Millrock readies BC property for drilling

Millrock Resources Inc. Sept. 26 said a ZTEM airborne geophysical survey is underway at its Oweegee Dome project in the Golden Triangle area of northwestern British Columbia.

ZTEM, Z-Axis Tipper Electromagnetic system, is an innovative airborne electromagnetic system which uses the natural or passive fields of the earth as the source of transmitted energy.

This system is capable of deep penetration and identification of conductive zones at depth.

Case studies have shown that structural features and pyrite halo mineralization around significant porphyry ore bodies are possible.

Geotech Ltd., the company that developed ZTEM, is conducting the survey with their aircraft and instrumentation, and will be merging these geophysical results with other types of surveys that have previously been conducted on the property by prior operators.

"This survey will complement the existing geophysical information that we acquired along with the property when we purchased it.

We now have all project information in a database and will use all data at hand to develop drill targets for testing in 2017," said Millrock Chief Exploration Officer Phil St. George.
