Mill City Completes First Phase Exploration at Ham, Black, Ross & Hobo Properties, Tombstone Gold Belt

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 22, 2011) - Mill City Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MC)(FRANKFURT:NJ6) ("Mill City" and/or the "Company") is pleased to announce that first phase exploration has been completed at the Ham, Black, Ross and Hobo properties, located in the Tombstone Gold Belt between the former Brewery Creek gold mine and Ryan Gold's Ida-Oro property. A total of 264 soil samples and eight rock samples were collected during reconnaissance-scale prospecting and soil sampling traverses. These four properties together with the Marny & Track properties comprise the Company's Tombstone Gold project in which Mill City can earn a 100% interest from Strategic Metals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SMD).

Although the properties are largely covered with thick vegetation, prospecting successfully identified a number of gossanous talus slopes, mainly on the Ham property which directly adjoins the Ida-Oro property. Three samples, each composed of several rock chips from different parts of those gossans, yielded encouraging results. Analyses yielded 107 to 207 ppb gold along with elevated values for gold pathfinder elements including silver, arsenic, bismuth, lead, antimony and tellurium.

The Company is awaiting results from the soil samples that were collected during the prospecting traverses. Once those results are available, a second phase exploration program will be designed to systematically follow up the most promising results.
