Nevada Sunrise will have the right to accelerate the timing of cash and share payments to the vendors at its discretion. If minimum exploration expenditures, which include property maintenance costs, are exceeded in any year, the excess expenditures will be credited to a succeeding year. For the purposes of an anniversary common shares payment, the value of such payment by Nevada Sunrise to the vendors shall be calculated at a minimum price of CAD$0.15 per common share, and if the closing price of the Company's common shares on the TSXV on the business day prior to any anniversary date when a common shares payment is due and payable is less than CAD$0.15, the monetary difference between CAD$0.15 and the closing share price of the Company shall be paid to the vendors in cash. On the 4th anniversary payment due date, if the cash spot price of copper as quoted on the London Metal Exchange exceeds $4.00 per pound, then the cash payment due of $1,250,000 will be increased to $1,500,000.

The vendors shall retain a 2.0% NSR applicable to the Property, 50% of which can be purchased for up to five years after the effective date of the Agreement (i.e., 1.0%) at any time for $1,500,000, minus any advance royalty payments made by the Company. An advance royalty payment of $500,000 would be payable to the vendors upon completion of a feasibility study.

After five years and for a period of up to ten years after the effective date of the Agreement, the NSR Buydown shall be adjusted according to the following calculations: (i) if the London Metal Exchange monthly average price for copper in the month prior to exercise of the NSR Buydown is less than or equal to $4.00 per pound, then no adjustment to the NSR Buydown shall be made; (ii) if the London Metal Exchange monthly average price for copper in the month prior to exercise of the NSR Buydown is greater than $4.00 per pound, then the price of the NSR Buydown shall be adjusted by multiplying the NSR Buydown by a factor consisting of the London Metal Exchange monthly average price for copper in the month prior to exercise of the NSR Buydown divided by $4.00. Beyond ten years after the effective date of the Agreement, the Company's NSR Buydown right will expire, and there will be no specific right for Nevada Sunrise to acquire a portion of the NSR.

Should additional staking be required at Coronado, the vendors shall have a right of first refusal to perform the work. A 2.5 mile (4 kilometre) area of interest clause applies to the claims boundaries within the Property.

The Coronado transaction is subject to acceptance by the TSXV.
