  Six months from date of the loan agreement.

 Early repayment is at the option of the Borrower for no penalty.

Bridge Barn Limited, a company owned and controlled by Mr Nathaniel le Roux which has provided a loan facility of £7.5 million to SCL secured by a Debenture over all of the assets and undertakings of SCL (including the transfer of security of the issued capital of SCL) has agreed not to enforce its rights under the Debenture for so long as there are any outstanding monies due to the Lenders in terms of the Director Loan.


Related Party Transaction

Accordingly, the board of Scotgold (excluding those Lenders who are directors of the Company, who are precluded from opining) consisting of Phillip Day, Richard Gray, Philip Jackson and Richard Barker, having consulted with SP Angel, the Company's nominated adviser, consider that the terms of the Director Loan are fair and reasonable insofar as its shareholders are concerned.
