"Exploration will begin with a deep-imaging VTEM airborne geophysical survey, which has been employed to great effect by Garibaldi Resources," Eskay said.
Shares in the Eric Sprott-backed Garibaldi shot up last year on possible Voisey's Bay parallels at its E&L nickel project and the company last week closed an upsized C$13 million (US$10.2 million) financing for exploration at its Golden Triangle properties.
Eskay is offering flow-through and working capital units to fund its 2018 exploration plans.
It intends to focus on the western part of its Corey property adjacent to E&L and will fly the survey over "the length of the prospective belt … extending southeast over the Red Lightning nickel-copper trend".
The company said it had developed a highly effective and flexible plan with "contingencies for various outcomes at several stages".
The company had a working capital deficiency of C$229,723 at the end of November.
Its shares closed up 2c or 8.33% to C26c on Friday, capitalising it at $28.7 million.
