The Company issued 6,268,750 Units at a price of $0.16 per Unit, with each Unit consisting of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share at a price of $0.25 per share for up to 24 months following the closing date. The Company has the right to accelerate the expiry date of the warrants if the closing price of the Company's common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange exceeds $0.50 for 20 consecutive days on which the Company's shares trade. Net proceeds from the offering will be used for exploration, development and permitting expenditures on the Company's Atlanta gold property located in Idaho, U.S.A. and for working capital purposes.

The Company anticipates completing the balance of the offering by the end of September.

The Company paid cash finder's fees totaling $64,240 and issued 401,500 compensation options to registrants in connection with the closing of the second tranche. Each compensation option entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.25 per share for one year.
