The Units and Flow-Through Shares are collectively referred to herein as the "Offering".
A finders' fee may be payable on a certain portion of the Offering. The finders' fee, where applicable, will be payable in cash equal to 6% of the proceeds raised from the Offering. In addition, the Finders' will receive compensation warrants ("Compensation Warrants") exercisable for non-flow-through common shares equal to 6% of the total number of certain Flow-Through Shares and Units sold.
