I wonder how the drilling is going...

Odyssey Resources begins drilling at Tavsan

2004-11-10 14:29 ET - News Release

Mr. Avrom Howard reports

Odyssey Resources Ltd. has begun diamond drilling at the Tavsan gold project this week. For a map of the project area and details of the drill hole locations, please visit

There are two primary objectives in the current drilling program. The first is to provide sufficient infill data within the Main zone. The second is to test a chain of seven zones of gold-bearing jasperoid that lie on surface between the Main zone and the End zone, over two kilometres to the northeast. The ultimate objective is to outline sufficient potential tonnage to justify moving forward with an independent resource estimate and prefeasibility study.

Tavsan, located in western Turkey roughly 60 kilometres northeast of Eldorado Gold's Kisladag gold deposit, is a sediment-hosted bulk-tonnage gold target hosting a historical resource of 11,612,391 tonnes with average grade of 1.01 grams per tonne (see news in Stockwatch Aug. 11, 2004).

A quality control program consisting of randomly inserted duplicate and standard check samples will ensure accurate and reliable results in this program. All drill core will be sealed and transported to the company's secure core storage facility near the property. Samples will be analyzed by ISO 9002-certified ALS Chemex in Vancouver, with sample preparation completed by ALS's laboratory in Turkey.

Drill results will be released upon completion of the program.

Avrom E. Howard, PGeo, is the qualified person for this project under the terms of National Instrument 43-101.
