Quotation agreement

1       +Quotation  of our additional +securities is in ASX's absolute discretion.  ASX may  quote  the
        +securities on any conditions it decides.

2       We warrant the following to ASX.

        -     The  issue  of  the +securities to be quoted complies with the law and is  not  for  an
              illegal purpose.

        -     There is no reason why those +securities should not be granted +quotation.

        -     An  offer  of  the  +securities for sale within 12 months after their  issue  will  not
              require disclosure under section 707(3) or section 1012C(6) of the Corporations Act.
              
              Note:  An  entity  may need to obtain appropriate warranties from subscribers  for  the
              securities in order to be able to give this warranty

        -     Section  724  or  section  1016E  of  the  Corporations  Act  does  not  apply  to  any
              applications received by us in relation to any +securities to be quoted and  that  no-
              one  has any right to return any +securities to be quoted under sections 737,  738  or
              1016F  of  the  Corporations Act at the time that we request that the  +securities  be
              quoted.
        
        -     If  we  are  a trust, we warrant that no person has the right to return the +securities
              to  be  quoted under section 1019B of the Corporations Act at the time that we request
              that the +securities be quoted.

3       We will indemnify ASX to the fullest extent permitted by law in respect of any claim, action or
        expense arising from or connected with any breach of the warranties in this agreement.

4       We  give  ASX  the  information and documents required by this form.   If  any  information  or
        document  not  available now, will give it to ASX before +quotation of the +securities  begins.
        We  acknowledge that ASX is relying on the information and documents.  We warrant that they are
        (will be) true and complete.
