Rock, British Columbia, April 05, 2024 – Honey Badger Silver Inc. (TSXV: TUF) (“Honey Badger” or the “Company”) provides further information respecting its non-brokered placement which was the subject of its news releases of March 20 and April 4, 2024 (the “Offering”).

The Company intends to close on aggregate gross proceeds of $1,204,200, from the sale of:

  • 16,749,000 non-flow through units (“NFT Units”) at a price of $0.05 per NFT Unit for gross proceeds of $837,450; and
  • 5,642,307 flow-through shares (“FT Shares”) at a price of $0.065 per FT Share for gross proceeds of $366,750.

Each NFT Unit will consist of one common share and one half of a share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant (an “NFT Warrant”) exercisable for one common share at a price of $0.065 for 18 months following closing.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the sale of the NFT units to finance exploration programs and for general and administrative purposes. The proceeds of the sale of the FT Shares will be used to fund exploration programs on one or more of the Company’s exploration properties located in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut that will qualify as “Canadian Exploration Expenses” and once renounced, “flow-through mining expenditures”, as those terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada).

The TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) requires shareholder approval for the creation of any new “control person”, being a shareholder who holds 20% or more of an issuer’s issued and outstanding shares. For the purpose of this calculation, any warrants acquired in a financing are treated as having been exercised.

Chad Williams, the Non-Executive Chairman of Honey Badger, will be participating in the Offering.  Mr. Williams is expected to subscribe for 4,187,000 NFT Units and 3,076,923 FT Shares in the Offering, which would result in his holding 12,565,924 shares or 20.31% of the Company’s issued and outstanding common shares on a non-diluted basis. On a partially diluted basis (after giving effect to the issuance of the NFT Warrants he will be acquiring in the Offering) Mr. Williams is expected to hold 14,659,424 common shares of the Company, or 22.92% of the then issued and outstanding common shares of the Company.

To comply with the TSXV’s requirement that shareholder approval be obtained prior to closing a placement which will result in the creation of a new control person, Mr. William’s subscription for securities in the Offering will close in two tranches. At the closing of the Offering scheduled for April 10, 2024, the Company expects to close on Mr. William’s purchase of 4,187,000 NFT Units and 705,000 FT shares. This would result in his holding 19.95% of the Company’s common shares on a partially diluted basis. The closing of the remaining 2,371,923 FT Shares for which Mr. Williams is expected to subscribe would take place at a second closing after disinterested shareholder approval and TSXV approval has been obtained for his becoming a control person of the Company.

The securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a four-month and a day hold period. The Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and other approvals including the approval of the TSXV. Finder’s fees will be payable in the Offering.

The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.

March 7, 2024

White Rock, British Columbia, March 7, 2024 – Honey Badger Silver Inc. (TSXV: TUF) (“Honey Badger” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a Live Webinar on Wednesday, March 13th at 1:30PM EST to discuss similarities between Honey Badger’s wholly owned Plata Project and the adjacent Rogue Project held by Snowline Gold. To attend the Webinar, please click here to register.

The Company’s CEO, Dorian L. (Dusty) Nicol, commented, “Plata hosts spectacular high grade silver mineralization.   Recent mapping, compilation, and interpretation lead to the conclusion that Plata‘s geologic setting is similar to that of Snowline Gold’s adjacent Rogue Project. We now interpret Plata as being related to the same style of mineralization (“Reduced Intrusion Related Gold Deposit”) as the Valley discovery within the Rogue Project.  Our observations at Plata fit into a mineralization zoning model indicating that silver mineralization at Plata is the periphery of a RIRGS mineralizing system, while geophysics suggests the presence of a buried intrusive. This significantly expands the discovery potential at Plata and led to the acquisition of additional claims (see News Release dated March 5, 2024).  We look forward to presenting this concept in more detail during our upcoming webinar.”

White Rock, British Columbia, March 05, 2024 – Honey Badger Silver Inc. (TSXV: TUF) (“Honey Badger” or the “Company“), announces the acquisition of additional claims adjacent to its wholly owned Plata Project in the Yukon Territory.  Recent compilation work on the Company’s Plata Project has confirmed similarities to the adjacent exciting Rogue Project owned by Snowline Gold (TSXV: SGD). Rogue appears to be one of the most exciting and potentially one of the largest recent mineral discoveries anywhere in the world.

