We report on millimetric continuum observations of two bright compact HII regions, which have been observed for the first time in this frequency range. For the two observed regions (G291.6-0.5 and G291.3-0.7), we derive the flux densities at the two observed wavelengths (1.25 and 2 mm) as well as the spectral index and the temperature of the surrounding dust by fitting a modified blackbody curve to our results combined with IR values obtained from the literature. We also estimate the dust mass and the bolometric luminosity of the two regions.
