Vancouver B.C., November 17, 2020 – MAX RESOURCE CORP. (“Max” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: MXR; OTC: MXROF; Frankfurt: M1D2) is pleased to report its recently discovered CESAR project in north eastern Colombia has been internationally recognized in a presentation titled “Stratabound/Redbed type Copper-Silver mineralization in the Cesar-Rancheria Basin, NE Colombia and the Kupferschiefer stratabound Copper-Silver deposit”.
The presentation was delivered by leading Kupferschiefer expert, Professor Adam Piestrzyński at the Colombia Gold Symposium in Medellin, Colombia, and may be viewed on the website: www.maxresource.com
Exploration conducted by Max this year, outlined continuous beds with copper-silver mineralization extending along 200-kilometres of the sedimentary basin. The similarities between Kupferschiefer and CESAR presented were: basin characteristics, lithology, mineralogy, deposit parameters, grades and, origin of sulfur. A notable difference is the Kupferschiefer orebody starting at 500-metres below surface, whereas Max’s CESAR copper-silver mineralization starts at surface (refer to Figure 1).
“We are most pleased to have our CESAR copper-silver project presented at this symposium in recognition of this important new mineral discovery in northeastern Colombia,” commented Max CEO, Brett Matich.
“Professor Piestrzyński postulated: The new discovery of sediment hosted copper-silver mineralization at CESAR could lead to the discovery of several major copper-silver occurrences, similar in size and nature to Kupferschiefer in Poland and Germany. Initial exploration by Max maybe just the tip of the iceberg,” he continued.

The presented research presentation was authored by Prof. A. Piestrzyński, who represents University of Science and Technology, Department of Economic Geology (“AGH”), Krakow, Poland and Prof. J. Pieczonka (AGH). P. Lutynski Head Geologist of Max also contributed to the paper.
Professors at AGH have a long history of cooperation with KGHM Polska Miedz (“KGHM”), Poland’s largest copper and silver producer. The faculty’s extensive knowledge of Kupferschiefer and on-going involvement with the CESAR project, contributes significantly to project advancement and understanding of the sedimented hosted mineral system of the CESAR project.
Max believes CESAR is analogous to the Kupferschiefer. Those deposits are Europe’s largest copper source, which produced 3MT grading 1.49% copper and 48.6 g/t silver in 2018 from a mineralized zone of 0.5 to 5.5-metre thickness.

In addition, the Kupferschiefer deposits of Poland, also yielded 40Mozs of silver in 2019, almost twice the production of the world’s second largest silver mine (World Silver Survey 2020).
Max cautions investors that the presence of copper-silver mineralization at Kupferschiefer is not necessarily indicative of similar mineralization at CESAR.

The CESAR project spans an area ~500sq. km in north eastern Colombia and consists of three stratabound zones: AM North, AM South and CESAR South, forming a major part of a 200-km long sediment-hosted copper-silver belt. The CESAR region enjoys major infrastructure; mining operations of Cerrejon, the largest coal mine in Latin America, jointly owned by global miners BHP Billiton, XStrata and Anglo American (refer to Figure 2).
Important highlights and exploration activity on multiple fronts:
RT GOLD PROPERTY – PERU
Max also holds the RT Gold property in Peru, which consists of two contiguous mineral concessions covering 1,983 hectare and sited along the Condor mountain chain of northern Peru, within the Cajamarca Metallogenic belt, 760-km NW of Lima in the District of Tabaconas. Max has rights to acquire a 100% interest by making annual payments of US$300,000 over four years and an additional US $3,000,000 payment on or before the fifth anniversary. The Vendors will retain a 2.5% NSR on the property.

Two distinct mineralized systems occur within the RT Gold property: the Cerro Zone, a bulk tonnage gold-bearing porphyry, and 3-km to the NW, the Tablon Zone, a gold-bearing massive sulfide zone. The last field exploration was conducted almost a decade ago.
The Cerro Zone hosts several known mineralized zones (Peak, West, Breccia and Cathedral) with anomalous concentrations of gold in rock and soils:
The Tablon Zone is located 3-km NW from the Cerro Zone and hosts numerous gold-bearing massive to semi-massive sulphide bodies over a 150-metre by 450-metre area, within a larger 1.0-km by 1.5-km area of anomalous gold. A total of 33 holes were diamond drilled in 2001 at Tablon with highlight intersections of:

The Max technical team is currently reviewing and digitizing proprietary data for subsequent interpretation for target generation. A program of field verification by the Max in-country team: mapping, surveying and sampling is scheduled to follow. Concurrent with the verification program, the Company will initiate drill permitting.
ABOUT MAX RESOURCE CORP.
With its successful exploration and management team, Max Resource Corp. is advancing both its stratabound Kupferschiefer type CESAR copper-silver project in Colombia and its newly acquired RT Gold, gold porphyry and massive sulfide project in Peru. Both projects have potential for the discovery of large-scale mineral deposits attractive to major partners.
