(the "Corporation" or "3P") (TSX VENTURE:DOH) is pleased to announce a financing of up to $5,000,000 by the issuance of up to 20,000,000 units ("Units") of the Corporation, at a price of $0.25 per Unit, offered on a non-brokered prospectus exempt basis. 

Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Corporation and one common share purchase warrant of the Corporation, each warrant exercisable for 24 months from the date of issuance at a price of $0.70.
