VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MRO, OTCQX: MLRKF) ("Millrock" or the “Company”) reports it has closed the private placement with EMX Royalty Corporation announced on April 24, 2019.  A total of 7,142,857 units at a price of $0.14 per unit have been issued for gross proceeds of $1,000,000.  Each unit consisted of one common share of Millrock (a “Unit Share”) and one share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). 

Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of Millrock until December 14, 2021 at an escalating exercise price ($0.14 until December 14, 2019; $0.17 from December 15, 2019 until December 14, 2020; and $0.20 from December 15, 2020 until December 14, 2021). The Warrants also contain an accelerated exercise provision. If Millrock’s shares have traded at or above $0.20 per share for 20 consecutive trading days, Millrock may give notice that the Warrants will expire if not exercised within 30 days of receipt of such notice by EMX.

The common shares issued under the Private Placement and any common shares issued pursuant to exercise of Warrants are subject to a hold period and may not be traded until August 26, 2019. The Private Placement includes a further restriction on resale on half of the Unit Shares until the first anniversary of the investment, and an anti-dilution clause entitling EMX to subscribe for additional shares in any future financings to maintain its existing percentage ownership of Millrock. 

A portion of the proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for land acquisition and exploration in the Goodpaster Mining District, Alaska, and another portion will be used for general corporate purposes.
