In conjunction with this financing, a cash payment in the amount of U.S. $150,000 and 200,000 finder warrants were issued to finders. Each whole finder's warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share for U.S. $0.75 per share until November 6, 2009. Upon completion of this financing Probe has 29,994,473 shares issued and outstanding and 4,821,001 shares reserved for stock options and warrants
Proceeds of the financing will be used to fund exploration on the Company's McFauld's Lake properties, including the 100%-owned McFauld's Lake West Project, located approximately 450 metres from Noront Resources' recent high-grade nickel-copper-PGE discovery; and the 100%-owned Victory Project which hosts numerous untested drill targets in a volcanic belt attached to the McFauld's Lake Belt. Exploration on the McFauld's Lake properties will include a program of magnetic and electromagnetic geophysical surveys followed by diamond drilling. Drilling will initially focus on the McFauld's West property, where regional government magnetic data shows the presence of two anomalies within the claims that are similar in size and shape to that associated with Noront's discovery. Management is encouraged by both the properties proximity to this significant discovery and the presence of the magnetic anomalies, and is currently negotiating contracts to begin fieldwork.
