EurOmax discovers oxide-copper zone at Kazandol project in Macedonia

    VANCOUVER, June 19 /CNW/ - EurOmax Resources Limited (TSX-V: EOX) is
pleased to announce the results of diamond drilling at the Kazandol
oxide-copper project in Macedonia including 47 metres at 0.6% copper from
    Drilling and mapping (see attached map at have
now defined an extensive sub-horizontal copper zone in greenschists above a
thrust fault with un-mineralized granite in the lower thrust sheet. This
copper-bearing upper plate outcrops over an area of 800 metres by 800 metres
and is believed to extend up to 5 kilometres to the south beneath a wide zone
of elevated copper geochemistry. See attached map and section.

    John Menzies, Chairman and CEO commented "prior to this phase of drilling
    the distribution of mineralization was difficult to understand but the
    application of a simple thrust geometry readily explains the distribution
    of mineralization and highlights the obvious potential."

    Copper mineralization is restricted to the upper plate greenschists and
occurs predominantly as the oxide copper minerals tenorite and malachite.
    Results of the five holes drilled to date are:

    - EOKC 801: 23 metres at 0.11% copper, from 0.0 to 23.0m;
    - EOKC 802: 21 metres at 0.15% copper, from 28.3 to 49.8m
    - EOKC 803: 47 metres at 0.59% copper, from 0.0 to 47.1m;
    - EOKC 804: 27 metres at 0.54% copper, from 24.0 to 51.0m.
    - EOKC 805: 20 metres at 0.23% copper from 0.0m

    Previously reported trenching across the upper plate rocks has produced
wide intercepts including 210 metres at 0.4% copper, 200 metres at 0.3% copper
and 175 metres at 0.4% copper. The upper plate rocks show widespread and
consistent copper-oxide mineralization. Additional shallow vertical drilling
is planned to better define the extent of outcropping mineralization at
Kazandol North and below thin cover to the south.
    EurOmax is exploring the property for oxide copper mineralization which
could be amenable to low cost Solvent Extraction Electro-winning (SX-EW)
technology. The Kazandol property is crossed by a regional power transmission
line and paved roads. It is only 25 kilometres from a rail terminal. The
Kazandol North target is positioned along a steep 1.5 kilometre long ridge
with up to 100 metres relief above the surrounding terrain.

    Quality control and Quality Assurance

    Diamond drillhole samples are cut and crushed at a sample preparation
facility in Macedonia overseen by EurOmax personnel. Assays are undertaken at
Eurotest AD laboratory in Sofia, Bulgaria, an ISO9001 accredited facility.
Quality control samples, standards and blanks, are routinely submitted. Copper
is assayed by a 50 gram acid digest AAS finish.
