PUREBASE CORPORATION (OTCMKTS:PUBC) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On September 5, 2019, PureBase Corporation, a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), executed a Debt Exchange Agreement (“Debt Exchange Agreement”) with US Mine Corp., an affiliate of the Company (“USMC”), to which an aggregate of $5,442,362.86 of debt, including accrued and unpaid interest, was converted to an aggregate 60,248,484 shares of the Company’s common stock of the Company. The debt represented loans made by USMC to the Company, all of which were terminated as a result of the conversion to shares. The per share conversion price of $0.09 was negotiated in an arm’s-length transaction with USMC, and the Company’s board of directors determined that, since there is a limited market to its shares, such price represents the fair market value of the stock.
The Company utilizes the services of its affiliate, USMC, for exploration services and other services. As of December 31, 2018, all Company purchases, including all minerals utilized by the Company, where made from USMC. A. Scott Dockter, the principal executive officer and a director of the Company, and John Bremer, a director of the Company, are also officers, directors and shareholders of USMC.
The foregoing description of the Debt Exchange Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K (“Report”) as Exhibit 10.1, which is incorporated herein in its entirety by reference.
The information contained below in Item 3.02 is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.
Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
The information contained above in Item 1.01 is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02.
The issuance and sale of the common stock by the Company to USMC under the Debt Exchange Agreement was made without registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), or the securities laws of the applicable state, in reliance on the exemptions provided by Section 4(2) of the Act and Regulation D promulgated thereunder, and in reliance on similar exemptions under applicable state law, based on the offering of such securities to one investor, an affiliate of the Company, the lack of any general solicitation or advertising in connection with such issuance and the representation of such investor to the Company that it was an accredited investor (as that term is defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D).

On September 10, 2019, the Company issued a press release with respect to the conversion of $5,442,362.86 of debt, including accrued and unpaid interest, into an aggregate 60,248,484 shares of common stock.
