    TORONTO, May 4 /CNW/ - The board of directors of Silk Road Resources Ltd.
(TSX-V: SIL) ("Silk Road" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that,
effective April 30, 2009, the Board has reorganized itself for the forthcoming
business combination with EurOmax Resources Limited ("EurOmax"), as previously
announced, subject to approval of the transaction by the TSX Venture Exchange
and the respective shareholders of Silk Road and EurOmax. Robert Power is now
the Chair of the Board and will be the Chair of the combined Silk Road/EurOmax
board upon completion of the merger. Robert has been a Silk Road Board member
since 2007 and replaces David Bell who has been the Chair of the Board since
the inception of Silk Road. Allen Palmiere has resigned as the President and
Chief Executive Officer of Silk Road. David Bell will act as interim Chief
Executive Officer of Silk Road and John Menzies, the present Chief Executive
Officer of EurOmax, will continue on as Chief Executive Officer of the
combined company after completion of the merger.
    "I have appreciated the opportunity to be the Chair of the Board to
date," said David Bell. "With the EurOmax merger, Silk Road will be a new
company with expanded opportunities and prospects. I look forward to working
with Robert in his new role as Chair and with the new Board."
    "I am pleased to be able to carry on David's work and thank David for his
vision and contribution to Silk Road's success," said Robert Power. "I also
wish to thank Allen Palmiere for his years of service as Silk Road's CEO. As a
leader of one of the early foreign exploration companies in China, Allen
successfully led the operations in acquiring good quality properties for Silk
Road shareholders."
    Silk Road is in advanced discussions regarding the sale of one or more of
its China properties. Proceeds from a sale will go towards the merger process
and the ongoing operations.
