(b)

Upon the due exercise of Warrants pursuant to Section 3.1 and subject to Section 3.4, the Corporation or its nominee shall, as soon as practicable and in any event within five (5) Business Days after the Exercise Date, cause to be mailed to the person or persons in whose name or names the Warrant is registered or, if so specified in writing by the holder, cause to be delivered to such person or persons at the Corporation where the Warrant Certificate was surrendered, a certificate or certificates for the appropriate number of Common Shares issued upon exercise of the Warrants evidenced by the Warrant Certificate.

 

3.4

Partial Exercise of Warrants; Fractions

 

 

(a)

The holder of any Warrants may exercise his right to acquire Common Shares in part and may thereby acquire a number of Common Shares less than the aggregate number which such holder is entitled. In the event of any exercise of a number of Warrants less than the number which the holder is entitled to exercise, the holder of the Warrants upon such exercise shall, in addition, be entitled to receive, without charge therefor, a new Warrant Certificate(s) in respect of the balance of the Warrants represented by the surrendered Warrant Certificate(s) and which were not then exercised.

(b)

Notwithstanding anything herein contained, including any adjustment provided for in Article 4, the Corporation shall not be required, upon the exercise of any Warrants (and after taking into account the aggregate number of Common Shares purchased pursuant to the exercise of all Warrants by a particular holder on a particular Exercise Date), to issue fractions of Common Shares or to distribute certificates which evidence a fractional Common Share. The Corporation shall not be required to make any payment to a Warrantholder who, absent this Subsection 3.4(b), would otherwise have been entitled to receive a fractional Common Share.

 

3.5

Expiration of Warrants

 

 

(a)

Immediately after the Time of Expiry, all rights under any Warrant in respect of which the right of acquisition herein and therein provided for shall not have been exercised shall cease and terminate and such Warrant shall be void and of no further force or effect except to the extent that the Warrantholder has not received certificates representing the Common Shares held by it, in which instances the Warrantholder's rights hereunder shall continue until it has received that to which it is entitled hereunder.

 

 

(b)

Notwithstanding anything else to the contrary contained herein, if at any time prior to December 19, 2019 the volume-weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the Exchange (or such other recognized Canadian stock exchange as the Common Shares are then trading on) exceeds USD$0.60 per share for a period of 21 consecutive trading days, the Corporation may, at its option, accelerate the Expiry Date by delivery of an Acceleration Notice to the Warrantholder and issuing an Acceleration Press Release, and, in such case, the Expiry Date shall be deemed to be the 21st day following the later of (i) the date on which the Acceleration Notice is sent to the Warrantholder, and (ii) the date of issuance of the Acceleration Press Release.

 

3.6

Securities Restrictions

 

Notwithstanding anything herein contained, no Common Shares will be issued pursuant to the exercise of any Warrant if the issuance of such Common Shares would constitute a violation of the securities laws of any applicable jurisdiction, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event that the Warrants are exercised pursuant to Section 3.1, the certificates representing the Common Shares thereby issued will bear such legend as may, in the opinion of Counsel to the Corporation, be necessary in order to avoid a violation of any securities laws of any province in Canada or of the United States or to comply with the requirements of any stock exchange on which the Common Shares are listed, provided that if, at any time, in the opinion of Counsel to the Corporation, such legends are no longer necessary in order to avoid a violation of any such laws, or the holder of any such legended certificate, at the holder's expense, provides the Corporation with evidence satisfactory in form and substance to the Corporation (which may include an opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Corporation) to the effect that such holder is entitled to sell or otherwise transfer such Common Shares in a transaction in which such legends are not required, such legended certificate may thereafter be surrendered to the Corporation in exchange for a certificate which does not bear such legend.

ARTICLE 4
ADJUSTMENT OF NUMBER OF COMMON SHARES

 

4.1

Adjustment of Number of Common Shares

 

The acquisition rights in effect at any date attaching to the Warrants shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as follows:

 

 

(a)

if and whenever at any time from the date hereof and prior to the Time of Expiry, the Corporation shall:

 

 

(i)

subdivide, redivide or change its outstanding Common Shares into a greater number of shares;

 

 

(ii)

reduce, combine or consolidate its outstanding Common Shares into a smaller number of shares; or

 

 

(iii)

issue Common Shares or securities exchangeable for or convertible into Common Shares to all or substantially all the holders of the then outstanding Common Shares by way of stock dividend or otherwise (other than the issue of Common Shares to holders of Common Shares pursuant to their exercise of options or the exercise of previously granted warrants, including the Warrants issued hereunder, or as dividends in the form of Common Shares in lieu of dividends paid in the ordinary course on the Common Shares);

