ABOUT MILLROCK RESOURCES INC. Millrock is a TSX Venture Exchange listed company intent upon the discovery of large, high value mineral deposits, with a focus on Alaska gold deposits and Arizona copper-gold porphyries. The Company follows a project generator/joint venture business model that capitalizes on Millrock's knowledge and ability in two outstanding mining jurisdictions. This model shares risk by partnering with other companies that invest capital to move exploration projects toward development and production. Millrock currently has eight active exploration projects in Alaska, and three in Arizona. Six of the projects are the subject of joint venture agreements in which other companies are making exploration expenditures to earn an interest in Millrock's projects. Drilling is planned on at least four of the Company's projects in 2010.
