Mon Apr 19, 2010 MAX intersects mineralized zone of silicified breccia during drilling at Table Top gold project in Nevada.
MAX Resource Corp. (TSX.V: MXR; OTCBB: MXROF; Frankfurt: M1D) is pleased to announce the intersection of silicified breccia near surface in the second and third drill holes during core drilling currently underway at the Company's wholly-owned Table Top gold project in Nevada. Drill hole MT2 was drilled at a 45 degree angle next to the original vertical drill hole completed by Goldfields during the 1980's that intersected 55 feet of 0.84 g/t Au (0.027 opt). This hole, as well as hole MT3 drilled at a 60 degree angle at the same location, confirm the existence of the historic mineralized zone reported by Goldfields and support our theory that subsequent drilling by Goldfields drilled down the dip of the beds and thus missed the main mineralized zone. The drill core samples are being sent for assay to Inspectorate America Corp in Reno, Nevada. Drilling is continuing.
Prior to drilling, a trench was dug that exposed a silicified brecciated zone at surface, with assay results showing anomalous gold, arsenic, antimony and mercury. Significant gold results from this trenching are reported in the following table:
Channel Distance (feet)
Assay (g/t Au)
51 52 53 54 56
0-5 5-10 10-15 15-20 25-30
0.92 0.42 0.33 0.56 0.1
The Table Top property is comprised of 171 claims (3,420 acres) located 10 miles west of the town of Winnemucca, Nevada, just off of Interstate 80.
Table Top is located along the Kings River Rift, a regional geologic feature that appears to control mineralization in the area and which hosts multiple high-grade vein-related gold systems. Along this trend is AMAX's Sleeper Canyon Mine (2.5 MM oz Au produced), located 25 miles to the north, the Goldbanks gold occurrence located 37 miles to the south, and the Sandman gold deposits (a joint venture between Newmont Mining Corporation and Fronteer Development Group Inc.) immediately to the north, where drilling by Newmont continues to highlight the high-grade nature of near-surface gold mineralization. More information on Table Top is available on our web site at www.maxresource.com.
