AMENDMENT TO DEBT CONVERSION AGREEMENT
THIS AMENDMENT TO DEBT CONVERSION AGREEMENT (this “Amendment”) is made as of February 7, 2020, by and among PUREBASE CORPORATION, a Nevada corporation (“PureBase”), and US MINE CORP., a Nevada corporation (“USMC”). PureBase and USMC may be referred to herein, individually, as a “Party” and, collectively, as the “Parties.”
W I T N E S S E T H
WHEREAS, between February 19, 2016 and July 31, 2019, USMC, which is an affiliate of PureBase, made loans to PureBase in the aggregate amount of $4,264,789 (the “USMC Loan Amount”); and
WHEREAS, on November 24, 2014, Craig Barto, an affiliate of USMC (“Barto”), made a loan to PureBase in the amount of $1,000,000 (the “Barto Loan Amount”), at an agreed upon interest rate of 5.00% per annum; and
WHEREAS, as of July 31, 2019, accrued and unpaid interest on the Barto Loan Amount totaled $234,247 (the “Barto Interest” and, together with the Barto Loan Amount, the “Barto Debt”); and
WHEREAS, effective as of July 31, 2019, for good and valuable consideration, Barto assigned the full amount of the $1,234,247 Barto Debt to USMC, and USMC accepted such assignment; and
WHEREAS, following such assignment of the Barto Debt from Barto to USMC, the total amount due to USMC by PureBase was $5,499,036 (the “USMC Debt”); and
WHEREAS, as of July 31, 2019, PureBase and USMC agreed to convert the entire USMC Debt into shares of common stock of PureBase, $0.001 par value per share (“Common Stock”), at a conversion price of $0.09 per share (the “Conversion Price”); and
WHEREAS, on September 5, 2019 (the “Conversion Date”), PureBase incorrectly converted only $5,442,363 of the USMC Debt into only 60,248,484 shares of PureBase’s Common Stock (the “Initial Conversion Shares”), pursuant to the terms and conditions of a letter agreement by and between PureBase and USMC (the “Agreement”), dated as of the Conversion Date; and
WHEREAS, subsequently, it came to PureBase’s attention that PureBase erroneously converted only $5,442,363 of the USMC Debt (rather than the full $5,499,036 USMC Debt) into only the 60,248,484 Initial Conversion Shares (rather than the full 60,470,698 shares of PureBase’s Common Stock that USMC should have received upon conversion of $5,442,363 of the USMC Debt); and
WHEREAS, PureBase desires to (a) issue to USMC the additional 222,216 shares of PureBase’s Common Stock that USMC should have received upon the conversion of $5,442,363 of the USMC Debt, and (b) convert the remaining $56,673 of the USMC Debt (at the Conversion Price of $0.09 per share) into 629,700 additional shares of PureBase’s Common Stock (collectively, the “Additional Conversion Shares”); and
WHEREAS, in consideration for USMC’s agreement to convert the USMC Loan Amount, and as an inducement therefor, PureBase deems it fair and equitable to pay to USMC a payable conversion fee on the amount of the USMC Loan Amount, calculated at a rate of 6.00% per annum through July 31, 2019 (the “Payable Conversion Fee”); and
WHEREAS, PureBase and USMC have agreed that the resulting $489,436 Payable Conversion Fee will be paid to USMC by the issuance to USMC of 5,438,178 additional shares PureBase’s Common Stock (the “Payable Conversion Fee Shares”), calculated at the Conversion Price of $0.09 per share; and
WHEREAS, the Parties wish to amend the Agreement on the terms set forth in this Amendment.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises herein contained and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the Parties hereby agree to amend the Agreement as follows:

Unless otherwise specified herein, each term used herein that is defined in the Agreement shall have the meaning assigned to such term in the Agreement. Each reference to “hereof,” “hereto,” “hereunder,” “herein” and “hereby” and each other similar reference, and each reference to “this Agreement” and each other similar reference, contained in the Agreement shall from and after the date hereof refer to the Agreement as amended hereby. Except as specifically amended hereby, all terms and provisions of the Agreement shall continue unmodified and remain in full force and effect.
2. Issuance of the Additional Conversion Shares and Payable Conversion Fee Shares.
(a) Upon execution and delivery of this Amendment, PureBase shall issue to USMC the 851,916 Additional Conversion Shares.
(b) Upon execution and delivery of this Amendment, PureBase shall issue to USMC the 5,438,178 Payable Conversion Fee Shares as payment of the Payable Conversion Fee.

(d) Upon PureBase’s issuance of the Additional Conversion Shares and the Payable Conversion Fee Shares pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, as amended hereby, the Additional Conversion Shares and Payable Conversion Fee Shares shall be deemed to be duly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.
