Immediately after completion of the pre-feasibility study, the parties shall enter into a joint venture agreement to continue advancing the project towards commercial production.
In addition, Romios Gold shall grant a right of first refusal to Honey Badger Silver on its 20% remaining interest, post-transaction.
