It has committed to spend $106-million over the period, including $22-million in 2014.

Manitok also announced Monday that a syndicate of underwriters initially agreed to acquire $20-million worth of flow-through shares from the company, and then increased the bought-deal to $25-million later in the morning.

It said proceeds from the equity sale will be used by Manitok for exploration on its Canadian properties prior to Dec, 31, 2014. The flow-through shares allow investors to receive tax credits for eligible spending by the company.
