The Company intends to use the proceeds of this tranche for expanded geophysical surveying, claim expansion and general corporate purposes.

The Company is also pleased to announce that it will issue securities to certain directors and a previous board advisor of the Company in lieu of paying director and advisory fees that are owed to these individuals (“Securities for Fees”). Pursuant to the Securities for Fees transaction and subject to Canadian Securities Exchange approval, an aggregate of 165,000 units will be issued to two directors and a previous board advisor of the Company in lieu of paying cash fees that were accrued by these individuals. Each unit consists of one common share of the Company and one share purchase warrant of the Company and each warrant is exercisable into one common share of the Company at a price of $0.20 for a term of two years from the date of issuance.
The participation by the insiders in the Securities for Fees is considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined for the purposes of Multinational Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“). The related party transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority approved requirements pursuant to sections 5.5(a)and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 respectively, as neither the fair market value of the contemplated securities being issued to directors and officers of the Company, nor the proceeds for such securities received by the Company will exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization, as calculated in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report at least 21 days prior to completion of the Offering as the details of the participation by the related party had not been determined at that time.
