Concurrently with closing of the Loans, the Company will grant a security interest in all of its assets to Hunter Dickinson Services Inc. ("HDSI") to secure payment of present and future trade payables owing by the Company under its existing agreement with HDSI for the provision of technical, geological, corporate communications, administrative and management services. In exchange for such grant of security interest, HDSI will (i) agree to not to demand payment of a current trade payable of $2,115,138 prior to January 31, 2016, and (ii) continue providing services to the Company, notwithstanding non-payment of such current trade payable.
