The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to pursue land acquisitions, for exploration expenditures and for general corporate purposes.
The Offering will be completed (i) by way of a short form prospectus to be filed in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario, (ii) on a private placement basis in the United States pursuant to exemptions from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) and (iii) outside Canada and the United States on a basis which does not require the qualification or registration of any of the Company’s securities under domestic or foreign securities laws.

In connection with the Offering, the Underwriters will receive a cash commission of 7.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering and that number of non-transferable compensation options (the “Compensation Options”) as is equal to 7.0% of the aggregate number of Units sold under the Offering.
