NR: 16-05

Skeena Resources Limited (TSX.V: SKE) (“Skeena” or the “Company”) believes the allegations by Eilat Exploration Ltd. (“Eilat”) and its affiliated company Arkaroola Resources Ltd., are unfounded and without merit. Eilat filed lawsuits in the Supreme Court of British Columbia over its sale of the Spectrum gold project in northwest B.C. to Skeena pursuant to an asset purchase agreement dated October 28, 2014.

Skeena is not commenting further at this time as these matters are before the courts.
