TSX VENTURE SYMBOL "MC"
CALGARY, Sept. 2 /CNW/ - MILL CITY GOLD CORP. ("Mill City" and/or the
"Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an Option and Joint
Venture Agreement (the "Agreement") with Temex Resources Corp. ("Temex") and
East West Resource Corporation ("East West") (collectively "the Companies")
whereby Mill City can earn a 50% interest in the GP2 Property in the
Noront-McFaulds Lake area.
Bruce Durham, Executive Chairman of Temex commented, "We have established
a good working relationship with Mill City and we are excited to commence
drill testing these high priority targets immediately with the diamond drill
having just arrived on the property."
The GP2 Property, which comprises 17 mining claims totaling 240 units
covering 9,600 acres, was part of a larger land package that was subject to
VTEM helicopter-borne geophysical surveying conducted by Temex and its
partners in winter 2008. The survey identified numerous anomalies on the GP2
Property from which priority targets were selected for drill testing
immediately. The majority of the targets are considered to have potential to
host significant nickel-copper-PGE or Cu-Zn mineralization.
The GP2 Property is held under a 50:50 Joint Venture between Temex and
East West. Mill City can earn a 50% interest in the GP2 Property by issuing an
aggregate of 1,000,000 shares to Temex and East West, of which 750,000 are due
on signing, and by spending an aggregate of $5 million in exploration on the
Property over three years. During the earn-in period, Mill City has appointed
Temex as the Agent to carry out the exploration programs, which will be
managed in the field by East West. Once Mill City has exercised the Option to
earn a 50% interest, Temex has the Option to participate in the Joint Venture
at 25% or to revert to a 7.5% interest carried to production.
The Agreement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Mill City is a Canadian based exploration stage resource company engaged
in the acquisition and exploration of base and precious metals properties.
The Company is focusing its exploration efforts on its previously announced
option from Temex to acquire a 50% interest in approximately 16,000 ha located
in the James Bay Lowlands near the Noront Ni-Cu-PGE discovery.
