On February 11, 2014, the Company announced having entered into a definitive agreement with Orvana Minerals Corp. to acquire all rights, title and interest in the Copperwood Project located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan from Orvana.

The Company expects to close the acquisition of the Copperwood project and the previously announced non-brokered private placement of its common shares (see news release of February 18 and March 17, 2014) by May 30, 2014. The Company plans to close forthwith a second tranche of the private placement for general corporate purposes.
As announced on March 5, 2014, the Company and Copper Range Company ("CRC") entered into a definitive asset purchase agreement to acquire the White Pine project. Pending receipt of a required third party approval, the Company and CRC have agreed to extend the date to complete the interim closing of the acquisition to May 9, 2014.
