Each Unit consisted of a common share in the capital of the Company (each, a "Common Share") and included one common share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"), with each Warrant exercisable at a price of CDN$0.15 to purchase one Common Share for a period of twenty four (24) months from the date of issuance, such that the Warrants will expire on July 31, 2022.
