12:26 PM EDT, 06/17/2020 (MT Newswires) -- Skeena Resources (SKE.V) was up 6.4% to a 52-week high after the company on Wednesday said it is ready to restart drilling at its Eskay Creek gold and silver project in British Columbia's Golden Triangle.

The company said it will start its planned 137,000 meter program late this month using two drilling rigs, rising to as many as 10 rigs to complete the work by year end.

"Skeena has spent almost $25 million at Eskay Creek since we optioned the project from Barrick. Due to the exercise of warrants expiring last week, Skeena's cash position is approaching $50 million. The company is fully funded for an exploration budget that will total approximately $45 million for the balance of the year as we look to aggressively advance Eskay Creek," chief executive Walter Coles said in a release.

Skeena shares were last seen up C$0.09 to C$1.49 on the TSX Venture Exchange, topping its prior 12-month high of C$1.40.
