GOLD: Skeena drills 31 g/t over 4.5 metres are Snip

BRITISH COLUMBIA – Where better to find high grade gold than in an old, high grade gold mine? That is exactly what Vancouver’s Skeena Resources is doing at the closed Snip gold mine in the Liard mining division.

Drilling could hardly be going better. Skeena recently intersected 16.24 g/t Au (uncut) over 13.5 metres including 30.99 g/t Au over 4.5 metres approximately 200 metres into the footwall below the historic Twin zone stoping area. Another hole cut 49.4 g/t over 0.9 metres and 33.07 g/t over 2.4 metres. And a third  hole returned 59.5 g/t over 1.4 metres and 21.3 g/t over 1.15 metres.

Skeena said that these intersections along with historic intervals suggest the presence of at least two new high grade vein structures that remain open along strike.

The current drilling program is designed to confirm and expand on historical drill results. Learn about the history of the Snip mine at
