Hong Kong Company Invests in Skeena Resources Ltd. for Exploration of Precious Metals


Skeena Resources Limited, a Canadian mining exploration company, announced a strategic investment from Gold Mountains Asset Management. This investment will further drilling and exploratory activities in the northwestern region of British Columbia that is known as the Golden Triangle.

Gold Mountains Asset Management is a subsidiary of Zijin Mining Group Ltd., a major mining group based in China, and is the anchor investor of this investment valued at $6 million CAD. Skeena Resources focuses on developing prospective precious and base metal properties in the Golden Triangle region, which hosts some of Canada’s most significant mineral deposits. Skeena Resources works closely with the Tahltan First Nation throughout the project, through agreements with the Tahltan Central Government.

British Columbia’s trade and investment team in Hong Kong played a key role in assisting Skeena Resources. Our representatives cultivated a strong relationship with Gold Mountains Asset Management, and provided recommendations of investment opportunities in the province’s natural resources sector.  Correspondingly, the Hong Kong office also engaged with Skeena Resources for several years, including hosting an investor round-table for Skeena Resources and supporting Skeena’s executives’ visits to Hong Kong.

British Columbia is rich in natural resources and has over 150 years of mining history.  The province is internationally recognized as a centre of expertise in mining, environmental engineering, mine safety and geoscience.  To learn more about companies in British Columbia’s thriving mining sector, contact us at International@gov.bc.ca for details on our services, or follow us on LinkedIn or Twitter.
