Each Unit will consist of one common share and one-half of a non-transferable common share purchase Warrant.

The Agent's compensation will include a cash commission of 7.5% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, which the Agent may elect to be paid in Units, a work fee of $7,500 plus GST and Agent's Warrants equal to 10% of the Units sold through the Offering.

The pre-feasibility study is currently focused on evaluating the viability of exploiting the 716,800 ounce measured and indicated and 63,500 ounce inferred gold mineral resource on the property. While several elements of the study are nearing completion management is also assessing the viability of alternative extraction processes to improve upon historical recoveries in light of the current price environment. In addition management believes there is significant opportunity to expand the resource both in the immediate area of the current resource and in other satellite deposits and targets on the 40,000 hectare property.
