Warrant.


THIS CERTIFIES THAT, in consideration of the services of MARTIN THORP ("Holder") provided to the Four Rivers BioEnergy Inc., or its affiliates, directly and indirectly, as a contractor, Holder is entitled, at any time or from time to time at or after NOVEMBER 19, 2008 ("Commencement Date"), and at or before 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time on NOVEMBER 19, 2015 ("Expiration Date"), but not thereafter, to subscribe for, purchase and receive, in whole or in part, up to 450,000 shares of Common Stock of the Company ("Common Stock") at an exercise price of $2.45  per share.  If the Expiration Date is a day on which banking institutions are authorized by law to close, then this Warrant may be exercised on the next succeeding day which is not such a day in accordance with the terms herein. This Warrant is initially exercisable at the above stated prices per share of Common Stock purchased; provided, how ever, that upon the occurrence of any of the events specified in Section 6 hereof, the rights granted by this Warrant, including the exercise prices and the number of shares of Common Stock to be received upon such exercise, shall be adjusted as therein specified.  The term "Exercise Price" shall mean the either collectively or singly, as the context requires, the initial exercise price stated above or the adjusted exercise price, also depending on the context, of a share of Common Stock.  The term "Securities" shall mean the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant.


2.

Exercise.


2.1

Exercise Form.  In order to exercise this Warrant, the exercise form attached hereto must be duly executed and completed and delivered to the Company, together with this Warrant and payment of the Exercise Price for the Securities being purchased.  If the subscription rights represented hereby shall not be exercised at or before 5:00 p.m., Eastern time, on the Expiration Date, this Warrant shall become and be void without further force or effect, and all rights represented hereby shall cease and expire.


2.2

Legend.  Each certificate for Securities purchased under this Warrant shall bear a legend as follows, unless such Securities have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended ("Act"):


"The securities represented by this certificate have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended ("Act") or applicable state law. The securities may not be offered for sale, sold or otherwise transferred except pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Act, or pursuant to an exemption from registration under the Act and applicable state law."

Conversion Right.


2.3.1

Determination of Amount.  In lieu of the payment of the Exercise Price in cash, the Holder shall have the right (but not the obligation) to convert this Warrant, in whole or in part, into Common Stock ("Conversion Right"), as follows: upon exercise of the Conversion Right, the Company shall deliver to the Holder (without payment by the Holder of any of the Exercise Price) that number of shares of Common Stock equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the "Value" (as defined below) of the portion of the Warrant being converted at the time the Conversion Right is exercised by (y) the Market Price.  The "Value" of the portion of the Warrant being converted shall equal the remainder derived from subtracting (a) the Exercise Price multiplied by the number of shares of Common Stock being converted from (b) the Market Price of the Common Stock multiplied by the number of shares of Common Sto ck being converted.  As used herein, the term "Market Price" at any date shall be deemed to be the last reported sale price of the Common Stock on such date, or, in case no such reported sale takes place on such day, the average of the last reported sale prices for the immediately preceding three trading days, in either case as officially reported by the principal securities exchange on which the Common Stock is listed or admitted to trading, or, if the Common Stock is not listed or admitted to trading on any national securities exchange or if any such exchange on which the Common Stock is listed is not its principal trading market, the last reported sale price as furnished by the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. ("NASD") through the Nasdaq Stock Market system, or, if applicable, the OTC Bulletin Board, or if the Common Stock is not listed or admitted to trading on any of the foregoing markets, or similar organization, as determined in good faith by resolution of the Board of Directors of the Company, based on the best information available to it.


2.3.2

Exercise of Conversion Right.  The Conversion Right may be exercised by the Holder on any business day on or after the Commencement Date and not later than the Expiration Date by delivering the Warrant with a duly executed exercise form attached hereto with the conversion section completed to the Company, exercising the Conversion Right and specifying the total number of shares of Common Stock the Holder will purchase pursuant to such conversion.

"Piggy-Back" Registration.


