Full Metal and Millrock to Commence Drilling at Inmachuk; Silver-Lead-Zinc Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 6, 2007) - Full Metal Minerals (TSX VENTURE:FMM) and Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MRO) are pleased to announce that a core drill is being mobilized to the Inmachuk Property on the Seward Peninsula in Alaska, with drilling to commence imminently.

Millrock has the option to earn a 60% interest in the property from Full Metal Minerals. Exploration expenditures totaling US$335,000 are required under the Option Agreement for 2007. Drilling will target carbonate replacement style (CRD) silver-lead-zinc mineralization at the Hannum zone: five holes totaling 750 meters are planned.

Both sediment-hosted gold and CRD silver-lead-zinc prospects are located on the Inmachuk property, upstream from a placer district that has historically produced 300,000+ ounces of gold. Significant carbonate-replacement mineralized zones have been identified at Hannum and Harry's Creek. The occurrences are 4,300 feet (1,300 meters) apart and appear to be at the same stratigraphic level. Previous surface testing for continuity between the two zones has been difficult due to poor exposures and permafrost. The Hannum Creek Prospect is typified by an extensive surface gossan - historic channel samples collected from trenches completed by Bunker Hill Mining Company in the 1960's include 15% Pb, 1.5% Zn, 2.2 ounces of Ag/ton, and 0.23% Sb over a 51-foot (15.5 metre) width. The Bunker Hill soil program identified an anomalous area 4,900 feet (1,500 metres) by 1,600 feet (500 metres) in which soils returned values greater than 250 ppm lead and 500 ppm zinc. In 1966, Bunker Hill completed 15 diamond core holes totaling 1,995 feet (608 meters), due to an underpowered drill rig the deepest hole was only 250 feet (75 metres) deep. Oxidized sulphide-bearing carbonate rocks were reported. The targets remained untested at depth. (Note: Full Metal and Millrock caution that the Bunker Hill records, though relevant, are historical in nature and have not been independently reviewed, are not NI 43-101 compliant and should not be relied upon.)

Work completed by Full Metal during 2006 identified a 3,600 foot (1,100 metre) by 1,300 foot (400 metre) northwest trending silver-lead-zinc anomaly between Harry's Creek and Hannum Creek. Lead values ranged from trace to 4,220 ppm, while zinc values ranging from trace to 5,390 ppm. The soil anomaly is coincident with an electromagnetic conductor identified previously by Bunker Hill. This target has not been previously drilled.

The 2007 exploration program at Inmachuk will be managed by Millrock Resources. The exploration will be performed under the supervision of, Greg Beischer, CPG, President and CEO of Millrock Resources and a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Drill cores will be cut in half using a diamond saw, with one-half placed in sealed bags. Samples will be shipped to ALS-Chemex Labs facility in Fairbanks, Alaska. A sample quality control/quality assurance program is in place. Robert McLeod, P.Geo, Vice-President Exploration for Full Metal Minerals, prepared and approved the information contained in this release.

Full Metal has twelve active projects in Alaska and one in the Yukon Territory. Drill Results are expected during the next few months from the 40 Mile Silver-Lead-Zinc Project, Lucky Shot and CJ Gold Projects, Mt. Andrew Copper-Gold-Iron Project, and Boulder Creek Uranium Project as well as surface exploration programs at all other Properties. Full Metal is a generative exploration company with six active Joint Venture Agreements.
