Skeena Announces Discovery of New Mineralization Intersecting 2.15 g/t AuEq over 40.67 metres
VANCOUVER, BC / November 22, 2022 / Skeena Resources Limited (TSX:SKE)(NYSE:SKE) ("Skeena" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the discovery of new Rhyolite-hosted mineralization located east of the 22 Zone as part of the recently completed 2022 regional and near mine exploration drilling campaigns at the Eskay Creek gold-silver Project ("Eskay Creek" or the "Project") in the Golden Triangle of British Columbia. Analytical results and reference images from recently completed drill holes are detailed in this release as well as on the Company's website.
Discovery of New Mineralization East of 22 Zone
Exploratory drill hole SK-22-1054 has discovered a new occurrence of Rhyolite-hosted mineralization in an area with no historical drill testing and beyond the extents of Eskay Creek's currently defined pit-constrained resources. Intersecting 1.79 g/t Au, 32.0 g/t Ag (2.15 g/t AuEq) over 40.67 m, SK-22-1054 is situated 200 metres east of the 22 Zone starting at a vertical depth of only 23 metres below surface.
Hosted entirely within Rhyolite breccias, this discovery has the style of mineralization, alteration and geochemical signature consistent with feeder style mineralization encountered throughout the main Eskay Creek Deposits. This new discovery remains open in all directions and additional work will be required to determine the geometry of the mineralization.
