The Pre-emptive Notice will contain a description of the terms and conditions relating to the Distributed Securities and will, to the extent known, state the Issue Price at which the Distributed Securities will be distributed and the date on which the issuance of Distributed Securities is to be completed.

|4.2||Manner of Exercise of Right to Convert or Purchase|
|(a)||The Holder may, at any time commencing following the Issue Date and at any time on or prior to 5:00 p.m. (Vancouver time) on the Business Day immediately preceding the Maturity Date, convert the outstanding Principal Amount of the Debenture on the Conversion Date, in whole or in part, provided that no conversion shall be for less than the Minimum Threshold Amount, into Series 1 Shares (unless converted into Common Shares at the discretion of the Company under certain circumstances) at the Conversion Price, by delivering to the Company, the conversion form attached hereto as Schedule B executed by the Holder or the Holder’s attorney duly appointed by an instrument in writing, exercising the Holder’s right to convert the Debenture in accordance with the provisions of this Article 4. Thereupon, the Holder or, subject to payment of all applicable stamp or security transfer taxes or other governmental charges, the Holder’s nominee(s) or assignee(s) shall be entitled to be entered in the books of the Company as at the Conversion Date (or such later date as is specified in Section 4.2(b) as the holder of the number of Series 1 Shares into which the Debenture is convertible in accordance with the conversion form then received by the Company and the provisions of this Article 4 and, as soon as practicable thereafter, the Company shall deliver to the Holder and/or, subject as aforesaid, the Holder’s nominee(s) or assignee(s), a certificate or certificates for such Series 1 Shares affixed with all required legends;|
|(b)||For the purposes of this Article 4, the Debenture shall be deemed to be converted on the Conversion Date on which the conversion form under Section 4.2(a) is actually received by the Company, provided that if such conversion form or notice is received on a day on which the register of Series 1 Shares is closed, the person or persons entitled to receive Series 1 Shares shall become the holder or holders of record of such Series 1 Shares as at the date on which such register is next reopened;|
|(c)||Any part of the Principal Amount of the Debenture may be converted as provided in Section 4.2(a) and if this Debenture is tendered for partial conversion, the Debenture shall be cancelled as to the Principal Amount thereunder that is being converted and the Debenture shall be deemed to be in the amount of the remaining Principal Amount; and|
|(d)||The Holder shall be entitled in respect of Series 1 Shares issued upon conversion of the Debenture to dividends declared in favour of holders of Common Shares of record on and after the Conversion Date or such later date as the Holder shall become the holder of record of such Series 1 Shares pursuant to Section 4.2(b), from which applicable date any Series 1 Shares so issued to the Holder shall for all purposes be and be deemed to be outstanding as fully paid and non-assessable.|
|4.3||Adjustment of Conversion Price When Converting into Common Shares|
The Conversion Price into Common Shares in effect at any date shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as follows:
|(a)||If and whenever at any time prior to the close of business of the Company up to and including the Maturity Date, (referred to in this Section 4.3 as the “Time of Expiry”), the Company shall:|
|(i)||subdivide, redivide or change its Common Shares into a greater number of shares;|
|(ii)||consolidate, reduce or combine its Common Shares into a lesser number of shares; or|
|(iii)||issue Common Shares to all or substantially all of the holders of its Common Shares by way of a stock dividend or other distribution on such Common Shares payable in Common Shares (other than dividends paid in the ordinary course),|
(any such event being hereinafter referred to as a “Capital Reorganization”), the Conversion Price shall be adjusted by multiplying the Conversion Price in effect on the effective date of such event referred to in Section 4.3(a)(i) or Section 4.3(a)(ii) or on the record date of such stock dividend referred to in Section 4.3(a)(iii), as the case may be, by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the number of Common Shares outstanding before giving effect to such Capital Reorganization and the denominator of which shall be the number of Common Shares outstanding after giving effect to such Capital Reorganization. Such adjustment shall be made successively whenever any Capital Reorganization shall occur and any such issue of Common Shares by way of a stock dividend or other such distribution shall be deemed to have been made on the record date thereof for the purpose of calculating the number of outstanding Common Shares under Sections 4.3(a)(i) and 4.3(a)(ii);
