    1. a 0.125% NSR Royalty on the Purchaser Option Claims;
    2. the right to purchase, with or without the Corporation, one half of the 2.5% NSR Royalty retained by the optionors under the Option Agreement (the "Royalty Purchase"), being a 1.25% NSR Royalty on the Purchaser Option Claims or any other properties that may be included as part of the Purchaser Option Claims (the "Purchased Royalty"); pursuant to the Option Agreement, the Royalty Purchase will be made in exchange for a cash payment of $1.25 million to the optionors (the "Cash Payment"), which, if effected by the Corporation and the Vendor, will be payable as follows: 50% by the Vendor and 50% by the Corporation. Upon completion of the Royalty Purchase, the Vendor will be entitled to 50% of the Purchased Royalty, being a 0.625% NSR Royalty, and the Corporation will be entitled to, and shall extinguish, the other 50% of the Purchased Royalty, being a 0.625% NSR Royalty; and
