The offering is expected to close on or about May 13, 2008. The Company has applied to list the common shares issuable upon exchange of the subscription receipts and upon exercise of the warrants on the Toronto Stock Exchange, and immediately prior to shareholder approval and listing, which is expected to be obtained on or before 12:01 a.m. (Vancouver time) on June 17, 2008, will apply for admission of such common shares for trading on the AIM of the London Stock Exchange.

The offering is subject to certain conditions, including but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including approvals of the Toronto Stock Exchange and the AIM. A copy of the final short form prospectus is available on www.sedar.com.
