MAX Resource has recommenced core drilling at its Table Top gold project in Humboldt County, Nevada. Table Top is situated immediately to the south of the Sandman gold project, one of the Nevada properties and 10 miles west of the town of Winnemucca.
MAX has encountered a major gold mineralization present in sedimentary rocks like the typical Carlin mineralization. MAX has confirmed that mineralization widens to a depth and enhanced in width and grade. The company has cut 0.91 g/t gold over 12.1 m and 1.09 g/t gold over 9.1 m, at a depth of 227 m. This mineralized zone will analyze the length of the strike to the east and west and it also consists of a deep drill hole to examine the zone extension seeking higher grade gold within the sedimentary rocks.
The previous workers have discovered "Jasperiod" from the outcrop’s rock samples at the west side of the system. The region has intercepted gold values of up to 1100 ppb Au. During the current drilling program, assays of the down dip extension will be examined.
The location of the Table Top is in the regional geologic feature that controls mineralization. This area has numerous high-grade gold systems along this gold trend, as well as Sleeper Canyon Mine of AMAX that produced 2.5 Moz gold, which is sited 25 miles to the north, and the Goldbanks situated 37 miles to the south.
