Each FT Unit consists of one flow-through common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant a “Warrant”). Each Unit will consist of one common share and one Warrant. Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.05 per share before expiring on December 28, 2022.
