Under the terms of the Loan Agreement, the Issuer intends to issue to or as directed by the Lender 608,695 warrants (the “Warrants”), which qualify as a Loan Bonus pursuant to section 2 of Policy 5.1. Each Warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for and purchase one common share (a “Common Share”) in the capital of the Issuer at a purchase price of C$0.115 per Common Share for a period of one year following the date of issuance.
