Avrupa Minerals Reports on Covas Tungsten Project, NW Portugal

Avrupa Minerals Ltd. (AVU.V) today reported on further progress at the Covas Tungsten Joint Venture exploration program in NW Portugal. The project is operated by Avrupa, and funded by Blackheath Resources Inc.

Phase 1 of the exploration program at Covas is now complete. The program successfully confirmed and tested known skarn-related mineral occurrences and extensions, as well as new targets. Work in Phase 1 included re-interpretation of historic magnetic data, completion of a gravity survey in the Covas Dome area, as well as geological mapping, rock sampling, and a total of 1,606 meters of core drilling in 15 completed drill holes in five separate target areas.

Highlights of the recent drilling program included previously-reported intercepts of high grade tungsten mineralization, particularly 2.11% WO3 over 7.98 meters starting at a depth of 44.57 meters in Hole CO 7/12 at the Telheira target and 1.56% WO3 over 11.40 meters starting at a depth of 52.70 meters in Hole CO 13/12 at the Lapa Grande target
