The non-brokered private placement consisted of the placement of 5,900,000 flow-through units (“FT Unit”) and 5,900,000 non-flow-through units (“NFT Unit”) each being placed at a price of $0.05 per unit. The FT Unit was comprised of one share and one-half share purchase warrant exercisable at a price of $0.075 for a period of eighteen (18) months from the date of closing the private placement. The non-flow-through placement consisted of 5,900,000 units (“NFT Unit”) consisting of one share and a full warrant and are exercisable at a price of $0.05 for a period of eighteen (18) months following the date of closing of the private placement.
As compensation for the placement of the units, District Copper issued to eligible finders 200,000 finder’s shares calculated at 10% of the units placed and 300,000 finder’s warrants also calculated at 10% of the units placed.

All securities issued by District Copper pursuant to the offering have been issued subject to a four month hold period expiring June 9, 2019.
The $590,000 proceeds comprised of flow-through and non-flow-through funds enabled District Copper to meet the requirements set out by the TSX Venture Exchange to raise a minimum $400,000 for funding the first phase of a recommended exploration program on the Stoney Lake Property thereby facilitating the concurrent closing of the Stoney Lake Property acquisition.
The remaining funds raised will be used as general working capital, including general and administrative expenses.
