Dear Shareholders, Friends, and Potential Investors in Avrupa Minerals:
Recently we put out a news release outlining progress at the Alvalade Copper/Zinc Project in Portugal.
At the time, we had completed two drill holes and started a third. The news, while overall strongly positive, did not yet include bell-ringer results. We are, of course, looking forward to those sorts of results, but in the meantime, with FULL support from our partner Minas de Aguas Teñidas, SA (MATSA), the Project moves ahead.
I discuss that in an interview with Stockhouse that may be found at the following link:
Since the NR, we have completed the third hole and are just about done with the fourth one, all in the vicinity of the original SES-008 massive sulfide intercept. The geology is complicated with the target horizon strongly folded, and later modified by post-massive-sulfide-deposition faulting, but MATSA has a great deal of experience in these conditions, and sees the strong potential in our work. There are many similarities at Sesmarias to their namesake Aguas Teñidas deposit in Spain, and they understand all these complexities. Their knowledge, experience, and support will help us develop the project long-term.
The results of the VTEM geophysical survey finally came back this past week, and we are just beginning to have a look at the anomalism, both new and old targets out there. There will be plenty to do on the exploration front, along with our work in the Sesmarias area.
The Critical Investor had a look at us last month after our news release. Another positive report on the progress on the Alvalade JV. Here’s the link to that report:
There’s a lot to like in what we are doing at Alvalade. And here, we all think that this basic groundwork will lead to something really special. We will continue to update you all and the rest of the exploration community as progress requires. We look forward to your participation and support of the Company’s continued recovery in the coming months.
On behalf of the Board,
“Paul W. Kuhn”
