The net proceeds from the Financing will be used by Essex for general working capital purposes, its mineral project and royalty generative activities and exploration expenditures on its existing mineral projects.

Approximately 15% of the proceeds will be utilised in payments to officers and directors as remuneration for management of the Company in the normal course of business, approximately 5% of the proceeds will be utilised in investor relations activities, including a contract renewal with the Company's existing investor relations consultant Harbor Access LLC, and the balance of the proceeds will be utilised in the Company's mineral project and royalty generative activities, costs related to the Company's existing mineral properties and general working capital.
