Each FT Unit and Charity FT Unit consisted of one common share of the Company issued as a “flow-through share” under the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a “FT Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant, Each whole warrant (a “Warrant”) entitles the holder to purchase one (non-flow-through) common share of the Company (each, a “Warrant Share”) at a price of C$0.90 until July 31, 2023.
