Millrock Partner Sojourn Reports Stream Sediment and Soil Sampling Results From Oweegee Dome Project, Golden Triangle District, British Columbia

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - December 07, 2017) - Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: MRO) (OTCQX: MLRKF) ("Millrock") is pleased to announce that sampling results for a comprehensive stream sediment sampling program and a targeted soil sampling program have been reported by partner Sojourn Exploration Inc., (TSX VENTURE: SOJ) ("Sojourn"). The work program was recommended by Millrock as a logical follow-on step from the airborne geophysical survey and data compilation exercise that it had completed in 2016 -- before Sojourn optioned the property. The geophysical surveys had identified a series of thirteen porphyry copper-gold targets, as well as five targets thought to represent possible volcanogenic sulfide mineralization.

The work was funded by Sojourn and indicates strongly anomalous metal concentrations in the immediate vicinity of several of the high-potential geophysical targets.

Phil St. George, Millrock's Chief Exploration Officer, stated: "There is potential for both porphyry copper-gold deposits and volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits on this large land holding. Millrock and Sojourn have identified numerous high-priority drill targets through systematic, property-wide exploration; an approach that had been previously lacking. The targets are situated at the same stratigraphic level that has produced many other mines and deposits known to exist in the Golden Triangle District, and will be well worth drill testing."

A total of 464 stream sediments and 324 soils were collected. Sojourn indicates in their press release the following summary of results:
