Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each warrant will entitle its holder to purchase one additional common share in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of $0.95 per common share for a period of two years from the date of issue (the “Expiration Date”), provided that, if after four months from the date of issue, the closing price of the common shares of the Company on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) is equal to or greater than $1.90 for a period of 10 consecutive trading days at any time prior to the expiry time, the Company shall have the right to accelerate the expiry time of the Warrants by giving notice to the holders of Warrants of subscription by press release or other form of notice permitted by the certificate representing the Warrants that the Warrants will expire at 4:30 a.m. (Vancouver time) on a date not less than 15 days from from the date the notice is given.
The offering will close upon completion of the documentation and is conditional upon receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including stock exchange approval. The proceeds of the offering will be used to fund exploration and engineering expenses and for general corporate purposes.
The Offering will be offered to accredited investors in all provinces of Canada in accordance with applicable securities laws. In connection with the Offer, the Company may pay finder’s fees as permitted by Exchange policies. All securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a four month hold period.
The securities to be offered under the Offer have not been and will not be registered under the US Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “US Securities Act”) or any securities law of the United States, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, persons of the United States absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the United States securities law and applicable United States securities laws. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities in the United States, and there will be no sale of such securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be illegal.
The Company expects insiders to subscribe for Units. Issuance of units to insiders is considered a related party transaction subject to National Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. The Company intends to rely on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements set out in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of NI 61-101 on the basis that participation in the Offer by insiders will not exceed 25% of the fair market value of the company’s market capitalization. A material change report in connection with the Offering will be filed less than 21 days prior to the closing of the Offering. This shorter period is reasonable and necessary in the circumstances since the Company wishes to complete the Offer in a timely manner.
