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.

October 17, 2023

, Ontario, October 17, 2023 – Honey Badger Silver Inc. (TSXV: TUF) (“Honey Badger” or the “Company“) announces that on October 16, 2023, it signed a Purchase Agreement with SSR Mining Inc. (“SSR”) to acquire 100% of SSR’s Sunrise Lake Silver Project (“Sunrise Lake”) in the Northwest Territories. Sunrise Lake contains a historic silver resource of approximately 12.8 million ounces in the Indicated category plus 13.9 million ounces Inferred. This is a significant step in Honey Badger’s ongoing strategy to acquire quality silver projects at low cost in favorable and low-risk jurisdictions.

Terms of the acquisition are that the Company is acquiring Sunrise Lake for zero cash consideration. SSR will retain a 4% net smelter royalty (NSR) on any future production from the project.  Half (2%) of this NSR can be purchased by Honey Badger at any time prior to commencement of construction at the project for US$ 10 million, but the Company has no obligation to do so.

The Company’s CEO, Dorian L. (Dusty) Nicol, commented, “Our corporate strategy is based on our thesis that the price of silver is poised for an increase because of increased silver demand for solar panel use and as a financial asset coupled with challenging mine supply issues (Silver Instistute’s World Silver Survey, 2023).  By continuing to acquire high-quality silver projects at a low cost in favorable jurisdictions as the mining industry continues to struggle, we are positioning our shareholders for an increase in value when/if the price of silver increases.  For investors who believe in the future of silver, shares of Honey Badger offer high exposure to silver price increases.  Sunrise Lake fits perfectly into our strategy!  In addition to the historical resource defined to date, we believe the project has exploration potential, is being acquired for no cash consideration, and has minimal annual holding costs.  Significant work was done by previous owners defining the current resource, including the completion of over 20,000 meteres of diamond drilling.”

Cachinal Update

The Company will not be proceeding with the proposed acquisition of the Cachinal Project, Chile (see news releases dated February 15 and August 11, 2023), and the purchase agreement between the Company and Aftermath Silver Inc. has lapsed.

Romios Update

The Company has determined that it is not in the Company’s best interests to proceed with the further exploration of the mineral rights located in northwestern Ontario which it acquired from Romios Gold Resources (“Romios”), and it has terminated the agreement with Romios which was the subject of its news releases dated June 10, 2021 and July 26, 2021 (the “Romios APA”).  The Company plans to transfer the properties back to Romios in accordance with the terms of the Romios APA.

About Sunrise Lake

Sunrise Lake is located in the Northwest Territories, Canada, 130 kilometers northeast of Yellowknife, and hosts silver-gold and base metal mineralization outlined by 21,774 meters of surface diamond drilling since its discovery in 1987. The Sunrise Lake deposit is a volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit comprising a steeply dipping lens three-to-four meters thick, 120 meters wide and 190 meters long. Underlying the mineralization is lower grade disseminated mineralization up to about 50 meters in thickness.  Numerous exploration targets have been identified on the property.  The project comprises six contiguous mining leases totaling 1,621 hectares, with annual
lease payments of about $8,000 and no minimum work commitments.

Sunrise Lake has an estimated historical resource comprising Indicated: 1.522 million tonnes grading 262 grams/tonne silver, 6.0% zinc, 2.4% lead, 0.08% copper, and 0.67 grams/tonne gold and Inferred: 2.555 million tonnes grading 169 grams/tonne silver, 4.4% zinc, 1.9% lead, 0.07% copper, and 0.51 grams/tonne gold.  This represents contained silver of approximately 12.8 million ounces Indicated and 13.9 million ounces Inferred.  Expressed as silver equivalent ounces(1), the contained metal isapproximately28.7million ounces silver equivalent Indicated and 35 million ounces silver equivalent Inferred.

  • Silver equivalent (Ag eq) ounces were calculated assuming 100% metallurgical recoveries and metal prices of silver $23/ounce; gold $1,920/ounce; zinc $1.14/pound; lead $1.00/pound; and copper $3.80/pound.


Comments on the Mineral Resource Estimate

 

The mineral resource estimate quoted above was prepared by Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. for Silver Standard Resources Inc. in 2003.  It is classed as a historic mineral resource estimate.  A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify this historic tonnage estimate as a current mineral resource and the Company is not treating the estimate as a current mineral resource. The historic resource estimate cannot be relied upon.  Additional work, including verification drilling / sampling and remodeling, will be required to verify the estimate as a current mineral resource.  In addition, the assessment of economic viability would need to be redone using current or foreseeable metals prices, which are higher than those used in the 2003 estimate.

