Each Unit  will consist of one common share and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”).  Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a  price of $0.50 until expiry five years from the date of closing the private placement. If the volume weighted  average trading price of the common shares of the Company is at least $0.75 per share for 20 consecutive  trading days in the period commencing twelve months after the closing date, the Company will have the  right, exercisable within three trading days thereof, to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date  which is 30 days after notice is given to the holders of the warrants of the accelerated expiry date and a  news release to that effect is given. The Company reserves the right to increase the size of the private  placement or to modify the type, nature and/or price of the Units for any reason.  

Prior to completion of the private placement Altius owned 1,083,784 common shares of RenGold  representing 1.7%. After completion of the private placement Altius will own 6,800,000 common shares  of RenGold representing 9.9%. If Altius exercise all of its Warrants, then Altius would own and control an  aggregate of 12,516,216 common shares of RenGold representing an ownership interest of approximately  16.9% (post-issuance). 

Altius purchased the Units for investment purposes. Depending on market conditions and other factors,  Altius may from time to time acquire and/or dispose of securities of RenGold or continue to hold its current  position. 

The private placement and any modification to it are subject to compliance with applicable securities laws  and to receipt of regulatory approval. The proceeds from the private placement will be used by RenGold  for general corporate purposes.
