The Company has agreed to pay finder fees of 6% on a portion of the financing and to issue 80,250 finder warrants with each finder warrant exercisable into one common share of the Company at a price of $0.45 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of closing. If at any time after the closing date, the closing price for the common shares on the TSX-V trades above $0.75 for 10 consecutive trading days, the Company may provide written notice of acceleration of the expiry date of the finder warrants.
The flow-through shares have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws.
