     the aggregate Revolving Credit Commitments of the Risk Participants).

     the Australian Lenders and the Risk Participants in effect from time to
     time, the Australian

     Borrower may borrow under this Section 2.01(b)(i), prepay pursuant to
     Section 2.07(a) and reborrow under this Section 2.01(b)(i).

          (II) PURCHASE BY RISK PARTICIPANTS OF NON-PRO RATA ADVANCES.  Upon (A)
     the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, and (B)
     written demand (whether or not the conditions specified in Section 3.02 are
     satisfied at such time and notwithstanding any other fact or circumstance)
     by the Non-Pro Rata Lender to the US Administrative Agent (with a copy of
     such demand to each Risk Participant PGI, and the Australian Borrower) with
     respect to any outstanding Non-Pro Rata Advance, each Risk Participant
     shall purchase from the Non-Pro Rata Lender without recourse to the Non-Pro
     Rata Lender (except in the case of a breach of the representation and
     warranty set forth below in this Section 2.01(b)(ii)), and the Non-Pro Rata
     Lender shall sell and assign to each such Risk Participant, such Risk
     Participant's Adjusted Pro Rata Share of such outstanding Non-Pro Rata
     Advance as of the date of such demand.  Such Risk Participant shall effect
     such purchase, sale and assignment by making available for the account of
     its Appropriate Lending Office to the Australian Administrative Agent for
     the account of the Non-Pro Rata Lender, by deposit to the Appropriate
     Administrative Agent's Account, in same day funds in the currency in which
     such Non-Pro Rata Advance is denominated, an amount equal to such Risk
     Participant's Adjusted Pro Rata Share of such outstanding Non-Pro Rata
     Advance.  Each Borrower hereby agrees to each such purchase, sale and
     assignment.  Each Risk Participant agrees to purchase its Adjusted Pro Rata
     Share of an outstanding Non-Pro Rata Advance on (1) the Business Day on
     which demand therefor is made by the Non-Pro Rata Lender, PROVIDED that
     notice of such demand is given not later than 11:00 a.m. (Sydney, Australia
     time) on such Business Day or (2) the first Business Day next succeeding
     such demand if notice of such demand is given after such time.  Upon any
     such sale and assignment by the Non-Pro Rata Lender to any Risk Participant
     of a portion of a Non-Pro Rata Advance, the Non-Pro Rata Lender represents
     and warrants to such Risk Participant that the Non-Pro Rata Lender is the
     legal and beneficial owner of such interest being sold and assigned by it,
     but makes no other representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility
     with respect to such Non-Pro Rata Advance, the Loan Documents or any Loan
     Party.  If and to the extent that any Risk Participant shall not have so
     made the amount of its purchase price with respect to such Non-Pro Rata
     Advance available to the Appropriate Administrative Agent, such Risk
     Participant agrees to pay to such Appropriate Administrative Agent
     forthwith on demand such amount together with interest thereon, for each
     day from the date of demand by the Non-Pro Rata Lender to the date such
     amount is paid to the Appropriate Administrative Agent, at the Applicable
     Interbank Rate.  If such Risk Participant shall pay to the Appropriate
     Administrative Agent such amount for the account of the Non-Pro Rata Lender
     on any Business Day, such amount so paid in respect of principal shall
     constitute an Australian Borrower Advance made by such Risk Participant in
     its capacity as a Lender (and for such purposes such Lender shall be deemed
     to be an Australian Lender with respect to such Advance) on such Business
     Day for purposes of this Agreement, and the outstanding principal amount of
     the Non-Pro Rata Advance made by the Non-Pro Rata Lender shall be reduced
     by such amount on such Business Day.  Each Risk Participant and the
     Australian Borrower acknowledge that this Section 2.01(b)(ii) is entered
     into by the Risk Participants at the request, and for the benefit, of the
     Australian Borrower.  Each Risk Participant acknowledges and agrees that,
     notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, its obligation
     to purchase its Adjusted Pro-Rata Share of any Non-Pro Rata Advance
     hereunder is absolute and unconditional and shall

     not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including, without
     limitation, (i) the occurrence and continuance of any Default or Event of
     Default, (ii) the failure of any condition described in Article II to be
     satisfied, (iii) the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other
     right that such Risk Participant may have at any time against the Non-Pro
     Rata Lender, any other Lender Party, any Borrower or any other Person,
     whether in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement
     or any unrelated transaction or (iv) any other circumstance that might
     otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, such Risk
     Participant.

          (III)     CASH COLLATERAL ON DEFAULT OR RATING DECLINE OF RISK
     PARTICIPANT.  If, and for so long as (A) any Default has occurred and is
     continuing, or (B) any Risk Participant's public debt rating (as defined
     below) is below BBB or Baa2 by S&P or Moody's, respectively (or, with
     respect to any Risk Participant that does not have such a public debt
     rating at any time of determination, the Non-Pro Rata Lender shall
     determine that such Risk Participant's ability to meet such Risk
     Participant's obligations under Section 2.01(b)(ii) has declined since the
     date such Risk Participant became a Risk Participant hereunder), (1) in the
     case of the foregoing clause (A), each Risk Participant and, in the case of
     the foregoing clause (B), such Risk Participant shall, immediately upon
     demand by the Non-Pro Rata Lender, cash collateralize its Adjusted Pro Rata
     Share of all outstanding Non-Pro Rata Advances and all outstanding
     Australian Letters of Credit by depositing an amount equal to such Adjusted
     Pro Rata Share into a cash collateral account (but not any Cash Collateral
     Account) designated by the Australian Administrative Agent (and, if
     necessary, established for such purposes and, so long as no Event of
     Default has occurred and is continuing, established in such location as
     determined after consultation with PGI), and (2) each such Risk Participant
     shall, if so demanded by the Non-Pro Rata Lender in its sole discretion by
     written notice to the US Administrative Agent, PGI and such Risk
     Participant, prior to the funding by the Non-Pro Rata Lender of any Non-Pro
     Rata Advance in connection with each additional Australian Borrower
     Borrowing and prior to the issuance of each additional Australian Letter of
     Credit, deposit to such cash collateral account an amount equal to such
     Risk Participant's Adjusted Pro Rata Share of the aggregate amount of such
     Borrowing or the Available Amount of such Letter of Credit, as the case may
     be.  If such Risk Participant shall fail to make any deposit required
     pursuant to this Section 2.01(b)(iii), then for so long as such failure
     shall continue (I) such Risk Participant shall cease to be a Risk
     Participant as to each Australian Borrower Borrowing occurring, and each
     Australian Letter of Credit issued, on or after the date of the related
     demand by the Non-Pro Rata Lender for cash collateral, (II) such Risk
     Participant shall be an Australian Lender with respect to each such
     Borrowing and Letter of Credit (but, any provision hereof to the contrary
     notwithstanding, such Risk Participant shall not be entitled to make any
     claim under Section 2.14 in respect of any such Borrowing or Letter of
     Credit), and (III) any provision hereof to the contrary notwithstanding,
     the Non-Pro Rata Lender shall have no obligation with respect to the
     Revolving Credit Commitment or the Unused Revolving Credit Commitment of
     such Risk Participant.  Amounts deposited by any Risk Participant in any
     such cash collateral account shall be held for the benefit of the Non-Pro
     Rata Lender, shall be applied by the Appropriate Administrative Agent to
     satisfy such Risk Participant's obligations under Section 2.01(b)(ii) and
     shall, to the extent such amounts exceed at any time such Risk
     Participant's Adjusted Pro Rata Share of all outstanding Non-Pro Rata
     Advances and all outstanding Australian Letters of Credit, be returned to
     such Risk Participant.  The term "public debt rating" means, as of any date
     with respect to any Person, the rating that has been most

     recently announced by either S&P or Moody's, as the case may be, for any
     class of non-credit enhanced long-term senior unsecured debt issued by such
     Person.

          (C)  DRAWINGS.  Each Canadian Lender that is able to create bankers'
acceptances in Canada severally agrees, on the terms and conditions hereinafter
set forth, to accept Drafts (each Draft so accepted, a "BANKERS' ACCEPTANCE")
for the account of the Canadian Borrower, and to purchase such Bankers'
Acceptances from time to time on any Business Day during the period from the
date hereof until the Termination Date having a Face Amount (determined in the
Equivalent thereof in US Dollars) for all such Bankers' Acceptances purchased by
such Lender at the time of such Drawing not to exceed such Lender's Unused
Revolving Credit Commitment at such time.  Each Canadian Lender that is unable
to create bankers acceptances in Canada severally agrees, on the terms and
conditions hereinafter set forth, to purchase completed Drafts (which have not
been and will not be accepted by such Lender or any other Person) (each, a "BA
EQUIVALENT NOTE") for the account of the Canadian Borrower from time to time on
any Business Day during the period from the date hereof until the Termination
Date having a Face Amount (determined in the Equivalent thereof in US Dollars)
for all such BA Equivalent Notes purchased by such Lender at the time of such
Drawing not to exceed such Lender's Unused Revolving Credit Commitment at such
time.  Any provision of this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, no
Lender shall accept or purchase any Draft or Bankers' Acceptance or BA
Equivalent Note if, after giving effect thereto, the sum of the aggregate
principal amount of outstanding Canadian Borrower Advances and outstanding
Letter of Credit Advances in respect of Canadian Letters of Credit PLUS the
aggregate Face Amount of BA Obligations and the aggregate Available Amount of
all Canadian Letters of Credit then outstanding would exceed the Canadian
Borrower Sublimit in effect at such time.  Each Drawing shall be comprised
solely of Canadian Dollars, shall be in an aggregate Face Amount which, together
with any Canadian Prime Rate Advances made in connection with such Drawing,
equals CN$5,000,000 or an integral multiple of CN$1,000,000 in excess thereof
and shall consist of the creation and purchase of Bankers' Acceptances or the
purchase of BA Equivalent Notes at or about the same time by the Canadian
Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit
Commitments.  Within the limits of the Canadian Borrower Sublimit and each
Canadian Lender's Unused Revolving Credit Commitment, in each case as in effect
from time to time, amounts drawn by the Canadian Borrower under this Section
2.01(c) and repaid or prepaid from time to time may be redrawn by the Canadian
Borrower under this Section 2.01(c).

          (D)  LETTERS OF CREDIT.  Each US Issuing Bank severally agrees, on the
terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, to issue US Letters of Credit
available for drawing in US Dollars.  Each Canadian Issuing Bank severally
agrees, on the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, to issue Canadian
Letters of Credit available for drawing in US Dollars or Canadian Dollars.  Each
Australian Issuing Bank severally agrees, on the terms and conditions
hereinafter set forth to issue Australian Letters of Credit available for
drawing in US Dollars or Australian Dollars. Each Appropriate Issuing Bank
severally agrees to issue Letters of Credit from time to time on any Business
Day during the period from the date hereof until 30 days before the Termination
Date (i) in an aggregate Available Amount for all Letters of Credit (including
Existing Letters of Credit) issued by such Issuing Bank not to exceed at any
time such Issuing Bank's Letter of Credit Commitment at such time LESS the
aggregate Available Amount of all other Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing
Bank's Affiliates, (ii) in an Available Amount for each such Letter of Credit
not to exceed an amount equal to the Unused Revolving Credit Commitments of the
Appropriate Lenders at such time (PLUS, with respect to each Australian Letter
of Credit, the