|(b)||If and whenever at any time prior to the Time of Expiry, the Company shall fix a record date for the distribution to all or substantially all the holders of its Common Shares of:|
|(i)||shares of any class whether of the Company or any other corporation (excluding dividends paid in the ordinary course);|
|(ii)||rights or options;|
|(iii)||evidences of indebtedness; or|
|(iv)||other assets or property (excluding dividends paid in the ordinary course),|
and if such distribution does not constitute a Capital Reorganization or does not consist of rights or options entitling the holders, for a period expiring not more than forty-five (45) days after such record date, to subscribe for or purchase Common Shares at a price per share or having a conversion or exchange price per share of at least 95% of the Current Market Price per Common Share on such record date (any such non-excluded event being hereinafter referred to as a “Special Distribution”), the Conversion Price shall be adjusted immediately after such record date so that it shall equal the price determined by multiplying the Conversion Price in effect on such record date by a fraction, of which the numerator shall be the total number of Common Shares outstanding on such record date multiplied by the Current Market Price per Common Share determined on such record date, less the excess of the fair market value (as determined by the board of directors of the Company, which determination shall be conclusive and subject to TSX acceptance) of such Special Distribution over the fair market value (as determined by the board of directors of the Company, which determination shall be conclusive and subject to TSX acceptance) of the consideration therefor, if any, received by the Company and of which the denominator shall be the total number of Common Shares outstanding on such record date multiplied by such Current Market Price per Common Share. Any Common Shares owned by or held for the account of the Company shall be deemed not to be outstanding for the purposes of any such computation. Such adjustment shall be made successively whenever such a record date is fixed. The extent that such Special Distribution is not so made or to the extent any such rights, options are not exercised prior to the expiration thereof, the Conversion Price shall then be readjusted to the Conversion Price which would then be in effect if such record date had not been fixed or if such expired rights or options had not been issued;
|(c)||For the purpose of any computation under Section 4.3(b), the “Current Market Price” per Common Share at any date shall be the Market Price per share of such Common Shares on the TSX ending three Business Days immediately preceding such date, or, if the Common Shares are not listed on the TSX, any other exchange on which the Common Shares are listed or, if the Common Shares are not listed on any exchange, on any over-the-counter market on which the Common Shares are quoted;|
|(d)||If and whenever at any time prior to the Time of Expiry, there is a reclassification or change of Common Shares into other shares or there is a consolidation, merger, reorganization or amalgamation of the Company with or into another corporation or entity that results in any reclassification of Common Shares or a change of Common Shares into other shares or there is a transfer of the undertaking or assets of the Company as an entirety or substantially as an entirety to another person (any such event being hereinafter referred to as a “Reclassification of Common Shares”), the Holder shall be entitled to receive and shall accept, upon the exercise of the Holder’s right of conversion at any time after the effective date thereof, in lieu of the number of Common Shares to which the Holder was theretofore entitled on conversion, the kind and amount of shares or other securities or money or other property that the Holder would have been entitled to receive as a result of such Reclassification of Common Shares, if, on the effective date thereof, the Holder had been the registered holder of the number of such Common Shares to which the Holder was theretofore entitled upon conversion, subject to adjustment thereafter in accordance with provisions the same, as nearly as may be possible, as those contained in this Section 4.3;|
