Euromax Announces New Mineral Resource Estimate for Trun Project-Drilling Update for Ilovitza

24.05.2013  |  Marketwired

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/24/13 -- Euromax Resources Ltd. 24 May 2013 (TSX VENTURE: EOX)(OTCQX: EOXFF): ("Euromax" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a new mineral resource estimate for its 100% controlled Trun Project in Bulgaria and to provide a drilling update on its Ilovitza project in Macedonia.

New Trun Project Resource Estimate

The Trun project comprises six vein sets: Logo, Ruy, Nadeja, KD, Zlata and K2. The mineralisation is characteristic of intrusive related gold. The vein sets are hosted by granite intrusions with the exception of the Logo vein system which is hosted within schistose country rocks.

Independent consultants, Tetra Tech, have carried out the mineral resource estimate on behalf of the Company and categorise all resources as Inferred using the Canadian Institute of Mining ("CIM") classification. The new Trun technical report, 'Resource Estimate on the Trun Project, Bulgaria', has been filed on SEDAR and the resource estimate can be summarised as follows:

Target Tonnage Au (g/t) Ag (g/t) Au (oz) Ag (oz)
Logo (1) 9,360,000 1.12 4.33 334,000 1,297,000
Ruy (2) 940,000 1.30 - 39,000 -
Nadejda (2) 380,000 1.40 - 17,000 -
KD (1) 3,900,000 0.63 45.41 78,000 5,667,000
Zlata (3) 1,240,000 1.01 26.50 40,000 1,050,000
K2 ((2)) 230,000 1.03 - 8,000 -
Total 1,605,0000 516,000 8,014,000
1. The resources at KD and Logo have been estimated above a $36.00 /t cut-
2. The resources at Nadejda, Ruy and K2 have been estimated based above a
0.8 g/t Au cut-off.
3. The resources at Zlata have been estimated above a $52.00 /t cut-off.
Cut-off grades and dollar equivalents are based upon three year trailing
average metal prices as of the 18th February 2013. The metal prices used are
$1,507.00 /oz Au and $29.24 /oz Ag. At this stage a 100% recovery of both
silver and gold has been assumed. The dollar equivalent ($eq) is calculated
using the following formula: $eq = (Au grade x Au price x 0.035) + (Ag grade
x Ag price x 0.035).

Key Assumptions used to estimate the minerals resources are:

-- The mineral resources have been estimated into a three dimensional block
model, with the mineralised zones defined by wireframed solid models;

-- The interpolation of the metal grades was undertaken using ordinary

-- Preliminary concepts of mining support the resource estimates and
demonstrate that the deposits have reasonable prospects for economic

-- Single density values were applied to each mineralised zone based upon
the arithmetic mean of 119 density test results.

These estimates have an effective date of 26 March 2013. The last data included in the estimate was received on the 3rd of December 2012. The resources have been estimated by Mr. Robert Davies, Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.), European Geologist (EurGeol), Chartered Geologist (CGeol), supervised by Mr. Simon McCracken, Bachelor of Applied Science (BAppsSC), Member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (MAIG), Fellow of the Geological Society (FGS).

Tetra Tech also recommends a two phase drilling programme to further explore vein sets which form potential extensions to the resources highlighted in their estimate. Two particular vein set areas are proposed for additional drilling:

Nadejda Northeast - The proposed drilling will investigate a panel area of approximately 22,000m2, around the following drilling intercepts:

Hole ID From To Length Au
(m) (m) (m) (g/t)
TC1178 387.5 394.4 6.9 8.47
including 390.0 394.4 4.4 13.11

Zlata South - The proposed drilling will investigate a panel area of approximately 22,000m2, around the following drilling intercepts:

Hole ID Approximate Depth Length Au
(m) (m) (g/t)
C615 180 10.6 8.18
C4 180 1.0 137.2
C5 250 1.3 12.1

Further drilling is planned in order to define mineral resources in these and other areas of extension. Tetra Tech's phased drill programme proposal has the definition of resources in phase one at a cost of $606,000. For phase two, Tetra Tech has recommended an infill drilling campaign to locally improve the resource confidence, which may allow the resource classification to be upgraded. The proposed phase two drilling campaign has been costed at $2.4 million.

The Trun property is currently the subject of a Commercial Discovery Certificate application in Bulgaria. The application was made in July 2012 and formally accepted in November 2012. Bulgarian regulations required the application be accompanied by an estimate of resources using the Bulgarian system of classification and as such included veins which would not meet CIM resource classification requirements such as those highlighted for further drilling in the Tetra Tech report. Once the Certificate is granted and further drilling is allowed, it is the Company's intention to drill these zones.

Ilovitza Step-Out Drilling

Following completion of infill drilling aimed at increasing resource confidence levels at the Company's Ilovitza copper-gold porphyry project in Macedonia (see press release dated 21 March 2013), five drill sites were selected for step-out drilling to increase the coverage of the mineralisation on a nominal 100m spaced drill grid. The drill holes were located to the west, northeast and east of the main area of drilling and are shown on the appended drill plan. Drilling results have now been received for the six holes and can be summarised as follows:

DH No. Depth Azimut Dip
(m) (Degrees) (Degrees) Cut off 0.50 g/t AuEq
From To Length Au Cu
(m) (m) (m) (g/t) (%)
EOIC 1357 350.1 - 90 178.0 350.1 172.1 0.99 0.35
EOIC 1358 276.0 - 90 249.0 276.0 26.8 0.35 0.18
EOIC 1359 398.4 - 90 336.0 357.0 21.0 0.33 0.21
EOIC 1360 360.0 270 60 0.0 164.0 164.0 0.24 0.32
EOIC 1361 267.2 90 60 180.0 224.5 44.5 0.31 0.28
EOIC 1362 406.5 - 90 62.0 116.5 54.5 0.36 0.18
and 406.5 - 90 140.5 305.3 164.8 0.90 0.35
Note: Intercepts identified using a 0.5 g/t gold equivalent cut-off, maximum
10 metres internal waste allowed.

Patrick Forward, Euromax COO, said of the results: "The Trun resource estimate demonstrates that all the recognised vein sets at the Trun project have mineralisation which is potentially economic and the recommendations of the report demonstrate that further resources can be targeted. The drilling at Ilovitza has effectively constrained the mineralisation to the west and northeast whilst showing a zone of above average grade to the east which remains open down plunge. We are excited by the future exploration potential of the Trun project and satisfied that progress at our flagship Ilovitza project remains on course for a pre-feasibility study later in the year."

Sampling, Analyses and Quality Assurance and Control ("QA/QC")

Drill hole orientations were surveyed at approximately 50 metre intervals. Samples were collected by the Company's geologists in compliance with the Company's standard procedures and in accordance with accepted industry best practice. Samples were collected as half HQ or NQ diamond drill core through the mineralised intervals at three metre lengths and occasionally to a maximum of 4.5 metres to reflect geological boundaries. At the Euromax Strumica sample preparation lab, the half core sample is reduced to -2 millimetre and two 200-gramme samples are split from the whole. One 200-gramme sample is submitted to the Eurotest Control EAD Laboratory (ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 17025 accredited) in Sofia, Bulgaria, for sample preparation, comprising pulverisation to 95% -75 microns, and analysis. Gold analyses were carried out using the fire assay technique with an AAS finish on 30-gramme aliquots. Copper was analysed using AES ICP methods. In addition to the laboratory's internal QA/QC procedures, the Company conducted its own QA/QC with the systematic inclusion of field duplicate samples, blank samples and certified reference samples. The analytical results from the Company's quality control samples have been evaluated and demonstrated to be within acceptable industry standard variances.
