Update on acquisitions and financing

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. Among other things, closing is conditional upon the completion of a financing to fund the US$20 million acquisition cost and receipt of all required regulatory approvals including final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange. 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.