aggregate Unused Revolving Commitments of the Risk Participants at such time),
and (iii) in an aggregate Available Amount for all Letters of Credit not to
exceed at any time the Letter of Credit Facility at such time; PROVIDED,
HOWEVER, that no Existing Issuing Bank, in its capacity as such, shall issue any
Letters of Credit hereunder other than the deemed issuance of the Existing
Letters of Credit as set forth herein.  As of the Closing Date, each Existing
Letter of Credit shall constitute, for all purposes of this Agreement and the
other Loan Documents, a Letter of Credit issued and outstanding hereunder and
shall, for purposes of Section 2.09(c), be deemed to be issued hereunder on the
Closing Date.  No Letter of Credit (other than an Australian Bank Guarantee)
shall have an expiration date (including all rights of any Borrower or the
beneficiary to require renewal) later than the earlier of 10 days before the
Termination Date and (A) in the case of a Financial Letter of Credit, one year
after the date of issuance thereof (but any Financial Letter of Credit may by
its terms be renewable annually upon notice (a "NOTICE OF RENEWAL") given to the
Issuing Bank that issued such Letter of Credit and the US Administrative Agent
on or prior to any date for notice of renewal set forth in such Letter of Credit
but in any event at least three Business Days prior to the date of the proposed
renewal of such Letter of Credit and upon fulfillment of the applicable
conditions set forth in Article III unless such Issuing Bank has notified the
Appropriate Borrower (with a copy to the US Administrative Agent) on or prior to
the date for notice of termination set forth in such Letter of Credit but in any
event at least 30 days prior to the then scheduled expiration date of its
election not to renew such Financial Letter of Credit (a "NOTICE OF
TERMINATION"), which election may be made by such Issuing Bank only if it no
longer has a Letter of Credit Commitment hereunder), and (B) in the case of a
Commercial Letter of Credit, 120 days after the date of issuance thereof;
PROVIDED that the terms of each Financial Letter of Credit that is renewable
annually shall not permit the expiration date (after giving effect to any
renewal) of such Financial Letter of Credit in any event to be extended to a
date later than 10 days before the Termination Date.  If either a Notice of
Renewal is not given by the Appropriate Borrower or a Notice of Termination is
given by the relevant Issuing Bank pursuant to the immediately preceding
sentence, the applicable Letter of Credit shall expire on the date on which it
otherwise would have been automatically renewed; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that even in
the absence of receipt of a Notice of Renewal with respect to any Financial
Letter of Credit, the Issuing Bank that issued such Letter of Credit may in its
discretion (but shall have no obligation to), unless instructed to the contrary
by the US Administrative Agent, the Required Lenders, or the Appropriate
Borrower, deem that a Notice of Renewal with respect to such Letter of Credit
had been timely delivered and in such case, a Notice of Renewal with respect to
such Letter of Credit shall be deemed to have been so delivered for all purposes
under this Agreement and such Letter of Credit may be renewed by such Issuing
Bank as if such Notice of Renewal had been so delivered.  Except as may be
required by the beneficiary of any Australian Bank Guarantee, no Australian Bank
Guarantee shall have an expiration date (including all rights of any Borrower or
the beneficiary to require renewal) later than 10 days before the Termination
Date (it being understood that, if required by the beneficiary of any Australian
Bank Guarantee, such Australian Bank Guarantee may have an expiration date which
extends beyond the Termination Date or may have no expiration date).  Within the
limits of the Letter of Credit Commitments of the Appropriate Issuing Banks and
the Unused Revolving Credit Commitments of the Appropriate Lenders (and, with
respect to Australian Letters of Credit, the aggregate Unused Revolving Credit
Commitments of the Risk Participants) in effect from time to time, and subject
to the limits referred to above, each Borrower may request the issuance of
Letters of Credit under this Section 2.01(d), repay any Letter of Credit
Advances resulting from drawings thereunder pursuant to Section 2.04(c) or
2.05(b) and request the issuance of additional Letters of Credit under this
Section 2.01(d).

          (E)  DESIGNATION OF COMMITMENTS.  Prior to the Closing Date, the
Borrowers shall deliver to the US Administrative Agent (which shall promptly
thereafter deliver a copy to each other Administrative Agent and each Lender) a
notice in the form of Exhibit D (a "COMMITMENT DESIGNATION NOTICE"), which
Commitment Designation Notice shall be effective upon such delivery.  After the
Closing Date, the Borrowers may deliver to the US Administrative Agent (which
shall promptly thereafter deliver a copy to each other Administrative Agent and
each Lender) a Commitment Designation Notice not more frequently than eight
times in any calendar year, each such Commitment Designation Notice complying
with the provisions of this Section 2.01(e) to be effective at 10:00 a.m. (New
York City time) five US Business Days (and at least three Canadian Business Days
and Australian Business Days) after receipt by the US Administrative Agent.
Each Commitment Designation Notice shall be executed by each Borrower and shall
set forth therein the percentage of the Revolving Credit Facility which will be
available to each Borrower until the effectiveness of a replacement Commitment
Designation Notice; PROVIDED that (i) the sum of such percentages for all of the
Borrowers must equal 100%, (ii) the percentage of the Revolving Credit Facility
designated with respect to any Borrower may not be less than the percentage of
the Revolving Credit Facility (including the Available Amount of all outstanding
Letters of Credit) outstanding to, and subject to then pending Notices of
Borrowing, Notices of Issuance and Notices of Drawing, as applicable, of, such
Borrower on the date such notice is received by the US Administrative Agent and
on the date of effectiveness of such notice, (iii) the percentage designated
with respect to the Canadian Borrower may not at any time be such as would
permit Accommodations to the Canadian Borrower and Canadian Letters of Credit in
excess of the Canadian Borrower Sublimit in effect at such time, and (iv) upon
the effectiveness of each such Commitment Designation Notice, such Commitment
Designation Notice shall be binding on the Borrowers until the effectiveness of
a replacement Commitment Designation Notice.  No Commitment Designation Notice
may be delivered hereunder so long as any Event of Default has occurred and is
continuing.  Any contrary provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document
notwithstanding, during the effectiveness of each such Commitment Designation
Notice, no Borrower may request, and no Lender or Issuing Bank shall have any
obligation to make or issue Accommodations or Letters of Credit for such
Borrower at any time which would cause the aggregate principal amount and Face
Amount of Accommodations and the aggregate Available Amount of Letters of Credit
outstanding to such Borrower to exceed the amount equal to the product of the
Applicable Designated Commitment Percentage set forth for such Borrower in such
Commitment Designation Notice  MULTIPLIED BY the Revolving Credit Facility at
such time.

          SECTION 2.02.  MAKING THE ADVANCES.  (A)  NOTICES OF BORROWING.
Except as otherwise provided in Section 2.03 or 2.04, each Borrowing shall be
made on notice by the Appropriate Borrower to the US Administrative Agent, given
not later than 12:00 noon (New York City time), on a US Business Day (i) at
least four Australian Business Days prior to the date of the proposed Borrowing
in the case of an Australian Borrower Borrowing consisting of Fixed Rate
Advances, (ii) at least three US Business Days or Canadian Business Days prior
to the date of the proposed Borrowing in the case of any US Borrower Borrowing
or Canadian Borrower Borrowing, respectively, consisting of Fixed Rate Advances,
(iii) at least two Australian Business Days prior to the date of the proposed
Borrowing in the case of an Australian Borrower Borrowing consisting of
Fluctuating Rate Advances, and (iv) at least one US Business Day or Canadian
Business Day prior to the date of the proposed Borrowing in the case of any US
Borrower Borrowing or Canadian Borrower Borrowing, respectively, consisting of
Fluctuating Rate Advances.  Upon receipt of any such notice of a Borrowing
(each, a "NOTICE OF BORROWING"), the US Administrative Agent shall give each
other Administrative Agent and each Appropriate Lender (and,

if such Notice of Borrowing relates to Australian Borrower Advances, each Risk
Participant) prompt notice thereof by telex or telecopier.  Each such Notice of
Borrowing shall be in writing (including by telex or telecopier), in
substantially the form of Exhibit E hereto and shall be confirmed by telephone
immediately by the Borrower delivering such Notice of Borrowing, specifying
therein the requested (i) date of such Borrowing, (ii) currency and Type of
Advances comprising such Borrowing (subject to Sections 2.01 and 2.08(a)),
(iii) aggregate amount of such Borrowing (stated in the requested currency) and
(iv) in the case of a Borrowing consisting of Fixed Rate Advances, initial
Interest Period for each such Advance.  Each Appropriate Lender shall, before
11:00 a.m. (New York City time), with respect to US Borrower Borrowings and
Canadian Borrower Borrowings, and before 11:00 a.m. (Sydney time), with respect
to Australian Borrower Borrowings, on the date of such Borrowing, make available
for the account of its Appropriate Lending Office to the Appropriate
Administrative Agent at the Appropriate Administrative Agent's Account, in same
day funds, such Lender's ratable portion of such Borrowing in accordance with
Section 2.01.  Upon the fulfillment of the applicable conditions set forth in
Article III (which fulfillment each Administrative Agent may assume in the
absence of actual knowledge, or notice received from any Borrower or the
Required Lenders, to the contrary), such Administrative Agent will make the
funds it has received from the Appropriate Lenders available to the Borrower
requesting such Borrowing by crediting the Appropriate Borrower's Account;
PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the Appropriate Administrative Agent shall first make a
portion of such funds equal to the aggregate principal amount of any Letter of
Credit Advances made by any Appropriate Issuing Bank and by any other
Appropriate Lender and outstanding on the date of such Borrowing, plus interest
accrued and unpaid thereon to and as of such date, available to such Issuing
Bank and such other Lenders for repayment of such Letter of Credit Advances.

          (B)  LIMITATIONS ON BORROWINGS AND INTEREST PERIODS.  Anything in
Section 2.02(a) to the contrary notwithstanding, (i) no Borrower may select
Fixed Rate Advances for any Borrowing if the aggregate amount of such Borrowing
is less than US$5,000,000 (or C$5,000,000 or A$5,000,000, as the case may be),
(ii) no Borrower may select any Type of Fixed Rate Advance for any Borrowing if
the obligation of the Appropriate Lenders to make such Type of Fixed Rate
Advances shall then be suspended pursuant to Section 2.10 or Section 2.12 and
(iii) there may not be more than 15 Interest Periods in effect at any one time.

          (C)  BINDING EFFECT OF NOTICES OF BORROWING.  Each Notice of Borrowing
shall be irrevocable and binding on the Borrower that gave such Notice of
Borrowing.  In the case of any Borrowing that the related Notice of Borrowing
specifies is to be comprised of Fixed Rate Advances, the Borrower requesting
such Borrowing shall indemnify each Appropriate Lender against any loss, cost or
expense incurred by such Lender as a result of any failure to fulfill on or
before the date specified for such Borrowing in such Notice of Borrowing the
applicable conditions set forth in Article III, including, without limitation,
any loss (excluding loss of anticipated profits), cost or expense incurred by
reason of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by
such Lender to fund the Advance to be made by such Lender as part of such
Borrowing when such Advance, as a result of such failure, is not made on such
date.

          (D)  ASSUMPTIONS OF ADMINISTRATIVE AGENTS.  Unless the Appropriate
Administrative Agent shall have received notice from an Appropriate Lender prior
to the date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to the
Appropriate Administrative Agent such Lender's ratable portion of

such Borrowing as determined in accordance with Section 2.01, the Administrative
Agents may assume that such Lender has made such portion available to the
Appropriate Administrative Agent on the date of such Borrowing in accordance
with Section 2.02(a) and the Appropriate Administrative Agent may, in reliance
upon such assumption, make available to the Borrower requesting such Borrowing
on such date a corresponding amount.  If and to the extent that any such Lender
shall not have so made such ratable portion available to the Appropriate
Administrative Agent, such Lender and the Borrower that requested such Borrowing
severally agree to repay or pay to the Appropriate Administrative Agent
forthwith on demand such corresponding amount and to pay interest thereon, for
each day from the date such amount is made available to such Borrower until the
date such amount is repaid or paid to the Appropriate Administrative Agent, at
(i) in the case of such Borrower, the interest rate applicable at such time
under Section 2.08 to Advances comprising such Borrowing and (ii) in the case of
such Lender, the Applicable Interbank Rate.  If such Lender shall pay to the
Appropriate Administrative Agent such corresponding amount, such amount so paid
shall constitute such Lender's Advance as part of such Borrowing for all
purposes.

          (E)  FAILURE TO MAKE ADVANCES.  The failure of any Lender to make the
Advance to be made by it as part of any Borrowing shall not relieve any other
Lender of its obligation, if any, hereunder to make its Advance on the date of
such Borrowing, but no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other
Lender to make the Advance to be made by such other Lender on the date of any
Borrowing.

          SECTION 2.03.  DRAWINGS OF BA OBLIGATIONS; RE-LIQUIFYING BILLS.

