Max Samples 155g/t Gold over 0.4m at North Choco

Vancouver B.C., May 23, 2019 – MAX RESOURCE CORP. (“Max” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: MXR; OTC: MXROF; Frankfurt: M1D1) is pleased to report the first assays from its 10-week exploration program now underway at the North Choco copper gold project, located 80 km SW of Medellin, Colombia. Max is acquiring the North Choco Property through the planned acquisition of Andagueda Mining Pty. Ltd. (see our news release of May 8, 2019). Assay highlights include:

Seven of 23 chip samples returned grades ranging from 155.27g/t gold to 2.94g/t gold;
Three of the 7 samples returned values of >10,000 ppm copper, in excess of the upper detection limit, and will need to be reanalyzed to determine the final grade;
The chip samples were taken over various widths from 4 locations within a 400 metre by 700 metre exploration area centred on the historic gold mines;
Max is three weeks into the 10-week North Choco exploration program and further results will be released after receipt and interpretation.
“We are very pleased with this first round of assays from our intensive exploration campaign. The assay results are delivering significant grades of gold and we expect the copper re-assay results very soon,” Max CEO, Brett Matich, stated. “Our strategy is to expand our exploration efforts in all directions within the 500 sq. km land package,” he continued.

Details for the seven samples can be found in the accompanying table.


North Choco Gold-Copper and Choco Gold-Platinum

North Choco Gold-Copper (500 sq. km) is located 80 km SW of Medellin and is contiguous to properties held by AngloGold Ashanti (NYSE: AU) and Continental Gold (TSX: CNL) and includes rights to exploration and exploitation over a 72.5 sq. km Mining Area.

North Choco is 47 km SW of AngloGold’s 2005 Nuevo Chaquiro copper porphyry discovery, hosting an Inferred Resource of 604Mt at 0.65% copper and 0.32g/t gold with a contained metal content of 4Mt of copper and 6Moz of gold. This is one of five known porphyry centres within a 15 sq. km area.

Max cautions investors mineralization on the Nuevo Chaquiro property is not necessarily indicative of similar mineralization on North Choco. The Nuevo Chaquiro Resource is disclosed in the AngloGold presentation “Discovery and Geology of the Nuevo Chaquiro Cu-Au (Ag-Mo) Porphyry Deposit”.

AngloGold Ashanti examined the North Choco area for porphyry copper in 2005, locating porphyry copper prospects and anomalies. AngloGold was unable to follow up and the area has sat idle until Andagueda Mining completed its historic agreement earlier this year.

Max’s Choco Gold-Platinum Property (2.140 sq. km) is located adjacent to and SW of North Choco and covers or is adjacent to historic production of 1.5Mozs gold and 1.0Mozs platinum. Free gold was observed from hard-rock conglomerates taken from surface in February of 2019. A follow up Long Wave InfraRed (LWIR) survey identified multiple conglomerate zones spread over a 1,000 sq. km area. Test work is continuing on accessing the fine gold within the conglomerates.

All rock chip samples were shipped from site and delivered by Company personnel to the SGS Colombia S.A.S laboratory in Medellin, Colombia, an ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited facility.

All rock samples were analyzed utilizing SGS's ICM40B procedure, a four-acid digestion of a one half-gram sample with an ICP finish, with a copper upper limit of 10000 ppm (1%). All rock samples were also analyzed utilizing SGS’s FAG303 procedure, a 30-gram gold fire assay with a gravimetric finish. Over limit copper values are subsequently analyzed utilizing GO ICP13B AES package with an upper limit of 30% copper. Certified blank samples from CDN Resource Laboratories Ltd. were inserted into the sample stream at regular intervals. No irregularities were noted.
