Each Finder's Warrant will be exercisable for one Share at a price of C$0.30 per Share for a period of 24 months from the closing date.
There is no minimum number of Units or minimum aggregate proceeds required to close the Offering and the Company may, at its discretion, elect to close the Offering in one or more tranches.
