MAX Begins Drill Program at Gold Hill Molybdenum Project, Alaska
MAX Resource Corp. (TSX.V: MXR; OTCBB: MXROF; Frankfurt: M1D)
is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at Gold Hill in Alaska, following up on a five hole drill program MAX conducted in 2007 that intersected significant molybdenum mineralization (MoS2
) over long intervals starting at surface and ending in mineralization at depth in four of the holes.
MAX's 2007 drill program was testing a broad Molybdenum/Copper/Gold geochemistry and geophysical magnetic anomaly covering at least a 700 by 800 meter area. Highlights from the 2007 drill program included:
DH-07-01 - 250 feet of 0.080% MoS2
DH-07-03 - 1000 feet of 0.058% MoS2 (including 45 feet of 0.18% MoS2)
DH-07-04 - 250 feet of 0.0603% MoS2
DH-07-05 - 352 feet of 0.0706% MoS2
This first drill hole of the 2008 program will test the zone to the east of drill hole DH-07-05 and examine the continuation of the high grade mineralization encountered in drill hole DH-07-01 and under drill hole DH-07-03.
Drill hole DH-07-05 was an angled drill hole designed to test across the mineralization that was intersected in drill holes DH-07-02 and DH-07-03. The hole did not cut the entire interval and mineralization was visibly increasing at the bottom of the drill hole as it neared the projection of the main zone. This hole will be continued this drill season.
Prior drilling reported by the New Alaska Syndicate (Cities Services Minerals and Dome Mines Ltd.) at Gold Hill in the 1970's included drill hole DDH 77-2, which intersected quartz-molybdenum +/- copper grading 536 feet of 0.048% MoS2, starting at surface, with a higher grade interval from 350-500 of 0.094% MoS2.
Their drilling never tested the significant magnetic anomaly that coincides with the mineralization or the surrounding sedimentary rocks. Further, six of these drill holes, which will be tested this year, bottomed in mineralization and were never drilled to test the contact between the magnetic intrusive and the sedimentary host. The deepest drill hole during this time was one 500 foot angle drill hole drilled oblique to the strike of the sediments.
The Gold Hill property comprises 8,520 acres located approximately 212 miles north northeast of Anchorage and is accessible to within five air miles of the property by the all-weather unpaved Denali Highway (State Highway 8).
