    Max Resource Commences Airborne Geophysical Survey at CESAR

    Vancouver B.C., August 31, 2023 – MAX RESOURCE CORP. (“Max” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: MAX; OTC: MXROF; Frankfurt: M1D2) is pleased to report that it has commenced a high-resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric survey over the entire AM District, the northern most area of its 100% owned Cesar Copper-Silver Project located in Northeastern Colombia.

    The fixed-wing 4,000-line-km survey will collect data along 125m spaced flight lines at a nominal height of 100m. Flight lines are oriented east-west and covering more than 400 km2 of highly prospective ground within the Cesar Project (refer to Figure 1). Survey results will be used to assist in developing and refining drill targets by mapping the lithologies and the geological structures that control mineralization. Stratiform copper-silver mineralization at AM is observed where geological faults intersect sedimentary units that are permeable and contain organic material.

    “This is the first extensive high-resolution airborne survey conducted in the Cesar basin and it will be an important dataset as we continue to advance the Cesar Copper-Silver Project. The data will allow the Company to pinpoint areas with the greatest potential for significant accumulation of copper silver minerals by identifying where the permissive lithologies have had the greatest amount of structural preparation,” commented Max VP Exploration, Bruce Counts. 

    “Max will review the data as it is collected and complete preliminary interpretations that can be followed-up in the field,” he concluded.

    Background

    The Cesar Copper Silver Project comprises of three districts: AM, Conejo and URU. Collectively the three contiguous districts stretch over 90-km in NNE/SSW direction (refer to Figure 2).

    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 twenty mining concessions collectively span over 188-km².

    In 2022, Max executed a 2-year co-operation agreement with Endeavour Silver Corp. (TSX: EDR, NYSE: EXK), which assists to expand its 100% owned landholdings, Endeavour will hold an underlying 0.5% NSR.

    AM District

    Starting in the far north of the Jurassic basin, classic stacked red bed outcrops with extensive lateral continuity have been rock sampled over many kilometres within the AM District. Highlight values of 34.4% copper and 305 g/t silver have been documented in the sedimentary red bed sequences. The Company confirmed that stratiform mineralization continues at depth with two scout drill holes completed earlier this year (Max News Release dated April 4, 2023). In addition, Colombian field crews continue to discover and sample new mineralized outcrops including at the recently identified AM-7 target (Max News Release dated May 25, 2023 and Max News Release dated June 22, 2023).

    Conejo District

    Midway south, the Conejo District is the most recent to be recognized and is characterized by structurally controlled mineralization hosted in intermediate and felsic volcanic rocks. Numerous mineralized outcrops have been discovered over a distance of 3.7-km at the primary target in the district with surface samples averaging 4.9% copper (2% cut-off). No drilling has been conducted at Conejo, but it has emerged as an area of focus for the Company.

    URU District

    Mineralization within the URU District is hosted in intermediate volcanic rocks and is structurally controlled, similar to deposits in the Central African Copper Belt. At URU-C, a 9.0m of 7.0% copper and 115 g/t silver surface discovery was confirmed at depth by drill hole URU-12, which intersected 10.6m of 3.4% copper and 48 g/t silver. At the URU-CE target, 750m to the east, 19.0m of 1.3% copper discovered in outcrop was confirmed by drill hole URU-9, which intersected a broad zone of copper oxide returning 33.0m of 0.3% copper from 4.0m, including 16.5m of 0.5% copper (Max News Release date January 24, 2023).

    CESAR Target Evaluation

    Max has identified and is evaluating 21 targets along the Cesar 90-km-long belt for potential drill testing. The Company is focused on expanding, refining, and prioritizing these targets in preparation for a drill program. Initial efforts have been concentrated on those targets with the greatest size potential with work that includes the following field activities:

    Regional Exploration

    Max has demonstrated that the Cesar basin is fertile for copper-silver mineralization over a large area; however, only a fraction of the basin has been explored. As a result, Max has dedicated on of its geological teams to regional exploration with the goal of discovering additional copper-silver prospects over 1,000 sq-km.

    About Max Resource Corp.

    Max Resource Corp. (TSXV: MAX) is a mineral exploration company advancing the newly discovered district-scale Cesar copper-silver project. The wholly owned Cesar project sits along the Colombian portion of the world’s largest producing copper belt (Andean belt), with world class infrastructure and the presence of global majors (Glencore and Chevron).

    In addition, Max controls the RT Gold project (100% earn-in) in Peru, encompassing a bulk tonnage primary gold porphyry zone, and 3-km to the NW, a gold bearing massive sulphide zone. Historic drilling in 2001, returned values ranging 3.1 to 118.1 g/t gold over core lengths ranging from 2.2 to 36.0-metres.

    Max is proactive, with the corporate goal of transitioning the Cesar basin towards the mining of copper, the key metal for Colombia’s transition to clean energy. The safety of our people and the communities where we operate is most important. We conduct exploration in a manner which supports protection of ecosystems through responsible environmental stewardship.
