Each Subscription Receipt represents the right to receive on conversion, automatically and for no further consideration at the Conversion Date (as defined below), one (1) flow-through share (as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)) in the capital of the Company (a "FT Common Share") and one-half of one (0.5) non flow-through, non-transferable share purchase warrant (a "Warrant").

Subscription proceeds will be held in escrow by Computershare Trust Company of Canada (the "Escrow Receipt Agent") until the Conversion Date.

("Rapier") pursuant to a plan of arrangement between the Company and Rapier or (ii) December 21, 2012 (whichever is first to occur being the "Conversion Date"), each Subscription Receipt shall be released from escrow to the subscribers and shall automatically convert to FT Common Shares and Warrants and the subscription proceeds shall be released from escrow to the Company.
In connection with the Private Placement, the Corporation shall pay Marquest Asset Management Inc. a finder's fee comprised of (i) a cash fee equal to seven percent (7%) of the gross subscription proceeds, and (ii) broker warrants ("Broker Warrants") entitling Marquest, upon exercise of the Broker Warrants, to purchase, in aggregate, Common Shares equal to seven percent (7.0%) of the number of FT Common Shares sold pursuant to the Private Placement. Such Broker Warrants shall be exercisable at a price of $0.15 per Common Share until the Warrant Expiry Date.
In compliance with Canadian securities laws and the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange, (i) the FT Common Shares, the Warrants and the Broker Warrants will be subject to a hold period of four (4) months following the Conversion Date, and (ii) the Common Shares underlying the Broker Warrants will be subject to a four (4) month hold period following their issuance upon exercise of the Broker Warrants.
The Private Placement and any modifications thereto are subject to compliance with applicable securities laws and to receipt of the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The subscription proceeds from the Private Placement shall be used to fund exploration expenditures on the Company's Canadian mineral projects (primarily the Company's Radio Hill property) and will qualify as Canadian exploration expenses (as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)).
