Gold Projects in British Columbia

Skeena Resources Limited is a junior Canadian mining exploration company focused on developing prospective precious metal properties in the Golden Triangle of northwest British Columbia, Canada. The Company’s primary activities are the exploration and development of the past-producing Eskay Creek mine, which currently contains a combined Indicated & Inferred open-pit resource of 4 million ounces at 4.5 g/t gold equivalent. Skeena is also exploring the past-producing Snip gold mine and has completed a Preliminary Economic Assessment on the GJ copper-gold porphyry project.
