Karavansalija copper-gold acquisition completed, drilling commenced



    VANCOUVER, June 9 /CNW/ - EurOmax Resources Limited (TSX-V: EOX)
("EurOmax") is pleased to announce the completion of a 43-101 report, the
receipt of regulatory approval for and closing of the acquisition from
Freeport-McMoRan Exploration Corporation ("FMEC") of the Karavansalija
property. Drilling on this property has commenced.
    The Karavansalija property covers a 60 square kilometre alteration zone
and two well defined mineralized centres have produced encouraging results
including, 166 metres at 1% copper equivalent including 62 metres at
1.7% copper equivalent, 194 metres at 0.9% copper equivalent, 115 metres at
1.4 grams per tonnes gold and in one hole 42 metres at 3.1 grams per tonne
gold followed by 99 metres at 0.4% nickel, 0.03% cobalt and 0.55 grams per
tonne gold.
    Drilling will focus initially on the Karavansalija Mineralized Centre
(KMC) which covers an area of roughly 12 square kilometers where carbonates
and strongly altered volcanics are intruded by a wide quartz latite dyke
swarm. Central to the KMC is a coincident gravity, magnetic and topographic
anomaly covering approximately 4 square kilometers. Strong lead and copper
soil geochemical anomalies largely surround this feature and are often related
to ancient mining activity. Skarn mineralization is widespread in outcrop and
the subsurface possibly forming mantos around an unexposed intrusion.
    The first drill hole has commenced on the volcanic hosted gold and the
underlying silica-breccia mineralisation. In this area previous drilling
reported some encouraging results including: 42 meters from surface grading
3.1 grams per tonne gold including 28 meters grading 4.37 grams per tonne gold
and 99 metres grading 0.4% nickel, 0.03% cobalt and 0.55 grams per tonnes
gold. The objective is to test a strong IP-low resistivity feature which was
only partially tested by previous drilling and is interpreted to be an
intrusive breccia, 400 metres wide extending to the vertical limits of the
survey - approximately 600 metres.

    Acquisition Terms

    EurOmax has acquired an option to acquire a 100% interest in the
Karavanslija property by the payment to FMEC of USD50,000, and issuing
2,500,000 shares. In order to exercise the option EurOmax must complete an
exploration program over 3 years including 4,400 meters of drilling at the
direction of FMEC. FMEC retains a one-time only back in-right after Euromax
has completed 20,000m drilling, wherein FMEC may elect to earn a 70% interest
by completing a feasibility study and paying to EurOmax a 1% net smelter
royalty ("NSR"). If FMEC does not exercise its back-in right, EurOmax shall
pay to FMEC a 1% NSR.

    Quality Control and Assurance

    All of the work reported in this press release was undertaken by FMEC's
Serbian subsidiary. Samples were assayed at Eurotest Control AD and American
Assay Laboratories both ISO 9001 accredited laboratories. The Company believes
these results to be reliable and understands that quality control standards
and blanks were used.
    Copper and gold equivalent calculations use metal prices of USD 1.25/lb
copper and USD 550/oz gold. Adjustment factors for differences in relative
metallurgical recoveries for gold and copper have not been be considered and
metallurgical recoveries and net smelter returns are assumed to be 100%.

    Independent Report

    The independent 43-01 report is available of the company's website and on
SEDAR.
