Through the purchase of Common Shares in the Private Placement, Mr. Sprott maintained a 19.9% interest in Discovery. The conversion of the Subscription Receipts results in Mr. Sprott’s interest in the Company increasing to approximately 21%.
The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used primarily to fund Discovery’s continuing exploration programs. A portion of the proceeds will be used for general working capital purposes.