          (A)  REQUEST FOR DRAWING.  Each Drawing shall be made on notice, given
not later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) on a US Business Day at least two
Canadian Business Days prior to the date of the proposed Drawing, by the
Canadian Borrower to the US Administrative Agent, which shall give each
Administrative Agent and each Canadian Lender prompt notice thereof by telex or
telecopier.  Each notice of a Drawing (a "NOTICE OF DRAWING") shall be in
writing (including by telex or telecopier), in substantially the form of Exhibit
F hereto, and shall be confirmed by telephone immediately by the Canadian
Borrower, specifying therein the requested (i) date of such Drawing (which shall
be a Business Day), (ii) aggregate Face Amount of such Drawing and (iii) the
initial Maturity Date for each BA Obligation comprising part of such Drawing;
PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, if the Canadian Administrative Agent determines in good
faith (which determination shall be conclusive and binding upon the Canadian
Borrower) that the Drafts to be accepted and purchased or the BA Equivalent
Notes to be purchased as part of any Drawing cannot, due solely to the requested
aggregate Face Amount thereof, be accepted and/or purchased ratably by the
Canadian Lenders in accordance with Section 2.01(c), then the aggregate Face
Amount of such Drawing (or the Face Amount of BA Obligations to be created by
any Canadian Lender) shall be reduced to such lesser amount as the Canadian
Administrative Agent determines will permit such Drafts and/or BA Equivalent
Notes comprising part of such Drawing to be so accepted and purchased and each
Canadian Lender shall fund the difference between such Lender's ratable portion
of the original aggregate Face Amount of such Drawing and the Face Amount of the
BA Obligations to be created by such Lender after giving effect to such
reduction in the form of a Canadian Prime Rate Advance, which shall be deemed
for all purposes hereof to be a Canadian Borrower Advance made pursuant to
Section 2.01(a)(ii).  Each Draft and BA Equivalent Note in connection with any
requested Drawing (A) shall be in a minimum amount of CN$100,000 or an integral
multiple of CN$100,000 in

excess thereof, and (B) shall be dated the date of the proposed Drawing.  Each
Canadian Lender shall, before 1:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the date of each
Drawing, (1) in the case of each Canadian Lender able to create bankers'
acceptances in Canada, complete one or more Drafts in accordance with the
related Notice of Drawing, accept such Drafts and purchase the Bankers'
Acceptances created thereby for the Drawing Purchase Price, or (2) in the case
of each Canadian Lender that is not able to create bankers' acceptances in
Canada, complete one or more BA Equivalent Notes in accordance with the related
Notice of Drawing and purchase such completed BA Equivalent Notes for the
Drawing Purchase Price, and, in any case, shall, before 1:00 p.m. (Toronto time)
on such date, make available for the account of its Appropriate Lending Office
to the Canadian Administrative Agent at its Appropriate Administrative Agent's
Account, in same day funds, the Drawing Purchase Price payable by such Lender
for such Drawing less the Drawing Fee payable to such Lender with respect
thereto under Section 2.09(g).  Upon the fulfillment of the applicable
conditions set forth in Article III (which fulfillment the Canadian
Administrative Agent may assume in the absence of actual knowledge, or notice
received from any Borrower or the Required Lenders, to the contrary), the
Canadian Administrative Agent will make the funds it has received from the
Canadian Lenders available to the Canadian Borrower by crediting its Appropriate
Borrower's Account.

          (B)  LIMITATIONS ON DRAWINGS.  Anything in Section 2.03(a) to the
contrary notwithstanding, the Canadian Borrower may not select a Drawing if the
obligation of the Canadian Lenders to purchase and accept Bankers' Acceptances
shall then be suspended pursuant to Section 2.03(d) or 2.12.

          (C)  BINDING EFFECT OF NOTICES OF DRAWING.  Each Notice of Drawing
shall be irrevocable and binding on the Canadian Borrower.  In the case of any
proposed Drawing, the Canadian Borrower shall indemnify each Canadian Lender
against any loss, cost or expense incurred by such Lender as a result of any
failure to fulfill on or before the date specified in the Notice of Drawing for
such Drawing the applicable conditions set forth in Article III, including,
without limitation, any loss (excluding loss of anticipated profits), cost or
expense incurred by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or
other funds acquired by such Lender to fund the Drawing Purchase Price to be
paid by such Lender as part of such Drawing when, as a result of such failure,
such Drawing is not made on such date.

          (D)  CIRCUMSTANCES MAKING BANKERS' ACCEPTANCES UNAVAILABLE.  (i)  
If, with respect to any proposed Drawing, the Canadian Administrative Agent 
determines in good faith that circumstances affecting the money markets at 
the time any related Notice of Drawing is delivered or is outstanding will 
result in no market for the Bankers' Acceptances to be created in connection 
with such Drawing or an insufficient demand for such Bankers' Acceptances to 
allow the Lenders creating such Bankers' Acceptances to sell or trade the 
Bankers' Acceptances to be created and purchased or discounted by them 
hereunder in connection with such Drawing, then, upon notice to the Canadian 
Borrower and the Canadian Lenders thereof, (A) the Notice of Drawing with 
respect to such proposed Drawing shall be cancelled and the Drawing requested 
therein shall not be made and (B) the right of the Canadian Borrower to 
request a Drawing shall be suspended until the Canadian Administrative Agent 
shall notify such Borrower that the circumstances causing such suspension no 
longer exist.  In the case of any such cancellation of a Notice of Drawing, 
unless the Canadian Borrower shall give written notice to the contrary to the 
US Administrative Agent and the Canadian Administrative Agent, the 
cancellation of any such Notice of 

Drawing shall be deemed to be the giving by the Canadian Borrower of a Notice 
of Borrowing for Canadian Borrower Advances consisting of Canadian Prime Rate 
Advances in an aggregate principal amount equal to the aggregate Face Amount 
of such proposed Drawing and the Canadian Lenders shall, subject to the terms 
and conditions hereof applicable to the making of Canadian Borrower Advances, 
make such Advances available to the Canadian Borrower, if practicable, on the 
same Business Day, and otherwise on the next Business Day.

          (ii) Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Default,
the obligation of the Canadian Lenders to purchase and/or accept BA Obligations
shall be suspended.

          (E)  ASSUMPTIONS OF THE APPROPRIATE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT.  Unless the
Canadian Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Canadian Lender
prior to the date of any Drawing that such Lender will not make available to it
such Lender's ratable share of such Drawing in accordance with Section 2.03(a),
such Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such ratable
share available to it on the date of such Drawing in accordance with
Section 2.03(a) and such Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such
assumption, make available to the Canadian Borrower on such date a corresponding
amount.  If and to the extent that any such Lender shall not have so made such
ratable share available to the Canadian Administrative Agent, such Lender and
the Canadian Borrower severally agree to repay or pay to the Canadian
Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount, together
with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is made available
to such Borrower until the date such amount is repaid or paid to such
Administrative Agent, at (i) in the case of the Canadian Borrower, a rate per
annum equal to the BA Rate used in calculating the Drawing Purchase Price with
respect to such Drawing, and (ii) in the case of such Lender, the Applicable
Interbank Rate.  If such Lender shall pay to the Canadian Administrative Agent
such corresponding amount, such amount so paid shall constitute such Lender's BA
Obligation as part of such Drawing for all purposes under this Agreement.

          (F)  PRESIGNED DRAFT FORMS.  To enable the Canadian Lenders to create
Bankers' Acceptances or to complete BA Equivalent Notes in accordance with
Section 2.01(c) and this Section 2.03, (i) the Canadian Borrower shall supply
each Canadian Lender, upon the Canadian Borrower's execution of this Agreement,
with such number of Drafts and signed blank BA Equivalent Notes provided to the
Canadian Borrower by the Canadian Administrative Agent as the Canadian
Administrative Agent may from time to time reasonably request, duly endorsed and
executed on behalf of the Canadian Borrower by any one or more of its duly
authorized officers.  Each Canadian Lender shall exercise such care in the
custody and safekeeping of any Drafts and BA Equivalent Notes in its possession
from time to time as it would exercise in the custody and safekeeping of similar
property owned by it.  The signatures of officers of the Canadian Borrower on
Drafts and BA Equivalent Notes may be mechanically reproduced in facsimile and
Bankers' Acceptances and BA Equivalent Notes bearing such facsimile signatures
shall be binding upon the Canadian Borrower as if they had been manually signed
by such officers.  Notwithstanding that any of the individuals whose manual or
facsimile signature appears on any Draft or BA Equivalent Note as one of such
officers may no longer hold office at the date of such draft or at the date of
its acceptance by a Lender hereunder or at any time thereafter, any Draft or
Bankers' Acceptance or BA Equivalent Note so signed shall be valid and binding
upon, and enforceable against, the applicable Borrower.

          (G)  DISTRIBUTION OF BANKERS' ACCEPTANCES.  Bankers' Acceptances
purchased by a Canadian Lender in accordance with the terms of Section 2.01(c)
and this Section 2.03 may, in such Lender's sole discretion, be held by such
Lender for its own account until the applicable Maturity Date or sold,
rediscounted or otherwise disposed of by it at any time prior thereto in any
relevant market therefor.

          (H)  FAILURE TO FUND IN RESPECT OF DRAWINGS.  The failure of any
Canadian Lender to fund the Drawing Purchase Price to be funded by it as part of
any Drawing shall not relieve any other Canadian Lender of its obligation
hereunder to fund its Drawing Purchase Price on the date of such Drawing, but no
Canadian Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Canadian
Lender to fund the Drawing Purchase Price to be funded by such other Canadian
Lender on the date of any Drawing.

          (I)  RE-LIQUIFYING BILLS.

          (i)  Within three Business Days of request by any Australian Lender or
     the Non-Pro Rata Lender, the Australian Borrower shall draw Bills without
     recourse to the Australian Borrower in the manner required by such
     Australian Lender or the Non-Pro Rata Lender, as the case may be; PROVIDED
     that the discounted value of such Bills when added to the aggregate
     discounted value of all other outstanding Bills drawn under this clause in
     respect of such Australian Lender or the Non-Pro Rata Lender, as the case
     may be, may not exceed the aggregate principal amount of all then
     outstanding Bank Bill Rate Advances made by such Australian Lender or the
     Non-Pro Rata Lender, as the case may be.  In calculating the aggregate
     discounted value of Bills that any Australian Lender or the Non-Pro Rata
     Lender is entitled to have drawn under this clause, the aggregate
     discounted value of Bills drawn by the Australian Borrower under this
     clause in respect of any other Australian Lender or any former Australian
     Lender is to be disregarded.

          (ii) The Australian Borrower irrevocably appoints each Australian
     Lender and the Non-Pro Rata Lender as its attorney to draw Bills in the
     Australian Borrower's name or on its behalf under clause (i) and agrees to
     ratify all action taken by the Australian Lender or the Non-Pro Rata
     Lender, as the case may be, as its attorney under this clause (ii).

          (iii)     The requirement to draw Bills under clause (i) and the
     appointment under clause (ii) will cease and be revoked without necessity
     for notice, on the later to occur of (i) repayment by the Australian
     Borrower of all outstanding Bank Bill Rate Advances, and (ii) the
     termination in full of the Commitments of the Australian Lenders and the
     Risk Participants.  Nothing in clauses (i) or (ii) requires the Australian
     Borrower or authorizes any Australian Lender or the Non-Pro Rata Lender as
     attorney to draw a Bill which matures after the Termination Date.

          (iv) Each of the Australian Lenders and the Non-Pro Rata Lender
     indemnifies the Australian Borrower against liability on any Bill drawn by
     the Australian Borrower at the request of such Australian Lender or the
     Non-Pro Rata Lender, as the case may be, under clause (i) or drawn by such
     Australian Lender or the Non-Pro Rata Lender, as the case may be, under
     clause

(ii).  Each Australian Lender agrees to pay the costs of preparation of, and all
stamp duty on, each Bill drawn under this Section 2.03(i) on its behalf.

          SECTION 2.04.  ISSUANCE OF AND DRAWINGS AND REIMBURSEMENT UNDER
LETTERS OF CREDIT.  (A)  REQUEST FOR ISSUANCE.  Each Letter of Credit (other
than the Existing Letters of Credit) shall be issued upon notice, given not
later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) on a US Business Day at least five
Business Days prior to the date of the proposed issuance of such Letter of
Credit, by any Borrower to any Appropriate Issuing Bank, which shall give to the
US Administrative Agent and each Lender prompt notice thereof by telex or
telecopier.  Each such notice of issuance of a Letter of Credit (a "NOTICE OF
ISSUANCE") shall be in writing (including by telex or telecopier), and shall be
confirmed by telephone immediately by the Borrower requesting such Letter of
Credit, specifying therein the requested (i) date of such issuance (which shall
be a Business Day), (ii) Available Amount of such Letter of Credit,
(iii) expiration date of such Letter of Credit, (iv) name and address of the
beneficiary of such Letter of Credit and (v) form of such Letter of Credit, and
shall be accompanied by such application and agreement for letter of credit as
such Issuing Bank may specify to the Borrower requesting such Letter of Credit
for use in connection with such requested Letter of Credit (a "LETTER OF CREDIT
AGREEMENT").  If (A) the requested form of such Letter of Credit is acceptable
to such Issuing Bank in its reasonable discretion and (B) such Issuing Bank has
not received notice of objection to such issuance from the Required Lenders
based on a failure to fulfill the applicable conditions set forth in Article
III, such Issuing Bank will, upon fulfillment of the applicable conditions set
forth in Article III (which fulfillment each Issuing Bank may assume in the
absence of actual knowledge, or notice from any Borrower, any Administrative
Agent or the Required Lenders, to the contrary), make such Letter of Credit
available to the Appropriate Borrower at such Issuing Bank's office referred to
in Section 8.02 or as otherwise agreed with the Borrower requesting such Letter
of Credit in connection with such issuance.  In the event and to the extent that
the provisions of any Letter of Credit Agreement shall conflict with this
Agreement, the provisions of this Agreement shall govern.

