Max Resource Corp has provided an update to the Phase 1 exploration program for the Company's 100% owned Cesar copper-silver project, located 420 km north of Bogota, Colombia. Max CEO Brett Matich said "Initial Cesar phase of exploration reported grab sample assays ranging from 0.3% to 4.2% copper and from 1g/t to 116g/t silver, the first batch of chip sampling assay results are expected very soon. We are very encouraged with the visible copper oxide mineralization throughout a concentrated area of our Cesar copper-silver project and will continue to focus our exploration strategy toward a significant discovery in the Jurassic rocks of northeast Colombia. The widespread copper occurrences throughout this area of Colombia support the Company's belief these rocks could host a significant copper-silver deposit similar to the European Kupferschiefer.”

This part of the exploration program consisted of rock chip sampling across stratigraphy with the purpose of identifying potentially economic copper-silver mineralization of which assay results are pending.

Max field geologists selected eight samples from different lithological units for petrographic analysis at Vancouver Petrographics. All eight samples show vivid green chrysocolla and malachite, along with azurite, chalcocite, chalcopyrite, and also native copper.

Phase II of the Cesar exploration program is scheduled to commence in mid-January 2020 to follow-up reported assay results, conduct additional chip and/or channel sampling, and identify drill targets, along with geological modelling and field visits of other stratabound copper-silver targets in the Cesar regional area.
