The Company plans to use the proceeds of the Private Placement for exploration of its properties and for general and corporate purposes.
The Private Placement is subject to a statutory 4-month hold from the date of issuance. The Private Placement remains subject to final approval of the TSXV and applicable securities regulatory authorities. No fees were paid on this financing.
