Concurrent with the NSR investment, Sandstorm will subscribe for 3.44 million units of a private placement at $0.145 per unit for total proceeds of $500,000. Each unit is to consist of one common share and one half of one transferable share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will be exercisable at $0.22 for a period of five years.
