Max Resource is Awarded Eleven Additional Mining Concession Contracts to Now Cover 99-km² for URU, CESAR Project in NE Colombia
Vancouver B.C., June 27, 2022 – MAX RESOURCE CORP. (“Max” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: MAX; OTC: MXROF; Frankfurt: M1D2) is pleased to report it has been awarded eleven additional Mining Concession Contracts (“Concessions”) for the 20-kilometre-long URU zone, located along the southern portion of the CESAR North 90-kilometre-long copper-silver belt, within its wholly-owned CESAR project, Northeastern Colombia.
The Concessions at URU now cover 99-km² and Max’s CESAR project Concessions now collectively total an aggregate of over 212-km².
Each Concession has an initial term of 30-years and extension for a further 30-years for a total duration of 60-years.
“The 212-km² of Mining Concession Contracts are wholly-owned and provide secure tenure for development of Max’s CESAR project for the years ahead. This achievement will add additional targets for Max’s first drill program at URU, the most significant event in the Cesar basin since the discovery of Cerrejón, the largest coal mine in South America and the basis for much of the critical infrastructure in the Cesar basin,” commented Max CEO, Brett Matich.
"Max Resource’s Environmental Survey has been accepted by the National Mining Agency of Colombia and approval to drill is expected in the coming weeks. Max is currently conducting field work and ground geophysical surveys to expand the URU drilling target area. Max’s exploration focus aligns directly with Colombia’s National Mining Agency strategy of transitioning from fossil fuels to copper exploration and future development of the Cesar basin. Furthermore, Max is fully funded with over $21 million in the treasury,” he concluded.

Cesar Copper Silver Project
CESAR lies along the copper-silver rich 200-kilometre-long Cesar Basin in Northeastern Colombia. This region provides access to major infrastructure resulting from oil & gas and mining operations, including Cerrejón, the largest coal mine in South America, held by global miner Glencore. Max’s mining concessions collectively expanse over 212-km².
Max is proactive in the goal of moving the Cesar basin towards the mining of copper, the key metal for the Colombia’s transition to clean energy.
Recently a co-operation agreement was executed with Endeavour Silver Corp. (TSX: EDR, NYSE: EXK), which assists Max to significantly expand its 100% owned landholdings at CESAR, Endeavour will hold underlying 0.5% NSR.
Max is focusing on three major copper-silver zones individually located along the CESAR 90-kilometre-long belt, with the objective of expanding the zones and defining drill targets:
- The 32-km long AM zone with highlight values of 34.4% copper and 305 g/t silver
- Conejo zone, averages 4.9% copper (2% cut-off) over 3.7-km
- 20-km long URU zone returned 7.0m @ 8.5% copper + 143 g/t silver and 16.8m @ 8.3% copper + 146 g/t silver
Geologically, Max interprets the sediment-hosted stratiform copper-silver mineralization in the Cesar basin to be analogous to both the Central African Copper Belt (CACB) to the south and the Kupferschiefer deposits in Poland to the north. Almost 50% of the copper known to exist in sediment-hosted deposits is contained in the CACB, including Ivanhoe Mines Ltd (TSX: IVN) 95-billion-pound Kamoa-Kakula discovery in the Congo.
Kupferschiefer, the world’s largest silver producer and Europe’s largest copper source, is a mining orebody ranging from 0.5 to 5.5m thick at depths of 500m, grading 1.49% copper and 48.6 g/t silver. The silver yield is almost twice the production of the world’s second largest silver mine.

Max cautions investors that the presence of copper mineralization of the Central African Copper Belt and the Polish Kupferschiefer are not necessarily indicative of similar mineralization at CESAR.
