EurOmax commences diamond drilling to test Trun high grade gold results


VANCOUVER, Nov. 19 /CNW/ - EurOmax Resources Limited (TSX-V: EOX) ("EurOmax") is pleased to announce the commencement of a 1,000 meter diamond drilling program to test high grade trench results on the Trun gold project in Bulgaria.

The 2009 EurOmax exploration program is focused on delineating the distribution of higher grade mineralization with detailed mapping, prospecting and trenching. This work has identified a poorly exposed 500 meter by 300 meter zone of widespread higher grade gold mineralization at Logo. Four parallel higher grade zones up to 500 meters long have been mapped. The four zones range from 5 to 35 meters in width and all strike at 55 degress and dip steeply. Previous drilling had been drilled oblique to the strike of this zone and had failed to test the higher grade mineralization.

EurOmax trench results are tabled below:

Mapping and prospecting in the Zlata area in the southern portion of the licence has identified a large area of ancient gold-silver workings, called Jamkite, which remains undrilled. The workings at Jamkite have been mapped over a strike of more than 1,200 meters and a width of up to 150 metres. Sampling of waste dump material has reported numerous high grade results up to 25.8 g/t gold, 442 g/t silver and strongly elevated base metals.

Quality Control and Assurance

Trench and rock chip samples 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 screen fire assay with a four acid digest with an AAS finish. Historic drillhole results reported herein were undertaken at EuroTest Control AD an ISO9001 accredited facility in Bulgaria. Quality control standards and blanks were routinely included.
