While gold will still be a focus commodity, we are looking to expand our portfolio with greater emphasis on copper, nickel, and a variety of other critical and strategic metals. Generative efforts in the past 18 months have led to some excellent funding partnerships with earn-in companies. The coming year will see a lot of drilling on Millrock controlled projects. We will be hoping to make the transformative discovery that will result in the share price appreciation we all want to see.”
