All securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period expiring on March 26, 2022. Completion of the Offering is subject to receipt of final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”). Finder’s fees were paid in accordance with the policies of the TSXV to Hampton Securities consisting of a cash commission equal to $400 and an issuance of 8,000 finder warrants (“Finder Warrants”) and to Leede Jones Gable consisting of a cash commission equal to $1,200 and an issuance of 24,000 Finder Warrants. Each Finder Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.07 per share until November 25, 2023.

The Insider Participation is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before closing the Offering as the details of the abovementioned Insider Participation were not settled until shortly prior to closing, and the Company wished to close the Offering on an expedited basis.
