- 4,032,259 common shares of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) at a price of C$3.10 per Common Share; and
- 3,424,658 common shares of the Company to be issued as “flow-through shares” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a “FT Share”, and together with the Common Shares, the “Offered Securities”) at a price of C$3.65 per FT Share.
