EurOmax Commence Drilling 5 Kilometre Copper Zone at Kazandol

VANCOUVER, Jan. 11 /CNW/ - EurOmax Resources Limited (TSX-V: EOX) (EurOmax) commences 4,000 metres reverse circulation program to evaluate 5 kilometre long Kazandol copper zone.

A planned 4,000 metre reverse circulation drilling program at Kazandol in Macedonia has commenced. Road and drill pad construction has been completed and 53 drillholes permitted. This program will systematically test 5 kilometres of the strike of the previously mapped copper bearing, shallowly dipping, Kazandol copper zone.

Drilling and mapping have now defined an extensive sub-horizontal copper zone in greenschist and granite above a thrust fault with un-mineralized granite in the lower thrust sheet. This copper-bearing upper plate outcrops over an area of 800 metres by 800 metres at Kazandol North and has now been mapped in outcrop and with geochemistry over a strike of more than 5 kilometres to the south.

Mineralization consists of tenorite, a copper oxide and malachite a copper carbonate both readily acid soluble. Previous drilling, at the northern end of this trend at Kazandol north, reported encouraging results including 47 metres at 0.6% copper beneath wide trench intercepts including 115 meters at 0.6% copper.

Drilling will commence at the southern end of the Kazandol copper zone where there is widespread malachite, tenorite and cuprite in outcrop associated with stockworked granite bodies.

Quality Control and Assurance

Trench and drillhole samples were prepared at a EurOmax supervised facility in Macedonia and assayed by acid digest ICP at EuroTest Control AD an ISO9001 accredited facility in Bulgaria. Quality control standards and blanks were routinely included.
