The aggregate gross proceeds raised under the Offering was $5,803,253.40 through the issuance of an aggregate of 5,526,908 FT Units.

The FT Unit proceeds will be used for qualified mineral exploration expenses on the Companys projects in Canada.

In connection with the private placements for NFT Units and FT Units, the Company paid a finder''s fee to EMD Financial Inc. (EMD) equal to a cash payment of 8% of the gross proceeds raised from purchasers of the NFT and FT Units introduced to the Company by EMD, common shares of the Company equal to 4% of the total number of NFT and FT Units sold to purchasers introduced by EMD, and non-transferable warrants equal to 4% of the total number of NFT and FT Units sold to purchasers introduced by EMD (the Finder Warrants). Each Finder Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share at a price of CA$1.15 for a period of 36 months following the closing date. In connection with the NFT and FT Unit financings, EMD received a total of $722,740.27 in commission, 439,556 finders shares and 439,556 Finders Warrants.
