VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, April 4, 2016 - Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MRO) ("Millrock") announces that the company has acquired five new tenures by staking. The new ground covers the favourable contact and structures that host mineralization on Millrock’s Todd and Poly projects, and joins the two properties together. Todd is centered in the Todd Creek Valley, about 25 km northeast of Stewart, British Columbia, and Poly is located 34 km northeast of the town of Stewart, bisected by Hwy 37A and the Stewart Power Line.
The new tenures comprise a total of 5,391 ha, covering a number of BC Minfile occurrences i.e., Surprise (Mo, Cu): Surprise Creek (Ag, Au, Cu, Mo); and are contiguous with the southeast corner of Pretivm’s Bowser Lake landholding. The new tenures that now link the Todd and Poly properties allow assessment work credits to be spread over the entire land package.
The new tenures cover Middle Jurassic Hazelton Group stratigraphy on or in the area of the Betty Creek/Mount Dilworth Formation contact with the Salmon River Formation. Rocks in vicinity of the contact host the gold and polymetallic volcanogenic massive sulfide targets on Millrock’s wholly-owned Poly property, and on the LNT property upon which Millrock has an option with Teuton Resources Corp. The new claims are particularly important because they encompass the northern extension of the important geological target on Millrock’s Poly property.
