Each Flow Through Unit will consist of one flow through share and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant. Each Unit will consist of one common share and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant. Each warrant, whether acquired as part of a Flow Through Unit or Unit, will entitle the holder to purchase one common share at an exercise price of $0.20 for 24 months following completion of the offering.

The TSX Venture Exchange has consented to the Warrant extension and re-pricing.
Exploration has identified numerous targets with gold or base metal potential on our Cranbrook Properties. The Company is of the view that the next targets to test, on the Vine Property, have potential to host Sedex (Sedimentary Exhalative) massive sulphide zinc, lead, and silver mineralization. There are 2 large target areas (eastern and western) on the Vine Property. Only 3 holes have been drilled to a target depth of the footwall quartzite in the eastern target area. Two of these holes, drilled in the 1990’s, intersected zinc, lead, silver massive sulphide mineralization. The third is PJX’s recent hole which intersected a possible important structure for controlling mineralization. The western gravity target area has never been drilled. More detailed gravity and magnetic geophysical surveys are planned prior to testing.
“The geological environment is considered by consulting geologists to be similar to the Sullivan Sedex deposit that is located 35 kilometres north of the Vine Property. The property is crossed by power lines and rail with road access year round, and is only a 20 minute drive south along Highway 3 from mining friendly Cranbrook.” states company President and CEO John Keating.
The foregoing geological disclosure has been reviewed by John Keating, P.Geo. (a qualified person for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects). Mr. Keating is the President, CEO and a Director of PJX.
