Each FT Unit will be priced $0.06 per FT Unit and will consist of one “flow through” common share of the Company and one half of one non-flow-through common share purchase warrant, with each such full warrant exercisable to acquire one common share for a period of three years following the issuance thereof at a price of $0.10 per share.

As part of the private placement, cash commissions of up to 8% of the total dollars raised and compensation options equal to up to 8% of the total amount of units sold will be paid. Each compensation option will entitle the holder to purchase one non-flow-through unit of the Offering at a price equal to the Offering price.

The proceeds of the sale of the FT Units will be used to incur eligible Canadian Exploration Expenses, as such term is used pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada). The proceeds of the sale of the Non-FT Units will be used to advance the Company’s projects and for working capital purposes.
