The report will help to optimize the extraction of the minerals already identified in the tailings.”

Close of the Company’s increased Quebec Flow-Through Private Placement
In conjunction with the PEA, management of the Company have planned to increase the scope of the exploration planned for 2022 and as a result, has increased and closed its previously announced non-brokered Quebec Flow Through Private Placement (the “Offering”). The Company raised gross proceeds of $2,356,922.88 by the issuance of 12,740,125 flow through common shares (the “Flow-Through Shares”) at a purchase price of $0.185 per Flow-Through Share. All securities issued in connection with the Offering are subjected to a restricted hold period of four months a day from the date of closing of the Offering, under applicable securities legislation.
In connection with the closing of the Offering, the Company paid an aggregate finders’ fees of $141,590.11 in cash and issued 765,351 share purchase warrants (the “Finder’s Warrants) to certain arms-length finders. Each Finder’s Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.185 and expires nine (9) months from the date of closing.
The Company will use the proceeds from the sale of the Flow-Through Shares to incur flow-through expenditures in the province of Quebec which qualify as 100% Canadian Exploration Expense (“CEE”) and will renounce said flow-through expenditures to the investors for the taxation year ending December 31, 2021.
