A cash finder's fee equal to 8% of the gross proceeds of the Offering will be paid to PowerOne Capital Markets Limited ("PowerOne") in connection with the Offering. In addition, the Company will issue PowerOne that number of finder's warrants which is equal to 10% of the total number of units sold under the private placement (the "Finder's Warrants"). Each Finder's Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one NFT Unit at a price of $0.27 for a period of two years from the closing date.

All of the securities are subject to a hold period expiring April 22, 2011. The proceeds from the private placement will be used for exploration work on the Company's mineral properties and for general working capital.
