Each Unit will be priced at $0.08 and will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (a "Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant").

The FT Shares will qualify as "flow-through shares" as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada).
The gross proceeds from the sale of the FT Units will be used for exploration expenditures at the Bakar Property located in northwestern Vancouver Island. The gross proceeds from the sale of the Units will be used for working capital purposes.
The Offering is expected to close on or about November 19, 2021, and is subject to certain closing conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the conditional acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
