Skeena To Restart Drilling at Eskay Creek
VANCOUVER, BC / June 17, 2020 / Skeena Resources Limited (TSXV:SKE)(OTCQX:SKREF) ("Skeena" or the "Company") 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.