Resources in this historical resource estimate were estimated using a classical polygonal method.  Intercepts were composited primarily using a geological cut-off based on the sulphide content and a nominal 30 g/t Ag grade. Internal values below 30 g/t were included for geological continuity if the composite remained above cut-off.  The following metals prices were assumed: silver US$5.50 per ounce; gold US$400 per ounce; zinc US$0.45 per pound; lead US$0.25 per pound; and copper US$0.80 per pound.

 

A portion of the mineral resource at Sunrise Lake is not compliant with NI 43-101 guidelines due to missing QA/QC data and density measurements in the historic data base.  QA/AC and density questions could be addressed by twinning a limited number of significant historic mineralized intercepts.

Toronto, Ontario, September 18, 2023 – Honey Badger Silver Inc. (TSXV: TUF) (“Honey Badger” or the “Company“) announces its plans for exploration work on its wholly owned Nanisivik Project near Arctic Bay, Nunavut. The Company staked claims totaling 5,723 hectares over the Nanisivik Mine area in 2022. 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 Company’s CEO, Dorian L. (Dusty) Nicol commented, “Our target at Nanisivik is an eventual resource of up to 100 million ounces of silver at a grade of 30-50 grams per ton silver. The prospectivity is supported by the reported large tonnages of pyrite bodies at Nanisivik containing anomalous concentrations of silver as well as, locally, germanium, gallium, and indium. These have not been evaluated in light of current metals prices. Our objective is to evaluate these zones to ascertain whether, in light of current metals prices, there may be concentrations of commercial interest. In addition, with a deep-sea port being constructed adjacent to the Nanisivik Mine, the pyrite bodies themselves may have significant commercial value.”

Honey Badger has mobilized a team to undertake initial mapping and sampling of the outcropping massive sulphide target. Results of this field work will be reported as they are received.

The Company also announces that the Board of Directors has approved the grant of options to directors, officers, employees, and consultants of the Company for the purchase of up to 549,000 shares in the Company exercisable at a price of $0.09 for a period of five years from date of grant. The grant is pursuant and subject to the terms and conditions of the Company’s existing stock option plan and is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and all regulatory requirements.

Technical information in this news release has been approved by Dorian L. (Dusty) Nicol, the Company’s CEO (PG, FAusIMM), and Qualified Person (QP) for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101.

August 24, 2023

Toronto, Ontario, August 24, 2023 – Honey Badger Silver Inc. (TSXV: TUF) (“Honey Badger” or the “Company“)is pleased to provide an update on its ongoing exploration work at its wholly owned Plata Silver Project, Yukon.  The project is located in eastern Yukon, adjacent to Snowline Gold Corp.’s Rogue Project.  Field work completed this year was undertaken by a crew contracted from Archer Cathro & Associates (1981) Limited and included prospecting, geological mapping, and geochemical sampling.  A total of 308 soil and 56 rock chip samples were collected and are being assayed.  Assay results will be released when they have been received and interpreted.  The objective of this year’s field program was to further define the exploration targets at Plata and to define drill targets for future testing.

The Company’s CEO, Dorian L. (Dusty) Nicol, commented, “We remain very excited about the exploration potential at our Plata Project.  Our confidence in Plata’s potential has been fueled by recent announcements by Snowline Gold Corp.from their Rogue Project, adjacent to Plata.  Our geologic mapping this year continues to identify mineralization in a geologic setting similar to Rogue, associated with structures that provided pathways for mineralizing fluids from intrusions.  We look forward to receiving the assay results from this season’s sampling so that we can interpret them and plan the next steps of work.  Meanwhile, the field crews have mobilized to our Groundhog andClear Lake projects.”

Multiple new zones of mineralization were observed during the program, associated with previously identified soil geochemical anomalies.  Mineralization observed comprised sulphides and iron oxides associated with silicification and quartz-veining.  Field observations will be collated with assay data when they become available.  This will lead to recommendations for the next phase of work on this project.

The map below shows the location of the Company’s Plata Project in relation to Snowline Gold Corp.’s Rogue Project, where significant gold mineralization is being discovered, including a drill intercept of  553.8 metres of 2.48 g/t Au, beginning from surface (Snowline Gold News Release dated August 3, 2023).  Mineralization at Rogue is associated with Cretaceous-age intrusive rocks that comprise the Tintina Belt of gold deposits, including the Fort Knox in Alaska and Eagle deposits near Mayo in Yukon.  The geologic setting at Plata is similar, with evidence of intrusive rocks of the same age and fracture and vein style mineralization.

 

Technical information in this news release has been approved by Heather Burrell, P.Geo., a senior geologist with Archer, Cathro & Associates (1981) Limited, and Qualified Person (QP) for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101.
