Exhibit 2(b)
 
Part One Work Plan
 
The parties recognize and acknowledge that oil exploration, particularly drilling and its associated expenses, are both capital and time intensive. The parties further recognize and acknowledge that, due to the payment schedule mandated by this Agreement, significant exploratory work, particularly on the land subject to the Gabbs Lease, will not be feasible or reasonable unless and until the funds provided for in Sections 1.2(a)(iii), (iv), and (v) have been paid to Seller as contemplated herein. The foregoing facts acknowledged, the Part One Work Plan contemplates an aggregated expenditure of $850,000 USD during the year after the date of this Agreement. The Part One Work Plan allocates for the expenditure of this money accordingly:
 
$385,000 USD to be spent on geological and/or exploratory work necessary for the development of the oil and gas resources underlying the Kibby Flats Leases and/or the leasehold referenced by Item 6 in this Agreement’s Exhibit 1 (the “Cortez Lease”), and/or the potential acquisition of nearby land parcels in fee and/or leasehold;
 
$390,000 USD to be spent (subject to successful compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, filing of all necessary applications, and receipt of all requisite third-party approvals) for acquisition costs, including the posting of a reclamation bond and the subsequent testing of the existing, abandoned well located on the property underlying the Gabbs Lease, the posting of a reclamation bond and the subsequent testing of the existing wells on the Cortez Lease, and the legal fees and filing costs incurred to create and properly form and document a Nevada domestic limited-liability company to act as third party operator for the leaseholds referenced in this Agreement’s Exhibit 1. If rights to said well cannot for any reason be acquired, then, the $390,000 will be spent on geological and/or exploratory work to develop the oil and gas resources underlying the Gabbs Lease, Kibby Flats Leases, or Cortez Lease and/or the potential acquisition of nearby land parcels in fee and/or leasehold.
 
$15,000 USD to be spent for BLM Rental payments required under the Gabbs Lease, Kibby Flats Leases, and the Cortez Lease to maintain same in good standing.
 
$60,000 USD ($5,000 per month for one year) to retain on an independent contractor basis an individual agreed upon by High Sierra, Fagen and Buyer to coordinate and oversee work performed under the Part One Work Plan.
 
It is expressly understood and agreed that all of Seller’s interest in any wells as may be drilled on either the Gabbs and the Kibby Flats leases (as described above) or nearby land parcels as may be acquired in fee and/or leasehold (as described above), including the Cortez Lease, shall be and become part of the Assets to be transferred and conveyed to Buyer at Closing. Furthermore, it is expressly understood and agreed that all of Seller’s interest, if any, as well as all liabilities, including but not limited to, reclamation bonds and costs, that may arise in the existing abandoned well located on the property underlying the Gabbs lease (including any improvements thereto and any personal
property associated therewith) shall be and become part of the Assets to be transferred and conveyed to Buyer at Closing.

Any portion of the funds held in the Escrow Account but not expensed prior to Closing shall remain in the Escrow Account and be allocated towards one of the above uses as deemed appropriate by the Operator.
 
High Sierra Exploration, LLC and Nancy Fagen (and their successors or assigns) will be not be required to pay any share or amounts towards the Part One Work Plan expenditures until the funds provided for in Sections 1.2(a)(iii), (iv), and (v) of the Agreement have been paid to Seller via the Escrow Account and expended accordingly.
 
Unless the abandoned well on the Nancy Fagen lease is able to be re-entered pursuant to yet-to­be-determined regulatory permits, engineering feasibility studies, and prudent business practices, that the sums envisioned to be provided by Buyer for development of either or both of the Kibby Flats and Gabbs properties shall limit field efforts to geological testing and survey work. Should a new, “from scratch” well be drilled on either property, new funds will need to be raised in amounts commensurate with such an effort.
 
The parties acknowledge and agree that the JOA will be representative of the above terms and all money paid towards the Part One Work Plan prior to the completion of the JOA will be allocated accordingly.
