Millrock refines drill targets at BC project

Millrock Resources Inc. Feb. 14 said it has completed a Z-axis tipper electromagnetic (ZTEM) and magnetic airborne geophysical survey over a large portion of its Oweegee Dome copper-gold project in the Golden Triangle region of northwestern British Columbia.

ZTEM, an airborne geophysical system developed by Geotech Ltd., is capable of deep penetration and identification of conductive zones at depth.

The goal of this survey at Oweegee Dome was to identify conductive bodies that may represent porphyry-style copper-gold deposits.

The objective of the magnetic survey was to map rock types and to image rocks beneath the surface.

As part of the program, current survey results were merged with results from other geophysical survey types, as well as geochemical and geological information, and surface mineral occurrence information.

Millrock said this work has resulted in a better understanding of the mineral potential of the claim block, and a series of compelling drill targets have emerged.

Three-dimensional modeling of the magnetic data has indicated and imaged an interesting magmatic intrusion that may be the source and host of copper-gold mineralization.

Millrock says Oweegee Dome has drawn interest from potential funding partners.

Oweegee Dome is one of four active projects Millrock has in the Golden Triangle.
