Avrupa Minerals Ltd. (AVU:TSX.V; AVPMF:OTC; 8AM:FSE) announced in a news release that the recent drill results from its Sesmarias project in southern Portugal demonstrate significant additional potential to upgrade the known mineralized system there.
The drill program, which consisted of six holes totaling 2,498 meters (2,498m), explored new areas and "confirmed a new exploration and mineralization model for the district," the release noted.
The findings included intersection of mineralization in hole SES026 consisting of 28.95m of 0.48% copper and 0.77 gram per ton gold. This hole also extended the 10 lens to the north by 300 meters, taking its dimensions to 600m long by 300m wide by 25m thick. SES026 also identified possible new mineralization above the 10 lens, which both holes SES027 and SES029 also intercepted.
Hole SES028, under the 8 lens, hit the border of a significant feeder zone stockwork that revealed anomalous gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc mineralization throughout its entire length, from 373.4m to 460.8m in depth. This further "supports that the Sesmarias system is a robust mineralizing event," President and CEO Paul Kuhn said in the release.
Finally, results confirmed the high-grade 2 lens is a "fault-bounded fragment of massive sulphide mineralization"; its origin has not yet been determined.
