Skeena Resources launches aggressive drill program at Eskay Creek

Skeena Resources (TSX: SKE; US-OTC: SKREF) plans to drill a combined 89,000 metres of exploration and infill drilling before the end of the year at its Eskay Creek gold-silver project in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle and has completed 46 holes covering 24,000 metres since it restarted the drill program in July.

“In September we intend to add two more drill rigs, which will bring our rig count up to eight,” Walter Coles Jr., the company’s CEO, said in a news release. “Over the next six months, we will have a steady stream of assay results from both infill and step-out exploration holes, which should make for an exciting fall.”
