Tue Jun 22, 2010 MAX drills 27.4 meters of 0.467 g/t gold and 3 meters of 1.79 g/t gold at Table Top, Nevada; deeper drilling planned
MAX Resource Corp. (TSX.V: MXR; OTCBB: MXROF; Frankfurt: M1D) has received the assays from its recent diamond drill program at the Table Top gold project near Winnemucca, Nevada. A total of 15 holes were drilled for a total of 660 meters (2,156 feet). Of these holes, ten intersected the mineralized structure and contained significant gold mineralization. The zone of mineralization continues for the entire length of the structure and is open to the northeast and southwest. Gold mineralization also appears to increase in value as deeper zones are intersected.
In addition to the 15 holes completed at Table Top, three trenches were dug and sampled near the original drill hole reported by Gold Fields Mining Company that contained 50 feet of 0.027 opt Au. The current core holes were drilled to be perpendicular to the strike of the mineralized zone and across mineralization which is hosted in a silicified tectonic breccia.
All significant gold assays are listed below:
All mineralized core from this drill program was split and submitted for assay to Inspectorate America Corp, an ISO certified Laboratory in Reno, Nevada.
The drill results at Table Top indicate that MAX may have found a potential mineralized feeder similar to a Carlin Type gold system. Multi-element geochemical values of arsenic, antimony and mercury are all extremely elevated with respect to background; numerous 1.5 m intercepts exceed 100 ppm arsenic and antimony, with thallium values in excess of 10 ppm. All of these elevated values are directly associated with elevated (in excess of 100 ppb and as high as 2,562 ppb) gold values. Silver, tellurium, selenium and base metal values are all low. Geologic interpretation indicates the zone is a 20 meter to 30 meter wide, northeast striking and southeast dipping structural zone. Gold and associated trace element mineralization is associated in and surrounding a silicified breccia (jasperoid). Low grade gold mineralization associated with high grade trace elements is often found to occur in Carlin style gold feeder systems, as have lamprophyre dikes that have also been identified in this zone. Lamprophyres are often found in Carlin systems and are indicative of deep seated structures. Continued evaluation of the drilling data is underway; additional drilling will target deeper mineralization where high grade gold deposits have been found in the recent past at Carlin systems (such as Meikle and Deep Star). Max intends to test this theory during a phase 2 drill program this summer that will be designed to test these deep targets.
A map showing the location of the trenches and drill holes completed at Table Top will be available soon on our web site at www.maxresource.com.
The Table Top gold project consists of approximately 157 claims totaling 3,142 hectares located near the town of Winnemucca in Humboldt County, Nevada and is only one half hour by gravel road north of town. Table Top is located along the King 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.
