Pursuant to the terms thereof, each of the 19,166,666 initial subscription receipts issued by R2 on July 31, 2014 in its previously announced $5.75 million private placement have been converted into pre-consolidated 19,166,666 units of San Antonio and 19,166,666 subscription receipts of San Antonio (each, a "Subscription Receipt"). The Company has received $2,875,000 plus interest from escrow. Each San Antonio unit consists of one common share of San Antonio and one pre-consolidated common share purchase warrant, entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional San Antonio common share at a price of $0.25 until July 31, 2019.

The Company's currently issued and outstanding 75,140,272 common shares (after giving effect to the RTO) will resume trading on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") on September 5, 2014.
