Morgan Good, Chief Executive Officer and Director, commented: “Carlyle is delighted to close this initial tranche and be in a position of strength where the Company can begin creating momentum from both a corporate and technical perspective. Our team of sophisticated resource investors continues to grow which allows us to execute our objectives and remain focused on creating value for all shareholders.”
Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a “Share”) and one-half of one Share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”), with each full Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional Share (each, a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.30 per Warrant Share for a period of thirty-six months following issuance. The Warrants are subject to an acceleration provision (the “Acceleration Provision”) whereby in the event the Shares have a closing price on the CSE (as defined below) (or such other exchange on which the Shares may be traded at such time) of $0.50 or greater per Share for a period of ten (10) consecutive trading days at any time from the date of issuance, the Company may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by giving notice to the holders thereof (by disseminating a news release advising of the acceleration of the expiry date of the Warrants) and, in such case, the Warrants will expire on the thirtieth day after the date of such notice.
The aggregate proceeds of the First Tranche are anticipated to be used for exploration advancement of the Company’s Flagship Newton Project in British Columbia, and general working capital.
Fees of $32,739.98 and 298,266 finder’s warrants were paid in connection with the First Tranche in accordance with the policies of the CSE and applicable securities laws.

None of the securities sold in connection with the First Tranche will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and no such securities may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
