(the "Agent") to act as agent for and on behalf of the Company, on a "best efforts" agency basis, without underwriter liability, in connection with a proposed private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $4 million (the "Offering"). The Offering consists of the sale of flow-through shares ("Flow-Through Shares") at a price of $0.38 per Flow-Through Share and/or units ("Units") to be priced at $0.30 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share exercisable for a period of 18 months following the closing date at a price of $0.38 per share for the first 12 month of the term and $0.45 per share for the remainder of the term.

The Company will grant the Agents an option (the "Agent's Option"), which will allow the Agent to sell an additional $3 million Flow-Through Shares and/or Units, pursuant to the Offering. The Agents' Option shall be exercisable, in whole or in part, on or prior to the closing date.

The Company intends to use the gross proceeds of the Flow-Through Shares for Canadian mineral exploration purposes and the net proceeds of the Units for mineral exploration and working capital.

The securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a 4 month and one day statutory hold period. In connection with the Offering, the Agent will receive a cash commission and broker warrants. The broker warrants will be exercisable into units with the same terms as the Units for a period of 18 months following the closing date.

The offering is scheduled to close on or about February 8, 2011 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and the securities regulatory authorities.
