EurOmax Resources (TSX-V: EOX) (“EurOmax”) has commenced a 4,000 metre, 53 hole reverse circulation (“RC”) program to evaluate the 5 kilometre long Kazandol copper zone.
Kazandol, in Macedonia, is one of several projects that EurOmax Resources is planning to test in 2010. The company has a mix of precious and base metal exploration projects in Bulgaria, Macedonia and Serbia.
“Drilling and mapping have now defined an extensive sub-horizontal copper zone in greenschist and granite above a thrust fault with un-mineralized granite in the lower thrust sheet,” the company reported. “This copper-bearing upper plate outcrops over an area of 800 metres by 800 metres at Kazandol North and has now been mapped in outcrop and with geochemistry over a strike of more than 5 kilometres to the south.”
EurOmax also highlighted that previous drilling at the northern end of the trend returned 47 metres averaging 0.6% copper.
“Drilling will commence at the southern end of the Kazandol copper zone where there is widespread malachite, tenorite and cuprite in outcrop associated with stockworked granite bodies.”
