The Flow-Through Shares:

Each common share to be issued on a flow-through basis (a "Flow-Through Share") is offered at a price of $0.06 each, with no warrant attached. The Flow-Through Shares are divided in two categories, being the "Quebec Flow-Throughs" for which the Company will use the proceeds for a surface drilling program on the Elder, the Abcourt-Barvue and other properties located in Abitibi, in the Province of Quebec, and the "National Flow-Throughs" for which the Company will use the proceeds for mine development of the Elder gold mine, also located in Abitibi, Province of Quebec.

Pursuant to this first closing of the Offering, the Company issued 11,789,833 Flow-Through Shares for an aggregate amount of $707,390, representing $207,390 of Quebec Flow-Throughs and $500,000 of National Flow-Throughs.
