In connection with closing of the Offering, 50,319 Units were subscribed for by related parties of the Company (as such term is defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“)). The participation of the related parties in the Offering constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of MI 61-101. The Company is relying upon exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101 based on a determination that the fair market value of the Offering is not more than C$2,500,000 and the fact the Company is not listed on a specified market set out in section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101.

GreenLight’s mission is to expand known mineral resources and make new discoveries on the Penokean Volcanic Belt (the “Belt“) in Wisconsin, USA.

The Company’s strategy is to capitalize on its first mover advantage to consolidate, secure, and drill dominant land positions.

The Company’s key assets on the Belt are the Reef gold-copper and Bend copper-gold properties, each of which contains known historical resources with the potential for expansion. In addition, with the closing of the amalgamation with Can-America Minerals Inc. on July 25, 2022, the Company controls two additional prospective properties in Wisconsin – Lobo and Lobo East.
