The initial tranche consisted of 4,349,500 CDN$ units (the "CDN$ Units") of the Company at a price of CDN$0.13 per CDN$ Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately CDN$565,435. Each CDN$ Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company and one Common Share purchase warrant (a "CDN$ Warrant").

If the closing price of the common shares of the Company on the OTCQB Venture Marketplace is US$0.18 or higher for five consecutive trading days, then the CDN$ Warrant will expire thirty trading days from such fifth consecutive day.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used by Silver Bull for general working capital purposes. The Company has agreed to pay a finder's fee on the initial tranche of CDN$5,195 from subscriptions arranged by certain brokers.
All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws, which will expire four months plus one day from the date of closing of the Private Placement, and U.S. securities laws, which will expire six months from the date of the closing of the Private Placement.
The securities issued under the Private Placement have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any state securities laws, and accordingly, may not be offered or sold within the United States except in compliance with the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities requirements or pursuant to exemptions therefrom.
