Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement
On January 28, 2013, the Registrant and Tangiers Investors, LP ("Tangiers", or “the Lender”) executed an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”, or the “Equity Line”) with Tangiers dated October 7, 2009 and subsequently deemed effective on January 24, 2011. The Amendment increases the aggregate commitment amount from $5 million to $10 million, extends the term of the commitment from 36 to 60 months, and raises both the minimum and maximum amounts that can be received from each Advance Notice (the “Advance Notice”).
The Agreement, as amended, provides the Registrant with the right, but not the obligation, to draw down on the Equity Line by selling to Tangiers shares of the Registrant’s common stock for a total aggregate purchase price of up to $10 Million over a five year period from the Effective Date of January 24, 2011.
The dollar amount of each Advance is based upon the average daily trading volume in dollar amount during the ten (10) trading days preceding the Advance Note date (the “Base Amount”). Tangiers shall have the option to decline any Advance Notice that exceeds 300% of the Base Amount. Notwithstanding the foregoing no Advance will be made in an amount lower than the Minimum Advance Amount of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000) or higher than the Maximum Advance Amount of Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000).
Upon receipt from the Registrant of a duly signed Advance Notice, Tangiers will pay the Registrant 90% of the lowest volume weighted average price of the Registrant's common stock during the 5 day pricing period following each Advance Notice as quoted by Bloomberg, LP on the OTCBB/OTCQB (the “Market Price”). The Amendment also provides that any Advance Notice that exceeds the Base Amount by up to 200% will be further discounted by 7.5% (or 82.5% of the Market Price), and any Advance Notice in excess of 200% of the Base Amount will be further discounted by an additional 7.5% (or 75% of the Market Price).
All other terms of the Agreement remain in effect.
The above described Amendment is attached hereto and incorporated by reference as Exhibit 10.2.
