Purchasers of the Note shall receive 6% annualized interest which is payable quarterly, or at the pre-payment date, whichever occurs first. The first interest payment date shall be March 31, 2010. In the event that the principal amount of this Note and all accrued and unpaid interest is not paid in full when such amount becomes due and payable, the interest rate shall increase to twelve percent (12%) per annum and shall continue to accrue on the outstanding balance until such outstanding balance is paid.

The Company granted to the Note Holder a lien on, security interest in, and so pledges and assigns to them an interest in property, assets and rights including, but not limited to, all mineral rights and oil and gas assets of the Debtor, and all proceeds thereof in the 35,325 leased acres located in Morgan and Scott Counties on the Chattanooga Shale and the 173 natural gas and oil producing wells.
