VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MRO, OTCQB: MLRKF) ("Millrock" or the “Company”) reports that it has entered into a Loan Agreement with Redplug Capital Corporation. The loan is in the amount of $500,000 and will be used for general working capital. Millrock intends to repay the loan within the coming year by 1) liquidation of shares that it holds in other companies, 2) sale of royalty interests, and/or 3) from proceeds that may be realized on sale or purchase agreements concerning Millrock 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 thereafter at 12.0% per annum. Additionally, Millrock will pay the Redplug Capital Corporation 2,000,000 bonus shares of the Company upon acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Millrock President & CEO, Gregory Beischer, commented: “ Millrock has found itself in a tight financial position at a time when market conditions limit our ability to raise further operating funds. In any event, an equity financing at the current share price would be highly dilutive to existing shareholders. At the same time, Millrock has many catalysts that have potential to drive the Company’s share price higher. More than 18,000 metres of drilling has been planned and budgeted at several projects in which Millrock has an interest. All the funds for these drilling programs come from partner companies. Additionally, Millrock is closing in on option agreements on other projects that could bring more cash into the company treasury. Shareholders that have invested in Millrock over the past few years have looked forward to the big year of drilling underway in 2022. Millrock has determined that it is best not to incur excessive dilution by equity financing at this particular juncture. The less dilutive loan transaction will allow operations to continue in the short term. Potential asset sales will cover longer term needs while results of ongoing drilling programs unfold. We are hopeful that results of the drilling programs will make an equity financing under more favourable and less dilutive terms later in 2022 possible. We think all the drilling programs have a good chance at making gold discoveries.”