 

then the Exercise Price shall be adjusted, in the case of any action described in (i) or (ii) above, on the effective date thereof, and, in the case of any action described in (iii) above, immediately after the record date thereof by multiplying the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such effective date or the close of business on such record date, as the case may be, by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the total number of Common Shares outstanding immediately prior to such effective date or the close of business on such record date, as the case may be, and the denominator shall be the total number of Common Shares outstanding on such effective date or immediately after such record date, as the case may be, and, upon any adjustment of the Exercise Price pursuant to this subsection 4.1(a), the number of Common Shares subject to the right of purchase under each Warrant shall be contemporaneously adjusted by multiplying the number of Common Shares theretofore obtainable on the exercise thereof by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the respective Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such adjustment and the denominator shall be the respective Exercise Price resulting from such adjustment. Such adjustment shall be made successively whenever any event referred to in this subsection 4.1(a) shall occur;

(b)

if and whenever at any time from the date hereof and prior to the Time of Expiry, there is a reclassification of the Common Shares or a capital reorganization of the Corporation other than as described in Subsection 4.1(a) or a consolidation, amalgamation, arrangement or merger of the Corporation with or into any other body corporate, trust, partnership or other entity, or a sale, lease, exchange or transfer of the property and assets of the Corporation as an entirety or substantially as an entirety to any other body corporate, trust, partnership or other entity, a Warrantholder shall be entitled to receive and shall accept, in lieu of the number of Common Shares originally sought to be acquired by it, the number of shares or other securities or property of the Corporation or of the body corporate, trust, partnership or other entity resulting from such consolidation, amalgamation, arrangement or merger, or to which such sale, lease, exchange or transfer may be made, as the case may be, that such Warrantholder would have been entitled to receive on such reclassification, capital reorganization, consolidation, amalgamation, arrangement or merger, sale, lease, exchange or transfer, if, on the record date or the effective date thereof, as the case may be, the Warrantholder had been the registered holder of the number of Common Shares originally sought to be acquired by it and to which it was entitled to acquire upon the exercise of the Warrants. If determined appropriate by the Corporation to give effect to or to evidence the provisions of this Subsection 4.1(b), the Corporation, its successor, or such purchasing body corporate, partnership, trust or other entity, as the case may be, shall, prior to or contemporaneously with any such reclassification, reorganization, consolidation, amalgamation, arrangement, merger, sale, lease, exchange or transfer, issue a new Warrant Certificate or amend this Warrant Certificate which shall provide, to the extent possible, for the application of the provisions set forth herein with respect to the rights and interests thereafter of the Warrantholder to the end that the provisions set forth in this Warrant Certificate shall thereafter correspondingly be made applicable, as nearly as may reasonably be, with respect to any shares, other securities or property to which a Warrantholder is entitled on the exercise of its acquisition rights thereafter. Any warrant certificate issued by the Corporation, any successor to the Corporation or such purchasing body corporate, partnership, trust or other entity and the Corporation shall provide for adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided in this Section 4.1 and which shall apply to successive reclassifications, reorganizations, consolidations, amalgamations, arrangements, mergers, sales, leases, exchanges or transfers;

 

 

(c)

if and whenever at any time after the date hereof and prior to the Time of Expiry:

 

 

(i)

the Corporation shall fix a record date for the issuance of rights, options or warrants to all or substantially all of the holders of Common Shares entitling them to subscribe for or purchase Common Shares (or securities convertible into or exchangeable for Common Shares) at a price per share (or having a conversion price per share or exchange price per share) less than 95% of the Current Market Price on such record date, and

then, the Exercise Price shall be adjusted immediately after such record date so that it shall equal the price determined by multiplying the Exercise Price in effect on such record date by the following fraction:

 

A + (B / C)

  A + D

 

 

Where:

 

A

=

Total number of Common Shares outstanding on the record date

Total number of additional Common Shares offered for subscription or purchase (or into or for which the convertible or exchangeable securities so offered are convertible or exchangeable)

 

 

and,

 

 

(iii)

any Common Shares owned by or held for the account of the Corporation or any Subsidiary of the Corporation shall be deemed not to be outstanding for the purpose of any such computation;

(v)

to the extent that any such rights, options or warrants are not so issued or any such rights, options or warrants are not exercised prior to the expiration thereof, the Exercise Price shall then be readjusted to the Exercise Price which would then be in effect if such record date had not been fixed or to the Exercise Price which would then be in effect based upon the number and aggregate price of Common Shares (or securities convertible into Common Shares) actually issued upon the exercise of such rights, options or warrants, as the case may be; and

 

 

(vi)

upon any adjustment of the Exercise Price pursuant to this subsection 4.1(c), the number of Common Shares subject to the right of purchase under each Warrant shall be contemporaneously adjusted by multiplying the number of Common Shares theretofore obtainable on the exercise thereof by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the respective Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such adjustment and the denominator shall be the respective Exercise Price resulting from such adjustment;

 

 