5.1.1

Grant of Right.  The Holders of this Warrant shall have the right during the exercise period to include all or any of the shares of Common Stock underlying this Warrant (collectively, the "Registrable Securities") as part of any registration of securities filed by the Company, including pursuant to Form S-8 or any equivalent form to the extent permitted (other than in connection with a transaction contemplated by Rule 145(a) promulgated under the Act or any equivalent form); provided, however, that if, in the written opinion of the Company's managing underwriter or underwriters, if any, for such offering (the "Underwriter"), the inclusion of the Registrable Securities, when added to the securities being registered by the Company or the selling stockholder(s), will exceed the maximum amount of the Company's securities which can be marketed (i) at a price reasonably related to their then current market val ue, or (ii) without materially and adversely affecting the entire offering, the Company shall nevertheless register all or any portion of the Registrable Securities required to be so registered but such Registrable Securities shall not be sold by the Holders until 90 days after the registration statement for such offering has become effective; and provided further that, if any securities are registered for sale on behalf of other stockholders in such offering and such stockholders have not agreed to defer such sale until the expiration of such 90 day period, the number of securities to be sold by all stockholders in such public offering during such 90 day period shall be apportioned pro rata among all such selling stockholders, including all holders of the Registrable Securities, according to the total amount of securities of the Company proposed to be sold by said selling stockholders, including all holders of the Registrable Securities.


5.1.2

Terms.  The Company shall bear all fees and expenses attendant to registering the Registrable Securities, including any filing fees payable to FINRA, but the Holders shall pay any and all underwriting commissions and the expenses of any legal counsel selected by the Holders to represent them in connection with the sale of the Registrable Securities.  In the event of such a proposed regis­tration, the Company shall furnish the then Holders of outstanding Registrable Securities with not less than thirty days written notice prior to the proposed date of filing of such registration statement. Such notice to the Holders shall continue to be given for each registration statement filed by the Company until such time as all of the Registrable Securities have been sold by the Holder.  The holders of the Registrable Securities shall exercise the "piggy-back" rights provided for herein by giving written notice, within twenty days of the receipt of the Company's notice of its intention to file a registration statement.  The Company shall cause any registration statement filed pursuant to the above "piggyback" rights to remain effective until the earlier of (i) all Registrable Securities thereunder have been sold, or are freely saleable as to amount, without restriction, under an exemption from the registration requirements or (ii) two years from the date of effectiveness of such registration statement. Nothing contained in this Warrant shall be construed as requiring any Holder to exercise this Warrant or any part thereof prior to the initial filing of any registration statement or the effectiveness thereof.

5.2

General Terms


5.2.1

Indemnification.


(a)

The Company shall indemnify the Holder(s) of the Registrable Securities to be sold pursuant to any registration statement hereunder and any underwriter or person deemed to be an underwriter under the Act and each person, if any, who controls such Holders or underwriters or persons deemed to be underwriters within the meaning of Section 15 of the Act or Section 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended ("Exchange Act"), against all loss, claim, damage, expense or liability (including all reasonable attorneys' fees and other expenses reasonably incurred in investigating, preparing or defending against any claim whatsoever) to which any of them may become subject under the Act, the Exchange Act or otherwise, arising from such registration statement.  The Holder(s) of the Registrable Securities to be sold pursuant to such registration statement, and their successors and assigns, shall severally, and not jointl y, indemnify the Company, against all loss, claim, damage, expense or liability (including all reasonable attorneys' fees and other expenses reasonably incurred in investigating, preparing or defending against any claim whatsoever) to which they may become subject under the Act, the Exchange Act or otherwise, arising from information furnished by or on behalf of such Holders, in writing, for specific inclusion in such registration statement, provided, however, that in no event shall the aggregate amount payable by a Holder exceed the profit, if any, earned by such Holder as a result of the exercise by him of the Warrants and the sale by him of the underlying shares of Common Stock. .


