The Partial Exchange Receipts constitute a portion of the subscription receipts issued and sold under the non-brokered private placement of subscription receipts of the Company that closed on April 13, 2022 (the “Private Placement”). The Private Placement consisted of the issuance of 3,910,606 conventional unit subscription receipts (“Conventional Unit Subscription Receipts”), and 2,150,000 flow-through unit subscription receipts (“Flow-Through Unit Subscription Receipts” and together with the Conventional Unit Subscription Receipts, the “Subscription Receipts”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,000,000 at the Issue Price. Upon closing of the Private Placement, the gross proceeds of $1,000,000 (the “Escrow Proceeds”), was placed into escrow pending the satisfaction and/or waiver of the Escrow Release Conditions. Each Conventional Unit comprised one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant (each, a “Underlying Warrant”), with each Underlying Warrant exercisable for the purchase of one Common Share at a price of $0.22 per Common Share for a period of five years. Each Flow-Through Unit comprised one Common Share, which qualifies as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a “Flow-Through Share”) and one Underlying Warrant.

The Partial Exchange was approved by the requisite majority of the holders of the Subscription Receipts. The Company intends to use the funds received for “Canadian exploration expenses” that are “flow-through mining expenditures” (as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)), fees associated with the Company’s planned up-listing to the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”), and general corporate purposes. Following the completion of the Partial Exchange, an aggregate of $500,250 remains in escrow. All terms and conditions, including the Issue Price, of all outstanding Subscription Receipts remain unchanged.

In connection with the Partial Exchange, two “related parties”, for the purposes of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”), were issued an aggregate of 900,000 Common Shares and 900,000 Underlying Warrants. The issuance of these securities to such related parties constitutes a “related party transaction” for the purposes of MI 61-101. The Company is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements available under MI 61-101. The Partial Exchange is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 (pursuant to subsection 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(b)) as the Company is not listed on the markets specified in MI 61-101 and neither the fair market value of the securities distributed to, nor the consideration received from interested parties exceeded $2,500,000.
