Avrupa Minerals Ltd. is a prospect generator focused on aggressive exploration in politically stable and prospective regions of Europe, including Portugal, Kosovo, and Germany.

Investment Highlights:

  • Nine licenses in three European countries: Portugal, Kosovo and Germany.
  • 2JV’s in Portugal; 1 JV in Kosovo.
  • Projects located in historic mining districts with existing or formerly-producing mines, often since pre-Roman times.
  • All areas have strong geological potential for discovery of further economic metal deposits.
  • Shareholder value created through development of project portfolio to joint venture or sell to larger mining-oriented companies.
  • For every C$ raised, Avrupa can spend more than C$1.50 on exploration due to JV partner funding.
  • Strong, dedicated management team with discovery track record and extensive experience from exploration to development.

Projects in Hand


6 licenses – 3,821 sq. km – 2 JV’s

Avrupa operates two joint ventures in Portugal:

  • The Alvalade JV, with Colt Resources Inc., covering some 900 sq. km in the Iberian Pyrite Belt of southern Portugal, for Cu-rich massive sulfide deposits – includes discovery of Sesmarias VMS mineralization.
  • The Covas JV, with Blackheath Resources, covering one license in northern Portugal for intrusion-related W deposits.
    • Blackheath announced the initial independent resource calculation at the Covas Tungsten Project, which is estimated to contain (using a cut-off grade of 0.10%):
      • 449,800 MTUs WO3 indicated mineral resource based on 1,081,000 tonnes at an average grade of 0.42% WO3
      • 767,100 MTUs WO3 inferred mineral resource based on 2,211,000 tonnes at an average grade of 0.35% WO3
  • The Company holds the Alvito Cu-Au license, covering approximately 853 sq. km in the Ossa Morena Zone of south Portugal, immediately adjoining the Pyrite Belt terrane. First priority work is underway at the Alcaçovas IOCG target. Drill target ready.
  • The Company holds the Marateca Cu-Zn project in the Iberian Pyrite Belt which is JV-ready. The Mertola and Santa Margarida do Sado Cu-Zn licenses, also located in the Pyrite Belt, have recently been issued to Avrupa.
  • Other licenses in the Pyrite Belt available for joint venture include the Mertola and Santa Margarida do Sado Cu-Zn properties. Developing drill targets at Mertola; discovered new gossan zone at Santa Margarida.


2 licenses – 47 sq. km – 1 JV

  • Licenses located in the historically prolific Vardar Zone, once one of Europe’s most important silver-lead-zinc districts.
  • Slivovo license (15.14 sq. km) – Slivovo JV agreement signed with Byrnecut International Ltd. (Australia); exploration work centered around the Peshter Gossan target – significant gold results for drill hole SLV004: 126.5 meters of 6.2 g/t Au.
  • Slivovo JV is rapidly advancing towards completion of pre-feasibility study (PFS). Drilling completed and a new, updated resource estimate underway. New targets discovered within the license boundaries.
  • Metovit license, formerly the Kamenica license, covers a porphyry mineral target, and is located in geological terrane similar to that of Slivovo; currently under review by potential joint venture partner.
  • Developing a new generative program for Kosovo; strategic partnership available.


1 license – 307 sq. km

  • Gold, tin and tungsten to be the focus of exploration in the Erzgebirge Mining District in the eastern German province of Saxony.
  • Potential for a new gold district with the target being large, bulk-tonnage deposits related to granitic intrusions similar to Fort Knox, Dublin Gulch, and others in the Tintina Gold Belt.
  • Avrupa and partner Beak Consultants are the only group in the area exploring for gold.
  • Funded more than € 140,000 of exploration work to earn-in to 85% of the Oelsnitz Project to form the Erzgebirge JV.

  • Avrupa and Colt Resources to re-start drilling at Sesmarias VMS target: 2-2,500 meters planned
  • At Alvito, exploration at Alcaçovas IOCG target has delineated a Candelaria-size target footprint
