Gross proceeds of $300,000 were raised through the sale of 5,000,000 units at a price of $0.06 per unit (each a “Unit”). Each Unit comprised one common share and one share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase a further common share at a price of $0.20 per share until May 10, 2027. The warrants are subject to accelerated exercise provisions such that if the closing price of the Company’s common shares exceeds $0.20 per share for a period of 20 consecutive trading days, the Company may give notice of the acceleration of the warrants’ term to a period of 30 days following such notice.

Finder’s fees of $4,746.00 and 79,100 finder’s warrants, issuable on the same terms as the unit warrants, were paid in connection with the initial tranche of the Placement.

All securities issued in the first tranche are subject to a hold period in Canada expiring on September 11, 2024. Additional restrictions may apply pursuant to Rule 144 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, to U.S. investors.

Proceeds of the Placement will be used to advance the Company's Rama-Senikura Copper/Gold Prospect in Fiji and general working capital. The Placement is subject to regulatory approval, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange

Insiders participated in the Placement acquiring an aggregate of 1,673,000 units on the same basis as other subscribers. The participation in the Placement by insiders of the Company constitutes a "related party transaction" as such term is defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements under MI 61-101. The Company relied on Section 5.5(a) of MI 61-101 for an exemption from the formal valuation requirement and Section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 for an exemption from the minority shareholder approval requirement of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the Placement in so far as the Placement involved interested parties did not exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.

The Company will provide additional updates on the remaining tranches of the Placement in due course. The Company will extend the time for completion of the remaining tranches of the Placement, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, for an additional 30 days.
