Avrupa Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:AVU,FWB:8AM) provided an update on the progress and status of exploration on the Slivovo JV project in Kosovo. 1,615 meters of trenching has been completed, and a 2,000 meter drill program is set to start in mid-September.
As quoted in the press release:
Avrupa geologists continue to work around two primary targets on the property, including a gold/silver/lead/zinc-bearing gossan, and an epithermal gold-polymetallic target located about one kilometer away. In addition, work in the field is in the process of adding several new zones of interest, all requiring further follow-up. In total, since the project re-started in April, nearly 1,300 rock and soil samples have been collected, and 1,615 meters of trenches excavated for sampling and geological mapping purposes. Returning results are guiding the target definition and assisting in the planning for a 2,000 meter drill program to start in mid-September.
