Avrupa Minerals announced on April 20 that it had closed a financing via a private placement, raising $225,000 through issuing 2.5 million common shares at $0.09 per share. In an April 11 announcement, the company noted that the proceeds of the offering "will be used for exploration and operations in Kosovo, Portugal, Vancouver and for general and administration costs."

Paul Kuhn, Avrupa's president & CEO, commented on April 11 that "with our new partner in Portugal funding the Alvito IOCG exploration, and our partner in Kosovo funding a large drill program at the Slivovo gold project, our costs in those locations are low. These new funds will cover costs to advance our other key projects."
