    The total gross proceeds of the sale of up to 5,000,000 common shares of
the Company's stock to be realized by the Seller totaling $300,000, and sold

share purchase warrant exercisable for 24 months at $0.09 per full warrant.

warrants on a pro-rata basis out of the units subscribed for by Mr. Hazell.
    Aberdeen Gould Capital Markets Ltd. (the "Agent") will receive a
commission of 10% cash of the amount raised (which the Agent will reinvest in
the form of Units) and 10% in compensation units having the same
characteristics of the Units.
    The insider private placement is exempt from the valuation and minority
shareholder approval requirements of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI
61-101") by virtue of the exemptions contained in section 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a)
of MI 61-101 in that the fair market value of the consideration for the
securities of the Company to be issued to the insider does not exceed 25% of
its market capitalization.

purposes.
