Certain insiders of the Company have subscribed for FT Shares and NFT Units pursuant to the private placements. The issuance of the FT Shares and NFT Units to the insiders pursuant to the private placements (the "Insider Participation") will be considered to be a related party transaction within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101").

Douglas Mason, the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company ("Mason"), announces that he has acquired ownership of 2,000,000 NFT Units of the Company at a price of $0.05 per NFT Unit, for total consideration of $100,000, pursuant to the private placement transaction. The NFT Units are comprised of 2,000,000 non-flow through common shares (the "Shares") in the capital of the Company and non-flow through share purchase warrants entitling Mason to purchase an additional 2,000,000 common shares until November 28, 2019 at a price of $0.10 per common share.

Mason also holds 4,600,000 common share purchase warrants and 1,259,000 stock options to purchase common shares of the Company, that, if exercised in full, would result in Mason holding 11,873,622 common shares of the Company, or approximately 13.04% of the Company's then issued and outstanding common shares, assuming no other shares of the Company are issued. Mason acquired ownership of the NFT Units for investment purposes and may from time to time, increase or decrease his ownership position in the future in the market or privately as circumstances warrant.
