Each Warrant will entitle Rodinia to acquire one Share (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $0.13 per Warrant Share at any time for before the date that is three years from the date of issue, subject to an acceleration provision whereby in the event that at any time after the expiry of the statutory hold period, the Shares trade at $0.30 or higher on the TSXV, on a volume weighted average basis for a period of 30 consecutive days, Kombat Copper shall have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days after Kombat Copper issues a news release announcing that it has elected to exercise the acceleration right.
