AGREEMENT TO ACCEPT COLLATERAL
IN FULL SATISFACTION OF OBLIGATIONS
THIS AGREEMENT TO ACCEPT COLLATERAL IN FULL SATISFACTION OF OBLIGATIONS (“Agreement”) is made and entered into, effective March 31, 2020 (“Effective Date”) by and between the undersigned noteholders (hereinafter each is referred to as “Lender” or “Secured Party” and collectively “Lenders” or “Secured Parties”), JOHN GIBBS, as Collateral Agent, and MAGELLAN GOLD CORPORATION, a Nevada corporation (hereinafter referred to as “Debtor” or as the “Corporation”).
A. For good and valuable consideration, Debtor executed and delivered the Promissory Notes listed on Exhibit A hereto (the “Notes”) in favor of the creditors listed on Exhibit A (each a “Creditor”). As of the date hereof, Debtor is indebted under the Notes (and all documents delivered pursuant thereto) in the amounts set forth on Exhibit A hereto, principal and interest, plus costs and expenses of collection including reasonable attorneys’ fees (the “Debtor’s Indebtedness”).
B. The obligations of Debtor to the Creditors under the Notes are secured by a Stock Pledge Agreement and Security Agreement (“Stock Pledge”)from Debtor to Creditors covering 100 shares of common stock of Magellan Acquisition Corporation and one (1) share of Minerales Vane 2 S.A. de CV (the “Collateral”). The Collateral is held under a Collateral Agent Agreement dated November 30, 2017 (“Collateral Agent Agreement”) pursuant to which John Gibbs was appointed Collateral Agent for the Creditors.
D. The aforementioned Notes and Stock Pledge Agreements and any documents or instruments incorporated therein or executed by and between the Creditors and the Debtor in connection therewith are referred to herein collectively as the “Loan Documents”.
E. The Notes matured and became due and payable on December 31, 2019 and remain unpaid. As a result, Debtor is in default of its obligations to Creditors under the Loan Documents.
F. As provided and permitted by the Loan Documents, Lender accelerated Debtor’s Indebtedness.
G. Debtor is unable to meet the demand of Creditors for full satisfaction of its obligations to Lender under the Loan Documents.
H. Creditors and Debtor have agreed to Creditors’ acceptance of the Collateral in full satisfaction of Debtor’s Indebtedness, in a manner which complies with the provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code now in effect in the State of Colorado.
I. The Lender or Secured Party and the Debtor acknowledge that the current market value of the Collateral does not exceed the total monetary obligation of the Debtor that is currently due and payable as a result of Debtor’s default of its obligations to Creditors under the Loan Documents.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the above recitals, as well as the covenants and representations contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, Lender and Debtor hereby agree as follows:

Debtor’s Indebtedness shall be deemed for all purposes to be reduced by the amount of obligations waived pursuant to this paragraph 2 and Debtor shall be forgiven for any obligation or liability for the amounts so waived by Lenders.
(3) ACCEPTANCE OF COLLATERAL IN FULL SATISFACTION OF DEBTOR’S INDEBTEDNESS.
(a) Debtor hereby transfers and assigns to Collateral Agent, as agent for the Lenders, all of Debtor’s right, title and interest in and to the Collateral. Debtor shall have no further interest in the Collateral.

(5) DISCHARGE OF COLLATERAL AGENT
(a) By the execution of this Agreement, the Collateral Agent hereby transfers and Assigns to each Lender such Lender’s proportionate share of the Collateral, based upon the principal amount of each Lender’s Note. Each Lender shall hold such proportionate interest as tenant-in-common with each other Lender. Lenders shall have no right to partition the Collateral.
