Max Resource Corp. - Management - Mon Apr 3, 2017
Clancy Wendt received his B.S. degree from San Diego State University in 1967.
He began his career at Stauffer Chemical and worked at various companies until returning to the University of Arizona where he obtained his M.S. degree in 1978. After this he worked at Duval Corporation and other companies until becoming District Manager for Westmont Mining. He is credited with the Mt. Hamilton gold/molybdenum discovery in Nevada and managed the programs which led to the discovery of other deposits in the Carlin Trend. Mr. Wendt has been a consulting geologist since 1992, specializing in exploration and evaluation of mineral deposits. He is a registered geologist in Arizona, British Columbia, Canada, and a Chartered Professional Geologist in Australia and is writes reports for various exchanges. He is a member of SME, SEG, FAusIMM(CP), PDAC, a former Trustee of the NWMA and Member of the Board of Directors of the Mining Club of the Southwest. In addition, Mr. Wendt is the recipient of the Presidents Award from the NWMA, the Ben F. Dickerson Award, and is a past President of the Geological Society of Nevada. With over 39 years of gold and silver exploration in the Americas, Mr. Wendt has been involved in the discovery of 12 gold deposits in Nevada alone, with total resources in excess of 17 million ounces Au. Based in Reno, he maintains an extensive database of precious metal exploration opportunities in Nevada and the surrounding Western states.

Drill Campaign Could Re Ignite Utah Uranium Mining Boom , Economics
In the summer of 1980, exploration manager Clancy Wendt, then working for Phillips Uranium, a subsidiary of the oil company, had three rigs and a crew drilling mile centers in Utah's Thomas mountain range.
They drilled between 60 and 70 holes, over every square mile, looking for altered versus unaltered rock to indicate uranium. One of those drill holes encountered 0.05% U3O8 over a 100-foot thickness at a depth of 900 feet. Shortly thereafter, Clancy Wendt was transferred to the company's minerals division, Phillips drilled a few more holes, and oh, by the way, there had been an accident about 2,000 miles away near Middletown, Pennsylvania, at a place called Three Mile Island. Utilities stopped building reactors and the uranium exploration business came to a grinding halt. Phillips Petroleum got out of the minerals business, and Clancy Wendt went on to discover the Mt. Hamilton gold deposit in the Carlin Trend for another company. But that drill hole about 150 miles southwest of Salt Lake City never stopped bugging him. "When you find something, you always remember that," Wendt told StockInterview.com. "I was working with it day and night. That was my project. And it is his project again today. After a twenty-odd-year hiatus, Wendt staked 540 acres of the property, which had been abandoned, and then optioned the 27 claims to Max Resource Corp (TSX: MXR; OTC BB: MXORF) for what both parties called a reasonable sum. Since then, Max Resource Corp staked around those claims, and increased the company's land position to 195 lode claims comprising 3,900 acres in the Thomas Mountain range. "We staked the entire caldera rim," Wendt explained, "because that is exactly where I think the uranium is going to be, within that rim or within the moat inside that rim. Wendt is now the vice president of exploration for Max Resource Corp. "Clancy was one of the few guys who knew about it." Clancy Wendt observed, "This is an area that is well known for mining. Wendt explained the geology of the caldera, "The age of the mineralization is very young, when compared to uranium in Wyoming. It's between 27 and 34 million years. It's found within the caldera ring of the vent within a major vent, which is 40 to 50 miles across. Right at the edge of the circle (it stands out just like a circle on a topography map or land sat image), is where we found the mineralization. Wendt added, "It is postulated that this vent was the source rock for the Yellow Chief sediments. Wendt, who has talked with Lindsay about the geology at Thomas Mountain, said this about the beryllium tuft, "The mineralization found in our drill hole, I think, is in the beryllium tuff unit. Wendt also explained that background or trace values might be present, but economic values of beryllium would be very unusual. Ore occurs in tuffaceous sandstone that has been correlated with the tuff that hosts beryllium deposits nearby. Another indicator mineral suggesting uranium mineralization came about by accident on the first pass two decades ago. "When I drove up in my truck and I started walking toward the drill rig," Wendt remembered. "I thought fo r a minute the drillers had been dumping cottonseed hulls. (Drillers sometimes use cottonseed hulls to plug up formations that might suck up water.) Instead of hulls, I'm looking at this long line of black quartz crystals on the rocks. Smoky quartz, or black quartz, crystals are formed through natural radiation coming from nearby uranium deposits. That confirmed for Wendt that a uranium deposit was in the vicinity. "It's not an indicator mineral in all systems, but it is in this one," said Wendt. Reverse Circulation Drilling Could Increase Grade Asked if he would find uranium during this month's drill program, Wendt chuckled after answering "Yep. Why is he certain he would when most geologists pause on questions asking for a guarantee? "Because I found it there before," Wendt laughed. "If I hadn't drilled the hole there before, I would waffle, too. After the first hole, I don't promise any guarantees. That's the one I drilled. Why test what was once drilled in 1980? "We're going to re-drill to confirm the hole so that it complies with National Instrument 43-101," Wendt explained. "Secondly, we want to get a good sample that we can assay." His comment about getting a "good sample" to assay opened the door to the previous drilling, which was mud rotary style. Wendt explained how mud rotary drilling was done over 25 years ago at the present site: Wendt agreed this was not a very scientific method in determining grades. "When you dumped it on the ground, you really didn't get a great sample for assay," he laughed. "You're only getting the chunky material. Any of the "real fine" material" would go through the colander. Wendt is optimistic about establishing a more accurate grade from the upcoming drill program, "It should come in higher. How will reverse circulation provide a different grade? "With reverse circ, you are sucking the material right up out of the center of the pipe," Wendt emphasized. "You are not losing the fine material." Another reason for reverse circulation is Wendt believes the system is "probably 6-7 million years old and in disequilibrium. Perhaps the timing was bad for Phillips Uranium, but just perfect for a very patient Clancy Wendt and Max Resource Corp.
Clancy Wendt, P. Geo, VP Exploration of MAX Resource Corp., states "we are extremely pleased with these initial results from our drilling at Majuba Hill.Â The high-grade silver and copper results from hole MM-03, combined with the recent soil sampling results that indicate that high-grade copper and silver mineralization exists well beyond the immediate area of the past producing Majuba Hill mine, serves to confirm our theory that Majuba Hill is a newly defined copper/silver porphyry system that is highly prospective for the discovery of economic mineralization.Â We eagerly look forward to receipt of the outstanding assays from the five additional holes drilled at Majuba Hill and to further drilling later this fall on the new target areas we have identified."
