2.0 Gold Shipment Processing and Payment Procedures:
2.1 AIR CARGO: We stress that
it is essential that the Seller follow the export and delivery CIF Dubai procedures and document examples precisely, as provided for in SPA-1, in respect of air cargo delivery to Dubai International Airport Customs to ensure the smooth import of each Gold
Shipment. Once your Gold Shipment arrives at Dubai International Airport Customs, G4SI security (www.g4s.com), the world’s largest precious metals security and transport provider, will clear your Gold Shipment through Customs and deliver your Gold Shipment
to AURORA in an armored truck. You, the Seller (or your designated representatives), will accompany me, the Buyer, to AURORA, and in our mutual presence the following will be accomplished:
(X) The box(es) containing your gold are opened and the gold weighed. AURORA, Seller and Buyer agree on the pre-smelt weight of your gold.
(X) The gold is placed in a furnace and smelted. Assay Sample is taken of the smelted gold.

(X) The Seller and the
Buyer verify the LBMA Value of gold on that date and the Seller issues “on the spot” the Final Invoice based on the following factors: (1) the weight in grams of 99.99% fine gold confirmed by the AURORA Final Assay Report, (2) the applicable LBMA
gold fixing and (3) the discount to the LBMA agreed between the Seller and Buyer in SPA-1 (e.g., 5.00%).

arranges the SWIFT MT103 transfer of Buyer’s full payment to the Seller’s Bank Account specified in the Irrevocable Payment Instruction and provides proof of said SWIFT transfer to the Seller. As Seller and Buyer have jointly signed an Irrevocable
Payment Instruction with AURORA, AURORA will make all payments automatically from COMPANY Refinery Account 150 to the Seller. AURORA will transfer the title to the gold from the Seller to the Buyer only after the full payment has been completed.
2.2 PRIVATE AIR CHARTER: The Dubai, UAE Customs gold import procedures for Private Air Charter shipments are exactly the same as air cargo procedures, except the Airway Bill of a commercial airline is replaced by the Private Air Charter Manifest.
HAND CARRY: The Dubai, UAE Customs gold import procedures for Hand Carry shipments are very straight forward. The only difference is that a second Commercial Invoice must be issued to the person hand carrying the gold and the person hand carrying the gold
clears the Gold Shipment through Dubai International Airport Customs. We would meet you at Dubai International Airport and then proceed directly to AURORA. Please let us know if you plan to hand carry gold and we will provide you the Dubai hand carry gold
