(“PM&G” and together with Timberline, the “JV Partners”) whereby the JV Partners formed a limited liability company to conduct operations on the Company’s Lookout Mountain Project in Nevada (the “Project”) to a limited liability company agreement (the “Agreement”) . to the Agreement, PM&G can earn an initial 51% interest in the project, which is located on the southern end of the Battle Mountain-Eureka Trend, by expending US$6 million on exploration and development over a 2-year period, as further described below.  

 

In connection with the Agreement and subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, further to Timberline’s February 8, 2019 news release announcing a US$500,000 non-brokered private placement of Timberline units at a price of US$0.08 per unit (the “Offering”), PM&G has subscribed for a 4.99% ownership position in the Company under the Offering. to additional Offering subscriptions received, the Company expects to close the Offering on a fully subscribed basis immediately following TSX Venture Exchange approval of the Offering and Agreement.

 

Lookout Mountain Joint Venture Agreement

 

Under the Agreement, PM&G will initially fund exploration and development activities in two stages.  Timberline will contribute the claims that constitute the Lookout Mountain project and adjacent historical Oswego Mine area (the “Project”) to the joint venture.  Timberline will manage the joint venture at least through the initial US$6 million Stage I investment.  PM&G has the right to manage the Stage II activities.  

 

Stage I: Earn 51%:  PM&G can earn an initial 51% interest by expending US$6 million on certain exploration expenses over a 2-year period. Work will focus on the near-surface oxide and deeper high-grade gold mineralization to identify near term production potential, which the Company proposes to use to develop an updated gold resource estimate prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101.  This exploration will also test for expansion of gold mineralization outside the existing defined resource.  

 

Stage II:  After completion of Stage I, Timberline may elect to participate at 49% on a pro rata basis. If Timberline elects not to fund Stage II exploration, PM&G can elect to earn a 70% interest in the Project by funding completion of a feasibility study prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 within 3 years, and Timberline can exercise this option if PM&G elects not to. If neither party elects to exercise the 70% option, subsequent expenditures would be on a pro rata basis unless either party exercises the options described below.

 

Options:  

 

Following completion of its initial (Stage I) US$6M contribution in years 1 and 2, PM&G may elect not to proceed with its Stage II obligations, and instead may elect to relinquish its interest in the joint venture in exchange for (i) a 10% net profit interest or (ii) a 2% net smelter royalty.

 

Following completion of PM&G’s Stage II contributions, Timberline may elect to relinquish its interest in the joint venture in exchange for (i) a 10% net profit interest or (ii) a 2% net smelter royalty.

 

Mutual Right of First Refusal (“ROFR”): The Agreement includes a standard mutual ROFR to which either JV Partner will have the right to acquire the other partner’s interest before that interest may be conveyed to a third party on terms no less favorable to the purchasing JV Partner than those proposed to the third party.  

The completion of the joint venture as contemplated under the Agreement is subject to certain conditions, including receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals.
