Client Needs: A maiden resource was announced in July 2020 and exploration efforts have recently completed a second drilling campaign with the aim of expanding the resource. In September 2018, Skeena granted Hochschild an option to earn a 60% undivided interest in Snip by spending twice the amount Skeena had spent since it originally optioned Snip from Barrick.
