BUYER MORTGAGE NOTE #2
 
FOR VALUE RECEIVED, Tonaquint, Inc., a Utah corporation (the “Borrower”), hereby promises to pay to Bonanza Goldfields Corp., a Nevada corporation (the “Lender,” and together with the Borrower, the “Parties”), the principal sum of $150,000.00 together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, fees incurred or other amounts owing hereunder, all as set forth below in this Buyer Mortgage Note #2 (this “Note”). This Note is issued pursuant to that certain Securities Purchase Agreement of even date herewith, entered into by and between the Borrower and the Lender (as the same may be amended from time to time, the “Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which the Lender issued to the Borrower that certain Secured Convertible Promissory Note in the principal amount of $1,660,000.00 (as the same may be amended from time to time, the “Lender Note”) convertible into shares of the Company’s Common Stock. All capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed thereto in the Purchase Agreement.
 
1. Principal and Interest. Interest shall accrue on the unpaid principal balance and any unpaid late fees or other fees under this Note at a rate of five percent (5.0%) per annum until the full amount of the principal and fees has been paid. Interest shall be computed on the basis of a 365-day year for the actual number of days elapsed.  Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary herein, in no event shall the applicable interest rate at any time exceed the maximum interest rate allowed under applicable law, as provided in Section 11 below. The entire unpaid principal balance and all accrued and unpaid interest, if any, under this Note, shall be due and payable on or before the earlier of (i) sixty (60) days following the occurrence of the Maturity Date (as defined in the Lender Note) under the Lender Note, and (ii) so long as the Borrower has been required to prepay that certain Buyer Mortgage Note #1 of even date herewith in the principal amount of $50,000 (“Buyer Mortgage Note #1”) pursuant to Section 1(ii) of such Buyer Mortgage Note #1, five (5) Trading Days (as defined in the Purchase Agreement) after the Initial Registration Statement (as defined in that certain Registration Rights Agreement of even date herewith by and between the Borrower and Lender) is declared effective in accordance with the provisions of such Registration Rights Agreement (the “Buyer Mortgage Note Maturity Date”).
 
2. Payment. Unless prepaid, all principal and accrued interest under this Note is payable in one lump sum on the Buyer Mortgage Note Maturity Date. All payments of interest and principal shall be (i) in lawful money of the United States of America, and (ii) in the form of immediately available funds. All payments shall be applied first to costs of collection, if any, then to accrued and unpaid interest, and thereafter to principal. Payment of principal and interest hereunder shall be delivered to the Lender at the address furnished to the Borrower for that purpose.

3. Prepayment by the Borrower. The Borrower may, in its sole and absolute discretion, pay, without penalty, all or any portion of the outstanding balance along with any accrued but unpaid interest on this Note at any time prior to the Buyer Mortgage Note Maturity Date.
 
4. Security. The payment of this Note shall be secured by that certain mortgage of even date herewith (as the same may be amended from time to time, the “Mortgage”) executed by the Borrower, as Mortgagor, in favor of the Lender, as Mortgagee, encumbering certain real property of the Borrower located in Cook County, Illinois, as will be more specifically set forth in the Mortgage, all the terms and conditions of which are hereby incorporated and made a part of this Note.  The Lender covenants and agrees to release the Mortgage pursuant to the terms of Section 5.
 
5. Release of Mortgage. The Lender covenants and agrees that simultaneous with the receipt of this Note, duly executed by the Borrower, Lender shall execute and deliver to Borrower a Release Deed substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Release”), which will operate to release the Mortgage upon satisfaction of the conditions for release of the Mortgage set forth in the Escrow Agreement. As reflected in the Escrow Agreement, an escrow agent (the “Escrow Agent”), mutually satisfactory to the Borrower and the Lender, shall hold the Release in escrow, subject to the condition that the Escrow Agent may not release the Release to the Borrower for recording until all of the conditions for release of the Mortgage set forth in the Escrow Agreement have been satisfied. In accordance with the terms of the Escrow Agreement, the Release shall be released to the Borrower and then recorded (thereby releasing the Mortgage) on the earlier of (i) the first date on which all of the Buyer Mortgage Notes are repaid in full, and (ii) six (6) months and three (3) days following the date the Mortgage is recorded or such later date as determined in the sole discretion of the Borrower (the “Release Date”).  For avoidance of doubt, after the Release Date, there shall be no collateral securing this Note.
 
