If at any time after March 8, 2022, the common shares of the Company trade at $0.50 per common share or higher (on a volume weighted adjusted basis) for a period of 10 consecutive days, the Company will have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days after the Company issues a news release announcing that it has elected to exercise this acceleration right.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to advance its flagship Kobada Gold Project (the “Project” or “Kobada”) in Southern Mali and to continue to pursue corporate options.
In connection with the closing of the Offering, the Company has paid aggregate finder’s fees of $272,000 in cash and 1,021,999 finder’s warrants (collectively, the “Finder’s Warrants”) to certain finders.
