Each Unit will consist of one common share and one share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") of the Company. Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share for a period of three years from closing at a price of $0.23 per share.
The proceeds received from the sale of the Units will be used to fund programs on the Company's Spanish Mountain and Spanish Creek properties and for general working capital. A finders' fee equal to 5.0% of the gross proceeds on a portion of the private placement will be payable in kind by the issuance of Units. All of the securities issued in connection with the private placement will be subject to a four month hold period. The private placement is subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
