VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, July 26th, 2017 - Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MRO, OTCQX: MLRKF) (“Millrock” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed the sale of Stellar copper-gold project to Vista Minerals Pty Ltd (“Vista”). Upon completion of the deal, as previously announced, Vista successfully merged with Coventry Resources, which owns an option on the adjacent high-grade copper Caribou Dome Project. Coventry simultaneously announced that it had successfully raised AUS$5.5 million to further exploration. Upon closing of the three-way deal, Millrock now owns a 10.6% of Coventry Resources.
With the capital raising and merger complete, Coventry Resources will fund a major drilling campaign on the Stellar Project, as well as surface exploration work at Caribou Dome. The program, which will be operated by Millrock on behalf of Coventry, will see two drill rigs working at the high-grade Zackly copper-gold skarn deposit. Approximately 3,000 meters are planned in 20 holes.
The main objective of the program is to bring the historic, high-grade, copper-gold resource at the Zackly skarn deposit to a point that it meets the standards of the Australian 2012 Edition of the Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results (JORC Code). The secondary objective is to discover strike extensions of the deposit which are inferred to exist from induced polarization geophysical surveys conducted in 2016. Drilling is planned to commence in mid-August. Further induced polarization surveys and geological mapping will be undertaken at Zackly and the nearby Mars copper-gold porphyry target. Field work will also be done at Caribou Dome. Millrock will earn a 10% management fee in expenditures and is entitled to certain milestone payments if a resource of significant size is delineated on the Stellar Project.
A detailed outline of the program can be found on Coventry’s website here.
