Avanti Mining Inc.

Upon closing of the offering, the gross proceeds from the sale of the Special Warrants will be deposited and held by an escrow agent to be released upon satisfaction of the conditions to the purchase by Avanti of the past producing Kitsault molybdenum mine and surrounding mineral tenures, located in northern British Columbia, from Aluminerie Lauralco Inc.
