Skeena Resources Ltd. [SKE-TSXV; SKREF-OTCQX] reported additional diamond drill core results from the Phase 1 combined campaign of definition and exploration drilling at the 100%-owned Eskay Creek Project located in the Golden Triangle region of northwestern British Columbia. The Phase 2 infill program, focused on resource category conversions for the prefeasibility study (PFS) on open-pit constrained resources, is continuing with 11 drill rigs currently active. Reference images are presented on the company’s website.
