Max Resource Receives a Record Nineteen Mining Concession Contracts for Colombia in 2021
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 12, 2022) - MAX RESOURCE CORP. (TSXV: MXR) (OTC Pink: MXROF) (FSE: M1D2) ("Max" or the "Company") is pleased to report that it has been granted 15 additional Mining Concession Contracts ("Concessions") for a total of 19 in 2021, all located along the CESAR North 90-kilometre-long copper-silver belt, within its wholly-owned CESAR project, Northeastern Colombia (refer to Figures 1 and 3).
"The nineteen 'Mining Concession Contracts' are more than any other company received in Colombia for 2021, a significant milestone for Max, forging the way for drill permitting for both the URU and ANM drill targets," commented Max CEO, Brett Matich.
"URU is to be the first significant drilling event on this previously unrecognized copper-silver belt, since the discovery of Cerrejón, the largest coal mine in South America and the reasons for much of the critical infrastructure in the CESAR basin," he continued.
"Located arguably in Colombia's most prolific mining district, Max's 2022 exploration and drilling programs are focused on unlocking the true district-scale potential of its CESAR copper-silver project," he concluded.
Mining Concession Contracts
- The 19 Concessions cover 186-km², the largest area for copper in the CESAR basin
- Collectively, the 19 Concessions extend for over 45-km of the CESAR North 90-km long belt
- Additional Concessions are pending
2022 Drill Program
- LiDAR 290-km² survey to assist drill design and exploration at URU
- Delineate the 5 URU drill targets located along 15-km of strike
- Conduct environmental baseline survey and drill permitting
- Commence the first drill campaign targeting copper-silver deposits in the CESAR basin
- Regional exploration of the CESAR North 90-km-long copper-silver belt
- Extend the CONEJO high-grade 3.7-km-long zone with an average of 4.9% copper (2% cutoff)
- Expand the URU 48-km² zone (currently 15-km of strike over vertical elevations of 500m)
- Geophysical surveys

CESAR COPPER-SILVER PROJECT IN COLOMBIA - OVERVIEW
CESAR lies along the copper-silver rich 200-kilometre-long Cesar Basin in northeastern Colombia. This region provides access to major infrastructure (refer to Figure 2) resulting from oil & gas and mining operations, including Cerrejón, the largest coal mine in South America, now held by global miner Glencore.
CESAR North 90-kilometre-long copper-silver belt:
Max discovered AMN in 2020 (previously AM North), collectively spanning over 45-km², highlight values of 34.4% copper and 305 g/t silver. Intervals range 0.5 to 25.0m. Recently granted 15 contagious Concessions.
Max's CONEJO discovery (March 2021) now spans over 3.7-km of strike with average grade of 4.9% copper using 2% cut-off and open in all directions. To date, widths range from 0.5 to 20.0m, with highlight values of 12.5 % copper and 126 g/t silver:
- 12.5% copper + 84 g/t silver over 5.0m by 5.0m
- 10.5% copper + 50 g/t silver over 3.0m by 2.0 m
- 10.4% copper + 95 g/t silver over 5.0m by 5.0m
- 10.2% copper + 62 g/t silver over 5.0m by 5.0m
- 10.0% copper + 80 g/t silver over 5.0m by 5.0m
- 9.9% copper and 50 g/t silver over widths of 2.0m
- 9.3% copper and 126 g/t silver over widths of 2.0m
- The URU discovery (April 2021) is located 30-km south of CONEJO, now expanded to 48-km² and open in all directions. Max identified 5 significant drilling targets over 15-km of strike, widths of 10 to 25-metres over 500m vertical, highlight values of 14.8% copper and 132 g/t silver:
- 14.8% copper and 132 g/t silver outcrop over 1.5m x 0.8m
- 6.5% copper and 6 g/t silver outcrop over widths of 1.0m
- 5.6% copper and 87 g/t silver outcrop over 1.0m by 1.0m
- 4.3% copper and 8 g/t silver outcrop over widths of 10.0m
- 3.9% copper and 7 g/t silver outcrop over widths of 10.0m
- 3.6% copper and 12 g/t silver outcrop over widths of 10.0m
- 3.0% copper and 6 g/t silver outcrop over widths of 10.0m
- 3.0% copper and 37 g/t silver outcrop over widths of 10.0m
- Recently granted four contagious Concessions covering 70-km² of the URU target zone
The SP target is located within the mid portion of the CESAR North 90-km long copper-silver belt, reconnaissance sampling over 25.0m averaged 4.8% copper and 51 g/t silver