          (B)  LETTER OF CREDIT REPORTS.  Each Issuing Bank shall furnish (i) to
the US Administrative Agent and PGI, substantially concurrently with the payment
of any drawing under any Letter of Credit, notice of such drawing setting forth
the amount and currency of such drawing and identifying the Letter of Credit
under which such drawing was made, (ii) to the US Administrative Agent,
concurrently with the issuance of any Letter of Credit, notice of such issuance
setting forth the maximum Available Amount and the expiration date of such
Letter of Credit, (iii) to the US Administrative Agent and PGI on the first
Business Day of each week, a written report summarizing issuance and expiration
dates of Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank during the previous week
and drawings during such week under all Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing
Bank (but no such report need be furnished if no such Letters of Credit were
issued or no such drawings were made), (iv) to each Lender on the first Business
Day of each month, a written report summarizing issuance and expiration dates of
Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank during the preceding month and
drawings during such month under all Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing
Bank (but no such report need be furnished if no such Letters of Credit were
issued or no such drawings were made), and (v) to the US Administrative Agent,
each Lender and PGI on the third Business Day preceding the last Business Day of
each calendar quarter, a written report setting forth the average daily
aggregate Available Amount during such calendar quarter of all Letters of Credit
issued by such Issuing Bank.

          (C)  DRAWING AND REIMBURSEMENT.  The payment by any Issuing Bank of a
draft drawn under any Letter of Credit and the payment by any Australian Issuing
Bank of any amount under any Australian Bank Guarantee (any such payment being a
"drawing" for purposes hereof) shall constitute for all purposes of this
Agreement the making by such Issuing Bank of a Letter of Credit Advance in the
amount of such draft or payment, as the case may be, which shall be (i) a US
Base Rate Advance, in the case of a drawing under a US Letter of Credit, (ii) a
Canadian Base Rate Advance, in the case of a drawing under a Canadian Letter of
Credit denominated in US Dollars, (iii) a Canadian Prime Rate Advance, in the
case of a drawing under a Canadian Letter of Credit denominated in Canadian
Dollars, and (iv) an Australian Prime Rate Advance, in the case of a drawing
under an Australian Letter of Credit (and, if such Australian Letter of Credit
is denominated in US Dollars, the amount of such drawing, and of the resulting
Letter of Credit Advance, shall be immediately and automatically converted to
the Equivalent thereof in Australian Dollars).  Upon written demand by any
Issuing Bank with an outstanding Letter of Credit Advance, with a copy of such
demand to the US Administrative Agent, each Appropriate Lender shall purchase
from such Issuing Bank, and such Issuing Bank shall sell and assign to each such
Lender, such Lender's ratable share (based on the Maximum Revolving Commitments
of such Appropriate Lenders, it being understood that for purposes of
determining such ratable share as to any Letter of Credit Advance in respect of
an Australian Letter of Credit, the Maximum Revolving Commitment of the Non-Pro
Rata Lender shall be deemed to be the aggregate Maximum Revolving Commitments of
the Risk Participants) of such outstanding Letter of Credit Advance as of the
date of such purchase, by making available for the account of its Appropriate
Lending Office to the Appropriate  Administrative Agent for the account of such
Issuing Bank, by deposit to the Appropriate Administrative Agent's Account, in
same day funds, an amount equal to the portion of the outstanding principal
amount of (and in the same currency as) such Letter of Credit Advance to be
purchased by such Lender.  Promptly after receipt thereof, such Administrative
Agent shall transfer such funds to such Issuing Bank.  The Borrowers hereby
agree to each such sale and assignment.  Each Appropriate Lender agrees to
purchase its ratable share (as set forth above) of an outstanding Letter of
Credit Advance on (i) the Business Day on which demand therefor is made by the
Issuing Bank which made such Advance, provided notice of such demand is given
not later than 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) (or 11:00 a.m. (Sydney time) with
respect to any such demand by any Australian Issuing Bank) on such Business Day,
or (ii) the first Business Day next succeeding such demand if notice of such
demand is given after such time.  Upon any such assignment by an Issuing Bank to
any Appropriate Lender of a portion of a Letter of Credit Advance, such Issuing
Bank represents and warrants to such Appropriate Lender that such Issuing Bank
is the legal and beneficial owner of such interest being assigned by it, free
and clear of any liens, but makes no other representation or warranty and
assumes no responsibility with respect to such Letter of Credit Advance, the
Loan Documents or any Loan Party.  If and to the extent that any Appropriate
Lender shall not have so made the amount of such Letter of Credit Advance
available to the Appropriate Administrative Agent, such Appropriate Lender
agrees to pay to the Appropriate Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such
amount together with interest thereon, for each day from the date of demand by
such Issuing Bank until the date such amount is paid to the Appropriate
Administrative Agent, at the Applicable Interbank Rate for such Appropriate
Administrative Agent's account or the account of such Issuing Bank, as
applicable.  If such Lender shall pay to the Appropriate Administrative Agent
such amount for the account of such Issuing Bank on any Business Day, such
amount so paid in respect of principal shall constitute a Letter of Credit
Advance made by such Lender on such Business Day for purposes of this Agreement,
and the outstanding principal amount of the Letter of Credit Advance made by
such Issuing Bank shall be reduced by such amount on such Business Day.

          (D)  FAILURE TO MAKE LETTER OF CREDIT ADVANCES.  The failure of any
Appropriate Lender to make the Letter of Credit Advance to be made by it on the
date specified in Section 2.04(c) shall not relieve any other Appropriate Lender
of its obligation hereunder to make its Letter of Credit Advance on such date,
but no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make
the Letter of Credit Advance to be made by such other Lender on such date.

          (E)  CASH COLLATERAL ON RATING DECLINE OF LENDER.  If, and for so long
as, any Appropriate Lender's public debt rating (as defined below) is below BBB
or Baa2 by S&P or Moody's, respectively (or, with respect to any Appropriate
Lender that does not have such a public debt rating at any time of
determination, any Appropriate Issuing Bank shall determine that such Lender's
ability to meet such Lender's obligations under Section 2.04(c) has declined
since the date such Lender became a Lender hereunder), such Lender shall,
immediately upon demand by any Appropriate Issuing Bank, cash collateralize its
ratable share (determined as set forth in Section 2.04(c)) of the aggregate
Available Amount under all Letters of Credit issued by such Issuing Bank and
outstanding at such time by depositing such amount into a cash collateral
account (but not any Cash Collateral Account) designated by the Appropriate
Administrative Agent (and, if necessary, established for such purposes).
Amounts deposited by any Lender in any such cash collateral account shall be
applied by the Appropriate Administrative Agent to satisfy such Lender's
obligations under Section 2.04(c) to the Issuing Bank requesting such cash
collateral and shall, to the extent such amounts exceed at any time such
Lender's ratable share (determined as set forth in Section 2.04(c)) of the
aggregate Available Amount under all outstanding Letters of Credit issued by
such Issuing Bank as to which such Lender has a contingent obligation to
purchase Letter of Credit Advances pursuant to Section 2.04(c), be returned to
such Lender.  The term "public debt rating" means, as of any date with respect
to any Person, the rating that has been most recently announced by either S&P or
Moody's, as the case may be, for any class of non-credit enhanced long-term
senior unsecured debt issued by such Person.

          SECTION 2.05.  REPAYMENT OF ACCOMMODATIONS.

          (A)  REVOLVING CREDIT ADVANCES; BA OBLIGATIONS.

          (I)  REVOLVING CREDIT ADVANCES.  The US Borrower shall repay to the US
     Administrative Agent for the ratable account of the US Lenders on the
     Termination Date the aggregate principal amount of the US Borrower Advances
     then outstanding.  The Canadian Borrower shall repay to the Canadian
     Administrative Agent for the ratable account of the Canadian Lenders on the
     Termination Date the aggregate principal amount of the Canadian Borrower
     Advances then outstanding.  The Australian Borrower shall repay to the
     Australian Administrative Agent for the ratable account of the Australian
     Lenders (and, if any Risk Participants have purchased Non-Pro Rata
     Advances, such Risk Participants with respect to such Advances) and the
     Non-Pro Rata Lender (with respect to any outstanding Non-Pro Rata Advances)
     on the Termination Date the aggregate principal amount of the Australian
     Borrower Advances then outstanding.

          (II) BA OBLIGATIONS.  The Canadian Borrower shall, subject to Sections
     2.11(a) and 2.11(b), pay to the Canadian Administrative Agent for the
     ratable account of the Canadian Lenders on the Maturity Date of any BA
     Obligations an amount equal to the sum of (1) the

     aggregate Face Amount of all such BA Obligations maturing on such date and
     (2) the aggregate principal amount of all Canadian Prime Rate Advances made
     pursuant to Section 2.03(a) in connection with the Drawing of such BA
     Obligation.  Any payment by the Canadian Borrower of any BA Obligations in
     accordance with this Section 2.05(a)(ii) shall, to the extent of such
     payment, satisfy the obligations of the Canadian Borrower under the BA
     Obligations to which it relates and, in the case of a Bankers' Acceptance,
     the Lender that has accepted such Bankers' Acceptance shall, to the extent
     of such payment to such Lender, thereafter be solely responsible for the
     payment thereof.

          (B)  LETTER OF CREDIT ADVANCES.  (i)  Each  Borrower shall repay to
the Appropriate Administrative Agent for the account of each Issuing Bank and
each other Lender that has made a Letter of Credit Advance in respect of any
Letter of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower, on the earlier of the
seventh Business Day after the date on which such Advance was made and the
Termination Date, the outstanding principal amount of each Letter of Credit
Advance made by each of them.

          (ii) The Obligations of each Borrower under this Agreement with
respect to Letters of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower, under any
Letter of Credit Agreement relating thereto and under any other agreement or
instrument relating to any Letter of Credit issued for the account of such
Borrower shall be unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be paid strictly in
accordance with the terms of this Agreement, such Letter of Credit Agreement and
such other agreement or instrument under all circumstances, including, without
limitation, the following circumstances (it being understood that any such
payment by any Borrower is without prejudice to, and does not constitute a
waiver of, any rights such Borrower might have or might acquire as a result of
the payment by any Issuing Bank of any draft or the reimbursement by such
Borrower thereof):

          (A)  any lack of validity or enforceability of any Loan Document, any
     Letter of Credit Agreement, any Letter of Credit or any other agreement or
     instrument relating thereto (all of the foregoing being, collectively, the
     "L/C RELATED DOCUMENTS");

          (B)  any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any
     other term of, all or any of the Obligations of any Borrower in respect of
     any L/C Related Document or any other amendment or waiver of or any 
     consent to departure from all or any of the L/C Related Documents;

          (C)  the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other right that
     any Borrower may have at any time against any beneficiary or any transferee
     of a Letter of Credit (or any Persons for whom any such beneficiary or any
     such transferee may be acting), any Issuing Bank or any other Person,
     whether in connection with the transactions contemplated by the L/C Related
     Documents or any unrelated transaction;

          (D)  any statement or any other document presented under a Letter of
     Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any
     respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect;

          (E)  payment by any Issuing Bank under a Letter of Credit against
     presentation of a draft or certificate or a demand that does not strictly
     comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit;

          (F)  any exchange, release or non-perfection of any Collateral or
     other collateral, or any release or amendment or waiver of or consent to
     departure from the Guaranty or any other guarantee, for all or any of the
     Obligations of any Borrower in respect of the L/C Related Documents; or

          (G)  any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not
     similar to any of the foregoing, including, without limitation, any other
     circumstance that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a
     discharge of, any Borrower or a guarantor.

          SECTION 2.06.  TERMINATION OR REDUCTION OF THE COMMITMENTS.  (A)
OPTIONAL.  Any Borrower may, upon at least five Business Days' notice to the US
Administrative Agent, terminate in whole or reduce in part the unused portion of
the Letter of Credit Facility and the Unused Revolving Credit Commitments;
PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that (i) each partial reduction of a Facility shall be in an
aggregate amount of US$5,000,000 or an integral multiple of US$1,000,000 in
excess thereof and (ii) each partial reduction of the Revolving Credit Facility
shall reduce ratably the Maximum Revolving Credit Commitments of (A) the US
Lenders by an aggregate amount equal to the amount of such partial reduction,
(B) the Canadian Lenders by an aggregate amount equal to the amount of such
partial reduction, and (C) the Australian Lenders and the Risk Participants in
an aggregate amount equal to the amount of such partial reduction.  Each
reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.06(a)
shall reduce, on a dollar-for-dollar basis, the amount of the mandatory
reductions of the Revolving Credit Commitments required pursuant to Section
2.06(b)(i) in the direct order of such mandatory reductions.

