Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one half of a common share purchase warrant ("Warrant").

The proceeds received from the sale of the Units will be used to fund work programs on the Company's properties, fund the Company's Pro-Long Campaign and for general working capital, including the payment of outstanding accounts payable.
The Company estimates that up to approximately 6,000,000 Units, representing gross proceeds of up to approximately $300,000 may be issued to insiders of the Company.
All securities issued will be subject to a four (4) month hold period from the date of closing. The Offering is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
At closing of the Offering finder fees of 6% of the proceeds may be payable in cash, and 8% finder warrants which are exercisable at the price of $0.10 per share in year one and $0.20 per share in the second year, expiring 24 months from the date of closing of the Offering.
The Company would also like to announce that they have reached agreements with two additional creditors to settle indebtedness of the Company in the aggregate amount of $80,000 through the issuance of 1,600,000 common shares of the Company at the deemed price of $0.05 per share.
