(the "Company") (TSX-V: ROE) announces that, further to its March 8, 2017 news release with respect to the engagement of Haywood Securities Inc., as lead agent with Beacon Securities Limited and Canaccord Genuity Corp. (collectively, the "Agents") for a brokered private placement, the Company and the Agents have agreed to reduce the price per unit from C$0.30 to C$0.25 such that the offering is now up to 40,000,000 units at a price of C$0.25 per unit ("Units") for aggregate gross proceeds of up to C$10,000,000 (the "Offering").

Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant of the Company (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at an exercise price of C$0.50 from the date of issuance until July 31, 2019.
The Agents will receive a commission on the proceeds of the Offering.
The Offering is subject to certain conditions, including completion of formal documentation and receipt of regulatory approval, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV").
