Avrupa Minerals Preparing To Drill Soon At Flagship Alvalade Copper-Zinc Project; Closes C$0.5M Financing, And 4:1 Consolidation Should Improve Attractivity For Investors

As 2020 keeps unfolding as one of the most remarkable years of the last decade with COVID-19 disrupting almost everything, resulting in unprecedented drops in economic activity and considerable volatility in the markets, and a second wave of the pandemic seems to be around the corner, the mining industry seems to be looking forward, on the back of a recovering economy, especially China returning back close to normal during the summer. A tiny company that is completely under the radar of many investors, but is also looking to get back into action, is Avrupa Minerals (AVU:TSXV) with its flagship copper-zinc Alvalade project in Portugal, JV’d with MATSA (joined company of Trafigura and Mubadala, 2 commodity giants).

Avrupa Minerals Finally Secures Exploitation Permit For Alvalade, JV With MATSA Finalized, Preparing Drill Program

 

As gold stocks are getting all the attention at the moment with gold firmly in an upward trend it seems, one could almost forget the existence of base metal juniors. This is not entirely justified in my opinion, as for example copper has recovered completely from its March lows, as can be seen in this chart per pound Cu by Macrotrends:

A Critical Q & A With Paul Kuhn, CEO Of Avrupa Minerals

As Avrupa Minerals (AVU.V) finalized the Definitive Agreement with MATSA, a 50:50 joint venture company of Mubadala Investment Company, a pioneering global investor, and Trafigura, one of the world’s leading independent commodity trading and logistics houses, on November 20, 2019, exploration programs are being prepared now. As exciting times are ahead in 2020 for Avrupa after a quiet period, it is time to speak to CEO Paul Kuhn and hear all about why Avrupa is a potentially very interesting investment opportunity at these lows, although the MATSA JV is obviously sparking new interest in the story recently:

  • Readers should be made well aware that Doug Beattie is retired and has not accepted, and will not accept, any compensation for the reports  he has written.  Once compensation comes into the equation, it takes away some of his editorial liberty and would likely cause him to become very cautious with what he has to say. 

 

Sesmarias Step Out Drilling Successful So Far For Avrupa Minerals

It took Avrupa Minerals (AVU.V) a few weeks longer than anticipated to release the first drill results of the Q4 2018 program on the Sesmarias project, part of their Alvalade license located in Portugal, as bringing good news right before PDAC usually generates healthy attention, but the numbers came out pretty interesting anyway in my view. The self-funded 2018 drill program appears to be a real eye-opener for management, as the recently completed 2,498 meters of drilling (6 holes) not only changed their insights on the position of the mineralized lenses discovered so far, but also showed other potentially mineralized structures by intercepting stockwork besides lenses. Step-out drilling of the known 10 Lens is also going according to plan, adding decent tonnage rapidly. Here is an overview of the identified mineralized envelopes/zones at Sesmarias:

Adriatic Metals’ Days Under The Radar Will Be Over In A Few Months; Potentially Very High Grade Maiden Resource Estimate Upcoming For Rupice

Drilling at Rupice

1. Introduction

One of my favorite holdings, Adriatic Metals, is still under the radar for a lot of North American investors, being an Australia listed company. It is my strong conviction this is not really deserved, and this situation might potentially not last very long. As they are exploring Rupice, a very high grade polymetallic project in Bosnia Herzegovina, Adriatic already produced several impressive sets of drill results during 2018. It didn’t stop there, as the company released for example hole BR-36-18 which intercepted a very thick zone of high-grade mineralisation over 72m returning 18.3% Zn, 10.7% Pb, 211g/t Ag, 2.5/t Au, 2.5% Cu from 206m, and 46m at 25% BaSO4 from 216m on January 21, 2019.
