The net proceeds received by the Company from the Offering will be used for exploration on the Company's Tatogga property in British Columbia and for working capital and general corporate purposes.

The closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about August 17, 2017, and is subject to the receipt of regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
