The aggregate gross proceeds raised from the sale of the FT Units under the Offering will be used by the Company to incur expenditures associated with the exploration and advancement of the Company's Haig Inlet Iron Project, which will constitute "Canadian exploration expenses" (as defined in the Act) and which will be eligible for renunciation to purchasers for the 2012 taxation year.
With respect to certain subscribers, the Agents were paid a cash commission equal to 5% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, and with respect to the remainder of the subscribers, the Agents were paid a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering. The Agents were also issued an aggregate of 570,000 non-transferable warrants of the Company (each, a "Compensation Option"). Each Compensation Option entitles the holder thereof to acquire one unit (each, "Compensation Unit") at a price of $0.20 until June 4, 2014. Each Compensation Unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Compensation Warrant"). Each Compensation Warrant has the same terms as the Warrants.
The securities issued under the Offering are subject to a hold period expiring on April 5, 2013.
