Skeena To Restart Drilling at Eskay Creek

Receive up-to-date information about the company directly via push notification

Vancouver, BC (June 17, 2020) Skeena Resources Limited (TSX.V: SKE, OTCQX: SKREF) (“Skeena” or the “Company” - https://www.rohstoffnacht-tv.de/mediathek/play/skeena-resources-neustart-von-eskay-creek-mine-in-kanada-laeuft-nach-plan/ ) is pleased to update its exploration and development plans for the Eskay Creek gold-silver project (“Eskay Creek” or the “Project”) located in the Golden Triangle of northwest British Columbia.

Surface based drilling at Eskay Creek is on schedule to begin in late June 2020 with two surface drill rigs. Incorporating the newly developed workflows associated with the Company’s vigorous Infection Prevention Strategy (see news release dated June 4, 2020), additional drill rigs will ultimately be added to the program utilizing a staged approach. The drilling schedule will culminate with eight to ten drill rigs performing delineation and exploratory drilling across the project until December 2020.

Initially, drilling will focus on the completion of the Phase I program of infill on the 21A, 21B and 21C Zones (24,000 metres) paralleled by resource expansion drilling in the near-mine environment. The Company is permitting 137,000 metres of exploratory drilling to test both brownfield and greenfield targets.
Skeena has also engaged Dias Geophysical to perform a high-resolution, regional Induced Polarization (IP) survey and a detailed airborne gradiometer magnetics survey at Eskay Creek. These geophysical programs are expected to occur in July and August 2020.

Walter Coles, Skeena’s President and CEO commented that, “Skeena has spent almost $25 million at Eskay Creek since we optioned the project from Barrick. Due to the exercise of warrants expiring last week, Skeena’s cash position is approaching $50 million. The company is fully funded for an exploration budget that will total approximately $45 million for the balance of the year as we look to aggressively advance Eskay Creek.”
