VANCOUVER, Aug. 4 /CNW/ - EurOmax Resources Limited announces that recent drillhole results have confirmed a potential zone of oxide copper mineralization over an area 900 metres long and 400 metres wide at Kazandol North. This drilling was part of a program designed to systematically test the previously mapped copper bearing, shallowly dipping, Kazandol copper zone for five kilometres along strike. The drill program included forty-eight reverse circulation holes totaling 2,342 metres.

"We are obviously pleased with the results that confirm the potential at Kazandol North," said Christopher Serin Interim Chief Executive Officer of EurOmax. "This news closely follows other good news regarding the Ilovitza project and our Breznik property. Our ongoing program evaluating our mineral properties is clearly bearing positive results."

The drill results, which are true thickness, at Kazandol North are summarized in the table below:

These results indicate a potential continuity of oxide copper over an area of 900 metres by 400 metres close to surface. The zone of interest at Kazandol North is contained in a sub-horizontal copper zone in greenschist and granite above a thrust fault with un-mineralized granite and gneiss in the lower thrust sheet. Mineralization at Kazandol generally consists of tenorite, a copper oxide and malachite a copper carbonate both readily acid soluble. Previous drilling, at the northern end of this trend reported encouraging results including 47 metres at 0.6% copper from surface beneath wide trench intercepts including 115 meters at 0.6% copper. Management believes that this type of mineralization will be amenable to low cost cathode copper production using a SX-EW method.

The drill program was also focused on identifying a potential extension of this mineralization to the south of the Kazandol North Zone. The drill results, which are true thickness, on Kazandol South are tabulated below.

The drill results at Kazandol South do not indicate that there is a similar continuity of the mineralization as at Kazandol North. The zone of mineralization at Kazandol South is much narrower, deeper and generally of lower grade than at Kazandol North. Surface exploration in this area however did identify greater primary copper mineralization, chalcopyrite and chalcocite, both copper sulphide minerals. The identification of these minerals indicates a potential deeper primary copper zone which could be the source of a near surface oxide copper zone.

The Kazandol project is located close to a major railroad which connects it to potential copper purchasers in Europe and to the major European port of Thessaloniki for export internationally. The rail also connects to two copper smelters which may be a source of acid for any potential SX-EW operation.

Quality Control and Quality Assurance

Reverse circulation drillhole cuttings were sampled every metre. The samples were split to a size of two kilograms at the drillsite overseen by EurOmax personnel. All samples were analyzed by EurOmax personnel on site using a Niton XL3t handheld XRF analyzer to determine which samples should be sent for assay. Samples with a grade of 1000 ppm copper or greater were sent to the SGS Chelopech laboratory in Bulgaria for preparation and assaying. SGS Chelopech follows SGS Global methods and procedures and has stringent quality control and assurance practices. Quality control samples, standards and blanks, are routinely submitted. Samples were assayed for copper by a 50 gram acid digest AAS finish.
