Stifel GMP acted as sole underwriter pursuant to the terms of the Offering, under which the Company issued 20,900,000 flow-through common shares of the Company (the “FT Shares”) at a price of C$0.27 per FT Share (the “Issue Price”). The Company is also pleased to announced that it has completed a concurrent non-brokered private placement (the “Non-Brokered Offering”, and together with the Brokered Offering, the “Offerings”) of 5,100,000 FT Shares at the Issue Price for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,377,000. In connection with the Offerings, the Company raised aggregate gross proceeds of $7,020,000.
Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, Stifel GMP received a cash commission of $338,580, and was issued 1,254,000 compensation warrants (“Compensation Warrants”).

In connection with the Non-Brokered Offering, the Company also paid a cash finder’s fee of $30,600 and issued 153,000 Compensation Warrants to an arm’s length finder. Each Compensation Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share (a “Compensation Warrant Share”) of the Company at a price of C$0.25 per common share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance.
