Vancouver, BC (August 20, 2020) Skeena Resources Limited (TSX: SKE, OTCQX: SKREF) (“Skeena” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received final approval to list the Company’s common shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”), following its graduation from the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Company’s common shares will begin trading on the TSX at the market opening, today, August 20, 2020. To ensure continued and seamless trading for the Company’s shareholders and as a result of the graduation, there will be no further trading of Skeena’s shares on the TSX Venture Exchange after Wednesday August 19, 2020. Skeena’s common shares will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange at the commencement of trading on the TSX. The trading symbol for the common shares of Skeena on the TSX will remain unchanged as SKE. The Company’s common shares will continue to be listed in the USA on the OTCQX under the symbol SKREF.
Skeena believes that a TSX listing is a consistent next step in the Company’s growth, which should facilitate access to a broader range of investors as well as provide exposure to larger pools of capital, including long-term institutional investors and large investors abroad.
Walter Coles Jr., President & CEO commented, “Skeena’s graduation to the TSX senior exchange is a natural evolution in the growth of the Company. We’ve demonstrated a very robust project at Eskay Creek while at the same time have managed to sign a deal to acquire 100% ownership of the mine. We currently have six drills turning at Eskay with more on the way. Assay results are expected shortly. The timing to improve our access to capital markets with the new TSX listing could not be better.”
Skeena Resources Limited is a junior mining company focused on developing prospective precious metal properties in the Golden Triangle of northwest British Columbia, Canada. The Company’s flagship project is the Eskay Creek gold-silver mine. Skeena is also exploring the past-producing Snip gold mine.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Skeena Resources Limited,
Walter Coles Jr.
President & CEO
