Mineral lease, description       The primary term of the TMC Mineral Lease was from July 1, 2013 to July 1, 2018. During the primary term, the Company was required to meet certain requirements for oil production. After July 1, 2018, the TMC Mineral Lease would remain in effect as long as certain requirements for oil production continue to be met by the Company. If the Company failed to meet these requirements, the Lease would automatically terminate 90 days after the calendar year in which the requirements were not met. In addition, the Company was required to make certain advance royalty payments to the lessor (Note 7(a)). The TMC Mineral Lease was subject to a 10% royalty for the first three years and varying percentages thereafter based on the price of oil. An additional 1.6% royalty is payable to the previous lessees of the TMC Mineral Lease. The TMC Mineral Lease also required the Company to make minimum expenditures on the property of $1,000,000 for the first three years, increasing to $2,000,000 for the next three years.
Properties lease agreement, description       (i)Termination will be automatic if TMC fails to obtain (a) by December 31, 2019, a written financial commitment to fund a second processing facility (or a facility expansion) that will increase the Company’s processing capacity by an additional 1,000 barrels per day (achieving an aggregate capacity of 2,000 barrels per day), and (b) by December 31, 2021, a written financial commitment to fund a third processing facility (or facility expansion) that will increase the Company’s processing capacity by an additional 1,000 barrels per day (achieving an aggregate capacity of 3,000 barrels per day). The Company expects that the cost of constructing each of the two additional processing facilities (or any expansion) will range between $10 million and $12 million, which the Company intends to fund from revenue derived from operations or from third party funding sources. (ii)Cessation of operations or inadequate production due to increased operating costs or decreased marketability and if production is not restored to 80% of capacity within three months of any such cessation will cause a termination. (iii)Cessation of operations for longer than 180 days during any lease year or 600 days in any three consecutive years will cause a termination. (iv)From and after July 1, 2023, a failure of PQE’s processing facility to produce a minimum of 80% of a rated capacity of 3,000 barrels per day during a period of at least 180 calendar days during any lease year, the Lease may be terminated by the lessor. (v)TMC may surrender the lease with 30 days written notice. (vi)In the event of a breach of the material terms of the lease, the lessor will inform TMC in writing and TMC will have 30 days to cure any monetary breach and 150 days to cure any non-monetary breach.

Mineral lease, description     The SITLA Leases have a primary term of ten (10) years, and will remain in effect thereafter for as long as (a) bituminous sands are produced in paying quantities, or (b) POSR is otherwise engaged in diligent operations, exploration or development activity and certain other conditions are satisfied. Generally, the term of the SITLA Leases may not be extended beyond the twentieth year of their effective dates except by production in paying quantities. An annual minimum royalty of $10 per acre must be paid during the first ten years of the SITLA Leases; from and after the 11th year of the leases, the annual minimum royalty may be adjusted by the lessor based on certain “readjustment” provisions in the SITLA Leases. Annual minimum royalties paid in any lease year may be credited against production royalties accruing in the same year. The SITLA Leases provide that POSR must pay: (i) an annual rent equal to the greater of $1 per acre or a fixed sum of $500 (without regard to acreage); and (ii) a production royalty of 8% of the market price received for products produced from the leases at the point of first sale, less reasonable actual costs of transportation to the point of first sale. After the tenth year of the leases, the lessor may increase the royalty rate by as much as one percent (1%) per year up to a maximum of 12.5%, subject to a proviso that production royalties under the leases shall never be less than $3.00/bbl during the term of the leases). As the sole lessee under the SITLA Leases, POSR owns 100% of the working interests under the leases, subject to payment of annual rentals, advance annual minimum royalties, and production royalties.

Mineral lease, description   TMC acquired an undivided 50% of the operating rights and interests relating to oil sands under certain U.S. federal oil and gas leases encompassing approximately 8,480 gross acres (4,240 net acres, less royalty) located in P.R. Springs and the Tar Sands Triangle regions in the State of Utah (the “BLM Leases”), consisting of the right to explore for and produce oil from oil sands formations and deposits from the surface down to a subsurface depth of 1,000 feet, for gross proceeds of $10,800,000 of which $1,800,000 was paid in cash and the remaining $9,000,000 was settled by the issue of 15,000,000 common shares at $0.40 per share. The operating rights assigned and transferred to TMC under certain of the BLM Leases also grant to TMC the right, subject to similar depth limitation, to explore for and produce oil and gas from conventional sources. Each of the BLM Leases includes lands that are located within a “Special Tar Sands Area” or “STSA”, a geographic area that has been designated by the (U.S.) Department of Interior as containing substantial deposits of oil sands. Under the BLM Leases, production royalties are governed by BLM regulations and are payable to the U.S. Department of Interior at the rate of 12.5% of the amount or value of the production removed and sold. The interests acquired by TMC under the BLM Leases are also subject to a 6.25% overriding royalty reserved by predecessors-in-title.
