Each Warrant will be exercisable by the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company (each a “Warrant Share“) at a price of C$0.20 at any time on or before the date which is 24 months after the Closing Date. The net proceeds of the Second Tranche will be used by the Company for exploration and general working capital purposes. Under applicable securities legislation and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, the securities issued in this Second Tranche are subject to a four-month hold period, expiring on July 15, 2024.

If at any time after the date which is four (4) months and one (1) day following the Closing Date, the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange, or such other stock exchange on which the Common Shares are listed or quoted, is equal to or greater than $0.25 for a period of twenty (20) consecutive trading days, the Company shall be entitled to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants such that the holders of Warrants shall only have a period of thirty (30) days to exercise the Warrants upon deemed receipt of an acceleration notice from the Company.

In connection with the closing of the Offering, the Company paid finder’s fees comprised of a cash commission and non-transferable warrants (each a “Finder Warrant“) to arm-length finders. Each Finder Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase common shares of the Company at a price of C$0.10 per common share for a period of two (2) years following the date of issuance of the Finder Warrants, the whole in accordance with the rules and policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
