Under the terms of the offering, NaiKun has agreed to sell up to 2,142,857 Units (assuming the offering is comprised entirely of Units), on a private placement basis, at a price of $1.40 per Unit and $1.70 per Flow-Through Share. In addition, Northern will have an over-allotment option to increase the offering by $500,000 of Units or Flow-Through Shares, subject to a maximum issuance of $2,000,000 of Flow-Through Shares.

Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one-half common share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share at a price of $1.80 per common share for a period from the closing date of the Offering until May 30, 2008. It is anticipated that this offering will close on or about March 23, 2007.

Northern will receive a commission of 8 per cent of the gross proceeds of the Offering and NaiKun will issue to the Northern, at Closing, Unit Broker Warrants equal to 8 percent of the Units sold pursuant to the Offering and Flow-Through Share Broker Warrants equal to 8 per cent of the Flow-Through Shares sold pursuant to the Offering, each flow-through share broker warrant being exercisable into one common share of company at the Flow-Through Share issue price.
