Option agreements on substantially identical terms were entered into by BGCG with the other two directors of Liberty Silver, Howard Crosby and John Ryan, in respect of 1,000,000 Common Shares each.

In connection with these agreements, Reid entered into a Standstill Agreement with BGCG, Liberty Silver and two other directors and senior officers of Liberty Silver whereby BGCG agreed (a) to give Reid the right to vote the Optioned Shares throughout the term of the Option Agreement, (b) not to vote any of its shares against any resolutions put before the shareholders by or upon the recommendation of the board of directors nor to encourage anyone else to vote against any resolutions put before the shareholders by or upon the recommendation of the board of directors, (c) that it would not, without the consent of the board of directors of Liberty Silver, commence or participate in a take-over bid, solicit proxies, or seek to influence management or the board of directors. The Standstill Agreement also provides that BGCG may not sell any of its common shares of Liberty Silver without the consent of Reid provided that, starting on May 1, 2020, BCGC and its associates and affiliates may on notice to Reid sell up to 500,000 common shares of the Liberty Silver in any calendar year.

Prior to acquiring such voting rights and the option, Reid (a) owned 887,912 common shares of the Issuer representing approximately 3.58% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Liberty Silver and (b) held options on 500,000 common shares, representing approximately 21.8% of the outstanding options under Liberty Silver's stock option plan.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
