The units consist of one common share and one-half of one two-year share purchase warrant, where each full warrant may be exercised to acquire an additional common share at a price of $0.75 in year one and at a price of $1.00 in year two. The Company paid finder's fees of $144,375. All securities issued in connection with this private placement are subject to a 4-month hold period;

b) issued 8,488,339 common shares to creditors at a price of $0.50 in connection with the settlement of debts of $4,244,169. The shares issued are subject to a 4-month hold period and are additionally subject to a value escrow agreement which allows for their release in stages over three years;

c) converted outstanding promissory notes aggregating $350,000, plus accrued interest and fees, into 928,689 units of the Company at a deemed price of $0.40 per unit. The units consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant may be exercised to acquire an additional common share at a price of $0.50 until January 17, 2006. The shares and warrants are not subject to any hold periods; and

d) issued a finder's fee of 240,000 common shares to a consulting geologist in relation to the staking of a uranium property. These shares are subject to a 4-month hold period.

As a result of these transactions, the Company now has a total of approximately 16,700,000 common shares issued and outstanding. Magnum has working capital of approximately $2,300,000 and is well positioned to proceed with its business plan.
