The Units are comprised of one common share and one-half of one share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). One whole Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share for a period of two years at a price of $1.50 per share for the first year, and $1.75 per share for the second year.
Mirasol paid cash finder’s fees equal to 6% of the value of the Units, and issued broker warrants (“B Warrants”) equal to 8% of the number of Units sold. Each B Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share for a period of two years at a price of $1.50 per share. All securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a hold period until April 22, 2010. The proceeds from the Offering will be used for exploration activities and general working capital.

Mirasol currently holds 100% of the rights of eight active exploration projects and twelve early-stage precious metals prospects in Santa Cruz Province, in the Patagonian region of southern Argentina, identified through the Company’s proprietary exploration. Strategic joint ventures and partnerships with producers have enabled Mirasol to pursue success in project generation. At the Joaquin Project silver-gold discovery, exploration is being funded and operated by Mirasol’s joint venture partner Coeur d’Alene Mines. In addition, Mirasol holds 100% interest in the Rubi copper-gold porphyry target, strategically located in the El Salvador copper mining district, northern Chile.
