In addition,  4,014,419 common shares were subscribed under the additional subscription privilege. The combined basic and additional subscriptions represent an oversubscription against the 23,761,783 common shares available under the offering.

Given that the offering was fully subscribed, Mountain Province's major shareholder, Dermot Desmond, did not subscribe to additional shares under the offering pursuant to a standby commitment.

The proceeds of the offering will be used to finance a $75 million cost overrun facility, the arrangement of which is a condition precedent to drawdown of Mountain Province's $370 million loan facility.
