The Property is comprised of 26 claims covering an area of approximately 352 hectares located 20 kilometres east of the city of Val d'Or, in the eastern part of the Val d'Or gold mining camp, Quebec. The flow-through share proceeds will be used to fund these Canadian exploration expenses prior to December 31, 2011 at the latest. The Company intends to renounce the qualifying expenditures to subscribers for the year ended December 31, 2010. Non-flow-through funds raised pursuant to the Offerings will be used to fund expenses and initial consideration payable under the Lapaska property option agreement and for general working capital requirements.