          (B)  MANDATORY.

          (I)  AUTOMATIC REDUCTIONS OF COMMITMENTS.  On each date set forth
below (each such date being a "COMMITMENT REDUCTION DATE"), the Revolving Credit
Facility and the Maximum Revolving Credit Commitments of the Lenders shall be
reduced (as set forth below and without further action by or notice to any
Administrative Agent, any Lender or any Borrower) by the amount set forth
opposite such date below (as such amount may have been reduced prior to such
time pursuant to this Section 2.06):

REVOLVING COMMITMENT COMMITMENT REDUCTION REDUCTION DATE AMOUNT -------------------- -------------------- April 17, 1999 $20,000,000 April 17, 2000 $35,000,000 April 17, 2001 $45,000,000 January 29, 2002 $50,000,000
Each such reduction of the Revolving Credit Facility shall reduce ratably the Maximum Revolving Credit Commitments of (A) the US Lenders by an aggregate amount equal to the amount of such reduction, (B) the Canadian Lenders by an aggregate amount equal to the amount of such reduction, and (C) the Australian Lenders and the Risk Participants in an aggregate amount equal to the amount of such reduction.

Each such reduction of the Revolving Credit Facility shall reduce ratably the Maximum Revolving Credit Commitments of (A) the US Lenders by an aggregate amount equal to the amount of such reduction, (B) the Canadian Lenders by an aggregate amount equal to the amount of such reduction, and (C) the Australian Lenders and the Risk Participants in an aggregate amount equal to the amount of such reduction. Reductions of the Maximum Revolving Credit Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.06(b)(ii) shall reduce, on a dollar-for-dollar basis, the amount of the mandatory reductions of the Revolving Credit Commitments required pursuant to Section 2.06(b)(i) in the direct order of such mandatory reductions. (III) REDUCTIONS IN LETTER OF CREDIT FACILITY. The Letter of Credit Commitments of the Issuing Banks shall be permanently and ratably reduced from time to time on the date of each reduction in the Revolving Credit Facility by the amount, if any, by which the aggregate amount of the Letter of Credit Commitments of the US Issuing Banks, the Canadian Issuing Banks and the Australian Issuing Banks exceeds the aggregate Maximum Revolving Commitments of the US Lenders (with respect to the US Issuing Banks), the Canadian Lenders (with respect to the Canadian Issuing Banks) and the Australian Lenders and the Risk Participants (with respect to the Australian Issuing Banks) after giving effect to such reduction of the Revolving Credit Facility. SECTION 2.07. PREPAYMENTS. (A) OPTIONAL. Any Borrower may, upon at least one Business Day's (or, in the case of any prepayment of Australian Borrower Advances which are Fluctuating Rate Advances, two Business Days') notice with respect to Fluctuating Rate Advances and upon at least three Business Days' (or, in the case of any prepayment of Australian Borrower Advances which are Fixed Rate Advances, four Business Days') notice with respect to Fixed Rate Advances to the US Administrative Agent stating the proposed date and aggregate principal amount of the prepayment and the application of such prepayment, and if such notice is given such Borrower shall, prepay the outstanding aggregate principal amount of the Advances owing by such Borrower comprising part of the same Borrowing in whole or ratably in part, together with accrued interest to the date of such prepayment on the aggregate principal amount prepaid; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that (x) each partial prepayment shall be in an aggregate principal amount of US$5,000,000 (or CN$5,000,000, in the case of any prepayment of Canadian Dollar Advances, or A$5,000,000, in the case of any prepayment of Australian Dollar Advances) or an integral multiple of US$1,000,000 (or CN$1,000,000, in the case of any prepayment of Canadian Dollar Advances, or A$1,000,000, in the case of any prepayment of Australian Dollar Advances) in excess thereof, (y) no partial prepayment of Fixed Rate Advances pursuant to this Section 2.07(a) shall reduce the aggregate unpaid principal amount of Fixed Rate Advances comprising any Borrowing to less than US$5,000,000 (or A$5,000,000 if denominated in Australian Dollars or CN$5,000,000 if denominated in Canadian Dollars), and (z) if any prepayment of a Fixed Rate Advance is made on a date other than the last day of an Interest Period for such Advance, the Borrower making such prepayment shall also pay any amounts owing pursuant to Section 8.04(c). BA Obligations may not be prepaid at any time except as expressly required by, and in accordance with, Section 2.07(b). (B) MANDATORY. (I) NET CASH PROCEEDS OF CERTAIN ASSET SALES AND DEBT ISSUANCES. Each Borrower shall, on the date of receipt by such Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries of the Net Cash Proceeds from (A) the sale, lease, transfer or other disposition of any assets comprising the Core Properties permitted under Section 5.02(e) (other than (1) the sale, lease, transfer or other disposition of commodities in the ordinary course of business, and (2) any sale in connection with a sale and leaseback transaction permitted under Section 5.02(c)), or (B) the incurrence or issuance of any Debt permitted pursuant to Section 5.02(b)(ii), prepay an aggregate principal amount (or an aggregate Face Amount) of the Accommodations outstanding to such Borrower comprising part of the same Borrowings or Drawings, as the case may be, and the Letter of Credit Advances equal to the amount of such Net Cash Proceeds; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that no Borrower shall be required to make any such prepayment in connection with any transaction described in the foregoing clause (A) to the extent that (I) the aggregate amount of Net Cash Proceeds received by the Borrowers and their Subsidiaries from all such transactions in any fiscal year does not exceed US$5,000,000 (or the Equivalent thereof in any other currency) or (II) if such Net Cash Proceeds are, at the time of the transaction giving rise thereto, intended to be (and, within six months of such transaction, have been) reinvested in the business of the Borrowers and the Restricted Subsidiaries (it being understood that any Net Cash Proceeds described in this clause (II) not so reinvested as of the expiration of the applicable six month period shall be prepaid as aforesaid upon such expiration). Subject to Section 2.07(b)(iv), each such prepayment shall be applied to the Obligations under the Revolving Credit Facility of the Borrower making such prepayment as specified by such Borrower. (II) ADVANCES IN EXCESS OF COMMITMENTS; EXCHANGE RATE FLUCTUATIONS. Each Borrower shall, on the Business Day following notice from the US Administrative Agent that a prepayment under this Section 2.07(b)(ii) is required, prepay an aggregate principal amount (or an aggregate Face Amount) of the Accommodations outstanding to such Borrower comprising part of the same Borrowings or Drawings, as the case may be, and the Letter of Credit Advances equal to the amount by which (A) the sum of (x) the aggregate principal amount of the Revolving Credit Advances outstanding to such Borrower PLUS (y) the Letter of Credit Advances then outstanding in respect of Letters of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower and the aggregate Available Amount of all Letters of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower then outstanding PLUS (z) in the case of the Canadian Borrower, the aggregate Face Amount of the BA Obligations then outstanding exceeds (B) the aggregate Revolving Credit Commitments of the Appropriate Lenders (the Revolving Credit Commitment of the Non-Pro Rata Lender being deemed to be the aggregate Revolving Credit Commitments of the Risk Participants) on such Business Day (after giving effect to any permanent reduction thereof on or prior to such Business Day pursuant to Section 2.06). In addition to the foregoing, the Canadian Borrower shall, prior to April 17, 1999, on the Business Day following notice from the US Administrative Agent that a prepayment under this Section 2.07(b)(ii) is required, prepay an aggregate principal amount (or an aggregate Face Amount) of the Accommodations comprising part of the same Borrowings or Drawings, as the case may be, equal to the amount by which (I) the sum of (1) the aggregate principal amount of Canadian Borrower Advances and Letter of Credit Advances in respect of Canadian Letters of Credit then outstanding, and (2) the aggregate Face Amount of BA Obligations and the aggregate Available Amount of Canadian Letters of Credit then outstanding exceeds (II) the Canadian Borrower Sublimit on such Business Day. For purposes of determining the principal amount of any outstanding Accommodations denominated in Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, such amounts shall be calculated by the US Administrative Agent (and each such calculation shall be conclusive for purposes hereof, absent manifest error) on the basis of the Equivalent thereof in US Dollars on each Business Day and it is expressly understood and agreed that fluctuations in currency exchange rates will result in mandatory prepayments (or cash collateralization with respect to Letters of Credit) hereunder to the extent any such fluctuation results in the aggregate amount of outstanding Accommodations plus the aggregate Available Amount of outstanding Letters of Credit, in each case measured in US Dollars, being in excess of the Revolving Credit Facility measured in US Dollars. Subject to Section 2.07(b)(iv), each such prepayment shall be applied to the Obligations under the Revolving Credit Facility of the Borrower making such prepayment as specified by such Borrower. (III) CASH COLLATERALIZATION OF LETTERS OF CREDIT. (A) Each Borrower shall, on the Business Day following notice from the Appropriate Administrative Agent that cash collateralization under this Section 2.07(b)(iii) is required, pay to such Administrative Agent for deposit in a Cash Collateral Account in the control of such Administrative Agent (or, during the continuance of any Event of Default, any Cash Collateral Account) an amount sufficient to cause the aggregate amount on deposit in such Account for such purpose to equal the amount by which the aggregate Available Amount of all Letters of Credit issued by any Issuing Bank for the account of such Borrower and then outstanding exceeds the Letter of Credit Commitment of such Issuing Bank on such Business Day (after giving effect to any permanent reduction thereof on or prior to such Business Day pursuant to Section 2.06). (B) The Australian Borrower shall, upon written demand by any Australian Issuing Bank at any time on or after the date which is 90 days prior to the Termination Date, cash collateralize the Available Amount of each Australian Bank Guarantee which does not have an expiration date occurring prior to the Termination Date by depositing an amount equal to the aggregate Available Amount of all such Australian Bank Guarantees into a cash collateral account designated by the Australian Administrative Agent (and, if necessary, established for such purposes). Amounts deposited by the Australian Borrower in any such cash collateral account shall be applied to satisfy the Australian Borrower's obligations in respect of amounts drawn under any such Australian Bank Guarantee and shall, to the extent such amounts exceed at any time the aggregate Available Amount under all such Australian Bank Guarantees, be returned to the Australian Borrower. (IV) APPLICATION OF PREPAYMENTS. Each prepayment of the Revolving Credit Facility made pursuant to clause (i) or (ii) above shall be allocated to the Accommodations outstanding to the Borrower or Borrowers making such prepayment and shall be applied to such Accommodations as directed by the Borrower or Borrowers making such prepayment so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing on the date of such prepayment and, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or any applicable Borrower has not specified the application of any such prepayment, shall be applied: (A) in the case of Accommodations outstanding to the US Borrower, FIRST to prepay Letter of Credit Advances then outstanding in respect of drawings under US Letters of Credit until such Advances are paid in full, SECOND to prepay (ratably among the Lenders holding such Advances) US Borrower Advances then outstanding comprising part of the same Borrowings until such Advances are paid in full and THIRD deposited in the US Cash Collateral Account to cash collateralize 100% of the Available Amount of all US Letters of Credit then outstanding; (B) in the case of Accommodations outstanding to the Canadian Borrower, FIRST to prepay Letter of Credit Advances then outstanding in respect of drawings under Canadian Letters of Credit until such Advances are paid in full, SECOND to prepay (ratably among the Lenders holding such Advances) Canadian Borrower Advances then outstanding comprising part of the same Borrowings until such Advances are paid in full, THIRD deposited in the Canadian Cash Collateral Account to cash collateralize 100% of the Face Amount of all BA Obligations then outstanding, and FOURTH deposited in the Canadian Cash Collateral Account to cash collateralize 100% of the Available Amount of all Canadian Letters of Credit then outstanding; and (C) in the case of Accommodations outstanding to the Australian Borrower, FIRST to prepay Letter of Credit Advances then outstanding in respect of drawings under Australian Letters of Credit until such Advances are paid in full, SECOND to prepay (ratably among the Lenders holding such Advances) Australian Borrower Advances then outstanding comprising part of the same Borrowings until such Advances are paid in full, and THIRD deposited in the Australian Cash Collateral Account to cash collateralize 100% of the Available Amount of all Australian Letters of Credit then outstanding; and, in the case of prepayments of the Revolving Credit Facility required pursuant to clause (i) above, the amount remaining (if any) after the prepayment in full of the Accommodations then outstanding to the applicable Borrower and, if applicable, the 100% cash collateralization of the aggregate Available Amount of Letters of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower and, with respect to the Canadian Borrower, the aggregate Face Amount of BA Obligations then outstanding (the sum of such prepayment amounts, cash collateralization amounts and remaining amount being referred to herein as the "REDUCTION AMOUNT") may be retained by the applicable Borrower and its Subsidiaries and the Revolving Credit Facility shall be permanently reduced as set forth in Section 2.06(b)(ii) by an amount equal to the Reduction Amount. Upon the drawing of any Letter of Credit, or the Maturity Date of any BA Obligation, for which funds are on deposit in any Cash Collateral Account, such funds shall be applied to reimburse the relevant Issuing Bank or Lenders, as applicable. (V) DEPOSIT OF CERTAIN PREPAYMENTS; EFFECT OF PREPAYMENT OF BA OBLIGATION. Notwithstanding any of the other provisions of this Section 2.07(b), so long as no Default shall have occurred and be continuing, if any prepayment of Eurodollar Rate Advances or BA Obligations is required to be made under clause (i) of this Section 2.07(b) other than on the last day of the Interest Period therefor or the Maturity Date thereof, respectively, the Appropriate Borrower may, with respect to any such Eurodollar Rate Advances and BA Obligations, deposit the amount of any such prepayment otherwise required to be made hereunder in a Cash Collateral Account, as appropriate, until the last day of such Interest Period or such Maturity Date, at which time the US Administrative Agent shall be authorized (without any further action by any Borrower) to apply, or to direct the Canadian Administrative Agent or the Australian Administrative Agent to apply, such amount to the prepayment of such Advances or such BA Obligations in accordance with this Section 2.07(b). Any prepayment by the Canadian Borrower of any BA Obligations in accordance with this Section 2.07(b) shall, upon the application thereof at the applicable Maturity Date therefor, satisfy, to the extent of such application, the obligations of the Canadian Borrower under such BA Obligations to which it relates and, in the case of a Bankers' Acceptance, the Lender that has accepted such Bankers' Acceptance shall thereafter, to the extent of such application, be solely responsible for the payment thereof. (VI) PREPAYMENTS TO INCLUDE INTEREST AND BREAKAGE. All prepayments under this Section 2.07 shall be made together with accrued interest to the date of such prepayment on the principal amount prepaid. If any payment required to be made under this Section 2.07 on account of Fixed Rate Advances or BA Obligations is made other than on the last day of the applicable Interest Period therefor, the applicable Borrower shall also pay any amounts owing pursuant to Section 8.04(c). SECTION 2.08. INTEREST. (A) AVAILABILITY OF TYPES OF ADVANCES.

