The Offering will be used to fund the ongoing drill campaign at the Rainbow Deposit, Pine Bay, Manitoba.
Max Porterfield, President and CEO stated, “The Company is now fully funded and focused on the continued expansion and publication of a 43-101 resource estimate on the high-grade copper, gold, silver and zinc rich Rainbow Deposit at the Company’s Pine Bay Project in Manitoba. We are grateful for the support from the new and existing shareholders in this financing which allows us to continue to execute on our long-term objectives.’
The Offering consisted of (i) 453,446 hard dollar units (the “HD Units”) at a price of C$3.11 per HD Unit (the “HD Offering Price”) for gross proceeds of C$1,410,217; and (ii) 966,000 Manitoba flow-through units (the “FT Units”) at a price of C$5.00 per FT Unit (the “MB FT Offering Price”) for gross proceeds of $4,830,000.
Each HD Unit consists of one common share and one-half of one transferable common share purchase warrant (each whole such common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”).

Each Warrant shall be exercisable into one additional common share (a “Warrant Share”) for two (2) years from closing at an exercise price of C$4.75 per Warrant Share.
The Warrants will be subject to an acceleration clause whereby if at any time the volume-weighted average trading price of the common shares exceeds C$6.25 for a period of 15 consecutive trading days, the Company is entitled, as its option, to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by delivering written notice to the holders of the Warrants, to a date that is not less than 30 days after such notice is given.
The securities issued under the Offering are subject to restrictions on resale expiring on August 22, 2022. The Company paid finders a fee totaling $167,165.

All Qualifying Expenditures will be renounced in favour of the subscribers of the Flow-Through Shares effective December 31, 2022.
