Ciclon I & II land owners retain a 4 percent net smelter royalty (NSR) holding, ad infinitum. The contract also provides that if the Ciclon group of claims results in reserve estimates exceeding one million tonnes of copper with a grade of +0.6% copper, the sale price accelerates by an additional $5 million dollars.
