EurOmax Intercepts 345 Metres at 0.24% Copper and 0.32 Grams Per Tonne Gold at Ilovitza

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 2, 2011) - EurOmax Resources Ltd. (TSXVENTURE:EOX)(PINK SHEETS:EOXFF) ("EurOmax" or "the Company") is pleased to announce additional results from its 2011 diamond drill program at its Ilovitza Copper-Gold Porphyry Project in Macedonia.

Results include 345 metres at 0.24% copper and 0.32 grams per tonne gold including 153 metres at 0.30% copper and 0.45 grams per tonne gold in drill hole EOIC-1126. Drill hole EOIC-1126 closes a 200-metre-wide gap with no drilling in the southwest quadrant of the porphyry and clearly demonstrates good continuity and consistent grades in this area.

Summary of results:

Drill hole EOIC-1126 was drilled vertically to a depth of 545.1 metres in the southwestern quadrant of the deposit (see map). It intersected 32 metres of oxide mineralization grading 0.43 grams per tonne gold from surface followed by sulfide mineralization grading 0.22% copper and 0.28 grams per tonne gold over 465 metres including 345 metres at 0.24% copper and 0.32 grams per tonne gold and including 153 metres at 0.30% copper and 0.45 grams per tonne gold.

Drill hole EOIC-1127, also vertical, was drilled near the southern margin of the deposit and encountered 413.6 metres of sulfide mineralization grading 0.19% copper and 0.20 grams per tonne gold.

Drill hole EOIC-1128, is a recently completed vertical hole collared approximately 100 metres east of drill hole EOIC-1125 and drilled to a depth of 635 metres. Assay results from this hole are expected back by the end of the year.

Weighted averages are used to calculate all reported intervals.
A $1,200/oz Au price and $3/lb Cu price were used to calculate copper equivalent and gold equivalent grades using the conversion 1 g/t Au = 0.583% Cu and assuming 100% metallurgical recovery.

Ownership of the Property:

EurOmax exercised an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Ilovitza property from a major international mining company, subject to a back-in right that must be exercised within 90 days of a 10,000 metre drilling commitment being met. This drilling commitment has now been realized, and the major international mining company has until January 23, 2012, to either relinquish all interests in this property or to acquire a 70% interest in the property. If the back-in right is exercised, EurOmax will receive a payment of two times EurOmax's expenditures on the property (approximately $3 million to date) and the major international mining company will agree to carry EurOmax's 30% interest through to completion of a final feasibility study.

"Not only are we pleased with continued good drill results from Ilovitza, we are looking forward to resolution on our ownership interest in this project," comments Dr. Quinton Hennigh, technical advisor to the Company.

Quality Control and Quality Assurance

Diamond drill hole samples were logged, cut and sampled by EurOmax personnel at the Company's sample preparation facility in Macedonia. Samples were also prepared at the sample preparation facility and submitted to Eurotest Control in Sofia, Bulgaria for assay. Eurotest Control is an ISO 9001 certified laboratory, which follows internationally accepted methods and procedures and has stringent quality control and assurance practices. Dr. Roger Moss, the qualified person for Ilovitza, has visited the laboratory of Eurotest Control and is satisfied that the sample preparation and analytical procedure is consistent with industry best practice. Gold was assayed by a 50 gram fire assay with an AAS finish, and copper was assayed by acid digest ICP-AES. Quality control samples, including duplicates, standards and blanks, were submitted with each sample batch by EurOmax.

Roger Moss, Ph.D., P.Geo., a member of the EurOmax Technical Advisory Board and a "qualified person" as defined by NI 43-101, supervised the preparation of the technical information contained in this news release.
