The proceeds from the sale of the FT Shares comprised in the Units will be used to incur eligible Canadian Exploration Expenses, as defined under the Income Tax Act (Canada) that will be renounced in favour of the subscribers with an effective date of December 31, 2014.
As part of the Agreement, IBK is entitled to a cash commission of 9% of the gross proceeds raised under the Offering as well as Broker Warrants (the “Broker Warrants”) equal to 10% of the aggregate Units issued.
