Avrupa Outlines 2014 Activities

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/05/14 -- Avrupa Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: AVU)(FRANKFURT: 8AM) is pleased to provide this shareholder update of its plans and activities for 2014. Paul Kuhn, President and CEO, has outlined the following key strategies and activities for 2014 to advance the European mineral projects and to work towards increasing the value of the Company:

1.  Maintain multiple exploration programs and an active generative
    exploration pipeline on its projects in Europe - currently several
    projects are advancing with four partners.
2.  Maintain low overhead costs and minimize dilution for shareholders, so
    upon success they are well rewarded.
3.  Continue to look for world class deposits in historic mining districts
    in Europe and the general Mediterranean Basin.

Achievements in 2013

During 2013 Avrupa advanced its projects and received funding in several ways:

--  We completed two successful drill programs at the Alvalade copper
    project.
--  We completed one successful drill program at the Covas tungsten project.
--  We found a new partner to advance the Slivovo gold and base metals
    project in Kosovo.
--  We partnered with a royalty company that is actively helping to advance
    several of our projects in Portugal. That company also invested $350,000
    directly into Avrupa.
--  We completed a financing for $600,000.
--  We acquired one new project in the Iberian Pyrite Belt (IPB) of
    Portugal, and also applied for two others in the same highly prospective
    belt.
--  Two new people were appointed to the Board of Directors.
--  We maintained proactive investor relations with contact at conferences
    in North America and Europe and issued regular corporate updates.
--  Several analysts provided updates on the Company.

Plans for 2014

The Company is already moving ahead with its first drill program of 2014, which started in January on the Alvalade Project in the IPB of Portugal. Additional plans for 2014 include:

--  Analyze the generative project in Germany for gold and tin and prepare
    for potential joint venture.
--  Continue to analyze results of the drilling at the Alvalade copper
    project in south Portugal, and continue with additional drilling on the
    project, if results continue to be positive.
--  Begin an active exploration program in Kosovo on Slivovo.
--  Continue to expand the tungsten mineral occurrence at Covas in north
    Portugal.
--  Add new projects in new areas to the exploration pipeline, and drop
    projects that do not meet joint venture criteria, depending on technical
    results.
--  Advance existing and new projects in Portugal with initial funding
    provided by our royalty partner so that JV partners can be found to
    further advance the projects.
--  Find a partner, or partners, for our southern Portugal projects,
    particularly the Marateca copper-zinc project in the IPB and the Alvito
    iron oxide-copper-gold project in the adjacent Ossa Morena Zone.
--  Continue to maintain low overhead costs and minimize shareholder
    dilution.

The Company has also placed links on its website (www.avrupaminerals.com) to a number of new interviews with Mr. Kuhn. The interviews cover a wide range of topics related to progress at the corporate and financial level, as well as advancement of the Company's exploration programs in Europe.

Avrupa Minerals Ltd. is a growth-oriented junior exploration and development company focused on discovery, using a prospect generator model, of valuable mineral deposits in politically stable and prospective regions of Europe, including Portugal, Kosovo, and Germany.

The Company currently holds 15 exploration licenses in three European countries, including nine in Portugal covering 2,980 km2, five in Kosovo covering 153 km2, and one in Germany covering 307 km2. Avrupa operates three joint ventures in Portugal, including:

--  The Alvalade JV, with Antofagasta, covering one license in the Iberian
    Pyrite Belt of southern Portugal, for Cu-rich massive sulfide deposits;
--  The Covas JV, with Blackheath Resources, covering one license in
    northern Portugal, for intrusion-related W deposits; and
--  The Arga JV, also with Blackheath Resources, covering one license
    located adjacent to the Covas JV, for intrusion-related Au-W deposits.

Avrupa is currently upgrading precious and base metal targets to JV-ready status in a variety of districts on their other licenses, with the idea of attracting potential partners to project-specific and/or regional exploration programs.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts.

Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
