MAX Commences Drill Program At Majuba Hill Copper/silver Project In Nevada

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

VANCOUVER, June 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - MAX Resource Corp. (TSX.V: MXR; OTCBB: MXROF; Frankfurt: M1D) has commenced a planned seven hole core drilling program at its Majuba Hill Copper/Silver project in Pershing County, Nevada.   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 Ag and 0.49% Cu, inclusive of 15 feet at 5.1 opt Ag (hole MH-6) and 100 feet at 0.99 opt Ag, inclusive of 15 feet at 4.0 opt Ag (hole MH-5).   Of 7 holes drilled by Minterra at the Copper Stope target, 6 holes intercepted currently economic grades of copper/silver mineralization.  MAX believes that the seventh hole was drilled in the wrong direction; this is the first hole in the current program and will be drilled to the west at the same location.  The mineralized system is open to the north, east and west and to depth.

The current drill program will deepen those original holes which had been terminated while still in mineralization, a fact which was only determined after receipt of assay results, as well as targeting new mineralized zones that have not previously been drilled.  MAX feels that not only will core drilling provide us with additional information on the geology at Majuba Hill but may also allow for improved sample recovery and more accurate assay results.

Soil sampling has been undertaken at Majuba on 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 3.0 opt Ag in outcrop have been reported by previous operators and have not yet been fully mapped or explored. Copper oxide mineralization has been identified at surface to the west of the current drill program and will be permitted for drilling at a later date.

MAX believes that Majuba Hill is a newly defined large scale intrusive-type porphyry system that is highly prospective for the discovery of new zones of economic copper/silver mineralization. The site of numerous past producing mines, with historic production reported of 12% Cu ( Mason Valley Copper in 1918) and silver grades up to 40 opt Ag, Majuba Hill encompasses 2,568 acres of surface and mineral rights that includes patented lode mining claims.  The property lies 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) and is easily accessed via 23 miles of well-maintained dirt roads leading from U.S. Interstate 80.  For more detailed information on the Majuba Hill copper/silver project, including project maps, please visit our web site at www.maxresource.com.
