The Company will now issue: (i) 5,050,600 common shares of the Company that qualify as “flow-through shares” (within the meaning of subsection 66(15) of the Tax (as defined below) and section 359.1 of the Québec Tax Act (as defined below) (the “FT Shares”) at a price of $0.99 per FT Share, for gross proceeds of $5,000,094; and (ii) 5,454,600 common shares of the Company (the “HD Shares”) at a price of $0.55 per HD Share, for gross proceeds of $3,000,030, for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $8 million (collectively, the “Offering”).

The net proceeds from the issue of the HD Shares will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes. The Company will use an amount equal to the gross proceeds received by the Company from the sale of the FT Shares, pursuant to the provisions in the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Tax Act”), to incur (or be deemed to incur) eligible “Canadian exploration expenses” that qualify as “flow-through mining expenditures” (as both terms are defined in the Tax Act) (the “Qualifying Expenditures”) related to the Company’s projects in Québec, on or before December 31, 2025, and to renounce all the Qualifying Expenditures in favour of the subscribers of the FT Shares effective December 31, 2024.

If the Qualifying Expenditures are reduced by the Canada Revenue Agency, the Company will indemnify each FT Share subscriber for any additional taxes payable by such subscriber as a result of the Company’s failure to renounce the Qualifying Expenditures as agreed.
