Avrupa Minerals Increases Financing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- Avrupa Minerals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: AVU)(FRANKFURT: 8AM) is pleased to announce that the $500,000 financing announced on August 5, 2014 has been over-subscribed and increased to $1,000,000. The financing participants include investors that have supported Avrupa in the past and who are able to assist Avrupa in the future with potential financial and strategic support. The financing is fully subscribed and will close shortly.

Paul Kuhn, President and CEO commented, "Avrupa is pleased with the continued strong support shown by the core strategic shareholder group. Our three joint-venture partners' programs in 2014, as well as the exploration alliance with Callinan Royalties, will benefit the existing and new shareholders, and the success at the Alvalade project will also keep us active in the near future."

With the increase in the financing, it will now consist of 4,000,000 Units at a price of $0.25 per Unit. Each Unit is comprised of a common share and a non-transferable common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share at a price of $0.40 per common share for a 36-month period starting on the closing of this offering. A commission of 5% cash and 7% finder's warrants will be paid to certain parties. The securities are subject to a four-month hold period from the final closing date.

Avrupa will now have 42,973,571 common shares outstanding upon completion of this financing. The core strategic shareholder group continues to hold a significant amount of the shares of Avrupa, including insiders, Callinan, and certain individual investors. The financing will be closed shortly upon approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.

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 14 exploration licenses in three European countries, including eight in Portugal covering 2,951.6 km2, five in Kosovo covering 153 km2, and one in Germany covering 307 km2. Avrupa operates three joint ventures and one exploration alliance in Portugal and Kosovo, 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;

--  The Slivovo JV, with Byrnecut International, covering one license in
    central Kosovo, for gold and base metals related to carbonate-hosted
    massive sulfide deposits in the Vardar Mineral Trend; and

--  The CalGen Exploration Alliance, with Callinan Royalties Corp., covering
    generative exploration throughout Portugal, and including specific
    prospect upgrade work on the Alvito IOCG license in southern Portugal.

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.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice.

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...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
