Gross proceeds from the issuance of the Charity Units and FT Units will be used to incur “Canadian exploration expenses” that qualify as “flow-through critical mineral mining expenditures”, as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Tax Act”), on Q2’s lithium projects in Quebec that the Company will renounce to the subscribers pursuant to the Tax Act with an effective date not later than December 31, 2024.

Proceeds from the sale of the NFT Units will be used for general working capital.
