("Trifecta"). The Record Date for the determination of the Strategic shareholders who will be entitled to receive the materials for the Meeting was the close of business on March 16, 2017. Upon approval of the special resolution as provided for herein at the Meeting and receipt of a Final Order from the Court, Strategic will fix the Share Distribution Record Date, which will establish the Strategic shareholders who will be entitled to receive Trifecta shares pursuant to the Arrangement. It is anticipated that the Share Distribution Record Date will be on or about April 27, 2017, with confirmation of the actual date to be provided by Strategic by way of a subsequent news release.

Full details of the Arrangement are contained within a management information circular that will be mailed to registered Strategic shareholders and to brokerage intermediaries on behalf of beneficial Strategic shareholders where applicable at least 21 days before the date of the Meeting. This management information circular, together with the form of proxy to be sent to Strategic's shareholders, can now be reviewed by interested persons under Strategic's profile at www.sedar.com. Under the Arrangement, Strategic has sold its Eureka, LLL and OOO properties to Trifecta and invested $750,000 by way of private placements to acquire 22,000,000 Trifecta common shares. Strategic will distribute most of these Trifecta common shares to Strategic shareholders on the basis of one Trifecta common share for each four and one-half (4 ½) shares of Strategic held as of the Share Distribution Record Date. Upon completion of the Arrangement, Strategic will retain approximately 9.8% of the Trifecta shares then outstanding.

The listing of Trifecta's common shares is expected to occur shortly after the filing of the final Court Order approving the Arrangement with each of the Registrar of Companies for British Columbia and the TSX Venture Exchange, subject to Trifecta having filed all requisite supporting documents with the Exchange.
