Max Resource Reports 2.2% Copper and 12g/t Silver Over 15-metre Open-Ended, Composite Grab at the CESAR Project, Colombia
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 20, 2020) - MAX RESOURCE CORP. (TSXV: MXR) (OTC: MXROF) (FSE: M1D2) ("Max" or the "Company") is pleased to report an open-ended 15-metre composite grab interval grading 2.2% copper and 12 g/t silver from Outcrop-7, within the Company's 100% owned stratabound CESAR copper-silver project, located 420 km north of Bogota, Colombia. The Company cautions investors that grab samples are selected samples and are not necessarily representative of mineralization hosted on the property (refer to figure below).
The 15-metre interval oblique to stratigraphy continues under soil cover. In addition, Outcrop-2 chip sampling returned 4.2% copper and 15 g/t silver open-ended over 0.8-metre. The AM Horizon and Outcrop Zone are coupled as the "AM Zone" extending to 5 km on strike, open in all directions with indications of significant lateral continuity. The Company is awaiting assay results from a newly discovered zone, on trend, 35 km north of the "AM Zone".
Highlight rock chip intervals and values from the "AM Zone" (Table 1):
• 5.4% copper and 15 g/t silver over 1.5m; 3.4% copper and 63 g/t silver over 1.0m;
• 4.4% copper and 33 g/t silver over 0.6m; 2.7% copper and 33 g/t silver over 0.5m;
• 4.3% copper and 26 g/t silver over 3.0m x 3.0m; 2.4% copper and 11 g/t silver over 3.0m x 3.0m;
• 4.2%% copper and 26 g/t silver over 0.8m; 2.1% copper and 9 g/t silver over 6.0m.
"The AM Zone has the makings of a large high-grade copper and silver discovery, "commented Brett Matich, CEO of Max. "We look forward to the assay results from the new zone located 35 km north of the AM Zone."

The Phase II program is conducting follow-up on grab samples with highlight grades of 4.7% copper and 116 g/t silver. The Company cautions investors that grab samples are selected samples and are not necessarily representative of mineralization hosted on the property.
The 100% owned CESAR Project is located in North East Colombia within Jurassic sediments and volcaniclastics that run through the length of Northern South America, hosting significant stratabound copper-silver mineralization in Ecuador and Peru. CESAR is in a region with significant infrastructure including major oil-gas and coal operations, shipping ports, townships, railways and roadways.

Max reported concentrates from sample 001 grading 341 g/t gold and 111 g/t platinum and from sample 002 grading 222 g/t gold and 114 g/t platinum (refer to news release April 16, 2019).
Max is currently in discussions with interested parties with the view of unlocking value for shareholders.
North Choco Gold and Copper Project
North Choco consists of wholly-owned mineral applications (150 sq. km), located approximately 80 km SW of Medellin, Colombia. The NW Gold-Copper Discovery (refer to October 29, 2019 news release) outcrop reported 1 meter of 49.8 g/t gold and 4.3% copper, which continues under cover in both directions. Future work will focus on mapping and sampling along strike to extend the zone and on locating additional parallel zones. Max is assessing joint venture opportunities.
The rock chip samples were shipped to ALS Lab's sample preparation facility in Medellin, Columbia. Sample pulps are sent to Lima, Peru for analysis. All samples were analyzed using ALS procedure ME-MS41, a four-acid digestion with ICP finished. Over limit copper and silver were determined by ALS procedure OG-62, a four-acid digestion with an AAS finish. ALS Labs is independent from Max. Max is not aware of any other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data referred to herein.
