- In the event that 2,500 meters of drilling is completed, $40,000 or 200,000 Millrock shares at the option of the vendor; and
- If a Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) is completed, Millrock will pay 50 cents per ounce of gold contained on the property in an Inferred Resource (Canadian Institute of Mining definition) to a maximum of $2 million; and
- If a Decision to Mine is made, Millrock will pay $1.00 per ounce of gold contained on Reserves and Resources in all categories delineated at the time, less any amount paid at the time of the PEA, to a maximum of $5 million.

Gregory A. Beischer, Millrock President stated: “The prospect is in steep mountainous terrain on the eastern edge of the Cambria Icefield. The terrain will present challenges, but also opportunities. Glaciers have been rapidly receding over the years since the last exploration drilling work was done in 1995. Much more may now be visible and accessible. The gold grades intersected by previous explorers are quite high. We look forward to following up on the discoveries made previously.”
Eleven different zones of mineralization have been identified on the property. The host rocks are Jurassic in age and are geologically assigned to the lower portions of the Hazelton Group. The high grade gold zones are associated with vein structures and sulfide minerals.
