Hi Thasis,

As per my understanding - the only thing Rio Tinto has 10 days more for is to buy more shares of ETG to keep its majority stake and not for anything else. 

Rio is not in the business of financing others. They have 10 business days option to keep their current majority stake or let Sandtorm be the majority shareholder of ETG. 

Maybe someone can correct me if I have misunderstood the deal.
