Further, the Company has closed, subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V"), the first tranche (the "First Tranche") of its Private Placement comprising of 7,911,250 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.40 per Unit and 286,000 common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares") at a price of $0.35 per Common Share for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,264,600.
