Avrupa Minerals CEO discusses 2024 plans and progress on key projects

Avrupa Minerals CEO Paul Kuhn recently shared insights with Steve Darling from Proactive about the company’s ambitious agenda for 2024. Kuhn highlighted the significant strides made in deposit definition work at the Sesmarias copper-zinc-lead Project in Portugal throughout 2023.

The company is now gearing up for an aggressive drilling campaign in the SES Central Zone, slated to kick off soon. The success of this drilling phase will be pivotal in charting Avrupa Minerals’ trajectory towards applying for a mining license, anticipated in the first half of 2025.

Kuhn also shed light on the company’s project in Kosovo, situated in the Vihanti-Pyhäsalmi VMS District in Central Finland. This project encompasses two exploration permits covering known massive sulfide deposits (Kangasjärvi and Hallaperä), an application over a massive sulfide deposit (Rauhala), and an exploration permit for a massive sulfide target (Kolima).

While awaiting the issuance of the Kolima permit, the joint venture is conducting preliminary exploration work, reviewing historical core and geophysical data, and modeling SkyTEM data from the Kangasjärvi license. These efforts have unveiled a compelling un-drilled target near the old Kangasjärvi Mine, with plans in motion for drilling at this target in 2024. Additionally, other SkyTEM anomalies may warrant drilling following planned exploration activities during the upcoming field season.

In essence, Avrupa Minerals remains steadfast in advancing its projects in Portugal and Kosovo through vigorous exploration and drilling campaigns, aiming to delineate significant mineral resources and progress towards mining license applications.
