Drilling begins at Howell Gold project in British Columbia
MAX Resource Corp. (TSX.V: MXR; OTCBB: MXROF; Frankfurt: M1D
) is pleased to announce that drilling has begun on the Howell gold project located in south-eastern British Columbia.
The Howell Gold Project
is comprised of 4,376 hectares located one hour by gravel road south of the town of Sparwood, straddling the drainages of Twenty-Nine Mile Creek and Howell Creek.
At Howell Creek, gold mineralization occurs disseminated in limestone and with quartz stockworks in syenite intrusives and Proterozoic sediments. Prior drilling has included 1.23 g/t gold over 58 metres, 0.95 g/t gold over 39 metres, 0.65 g/t gold over 82 metres, and 0.57 g/t gold over 149 metres. A diamond drill hole from 2006, collared to the west of the surface expression of the important Palaeozoic limestone, penetrated a near surface fault and intersected 43 metres of limestone grading 0.42 g/t gold to the bottom of the hole at 66 metres. The last sample in this hole graded 0.44 g/t gold indicating a need to drill deeper and test the target along strike; the first hole of the current program will deepen this hole to approximately 200 metres.
An important additional target which will be tested in the current program is Carbonate Replacement Deposit ("CRD") style mineralization in the general vicinity of hole HRC-15 (located 1,100 metres to the west of the first hole of the current program), drilled by Placer Dome Inc. in 1988, which intersected 7.6 metres grading 51.5 g/t silver, 1.98% lead, 1.87% zinc, and 0.32 g/t gold.
MAX plans to drill a minimum of 1,000 meters at Howell, which is one of two exploration projects in British Columbia recently optioned from Eastfield Resources Ltd. (TSX.V:ETF) as announced in our news release of June 9, 2008.
