Avrupa Begins Phase 3 Drilling on Alvalade Project, Southern Portugal

Avrupa Minerals Ltd. (AVU.V) today announced the start-up of the third phase of drilling at the Alvalade JV exploration project in southern Portugal. The project is operated by Avrupa Minerals and fully funded by Antofagasta Minerals, SA.

The joint venture anticipates drilling up to ten drill holes and approximately 4,500 to 5,000 meters in this phase of the project. The first part of the new program will target the Monte da Bela Vista area, where previous drilling by the joint venture intersected copper- and gold-bearing vein mineralization, and around the formerly-producing mines at Canal Caveira and Lousal.

Further drilling is also planned for several other areas along the Neves Corvo and Aljustrel target trends.
