The Eskay Creek Project is closest to the Tahltan communities of Dease Lake (190 km to NE, or 253 km via road), Iskut (125 km N or 170 km via road) and Telegraph Creek (142 km to N, or 362 km via road).

Skeena and the Tahltan First Nations have signed several agreements that speak to employment and contracting, permitting and regulatory requirements, environmental performance, communications and community engagement. Discussions are ongoing with Tahltan Central Government agencies to ensure that any additional sensitive or vulnerable economic, social, heritage or health value will be identified as the baseline studies for the human environment progress.

Future engagement in an appropriate manner with all communities will take place as the project is within the Early Engagement stage of the process.
