Red Cloud Securities Inc. (the "Agent") acted as sole agent and bookrunner under the Offering. In connection with the Offering, the Company paid the Agent an aggregate cash commission of approximately C$276,363, equal to five per cent (5.0%) of the gross proceeds raised under the Offering (the "Broker Commission") (except for certain of those purchasers listed on the president's list (the "President's List"), to which no commission was paid). The Company also issued to the Agent 1,152,903 broker warrants (the "Broker Warrants" and, together with the Broker Commission, the "Commission"), equal to five percent (5.0%) percent of the Offered Units sold pursuant to the Offering (except for certain of those Offered Units sold to purchasers on the President's List).

In addition to the Commission, pursuant to the Offering and in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"), the Company (i) paid Canaccord Genuity Corp., Haywood Securities Inc., and Ocean Wall Limited (the "Finders") a cash fee totaling $140,208.49, and (ii) issued the Finders an aggregate of 621,111 common share purchase warrants (the "Finders' Warrants").

If the Qualifying Expenditures are reduced by the Canada Revenue Agency, the Company will indemnify each subscriber of FT Units and Charity FT Units for any additional taxes payable by such subscriber as a result of the Company's failure to renounce the Qualifying Expenditures.
