HoneyBadger Exploration Shareholder Letter

    TORONTO, June 4 /CNW/ - HoneyBadger Exploration (TUF:TSX-V)("HoneyBadger"
or "the Company") announces that the Letter to Shareholders dated June 1, 2009
included with the 2008 Annual Report and accompanying financial material
inadvertently contained some erroneous statements. The company retracts the
June 1 letter, and an amended version is provided below.

    Letter to the Shareholders - Corrected Version

    Dear Shareholders,

    HoneyBadger has significantly advanced the Yerington West Copper Porphyry
Project in Nevada through a year that has presented extraordinary challenges.
HoneyBadger has assembled a land position that could host copper in the size
and scale of both Quaterra Resources and PacMag Metals, both of which border
our property. This was achieved through a combination of geological
exploration led by our partner Bronco Creek Exploration, and Geotech Ltd.'s
enhanced geophysical information with their new and very exciting AirMT
airborne survey technology. This data has been reviewed and we have outlined a
number of very significant and highly credible drill targets.
    Through the process, we have diligently been working to secure a
partnership arrangement with a knowledgeable and well-established porphyry
copper expert. We expect to have this completed by the end of June.
    This arrangement could provide a solid foundation for the Company and
allow us to look for a second project that will further enhance our
exploration efforts.
    The HoneyBadger team has been challenged with the general market malaise
and low copper commodity price. We have been steadfast in our belief that
copper prices will rebound and our Yerington West Project represents a real
opportunity in a proven and safe mining environment.
    We remain committed to growing shareholder value through quality
opportunities that offer exploration success.
    We thank you and ask for your continued support.
