Warrant holders who wish to exercise their Warrants should instruct their investment advisor to effect an "immediate exercise" and be prepared to provide payment (by certified cheque, bank draft or money order payable to Colossus Minerals Inc.) to the investment advisor firm equal to the exercise price for each warrant exercised. Once Equity Financial Trust Company receives payment and the required documentation the Warrants will be cancelled and the warrant holder will receive Colossus common shares.
