ROYALTY BUYBACK PROVISIONS

The prospector has the right to buy back all the royalty except 0.5% by repaying the funding according to the following conditions:

  • From year 1 to year 5 after funding – Repayment of the funding times 1.5.
    • Example:  If only year one is funded, the prospector may buy back 0.5% NSR for repayment of $40,000 x 1.5 = $60,000
    • Example:  If all three years are funded, the prospector may buy back 1.5% NSR for repayment of $180,000 x 1.5 = $270,000
  • From year 6 to year 10 after funding – Repayment of the funding times 2.0
    • Example:  If year one and two funding are advanced, buy back 1% NSR for repayment of $100,000 x 2.0 = $200,000
