Each whole Warrant will be exercisable into a non-flow-through common share of Kivalliq (a "Warrant Share") for a period of 24 months from the Closing Date at an exercise price of $0.28.
The Warrants will be subject to an acceleration clause, whereby, if the weighted average trading price of Kivalliq's shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") is at a price equal to or greater than $0.50 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days, Kivalliq will have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants.
