Together with the previously-announced July 26, 2023 closing of Tranche 1, the Company has issued 2,000,000 units in aggregate at a price of $0.06 per unit. Each unit consists of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 for a period of three years from closing, subject to receipt of final applicable regulatory approvals including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The shares and Warrants issued in the Placement are subject to a four-month hold period.

Gordon Ellis, President and CEO of the Company, acquired 200,000 Units in Tranche 1 of the Placement. His participation is considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI61-101 as neither the fair market value of the Units issued to Mr. Ellis, or the consideration paid, exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
