This option may be exercised within 30 days after and including the financing's closing date.
Each unit will comprise 1 common Millennial Lithium share and half of a share purchase warrant, with a whole warrant exercisable for 1 common share at C$4.25 for 24 months from the closing date.
The financing is expected to close on or around March 13, subject to certain conditions, and the proceeds will be used to fund exploration and development activities at Millennial Lithium's properties in Argentina and for general working capital.
