The proceeds of the private placement will be used by the Company to fund drilling activities at its Warm Springs property and for general working capital purposes.

The securities issued under this private placement as well as the common shares issued on exercise of the warrants and finder's warrants will be subject to a four month hold period expiring January 7, 2012 under applicable Canadian securities legislation.

The securities sold by the Company have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration under the U.S. Securities Act or an exemption from such registration requirements. The common shares, warrants and the common shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants will be "restricted securities" within the meaning of Rule 144 under the U.S. Securities Act and will remain "restricted securities" notwithstanding any resale within or outside the United States unless the sale is completed pursuant to an effective registration statement under the U.S. Securities Act or in accordance with Rule 144.
