Millrock Provides Exploration Update On Partner-Funded Alaska Gold Projects

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, September 14, 2022 – Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MRO, OTCQB: MLRKF) (“Millrock” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on gold projects in Alaska.
 
Fairbanks District – Treasure Creek Gold Project
Felix Gold (ASX: FXG, “Felix Gold” or “Felix”) has recently reported that it has completed the planned exploration program at the Treasure Creek gold project in the Fairbanks Mining District. The company has completed 12,424 meters of reverse circulation drilling in 131 holes to test the NW Array and Eastgate prospect areas. Reconnaissance lines were also drilled to test geophysical and geochemical targets in other areas of the property. An initial highlight result of 89.0 meters grading 1.2 grams per tonne gold was previously reported at the Northwest Array prospect and a diamond core rig is now being used to do further testing. Assay results for only nine of the 131 holes have been reported. Thousands of assay results are to follow throughout the fall of 2022. Felix Gold has also completed a VTEM airborne geophysical survey at Treasure Creek to complement a previously flow magnetic survey. Further details can be found in Felix Gold’s September 13, 2022 press release.
 
By virtue of its sale of Fairbanks District claims and a strategic alliance with Felix Gold, Millrock owns 9,957,157 shares of Felix Gold and holds royalties ranging from 1.0% to 2.0% NSR on all claims currently held by Felix Gold in the Fairbanks District.
 
Millrock President & CEO Gregory Beischer commented: “Felix Gold executed an excellent drilling program this year and we look forward to seeing the results. We think the potential of the Fairbanks District has not been fully recognized, but that it soon will be.”
 
Goodpaster District, 64North Gold Project 
Resolution Minerals Limited (ASX: RML) (“Resolution”) has recently reported that it has completed a diamond drilling program to test the Tourmaline Ridge prospect, located to the immediate west of the Pogo Mine, where owner Northern Star Resources Ltd. operates a successful gold mining operation southeast of the City of Fairbanks.
 
Tourmaline Ridge was identified as a priority target for drilling in 2022. Gold and pathfinder elements were detected in soil samples over a 1,850 by 750-meter area. Resolution executed an efficient drill test. Five diamond core holes totaling 2,324 meters were drilled to intersect shallow northwest dipping structures interpreted from geophysics as possible extensions of the Pogo Mine structures. Hole 22TR001 intersected altered rocks with indications of multiple hydrothermal fluid flow events. Mineralization included veinlets of quartz with arsenopyrite, pyrite, and pyrrhotite. Hole 22TR003 intersected quartz veins containing bismuthinite and pyrite. Resolution reported the first batch of assay results from select zones in holes 22TR001 and 22TR003 with low-level, elevated gold values commonly in the 0.04 to 0.2 grams per tonne gold range. Resolution anticipates receipt of the remaining assay results (86% of the total samples submitted) in November 2022. Further details can be gleaned from Resolution’s September 5, 2022 press release.
 
Resolution is currently sole funding exploration to earn up to an 80% interest in a portion of the 64North project. By virtue of the earn-in agreement, Millrock owns 23,100,000 shares of Resolution. To date, Resolution has earned a 42% interest in the project.

“Copper is the New Oil”

According to Goldman Sachs

By 2025, the metals could be priced at $15,000 a tonne (U$6.80 per pound), a rise of 66%. (current copper price is $9,300 per tonne (U$4.24 per pound)) Goldman said in a report titled “Copper is the new Oil”

The report also drills down into three drivers of green copper demand: electric vehicles (EVs); solar power and wind power. The bank estimates that 5.1 million EVs likely will be sold in 2021, rising to 31.51 million EVs in the year 2030. It also forecasts that 30 million charging units will be installed in 2030.

A rising tide of electrification, as many countries seek to lower their emissions through developing new technologies, promises robust demand for years to come. Global copper production would need to rise by between 3% and 6% per annum by 2030 for countries to meet the targets of the Paris Agreement on climate change, according to a Sept. 14 Bernstein Research note.

Millrock Adds to Treasury From Royalty Sale

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.”

Millrock Reports Drilling News From the Treasure Creek Gold Exploration Project, Fairbanks, Alaska

Millrock Resources, Proven and Probable

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MRO, OTCQB: MLRKF) (“Millrock” or the “Company”) reports that Felix Gold (ASX: FXG, “Felix Gold” or “Felix”) has disclosed results from the first nine holes they have drilled on the Treasure Creek gold project this year. Treasure Creek lies just north of the City of Fairbanks, Alaska. Since commencement of drilling in May 2022, Felix has already drilled more than 100 reverse circulation drill holes and drilling continues more. Assay results are being released in batches as they become available from the laboratory.

A highlight intersection of 89.9 meters grading 1.20 grams per tonne gold starting from 32.0 meters downhole has been reported by Felix Gold from Hole 22TCRC008. All nine holes reported so far are from the NW Array prospect, and intersected gold mineralization. The full results published by Felix Gold can be seen in their two most recent press releases available on their website. Note that Millrock has not independently verified the results reported by Felix Gold.

