Each NFT Unit consists of one non flow-through common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "NFT Warrant").

Each FT Unit consists of one flow-through common share in the capital of the Company (a "FT Share") and one-half of one share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "FT Warrant"). Each FT Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional non-flow-through common share in the capital of the Company (a "FT Warrant Share") at a price of $0.40 per FT Warrant Share until July 12, 2013. The Company will renounce, in accordance with the terms of the subscription agreement for the FT Units, an amount equal to the gross proceeds derived from the sale of the FT Units to purchasers in accordance with the provisions of the Income Tax Act (Canada). All securities issued in the closing will be subject to a hold period which expires November 13, 2012.

In connection with the closing, the Company paid an aggregate cash commission of $116,147.50 to certain arm's-length finders (equal to 7% of the proceeds raised by such finders) and issued 429,800 warrants (the "Finder's Warrants") to certain arm's-length finders (equal to 7% of the NFT Units and/or FT Units sold by such finders).
