"Units") at a price of $0.25 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of up to
$350,000. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share in the capital of
the Company and one common share purchase warrant. Each common share purchase
warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share at a price

        date of the closing of the private placement;

    -   $0.35 at any time after 24 months but before 36 months following the
