Millrock Terminates Option on Divide Property, Seward Peninsula, Alaska

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 2, 2009) - Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MRO) ("Millrock" or the "Company") announces that it has terminated its exploration agreement with Alix Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AIX) with respect to the Divide Property, near Nome, Alaska.

Previously, the Company could have earned a 50% interest in the Divide project by sharing costs of exploration with Alix. Drilling by the partners in 2007 and 2008 identified zones of high grade gold mineralization in quartz veins, and lower grade, flat-lying structural zones.

Millrock President & CEO Gregory Beischer stated: "While our exploration team made some significant discoveries at Divide, we have concluded that there is limited potential for a multi-million ounce gold deposit. Given the escalating property holding costs the Company has elected to deploy its resources elsewhere."
