Finder's fees and warrants in amounts yet to be determined may be paid to persons who introduce the Company to investors.

Shares acquired by the placees, and shares which may be acquired upon the exercise of the share purchase warrants, will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the date of completion of the financing in accordance with applicable securities legislation. The proceeds of the private placement will be used to advance the Company's mineral exploration projects.
