The Company has agreed to grant the Agent an option (the " Over-Allotment Option ") to sell up to an additional 1,918,604 Units at the Offering Price, exercisable in whole or in part, at any time up to 48 hours prior to the closing of the Offering to cover over-allotments, if any. If the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in full, approximately an additional C$825,000 in gross proceeds will be raised pursuant to the Offering and the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering will be approximately C$6,325,000 .
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to advance exploration on the Company's properties in Guyana , as well as for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Units will be offered for sale by way of private placement pursuant to applicable exemptions from the prospectus requirements in all of the Provinces of Canada . The Agent will also be entitled to offer the Units for sale in the United States pursuant to available exemptions from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933 , as amended, and in those other jurisdictions outside of Canada and the United States provided it is understood that no prospectus filing or comparable obligation arises in such other jurisdiction.
The Offering is scheduled to close on or about July 5, 2022 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
