Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one additional common share in the capital of the Company at a price of $0.25 per share until July 24, 2022.

Insiders of the Company participated in the Offering for an aggregate amount of approximately $229,000. Such participation is considered a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). In completing such transaction, Golden Ridge relied on the applicable exemptions from the valuation requirement and minority security holder approval requirements available under Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of MI 61-101, respectively, on the basis that the participation in the Offering by insiders did not exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
The proceeds of the Offering will be used for exploration activities on its Canadian properties and working capital respectively. All securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a statutory four month and one day hold period expiring on November 25, 2020.
