- Gap SK-21-945: 90 metres grading 0.99 g/t gold and 6.5 g/t silver (1.08 g/t gold-equivalent);
- Gap SK-21-946: 43.4 metres at 1.3 g/t gold and 31.4 g/t silver (1.72 g/t gold-equivalent); and
- Gap SK-21-927: 59.9 metres at 2.14 g/t gold and 14.6 g/t silver (2.33 g/t gold-equivalent).
The brand new zone is exterior the pit-constrained assets on the challenge, positioned within the Golden Triangle of British Columbia. It lies about 200 metres east of the high-grade 21A zone and mineralization begins about 15 metres beneath floor. The world was examined throughout historic drilling, however the 23 zone was missed. The zone stays open in all instructions.
Skeena additionally drilled the 22 zone and Japanese Limb targets within the fourth quarter of 2021. Gap SK-21-927 intersected 21.6 metres assaying 3.39 g/t gold and 4.8 g/t silver (3.45 g/t gold-equivalent) about 200 metres southeast of the 22 zone. That intersection incorporates two greater grade intersections: 0.7 metre at 59.1 g/t gold and 61.5 g/t silver (59.92 g/t gold-equivalent) and 0.95 metre at 19.55 g/t gold and seven.4 g/t silver (19.65 g/t gold-equivalent). No vital grades had been returned from the Japanese Limb.
The newly launched assays come from Skeena’s 35,000-metre drill program to check close to floor targets throughout the property. Thus far, 72 holes have been drilled for a complete of 12.890 metres. This system can be accomplished after drilling on the Albino waste facility is accomplished within the second quarter of this yr.
The property hosts the previous Eskay Creek mine that produced 3.3 million ouncesof gold and 160 million oz. of silver from 1994 to 2008.
