Each Unit is comprised of one (1) common share in the capital of the Corporation (a “Common Share”) and one-half (1/2) of one common share purchase warrant of the Corporation (a “Warrant”).

The finders have also been granted broker warrants to purchase 7% of the number of Common Shares sold under the First Tranche as a result of such parties efforts, which resulted in Lithium Chile issuing an aggregate 189,854 broker warrants. Each broker warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of CDN$1.00 for a period of eighteen (18) months from the closing of the First Tranche.
The net proceeds of the First Tranche and the Private Placement will be used by the Corporation for general working capital and to fund continued development and exploration activities on its Lithium properties in Chile.
Pursuant to applicable securities laws, all securities issued pursuant to the First Tranche will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day following the date of issuance of such securities.