(b)

If any action is brought against a party hereto, ("Indemnified Party") in respect of which indemnity may be sought against the other party ("Indemnifying Party"), such Indemnified Party shall promptly notify Indemnifying Party in writing of the institution of such action and Indemnifying Party shall assume the defense of such action, including the employment and fees of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party.  Such Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ its or their own counsel in any such case, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such Indemnified Party unless (i) the employment of such counsel shall have been authorized in writing by Indemnifying Party in connection with the defense of such action, or (ii) Indemnifying Party shall not have employed counsel to defend such action, or (iii) such Indemnified Party shall have been advised by counsel that there may be one or more legal defenses available to it which may result in a conflict between the Indemnified Party and Indemnifying Party (in which case Indemnifying Party shall not have the right to direct the defense of such action on behalf of the Indemnified Party), in any of which events, the reasonable fees and expenses of not more than one additional firm of attorneys designated in writing by the Indemnified Party shall be borne by Indemnifying Party.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if Indemnified Party shall assume the defense of such action as provided above, Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any settlement of any such action effected without its written consent.


(c)

If the indemnification or reimbursement provided for hereunder is finally judicially determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unavailable to an Indemnified Party (other than as a consequence of a final judicial determination of willful misconduct, bad faith or gross negligence of such Indemnified Party), then Indemnifying Party agrees, in lieu of indemnifying such Indemnified Party, to contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Party (i) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received, or sought to be received, by Indemnifying Party on the one hand and by such Indemnified Party on the other or (ii) if (but only if) the allocation provided in clause (i) of this sentence is not permitted by applicable law, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits referred to in such clause (i) but also the relative fault of Indemnifying Party and of such I ndemnified Party; provided, however, that in no event shall the aggregate amount contributed by a Holder exceed the profit, if any, earned by such Holder as a result of the exercise by him of the Warrants and the sale by him of the underlying shares of Common Stock.


(d)

The rights accorded to Indemnified Parties hereunder shall be in addition to any rights that any Indemnified Party may have at common law, by separate agreement or otherwise.


5.2.2

Exercise of Warrants.  Nothing contained in this Warrant shall be construed as requiring the Holder(s) to exercise their Warrants prior to or after the initial filing of any registration statement or the effectiveness thereof.

5.2.3

Documents Delivered to Holders.  The Company shall furnish to each Holder participating in any of the foregoing offerings and to each Underwriter of any such offering, if any, a signed counterpart, addressed to such Holder or Underwriter, of (i) an opinion of counsel to the Company, dated the effective date of such registration statement (and, if such registration includes an underwritten public offering, an opinion dated the date of the closing under any underwriting agreement related thereto), and (ii) a "cold comfort" letter dated the effective date of such registration statement (and, if such registration includes an underwritten public offering, a letter dated the date of the closing under the underwriting agreement) signed by the independent public accountants who have issued a report on the Company's financial statements included in such registration statement, in each case covering substantially the same m atters with respect to such registration statement (and the prospectus included therein) and, in the case of such accountants' letter, with respect to events subsequent to the date of such financial statements, as are customarily covered in opinions of issuer's counsel and in accountants' letters delivered to underwriters in underwritten public offerings of securities.  The Company shall also deliver promptly to each Holder participating in the offering requesting the correspondence and memoranda described below and to the managing underwriter copies of all correspondence between the Commission and the Company, its counsel or auditors and all memoranda relating to discussions with the Commission or its staff with respect to the registration statement and permit each Holder and underwriter to do such investigation, upon reasonable advance notice, with respect to information contained in or omitted from the registration statement as it deems reasonably necessary to comply with applicable securities laws o r rules of the NASD.  Such investigation shall include access to books, records and properties and opportunities to discuss the business of the Company with its officers and inde­pendent auditors, all to such reasonable extent and at such reasonable times and as often as any such Holder shall reasonably request.


6.

Adjustments


6.1

Adjustments to Exercise Price and Number of Securities.  The Exercise Price and the number of shares of Common Stock underlying this Warrant shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as hereinafter set forth:


6.1.1

Stock Dividends - Recapitalization, Reclassification, Split-Ups.  If, after the date hereof, and subject to the provisions of Section 6.2 below, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock is increased by a stock dividend on the Common Stock payable in shares of Common Stock or by a split-up, recapitalization or reclassification of shares of Common Stock or other similar event, then, on the effective date thereof, the number of shares of Common Stock issuable on exercise of this Warrant shall be increased in proportion to such increase in outstanding shares.


6.1.2

Aggregation of Shares.  If after the date hereof, and subject to the provisions of Section 6.2, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock is decreased by a consolidation, combination or reclassification of shares of Common Stock or other similar event, then, upon the effective date thereof, the number of shares of Common Stock issuable on exercise of this Warrant shall be decreased in proportion to such decrease in outstanding shares.


