Each Unit consisted of ten thousand (10,000) common shares (a "Common Share") of the Company plus twenty-two thousand five hundred (22,500) Flow Through Common Shares, plus one purchase warrant (a "Warrant") of the Company for each share purchased, or thirty-two thousand five hundred (32,500) warrants. Each Warrant issued will expire twenty four (24) months from the date of issue (the "Warrant Expiry Date") and will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $0.10 per Warrant Share.

While the Offering is being effected by the Company on a non-brokered basis, the Company may pay finder's fees to arm's-length third parties consisting of: (i) cash commission of up to 8% of the gross proceeds of the Offering; and (ii) broker warrants ("Broker Warrants") in an amount up to 8% of the total number of Units issued under the Offering. Each Broker Warrant will expire 24 months from the date of issue (the "Broker Warrant Expiry Date") and will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 per common share at any time up until the Broker Warrant Expiry Date. Brokers or agents that facilitate the purchase of more than 20 units, are entitled to a $0.075 strike price for their warrants, for orders less than 20 units the warrant strike price remains at $0.10.

The flow through proceeds from the Offering will be used to continue exploring the Company's Shunsby property and to advance exploration on the Company's other properties.
