    EBAY Palladium-Platinum Project

    The EBAY Palladium Project, located 30-km SE of Matagami in the Abitibi Region of Quebec, Canada, is underlain by the Archean Bell River Complex, a layered mafic intrusion measuring 65-km by 15-km and 5-km thick.

    Highlight exploration between 2000 to 2008: 4.9 g/t palladium-platinum from a 4 to 5-metre wide zone; 3 g/t palladium + 1.4 g/t platinum + 0.12 rhodium in 2005; 2.5 g/t palladium-platinum from a newly discovered 500m long zone in 2006; all consisting of blast pit grab sampling. The Company cautions investors that grab samples are selected samples and are not necessarily representative of mineralization.

    EBAY drilling in 2006 intersected 1.90 g/t palladium-platinum over 3.0m from 80.5m to 83.5m. Further drilling discovered a new zone comprising 600m of strike, 120m deep, 6.7m to 31.1m wide, open in all directions, with highlight values of 2.52 g/t palladium-platinum. Subsequent aero-magnetic survey extended the target zone to 4.8-km of strike (news release March 25, 2020).

    Max is planning an exploration and drilling program.

    CESAR Copper-Silver Project

    Wholly-owned CESAR project in north east Colombia lies within Jurassic sediments and volcaniclastics that extend the length of northern South America. These Jurassic rocks also host significant stratabound copper-silver mineralization in both Ecuador and Peru. CESAR lies along a historic 120-km copper-silver belt within a major oil-gas and coal mining district. The region has excellent infrastructure, shipping ports, airports, townships, railways and roadways.

    Early success includes:

    • The AM North discovery consisting of a 1.8-km horizon open along strike, down and up dip; values of 24.8% copper + 230 g/t silver over a 4 metre by 1metre rock chip panel and 1.8-km along strike to the east, returned 10.4% copper + 88 g/t silver over 1metre interval;
    • The AM South discovery, located 40-km SSW along the same mineralized trend, consists of open-ended mineralized horizons totaling over 5-km of strike, returned rock chip highlight values of 5.4% copper and 63 g/t silver from 0.1 to 25 metre intervals;
    • The University of Science and Technology (“AGH”), Krakow, Poland has now commenced a mineralogy and geochemical studies on CESAR.  AGH will utilize extensive knowledge from KGHM’s world renowned Kupferschiefer sediment-hosted copper-silver deposits in Poland, on the academic study of CESAR.
    • Max intends to release an exploration update shortly.
