In addition to the loan, Baker Steel has been issued with 13.49mln warrants with an exercise price of C$0.17 per share. 

 It also gets an option to acquire a 2% net smelter revenue royalty on the Unkur Project from Azarga Metals for US$5mln.

Unkur currently has an NI 43-101 compliant resource of 724mln pounds of copper and 76.8mln ounces of silver, equating to a total silver equivalent resource of 182mln ounces.
