The Company wishes to clarify that the 27,777,778 Units of the Company acquired by Indus were sold at a price of C$0.18 per Unit for gross proceeds of C$5,000,000; not C$0.15 per Unit as disclosed in the Circular. In addition, the exercise of price of the warrants comprising part of the Units sold to Indus is C$0.35 per share; not C$0.18 per share. All other information regarding Indus and the potential change in control of the Company resulting from the above-noted private placement as disclosed in the Circular remains the same.
