The current drill program at Majuba Hill commenced in June 2011 on patented land at the Copper Stope target area, the site of the past producing Majuba Hill mine. The drill program was 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 reported currently economic grades of copper/silver mineralization. The mineralized system is currently open to the north, east and west and to depth.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 include 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.
