Under the terms of the Agreement, the Company is responsible for conducting the exploration program and is obligated to expend a minimum of $150,000 over the next two years, with additional expenditures possible in future years. Conducting drilling on Newmont lands is part of the work commitment, but the Agreement can be terminated after the minimum expenditure commitment has been made. The Agreement outlines the terms of a joint venture if the Company's program is successful in which Newmont can earn up to 70% of the project by expending 150% of the Company's expenditures up to the point that Newmont decides to form a joint venture. If the Company defines economic mineralization and Newmont decides not to joint venture, then the Company can obtain ownership of any or all of the Newmont lands within the Area of Influence and Newmont would retain three percent (3%) of net smelter returns (NSR) as royalty interest.The work plan for 2011 and 2012 is to conduct additional geophysics that will help define important structural trends under the gravels, depth to bedrock and other important features of the valley fill. Interpretation of the geochemical and drill data provided by Newmont, in conjunction with the geophysics, will help guide the drilling program to be done over the next couple of field seasons.
