Millrock Enters Option to Joint Venture Agreement with First Quantum Minerals

Millrock Resources Inc. announced that it has entered into an Option to Joint Venture Agreement (“Option Agreement”) on the Alaska Peninsula copper-gold project with First Quantum Minerals Ltd. (“FQM”). The Option Agreement follows on from a Binding Letter Agreement in which Millrock granted the exclusive right to enter this new agreement. By virtue of the new Option Agreement, FQM may earn up to an 80% interest in the project. To further assess the subsurface resources, a drilling program consisting of 8 holes, totaling approximately 2,400 m, has been authorized by FQM. Millrock will manage the drilling program, which is planned to start in July 2015. Two areas will be tested: the Dry Creek prospect and the MDB prospect. Porphyry style copper-gold mineralization is the target at both locations. Surface and airborne surveys conducted by Millrock and FQM in 2014 identified and characterized zoned rock alteration and metallic mineral distribution patterns typical of this deposit type.
