Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On February 14, 2020, the Company entered into a Real Estate Purchase and Sale Agreement with Craig Ward (the "Ward Purchase Agreement") to purchase 368 acres of real property located in Shoshone County, including the patented mining claims, with both surface and mineral rights, commonly known as the Ward Land-East (the "Ward Land").  The purchase price for the Ward Land was $750,000 and the closing date of the Ward Land purchase was February 18, 2020.

On February 18, 2020 (the "Closing Date") the Company also entered into Convertible Note Purchase Agreements with and issued Convertible Promissory Notes (the "Convertible Notes") with an aggregate principal amount of $885,000, to nine accredited investors.  

The Convertible Notes mature thirty-six months following the Closing Date (the "Maturity Date") and bear interest at a rate equal to eight percent per annum simple interest.  The Company is obligated to make monthly interest-only payments and all unpaid principal and interest is due and payable on the Maturity Date.  The Convertible Notes may be prepaid by the Company, in whole or in part, without the written consent of the investors.  Failure to make timely payments or observe applicable Company covenants, and voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings would constitute an event of default under the Convertible Notes and entitle the investors to declare all unpaid principal and interest payments to be immediately due and payable.  The Convertible Notes are secured by a single real estate mortgage encumbering the Ward Land and other unencumbered real property currently owned by the Company located in Shoshone County, Idaho and commonly known as the Potosi property.  At the election of the investors or upon the occurence of a Corporate Event, as defined in the Convertible Notes, the Convertible Notes are convertible into common stock of the Company at a conversion price of eighteen cents ($0.18) per share.

The foregoing descriptions of the Ward Purchase Agreement, Convertible Note Purchase Agreement and Convertible Note do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the complete copies of the documents attached hereto as exhibits.  

Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

The Convertible Notes described in Item 1.01 are debt obligations of the Company arising other than in the ordinary course of business, which constitute direct financial obligations of the Company.  Please see the description of the material terms of the Convertible Notes in Item 1.01, which is incorporated herein by reference. 

Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities

The Company entered into the Convertible Note Purchase Agreements and Convertible Notes in the aggregate amount of $885,000 as described above under Item 1.01, which is incorporated by reference.  The Convertible Notes were issued in reliance on an exemption from registration pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 30-14-202 of the Idaho Uniform Securities Act of 2004.
