VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MRO, OTCQB: MLRKF) (“Millrock” or the “Company”) reports that it has sold a portfolio of royalties on exploration projects in British Columbia, Canada and Sonora State, Mexico to Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd (“Osisko”). Gross proceeds from the sale are $1.2 million.
Millrock President & CEO, Gregory Beischer, commented: “Prevailing market challenges make an equity financing difficult and raising capital in this manner would be highly dilutive to shareholders. Sale of non-core assets is the best way to bolster Millrock’s treasury for continued project generation activities, while we wait for assay results to roll out from two major Alaska gold drilling projects in which Millrock holds an interest.”
|British Columbia Royalties|
|Todd Creek||1.5% to 2.0%|
|Oweegee Dome||1.5% to 2.0%|
|Willoughby||1.5% to 2.0%|
