("GLR") and Linear Gold Corp. ("Linear") alleging that GLR had purported to enter into an agreement with Linear (the "Linear Agreement") for the sale of GLR's 100% owned Goldfields project (the "Goldfields Project") after a winning bid for the Goldfields Project submitted by Santa Fe had already become a binding and enforceable agreement (the "Santa Fe/GLR Agreement").
