CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 29, 2011) -Mill City Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MC)(FRANKFURT:NJ6) ("Mill City" and/or the "Company") is pleased to announce that exploration has commenced at the Mount Hinton property. Mill City has an option to acquire a 100% interest in the 400 claim property owned by Rockhaven Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:RK) ("Rockhaven") covering approximately 82 square kilometers located in the Keno Hill mining district of Yukon, Canada.

A two-phase exploration program has been recommended and is being carried out by Archer, Cathro & Associates (1981) Limited. Exploration is designed to evaluate the continuity of known high-grade gold-silver vein zones and to explore for bulk tonnage gold and/or silver targets that are indicated by previously completed soil geochemical surveys.

Phase 1 will consist of 6,000 meters of excavator trenching and is budgeted at $600,000. Phase 2 will consist of 2,200 meters of reverse circulation percussion drilling and 2,000 meters of diamond drilling. The recommended percussion drilling includes 40 to 75 holes ranging between 30 and 60 meters deep. The recommended diamond drilling includes 15 to 25 holes to test down dip of the best mineralization exposed in trenches. Phase 2 is budgeted at $1,400,000.

The Mount Hinton property is directly accessible by a 10 km all-weather road from Keno City and consists of two claim blocks that total 400 mineral claims and covers 82 sq km. The Yukon's hydroelectric power grid extends to Alexco Resource Corp.'s Bellekeno silver mine, which is located 3 km north of the Mount Hinton claim block and lies along a road system that accesses the northern part of the Mount Hinton property.
