Each unit consists of one common share of the Company's capital stock and one half of a share purchase warrant.

Part of the funds raised under this private placement are to be used to finance two diamond drill holes to trace the breccia zone discovered in diamond drill hole KN 11-05 along the Djambaye 2 gold zone on the Kenieba concession in western Mali, West Africa. This hole intersected 1.05 m of 808.85 g/t gold. The remaining funds will be used for option payments, administration and a follow-up work program on the Manankoto gold concession.