Each such notice of Conversion shall, within the restrictions set forth above, specify (A) the date of such Conversion (which shall be the then existing Maturity Date of such BA Obligations and shall be a Business Day), (B) the BA Obligations to be Converted and (C) if less than all of the Accommodations comprising part of any Drawing are to be Converted, the aggregate Face Amount of such Conversion.

The Canadian Borrower hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs each Canadian Lender to apply the net proceeds of each Canadian Prime Rate Advance made by such Lender pursuant to this Section 2.11(b) to the reimbursement of the BA Obligations owing to such Lender and maturing on such date. (C) MANDATORY CONVERSION. If any Default shall have occurred and be continuing or if the Canadian Borrower shall fail (i) to deliver a properly completed notice of renewal under Section 2.11(a) or a properly completed notice of Conversion under Section 2.11(b) indicating its intention to renew or to Convert any maturing BA Obligations or (ii) to reimburse the Canadian Lenders for any BA Obligations comprising part of the same Drawing pursuant to Section 2.05, the Canadian Administrative Agent will forthwith so notify the US Administrative Agent, the Canadian Borrower and the Canadian Lenders, whereupon each such BA Obligation will automatically, on the then existing Maturity Date of such BA Obligations, Convert into a Canadian Prime Rate Advance. SECTION 2.12. INCREASED COSTS, ETC.

