Each Flow-Through Unit is comprised of one flow-through common share (each, a "Flow-Through Share") and one non-flow through share purchase warrant. Each full warrant is exercisable for one non-flow through common share (each, a "Share") at an exercise price of $0.10 for a term of 24 months after the closing ("Closing Date"). The non-flow through component of the Offering (the "Non-Flow Through Component") is comprised of up to 2,000,000 non-flow through units (the "Non-Flow Through Units") at a price of $0.075 per Non-Flow Through Unit for gross proceeds of up to $150,000.

If, on any 10 consecutive trading days occurring after four months and one day has elapsed following the Closing Date of the Offering, the closing sales price of the common shares (or the closing bid, if no sales were reported on a trading day) as quoted on the Canadian Securities Exchange is greater than CDN$0.15 per common share, the Company may provide notice in writing to the holders of the warrants by issuance of a press release that the expiry date of the warrants will be accelerated to the 30th day after the date on which the Company issues such press release.


In connection with the issue and sale of the Flow-Through Units and Non-Flow Through Units under the Offering, the Company may pay finder fees and finder warrants to eligible finders at the discretion of the board of directors.

The Company will renounce CEE effective on or before December 31, 2023.
