We remain positive on the underlying fundamentals for commodities as the current cycle continues to build and look forward to providing additional project updates as our exploration programs get underway.”
Each whole share purchase warrant is exercisable into one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.50 per share for a period of 30 months from the date of closing. Subject to approval by the Exchange, if the closing share price five (5) trading days prior to the end of the 30-month warrant period is at or below $0.50, the Company shall, upon written request by a warrant holder, extend expiry of such warrants for an additional six (6) months.
Closing of the Offering is expected on or about June 8, 2022, subject to certain customary conditions, including, but not limited to, acceptance of the Exchange.