A certificate as to the amount of such increased cost or reduction of return, submitted to the applicable Borrower by such Lender Party, shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error. Such certificate shall identify the relevant law, regulation or other circumstance pursuant to which such increased cost or reduction was incurred and shall set forth in reasonable detail the calculations used in determining the amount thereof. (b) If any Lender Party determines that compliance with any law or regulation or any directive, guideline or request from any central bank or other Governmental Authority (whether or not having the force of law) adopted or made after the date hereof affects or would affect the amount of capital required or expected to be maintained by such Lender Party or any corporation controlling such Lender Party and that the amount of such capital is increased by or based upon the existence of such Lender Party's commitment to lend, to accept, purchase and/or discount BA Obligations or to issue Letters of Credit hereunder and other commitments of such type or the purchase and/or acceptance and maintenance of the BA Obligations or the issuance or maintenance of the Letters of Credit (or similar contingent obligations), then the Borrowers shall from time to time, upon demand by such Lender Party (with a copy of such demand to the US Administrative Agent and, if different, the Appropriate Administrative Agent) but subject to Section 2.12(f), pay to the Appropriate Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender Party additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Lender Party in the light of such circumstances, to the extent that such Lender Party reasonably determines such increase in capital to be allocable to the existence of such Lender Party's commitment to lend, to accept, purchase and/or discount BA Obligations or to issue Letters of Credit hereunder, or to the acceptance, purchase, discount and/or maintenance of the BA Obligations or to the issuance or maintenance of any Letters of Credit. A certificate as to such amounts submitted to the Borrowers by such Lender Party shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error. Such certificate shall identify the relevant law, regulation or other circumstance pursuant to which such increased cost or reduction was incurred and shall set forth in reasonable detail the calculations used in determining the amount thereof. (c) If, with respect to any Fixed Rate Advances, Lenders holding not less than a majority in interest of the aggregate principal of such Fixed Rate Advances (or which would hold a majority in interest of the principal amount of any proposed Fixed Rate Advances) notify the US Administrative Agent that the Fixed Rate for any Interest Period for such Advances will not adequately reflect the cost to such Lenders of making, funding or maintaining their Fixed Rate Advances for such Interest Period, the US Administrative Agent shall forthwith so notify the Borrowers and the Appropriate Lenders (and, if such Advances are Australian Borrower Advances, the Risk Participants), whereupon (i) each such Fixed Rate Advance will automatically, on the last day of the then existing Interest Period therefor, Convert into (A) a US Base Rate Advance, in the case of a Eurodollar Rate Advance comprising part of any US Borrower Borrowing, (B) a Canadian Base Rate Advance, in the case of a Eurodollar Rate Advance comprising part of any Canadian Borrower Borrowing, and (C) an Australian Prime Rate Advance, in the case of a Fixed Rate Advance comprising part of any Australian Borrower Borrowing (and, if such Australian Borrower Borrowing was, immediately prior to such conversion, a Eurodollar Rate Advance, the principal amount of such Advance shall be immediately and automatically converted to the Equivalent thereof in Australian Dollars), and (ii) the obligation of the Lenders to make, or to Convert Advances into, Fixed Rate Advances of such Type shall be suspended until the US Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrowers that such Lenders have determined that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist. (d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any law or regulation or official directive shall make it unlawful, or any central bank or other governmental authority shall assert that it is unlawful, for any Lender or its Appropriate Lending Office to perform its obligations hereunder to make or purchase interests in any Type of Fixed Rate Advances or to continue to fund or maintain any Type of Fixed Rate Advances hereunder, then, on notice thereof and demand therefor by such Lender to each Borrower through the US Administrative Agent, (i) each Fixed Rate Advance of such Type will automatically, on the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Fixed Rate Advance (or on such earlier date as may be required by law), Convert into (A) a US Base Rate Advance, in the case of a Eurodollar Rate Advance comprising part of any US Borrower Borrowing, (B) a Canadian Base Rate Advance, in the case of a Eurodollar Rate Advance comprising part of any Canadian Borrower Borrowing, and (C) an Australian Prime Rate Advance, in the case of a Fixed Rate Advance comprising part of any Australian Borrower Borrowing (and, if such Australian Borrower Borrowing was, immediately prior to such conversion, a Eurodollar Rate Advance, the principal amount of such Advance shall be immediately and automatically converted to the Equivalent thereof in Australian Dollars), and (ii) the obligation of the Lenders to make, or to Convert Advances into, Fixed Rate Advances of such Type shall be suspended until the US Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrowers that such Lender has determined that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist. (e) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if the introduction of or any change in the interpretation of any law or regulation (including, without limitation, any change in acceptance limits imposed on any Lender) shall make it unlawful, or any central bank or other governmental authority shall assert that it is unlawful, for any Lender or any of their respective BA Lending Offices to perform its obligations hereunder to complete and accept Drafts, to purchase Bankers' Acceptances or BA Equivalent Notes or to continue to fund or maintain BA Obligations hereunder, then, upon notice thereof and demand therefor by such Lender to the Canadian Borrower through the US Administrative Agent (i) an amount equal to the aggregate Face Amount of all BA Obligations outstanding at such time shall, upon such demand (which shall only be made if deemed necessary by the applicable Lender to comply with applicable law), be deposited by the Canadian Borrower into the Canadian Cash Collateral Account until the Maturity Date of each such BA Obligation, (ii) upon the Maturity Date of any BA Obligation in respect of which any such deposit has been made, the US Administrative Agent shall be, and hereby is, authorized (without notice to or any further action by any Borrower) to apply, or to direct the Canadian Administrative Agent to apply, such amount (or the applicable portion thereof) to the reimbursement of such BA Obligation and (iii) the obligation of the Canadian Lenders to complete and accept Drafts and/or to purchase Bankers' Acceptances or BA Equivalent Notes shall be suspended until the US Administrative Agent shall notify the Canadian Borrower that such Lender has determined that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist. (f) No Lender Party shall be entitled to compensation under this Section 2.12 for any costs incurred or reductions suffered with respect to any event or circumstance unless such Lender Party shall have notified PGI in writing, not more than 120 days after the date an officer of such Lender Party responsible for the administration of this Agreement becomes aware, or reasonably should have become aware, of such event or circumstance, that it will demand compensation for such costs or reductions. SECTION 2.13. PAYMENTS AND COMPUTATIONS. (a) (i) Except as expressly set forth in the following clauses (ii) and (iii), each Borrower shall make each payment hereunder and under the Notes, irrespective of any right of counterclaim or set-off (except as otherwise provided in Section 2.17), not later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) (or, with respect to amounts payable to the Australian Administrative Agent, not later than 12:00 noon (Sydney time)) on the day when due in US Dollars to the Appropriate Administrative Agent at the Appropriate Administrative Agent's Account in same day funds; (ii) the Canadian Borrower shall make each payment hereunder and under the Notes with respect to principal of and interest on any Canadian Borrower Advances denominated in Canadian Dollars and with respect to BA Obligations and with respect to fees relating to Letters of Credit denominated in Canadian Dollars, irrespective of any right of counterclaim or set-off (except as otherwise provided in Section 2.17), not later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) on the day when due in Canadian Dollars to the Canadian Administrative Agent at the Appropriate Administrative Agent's Account in same day funds; and (iii) the Australian Borrower shall make each payment hereunder and under the Notes with respect to principal of and interest on any Australian Borrower Advances denominated in Australian Dollars and with respect to fees relating to Letters of Credit denominated in Australian Dollars, irrespective of any right of counterclaim or set-off (except as otherwise provided in Section 2.17 and except that fees payable to any Risk Participant under Section 2.09 shall be paid directly to such Risk Participant by 12:00 noon (New York City time) on the day when due in the same currency as the Obligations to which such fees relate), not later than 12:00 noon (Sydney time) on the day when due in Australian Dollars to the Australian Administrative Agent at the Appropriate Administrative Agent's Account in same day funds. Each Administrative Agent to which any such payment is made will promptly thereafter cause like funds to be distributed (A) if such payment by any Borrower is in respect of principal, interest, Face Amount, commitment fees or any other Obligation then payable hereunder or under the Notes to more than one Lender Party, to such Lender Parties for the account of their respective Appropriate Lending Offices ratably in accordance with the amounts of such respective Obligations then payable to such Lender Parties (it being understood that interest payments received with respect to any Non-Pro Rata Advance as to which any Risk Participant has purchased its Adjusted Pro Rata Share pursuant to Section 2.01(b)(ii) shall be distributed to the Non- Pro Rata Lender and each such Risk Participant in accordance with the relative periods during which the Non-Pro Rata Lender and such Risk Participant held such Advance) and (B) if such payment by any Borrower is in respect of any Obligation then payable hereunder to one Lender Party, to such Lender Party for the account of its Appropriate Lending Office, in each case to be applied in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Upon acceptance of an Assignment and Acceptance by the US Administrative Agent and recording of the information contained therein in the Register pursuant to Section 8.07(d), from and after the effective date of such Assignment and Acceptance, each Administrative Agent shall make all payments hereunder and under the Notes in respect of the interest assigned thereby to the Lender Party assignee thereunder, and the parties to such Assignment and Acceptance shall make all appropriate adjustments in such payments for periods prior to such effective date directly between themselves. (b) If any Administrative Agent receives funds for application to the Obligations under the Loan Documents under circumstances for which the Loan Documents do not specify the Advances or the Facility to which, or the manner in which, such funds are to be applied, such Administrative Agent may, but shall not be obligated to, elect to distribute such funds to each Lender Party ratably in accordance with the aggregate principal amount of all Advances and the aggregate Face Amount of BA Obligations outstanding at such time and the aggregate Available Amount of all Letters of Credit outstanding at such time, in repayment or prepayment of such of the outstanding Accommodations or other Obligations owed to such Lender Party as the US Administrative Agent shall direct. (c) Each Borrower hereby authorizes each Lender Party, if and to the extent payment owed to such Lender Party is not made when due hereunder or, in the case of a Lender, under the Note held by such Lender, to charge from time to time against any or all of the Borrower's accounts with such Lender Party any amount so due. (d) All computations of interest, fees and Letter of Credit commissions and of the BA Rate shall be made by the Appropriate Administrative Agent on the basis of a year of 365 days (or, in the case of a leap year, 366 days), except with respect to computations of interest regarding Eurodollar Rate Advances and Canadian Base Rate Advances, which shall be made by the Appropriate Administrative Agent on the basis of a year of 360 days, in each case for the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring in the period for which such interest, fees or commissions are payable. Each determination by any Administrative Agent of an interest rate, fee or commission hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error. For purposes of this Agreement, whenever interest is calculated on the basis of a year of 360 days, each rate of interest determined pursuant to such calculation expressed as an annual rate for the purposes of the Interest Act (Canada) is equivalent to such rate so determined multiplied by the actual number of days in the calendar year in which the same is to be ascertained (whether 365 or 366, as the case may be) and divided by 360. (e) Whenever any payment hereunder or under the Notes or in respect of any BA Obligation shall be stated to be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day, and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the computation of payment of interest or commitment fees, as the case may be; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, if such extension would cause payment of interest on or principal of Eurodollar Rate Advances to be made in the next following calendar month, such payment shall be made on the next preceding Business Day. (f) Unless the Appropriate Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Borrower owing or otherwise obligated to make any payment hereunder prior to the date on which such payment is due to any Lender Party hereunder that such Borrower will not make such payment in full, such Administrative Agent may assume that such Borrower has made such payment in full to such Administrative Agent on such date and such Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, cause to be distributed to each such Lender Party on such due date an amount equal to the amount then due such Lender Party. If and to the extent such Borrower shall not have so made such payment in full to such Administrative Agent, each such Lender Party shall repay to such Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such amount distributed to such Lender Party together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is distributed to such Lender Party until the date such Lender Party repays such amount to such Administrative Agent, at the Applicable Interbank Rate. SECTION 2.14. TAXES. (a) Any and all payments by or on behalf of the Borrowers hereunder or under the Notes or in respect of any BA Obligation shall be made, in accordance with Section 2.13, free and clear of and without deduction for any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings, and all liabilities with respect thereto, EXCLUDING (i) in the case of each Lender Party, net income taxes that are imposed by the United States and net income taxes (or franchise taxes imposed in lieu thereof) that are imposed on such Lender Party by the state or foreign jurisdiction under the laws of which such Lender Party is organized or any political subdivision thereof, (ii) in the case of each Lender, net income taxes (or franchise taxes imposed in lieu thereof) that are imposed on such Lender by the state or foreign jurisdiction of such Lender's Appropriate Lending Office or any political subdivision thereof, (iii) in the case of each Lender Party, net income taxes (or franchise taxes imposed in lieu thereof) imposed on such Lender Party as a result of a present or former connection between such Lender Party and the jurisdiction of the governmental authority imposing such tax or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein (other than any such connection arising solely from such Lender Party having executed, delivered or performed its obligations or received a payment under, or enforced, this Agreement, any Note, any other Loan Document or any BA Obligation) and, (iv) in the case of each Lender Party, any tax, levy, impost, deduction, charge or withholding, and all liabilities with respect thereto, payable by that Lender Party by reason of any cash collateralization made by such Lender Party pursuant to Section 2.01(b)(iii) or Section 2.04(e), but not excluding any such tax or other amount imposed pursuant to Division 15 of Part III of the ITAA on or with respect to any risk participation fee, commitment fee, letter of credit fee or other amount paid or payable to a Risk Participant from any Borrower pursuant to this Agreement or under the Notes (all such non-excluded taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges, withholdings and liabilities in respect of payments hereunder or under the Notes or in respect of a BA Obligation being hereinafter referred to as "TAXES"). If any Taxes are required to be withheld or deducted by any Person from any amounts payable to any Lender Party hereunder or under any Note or in respect of any BA Obligation, (A) the sum payable by the Appropriate Borrower in respect of any such amount shall be increased as may be necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.14) such Lender Party receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (B) such Borrower shall make such deductions and (C) such Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant taxation or other authority in accordance with applicable law. In the case of any Taxes, or other amounts, required to be paid, withheld, deducted or otherwise imposed in each case pursuant to Division 15 of Part III of the ITAA with respect to any amounts paid or payable to any Risk Participant, the Australian Borrower shall pay to the relevant Risk Participant on demand, an amount that (after any taxes, deductions or other amounts applicable thereto or to additional sums payable under this Section 2.14) is equal to the aggregate amount of any taxes or other liability (including interest, penalties, fines, additions to tax, interest and expenses) imposed on or paid by the relevant Risk Participant as a result of its failure to so pay, withhold or deduct. If any Taxes are assessed on the taxable income of any Lender Party under Division 15 of Part III of the ITAA in connection with payments made under this Agreement, such Lender Party will promptly notify the Australian Borrower. If the Australian Borrower has not paid the Taxes assessed to the Australian taxation office, the Australian Borrower shall pay to that Lender Party an amount equal to the amount of Taxes assessed. (b) In addition, the Borrowers shall pay any present or future stamp, documentary, excise, property or similar taxes, charges or levies that arise from any payment made or receipt hereunder or under the Notes or in respect of any BA Obligation or from the execution, delivery or registration of, performing under, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement, the Notes, any BA Obligation or any other Loan Document, including without limitation any purchase of any portion of a Non-Pro Rata Advance pursuant to Section 2.01(b)(ii) or any purchase of any portion of a Letter of Credit Advance pursuant to Section 2.04(c) or any assignment pursuant to Section 8.07 (hereinafter referred to as "OTHER TAXES"). (c) The Borrowers shall indemnify each Lender Party for the full amount of Taxes and Other Taxes, and for the full amount of taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section 2.14, imposed on or paid by such Lender Party and any liability (including penalties, fines, additions to tax, interest and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto. This indemnification shall be made within 30 days from the date such Lender Party makes written demand therefor, but in no event shall such indemnification be required to be made prior to 15 days before the earlier of (i) the date such Lender Party pays such Taxes or other Taxes or (ii) the date such Taxes or Other Taxes are due to the relevant taxing authority. (d) Within 30 days after the date of any payment of Taxes, the Borrower making such payment shall furnish to the US Administrative Agent, at its address referred to in Section 8.02, the original receipt of payment thereof or a certified copy of such receipt. In the case of any payment hereunder or under the Notes or in respect of any BA Obligation by or on behalf of any Borrower (i) through an account or branch outside the United States, in the case of the US Borrower; Canada, in the case of the Canadian Borrower; or Australia, in the case of the Australian Borrower, or (ii) by a payor that is not a United States person, in the case of the US Borrower; a person Resident in Canada, in the case of the Canadian Borrower; or a person Resident in Australia, in the case of the Australian Borrower, if such Borrower determines that no Taxes are payable in respect thereof, such Borrower shall furnish, or shall cause such payor to furnish, to each Administrative Agent, at such address, an opinion of counsel acceptable to the Administrative Agents stating that such payment is exempt from Taxes. For purposes of this subsection (d) and subsection (e), the terms "UNITED STATES" and "UNITED STATES PERSON" shall have the meanings specified in Section 7701 of the Internal Revenue Code, the terms "CANADA" and "RESIDENT IN CANADA" shall have the meanings