The properties comprise the Plata, Groundhog and Hy, each located in proximity to major historical silver camps or workings and at such a stage as to be reasonably considered cost-effective to further advance (please refer to the Company’s press release of February 11, 2021 for property details).

In consideration for 100% interest in the properties, Honey Badger Silver has agreed to issue to Strategic Metals 34,762,104 common shares in the capital of Honey Badger Silver, being 19.9% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company after the closing of the previously announced unit offering (the “Offering”) for gross proceeds of $3 million (see news release dated February 18, 2021), which is a condition precedent of the Acquisition, and the closing of the Acquisition.
The Acquisition is expected to close on or before April 30, 2021. The Acquisition and Offering remain subject to the approval of TSX Venture Exchange.
