Acquisition of Mining Claims in the sector of the graphite property Matawinie

During fall 2013, following exceptional exploration outcomes on Nouveau Monde's Matawinie graphite properties, Nouveau Monde entered into an exploration agreement with 3457265 Canada Inc.

Under the terms of this agreement, 3457265 performed a regional airborne survey covering a total area of 4000 km2, according to instructions given by Nouveau Monde's technical staff. Based on the results of the survey, 3457265 acquired 4 blocks of claims (the "Mining Claims. The Mining Claims cover a total of over 25 linear kilometres of conductive material with similar geophysical signatures to the Ti-Nou graphite deposits within the Matawinie property").

In exchange for this technical support, 3457265 Canada inc. granted Nouveau Monde an exclusive and irrevocable option to acquire 100% interest in the Mining Claims under the following terms:


--  Reimbursement of the airborne survey costs and costs related to the
    claim acquisition ($317,700) by way of a share issuance at a
    predetermined price of $0.25 per share, subject to approval of the
    option agreement by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"); 
--  Delivery of a total of $300,000 in exploration work over the next 24
    months, $100,000 of which is to be provided in the first 12 months and
    $200,000 in the following 12 months;

On successful completion of these terms of the Agreement, Nouveau Monde assumes 100% ownership of the Mining Claims subject to a 2% NSR Royalty held by 345726. Nouveau Monde can buy back the NSR Royalty for $1,000,0000 for each 1%

Moreover, were Nouveau Monde ever to file a positive preliminary feasibility study or/and a feasibility study, Nouveau Monde undertakes, upon each such filing, to either issue 1,000,000 common shares of its share capital to 3457265, or to pay 3457265 $1,000,000, at Nouveau Monde's sole discretion.
