Millrock President & CEO Gregory Beischer commented: “We were pleased that multiple existing Millrock shareholders in Canada were able to take advantage of the Existing Shareholder Exemption. This exemption allows smaller, existing shareholders to take advantage of the potential earnings benefits that private placements can provide. Often participation in private placements is limited to institutional or wealthy investors. We intend to use a portion of the proceeds to advance exploration at our West Pogo gold project in Alaska. A specialized geophysical survey called CSAMT will be part of the work. The method has reportedly worked very well at discovering gold ore bodies on the adjacent Pogo Gold Mine property that is operated by Northern Star Resources Ltd. Additionally, Millrock intends to generate more high-quality gold projects in Alaska. We feel now is the time to act on the various targets that we’ve been waiting to acquire.”
