Northwestern B.C’s Best in Class Metals Exploration
Walter Coles Jr., President & CEO of Skeena Resources speaks about the company’s two flagship projects in Northwestern British Columbia that were high grade past producing mines.
“Skeena is best in class for precious metals and base metals exploration in the Golden Triangle of Northwestern British Columbia. Our two flagship projects are the Snip and Eskay Creek projects. Both of these projects were very high grade past producing mines that operated primarily in the 1990s. In the case of Eskay, it operated into the early 2000s. So, they operated during a period when metal prices were very low and that was our whole idea of acquiring these projects is because there’s an opportunity to step back into past producing mines, revitalize them and get them operating again. Our plans are to keep our heads down and stay focused on the assets that we have, push them ahead as quickly as we can and get these mines back in production. We’re at the resource delineation stage. It’s a word right now defining how much gold, silver are still left at these projects. But we expect to very quickly be able to move towards a PEA, pre-feasibility and hopefully put these projects back into production in a very fast time frame. We spent a lot of time and effort on our First Nations relationships. Also, our relationships with government and I would argue that in terms of exploration capability we are the best company in that area of the world.” – Walter Coles Jr., President & CEO of Skeena Resources
