In conjunction with the private placement, Cartier paid finder’s fees equivalent to 8% of the gross proceeds of the sale of flow-through shares and units as well as a number of non-transferable warrants equal to 8% of the aggregate number of flow-through shares and units issued. These warrants are exercisable for a period of two (2) years from the closing date at a price of $0.38 per share.

The proceeds of the private placement, combined with existing working capital, will be used by Cartier to conduct exploration programs during the next 12 months on its properties, mainly on its Dollier, Xstrata Option and Cadillac Extension properties, and for general working capital.
