Pursuant to the Exercise Agreement, the Company and the Optionors have agreed that the Option may be exercised and that the Company will exercise the Option in full by: (i) paying the Optionors a cash payment of $35,000 (the “Cash Payment”); and (ii) issuing to the Optionors 185,185 common shares in the capital of the Company (the “Shares”) at deemed price of $0.27 per Share.
In addition, the Company has agreed to enter into a royalty agreement with the Optionors on the Completion Date pursuant to which the Company will grant: (i) a 2.0% net smelter return royalty (the “Full Royalty”) to the Optionors with respect to production of all precious metals from the mineral claims comprising the Property, other than from certain excluded claims (the “Excluded Claims”); and (ii) a 1.0% net smelter return royalty to the Optionors with respect to production of all precious metals from the Excluded Claims.

About the Fecteau Gold Project
- 30km east of Osisko Mining’s Windfall Lake Project and Bonterra Resources’ Gladiator Project (Figure 1).
- Five new exploration targets generated from till sampling, some of which have been followed up with an IP survey.
- Nine mineral showings including:
- Lac Fecteau Est: 2.42g/t Au over 2.65m, 1.82 g/t Au over 4.9m in drill core
- Buteux-Marceau: up to 4.11 g/t Au in grab samples
- Lac Pistolet: up to 1.08 g/t Au and 1.91% Cu in grab samples
- Desgagné: up to 1.00 g/t Au in a trench over massive sulphide
- Lac Fecteau Nord: 1.71 g/t Au over 1.5m in drill core
- Lac Fecteau Porphyry: up to 7.09 g/t Au in grab samples
The Fecteau Gold Property is known to host two types of mineralization: VMS (Cu-Zn-Au) and mesothermal gold. Both styles of mineralization will be targeted during this program. VMS targets are represented in the field by numerous gossans of semi-massive to massive sulphides located along and near an east-west trending rhyolite-dacite contact observed over 10 km of strike. Past drilling near surface intersected anomalous copper-zinc intervals associated with anomalous gold.
Mesothermal gold bearing quartz veins are observed at both ends of the property (western and eastern portions) where the volcanic sequence is folded. East-west striking meter-scale shear veins developed parallel to the axial plan of the folds.
