Avrupa Minerals Reports Assays, Plans 4,000 Meters of Drilling

- March 18th, 2015

Avrupa Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:AVU) announced its assay results from holes SLV007 and SLV008 at the Slivovo JV project in Kosovo. Highlights of the results include 13.05 meters at 1.78 g/t gold and 18.88 g/t silver in SLV007 and 2.65 meters at 1.06 g/t gold from SLV008. The company also outlined its plan for 4,000 meters of drilling in the Gossan zone.

Avrupa Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:AVU) announced its assay results from holes SLV007 and SLV008 at the Slivovo JV project in Kosovo. Highlights of the results include 13.05 meters at 1.78 g/t gold and 18.88 g/t silver in SLV007 and 2.65 meters at 1.06 g/t gold from SLV008. The company also outlined its plan for 4,000 meters of drilling in the Gossan zone.

As quoted in the press release:

Holes SLV007 and SLV008 were drilled in the southwest extension of the Pester Gossan, located about 200 meters south of SLV004. SLV007 was drilled to a depth of 97.4 meters at a dip angle of -55 degrees through sediments to 70 meters depth and then through intrusive rocks (possibly a parallel-to-sedimentary-bedding sill) to the final 97.4-meter depth. SLV008 was drilled to a depth of 183.6 meters at a dip angle of -85 degrees (nearly vertical). Much of the rock in this hole was intrusive sill material, as in the bottom of SLV007. The follow-up detailed review of the drill core now indicates that both drill holes were drilled more or less along the strike of the sedimentary rocks and intrusive sill material.

SLV007 contained an intercept of 13.05 meters (from 16.00 to 29.05 meters) with an average gold value of 1.78 g/t Au, within a longer intercept of 53.6 meters (from 16.00 to 69.6 meters) with an average gold value of 0.91 g/t Au. Further sampling of this hole is in process, as the core contained anomalous gold all the way down to the bottom of the sampling interval.

SLV008 contained narrow intervals of strongly anomalous gold, including 2.65 meters (from 75.00 to 77.65 meters) with an average gold value of 1.06 g/t, within a much wider zone of gold anomalism. This hole will be re-sampled, as well, given the information obtained from the assays. Sampling of the intrusive sill rocks (from 89.60 to 183.60 meters) indicated low-moderate anomalism (up to 500-840 ppb) in gold values throughout the sill.

Paul W. Kuhn, president and CEO of Avrupa, commented:

We continue to be excited by the potential for significant gold mineralization at the Slivovo project. As we now better understand the geological and structural parameters, we will be more able to properly place the drill collars and set the direction of the drilling in the main Pester Gossan Zone. We are also excited about the presence of gold in the SW extension of the Gossan Zone and are looking forward to results from the upcoming drilling programs.
