The Company must make aggregate cash payments of US$99,067 on annual basis for such period under the Amended Lease Agreements. Such annual payments are indexed to the Production Price Index for Industrial Commodities as published by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (the “PPI”). The Company may, in its sole discretion, elect to pay an aggregate of US $27,018 (indexed to PPI) of the annual amount payable under the Lease Agreements by issuing common shares at a deemed value equal to the 20-day volume weighted average price of the Company’s common shares as traded on the TSXV, subject to the maximum discounted market price allowed under the policies of the TSXV.
