The FT Financing will consist of up to 9,090,909 units; each unit will consist of one common share of the Company, on a flow-through basis (a “FT Share”) and one-half of one share purchase warrant, at a price of $0.11 per unit for gross total proceeds of up to $1,000,000. The NFT Financing will consist of up to 2,777,777 units; each unit will consist of one common share of the Company, on a non-flow through basis (a “NFT Share”) and one full share purchase warrant, at a price of $0.09 per unit for gross total proceeds of up to $250,000.
Each whole common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”) will be exercisable for the purchase of an additional common share of the Company, on a non-flow through basis (each, a “Warrant Share”) for a term of 48 months at an exercise price of $0.20 per share. In the event the common shares of the Company close at a price of not less than $0.30 per share for at least 20 consecutive trading days at any time beginning four months and one day after the date of issuance of the Warrants, the term of the Warrants may be accelerated upon written notice from the Company. Upon such notice being provided, the holders of the Warrants will have 30 days to exercise the Warrants, failing which they will expire and be of no further force or effect.

Finder’s fees of up to 6% may be paid on portions of the private placement made by third parties who are introduced by the finder/broker.
Closing of the private placement is expected to occur on or about December 18, 2017 and is subject to receipt of regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The FT Shares, the NFT Shares, the Warrants, any Warrant Shares and any securities issued in payment of finder’s fees will be subject to a four-month hold period that will run from the date of issuance.
The securities being offered will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended and may not be offered or sold within the United States absent registration or an exemption from the registration requirements.
