The proceeds will be used to fund the completion of an exploration target resource model completed by BAW Mining Inc. which will provide an estimated range of tonnage and grade by incorporating historical and current drilling data for W2 and to accelerate other exploration activities.

Each unit consists of one common share in the Capital of the Company to be issued as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant “) (an” FT Unit”). Each Warrant shall be exercisable into one non-flow-through common share of the Company at a price of $0.05 per share at any time on or before the exercise date, which is 24 months after the closing date of the financing. The Warrant has an accelerator clause providing the Company the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants if the closing price of the Company’s common shares is at a price equal to or greater than $0.10 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days.

Gross proceeds of the FT Offering will incur eligible Canadian exploration expenses that are “flow-through critical mineral mining expenditures” and will qualify as flow-through mining expenditure as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada) related to the W2 Copper Nickel PGE Project, on or before Dec. 31, 2025. All qualifying expenditures will be renounced in favour of the subscribers effective Dec. 31, 2024.
