AMOUNT AND GENERAL TERMS OF THE LOAN
1.1 Loan Amount.
The maximum amount of the Loan ("Loan Amount”) shall be Two Million Five Hundred Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($2,500,000).
1.2 Multiple Advance Loan.
This Loan represents a multiple advance credit facility. At the Closing of the Loan, Lender will disburse approximately Two Million and no/100 Dollars ($2,000,000) directly to Borrower’s approved contractors, subcontractors and materialmen for work and materials supplied to and incorporated in the Nevada Real Property (“First Funding”). The outstanding principal balance of the Loan may be increased by one or more advances by Lender during the Term (each an “Advance”) within thirty (30) days following the First Funding directly to Borrower’s approved contractors, subcontractors and materialmen for work and materials supplied to and incorporated in the Nevada Real Property, on the terms and conditions set forth in section 1.9.7, below. It is expressly agreed by Borrower that the maximum outstanding principal on this Note shall not at any one time exceed the amount of Two Million Five Hundred Thousand and no/100 Dollars ($2,500,000), and the balance of the Loan outstanding at any specific time shall be the total amount advanced by Lender less the amount of principal payments, if any, made from time to time by Borrower.
The term of the Loan ("Term") shall be for a period of sixty (60) days from the date of First Funding.
1.3.1. Extension Right. Provided there is not an existing Event of Default under this Agreement or any of the Loan Documents, or one that will occur with the giving of notice or the passing of time, or if there exists a non-monetary Event of Default and Borrower has commenced and is diligently prosecuting a cure, if any such right exists under this Agreement or the applicable Loan Document, Borrower shall have the right to extend the Term (“Extension”) for an additional sixty (60) days, subject to satisfaction of the following, each of which is a condition of the Extension:
(a) Borrower shall give Lender written notice of its election for the Extension (“Extension Notice”) at least ten (10) days prior to the expiration of the Term.
(b) In addition to all other sums due from Borrower to Lender, Borrower shall pay at the expiration of the Term an extension loan fee equal to fifteen (15%) percent of the aggregate total of all Lender advances to Borrower during the Term of the Loan.

As a result, Borrower and Lender have specifically negotiated and agreed that the interest rate of the Loan is fair and equitable to both Borrower and Lender in light of the risk to Lender and the opportunities available to Borrower through the use of the Loan funds and is not the result of undue pressure or influence.
(b) Upon the earlier of (i) an incurred Event of Default (as defined in this Agreement) prior to the expiration of the Term following which Lender exercises a right to accelerate the unpaid Loan balance, or (ii) at the expiration of the Term, Borrower shall pay all advanced and unpaid principal, plus a one-time payment equal to fifteen (15%) percent of the aggregate total of all Lender advances to Borrower during the Term of the Loan, plus and any other sum due from Borrower pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document.

Borrower acknowledges that the processing of funds by Lender shall be performed in the ordinary course of Lender’s business and that the time involved in the processing may vary depending upon the administrative workload of Lender. Any payment received by Lender shall be conditionally accepted (and shall be not deemed late as long as Lender receives payment by the date required by this Agreement) by Lender until such time as the processing of the payment is completed.
