Item 8.01. 
Other Events
On August 30, 2016, in order to avoid the loss of certain mineral claims owned by the Registrant which required payments by August 30, 2016 to the United States Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, the Registrant borrowed $19,425 from Thorium Energy Partners LLC, an entity owned by a shareholder of the Registrant and a creditor of the Registrant which is owed approximately $823,000 pursuant to previous loans made to the Registrant. The Registrant was without the funds to make such payments.
The loan matures on November 15, 2016 and is secured by a lien on and security interest in the mineral leases covered by such claims. In connection with such loan transaction, Thorium agreed to extend the maturity dates of certain other promissory notes held by it which were in default as of August 30, 2016.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
