MAX Drills 222.6 m @ 0.27% Cu and 10.1 g/t Ag, Inclusive of 117.4 m @ 0.43% Cu and 12.0 g/t Ag, in Oxides at Majuba Hill, Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- MAX Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE: MXR) (OTCBB: MXROF) (FRANKFURT: M1D) has received assays from the first core hole drilled at it's Majuba Hill silver/copper/gold project in Nevada in June 2014. This first hole, MMX-24, was drilled to a depth of 365.8 metres ("m") and intercepted 222.6 m @ 0.27% Cu and 10.1 g/t Ag, inclusive of 117.4 m @ 0.43% Cu and 12.0 g/t Ag. MMX-24 was drilled roughly parallel to and 85 m northwest and 25 m below the collar of MAX's hole MM-21, drilled in 2012, which intersected 332 m @ 0.13% Cu and 12 g/t Ag.

Drill hole MMX-24 was drilled from the opposite side of Majuba Ridge as hole MM-21 and successfully tested the down-dip extension of copper/silver mineralization intercepted by MM-21, hole DDH-4 drilled by Freeport in 1940's, and hole MF-1 drilled by Minefinders in 1974. The alteration of the mineralization is mainly potassium feldspar and quartz and the probable copper mineralization is chalcocite and the silver mineral acanthite and or chloargyrite. Alteration is increasing as the holes are extended to depth and appear to be continuous. MMX-24 and MM-21 both intersected mineralization exposed at surface as copper oxides running as high as 7.72% Cu (see our news release of February 5, 2014).

MMX-24 was collared approximately 415 m east-northeast of the middle portal of the past producing Majuba Hill mine, where MAX drilling in 2011 intercepted high grade copper/silver supergene oxide mineralization over long intervals that included:


--  Hole MM-07: 50.3 m of 50.8 g/t Ag, 0.31 g/t gold and 0.31% Cu
--  Hole MM-06: 96.0 m of 39.2 g/t Ag and 0.57% Cu, including 44.2 m of 71.0
    g/t Ag, 0.15 g/t Au and 1.14% Cu
--  Hole MM-03: 42.7 m of 37.5 g/t Ag and 0.38% Cu

Significant intervals from MMX-24 are summarized in the following table:


----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hole   Azimuth Angle   Total     From    To     Thickness    Cu     Ag

Maps indicating the location of this drill hole as well as locations from previous programs at Majuba Hill are available on our web site at www.maxresource.com.

Analysis was performed by Bureau Veritas (Inspectorate), an ISO certified facility in Reno, Nevada, using multi-element method MA330 (ICP-ES) techniques producing assays for a 30 element suite of minerals. Over-limit analyses were performed according to procedure MA410. No analysis was conducted for gold. Standards, duplicates and blanks were used for quality control of the samples. After the core is logged for each drill hole, the location of each site is located using a GPS in UTM coordinates using NAD 83 datum. The core is then hydraulically split and put into a sample bag which is labeled for each interval and taken from the core facility to the Bureau Veritas laboratory.

Majuba Hill is the site of numerous past producing mines, with historic production reported of 12% Cu (Mason Valley Copper, 1918) and silver grades up to 40 oz/t Ag. Majuba Hill encompasses 2,568 acres of surface and mineral rights that includes patented lode mining claims. The property is easily accessed via 23 miles of well-maintained dirt roads leading from U.S. Interstate 80, and lies 30 miles northwest of Coeur Mining's Rochester silver mine, which contains a NI 43-101 compliant Measured and Indicated Resource of 263.9 million tons grading 0.46 oz/ton Ag and 0.004 oz/ton Au. (The Coeur Technical Report on the Rochester Mine is available on SEDAR).