Millrock President & CEO Gregory Beischer commented: “This is a great start to the drilling program that Felix Gold has undertaken. Millrock owns 9,957,157 shares of Felix Gold or about 5.8% of the company. Additionally, Millrock is to be granted a net smelter return royalty on the project that ranges from 1.0% to 2.0%. We hope that these first drill intersections are indications of a new gold deposit discovery that significantly increases Millrock’s share price and market capitalization. More and more discoveries of gold are being made in Fairbanks and the district should soon be recognized as a globally-significant gold mining camp.”

The Treasure Creek gold project is situated 20 kilometers north and west of Kinross’ Fort Knox gold mine, and 10 kilometers west of Freegold Ventures Ltd new discovery at Golden Summit. Alluvial gold deposits in gravels of Treasure Creek point to a bedrock source on the Felix Gold claims where large, strong soil geochemical anomalies are known from historical work and a major soil sampling program done in 2021.

Millrock Announces Loan Agreement

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MRO, OTCQB: MLRKF) (“Millrock” or the “Company”) reports that it has entered into a Loan Agreement with Redplug Capital Corporation. The loan is in the amount of $500,000 and will be used for general working capital. Millrock intends to repay the loan within the coming year by 1) liquidation of shares that it holds in other companies, 2) sale of royalty interests, and/or 3) from proceeds that may be realized on sale or purchase agreements concerning Millrock mineral exploration projects. The term of the loan is one year. Interest for the first six months of the loan is 6.0% per annum and thereafter at 12.0% per annum. Additionally, Millrock will pay the Redplug Capital Corporation 2,000,000 bonus shares of the Company upon acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Millrock President & CEO, Gregory Beischer, commented: “Millrock has found itself in a tight financial position at a time when market conditions limit our ability to raise further operating funds. In any event, an equity financing at the current share price would be highly dilutive to existing shareholders. At the same time, Millrock has many catalysts that have potential to drive the Company’s share price higher. More than 18,000 metres of drilling has been planned and budgeted at several projects in which Millrock has an interest. All the funds for these drilling programs come from partner companies. Additionally, Millrock is closing in on option agreements on other projects that could bring more cash into the company treasury. Shareholders that have invested in Millrock over the past few years have looked forward to the big year of drilling underway in 2022. Millrock has determined that it is best not to incur excessive dilution by equity financing at this particular juncture. The less dilutive loan transaction will allow operations to continue in the short term. Potential asset sales will cover longer term needs while results of ongoing drilling programs unfold. We are hopeful that results of the drilling programs will make an equity financing under more favourable and less dilutive terms later in 2022 possible. We think all the drilling programs have a good chance at making gold discoveries.”

Earned Interest: Resolution has earned a 42% interest in the project by making cash payments (US$150,000), share payments (30,000,000 shares), and expending at least US$7.0 million on exploration (US$7.87 million spent as at January 31, 2022). Additionally, Resolution has elected to continue sole-funding exploration to earn a 51% interest by making further expenditures in 2022 and making further share and cash payments to Millrock.

Millrock President & CEO Gregory Beischer commented: “There is an abundance of geologic evidence pointing to a possible gold deposit at Tourmaline Ridge. We wish Resolution the best of luck as they move the project forward, and we are hopeful for a new gold discovery.”

A large soil geochemical anomaly measuring 1,800 by 750 meters occurs on the Tourmaline Ridge prospect. Recently Resolution reported that it had received rock sample assay results from trenches excavated at Tourmaline Ridge in fall of 2021. Numerous narrow, gold-bearing veins were detected. These steep-dipping veins are interpreted to be “antithetic veins”, which commonly occur in the hanging wall above gold ore bodies at the nearby Pogo mine. Prior historical drilling intersected these veins along with characteristic rock alteration and pathfinder minerals. From geophysical surveys, a moderately northwest dipping structure is interpreted to lie beneath the soil anomaly and historic drill holes. Resolution and Millrock interpret this structure to be the “Pogo Trend”, which appears to be traced from the Goodpaster deposit on the adjacent Pogo Mine property operated by Northern Star Mines Ltd. (“Northern Star”).

Northern Star recently announced a maiden inferred resource estimate of 1.1 million ounces of gold in 3.2 million tonnes of rock, averaging 10.3 grams per ton gold for the Goodpaster deposit.

As of March 31, Pogo is reported by Northern Star to host 6.59 million metric tonnes of proven and probable reserves, averaging 8.5 grams per metric tonne (1.8 million ounces) gold. (Northern Star ANNUAL MINERAL RESOURCE AND ORE RESERVE STATEMENT, May 5, 2022). More than 4 million ounces of gold has been mined at Pogo.

Note: Millrock has not independently verified the information reported by Northern Star. Also, Millrock cannot assure that the structures that host gold ore bodies at Pogo continue onto ground controlled by Millrock and that gold deposits of similar magnitude and concentration will be discovered.

Millrock Reports Drilling Has Commenced On The Treasure Creek Gold Exploration Project, Fairbanks, Alaska

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, May 3, 2022 – Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MRO, OTCQB: MLRKF) (“Millrock” or the “Company”) reports that Felix Gold (ASX: FXG, “Felix Gold” or “Felix”) has commenced drilling on the Treasure Creek gold project, which lies just north of the City of Fairbanks.

