Skeena’s highlights from 2021 include the creation of the Tenh Dẕetle Conservancy which preserves 3,526 hectares of land in Tahltan Territory, the investment of C$122 million from the Company into the British Columbia economy, and the completion of a socioeconomic baseline study of the Tahltan Territory.
