The gross total proceeds in this first tranche closing will be $5,228,750.

The shares issued under this financing will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the date of closing of the offering. Each whole FT Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one flow-through common share at an exercise price of $0.50 until December 31, 2010 and thereafter at an exercise price of $0.55 until August 31, 2011. Each whole NFT Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share at an exercise price of $0.45 until December 31, 2010 and thereafter at an exercise price of $0.50 until August 31, 2011.

The Company will pay finder's fees of $144,555 and issue 399,279 finder's warrants on a portion of the funds raised.
