SKEENA CLOSES STRATEGIC INVESTMENT FROM FRANCO-NEVADA

On Dec. 23, 2021, Skeena Resources Ltd. closed the structured non-brokered private placement offering announced on Dec. 13, 2021, with Franco-Nevada Corp.

Skeena collected gross proceeds of $30.9-million from the sale of 1,471,739 flow-through common shares at a price of $21 per share. Franco-Nevada was the end purchaser of the common shares issued in connection with the offering. The gross proceeds of the offering will be used to incur Canadian exploration expenses. All the securities issued under this offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the closing date of the offering.

Concurrent with the closing of the offering, Skeena granted to Franco-Nevada right of first refusal over the sale of a 0.5-per-cent net smelter return (NSR) royalty over the Eskay Creek gold-silver project. In addition, Skeena and Franco-Nevada have entered into an amendment to the terms of their existing royalty agreement such that it will cover the same tenures as are covered in the existing Barrick royalty agreement.
