VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MRO, OTCQB: MLRKF) (“Millrock” or the “Company”) announces that it has entered into a loan agreement with Redplug Capital Corporation. The loan is for $500,000 and will be used for general working capital. Millrock intends to repay the loan within the next year by 1) liquidating shares it holds in other companies, 2) selling royalty interests and/or 3) proceeds that may be realized on sale or purchase agreements relating to Millrock’s mineral exploration projects. The term of the loan is one year. Interest for the first six months of the loan is 6.0% per annum and then 12.0% per annum. In addition, Millrock will pay Redplug Capital Corporation 2,000,000 free shares of the Company upon acceptance on the TSX Venture Exchange.
Millrock Chairman and CEO Gregory Beischer said:Millrock has found itself in a difficult financial position at a time when market conditions limit our ability to raise additional operating funds. In any event, equity financing at the current share price would be highly dilutive for existing shareholders. At the same time, Millrock has many catalysts that could drive the Company’s share price higher. Over 18,000 meters of drilling have been planned and budgeted for in several projects in which Millrock has an interest. All funds for these drilling programs come from corporate partners. Additionally, Millrock is entering into option agreements on other projects that could provide more cash to the company’s treasury. Shareholders who have invested in Millrock over the past few years are looking forward to the big drilling year underway in 2022. Millrock has determined that it is best not to suffer excessive dilution through equity financing at this particular stage. The less dilutive lending operation will allow operations to continue in the short term. Potential asset sales will cover longer-term needs as results from ongoing drilling programs unfold. We hope that the results of the drilling programs will allow for equity financing on more favorable and less dilutive terms later in 2022. We believe that all drilling programs have a good chance of making gold discoveries.
