Avrupa Minerals Ltd reported on drilling results at its 100%-owned Sesmarias Prospect, located on the Alvalade license in the Pyrite Belt of south Portugal. This program explored new sectors of the Sesmarias Prospect and confirmed a new exploration and mineralization model for the District. The Company completed six holes totaling 2,498 meters and reported on successful progress in an earlier news release, dated February 11, 2019.

Highlights from the program include the following results:
SES026 intercepted 28.95 meters of 0.48% copper, 0.77 g/t gold, 15.7 ppm silver, 0.52% lead and 1.31% zinc.
SES026 extended the "10" Lens by 300 meters to the north from previous drilling.
The “10” Lens is now at 600 meters x 300 meters x 25 meters.

Mise-a-la-masse geophysical anomalism extends another 150 meters past SES026 location.

SES028 intercepted the edge of a significant feeder zone stockwork beneath the "8” Lens. Assays indicated anomalous gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc throughout the entire length of the stockwork from 373.40 meters to 460.80 meters in depth, beneath the 8 Lens.

Discovered a possible new mineralized horizon in SES026, located above the "10” Lens, and intersected it again in SES027 and SES029.

Confirmed that the high grade "2” Lens is a fault-bounded fragment of massive sulfide mineralization with origin yet to be determined. Hole SES003, drilled previously on this target, is now also being assayed and will be reported shortly.

Continued re-logging of historic drill holes has upgraded targets in the northern portions of the Sesmarias Prospect.

Each hole drilled in this exploration phase of the Project has enhanced the revamping of the exploration model. Combined with strong assay results in SES026, in particular, the information will be used in the next drill targeting exercise for this large area.

Mr Paul W Kuhn, President and CEO of Avrupa Minerals, said that “Avrupa Minerals is excited about the continued positive results of the drilling on the “TO" Lens. We have substantially increased the size and volume of known massive sulfide mineralization, as well as intercepted continued base and precious metal mineralization. With only seven holes into the lens itself, six of which intercepted between 15 and 58 meters of massive sulfides, we see plenty of further potential to upgrade the known prospect at Sesmarias. Discovery of the stockwork system in SES028 further supports that the Sesmarias system is a robust mineralizing event. We look forward to our next phase of the program.“
