The Company has agreed to pay a cash commission of 6.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering and will issue to the underwriters compensation warrants (the “Compensation Warrants”) equal to 6.0% of the number of Shares sold under the Offering, other than in respect of a maximum of C$750,000 in aggregate proceeds of Shares issued to certain purchasers under a president’s list, in which case only a cash fee of 3.0% will be payable. The Compensation Warrants will be exercisable into common shares of the Company at a price per Compensation Warrant equal to the Offering Price for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering. Gross proceeds of the Offering will be used to expand the drill program at the Company’s 100% owned Jasperoide high-grade copper-gold skarn property in Peru and to undertake a maiden drill program at the Company’s Bellas Gate property in Jamaica and for general working capital and corporate purposes.
