MAX Power Acquires Lithium Properties in James Bay District Corvette Camp
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MAX Power Mining Corp. (CSE: MAXX) (“MAX Power” or the “Company”) has launched a North American-focused lithium strategy with the acquisition of nearly 100 sq. km of claims in proximity to the prolific CV Lithium Trend and Patriot Battery Metals’ (PMET’s) Corvette lithium discovery in the James Bay District of Quebec.
Highlights of the acquisition include:
- MAX Power has purchased a 100% interest in two under-explored large claim blocks (Corvette Lake North and Corvette Lake South) in proximity to PMET’s Corvette Property as shown in Figure 1;
- Historical reports, government data and very recent reconnaissance have documented pegmatite occurrences on Corvette Lake North, just 5 km south of PMET’s CV5 pegmatite discovery where recent drilling returned 156.9 meters at 2.12% Li2O (drill hole CV22-083) as reported by PMET January 20, 2023;
- A large prospective area spanning 9,709 hectares over 189 mineral claims;
- Armed with over $4 million in cash and a favorable share structure, MAX Power is preparing a two-phase 2023 exploration program at its Corvette Camp properties with details to be announced soon;
- MAX Power continues to evaluate other potential opportunities in the Lithium sector.
Mr. Rav Mlait, MAX Power CEO, commented: “This important acquisition on favorable terms is a first major step for MAX Power as it positions itself in the rapidly expanding lithium sector. ‘Lithium to the MAX’ is our motto as we build out a dynamic lithium brand focused on Canada and the United States.”
Property Location Map and Bedrock Geology
The properties are both situated along the shores of Corvette Lake and located in the La Grande geological sub-province. The rocks are generally Archaean in age. The MAX Power claims are underlain by 20km of strike length of underexplored intrusive and sedimentary rocks. Corvette North has seen minor historical mineral exploration, primarily for gold. Historical reports and government data document pegmatite occurrences on Corvette North. This same historical work suggests pegmatites can occur within a variety of rock types.
Management cautions that mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on MAX Power’s properties.

Forward-Looking Statement Cautions
This press release contains certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Canadian securities legislation, relating to exploration, drilling, mineralization and historical results on the Properties; the interpretation of drilling and assay results, the initiation of and the results thereby of any future drilling program, mineralization and the discovery mineralization (if any); plans for future exploration and drilling and the timing of same; the merits of the Properties and the James Bay region, generally; the potential for lithium within the Properties; commentary as it related to the opportune timing to explore lithium exploration and any anticipated increasing demand for lithium; any results and updates thereto as it relates to the USGS report; the Company’s concentration hypothesis; closing of the transaction; future press releases by the Company; funding of any future drilling program; regulatory approval, including but not limited to the CSE. Although the Company believes that such statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts; they are generally, but not always, identified by the words “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “interpreted,” “intends,” “estimates,” “projects,” “aims,” “suggests,” “often,” “target,” “future,” “likely,” “pending,” “potential,” “goal,” “objective,” “prospective,” “possibly,” “preliminary”, and similar expressions, or that events or conditions “will,” “would,” “may,” “can,” “could” or “should” occur, or are those statements, which, by their nature, refer to future events.

Factors that could cause future results to differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements include risks associated with possible accidents and other risks associated with mineral exploration operations, the risk that the Company will encounter unanticipated geological factors, risks associated with the interpretation of assay results and the drilling program, the possibility that the Company may not be able to secure permitting and other governmental clearances necessary to carry out the Company’s exploration plans, the risk that the Company will not be able to raise sufficient funds to carry out its business plans, and the risk of political uncertainties and regulatory or legal changes that might interfere with the Company’s business and prospects.
