VANCOUVER, Feb. 13 /CNW/ - EurOmax Resources Limited (TSX-V: EOX)
("EurOmax") is pleased to announce that joint venture partner Teck Cominco
Limited has approved the Phase 1 2008 exploration program for Trun. The
planned program will include 4,000 metres of reverse circulation and 1000
metres of diamond drilling plus 20 line kilometres of geophysics (IP,
resistivity and magnetics).
Two large Intrusion Related Gold systems are being explored at Trun: Big
Hill and K2.
Big Hill Intrusion
At Big Hill a 4,200 sample soil geochemistry program defined numerous
high order anomalies within and around the 2 by 4 kilometre intrusion.
Drilling of geochemical targets in 2007 produced encouraging results at the
Logo prospect, including:
- 138 metres grading 0.8 g/t gold including 41 metres grading 1.6 g/t
gold to bottom of hole TC 726,
- 120 metres grading 0.6 g/t gold including 16 metres grading 1.8 g/t
gold and 15 metres grading 0.1% WO(3) in TC 719,
- 17 metres grading 0.3% WO(3) in TC 722 and
- 90 metres grading 0.5 g/t gold, 42 metres grading 0.1% WO(3) and
50 metres grading 0.1% WO(3) in TC 725.
Trenching along the western side of the intrusion at the 744 prospect has
reported 20.5 metres grading 4.3 g/t Au, including 10.2 metres grading 8.3 g/t
A 30 line kilometre geophysical program completed in 2007 defined a 600
metres by 1500 metres zone of low resistivity and weak chargeability at Logo
consistent with the drill results. This geophysical target is significantly
larger than the drilled area and open at depth.
At Big Hill West a very strong sub-horizontal resistivity feature with
moderate chargeability and with a coincident high order geochemical anomaly
covers an area of 2 kilometres by 1 kilometre. This feature is modeled as a
2000 metre by 1000 metre massive silica zone at the top of an unexposed
intrusion at shallow depth. This geophysical anomaly correlates well with the
geological and geochemical results and appears to be related to the highest
The planned program at Big Hill will include diamond and reverse
circulation drillholes to further define the Logo mineralisation and to test
the 744 and Nadejda high grade gold targets and the large Big Hill West
Exploration at K2 has focused on a well mineralised intrusion covering 4
kilometres by 2 kilometres. There are widespread ancient workings and two
large open pits from modern times. At the K2 intrusion in 2004-5 EurOmax
trenching encountered results including:
- 40 metres of 4.3g/t gold and 257g/t silver;
- 10 metres of 6.2g/t gold and 32g/t silver;
- 24 metres of 3.56g/t gold and 18.5 g/t silver;
- 9.5 metres of 4.82g/t gold; 22.4 metres of 4.2g/t gold, and,
- 27 metres of 2.97g/t gold.
Follow-up drilling reported results including 108 metres at 0.8 g/t gold
and 18 metres of 1 g/t gold and 163 g/t silver.
The planned program at K2 will include 20 line kilometres of geophysics
(IP, resistivity and magnetics) and drilling of geochemical targets.
Teck Cominco Limited ("Teck Cominco") has the option to earn a 55%
interest in the Trun property by spending C$3 million over 4 years. Upon Teck
Cominco earning its initial 55% interest, it has the option to increase its
interest to 70% by spending an additional C$10 million on the property.
John Menzies, Chairman and CEO of EurOmax commented, "This is going to be
an exciting year for us at Trun. By far the most interesting target is
Big Hill West. It is a large geophysical feature with very high
resistivity and coincident geochemistry. It is potentially the source of
the high grade gold mineralisation at Nadejda and 744 and the wide gold-
tungsten stockwork at Logo. We are very pleased to have Teck Cominco as a
partner - they have brought great value to the exploration of this

Quality control and Quality Assurance
Trench and drillhole assaying was done at the Eurotest AD laboratory in
Sofia, Bulgaria, an ISO9001 accredited facility. Reported soil geochemistry
was undertaken at a similarly accredited laboratory, American Assay
Laboratories in Sparks, Nevada. Quality control samples, standards and blanks,
were routinely submitted with drillhole samples. Gold was assayed by a 50 gram
fire assay with an AAS finish while other elements were assayed by acid
