Millrock Resources announces that drilling has commenced at the Stellar Project in Alaska. The program will focus on the high-grade copper-gold deposit called Zackly. A program consisting of approximately 25 holes totaling 3,000 meters is planned. Two drills have been mobilized to complete the work. Millrock is executing the work on behalf of Coventry Resources.

The drilling program's primary objective is to bring the historic, high-grade, copper-gold resource at the Zackly skarn deposit to meet the standards of the Australian Joint Ore Reserves Committee (JORC) for mineral resource reporting. To accomplish this objective one drill will be used to drill approximately twelve holes through the known, historic deposit.

A second drill will test for extensions of the deposit, both to the east and west, where induced polarization surveys indicate possible additional mineralization.

Coventry also owns the nearby Caribou Dome ("CD") copper deposit, which is reported by Coventry to have a high-grade resource that is described in this Coventry press release. A description of the CD project can be found at this link. Geological mapping and other surface work is currently in progress at CD.

Baseline environmental studies will also be conducted at both Zackly and CD in anticipation of moving the combined project toward a pre-feasibility study in 2018.
