    Certain finders assisted the Corporation by introducing potential
subscribers for the Offering and each finder received fees equal to a maximum
of 8% of the purchase price of the Units sold to subscribers for the Offering
introduced by such finder as well as warrants ("Finder's Warrants") equal to a
maximum of 8% of the number of Units sold to subscribers for the Offering
introduced by such finder. Each Finder's Warrant entitles the holder thereof
to purchase one regular Class A common share of the Corporation at a price of
$0.13 for a period of 12 months from the date of issuance.
    The closing of the Offering is subject to the final approval of the TSX
Venture Exchange. A third closing is expected to take place by mid-September,
