British Columbia

The Stewart Golden Triangle in northern British Columbia is becoming a truly world-class mining camp.

Millrock currently has 4 active projects in the area including Oweegee Dome, Todd Creek, Poly, and Willoughby.

Millrock has chosen this district as a focus area for the following reasons:

1. Prospective Geology:

  • the Jurassic Hazelton stratigraphy has an extraordinary metal endowment;
  • long-lived mineralizing system that developed a diversity of metallic mineral deposit types;
  • epithermal gold veins, porphyries, volcanogenic massive sulfide, mesothermal veins;
  • deposits are known to have exceptional grade;
    • examples include Pretivm’s Brucejack deposit (epithermal vein deposit), Seabridge’s KSM deposit (gold-copper porphyry), Barrick Gold Corporation’s Eskay Creek (precious metals enriched volcanogenic massive sulfide), Granduc (Besshi – type volcanogenic), and Ascot’s Premier – Silbbak deposit (mesothermal vein);
  • recent advances in understanding of deposit emplacement parameters; and
  • rapidly receding glaciers exposing previously unseen mineralization and alteration zones.

2. Great Infrastructure:

  • Anchored by the town of Stewart, a year-round, ice-free port on the Pacific Ocean;
  • Recent construction of the Northwest Transmission Line;
  • New run-of-river hydroelectric projects;
  • New powerlines to the Red Chris gold-copper porphyry and the Brucejack gold deposit; and
  • New roads to resources including Brucejack, Red Chris, extension of Eskay Mine road to the KSM deposit and, Snip and Johnny Mountain areas.

3. Mining Welcome:

  • Support and participation and partnerships for mining projects from First Nations;
  • Support and endorsement from local, provincial and federal governments; and
  • BC mineral exploration tax incentive provides a rebate of 20% on qualifying exploration expenditures.