(d)

if and whenever at any time after the date hereof and prior to the Time of Expiry:

 

 

(i)

the Corporation shall fix a record date for the making of a distribution to all or substantially all the holders of its outstanding Common Shares of:

 

 

(A)

securities of any class, whether of the Corporation or any other corporation (other than a distribution of securities in respect of which an adjustment is provided for in Section 4.1(a), (b) or (c));

(C)

assets or property of the Corporation; and

Where:

 

A

=

Total number of Common Shares outstanding on such record date

any Common Shares owned by or held for the account of the Corporation or any Subsidiary of the Corporation shall be deemed not to be outstanding for the purpose of any such computation;

 

 

(iv)

such adjustment shall be made successively whenever such a record date is fixed;

 

 

(v)

to the extent that such distribution is not so made or any rights, options or warrants distributed are not exercised prior to their expiration thereof, the Exercise Price shall then be readjusted to the Exercise Price which would then be in effect if such record date had not been fixed or to the Exercise Price which would then be in effect based upon such shares, evidences of indebtedness or assets actually distributed, as the case may be; and

 

 

(vi)

upon any adjustment of the Exercise Price pursuant to Subsection 4.1(d), the number of Common Shares subject to the right of purchase under each Warrant shall be contemporaneously adjusted by multiplying the number of Common Shares theretofore obtainable on the exercise thereof by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the respective Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such adjustment and the denominator shall be the respective Exercise Price resulting from such adjustment;

 

 

(e)

the adjustments provided for in this Article 4 in the number of Common Shares and classes of securities which are to be received on the exercise of Warrants are cumulative. After any adjustment pursuant to this Section 4.1, the term "Common Shares" where used in this Warrant Certificate shall be interpreted to mean securities of any class or classes which, as a result of such adjustment and all prior adjustments pursuant to this Section 4.1, the Warrantholder is entitled to receive upon the exercise of its Warrant, and the number of Common Shares indicated by any exercise made pursuant to a Warrant shall be interpreted to mean the number of Common Shares or other property or securities a Warrantholder is entitled to receive, as a result of such adjustment and all prior adjustments pursuant to this Section 4.1, upon the full exercise of a Warrant;

(g)

if and whenever at any time from the date hereof and prior to the Time of Expiry, the Corporation shall take any action affecting or relating to the Common Shares, other than any action described in this Article, which in the opinion of the Corporation would prejudicially affect the rights of any holders of Warrants, the number of Common Shares to be issued on the exercise of Warrants and the exercise price thereof will, subject to the approval of the Exchange, be adjusted by the Corporation in such manner, if any, and at such time, as the Corporation may in its sole discretion determine to be equitable in the circumstances.

 

4.2

No De Minimis Adjustments

 

No adjustment in the Exercise Price or in the number of Common Shares subject to the right of purchase under each Warrant shall be required unless such adjustment would result in a change of at least 1% in the Exercise Price then in effect or unless the number of Common Shares subject to the right of purchase under each Warrant would change by at least 1/100th of a Common Share, provided, however, that any adjustments, which, except for the provisions of this Subsection 4.2 would otherwise have been required to be made, shall be carried forward and taken into account in any subsequent adjustment.

 

4.3

Entitlement to Shares on Exercise of Warrant

 

All shares of any class or other securities which a Warrantholder is at the time in question entitled to receive on the exercise of its Warrant, whether or not as a result of adjustments made pursuant to this Article 4, shall, for the purposes of the interpretation of this Warrant Certificate, be deemed to be shares which such Warrantholder is entitled to acquire pursuant to such Warrant.

 

4.4

Determination by Corporation's Auditors

 

In the event of any question arising with respect to the adjustments provided for in this Article 4, such question shall be conclusively determined by the Corporation's Auditors who shall have access to all necessary records of the Corporation, and such determination shall be binding upon the Corporation, the Warrantholder and all other persons interested therein.

 

4.5

Proceedings Prior to any Action Requiring Adjustment

 

As a condition precedent to the taking of any action which would require an adjustment in any of the acquisition rights pursuant to any of the Warrants, including the number of Common Shares which are to be received upon the exercise thereof, the Corporation shall take any corporate action which may, in the opinion of Counsel, be necessary in order that the Corporation has unissued and reserved in its authorized capital and may validly and legally issue as fully paid and non assessable all the shares which the holders of such Warrants are entitled to receive on the full exercise thereof in accordance with the provisions hereof.

4.7

Notice of Special Matters

 

The Corporation covenants with the Warrantholder that, so long as any Warrants remain outstanding, it will give notice to the Warrantholder of its intention to fix a record date that is prior to the Expiry Date for the issuance of rights, options or warrants (other than the Warrants) to all or substantially all the holders of its outstanding Common Shares.

The notice shall be given in each case at least 14 days prior to such applicable record date.

 

4.8
