I had the pleasure of catching up with Millrock Resources (TSX-V: MRO) CEO Greg Beischer. Millrock continues to execute the prospect generator model and most recently struck a deal to vend its exploration projects in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle District to Sojourn Exploration. Greg shared the details of the transaction as well as the dream team of BC geologists Sojourn has assembled.

First Cobalt (TSX-V: FCC) CEO Trent Mell updated us on the recent results in Ontario. First Cobalt hit high-grade cobalt, broad mineralization, and near surface cobalt and silver.

I also talked with Almaden Minerals (TSX: AMM) CEO Morgan Poliquin. Almaden recently made a big hire, appointing Laurence Morris as VP of Projects and Operations. Mr. Morris has the experience and credentials to move the Ixtaca Project from feasibility through to production.

Blue Sky Uranium (TSX-V: BSK) CEO Niko Cacos went over the latest drill results from the Amarillo Grande Project. The assays intercepted high-grade uranium over significant widths. Keep an eye out for the release of a maiden resource in the next month.

Lastly, Otis Gold (TSX-V: OOO) CEO Craig Lindsay talked about the upcoming catalysts at the Kilgore Gold Project in Idaho. An updated resource estimate will be out in the Spring and should exceed a million ounces.

That’s all for now. This is Gerardo Del Real with the Resource Stock Digest weekly recap.