6. Right of Offset. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any of the other Transaction Documents, in the event (i) of the occurrence of any Event of Default (as defined in the Lender Note) under the Lender Note or any other note issued by the Lender in connection with the Purchase Agreement, (ii) the Borrower exercises any Event of Default Redemption Right or Fundamental Transaction Redemption Right (as such terms are defined in the Lender Note) under the Lender Note, (iii) the Lender Note is accelerated for any reason, or (iv) of a breach of any material term, condition, representation, warranty, covenant or obligation of the Lender under any Transaction Document, the Borrower shall be entitled to deduct and offset any amount owing by the Lender under the Lender Note from any amount owed by the Borrower under this Note.  In the event that the Borrower’s exercise of its offset rights under this Section 6 results in the full satisfaction of the Borrower’s obligations under this Note, then the Lender shall return this Note to the Borrower for cancellation or, in the event this Note has been lost, stolen or destroyed, the Lender shall provide the Borrower with a lost note affidavit in a form reasonably acceptable to the Borrower.

7. Default. If any of the events specified below shall occur (each, an “Event of Default”) the Lender may declare the unpaid principal balance under this Note, together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, fees incurred or other amounts owing hereunder immediately due and payable, by notice in writing to the Borrower.  If any default, other than a Payment Default (as defined below), is curable, then the default may be cured (and no Event of Default will have occurred) if the Borrower, after receiving written notice from the Lender demanding cure of such default, either (a) cures the default within fifteen (15) days of the receipt of such notice, or (b) if the cure requires more than fifteen (15) days, immediately initiates steps that the Lender deems in the Lender’s reasonable discretion to be sufficient to cure the default and thereafter diligently continues and completes all reasonable and necessary steps sufficient to produce compliance as soon as reasonably practical. Each of the following events shall constitute an Event of Default:
 
(a) Failure to Pay. The Borrower’s failure to make any payment when due and payable under this Note (a “Payment Default”);
 
(b) Breaches of Covenants. The Borrower’s failure to observe or perform any other covenant, obligation, condition or agreement contained in this Note;
 
(c) Representations and Warranties. If any representation, warranty, certificate, or other statement (financial or otherwise) made or furnished by or on behalf of the Borrower to the Lender in writing in connection with this Note or any of the other Transaction Documents, or as an inducement to the Lender to enter into the Purchase Agreement, shall be false, incorrect, incomplete or misleading in any material respect when made or furnished; and
 
(d) Involuntary Bankruptcy. If any involuntary petition is filed under any bankruptcy or similar law or rule against the Borrower, and such petition is not dismissed within sixty (60) days, or a receiver, trustee, liquidator, assignee, custodian, sequestrator or other similar official is appointed to take possession of any of the assets or properties of the Borrower or any guarantor.
 
8. Binding Effect; Assignment. This Note shall be binding on the Parties and their respective heirs, successors, and assigns; provided, however, that neither party shall assign any of its rights hereunder without the prior written consent of the other party, except that the Borrower may assign this Note to any of its Affiliates without the prior written consent of the Lender and, furthermore, the Lender agrees that it shall not unreasonably withhold, condition or delay its consent to any other assignment of this Note by the Borrower.
 
9. Governing Law; Venue. The terms of this Note shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Utah as applied to contracts entered into by Utah residents within the State of Utah which contracts are to be performed entirely within the State of Utah.  With respect to any disputes arising out of or related to this Note, the Parties consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of, and venue in, the state courts located in Salt Lake County, State of Utah (or in the event of federal jurisdiction, the United States District Court for the District of Utah), and hereby waive, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any objection, including any objection based on forum non conveniens, to the bringing of any such proceeding in such jurisdiction or to any claim that such venue of the suit, action or proceeding is improper.

17.  Amendments and Waivers; Remedies. No failure or delay on the part of either Party hereto in exercising any right, power or remedy hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right, power or remedy preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or remedy.
