The Underwriters shall also have the option (the "Underwriters' Option") to purchase from Integra Gold up to an additional 15% of the number of Flow-Through Shares and up to an additional 15% of the number of Common Shares sold pursuant to the Offering. The Offering will take place by way of a private placement to qualified investors in such provinces of Canada as the Underwriters may designate, and otherwise in those jurisdictions where the Offering can lawfully be made, including but not limited to the United States under applicable private placement exemptions.

In consideration for their services, the Underwriters will receive a cash commission equal to 6.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, including any offered securities sold pursuant to the Underwriters' Option. As additional consideration, Integra Gold has agreed to pay to the Underwriters a number of broker warrants (the "Broker Warrants") equal to 5.0% of the Common Shares and Flow-Through Shares issued under the Offering. Each Broker Warrant is exercisable into one Common Share for a period of 12 months at a price of $0.28.
