With drills turning and a clear path to production, we look forward to continuing to build shareholder value by developing B.C.'s next high-grade gold mine."
Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Common Share (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $1.25 per Warrant Share for a period of 36 months from the closing of the Offering.
Provided that if, at any time prior to the expiry date of the Warrants, the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") is greater than $2.25 for 10 consecutive trading days, the Company may deliver a notice to the holders of Warrants accelerating the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following the date of such notice (the "Accelerated Exercise Period"). Any unexercised Warrants shall automatically expire at the end of the Accelerated Exercise Period.
