MAX Completes Eight Drill Holes At Majuba Hill Silver/copper/gold Project In Nevada

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

VANCOUVER, June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - MAX Resource Corp. (TSX.V: MXR; OTCBB: MXROF; Frankfurt: M1D) has completed eight holes (872 meters) of the Phase III core drilling program at its Majuba Hill silver/copper/gold project in Nevada.  Of these eight holes, the first hole (MM-21) was drilled to a depth of 351 m and tested the southeast extension of near-surface high-grade supergene oxide mineralization identified by Max at the historic Majuba Hill mine during 2011.  The remaining seven holes followed up on the discovery hole (MM-18) at the DeSoto zone 1.4 km to the northwest, where MAX intercepted 29.2 m of 98.3 g/t Ag silver equivalent ("AgEq").  

Core from this program is currently being split and logged and will be submitted to Inspectorate in Reno for assay, with results expected later this summer and drilling to resume thereafter.

MAX believes that Majuba Hill is a newly-defined silver/copper/gold porphyry system that is highly prospective for a bulk-tonnage, open pit deposit.  During drilling in 2011, MAX intercepted high grade copper/silver oxide mineralization near surface over long intervals at the past producing Majuba Hill mine site and the DeSoto zone.   Highlights of this drilling include:

Majuba Hill Mine:
  • 96 m of 39.2 g/t Ag, 0.57% Cu and 0.10 g/t Au (98.3 g/t AgEq) in hole MM-06
  • 50.3 m of 50.8 g/t Ag, 0.31% Cu and 0.31 g/t Au (86.7 g/t AgEq) in MM-07
  • 42.7 m of 37.5 g/t Ag and 0.38% Cu (73.0 g/t AgEq) in hole MM-03

  • 29.2 m of 30.5 g/t Ag and 0.69% Cu (98.3 g/t AgEq) in hole MM-18

Note: Silver equivalent is calculated based on 100% metallurgical recovery and five-year historic metal prices of $24 U.S. for silver, $3 U.S. per pound for Cu and $1,200 US per ounce for gold.

Hole MM-21 was collared approximately 250 m southeast of the middle portal of the past-producing Majuba Hill mine to test a southeast trending ridge of high-grade oxide mineralization that appears to extend a further 500 m to the southeast to the Ball Park area, where hole MM-17 intercepted 42.7 m of 16.8 g/t Ag, 13.7 m of 15.9 g/t Ag and 6.16 m of 51.0 g/t Ag.  A map showing drilling locations from the 2011 exploration programs at Majuba Hill, as well as the location of MM-21, is available on the company's website.

The next seven holes (DSM-01 to DSM-07) were shallow and were drilled to test near-surface mineralization at the DeSoto soil anomaly 1.4 km to the northwest, where hole MM-18 intercepted 29.2 m of 30.5 g/t Ag and 0.69% Cu (98.3 g/t AgEq) in the fall of 2011.   The high grade DeSoto soil anomaly was defined by soil sampling and measures approximately 2 km long by 1 km wide, with values as high as 1.53% Cu and 209 g/t Ag in soils. 

Maps showing the results of soil sampling and drilling completed to date at Majuba Hill are available on our web site at

Majuba Hill is the site of numerous past producing mines, with historic production reported of 12% copper ( Mason Valley Copper, 1918) and silver grades up to 40 oz/t Ag.  The Majuba Hill project encompasses 3,128 acres of surface and mineral rights that includes patented lode mining claims.  The property is easily accessed via 23 miles of well-maintained dirt roads leading from U.S. Interstate 80, and lies 30 miles northwest of Coeur d'Alene's Rochester silver mine, which contains a NI 43-101 compliant Measured and Indicated Resource of 263.9 million tons grading 0.46 oz/ton Ag and 0.004 oz/ton Au.  (The Coeur Technical Report on the Rochester Mine is available on SEDAR).
