The Bond and accrued interest would be due and payable on the second anniversary of date of issue. The principal amount of the Bond would be convertible at the option of Jereh prior to maturity at the conversion prices of C$0.32 and C$0.50 per share during the first year and second year of its term respectively.

In addition to conditions customary for transactions of this nature, the completion of the Transaction is conditional upon the following: (a) the completion by West Mountain, Jereh and their respective advisors of "due diligence" investigations satisfactory to the parties in their respective sole discretion; (b) the entering into of definitive binding agreements providing for the various transactions that comprise the transaction with Jereh; and (c) the Company receiving all necessary consents and approvals, including approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
