Red Cloud Securities Inc. acted as a finder in connection with the Offering.
Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (each, a “Unit Share“) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“). Each FT Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company to be issued as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a “FT Share“) and one half of one Warrant. Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company (each, a “Warrant Share“) at a price of C$0.27 on or before November 17, 2023.
The net proceeds from the sale of Units will be used to fund the exploration of the Company’s projects in Canada and Australia and for general working capital purposes. The gross proceeds from the issuance of the FT Shares will be used for “Canadian Exploration Expenses” (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) (the “Qualifying Expenditures“), which will be renounced with an effective date no later than December 31, 2021 to the purchasers of the FT Shares in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue of the FT Shares. If the Qualifying Expenditures are reduced by the Canada Revenue Agency, the Company will indemnify each subscriber of FT Units for any additional taxes payable by such subscriber as a result of the Company’s failure to renounce the Qualifying Expenditures.
The Unit Shares, FT Shares, Warrant Shares and any common shares of the Company that are issuable from any finder’s warrants will be subject to a hold period ending on March 18, 2022. Under the Offering, the Company paid total finder’s fees of C$ 71,324 and issued to the finders 401,922 warrants of the Company (the “Finder’s Warrants“).
