Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one common share-purchase warrant (the “Warrants”); each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $CDN 0.10 for a period of twenty-four (24) months after the closing of the Offering.

Each Flow-Through Unit will consist of one flow-through eligible common share of Great Lakes and one common share-purchase warrant (the “FT Warrants”); each FT Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional Great Lakes common share (non-flow-through eligible) at a price of $CDN 0.10 for a period of twenty-four (24) months after the closing of the Offering.

A finder’s fee equal to a cash commission of 8% of the aggregate gross proceeds from the Units and/or Flow-Through Units sold, plus finder’s warrants equal to 8% of the aggregate number of Units and/or Flow-Through Units sold, will compensate finders appointed by the Company to source subscriptions. All securities issued by the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day. The Offering is subject to regulatory approval.