6.1.3

Adjustments in Exercise Price.  Whenever the number of shares of Common Stock purchasable upon the exercise of this Warrant is adjusted, as provided in this Section 6.1, the Exercise Price shall be adjusted (to the nearest cent) by multiplying such Exercise Price immediately prior to such adjustment by a fraction (x) the numerator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock purchasable upon the exercise of this Warrant immediately prior to such adjustment, and (y) the denominator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock so purchasable immediately thereafter.




5




6.1.4

Replacement of Securities upon Reorganization, etc.  In case of any reclassification or reorganization of the outstanding shares of Common Stock other than a change covered by Section 6.1.1 hereof or which solely affects the par value of such shares of Common Stock, or in the case of any merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another corporation (other than a consolidation or merger in which the Company is the continuing corporation and which does not result in any reclassification or reorganization of the outstanding shares of Common Stock), or in the case of any sale or conveyance to another corporation or entity of the property of the Company as an entirety or substantially as an entirety in connection with which the Company is dissolved, the Holder of this Warrant shall have the right thereafter (until the expiration of the right of exercise of this Warrant) to receive upon the exercise hereof, for the same aggregate Exercise Price payable hereunder immediately prior to such event, the kind and amount of shares of stock or other securities or property (including cash) receivable upon such reclassification, reorganization, merger or consolidation, or upon a dissolution following any such sale or other transfer, by a Holder of the number of shares of Common Stock of the Company obtainable upon exercise of this Warrant immediately prior to such event; and if any reclassification also results in a change in shares of Common Stock covered by Sections 6.1.1 or 6.1.2, then such adjustment shall be made pursuant to Sections 6.1.1, 6.1.2, 6.1.3 and this Section 6.1.4. The provisions of this Section 6.1.4 shall similarly apply to successive reclassifications, reorganizations, mergers or consolidations, sales or other transfers.


6.1.5

Changes in Form of Warrant.  This form of Warrant need not be changed because of any change pursuant to this Section, and Warrants issued after such change may state the same Exercise Price and the same number of shares of Common Stock and Warrants as are stated in the Warrants initially issued pursuant to this Agreement.  The acceptance by any Holder of the issuance of new Warrants reflecting a required or permissive change shall not be deemed to waive any rights to a prior adjustment or the computation thereof.


6.2

Elimination of Fractional Interests.  The Company shall not be required to issue certificates representing fractions of shares of Common Stock upon the exercise of this Warrant, nor shall it be required to issue scrip or pay cash in lieu of any fractional interests, it being the intent of the parties that all fractional interests shall be eliminated by rounding any fraction up to the nearest whole number of shares of Common Stock or other securities, properties or rights.


6.3

Surrender of Warrant.  The Board of Directors of the Company may, in the event of an acquisition of substantially all of the Company’s assets or at least 65% of the combined voting power of the Company’s then outstanding securities in one or more transactions (including by way of merger or reorganization) which has been approved by the Company’s Board of Directors, require a Holder to relinquish this Warrant and all of its rights to the Company upon the tender by the Company to Holder of cash in an amount equal to the Value of the Warrant.  The Holder of the Warrant agrees to surrender this Warrant and its rights on the tender of the Value, and no formal consent or agreement shall be required of the Holder to extinguish this Warrant upon payment of the Value.  Holder has no right to reject the tender of the Value of the Warrant.


7.

Reservation and Listing.  The Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of issuance upon exercise of this Warrant, such number of shares of Common Stock or other securities, properties or rights as shall be issuable upon the exercise thereof.  The Company covenants and agrees that, upon exercise of the Warrants and payment of the Exercise Price therefore, all shares of Common Stock and other securities issuable upon such exercise shall be duly and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable and not subject to preemptive rights of any stockholder. As long as the Warrants shall be outstanding, the Company shall use its best efforts to cause all shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants to be listed (subject to official notice of issuance) on all securities exchanges (or, if applicable on Nasdaq or the Over-the-Counter Bu lletin Board) on which the Common Stock is then listed and/or quoted.
