Each Share Subscription Receipt will be automatically exercised into one common share of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) upon completion of the previously announced transaction pursuant to which the Company will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Lapie Mining Inc., which holds certain mineral claims in the Yukon (the “Transaction”). Each Unit Subscription Receipt will be automatically exercised into one unit of the Company (each, a “Unit”) upon completion of the Transaction, whereby each Unit will consist of one Common Share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”), with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional Common Share (each, a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.60 until May 3, 2027.

The proceeds from the sale of the Subscription Receipts will be held in escrow pending completion of the Transaction. Following the Transaction, the funds are expected to be used for exploration and related expenditures on the Yukon properties acquired pursuant to the Transaction and working capital purposes.

The Subscription Receipts, including the Common Shares and the Warrants issuable upon automatic exercise of the Subscription Receipts, are and will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day under Canadian securities laws.

Certain insiders acquired an aggregate of 50,000 Share Subscription Receipts and 22,222 Unit Subscription Receipts, and as such the Private Placement is considered a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”).

The Company will file a material change report in respect of the Private Placement. However, the Company did not file a material change report 21 days prior to closing of the Private Placement as the participation of insiders of the Company in the Private Placement had not been confirmed at that time.

Further Information

Investors are cautioned that any information released or received with respect to the Transaction, including in this news release, may not be complete and should not be relied upon.

Completion of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE“) and shareholder approval.

The CSE has in no way passed upon the merits of the proposed Transaction and has neither approved nor disapproved the contents of this news release.

Trading in the Common Shares will remain halted pending the review of the proposed Transaction by the CSE.

This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities in the United States. The securities to be issued in connection with the Transaction, the Subscription Receipts, the Common Shares, the Warrants and the Warrant Shares have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons (as defined in Regulation S promulgated under the U.S. Securities Act) unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
