Update on Honey Badger Silver/Romios Gold Resources Agreement
In response to the increasing interest in silver projects in recent years, in 2020 Romios staked 5 historic silver prospects comprising 87 claims over 1,853 Hectares in the Thunder Bay silver camp (the “Thunder Bay Silver Claims”). In the late 1800s-early 1900s, the Thunder Bay area was home to dozens of silver mines, including the famous Silver Islet mine which produced 2.87 million ounces of silver, and there has been very little work on many of these sites since that time. The Thunder Bay Silver Claims cover three prospects with old mine workings – the Lily of the Valley, Victoria and the Federal/Copeland mines, and two more grass-roots prospects with reported silver occurrences - the Cariboo and Cloud Bay claims.
After a brief field examination in 2020, the strategic decision was made in early 2021 to sell an 80% interest in these claims to Honey Badger Silver Inc. in return for $150,000 worth of Honey Badge shares. (See Press Release – June 10, 2021) Honey Badger has extensive silver claim holdings in the Thunder Bay area and in 2022 they undertook basic prospecting and mapping programs on the Thunder Bay Silver Claims acquired from Romios. Honey Badger has subsequently acquired major silver projects in Yukon and the NWT and on October 17th, 2023 Honey Badger announced their decision to return the Thunder Bay Silver Claims to Romios (See Honey Badger Press Release).
Romios believes that several of the Thunder Bay Silver Claims still have considerable merit and warrant more focussed exploration to trace the veins along strike in an effort to locate jogs in the vein systems where they may “blow out” into wider, more mineralized sections. A program of inexpensive geophysical and geochemical surveys is now under consideration for these projects.
