Pursuant to the Offering, the Corporation is targeting to raise minimum aggregate gross proceeds of $4 million (the “Minimum Offering”) and maximum aggregate gross proceeds of $10 million.

Secutor Capital Management Corporation (the “Agent”) has been appointed as exclusive lead agent for the Offering. The Corporation and the Agent have not yet entered into an agency agreement.
Each unit (a “Unit”) is comprised of three non “flow-through” common shares of KWG (each an “Offered Common Share”) and two non “flow-through” common share purchase warrants (each an “Offered Warrant”) at a price of $0.165 per Unit (the “Unit Offering Price”). Each Offered Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one non “flow-through” common share of KWG (a “Warrant Share”) until the date that is 24 months following the closing of the Offering at a price of $0.10 per Warrant Share.
In addition, the Offering includes common shares of KWG, which will each qualify as a “flow-through share” (each, a “Flow-Through Share”) within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) at a price of $0.055 per Flow-Through Share (the “Flow-Through Offering Price”).
In connection with the Offering, the Corporation will grant to the Agent an option (the “Over-Allotment Option”) to sell, as agent, additional Flow-Through Shares (the “Additional Flow-Through Shares”), equal to not more than 15% of the number of Flow-Through Shares sold pursuant to the Maximum Offering, at the Flow-Through Offering Price and to purchase additional Units (the “Additional Units”), equal to not more than 15% of the number of Units sold pursuant to the Maximum Offering, at the Unit Offering Price to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes.
