St-Georges Platinum and Base Metals Ltd.

The A Units will consist of 5,000 common shares at a price of $0.20 per share and 5,000 common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the capital stock of the Corporation at an exercise price of $0.50 per share at any time on or before the date that is 36 months from the date of issuance of the warrant.

The B Units will consist of 4,000 flow-through common shares at a price of $0.25 per share and 4,000 common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of the capital stock of the Corporation at an exercise price of $0.50 per Common Share at any time on or before the date that is 12 months from the date of issuance of the warrant, and thereafter at an exercise price of $0.55 per share at any time on or before the date that is 24 months from the date of issuance of the warrant, and thereafter at an exercise price of $0.60 per share, at any time on or before the date that is 36 months from the date of issuance of the warrant.

Concurrently the Corporation will conduct a non-brokered private placement financing consisting of up to 2,000 common share units (the " C Units") at a purchase price of $1,000 per C Unit to raise total gross proceeds of up to $2,000,000, the "Non Brokered Private Placement".

The C Units will consist of 5,000 common shares at a price of $0.20 per share and 5,000 common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the capital stock of the Corporation at an exercise price of $0.50 per share at any time on or before the date that is 36 months from the date of issuance of the warrant.

Proceeds of the Units will be used for general working capital purposes and to incur general exploration expenses. The expenses will constitute Canadian exploration expenses and flow-through mining expenditures (as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)), which can be renounced to purchasers for the 2010 taxation year.

Certain directors, officers and insiders of the Corporation may participate in the Brokered Private Placement and Non-Brokered Private Placement. The securities issued will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day.

Both private placements will be subject to approval by the Canadian National Stock Exchange, the "CNSX".
