Each Warrant shall be exercisable into one Common Share at a price of $0.15 per Common Share for a period of two years from the closing date of the Offering.
The proceeds of the Unit Offering will be used for gold and copper exploration and for general working capital purposes. The proceeds of the FT offering will be used for exploration on the company’s properties in Canada. The actual allocation of net proceeds may vary depending on future operations or unforeseen events or opportunities. The closing of the Offerings is expected to occur on or before December 1, 2016 or such other date as the Company may determine (the “Closing Date”).
Finders who source funds may earn a cash commission of up to 7% of the gross proceeds raised by such finder and warrants (“Finder Warrants”) entitling the finder to purchase that number of Units @ $0.10 per Unit equal to 7% of the number of Units sold by such finder.
Existing Shareholder Exemption
Depending on demand and regulatory requirements, a portion of the Offering may be made in accordance with the provisions of the existing shareholder exemption (the “Existing Shareholder Exemption”) contained in Multilateral CSA Notice 45-313 and the various corresponding blanket orders and rules of participating jurisdictions, as well as the amendments to Rule 45-501- Ontario Prospectus and Registration Exemptions in Ontario. In addition to conducting the Offering pursuant to the Existing Shareholder Exemption, it will also be conducted pursuant to the “Accredited Investor” and other available prospectus exemptions.
The Company has set October 28, 2016 as the record date (the “Record Date”) for the purpose of determining existing shareholders entitled to purchase the Units pursuant to the Existing Shareholder Exemption. Subscribers using the Existing Shareholder Exemption will need to complete a subscription agreement and represent in writing that they meet certain requirements of the Existing Shareholder Exemption, including that they were, on the Record Date, a shareholder of the Company, and will continue to be a shareholder of the Company until the closing of the Offering. The aggregate acquisition cost to a subscriber under the Existing Shareholder Exemption cannot exceed $15,000 in a twelve-month period unless the subscriber has obtained advice from a registered investment dealer in their jurisdiction regarding the suitability of the investment. Subscribers relying on the Existing Shareholder Exemption will make a representation to the Company of this in writing. In the event that subscriptions received for the Offerings based on available exemptions exceed the maximum Unit Offering of $1,200,000, the Company may seek to increase the size of the Unit Offering and obtain Exchange approval for such an increase. In the alternative, should the Company not seek to increase the size of the Unit Offering the Units will be allocated pro rata amongst all subscribers.
The Company also reminds investors interested in participating under the Existing Shareholder Exemption that in order to participate under that exemption, expressions of interest must be received by the Company by the close of business on November 11, 2016. If you are an existing shareholder of the Company who held Common Shares as of October YYY, 2016 and are interested in participating in the Offering, you should contact Darrell Munro by email at email@example.com. Orders will be processed by the Company on a first-come first-served basis, such that it is possible that a subscription received from a shareholder may not be accepted by the Company if the Offering is over-subscribed. Any person who becomes a shareholder of the Company after the Record Date shall not be entitled to participate in the Offering under the Existing Security Holder Exemption. It is anticipated that officers and directors of the Company may participate in the Offering.
In other corporate developments; pursuant to the Company’s Deferred and Restricted Share Unit Compensation Plan, the Company has granted 293,149 Restricted Share Units (RSUs) to certain officers and consultants at $0.13 per RSU and 889,087 Deferred Share Units (DSUs) to certain Directors.

The DSUs will vest on the day after the particular director grantee leaves the Company’s board of directors.
