About the Thunder Bay Silver/Cobalt Camp
Honey Badger has secured a large land package in the historic Thunder Bay Silver District. The Company’s three properties, collectively known as the Thunder Bay Silver/Cobalt Camp are prospective for multi-element silver mineralization similar to that of the Cobalt District. All properties are ideally located close to roads, power lines, infrastructure, and skilled labour force. 

The Company has initiated a systematic exploration program at the Thunder Bay Silver/Cobalt Camp. Airborne geophysics, including electromagnetic and airborne magnetic surveys, are underway to pinpoint geophysical contrasts and define main structural controls. Field work will focus on the geophysical targets. Rock samples are being collected and analysed using a Shortwave Infrared Spectrometer (SWIR) to examine alteration and will be subsequently assayed. Following the geophysical analysis, geochemical analysis and historical data compilation, drill targets will be selected. A diamond drilling program is planned in the coming months.
