Honey Badger Provides Exploration and Financing Overview

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 23, 2014) - Honey Badger Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TUF) ("Honey Badger" or the "Company") concluded a successful summer exploration program at its Sagar property that continued to highlight the potential for a polymetallic Iron Oxide Copper Gold ("IOCG") discovery and identified areas that could host lode gold deposits. Due to encouraging results from the summer program the company is preparing to launch the first phase of its Fall 2014 exploration program in the coming weeks.

In order to fund further exploration work and to earn an initial interest in the Sagar property, the company is seeking to raise $3 million by way of a brokered private placement. The first phase of the fall exploration program is funded. Honey Badger has the right to earn up to a 100% interest in the property which is subject to a Virginia Mines Inc. 1.5% net smelter return royalty on certain claims. The proposed financing is critical as it will enable Honey Badger to vest on at least a 35% ownership interest in the Sagar property. All terms and conditions of the earn-in agreement were recently press released and are on the company website.

Quentin Yarie, Honey Badger's President and COO, states "Our exploration work at Sagar continues to uncover mineralization and geology that is characteristic of Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold ("IOCG") deposits. Thanks to the funding support of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), researchers from the Geological Survey of Canada and the University of Manitoba are working with our team to help classify the IOCG potential at Sagar."

The first phase of the Fall 2014 exploration program will include drilling the Waterfall, Lac Plisse and Raven IOCG targets as well as the Aureus, Kish and Eagle gold targets. Additional work will include bedrock sampling, channel sampling, geological mapping and structural analysis. The fall program will aim to identify economically significant tonnage of IOCG type mineralization as well as determining the overall potential for gold mineralization on the Sagar property.
