- Repay the balance of the outstanding principal of US$1,532,000 by September 30, 2023.
- Upon satisfaction of a. through c. above the debt would be considered fully paid.
Furthermore, providing payments are made as scheduled:
- The purchaser has agreed to forbear from enforcing its security, and
- Accumulated interest of more than US$870,000 would effectively be forgiven.

This binding LOI markedly improves our financial situation, and is a crucial first step in our efforts to move the project forward. We are grateful to have a customer that supports our objective of being a long term reliable domestic source of graphite for North America.”
As of the Company’s most recent quarter end, the value of the unsatisfied commitment stood at US$1,532,000 (the “Principal”) plus accrued interest of no less than US$867,918.
