Eskay Mining Corp announced that it has teamed up with one of the world's leading economic geology research teams, the Colorado School of Mines to enhance its chances for discovery at its Eskay Creek area properties, the SIB and Corey. The research team is led by Dr Thomas Monecke, Associate Professor of Economic Geology, a globally renowned expert in volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits. His post-doctoral research encompassed the geology and formation of Barrick's world class and extremely high-grade Au-Ag-rich Eskay Creek VMS deposit, situated 2 km north of Eskay Mining's extensive land holdings. Dr. Monecke will be working in close collaboration with Dr. John DeDecker on this project. Dr DeDecker will be conducting a post-doctorate study on geochemical vectoring to ore deposits, in particular on how it pertains to VMS exploration.

Drs Monecke and DeDecker join Dr. Quinton Hennigh P Geo and Charles Greig MSc PGeo, Thomas Weis, and geologists Neil Prowse MSc and Andrew Mitchell P.Geo, who ran the 2017 and 2018 exploration programs on Eskay's SIB property, in an effort to better outline high-value exploration targets, and to better understand their geologic framework. Collectively, Eskay Mining's technical exploration team will comprise one of the most capable in the Golden Triangle of northwest British Columbia, and should be especially capable of designing and implementing exploration for Eskay-style VMS deposits.
