If the daily volume weighted average trading price of the  common shares of the Company is at least $0.72 per share for 20 consecutive trading days in the period  commencing four months and a day 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 further increase the size of the private  placement or to modify the type, nature and/or price of the Units for any reason.  

The private placement is subject to receipt of regulatory approval. The Company will pay finders’ fees of  5% in cash or Units.  

Proceeds of this private placement will be used primarily for continued generative exploration,  advancement and marketing of the Company’s projects in the United States and general corporate  purposes.
