Wed Sep 22, 2010 Max completes soil sampling at Diamond Peak gold/silver/zinc property in Nevada; drill permit granted
MAX Resource Corp. (TSX.V: MXR; OTCBB: MXROF; Frankfurt: M1D) is pleased to announce that is has completed an extensive soil sampling program on its 100% owned Diamond Peak gold/silver/zinc project in Nevada and has been granted a permit by the Bureau of Land Management for a core drilling program to be conducted in November. A total of 375 soil samples were collected and assay results are pending.
The Diamond Peak Property is located at the southern end of the prolific Carlin Trend of Nevada, which contains numerous gold deposits. The property now comprises 58 claims located 32 miles north of the town or Eureka, Nevada and the Archimedes gold deposit owned by Barrick Gold. Strong surface mineralization occurs in a 2 mile long band of silicified and intensely clay altered rocks which is 200 to 300 feet wide. The hanging wall side of this zone is a north striking normal fault, called the West Fault.
MAX's drill program will follow up on:
- an outcrop sampled by MK Gold that contained 3.7 ounces of silver per ton, which has potential to host a Carbon Replacement Deposit ("CRD") and was never followed up on;
- the 11.6% zinc zone intercepted within 60 feet of surface by MK Gold in 1999;
- a zone of mineralization which contains anomalous zinc, lead, and silver; and
- extensive gold targets on the property and new claims acquired to the east that are being defined by the recent soil sampling program.
