Corporate Update

Brixton Metals also declared the grant of incentive stock options to its directors, officers, consultants, and employees for an aggregate amount of 4,300,000 (the “Options”). The Options are exercisable at $0.30 per share for a duration of 10 years and are conditional on provisions of the company’s stock option plan as approved by its shareholders and the Annual General Meeting.

The Stock Option grant was approved by members of the Compensation Committee and Board of Directors to:
