VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jul 7, 2014) - Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MRO) is pleased to report it has completed geophysical surveying on its Alaska Peninsula Project, Alaska. The survey saw a total of 1,140 line kilometers of high-resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric data collected over three prospects of interest: Bee Creek, Mallard Duck Bay, and Kawisgag. Precision Geosurveys Inc. was contracted to carry out the helicopter-borne surveys.
The completed work was the first of a two-phase summer program, which is being funded by First Quantum Minerals Ltd. The second phase is to consist of a geological mapping and geochemical sampling program and will focus on the geophysically surveyed areas, all of which have known porphyry occurrences. Phase 2 is planned to start in mid July.
The Alaska Peninsula project is comprised of lands owned by six Alaska Native village corporations and the Bristol Bay Native Corporation. Millrock has previously made an Exploration Agreement with Option to Lease through which it can secure a 100% leasehold interest. The villages of Chignik Bay and Chignik Lagoon are located roughly central to the land package, which is more than 120 km long and up to 60 km wide and covers an area of approximately 650,000 ha.
