In the private placement, five million common shares of Wildcat were issued at $0.05 per share.

In addition to the current cash payment and share subscription, San Gold must spend $5.1 million on exploration activities over a four-year period and make further cash payments to Wildcat totaling $750,000 and, subject to regulatory approval, subscribe for an aggregate of $750,000 of additional Wildcat shares via private placement over a three-year period.
