Vancouver, British Columbia – Providence Gold Mines Inc.

Each Unit will be comprised of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”), with each whole Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share of Providence Gold at a price of $0.25 per share for a period of 2 years.
