Each FT Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company that will qualify as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Tax Act”) (a “FT Common Share”) and one common share purchase warrant of the Company (a “Warrant”).

Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common (a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price equal to $0.75 at any time up to 36 months from closing of the Offering.
The gross proceeds from the sale of FT Units (other than the minimal amount allocable to the Warrants) will be used for exploration expenses on the Company’s mining projects as permitted under the Tax Act to qualify as Canadian Exploration Expenses (“CEE”) as defined in the Tax Act. The FT Common Shares, Common Shares and the Warrant Shares to be issued under the Offering have a hold period of four months and one day closing of the Offering.
In a second-step transaction, and part and parcel of the completion of the Offering, Eric Sprott, through 2176423 Ontario Ltd., a corporation that is beneficially owned by him, acquired 2,000,000 Units for approximate consideration of $1,000,000. Subsequent to the closing of the offering, Mr. Sprott beneficially owns or controls 2,000,000 Common Shares of the Company and 2,000,000 Warrants, representing approximately 9.2% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company on a non-diluted basis and approximately 16.9% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company on a partially diluted basis, assuming exercise of the Warrants forming part of the Units acquired. Prior to the offering, Mr. Sprott did not beneficially own or control any securities of the Company.
The Units were acquired by Mr. Sprott for investment purposes. Mr. Sprott has a long-term view of the investment and may acquire additional securities of Great Atlantic Resources, including on the open market or through private acquisitions, or sell securities of the company, including on the open market or through private dispositions in the future, depending on market conditions, reformulation of plans and/or other factors that Mr. Sprott considers relevant from time to time.
