These acquisitions are expected to close shortly on receipt of final TSX Venture approval, and a further news release will be issued at that time. In connection with the closing of the initial tranche of the Private Placement, the Company paid finder’s fees totaling $84,860. The Company also issued to certain finders non-transferable warrants to acquire 848,600 common shares from treasury at a price of $0.15 per warrant, exercisable at any time within the 36-month period following the closing date.
