Millrock Resources Inc. and First Quantum Minerals Ltd. to Enter into Option to Joint Venture Agreement on the Alaska Peninsula Copper Gold Project, Alaska

Millrock Resources Inc. announced that it has been advised that First Quantum Minerals Ltd. (FQM) will exercise its exclusive right to enter into an Option to Joint Venture Agreement on the Alaska Peninsula Project, located in southwest Alaska. The election follows on from a binding letter agreement in which Millrock granted the exclusive right to FQM in January of 2014. As part of that agreement, FQM agreed to fund an initial exploration program that was to cost approximately $600,000. The program was executed by Millrock with participation by FQM geologists in July and August of 2014. Geochemical sampling, geological mapping, prospecting and airborne magnetic surveys were carried out. The Alaska Peninsula project is comprised of surface lands owned by five different Alaska Native Village Corporations and the Bristol Bay Native Corporation (BBNC). All of the subsurface mineral rights, covering an area of more than 203,000 hectares, are owned by BBNC. Millrock has previously made an Exploration Agreement with Option to Lease through which it can secure a 100% leasehold interest from BBNC. The villages of Chignik Bay and Chignik Lagoon are located roughly central to the land package, which is more than 120 km long and up to 60 km wide, covering an area of interest covering approximately 650,000 ha.

First Quantum Minerals Ltd. Commences Phase I Drilling Campaign at the Rubi JV Porphyry Copper, Gold Project in the El Salvador district, Northern Chile

First Quantum Minerals Ltd. has commenced the Phase I drilling campaign at the Rubi JV porphyry copper - gold project in the El Salvador district in northern Chile. This program will focus on priority-ranked targets in the Glenlivet (Lithocap) and Wild Turkey (Eastern Zone) prospects, and could include up to eleven holes of between 500 to 1,000 m depth, totaling up to 5,000 m. If all planned holes are drilled this program may take up to 3 months to complete. The drilling will be carried out by Geotec Boyles, a Chilean company with over 30 years experience in the sometimes challenging conditions of the Atacama region. The program will use a multi-purpose rig which will allow a combination of reverse circulation (RC), and diamond core (DDH) drilling through the diverse post-mineral cover over the target zones. Prior to commencing this drill program, First Quantum completed a 37 line-km program of IP electrical and Magneto Telluric1 (MT) geophysics comprising 10 lines over six prospect areas; geophysics has not yet been carried out over the Portezuelo target on the eastern side of the property. This geophysics program represents the culmination of an extensive 12-month pre-drill exploration program, adding to the JV datasets that include a 2,460 line-km helicopter magnetic survey, extensive property-wide soil and gravity surveys, as well as geological mapping, rock chip sampling and alteration mineral assemblage mapping with a hand-held infrared spectrometer. Integrated analysis of these JV datasets by First Quantum has identified a series of targets for testing during the Phase I drill program. Drilling will focus on target areas where a combination of outcropping alteration, rock chip or soil anomalies and geophysical features outlined a series of covered targets that warrant testing for porphyry copper mineralization.
