less than 23,000 tons @ 4% Cu respectively in the Myler Target Area.   During reverse-circulation drilling at the Myler Target area in 2007-2008, Minterra Exploration reported a number of high-grade drill intercepts, such as 145 ft @ 1.85 opt Ag and 0.49% Cu, inclusive of 15 feet @ 5.01 opt Ag (hole MH-6) and 100 ft @ 0.99 opt Ag, inclusive of 15 feet @ 4.00 opt Ag (hole MH-5).

The Last Chance Mine was developed along a fault with a trend similar to the Majuba Fault. Last Chance operated intermittently and produced silver (up to 40 opt Ag), lead (up to 15%), and gold (up to 0.10 opt Au) from an 830 foot tunnel and a 117 foot deep shaft. No drilling or exploration appears to have ever been completed down dip or along the strike of the fault at Last Chance.

Subsequent exploration at Majuba Hill will be expanded to include the Line Drive Adit and Section 35 areas. Mine Finders and Minterra conducted initial soil and rock sampling at both the Line Drive Adit and Section 35 that indicates that they are highly prospective for gold as well as copper and silver, with rock chip samples reported as high as 10 g/t Au and 981 g/t Ag.
