  4. a further 1,500,000 shares on or before the third anniversary of the Acceptance Date; and
  5. a further 2,500,000 shares on or before the fourth anniversary of the Acceptance Date.

The Agreement also requires that Lateral shall provide NI 43-101 compliant Resource Estimates on or before both the 3rd and 4th anniversary dates and a Preliminary Economic Assessment by the 5th anniversary date, at which time the 70% Interest will have been earned.
