Any proceeds received as a result of the Incentive Program will be used for working capital and exploration on properties.

The Incentive Program will be available to holders of Original Warrants from September 10, 2021 and terminate October 11, 2021 (the “Expiry Date”).
In order to encourage the early exercise of the Original Warrants, under the Incentive Program, if the Original Warrants are exercised Warrant holder will receive one (1) additional warrant (an “Incentive Warrant”) in consideration of the early exercise of each Warrant. Each Incentive Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one (1) common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 per share for a period of one (1) year from the date of issuance. The Incentive Warrants and any common shares issued upon the exercise of the Incentive Warrants will be subject to a hold period expiring four months plus one day after the date of distribution of the Incentive Warrants.
The Incentive Program will begin on September 10, 2021 and terminate on October 11, 2021.
In the event the Original Warrant holder determines not to participate in the Incentive Program, then following the expiry of the Incentive Period, the Placement Warrant holder may exercise the Placement Warrants on their original terms or allow them to expire unexercised.
No Directors or Officers of the Company will participate in the Incentive Program. The Company is not aware of any potential new insider position that would be created upon the exercise of the Placement Warrants nor Incentive Warrants.
If a holder of Original Warrants does not exercise their Original Warrants by the Expiry Date, the Original Warrants will continue to be exercisable for common shares on their original terms.
