The Bonanza Hills are located in southwest Alaska about 160 miles southwest of Anchorage. The property consists of 54 state mining claims covering approximately 13.5 square miles. The property is situated in the Talkeetna Arc, a prolific belt of rocks that is host to a variety of metallic mineral deposits types, including the Pebble porphyry gold-copper-molybdenum deposit. Alluvial gold mining has been intermittently carried out in the Bonanza Hills since about 1913. Liberty has previously reported that high grade gold values occur in quartz - arsenopyrite veins on the property. Additionally, intrusive rocks dated at approximately 64 million years are known to exist on the claims. This age of intrusion is related to gold deposits throughout the state, including Donlin Creek, Estelle, Golden Zone and other deposits. Stream sediment geochemical anomalies have been detected in the vicinity of the intrusive rocks and the high grade vein occurrences. The company is conducting reconnaissance stream sediment and soil sampling and geological investigations to verify the potential for large-scale gold or copper - gold porphyry deposits, and high grade vein-style gold deposits, in anticipation of geophysical surveys and drilling program in 2008.
Additionally, Millrock reports that it has acquired through staking of 124 Alaska state mining claims, another property with similar geological attributes. The claims are located 20 miles to the south of the Bonanza Hills property, and are centered on an anomalous geophysical feature identified by examination of airborne magnetic survey data. The geophysical anomaly may indicate the presence of a porphyry-style deposit. Reports of historic placer gold workings have been made by local residents. Little rock outcrop exposure is present on the property, but intrusive rocks of Donlin Creek age are mapped on adjacent lands. The claims were staked just a few days before Anglo American overstaked portions of the claim group, and a much larger area to the east. Reconnaissance surveys are planned for 2007 with more advanced exploration and drilling in 2008.
