Your option then is to try using data recovery software to get beyond the corruption and retrieve whatever files you can and then reformat the drive so it can be used. I had this same issue…and tried a lot of the prescriptions out there: manually mounting the drive through terminal, repairing the drive through Disk Utility, etc…but was never able to get my drive to mount on a mac.

In the end I copied my material to another drive, reformatting the original drive exfat on a Mac, then copying the original material back over which I realize with a 10TB drive is not ideal or maybe not even an option…. Maybe this is common knowledge to people?

A couple of the other answers aren't good examples, but the goal of answers is to educate rather than just provide cut and paste code. I'm not a coder, so I can't address how good your solution might be, but I suspect bertieb's comment, and perhaps the downvote, go to the fact that this is just unexplained code, rather than to the quality of solution.