Felix indicates that it plans to drill 7,000 meters with a small reverse circulation drill rig. Millrock has assigned its Treasure Creek mineral rights to Felix Gold in return for cash, shares, and production royalties featuring advanced minimum royalty streams. Millrock owns 9,957,157  Felix Gold shares that today have a market value of approximately AUD$1,643,000 (CDN$1,495,000).

Millrock President & CEO Gregory Beischer commented: “The targets to be drilled by Felix Gold have a strong chance of successfully identifying a gold deposit. A new discovery here would propel the value of Millrock’s shareholding in Felix Gold and in return increase the value of Millrock shares. The project is certainly well-situated, about 20 kilometers north and west of Kinross’ Fort Knox gold mine, and 10 kilometers west of Freegold’s new discovery at Golden Summit. Alluvial gold deposits in gravels of Treasure Creek point to a bedrock source on the Felix Gold claims where large, strong soil geochemical anomalies are known from historical work and a major soil sampling program done in 2021. We will look forward to assay results from the current drilling program with great anticipation. Felix Gold has built an excellent exploration team and is well-capitalized. The team has a great chance of making discoveries and revealing the substantial potential for more major gold deposit discoveries in the Fairbanks gold mining camp. In my view, the potential in Fairbanks has been generally under-recognized by the industry. This has allowed Felix, through Millrock, to consolidate a tremendous land position. As a result of the agreement with Felix, Millrock is entitled to production royalties at Treasure Creek and throughout the Fairbanks district.”

Key Highlights:

  • Surface geochemical program completed August 2021 identified new gold in soil anomaly extending over one kilometer northeast of old workings.
  • Results up to 1.09 ounces per ton gold and 1.10 ounces per ton silver in soil samples.
  • Anomaly located downslope and along strike from the Apex Mine.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MRO, OTCQB: MLRKF) (“Millrock” or the “Company”) reports that positive assay results from a sampling and mapping program carried out in August 2021 have been received and compiled. The soil sampling results indicate that known mineralization at the former-producing Apex Mine likely extends 1,000 meters to the northeast.

Millrock President & CEO commented: “These are excellent results that show the gold-bearing quartz vein structure known from historic mining has significant strike continuity. Some of the soil sample numbers are of exceptional tenor.”

The exploration work was completed during August 2021 and consisted of a soil geochemical survey (439 samples), rock sampling (39 samples), and geologic mapping. Soil samples were collected along a 20 meter by 40 meter spaced grid. The survey was designed to test the presence and extent of gold-bearing quartz veins along strike and down-valley from known gold mineralization at the historic Apex and El Nido Mines located within the Cann Creek drainage.

All assay results have been received from the exploration work. A broad gold in soil anomaly was identified by the geochemical survey in the lower cirque valley of Cann Creek. Assays of soil samples returned values ranging from below detection to a maximum of 33,900 parts per billion gold (1.09 ounces per ton) and 34,400 parts per billion silver (1.10 ounces per ton). One hundred and seven of the 439 samples collected returned highly anomalous values exceeding 80 parts per billion gold. The anomaly occurs at approximately 300 meters elevation below outcropping vein exposures that host the Apex Mine and extends over one kilometer down valley from the historic workings, along strike of the vein swarm. The anomaly is also underlain by the same rock units (diorite and amphibolite) that hosts the Apex vein.

On August 12, 2021, Millrock announced that it had entered into an agreement with Coeur Explorations, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Coeur Mining, Inc. (“Coeur”), concerning the Apex gold project in Southeast Alaska. Under the agreement, Coeur agreed to fund approximately $200,000 worth of exploration work. Coeur has met its obligations by funding the work, but has elected to terminate the option agreement. Millrock is free to further explore the project on its own or find another earn-in partner.

Millrock President & CEO Gregory Beischer commented: “We enjoyed working with the Coeur Explorations team and thank Coeur for advancing the project. The soil anomaly presents a compelling target for drilling and significantly expands the strike potential of the small, historic underground mine”.

Quality Control – Quality Assurance
Millrock adheres to stringent Quality Assurance – Quality Control (“QA/QC”) standards. In this case, the assay work was done under an agreement between Coeur and the assay laboratory. Samples are kept in a secure location at all times. Samples were assayed at the Bureau Veritas laboratory in Vancouver, Canada. Preparation and analysis methods are described in further detail here. The sample preparation method codes utilized for the program were SS80 for Soils and PRP70-250 for Rocks. Analytical methods used were FA430 (lead collection fire-assay fusion-AAS finish) and MA250 (4 acid digestion Ultratrace ICP-MS) for all samples. A 10% QA/QC sample insertion rate was used for all samples: 5% CRM (Certified Reference Materials) of known gold concentration and 5% blank material. The Qualified Person is of the opinion that the results reported in this press release are reliable.

Qualified Person
The scientific and technical information disclosed within this document has been prepared, reviewed, and approved by Gregory A. Beischer, President, CEO, and a director of Millrock Resources. Mr. Beischer is a qualified person as defined in NI 43-101.
