The Rights are priced at approximately $3.13 per Right, which reflects the five-day volume weighted average price for the common shares of Skeena (“Common Shares”) for the trading day ended March 25, 2021.

Walter Coles, Skeena’s President & CEO commented, “Skeena is delighted to welcome Tahltan as partners in the Company. Over the years we have often discussed our mutual desire to have the Tahltan Nation become owners of natural resource projects being developed in their Territory. This investment into Skeena represents a further step in an evolving relationship with the Tahltan Nation. We look forward to continuing our work with the Tahltan and gaining the support required for Skeena’s projects.”

Chad Norman Day, TCG President commented, “Tahltan Territory is home to British Columbia’s resource rich 'Golden Triangle' and a booming mineral exploration industry. Mining has always been part of our culture, both in the past and in present-day times. For thousands of years, our people prospected, mined, and utilized obsidian for tools, weaponry, and trade. More recently, Tahltans supported miners during the gold rush and have had operating mines in our homelands for multiple generations. In partnering with Skeena, the Tahltan Nation is evolving and taking significant steps forward by becoming meaningful equity partners in these projects. Ownership provides the Tahltan Nation with a strong seat at the table as we continue our pursuit towards capacity building and economic independence for the Tahltan people.” 

The offering is subject to the achievement of certain conditions precedent, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
