MAX completes drilling at Indata Gold/Copper project in B.C.MAX Resource Corp. (TSX.V: MXR; OTCBB: MXROF; Frankfurt: M1D) has completed five holes totaling 1,035 metres (3,400 feet) at the Indata gold/copper property in Central British Columbia, located approximately 120 kilometres northwest of the town of Fort St. James.
At Indata, lode gold is being targeted following the Mother Lode model developed in California. In early 2008, MAX completed a review of historic work at Indata and concluded that very little exploration had been done in the down dip direction of the previous drilling. If the Indata property was indeed a Mother Lode style system, then significant down dip extension of previously found mineralization could be expected. Twenty-four historic diamond drill intercepts, drilled by Eastfield Resources Ltd. (TSX.V:ETF) at Indata in 1988 (and financed by Placer Dome through private placements), have an average vein intercept of 1.54 metres width with an average grade of 8.41 g/tonne gold and 52.43 g/tonne silver. The most significant intercept, hole 88-11, included an intercept of 47.26 g/t gold and 2.00 g/t silver over 4 metres (estimated to be 3.5 true thickness).
Four holes were completed in the gold target at Indata during the current program with all holes encountering variable thicknesses of quartz sulfide mineralization. A fifth hole was completed in an adjacent and possibly unrelated porphyry copper target. A map indicating the location of the current drill holes is available on our web site at www.maxresource.com.
Indata is one of two exploration projects in British Columbia recently optioned from Eastfield Resources, as announced in our news release of June 9, 2008.
MAX has completed four separate drill programs in 2008, at Gold Hill in Alaska (molybdenum), Ravin in Nevada (molybdenum), Howell in B.C. (gold) and now at Indata. Drill results from these programs are expected to be available over the coming weeks. MAX remains well-financed, with $4.7 Million in cash and cash equivalents as of the date of this news release.
