Based on the results of the survey, 3457265 acquired 4 blocks of claims (the "Mining Claims. The Mining Claims cover a total of over 25 linear kilometres of conductive material with similar geophysical signatures to the Ti-Nou graphite deposits within the Matawinie property").

In exchange for this technical support, 3457265 Canada inc. granted Nouveau Monde an exclusive and irrevocable option to acquire 100% interest in the Mining Claims under the following terms:


--  Reimbursement of the airborne survey costs and costs related to the
    claim acquisition ($317,700) by way of a share issuance at a

    option agreement by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"); 
--  Delivery of a total of $300,000 in exploration work over the next 24
    months, $100,000 of which is to be provided in the first 12 months and
    $200,000 in the following 12 months;

On successful completion of these terms of the Agreement, Nouveau Monde assumes 100% ownership of the Mining Claims subject to a 2% NSR Royalty held by 345726. Nouveau Monde can buy back the NSR Royalty for $1,000,0000 for each 1%

Moreover, were Nouveau Monde ever to file a positive preliminary feasibility study or/and a feasibility study, Nouveau Monde undertakes, upon each such filing, to either issue 1,000,000 common shares of its share capital to 3457265, or to pay 3457265 $1,000,000, at Nouveau Monde's sole discretion.
