/THIS NEWS RELEASE AND THE INFORMATION CONTAINED HEREIN ARE NOT FOR
DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES/
VANCOUVER, Sept. 11 /CNW/ - EurOmax Resources Limited (TSX-V: EOX)
("EurOmax") is pleased to announce that it has commenced a 13 square kilometre
geophysical program and a 2,500 metre diamond drilling program at Ceovishte to
test two large gold bearing breccia bodies.
During 2008 EurOmax completed a detailed mapping and soil geochemistry
program defining a 6 kilometer long zone of strongly altered andesite
volcanics and intrusives with abundant ancient mine workings. Drilling at the
northern end of this trend by EurOmax in 2008 intersected multiple gossan and
massive sulphide intervals, one of which reported 12.4 metres at 1.5% copper,
1.4% lead, 0.8% zinc, 62 g/t silver and 1.6 g/t gold. This program also
defined a 3 kilometre by 2 kilometre magmatic complex at the southern end of
the trend which remained undrilled in 2008. This feature is now the focus of
the 2009 exploration program.
The magmatic complex is cored by an altered and brecciated diorite. In
the central part of the complex two connected bodies of silica breccia with
locally massive gossanous matrix have been mapped at surface and in the
sub-surface with IP. Resistivity defines a broad zone of low resistivity
consistent with the strong clay alteration mapped at surface.
The South Breccia measures 1200 metres by an average of 400 metres at
surface. Geophysics shows a wider body at depth extending to at least 500
metres from surface. This breccia has been worked in ancient times with
underground workings and open pits individually up to 300 metres long and more
than 70 metres wide. Reconnaissance sampling of float and outcrops within and
adjacent to these open pits reports up to 4.1 g/t gold, 124 g/t silver and
0.4% copper. Several 500 metre long drillholes are planned to test the South
Breccia. A section with planned drillhole trace through the South Breccia is
provided as figure 1.
The second breccia, North Breccia, measures 1,600 metres in length with
an average width of 300 metres. At its southern end it is connected to the
South Breccia. North Breccia hosts the largest open pits within the licence.
Geophysics shows a body in the subsurface with a strong IP response consistent
with the surface expression of the gossanous breccia and largest open pits.
This feature dips steeply to the east and extends to 700 metres from surface.
A section with planned drillhole trace through the North Breccia is provided
as figure 2.
The geophysical program continues and is planned to cover the entire 6
kilometre long mineralized belt. A 2,500 metre diamond drilling program has
commenced and a second rig is expected on site before the end of September.

Quality control and Quality Assurance
Rock chip samples were prepared and assayed by SGS Chelopech laboratory
in Bulgaria. SGS Chelopech follows SGS Global methods and procedures and has
stringent quality control and assurance practices. Gold was assayed by a 30
gram fire assay with an AAS/ICPOES finish while other elements were assayed by
a two acid digest with an ICPOES finish. Higher grades were assayed by a four
acid digest with an AAS finish. Assay results are consistent with
expectations. Drilling results reported herein were previously reported by
John Menzies, a qualified person as defined by National Instrument
43-101, supervised the preparation of the information in this release.

forward-looking statements, including but not limited to: risks related to the
integration of acquisitions, risks related to international operations, actual
results of current exploration activities, conclusions of economic
evaluations, changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined and
although EurOmax has attempted to identify important factors that could cause
actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking
statements, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as
anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such
