VANCOUVER, Oct. 28 /CNW/ - EurOmax Resources Limited (TSX-V: EOX)
("EurOmax") is pleased to announce initial exploration results on the Durlan
Potok licence where a 2 kilometre long gold and copper in soil anomaly has
The 56 square kilometre Durlan Potok lies along the important Bor Fault.
Major deposits in the Bor district lie close to this structure.
Durlan Potok is 12 kilometres to the north of the Bor (Bor Deposit, 144
million tonnes at 1.7% copper 1.1 g/t gold, Bor porphyry, 620 million tonnes
at 0.62% copper and 0.25 g/t gold)) and Veliki Krivelj (greater than 540
million tonnes at 0.35% copper) mining operations. The 1 billion tonnes
Majdanpek deposit (0.62% copper, 0.28 g/t gold) is 20 kilometres to the NNW
along the Bor Fault while the 340 million tonne Cerovo porphyry copper-gold
deposit (0.32% copper, 0.07 g/t gold) lies two kilometres to the south of the
Durlan Potok licence.
Initial wide spaced soil sampling has defined a 2000 metre long soil gold
and copper anomaly with peak values of 720 ppb gold and 620 ppm copper.
Outcrop within the survey area is poor and limited float sampling has produced
encouraging results including one sample which assayed 33% copper, 5.5g/t
gold, 160g/t silver, 1.1% lead, 0.4% zinc. This sample had high levels of tin
and bismuth suggestive that high sulphidation copper-gold mineralisation may
be responsible for the soil anomaly. Other samples had strongly anomalous
copper within a 200 metre wide zone of locally intense silica-pyrite
mineralisation along the western side of the anomaly.
Drilling by a State mining company during 1980 in the center of the
licence to the west of the high grade zone now being evaluated intersected
wide intervals of low grade copper mineralisation in strongly silicified and
pyritic andesite. The State mining company after drilling 13 diamond
drillholes totalling 5,676 metres reported a historical non 43-101 compliant
resource of 500 million tonnes at 0.14% copper. EurOmax does not have access
to the drillcore but believes the results to be reliable. This low grade
mineralisation is open to the east and is of a type typically peripheral to
porphyry copper-gold deposits.
Detailed infill soil sampling, mapping and more extensive float
geochemistry has been completed and trenching and mapping are now in progress
ahead of a planned drilling program later in 2008.

Quality control and Quality Assurance
Soil and rock chip assays are performed at Eurotest AD laboratory in
Sofia, Bulgaria, an ISO9001 accredited facility. Gold was assayed by 50 gram
fire assay while other elements were assayed using acid digest-ICPMS. No
external quality control samples were submitted.
