The FT Units were sold at a price of $0.075 per FT Unit consisting of one flow-through common share and one non flow-through common share purchase warrant. One common share purchase warrant from either the NFT Units or the FT Units will entitle the holder to purchase one non flow-through common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 for a period expiring 24 months following the closing date of the Offering.

All the securities issued in the Offering are subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the closing date, expiring February 3, 2021.
