Attention: Stephen Harpur, Chief Executive Officer


Dear Sirs,


Re:Purchase of the Thompson Project Option Interest of Progressive Planet Solutions Inc.


This agreement is further to our discussions with Progressive Planet Solutions Inc. (the “Vendor”) regarding the acquisition (the “Transaction”) of its 20% earned interest in the Thompson Brothers Lithium Property located in Wekusko Lake, Manitoba, Canada (the “Purchased Interest”), comprised of various mining claims set forth on Schedule “A” (the “Thompson Project” ) by Snow Lake Resources Limited (“Snow Lake”).


Upon execution, this agreement will form a binding obligation of the parties to complete the Transaction on the terms set forth herein. Forthwith following execution of this agreement the parties will prepare the definitive documentation (the “Transaction Agreements”) required to complete the Transaction. Such definitive Transaction Agreements shall contain terms and provisions typical for a transaction of this nature including, without limitation, representations and warranties with respect to corporate authority, enforceability, unencumbered ownership, no knowledge of any environmental damage and no approvals being required for transfer of the Purchased Interest. To the extent that the parties are not able to agree upon the definitive Transaction Agreements this agreement shall govern.


I. Background


Snow Lake understands that the Vendor has earned a 20% interest in the Thompson Project from Strider Resources Limited (“Strider”). The Thompson Project has a JORC compliant resource of approximately 6.3 Million tonnes at 1.3 Li with the mineralization associated with two steeply dipping pegmatite veins. Mineralization at the Thompson Project remains open at depth and along strike.





2. Purchase Price


The total consideration to be paid by Snow Lake for the Purchased Interest shall be $3,325,000 through a cash payment of $325,000 and the issuance of 12,000,000 common shares in the capital of Snow Lake share (the “Snow Lake Shares’’), to be issued at a deemed price of $0.25 per common, subject to escrow provisions outlined below (the “Purchase Price”). The Vendor agrees that it will direct that 1,500,000 of the Snow Lake Shares forming part of the Purchase Price will be issued to Strider. Snow Lake shall qualify the Snow Lake Shares under the prospectus to be filed by it with respect to its anticipated initial public offering (“IPO”) prospectus. The Purchase Price will be payable to the Vendor on the closing of the Transaction.


The Vendor acknowledges and agrees that the Snow Lake Shares, when issued, will be subject to a contractual escrow pursuant to which 100,000 shares will be released from the contractual escrow each month (with the right to sell no more than 15,000 per day) for the first 15 months following issuance and thereafter no shares will be released until 24 months following the commencement of trading of Snow Lake Shares on a recognized stock exchange, at which time the remaining shares shall be released from the contractual escrow. Alternatively, Snow Lake and/or its financial advisor will assist the Vendor in disposing of up to 1,500,000 shares through a private transaction. In the event that Snow Lake does not raise at least $3 million pursuant to its proposed flow-through financing, there will be no early release of Snow Lake Shares from the contractual escrow prior to the 24 month anniversary of the commencement of the listing of the Snow Lake Shares on a recognized stock exchange. The contractual escrow will begin at commencement of the listing of the Snow Lake Shares. Prior thereto, the Vendor will not be subject to any restrictions regarding the sale of its 10,500,000 Snow Lake Shares, other than those set forth in applicable securities laws. However any potential sale of these shares prior to the IPO will not release the buyer from PLAN contractual escrow obligations outlined above. Snow Lake hereby confirms that the common shares in the capital of Snow Lake to be held by Nova will be subject to similar restriction on transfer as those set forth above to apply to the Snow Lake Shares to be issued pursuant to the terms of this agreement. In the event that the IPO is not completed by September 30, 2019, then the Snow Lake Shares shall be released from contractual escrow.


Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Snow Lake Shares shall be released from the contractual escrow until Strider transfers the Thompson Project to the applicable option holders. In addition, the Snow Lake Shares will be subject to escrow provisions pursuant to applicable securities law and policies of either the TSX Venture Exchange or Canadian Securities Exchange (in either case, the “Exchange”) and the certificates representing the Snow Lake Shares shall bear such legends as are required under applicable securities law or under applicable policies of the Exchange.


Subject to compliance with applicable securities laws and the rules of the Exchange, Snow Lake will permit the Vendor to distribute up to 6,000,000 of the Snow Lake Shares to its shareholders pursuant to a dividend or other mechanism permitted by applicable law, provided that the Snow Lake Shares so distributed contain a legend restricting their sale until the 24 month anniversary of commencement of trading on a recognized stock exchange in lieu of the contractual escrow otherwise agreed to by the Vendor.





2A. Mine


Snow Lake acknowledges and agrees that, in the event that a lithium mine is developed by it or on its behalf on the Purchased Interest, such mine shall be named the “Thompson Bros. Mine”.


3. Conditions Precedent


The conditions precedent in favour of Snow Lake to be included in the Transaction Agreements (which conditions may be waived in the sole discretion of Snow Lake) will include, without limitation, the following:

(b)the representations and warranties of the Vendor contained in the agreements shall be true and correct in all material respects at the time or closing with the same force and effect as if such representations and warranties were made at and as of such time, and a certificate of an officer or the Vendor, dated the closing date, to that effect shall have been delivered to Snow Lake;


(c)no legal or regulatory action or proceeding shall be pending or threatened by any person to enjoin, restrict or prohibit the purchase and sale of the Purchased Interest contemplated hereby;

A party may disclose confidential information to any officer, employee, advisor, shareholder or consultant who it reasonably determines needs to know or have the information for the purposes of effecting or assessing the Transaction provided that the disclosing party will be responsible for the recipient protecting the confidential nature of that information and liable to the other party for any unauthorized disclosure.
