- Issuing a number of Goliath Shares to UrbanGold having a value of $40,000 at a price per Goliath Share based on the volume weighted average price of Goliath Shares trading on the Exchange for the ten (10) trading days immediately preceding the date upon which Goliath exercises the option to earn its interest in the Property.
In addition to the terms listed above (i) UrbanGold will be granted a royalty consisting of a 1% net smelter return on the Property, (ii) UrbanGold will be awarded a one-time $500,000 cash payment should a future mineral resources estimate disclosing a minimum 250,000 ounces of gold equivalent mineral resources in the inferred, indicated or measured categories be established on the Property; and (iii) Goliath will be assuming a pre-existing 1% net smelter return royalty.