|(e)||In any case in which this Section 4.3 shall require that an adjustment become effective immediately after a record date or agreement date for an event referred to herein, the Company may defer, until the occurrence of such event, issuing or transferring to the Holder who converts on a Conversion Date after such record date or agreement date and before the occurrence of such event the additional Common Shares issuable upon conversion by reason of the adjustment of the Conversion Price required by such event before giving effect to such adjustment; provided, however, that the Company shall deliver to the Holder an appropriate instrument evidencing the Holder's right to receive such additional Common Shares upon the occurrence of the event requiring such adjustment and the right to receive any distributions made on such additional Common Shares on and after the Conversion Date or such later date as the Holder would, but for the provisions of this Section 4.3(e), have become the holder of record of such additional Common Shares pursuant to Section 4.3(b);|
|(f)||In case the Company after the date hereof shall take any action affecting its Common Shares, other than any action described in this Section 4.3, which in the opinion of the Holder, acting reasonably, would materially affect the conversion rights of the Holder, the Conversion Price shall be adjusted in such manner, at such time and by such action by the board of directors of the Company, as they may determine, acting reasonably, to be equitable to the Holder and the Company in the circumstances, but subject in all cases to any necessary regulatory approval;|
|(g)||The adjustments provided for in this Section 4.3 are cumulative and shall apply to successive subdivisions, redivisions, reductions, combinations, consolidations, distributions, issues or other events resulting in any adjustment under the provisions of this Section, provided that, notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, no adjustment shall be made which would result in any increase in the Conversion Price (except upon a consolidation, reduction or combination of outstanding Common Shares) and no adjustment of the Conversion Price shall be required unless such adjustment would require a decrease of at least 1% in the Conversion Price then in effect; provided, however, that any adjustments which by reason of this subsection (h) are not required to be made shall be carried forward and taken into account in any subsequent adjustment;|
|(h)||In the event of any dispute arising with respect to the adjustments provided in this Section 4.3, such question shall be conclusively determined by a firm of chartered professional accountants appointed by the Company (who may be auditors of the Company) and acceptable to the Holder. Such accountants shall have access to all necessary records of the Company and such determination shall be binding upon the Company and the Holder;|
|(i)||Notwithstanding any other provision herein contained, no adjustment to the Conversion Price shall be made in respect of any event described in this Section 4.3, if the Holder is entitled, without converting the Debenture, to participate in such event, subject to TSX acceptance, on the same terms mutatis mutandis as if the Holder had converted the Debenture into Common Shares prior to or on the effective date or record date of such event; and|
|(j)||If any Series 1 Shares or Common Shares to be issued upon the conversion of the Debenture hereunder require any filing or registration with or approval of any Official Body in Canada or the United States or compliance with any other requirement under any law of Canada or the United States or province or state thereof before such shares may be validly issued upon such conversion or traded by the person to whom they are issued pursuant to such conversion, the Company will take all reasonable action as may be necessary to secure such filing, registration, approval or compliance as the case may be.|
|4.4||Adjustment of Conversion Price When Converting into Series 1 Shares|
The Conversion Price into Series 1 Shares in effect at any date shall be subject to adjustment from time to time in accordance with Section 4.3 as if the Series 1 Shares were Common Shares for the purposes of all calculations undertaken under Section 4.3 to affect the relevant adjustment.
|4.5||No Requirement to Issue Fractional Shares|
The Company shall not be required to issue fractional Common Shares or Series 1 Shares, as applicable, upon the conversion of the Debenture pursuant to this Article 4 or at the discretion of the Company.
|4.6||Certificate as to Adjustment|
The Company shall from time to time forthwith after the occurrence of any event which requires adjustment or readjustment as provided in Section 4.3, deliver to the Holder at the Holder’s address set forth on the final page hereof, an officer's certificate specifying the nature of the event requiring the same and the amount of the adjustment necessitated thereby and setting forth in reasonable detail the method of calculation and the facts upon which such calculation are based.
