Max Resource Corp. [TSXV: MXR, OTC: MXROF, FSE: M1D1] (“MAX” or the “Company”) is pleased to report the results of a “cloud stitched” Long Wave InfraRed (LWIR) survey over a 1,000 sq. km area within the Company’s 1,757 sq. km “Choco Gold Bearing Conglomerate Project”, located 100km SW of Medellin, Colombia.


• The LWIR results appear to suggest a strong correlation between the gold bearing conglomerate Trial Pits and Outcrop sample sites and LWIR anomalies.
• The LWIR survey area encompasses the previously reported 36 sq. km gold bearing zone and covers or is adjacent to historic production (1906 – 1990) of 742,308 oz. gold and 769,049 oz. of platinum and the 2006 ANM drill hole which identified conglomerates units down to 500m.

• The LWIR identified anomalous zones interpreted to be conglomerates continue further to the northeast and southwest.

Brett Matich, MAX’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The LWIR has yielded responses throughout the 1000 sq. km survey area similar to responses over the 36 sq. km area of our concentrated exploration efforts to date.” He continued: “The LWIR survey has also further increased our level of confidence in a possible link between overlying Choco Pacific production and underlying gold-bearing conglomerates.”

LWIR Survey

Max conducted the cloud stitching Long Wave InfraRed (LWIR) survey to investigate a potential correlation between conglomerate outcropping and areas of historic production. Historically, satellite imagery has been hindered because of year-round cloud cover. This survey sourced multiple bands through the gaps in the clouds over a 20-year period, stitching the imagery together.

LWIR analysis, through proprietary processing of Aster satellite data, has the ability to map or identify, through reflectance spectroscopy against a set of known standards, mineral distribution over extremely large areas covered by vegetation and shallow cover. The ground-penetrating nature of infrared radiation in the long wave bands allows viewing of mineral spectra in the first 30 to 60 centimetres of the earth’s surface through dense vegetation.

The Choco Gold Bearing Conglomerate Project

MAX has 100% ownership of 82 and 50% of 7 mineral license applications, totaling over 1,757 sq. km located within Choco Department approximately 100km SW of the city of Medellin, Colombia.

Compania Minera del Choco Pacifico (“Choco Pacific”) produced 1.5 million ounces of surface gold and 1.0 million ounces of surface platinum from the “Choco District” between 1906 to 1990, largely limited to an average depth of 8 meters or less.

MAX’s Choco Gold Project covers or is adjacent to much of Choco Pacific’s historic exploration and production areas, in addition, an ANM hole drilled for hydrocarbons in the northern end of the current 1000 sq. km exploration area, that appears to have intersected zones of conglomerates through the top 500 metres according to the summary of drill log for hole Choco-1-ST-P. None of the conglomerate was sampled for gold as the target was deeper hydrocarbons.
