Max Resource Corp. announce the filing of a technical report for its RT Gold Project, located 760-km NNW of Lima in the District of Tabaconas, Department of Cajamarca, Peru. This report, dated March 8, 2023, is titled “RT Gold Project, Cajamarca, Peru” was prepared for Max Resource Corp., by Qualified Person (“QP”) Luis Rodrigo Peralta FAusIMM CP (Geo) in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”). The report can be found on the Company’s website at https://maxresource.com and on SEDAR at www.sedar.com under the Company’s Issuer Profile.
“The RT Gold report validates the true potential of the two distinct gold-bearing systems; the CERRO bulk tonnage porphyry zone, and 3-km NW lies, the TABLON massive sulfide zone,” commented Max CEO, Brett Matich.
“The new TABLON diamond core assays demonstrate the exceptional near surface high-grade-gold drill results and associated credits of copper, silver and zinc over substantial intervals,” he continued.
“The next step is to conduct an environmental survey in preparation for a drilling program to further expand TABLON and to test the outstanding intrusive target at CERRO which has never been drilled,” he concluded.
Highlight 2021 drill core re-assay results:
RT Gold sits along the Cajamarca Metallogenic belt, extending north from Central Peru into Southern Ecuador. This prolific belt hosts a number of world class deposits; In Ecuador, the Fruta Del Norte¹ discovery of 15.49Mozs Au, Mirador² with 2.67Mt Cu and 2.74Mozs Au (2008) and the new discovery by Solaris Resources at its Warintza4 deposit with 2.7Mt of Cu and 0.93Mozs Au. On the Peruvian side; Newmont’s Yanacocha³ 8.61Mozs gold (refer to Figure 1).
CERRO hosts several mineralized zones. Soil geochemistry has outlined a 2.0 by 1.5-km gold anomaly, open in all directions with gold values ranging from 0.1 to 4.0 g/t. The soil geochemistry is coincident with IP chargeability. A continuous channel sample across the zone assayed 3.3 g/t gold over a width of 25.5m.
TABLON was drilled in 2001 by Golden Alliance Resources Corp. In February 2021, Max obtained the historic drill core and commenced a re-logging and resampling campaign. The resampling results confirmed thickness and grade of the 2001 historical drill intercepts and reasonably well reproduce the reported grades.
In addition, the gold-bearing mineralization is associated with highly anomalous silver and copper values. The multi element suite of data will allow Max to examine metal ratios and zoning patterns for target generation and geological interpretation purposes (refer Figures 2 to 4 and Table 1 and 2).

About Max Resource Corp.
Max Resource Corp. (TSXV: MAX) is a mineral exploration company advancing the newly discovered district-scale CESAR copper-silver project. The wholly owned CESAR project sits along the Colombian portion of the world’s largest producing copper belt (Andean belt), with world class infrastructure and the presence of global majors (Glencore and Chevron).
In addition, Max controls the RT Gold project (100% earn-in) in Peru, encompassing two distinct systems, CERRO a bulk tonnage gold-bearing porphyry zone, and 3-km to the NW, TABLON a gold-bearing massive sulfide zone. Historic drilling in 2001 at TABLON, returned values ranging 3.1 to 118.1 g/t gold over core lengths ranging from 2.2 to 36.0-metres.
Max is proactive, with the corporate goal of transitioning the CESAR basin towards the mining of copper, the key metal for Colombia’s transition to clean energy. The safety of our people and the communities where we operate is most important. We conduct exploration in a manner which supports protection of ecosystems through responsible environmental stewardship.
