Under the Second Tranche, the Company has issued 15,817,625 common shares of the Company ("Shares") at a price of $0.08 for gross proceeds of $1,265,410. In total, 34,287,000Shares were issued under the Offering for gross proceeds of $2,742,960.

Insiders of the Company subscribed for 3,375,000 common shares at the Offering Price for gross proceeds of C$270,000. Participation by insiders in the Offering constitutes a related party transaction as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of 61-101 as the fair market value of securities issued to such insiders does not exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report 21 days prior to the closing of the Offering as the details of the Offering and the participation of insiders of the Company had not been confirmed at that time.
