Avrupa Minerals Chairman Mark Brown discusses what his company’s 2015 plans are. He also touches on how Avrupa’s share price was able to gain 25 percent in a year that’s been tough for many junior miners.
Prospect generator Avrupa Minerals (TSXV:AVU) has seen its share price rise about 275 percent this past year, an impressive accomplishment in what’s been a tough market for many junior miners. To find out how the company achieved that success, Resource Investing News spoke with Chairman Mark Brown at Cambridge House International’s 2015 Vancouver Resource Investment Conference.
He touched on Avrupa’s exciting December drill results from its Slivovo joint venture in Kosovo, noting “it was our first hole and we’ve got more coming.” He also highlighted the company’s other 2014 discovery in Portugal’s Iberian Pyrite Belt. “Our first hole there was 10 meters of 1.8 percent copper plus 4 percent zinc, 75 ppm silver plus 2 percent lead,” he said, adding, “we had two discoveries [in 2014], which is quite incredible.”
Looking forward to 2015, Brown said, “we’ve really switched from our Portugal focus a little bit. We’ll be doing a lot of work in Portugal as well, but we’re going to follow up on this Kosovo drill hole … we’ve got two more holes we’ve drilled and will be announced soon, and then we’ll have a few more drill holes following up on that. And so this will be a pretty exciting year for us with lots of results coming.”
