This flow through offering has been adjusted according to the share consolidation announced by the Company on July 29, 2019 and which became effective on August 15, 2019.

As previously announced, insiders may participate in the Offering.
The aggregate gross proceeds from the sale of the Offering will be used to advance the developments of the Company’s Ashram REE Deposit in Quebec.
Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company issued on a “flow-through” basis pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a “Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”), with each Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one Share (on a non-flow-through basis) at an adjusted price of $0.75 per Share for a period of one year following the closing of the Offering (the “Closing”).
Finders’ fees may be payable in connection with the Offering in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”).
All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day after Closing. Completion of the Offering is subject to the approval of the Exchange.
