Each Debenture will be convertible at the option of the holder thereof into common shares in the capital of the Company (the “Conversion Shares”) at a conversion price of US$0.255 per Conversion Share (the “Conversion Price”), being the equivalent of a conversion price of C$0.35 per Conversion Share, at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the last business day immediately preceding the date that is 36 months following the Closing Date (the “Maturity Date”).

Interest on the principal amount outstanding under each Debenture shall accrue during the period commencing on the Closing Date until the Maturity Date and shall be payable in cash on an annual basis on December 31st of each year (each, an “Interest Payment Date”); provided, however, that the first Interest Payment Date shall be December 31, 2024.

During each interest period (an “Interest Period”), being the period commencing on the Closing Date to but excluding the first Interest Payment Date and thereafter the period from and including an Interest Payment Date to but excluding the next Interest Payment Date or other applicable payment date, the Base Interest Rate will be adjusted based on a gold price of US$2,000 per ounce, with the Base Interest Rate being increased by 1% per annum for each US$100 in which the average gold price for such Interest Period exceeds US$2,000 per ounce, up to a maximum interest rate of 30% per annum. Any adjustment to the Base Interest Rate in respect of an Interest Period shall be calculated based on the average gold price quoted by the London Bullion Market Association, being the LBMA Gold Price PM, in respect of the first Interest Period, from the Closing Date to and including December 15, 2024, and for each subsequent Interest Period, from January 1st to and including December 15th of that year or 15 days prior to the applicable payment date.
