Pursuant to this closing of this tranche of the private placement, 50,000,000 units ("Units") were issued at a price of $0.02 per Unit, for aggregate consideration of $1,000,000. Each Unit consisted of one (1) Common Share of the Company and one (1) share purchase warrant (the "Warrant") (each full Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one (1) additional Common Share of the Company for a period of 12 months from the issuance of the Units at a price of $0.05) (the "Offering").

The net proceeds will be used to maintain and increase Emerald Bay's interest in the electrical power generation project and gas wells at Nevis, Alberta.

All of the Common Shares and Warrants issued pursuant to the private placement are subject to a 4-month hold period. Completion of the private placement is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
