VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 4, 2020 / Skeena Resources Limited (TSX.V:SKE, OTCQX:SKREF) ("Skeena" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a purchase and sale agreement to sell the Company's 100% interest in the GJ Copper-Gold Property (the "GJ Property") to Newcrest Red Chris Mining Limited ("Newcrest") for $7.5 million of cash. In addition, Skeena sold its wholly owned subsidiary, Sona Resources Corp., including the Blackdome-Elizabeth property, to Tempus Resources Ltd. for $500,000 of cash.

Walter Coles, Skeena's CEO commented, "Advancing the Eskay Creek project is Skeena's primary focus. Therefore, we are divesting the GJ Property and the Blackdome-Elizabeth property as a way to raise funds for Eskay while incurring the least amount of equity dilution possible to our shareholders."

Under the terms of the purchase and sale agreement with Newcrest, dated February 3, 2020, Skeena will sell 100% of Skeena's interest in the GJ Property in consideration for:

  • A cash payment of $7,500,000 to Skeena; and
  • The assumption by Newcrest of future payment obligations and royalties on the GJ Property, including those outlined in the Company's October 6, 2015 news release.

It is anticipated that closing of the transaction with Newcrest will occur prior to May 3, 2020. The transaction is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary consents and approvals, including the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The sale of Sona Resources to Tempus Resources Ltd. has already closed.
