Raj Chowdhry, Chief Executive Officer
Multilateral Instrument 61-101
Under the Private Placement, the following insiders of the Company purchased common shares: Raj Chowdhry, President, CEO and a director of the Company, purchased 137,500 Flow-Through Shares under the Private Placement; Henry Park, a director of the Company, purchased 87,000 Non-Flow-Through Shares through a company controlled by Mr. Park; and Jason Sutherland, a director of the Company, purchased 20,000 Flow-Through Shares under the Private Placement. Their participation is considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the securities to be distributed in the Private Placement nor the consideration to be received for those securities, in so far as the Private Placement involves the insiders, exceeds $2,500,000. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Private Placement as the details of the Private Placement and the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
