Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Corporation (a “Common Share”) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant a “Warrant”).

The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to fund continued exploration and development activities at Aton’s Abu Marawat concession, located in Egypt. All currency amounts are in Canadian dollars.
“Following on from the game-changing announcement that the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources and the Egyptian Mineral Resources Authority are taking wide ranging changes in Egypt’s mining regime to attract new exploration investors. Along with their granting us an extension at our Abu Marawat Concession, we wanted all investors to have the ability to participate in our financing.” Stated Mark Campbell President and CEO. “We are on the path to achieving our goals, of our exploration through an aggressive drilling program this year at Rodruin and the highest priority of our 17 other targets. These are very exciting developments for Aton and its 2019 exploration program for our shareholders, and we want to give everyone the opportunity to share in these historic and exciting developments and exploration and development program in 2019.”
All securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance under applicable Canadian securities laws.
