its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Offering")
pursuant to which it issued 5,700,000 units at a price of $0.05 per unit for

excess of $0.15 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days at any time after
the closing, the Company may, at its option, accelerate the expiry date of the
Warrants by giving notice to the holders thereof and in such case the Warrants
will expire at 4:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the date which is the earlier of:
(i) the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given by the Company;
and (ii) the date which is 24 months after the closing. The securities issued
in connection with the Offering are subject to a four-month hold period.
    In connection with the Offering the Company paid a commission to a
registered dealer in the amount of $5,000. It is anticipated that the closing
of the remainder of the Offering will take place on or before May 8, 2009.
