VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 27, 2013) - MAX Resource Corp. (News - Market indicators)(OTCBB:MXROF)(FRANKFURT:M1D) has received assay results from additional bulk sampling completed at the East Manhattan Wash ("EMW") gold project in Nevada. This bulk sampling was undertaken to prepare for drilling planned for this fall by following up on sampling conducted in 2009 that recovered 4.9 g/t Au and 1.2 g/t Ag from a 793 pound sample taken at surface within a gold mineralized soil anomaly exposed over a surface area in excess of 1,650 m by 450 m feet in size. Just north of this area, the very small streams all contain free gold that can be recovered by conventional gold panning techniques. Mineralization appears to be free gold in a volcanic lithic welded tuff. During the current program, two 10 kg samples were taken, one from the same area as the 2009 bulk sample and the second from an area approximately 150 meters to the east. The first 10 kg sample returned 1.5 g/t au and the second sample returned 0.87 g/t Au.  

MAX has been advised by the U.S. Forest Service that its drill permit application filed in 2011 should be approved this fall, following which we plan to undertake a 12 hole core drilling program to determine the overall depth and grade of the gold mineralization in the volcanic tuff at EMW. 

Clancy Wendt, VP Exploration of MAX, states, "We have now defined a significant area of gold mineralization that we believe has the potential for a large mineralized system. More important is the fact that the mineralization appears to be free gold within the volcanic tuff which would allow a concentrate to be made on site through crushing and gravity separation, with final processing at toll mills off site. With a large mineralized area now defined at surface, we are anxious to finally be able to drill to determine the overall depth of the mineralization, extend the known mineralization below cover, and determine the overall grade."

Following up the results of the initial bulk sample in 2009, MAX completed three large volume soil sampling grids in May of 2009 at EMW and followed that up with a further sampling program in September, 2010. In total, over 300 samples were taken and returned values ranging from 0.05 ppm to 1.5 ppm (1.5 g/t) Au. While the total mineralized zone now exposed at surface encompasses an area in excess of 1,650 m by 450 m in size, the mineralized area is believed to be much larger but is covered by either overburden or alluvium. The sampling conducted at EMW has enabled MAX to identify structural linear features seen in air photo images along with argillic alteration and silicification that appears to define where strong gold values may be found. Sampling of historic pits dug by earlier prospectors has helped further define the areas of mineralization and to confirm the presence of gold. An updated soil sampling map is now available on our web site at www.maxresource.com.

Sampling taken by other companies that reviewed the property during 2010 and 2011 found values up to 2.4 g/t in outcrop. In addition, streams north and east of the soil anomaly were also sampled looking to define the overall size of the system, with all of the streams containing gold with values up to 0.05 ppm. The wide variation in gold values is explained by the presence of coarse free gold in all samples.

The soil and current samples were analyzed by ALS Laboratory Group (Chemex) in Reno, Nevada. Samples from two of the sample grids taken in the coarse gold area (as seen in the previous bulk sample) were run for gold using a one kilogram split with following cyanide leach to minimize the potential to miss the coarse gold. The other grid (different mineralization style) samples were fire assayed in addition to an ICP (Inductively Coupled Plasma) suite of 41 elements. All sample bags were labeled at the site with a sample specific number, logged on a sample card with sample card tag put in each sample bag and taken directly from the field to ALS Labs. In addition, each site was located using a GPS in UTM with NAD 27.

The EMW property is comprised of 78 claims (1,560 acres) located in the Manhattan Mining District 40 miles north of the town of Tonopah and eight miles south of the Round Mountain Mine (jointly owned by Kinross and Barrick), a conventional open pit operation that has produced more than 12 million ounces of gold to date. For 2012, Kinross Gold reported a proven and probable gold resource at Round Mountain (net to its 50% interest) of 64.1 million tonnes at 0.6 g/t Au.

More than 1 Moz of gold have been mined to date in the Manhattan Mining District. Production has included the nearby Manhattan mine (1974-1990), an open-pit operation that produced 236,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 0.08 ounce per ton ("opt") and the Echo Bay East and West Pit deposits immediately to the west of EMW that operated in the early 1990s, producing 260,000 ounces at an average grade of 0.06 opt.
