BRITISH COLUMBIA – Vancouver-based Skeena Resources has received the final assays from phase two drilling at the former Snip gold mine in this province’s Golden Triangle. The company is preparing a maiden resource estimate for the  project.

Highlights of the underground core results include 13.80 g/t gold over 18.0 metres, 34.73 g/t over 3.50 metres, 11.75 g/t over 5.4 metres, and 31.20 g/t over 0.8 metre.

Skeena noted that the latest results from the Eastern Twin zone are of higher grades and thicker than that reported from historical drilling. This mineralized zone strikes east-southeast with dips ranging from 30° to 90° to the southwest. It  has be traced horizontally for 1,000 metres and over a dip length of 500 metres.
