Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 3, 2019) - MAX RESOURCE CORP. (TSXV: MXR) (OTC Pink: MXROF) (FSE: M1D1) (the "Company") is pleased to report that, at the Special Meeting of Shareholders held on April 2, 2019, shareholders adopted a special resolution approving the transaction with Noble Metals Limited ("Noble") and its wholly-owned subsidiary Condoto Platinum Limited ("Condoto") (the "Transaction").

- The Novita Agreement area encompasses or is adjacent to the Company's Choco Precious Metals Project, which covers an area of 1,757 sq. km, located 100 km SW of Medellin, Colombia.
- Established infrastructure, including a fully operation 30-man exploration camp at the town of Novita.
- The Choco Precious Metals Project covers or is adjacent to historic surface production of 1.5Mozs of gold and 1.0Mozs of platinum by Compania Minera del Choco Pacifico between 1906 and 1990.

The Company advises that mineralization hosted on adjacent properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the Company's Choco Precious Metals Project.
Brett Matich, Max's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "Shareholder approval of the Noble Transaction represents a major milestone for the Company. This transaction secures a major ground position in a world class precious metals province."
The Transaction is described in a definitive asset purchase agreement (the "Transaction Agreement") dated effective February 8, 2019, pursuant to which the Company has agreed to purchase a bundle of resource exploration assets located in the Choco Department of Colombia between Noble, Condoto, a local Colombian branch of Condoto (known as a "Sucursal") and the Novita Higher Community Council. In consideration for these assets, MAX has agreed to pay the sum of C$500,000 and to issue to Noble 26,665,896 MAX common shares (the "Acquisition Shares").
At the Special Meeting, the Company's shareholders adopted an additional special resolution to approve Noble as a 'Control Person' of the Company as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company anticipates that Noble will become a Control Person when the Acquisition Shares are issued upon the completion of the Transaction because, at closing, Noble will hold 29.2% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company. The Transaction remains subject to conditions within the Transaction Agreement and the TSX Venture Exchange conditional approval letter.