|4.7||Limits on Conversion|
|(a)||Subject to Section 4.7(b), at any given time during the term of this Debenture until the Maturity Date, the Holder may only convert such amount of the Principal Amount that, upon issuance of the Common Shares or Series 1 Shares issuable upon conversion thereof, together with any other Common Shares and securities convertible or exercisable into Common Shares, including the Series 1 Preferred Shares, calculated on an “as if converted” and “as if exercised basis”, that are beneficially owned or controlled or directed by the Holder, will result in the Holder owning, or having control or direction over, less than 10% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares. For greater clarity, the Holder may not convert any portion of the Principal Amount if the Common Shares or Series 1 Shares issued upon the conversion thereof together with any other securities beneficially owned or controlled or directed by the Holder will result in the Holder owning or having control or direction over or being deemed to own or have control or direction over 10% or more of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Shares such that the Holder will become a reporting insider under Applicable Securities Laws by virtue of such conversion.|
|(b)||Section 4.6(a) shall not apply to the Holder provided that the Holder gives no less than sixty-one (61) days notice to the Company.|
Provided there is no Event of Default as contemplated herein, if at any time after June 30, 2022 until the Maturity Date, the Company raises gross proceeds of US$30,000,000 from the sale of equity securities or securities convertible into equity securities (the “Forced Conversion Trigger”), the Company may upon not less than five (5) Business Days’ and not more than twenty (20) Business Days’ prior written notice to the Holder (the “Forced Conversion Notice”), require the conversion of all or part of the Principal Amount into Common Shares at the Conversion Price (the “Forced Conversion Shares”). Any accrued and unpaid interest in respect of such converted Principal Amount will be paid in cash. The Company shall issue and deliver to the Holder a share certificate representing the Forced Conversion Shares and cash representing accrued interest within five (5) Business Days of the date of conversion specified in any Forced Conversion Notice, which conversion date shall be no later than five (5) Business Days after the closing date of the applicable financing.
EVENTS OF DEFAULT
The occurrence of any one or more of the following events (“Events of Default”) will constitute a default hereunder (whether any such event is voluntary or involuntary or is effected by operation of law or pursuant to or in compliance with any judgment, decree or order of any court of any order, rule or regulation of any administrative or governmental body):
|(a)||Non-Compliance. The Company fails to observe or perform one or more covenants, agreements, conditions or obligations in favour of the Holder, including a failure to pay any or all of the Principal Amount, interest and other monies due under the Debenture when due, and such failure continues unremedied for a period of fifteen (15) days after the Holder gives notice thereof to the Company;|
|(b)||Ceasing to Carry on Business. The Company ceases or threatens to cease to carry on business;|
|(c)||Bankruptcy or Insolvency. The Company becomes insolvent or makes a voluntary assignment or proposal in bankruptcy or otherwise acknowledges its insolvency, or a bankruptcy petition is filed or presented against the Company, or the Company commits or threatens to commit an act of bankruptcy;|
|(d)||Receivership. A Receiver of the Company or its subsidiary is appointed under any statute or pursuant to any document issued by the Company;|

Any proceedings with respect the Company are commenced under the compromise or arrangement provisions of the corporation statute pursuant to which the Company is governed, or the Company enter into an arrangement or compromise with any or all of their respective creditors pursuant to such provisions or otherwise;|
|(f)||Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act. Any proceedings with respect to the Company are commenced in any jurisdiction under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada) or any similar legislation; or|
|(g)||Liquidation. An order is made, a resolution is passed, or a petition is filed, for the liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Company.|
RIGHTS, REMEDIES AND POWERS
If any Event of Default shall occur, the Holder may provide the Company with notice of such Event of Default (the “Default Notice”). Upon receipt of such notice, the Company shall have the option to cure such Event of Default within thirty (30) days (the “Cure Period”). If the Event of Default has not been cured by the Company to the reasonable satisfaction of the Holder during the Cure Period, the Holder shall be entitled to exercise any and all of its rights pursuant to this Debenture, including declaring the Principal Amount of the Debenture and interest then outstanding on such date and all other amounts outstanding to be due and payable forthwith.
The Holder in its absolute discretion may at any time and from time to time by written notice waive any breach by the Company of any of its covenants or agreements herein. No failure or delay on the part of the Holder to exercise any right, remedy or power given herein or by any other existing or future agreement or now or hereafter existing by statute, at law or in equity will operate as a waiver thereof, nor will any single or partial exercise of any such right, remedy or power preclude any other exercise thereof or the exercise of any other such right, remedy or power, nor will any waiver by the Holder be deemed to be a waiver of any subsequent, similar or other event.
If the Company is obliged to withhold any payment hereunder on account of present or future taxes, duties, assessments or other governmental charges required by law, the Company shall make such withholding or deduction and pay the balance owing to the Holder.
|7.2||Amendment and Waiver|

If any provision of this Debenture shall be deemed by any court of competent jurisdiction or held to be invalid or void or unenforceable in whole or in part in any jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability without in any manner affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other jurisdiction or the remaining provisions hereof in any jurisdiction.
