Skeena Resources Announces Flow Through Financing Hours After Closing Financing Package With Franco-Nevada

Skeena Resources (TSX: SKE) is swallowing up whatever capital it can get its hands on. The company last night revealed it would be conducting a flow through financing, less than 24 hours after securing a financing package from Franco-Nevada.

The offering posted last night consists of $10 million that is to be raised via flow through financing. The arrangement will see 1.2 million shares sold at $8.53 per each, proceeds from which will be used for further exploration in the Golden Triangle of BC.

This financing follows an $81 million financing package that it closed with Franco-Nevada that was announced Monday morning. That package saw the sale of a 1.0% net smelter return royalty for $56 million, combined with a $25 million unsecured debenture bearing interest at 7%.

The debt can convert into equity at $7.70 per share, which at the time of announcement amounted to a 35% premium.

As of September 30 Skeena reported a cash position of $38.0 million, offset by accounts payable of $31.4 million.

Skeena Resources last traded at $6.06 on the TSX.
