Avrupa Minerals Ltd. (AVU:TSX.V; AVPMF:OTC: 8AM:FSE) announced in a news release it has finished drilling the seventh phase, or six holes totaling 2,498 meters, at Sesmarias, on the Alvalade license, in Portugal.
According to the company, "the program continues to be highly successful, accomplishing goals of better technical understanding of the Sesmarias mineralizing system and significantly enlarging it. Sampling of the drill core is ongoing, with full assay results expected by the end of February."
The program afforded "a much higher degree of predictability in location of mineralization" and expanded it "significantly," the release noted.
Visual results showed the 10 Lens to be larger, at least 600m long, up to 400m wide and 25m thick, and revealed above it a stockwork-stringer sulfide zone. Drilling also identified the footwall feeder zone stockwork for the 8 Lens and the edge of the 2 Lens/Horizon. Mineralization remains open to the east and west.
Complete assay results should be available by the end of February, the company noted.
