Avrupa Minerals Begins Drilling at Covas Tungsten Project in Portugal

Avrupa Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:AVU,FWB:8AM) commenced a third phase of drilling at the Covas Tungsten Project. Avrupa is operator for the Covas Project as part of a joint venture agreement with Blackheath Resources (TSXV:BHR), with that company funding the project.

As quoted in the press release:

The second part of this program will be directed towards the Telheira target and other western Covas possibilities. Spring/early summer fieldwork in the western half of the Covas prospect, consisting of geological mapping, soil and rock sample geochemistry, and 17 line-kilometers of IP-Resistivity and Magnetics geophysical data collection, centered at Telheira and other nearby tungsten mineralization targets. Review and interpretation of the data is nearing completion, and the Company expects to be able to complete the drill targeting process with the placement of up to five more drill holes, totaling 200 to 400 meters. The top priority will be to expand the high grade Telheira mineralization, as well as test and upgrade several nearby, previously poorly- or un-tested mineral targets.

Avrupa president and CEO, Paul W. Kuhn, said:

It is exciting to get the third phase drilling campaign started, as we will be keying in on known high grade WO3 areas around the Covas prospect. The JV has put a lot of energy into upgrading the targets this year, with a strong surface exploration effort, and we are looking forward to positive results from Lapa Grande, Castelo, and Telheira, in particular.
