VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, March 12, 2015 - Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MRO) ("Millrock") announces that it has entered a Collaboration Agreement, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Millrock Alaska LLC, with the intention of exploring for high-grade gold deposits in Alaska with a major gold mining company (“the Major”).
Under the terms of the agreement the Major will fund research and reconnaissance exploration efforts undertaken in accordance with a multi-phase, open-ended, systematic program designed by a technical committee composed of representatives of both companies. The work will be focused on specific, defined, collaboration areas in Alaska, which the Major and Millrock consider have the potential for high grade gold deposits.
Projects approved by the technical committee will each be subject to separate farm-in and joint venture agreements. Such agreements will provide for the Major to acquire up to 80% of each project, after meeting minimum expenditure obligations and payments and after satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions.
The Major may terminate the Collaboration Agreement at any time on 30 days’ notice and Millrock may terminate the Collaboration Agreement on 30 days’ notice, which takes effect from the end of an identified phase or approved program.
