Each unit was comprised of one common share in the capital of Jadela and one common share purchase warrant.

All of the securities issued under the private placement are subject to a four month resale restriction and will contain a legend which will detail the resale restriction. There is no minimum or maximum. Jadela may close the offering in several tranches. In connection with this private placement, Jadela will pay cash finder's fees equal to 8% of the funds raised to eligible finders who introduced subscribers to the private placement and issue one finder's warrant for every 10 units issued to eligible subscribers. Each finder's warrant will be issued to finders on the same terms as the warrants comprising the units. All sales must be concluded by September 9, 2011. Jadela received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange for the 2,000,000 unit offering. Jadela has applied to the TSX Venture Exchange for conditional acceptance of the new financing. The purpose of the offering is to acquire mineral rights, to pay for drilling expenses and to pay for the cost of capital infrastructure in South Texas.
