ONTARIO – Toronto-based Honey Badger Exploration has received assays for the first six holes this season at its Beaver silver property in the Thunder Bay district. Drilling was carried out to follow up on the successful 2018 drill program.
Four of the holes indicated that the Beaver vein extends 35 metres down dip. And a second high grade silver vein, distinct from the Beaver vein, was intersected. The new vein was cut by hole BM-19-014 over an undetermined length and assayed 69.2 g/t silver, 0.11% lead and 0.29% zinc (87.8 g/t silver equivalent).
The same hole – BM-19-014 – also cut the Beaver vein for a true width of 1.9 metre at 1,004 g/t silver, 0.11% lead and 0.33% zinc (1,025 g/t silver equivalent), including 1,674 g/t silver, 0.14% lead and 0.42% zinc (1,701 g/t silver equivalent) over a true length of 1.1 metre.
Honey Badger’s Thunder Bay project include the Beaver Silver, Silver Mountain and Mink Mountain silver properties. There are a total of 12 past producing, high grade mines on the property. The company says it will also investigate the cobalt potential of the project, although no new assays for cobalt were presented at press time.
