(TSX-V: TUF) (“Honey Badger” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce completion of a summer work program at its wholly-owned Groundhog property in the Yukon. Groundhog is one of three high-grade silver projects acquired by Honey Badger in June of 2021,along with Plata and Hy,that is well situated and displays favourable geology analogous to nearby past producing mines. The Company engaged Archer, Cathro& Associates (1981) Limited, the established leader in Yukon mineral discoveries, to oversee the work program.
The Company is also pleased to report it has received a maximum $22,800 grant allowed under the Yukon Mineral Exploration Program (YMEP) towards funding the Groundhog 2022 program.

We look forward to having these highly prospective targets advanced while continuing to assess new opportunities within this substantial land package”.
Mr. Thorose added, “We are also very appreciative to receive the support and confidence of the Yukon Government and Geological Survey for providing us with funding assistance.”
2022 Groundhog Program Overview
The 2022 work program at Groundhog comprised soil sampling and detailed structural and lithological mapping of previously identified showings to understand their extents, character, and structural/stratigraphic relationships relative to each other. The program was completed by a crew of four people from a tent camp.
In all, 49 rock samples, including 11 chip samples were collected from seven showings on the property. In addition, 488 soil geochemical samples were collected on 4 soil grids in the western and south-western parts of the property in areas lacking coverage.
