About the Helium Projects
The Helium Project consists of a lease of two parcels of land consisting of 2,749 acres, located in County of Petroleum, State of Montana.
The lease is for an original period of five years and, upon the discovery of helium, oil or gas, may be extended by an additional thirty (30) years. The lease is also subject to a royalty on 4.25% of the gross proceeds of the sale of helium and 12.5% on the sale of products produced from the lease.
Terms of the Joint Venture
Under the terms of the Joint Venture Agreement, the Company will acquire a 90% interest in the Helium Project and Terrelium will provide technical services for the exploration, development and, if applicable, production of the Helium Project. In consideration of the 90% interest and the technical services provided by Terrelium, the Company has agreed to issue to Terrelium a total of 4,900,000 common shares of the Company on the date of TSX Venture Exchange approval.
The Company will also be responsible for providing initial funding for the joint venture of $50,000 per month over a six month period for a total of $300,000. Provided that Terrelium provides its technical services and the Company agrees to any further expenditures, the Company will also fund any subsequent operations of the joint venture.
As the Company will hold a 90% interest in the Helium Project, the Company retains the sole right to terminate the Joint Venture Agreement.
The securities to be issued to Terrelium under the Joint Venture Agreement will be subject to a four month hold.
