EurOmax Provides Update on Its Trun Property in Bulgaria

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2012) - EurOmax Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:EOX) (PINKSHEETS:EOXFF) ("EurOmax" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on recent drilling results and the Commercial Discovery Application at its 100% controlled Trun Project in Bulgaria.

Trun Drilling Highlights

Since the last set of results was announced (see May 7, 2012 press release), recent drilling has helped to define the size of the Ruy and Nadejda zones at Big Hill as well as to demonstrate continuity of the KD zone at Little Hill to a vertical depth of 150 meters.

"We are very pleased to have all assays from our drill program at Trun in hand and we have now submitted an application for a commercial discovery certificate with the government of Bulgaria", states Steve Sharpe, President & CEO.

Big Hill (Northern Area of Trun Property)

A total of twenty diamond core holes were completed at Big Hill, four testing the Ruy Zone, eight at Nadejda and eight at the Tumba target.

At Nadejda, the most significant intercept is 47.5 meters at 1.45 grams per tonne gold including 10.3 meters at 4.84 grams per tonne gold in hole TC12157. Drilling at Nadejda has now defined a north-northeast trending nearly vertical zone approximately 200 meters long. Mineralization starts at or near surface and extends to depths of approximately 150 meters. The higher grade core of this zone appears to plunge moderately to the southwest at about 40 degrees. The zone is widest at its northeast end where it is approximately 40 meters across, and narrows as it continues southwestward.

Holes TC12170 and TC12173 extended the strike length of the Ruy Zone by approximately 150 meters. The most significant intercept from the four holes here is 59.6 meters at 0.71 grams per tonne gold including 17 meters at 1.8 grams per tonne gold in hole TC12170. Hole TC12173 encountered 4 shorter intervals of similar grade mineralization. The north-northwest trending Ruy Zone is approximately 300 meters long and 100 meters deep and appears to dip steeply northeast. It is widest in the central part where it is approximately 60 meters across and narrows at each end.

Eight drill holes at the Tumba target failed to encounter high grade near surface veins targeted there. Although hole TC12159 encountered a short, isolated intercept of gold mineralization, evidence for near-surface disseminated mineralization is also lacking in these drill holes. Previous drilling intersected 4.14 grams per tonne gold over 9m from 315 meters and 7.34 grams per tonne gold over 8 meters from 387.15 meters in hole MTC1178 (see August 23, 2011 news release) suggesting that Tumba gold mineralization is at a deeper level. This deeper mineralization has yet to be systematically tested and remains open.

Most of the core was HQ size, although six holes also had NQ size core form the deeper portion of the holes. All intersections shown are down hole lengths as true widths are not accurately known. Grades of the intervals are calculated on a weighted average basis.

Little Hill (Southern Area of Trun Property)

Two diamond core holes were completed at the KD Zone at Little Hill. Both holes encountered significant mineralization. Hole TC12178 intersected 19.7 meters at 1.32 grams per tonne gold and 23.3 grams per tonne silver, and hole TC12176 encountered five intervals of gold mineralization the longest of which is 9.1 meters at 0.97 grams per tonne gold. These holes demonstrate that the central part of the north trending, east dipping KD Zone is mineralized to depths of approximately 150 meters.

The drill core of the two holes included both HQ and NQ size core. All intersections shown are down hole lengths as true widths are not accurately known. Grades of the intervals are calculated on a weighted average basis.

Update on Drilling and Commercial Discovery Application

EurOmax has completed its drill campaign at Trun. Approximately 5,880 meters of diamond core were drilled since the beginning of the year and assays for all drill holes have now been received.

The Company has now submitted a commercial discovery certificate application for Trun following the same process as for the Breznik commercial discovery certificate application that was submitted in 2011.

Quality Control and Quality Assurance

Drill core was logged, cut and sampled by EurOmax personnel at the Company's sample preparation facility in Bulgaria. 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. Dr. Roger Moss, the qualified person for Trun, has visited the SGS Chelopech facilities and is satisfied that the sample preparation and assay procedures are consistent with industry best practices.

Gold was assayed by fire assay followed by atomic absorption (FA/AA) and silver by ICP-AES with overlimit (> 10g/t Ag) assayed by atomic absorption. Quality control samples, including duplicates, standards and blanks, were submitted by EurOmax.

Roger Moss, Ph.D., P.Geo., a member of the EurOmax Technical Advisory Board and a "qualified person" as defined by NI43-101, supervised the preparation of the technical information contained in this news release and has reviewed and approved the disclosure of the exploration information in the news release.
