Recent geological data review and analyses suggest further exploration upside there.

Avrupa Minerals Ltd. (AVU:TSX.V; 8AM:FWB; AVPMF:OTC) commenced follow-up drilling on areas of copper-zinc mineralization it previously discovered at Sesmarias on its Alvalade project in south Portugal, it announced in a news release.

In the target area, the company will drill five to seven diamond drill holes over 2,500 meters (2,500m) to potentially enlarge and upgrade targets on three lenses of copper- and zinc-bearing massive sulfide mineralization: the 10 Lens, the 8 Lens and the 2 Lens.

The 10 Lens, 400m long by 30m wide, remains open to the south, to the north and to depth. The drill program now underway will test for extension of the mineralization to the north, the company stated.

The 8 Lens is the area between and encompassing the widely spaced drill holes SES008 and SES009. The possibility of another lens between these holes was suggested by recent geological data analysis and three-dimensional modeling work, according to Avrupa.

In the 2 Lens, noteworthy for higher grades, mineralization extensions are currently unknown.

Avrupa will fund this drilling campaign with capital from the $1.5 million private placement it announced in October 2018.
