The Company issued 4,594,111 common shares at a price of $0.135 per share.

The proceeds from the private placement will be used for the evaluation of potential acquisition transactions, including land and legal due diligence reviews, and for general working capital.

Their participation is considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any securities issued to nor the consideration paid by such persons exceeded $2,500,000. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the private placement as the details of the private placement and the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
