The Financing consisted of 2,356,443 units (the "Units") at a price of CAD $0.135 per Unit for combined total gross proceeds of CAD $318,119. Each Unit purchased will include one common share as well as one common share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share for five (5) years at a price of CAD $0.18 per common share.
In connection with the financing, Aben issued a total of 15,555 warrants to finders (the "Finder's Warrants") who introduced certain subscribers to the private placement.

Aben is currently drilling a 2,100m drill program on its flagship property, Forest Kerr. The 23,000-hectare Forrest Kerr Gold Property is located in North Western British Columbia's Golden Triangle region. Drilling conducted in the early 1990's and 2000's at these zones returned some of the highest grades on the Forrest Kerr Property and the Company feels there is the potential for the expansion of these known zones based on recent data compilation, structural geological interpretation and additional field reconnaissance work.
