Skeena Resources Looks To Repurchase 0.5% NSR At Eskay Creek

Skeena Resources (TSX: SKE) is looking to repurchase a net smelter return royalty currently outstanding on its flagship property. To do so, the firm announced on Friday a $30 million bought deal financing to fund the purchase.

The NSR consists of just a 0.5% royalty, which can be repurchased from Barrick Gold Corp (TSX: ABX) for the sum of $17.5 million. The Eskay Creek property currently has a total 2.0% NSR outstanding.

The financing will see the firm sell just under 5.0 million common shares of the company at a price of $6.05 per each under a bought deal offering, raising gross proceeds of $30.0 million in the process. No warrants are being offered in connection with the financing.

A 15% over-allotment option is also outstanding on the financing, which is being lead by Raymond James.
