The aggregate gross proceeds raised from the Offering will be used, pursuant to the provisions in the Tax Act to incur, directly or indirectly, expenses (“Qualifying Expenditures”) related to the Company’s projects in British Columbia, on or before December 31, 2024, that are eligible “Canadian exploration expenses” (as defined in the Tax Act), which will qualify as “flow-through critical mineral mining expenditures” (as defined in the Tax Act) and “BC flow-through mining expenditures” as defined in the Income Tax Act (BC). The Company will renounce all the Qualifying Expenditures in favour of the applicable subscribers of the Offered Units effective December 31, 2023.
In connection with the Offering, commissions on the sale of the Offered Units were paid to eligible finders (the “Finders”) in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and applicable securities law. The Company paid an aggregate of C$9,059.45 in cash commissions and issued 45,000 finder warrants (the “Finder Warrants”) to the Finders.
