The Warrants are subject to an acceleration clause whereby if on any 10 consecutive trading days occurring after four months and one day has elapsed from the closing date, the daily volume weighted average trading price of the common shares of the Company is at least $0.50 per share, the Company may accelerate the expiry date of the warrants to the 30th day after the date on which the Company gives notice to the subscriber in accordance with the warrant of such acceleration.

In connection with the First Tranche, which was supported by existing shareholders and insiders, including officers and a director of the Company, Global Energy Metals will issue 4,220,000 Units at a price of C$0.25 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of C$1,055,000.
In connection with the First Tranche, the Company has agreed to pay finder’s fees of $32,000 cash and 128,000 finder warrants priced at $0.40 per share exercisable for a period of twelve (12) months.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be directed toward further exploration and development of its battery mineral properties with a focus on the Lovelock Mine and Treasure Box projects in Nevada, USA. Funds will also be used to support potential future acquisitions as well as for general corporate and working capital purposes allowing for ongoing growth strategy execution.

The Company will rely upon exemptions from the requirement to obtain a formal valuation and seek minority shareholder approval for the private placement on the basis that the fair market value of the Insiders' participation in the private placement will be less than 25% of the Company's current market capitalization.
