Each of the shares will be accompanied by one common share purchase warrant.

Canada Silver Cobalt acquired the 50% interest in the five mining leases in lieu of a $500,000 debt which Granada Gold owed to it. As part of the 2017 transaction, Granada Gold retained a back-in option to repurchase the 50% interest in the five mining leases for $500,000.
Closing of the transaction is expected to take place within the coming days. The shares and warrants issued by Canada Silver Cobalt at closing will be subject to a four-month hold period under applicable securities regulations and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
