Under the terms of the mineral agreement between the parties, in consideration for the acquisition of the Conglomerate Mesa claims, the Company agreed to, among other things:

(iii) grant the Owners a production royalty (the "Royalty") consisting of four percent (4%) of the net smelter returns on sale proceeds received by the Company from the sale of minerals from the property, and

(iv) expend a minimum of $100,000 annually on exploring, prospecting or developing the property.

Closing of the Mineral Agreement is subject to the completion of a number of conditions, including: payment of the Closing Funds, execution of all instruments or other documents required to transfer title to the claims to the Company, receipt of a title opinion reflecting ownership of the claims, and receipt of all required regulatory approvals. There is no assurance that the transaction will be completed as planned or at all.

About the Conglomerate Mesa Project

The Conglomerate Mesa Project hosts structurally and stratigraphically controlled, sediment-hosted gold mineralization similar to the "Carlin-type" deposits of north-central Nevada. The property was originally explored by Newmont Mining Corporation while it was within the Cerro Gordo Wilderness Study Area (WSA). Newmont withdrew from Conglomerate Mesa in 1993. Federal agencies dropped the property's WSA status the following year. The core area of the Conglomerate Mesa property was explored by BHP Billiton in 1995, with eight target zones identified, based partly on surface road cut channel samples. In 1997, BHP conducted a widely-spaced, 10-hole reverse-circulation drill program at Conglomerate Mesa. Despite its location between two prolific mining districts (Cerro Gordo and Santa Rosa) and the positive surface gold grades encountered by Newmont, BHP, and other prior owners, the Conglomerate Mesa property did not see historic mining because the sediment-hosted gold particles are micron-sized and therefore could not be panned by prospectors.
