In conjunction with the closing of the private placement, Canarc has also agreed to grant Canford Capital Inc. a 120-day period of exclusivity to complete its due diligence and execute an option agreement to earn up to a 51% interest in the New Polaris gold mine project in return for up to a CAD$30 million investment in exploration and development of the property.

Each whole warrant is exercisable for a period of 36 months at a price of CAD$0.15 per share during the initial 24 months, and at $0.20 per share for the remaining 12 months. The warrants are subject to an accelerated expiry whereby if after January 29, 2013, the 10 day volume weighted average trading price on the Toronto Stock Exchange equals or exceeds CAD$0.30 per share, the Company will have the right to accelerate the exercise of the warrants by giving 30 days written notice to the warrant holder. All common shares issued in the private placement are subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the closing date of the private placement.
Agent’s fees for Canaccord Genuity Corp. are comprised of a cash commission of 8% of the funds raised, agent’s warrants with the identical terms as the underlying warrants in the unit private placement equal to 8% of the financing, plus a corporate finance fee.
