Each Warrant will be exercisable into one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.10, expiring two years from the date of issuance. The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to fund the continued activities at the Potosi nine located in Northern Mexico.

As part of the Offering a director of the Company (the “Insider”) together with other arm’s length shareholders of the Company have arranged for the sale of up to 839,000 Common Shares of their personal holdings at a price of $0.075 per Common Share through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Swap”). The proceeds from the Swap will be used to facilitate such Insider and shareholders subscription for their participation in the Offering.

The Company has entered into debt settlement agreements with various creditors who are not insiders of the Company to settle up to $130,000 of indebtedness by the issuance of up to two million Units of the Company (the “Units for Debt”).

The Company has also renegotiated three loans with arms-length lenders for a total amount US $313,750 and these loan have been extended by a period of twelve months beyond their original maturity dates. Subject to regulatory approval, the Company will issue 1,201,781 Common Shares (the “Bonus Shares”) and 1,884,000 common share purchase warrants (“Bonus Warrants”) as bonuses for the extension of the original maturity dates. Each Bonus Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share at a price of $0.07 per common share before April 20th, 2018. Finally, the Company has extended the maturity date for a loan in the amount of US $500,000 from May 5th, 2016 to August 7th, 2016.