Honey Badger’s CEO, Dorian L. (Dusty) Nicol, commented, “Plata hosts spectacular high grade silver mineralization, traditionally interpreted as a Keno Hill analogue.   Recent mapping and compilation work confirm the similarity of Plata geology to the geologic setting at Snowline Gold’s adjacent Rogue Project where, about 30km east of Plata at the Valley discovery, recent drilling has intersected exceptional gold intercepts such as 2.48 gpt Au over 553.8 meters.  G eologic mapping during the last field season led to our current interpretation of Plata as being related to the same style of mineralization (“Reduced Intrusion Related Gold System” or RIRGS) as at Valley.  Our observations at Plata fit into a mineralization zoning model indicating that surface vein mineralization at Plata is the periphery of a RIRGS mineralizing system.  This significantly expands the discovery potential at Plata.  Our new claims cover a geophysical magnetic low which we interpret as representing a possible buried intrusion that fed the mineralizing system.”

The new claims are adjacent to the Plata Project, comprise 69 individual claims covering 1,430 hectares, and cover the heart of the geophysical magnetic low (See Figure 1).

 

Figure 2 shows the location of the Plata claims in relation to Snowline’s Rogue Project.

The claims were staked by ECEE Money Ltd. (“ECEE”), a private corporation controlled by W. Douglas Eaton, a former director of Honey Badger, with the concurrence and knowledge of Honey Badger.  ECEE has transferred ownership of the claims to Honey Badger at no cost, subject to a 2% net smelter royalty (“NSR”) on future commercial gold production.  The NSR applies only to gold.

January 23, 2024

White Rock, British Columbia, January 23, 2024 – Honey Badger Silver Inc. (TSXV: TUF) (“Honey Badger” or the “Company“), a Canadian-based company with silver projects in Canada, including the Nanisivik Project in Nunavut, reports that as of January 18th, 2024, the Canadian government has passed revisions to its mining laws aimed at boosting exploration and development in Canada’s northernmost region. The Canadian government has transferred control of mineral reserves in the Territory to the legislative assembly of Nunavut, which will now dictate economic terms for companies operating in the region. The move is expected to boost mineral exploration and development in the Territory.

The Company’s CEO, Dorian L. (Dusty) Nicol, commented, “We view this development as extremely positive for our wholly owned Nanisivik Project (the “Project”) and for mineral explorers and developers operating in Nunavut as a whole. Honey Badger continues to focus on growing the Project to an eventual resource of up to 100 million ounces of silver at a grade of 30-50 g/t.  Our target is based on the large tonnages of pyrite bodies at Nanisivik containing anomalous concentrations of silver as well as, locally, germanium, gallium, and indium, which have not been evaluated in the context of current metals prices. In addition, with the construction of a deep-sea port adjacent to Nanisivik, the pyrite bodies themselves may have significant commercial value. Nanisivik could become one of the few turnkey projects in the region with strong leverage to increasing silver prices and could be a key component of development in one of Canada’s most sparsely populated regions.

About Nanisivik

The Nanisivik Mine (near Arctic Bay, Nunavut) produced over 20 million ounces of silver between 1976 and 2002, from 17.9 million tons of ore, grading 9% zinc, 0.72% lead, and 35 grams per ton silver (1). In addition to the polymetallic orebody, previous exploration identified massive sulphide bodies (principally pyrite), totaling about 100 million tons (1,2), containing base metal and silver values not economic at the time.

The historic tonnage estimate cannot be relied upon. Additional work, including verification drilling / sampling, will be required to verify the estimate as a current mineral resource.

Amended Stock Option Plan

The Company has amended its 10% rolling stock option plan (the “Amended Option Plan“) to comply with the requirements of the new TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange“) policy governing security-based compensation which became effective on November 24, 2021. The most significant change introduced by the new policy, and is included in the Amended Option Plan, permits the exercise of stock options which are “in the money” by eligible participants, without the holder being required to have the requisite funds to exercise such stock options, through the addition of a cashless exercise and a net exercise component, and more closely aligns with plans permitted by the Exchange.

The shareholders ratified the Amended Option Plan at the Company’s annual meeting of shareholders held on December 15, 2022 (the “Meeting”). Additional details regarding the amendments are contained in the management information circular filed on SEDAR+ (www.sedarplus.ca) on November 15, 2022, in respect of the Meeting.

The Amended Option Plan remains subject to final acceptance of the Exchange.

This forward-looking information is based on reasonable assumptions and estimates of management of the Company at the time such assumptions and estimates were made, and involves known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Honey Badger to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking information.

Such factors include, but are not limited to, risks relating to capital and operating costs varying significantly from estimates; delays in obtaining or failures to obtain required governmental, environmental or other project approvals; uncertainties relating to the availability and costs of financing needed in the future; changes in equity markets; inflation; fluctuations in commodity prices; delays in the development of projects; other risks involved in the mineral exploration and development industry; and those risks set out in the Company’s public documents filed on SEDAR+ (www.sedarplus.ca) under Honey Badger’s issuer profile. Although the Company believes that the assumptions and factors used in preparing the forward-looking information in this news release are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on such information, which only applies as of the date of this news release, and no assurance can be given that such events will occur in the disclosed timeframes or at all. The Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, other than as required by law.