they have for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and the terms "AUSTRALIA" and "RESIDENT IN AUSTRALIA" shall have the meanings they have for Australian income tax purposes. (e) Each US Lender and each US Issuing Bank organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside the United States shall, on or prior to the date of its execution and delivery of this Agreement in the case of each such Initial Lender or Initial Issuing Bank, as the case may be, and on the date of the Assignment and Acceptance pursuant to which it became a Lender Party in the case of each other such Lender Party, and from time to time thereafter as requested in writing by the US Borrower or the US Administrative Agent (but only so long as such Lender Party remains lawfully able to do so), provide each of the US Administrative Agent and the US Borrower with two original Internal Revenue Service forms 1001 or 4224 or (in the case of a US Lender or US Issuing Bank that has certified in writing to the US Administrative Agent that it is not a "bank" as defined in Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Internal Revenue Code) form W-8 (and, if such Lender or Issuing Bank delivers a form W-8, a certificate representing that such Lender Party is not a "bank" for purposes of Section 881(c) of the Internal Revenue Code, is not a 10-percent shareholder (within the meaning of Section 871(h)(3)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code) of any Borrower and is not a controlled foreign corporation related to any Borrower (within the meaning of Section 864(d)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code)), as appropriate, or any successor or other form prescribed by the Internal Revenue Service, certifying that such Lender or Issuing Bank is exempt from or entitled to a reduced rate of United States interest withholding tax on payments pursuant to this Agreement or the Notes or, in the case of a Lender Party providing a form W-8, certifying that such Lender Party is a foreign corporation, partnership, estate or trust and, if required, in the case of any other US Lender, an Internal Revenue Service form W-9, or any successor form, certifying that such Lender Party is entitled to an exemption from United States backup withholding tax. If the forms provided by any such Lender Party at the time such Lender Party first becomes a party to this Agreement indicates a United States interest withholding tax rate in excess of zero, withholding tax at such rate shall be considered excluded from Taxes unless and until such Lender Party provides the appropriate form certifying that a lesser rate applies, whereupon withholding tax at such lesser rate only shall be considered excluded from Taxes for periods governed by such form; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, if at the date of the Assignment and Acceptance pursuant to which a Lender Party becomes a party to this Agreement, the Lender Party assignor was entitled to payments under subsection (a) in respect of United States withholding tax with respect to interest paid at such date, then, to such extent, the term Taxes shall include (in addition to withholding taxes that may be imposed in the future or other amounts otherwise includable in Taxes) United States withholding tax, if any, applicable with respect to the Lender Party assignee on such date. (f) For any period with respect to which a US Lender or US Issuing Bank has failed to provide the US Borrower with the appropriate form described in subsection (e) (OTHER THAN if such failure is due to a change in law occurring after the date on which a form originally was required to be provided or if such form otherwise is not required under subsection (e)), such Lender Party shall not be entitled to indemnification under subsection (a) or (c) with respect to Taxes imposed by the United States by reason of such failure; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that should a Lender Party become subject to Taxes because of its failure to deliver a form required hereunder, the Borrowers shall take such steps as such Lender Party shall reasonably request to assist such Lender Party to recover such Taxes. (g) The Australian Borrower acknowledges that Section 261 of the ITAA may render void its obligation to make a payment under this Section 2.14 (or failure by a Guarantor to make a payment under any clause equivalent to this Section 2.14 in any guarantee and indemnity). However, the Australian Borrower warrants that even if this is the case, and it would not otherwise be obliged to make a payment under this Section 2.14, it will make such payment as contemplated by this Section 2.14 and that it is in its interests to do so. The Australian Borrower acknowledges that each Lender Party relies on the warranty in this Section 2.14(g) in entering into this Agreement and that breach of such warranty is to the detriment of each Lender Party. Failure by the Australian Borrower to make a payment under this Section 2.14 does not constitute an Event of Default under Section 6.01(a)(i) or (ii) or under Section 6.01(d). The Australian Borrower waives any right it may have to reimbursement of money paid under this Section 2.14(g) (including any payment made in accordance with the warranty contained in this Section 2.14(g)) and also releases each Lender Party from any claim the Australian Borrower may have against such Lender Party to refund or repay amounts so paid, whether that right or claim arises by reason of the obligations under this Section 2.14 being void under section 261 of the ITAA or by reason of money paid under mistake of any nature as to the extent of the Australian Borrowers' obligations having regard to section 261 or for any other reason relating to laws as to insolvency. (h) In the event that an additional payment is made under Section 2.14(a) or (c) for the account of any Lender and such Lender determines that it has received or been granted a refund or a credit (other than a foreign tax credit) against or release or remission for, or repayment of, any tax paid or payable by it in respect of or calculated with reference to the deduction or withholding giving rise to such payment, such Lender shall, to the extent that it can do so without prejudice to the retention of the amount of such refund, credit, relief, remission or repayment, pay to the Borrower that made such additional payment such amount as such Lender shall have determined to be attributable to such deduction or withholding and which will leave such Lender (after such payment) in no better or worse position than it would have been in if such Borrower had not been required to make such deduction or withholding. If any Lender shall become aware that it is entitled to receive a refund and that the receipt of such refund would give rise to an obligation under this Section 2.14(h) to pay an amount to any Borrower, such Lender shall, within a reasonable time of becoming so aware, notify such Borrower of the availability of such refund and shall, upon written request of such Borrower, make reasonable efforts, at such Borrower's expense, to obtain such refund. Nothing herein contained shall interfere with the right of each Lender to arrange its tax affairs in whatever manner it thinks fit nor oblige any Lender to claim any tax credit (except as expressly provided in the preceding sentence) or to disclose any information relating to its tax affairs or any computations in respect thereof. Nothing herein contained shall require any Lender to do anything that would prejudice its ability to benefit from any other credits, reliefs, remissions or repayments to which it may be entitled. (i) Any Lender Party claiming any additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section 2.14 agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to file any certificate or document reasonably requested by any Borrower or to change the jurisdiction of its Appropriate Lending Office if filing such certificate or document or making such change would avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, any such additional amounts that may thereafter accrue and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender Party, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender Party. (j) Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of the Borrowers, the agreements and obligations of the Borrowers contained in this Section 2.14 and in Sections 8.04(c) shall survive the expiration of this Agreement, including the payment in full of principal and interest hereunder, under the Notes and in respect of any BA Obligation or Letter of Credit. SECTION 2.15. SHARING OF PAYMENTS, ETC. If any Lender Party shall obtain at any time any payment (whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of set-off, or otherwise) (a) on account of Obligations due and payable to such Lender Party hereunder and under the Notes and under any BA Obligations at such time in excess of its ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Obligations due and payable to such Lender Party at such time to (ii) the aggregate amount of such Obligations due and payable to all Lender Parties hereunder and under the Notes and under any BA Obligations at such time) of payments on account of such Obligations due and payable to all Lender Parties hereunder and under the Notes and under any BA Obligations at such time obtained by all the Lender Parties at such time or (b) on account of Obligations owing (but not due and payable) to such Lender Party hereunder and under the Notes and under any BA Obligations at such time in excess of its ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such Obligations owing to such Lender Party at such time to (ii) the aggregate amount of such Obligations owing (but not due and payable) to all Lender Parties hereunder and under the Notes and under any BA Obligations at such time) of payments on account of such Obligations owing (but not due and payable) to all Lender Parties hereunder and under the Notes and under any BA Obligations at such time obtained by all of the applicable Lender Parties at such time, such Lender Party shall forthwith purchase from the other applicable Lender Parties such participations in such Obligations due and payable or owing to them, as the case may be, as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender Party to share the excess payment ratably with each of them; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Lender Party, such purchase from each other applicable Lender Party shall be rescinded and such other applicable Lender Party shall repay to the purchasing Lender Party the purchase price to the extent of such applicable Lender Party's ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the purchase price paid to such applicable Lender Party to (ii) the aggregate purchase price paid to all applicable Lender Parties) of such recovery together with an amount equal to such applicable Lender Party's ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such other applicable Lender Party's required repayment to (ii) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Lender Party) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Lender Party in respect of the total amount so recovered. The Borrowers agree that any Lender Party so purchasing a participation from another Lender Party pursuant to this Section 2.15 may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including the right of set-off) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender Party were the direct creditor of the Borrowers in the amount of such participation. SECTION 2.16. USE OF PROCEEDS. The proceeds of the Accommodations shall be available (and the Borrowers agree to use such proceeds and Letters of Credit) to prepay certain existing indebtedness (other than any indebtedness raised to fund (directly or indirectly) the acquisition of shares in the Australian Borrower), to provide working capital and for other general corporate purposes; PROVIDED that (i) proceeds of Accommodations may not be used to finance the acquisition or attempted acquisition of any Person that has not (or the Board of Directors of which has not) consented to such acquisition prior to any such use of proceeds, and (ii) proceeds of Australian Borrower Advances which are Eurodollar Rate Advances may only be used in the Australian Borrower's Australian business. SECTION 2.17. DEFAULTING LENDERS. (a) In the event that, at any one time, (i) any Lender Party shall be a Defaulting Lender, (ii) such Defaulting Lender shall owe a Defaulted Accommodation to any Borrower and (iii) such Borrower shall be required to make any payment hereunder or under any other Loan Document to or for the account of such Defaulting Lender, then such Borrower may, so long as no Default shall have occurred and be continuing at such time and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, set off and otherwise apply the Obligation of such Borrower to make such payment to or for the account of such Defaulting Lender against the obligation of such Defaulting Lender to make such Defaulted Accommodation. In the event that, on any date, such Borrower shall so set off and otherwise apply its obligation to make any such payment against the obligation of such Defaulting Lender to make any such Defaulted Accommodation on or prior to such date, the amount so set off and otherwise applied by such Borrower shall constitute for all purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents an Accommodation by such Defaulting Lender made on the date under the Facility pursuant to which such Defaulted Accommodation was originally required to have been made pursuant to Section 2.01, 2.02 or 2.03. Such Accommodation shall be considered, for all purposes of this Agreement, to comprise part of the Borrowing or Drawing in connection with which such Defaulted Accommodation was originally required to have been made pursuant to Section 2.01, 2.02 or 2.03 and shall be a US Base Rate Advance (if such Borrowing is a US Borrower Borrowing), a Canadian Base Rate Advance (if such Borrowing is a Canadian Borrower Borrowing denominated in US Dollars), a Canadian Prime Rate Advance (in respect of any such Drawing or if such Borrowing is a Canadian Borrower Borrowing denominated in Canadian Dollars) or an Australian Prime Rate Advance (if such Borrowing is an Australian Borrower Borrowing (but the amount of such Accommodation, if denominated in US Dollars, shall be immediately and automatically converted to the Equivalent thereof in Australian Dollars)), in each case even if the other Accommodations comprising such Borrowing or Drawing shall be Fixed Rate Advances on the date such Accommodation is deemed to be made pursuant to this subsection (a). Each Borrower shall notify the US Administrative Agent at any time such Borrower exercises its right of set-off pursuant to this subsection (a) and shall set forth in such notice (A) the name of the Defaulting Lender and the Defaulted Accommodation required to be made by such Defaulting Lender and (B) the amount set off and otherwise applied in respect of such Defaulted Accommodation pursuant to this subsection (a). Any portion of such payment otherwise required to be made by such Borrower to or for the account of such Defaulting Accommodation which is paid by such Borrower, after giving effect to the amount set off and otherwise applied by any Borrower pursuant to this subsection (a), shall be applied by the Appropriate Administrative Agent as specified in Section 2.17(b) or (c). (b) In the event that, at any one time, (i) any Lender Party shall be a Defaulting Lender, (ii) such Defaulting Lender shall owe a Defaulted Amount to any Administrative Agent or any of the other Lender Parties and (iii) any Borrower shall make any payment hereunder or under any other Loan Document to any Administrative Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender, then the Administrative Agent receiving such payment may, on its behalf or on behalf of such other Lender Parties and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, apply at such time the amount so paid by such Borrower to or for the account of such Defaulting Lender to the payment of each such Defaulted Amount to the extent required to pay such Defaulted Amount. In the event that the Administrative Agent receiving any such payment shall so apply any such amount to the payment of any such Defaulted Amount on any date, the amount so applied by such Administrative Agent shall constitute for all purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents payment, to such extent, of such Defaulted Amount on such date. Any such amount so applied by such Administrative Agent shall be retained by such Administrative Agent or distributed by such Administrative Agent to such other Lender Parties, ratably in accordance with the respective portions of such Defaulted Amounts payable at such time to such Administrative Agent and such other Lender Parties and, if the amount of such payment made by such Borrower shall at such time be insufficient to pay all such Defaulted Amounts owing at such time to such Administrative Agent and the other Lender Parties, in the following order of priority: (i) FIRST, to each Administrative Agent for any such Defaulted Amount then owing to the Administrative Agents, ratably in accordance with such respective Defaulted Amounts then owing to such Administrative Agents; (ii) SECOND, to each Issuing Bank for any such Defaulted Amounts owing to such Issuing Bank, ratably in accordance with such respective Defaulted Amounts then owing to such Issuing Banks; (iii) THIRD, to the Non-Pro Rata Lender for any such Defaulted Amounts owing to the Non-Pro Rata Lender; and (iv) FOURTH, to any other Lender Parties for any such Defaulted Amounts then owing to such other Lender Parties, ratably in accordance with such respective Defaulted Amounts then owing to such other Lender Parties. Any portion of such amount paid by any Borrower for the account of such Defaulting Lender remaining, after giving effect to the amount applied by any Administrative Agent pursuant to this subsection (b), shall be applied by such Administrative Agent as specified in subsection (c) of this Section 2.17. (c) In the event that, at any one time, (i) any Lender Party shall be a Defaulting Lender, (ii) such Defaulting Lender shall not owe a Defaulted Advance or a Defaulted Amount and (iii) any Borrower, any Administrative Agent or any other Lender Party shall be required to pay or distribute any amount hereunder or under any other Loan Document to or for the account of such Defaulting Lender, then such Borrower or such other Lender Party shall pay such amount to the Appropriate Administrative Agent to be held by such Administrative Agent, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in escrow or such Administrative Agent shall, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, hold in escrow such amount otherwise held by it. Any funds held by any Administrative Agent in escrow under this subsection (c) shall be deposited by such Administrative Agent in an account in the name and under the control of such Administrative Agent, but subject to the provisions of this Section 2.17(c). The terms applicable to such account, including the rate of interest payable with respect to the credit balance of such account from time to time, shall be Citibank's standard terms applicable to escrow accounts maintained with it. Any interest credited to such account from time to time shall be held by the US Administrative Agent in escrow under, and applied by the US Administrative Agent from time to time in accordance with the provisions of, this Section 2.17(c). The US Administrative Agent shall, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, apply all funds so held in escrow from time to time to the extent necessary to make any Accommodations required to be made by such Defaulting Lender and to pay any amount payable by such Defaulting Lender hereunder and under the other Loan Documents to the US Administrative Agent or any other Lender Party, as and when such Accommodations or amounts are required to be made or paid and, if the amount so held in escrow shall at any time be insufficient to make and pay all such Accommodations and amounts required to be made or paid at such time, in the following order of priority: (i) FIRST, to the Administrative Agents for any amount then due and payable by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agents hereunder, ratably in accordance with such respective amounts then due and payable to the Administrative Agents; (ii) SECOND, to each Issuing Bank for any amount due and payable to such Issuing Bank by such Defaulting Lender, ratably in accordance with such respective amounts then due and payable to such Issuing Banks; (iii) THIRD, to the Non-Pro Rata Lender for any amounts then due and payable to the Non-Pro Rata Lender by such Defaulting Lender; (iv) FOURTH, to any other Lender Parties for any amount then due and payable by such Defaulting Lender to such other Lender Parties hereunder, ratably in accordance with such respective amounts then due and payable to such other Lender Parties; and (v) FIFTH, to the Borrowers for any Accommodation then required to be made by such Defaulting Lender pursuant to a Commitment of such Defaulting Lender, ratably in accordance with the respective amounts of any Accommodations then required to be made to the Borrowers by such Defaulting Lender. In the event that any Lender Party that is a Defaulting Lender shall, at any time, cease to be a Defaulting Lender, any funds held by the US Administrative Agent in escrow at such time with respect to such Lender Party shall be distributed by such Administrative Agent to such Lender Party and applied by such Lender Party to the Obligations owing to such Lender Party at such time under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents ratably in accordance with the respective amounts of such Obligations outstanding at such time. (d) The rights and remedies against a Defaulting Lender under this Section 2.17 are in addition to other rights and remedies that any Borrower may have against such Defaulting Lender with respect to any Defaulted Accommodation and that any Administrative Agent or any Lender Party may have against such Defaulting Lender with respect to any Defaulted Amount. ARTICLE III CONDITIONS OF LENDING SECTION 3.01. CONDITIONS PRECEDENT TO INITIAL EXTENSION OF CREDIT. The obligation of each Lender to make an Advance or of any Issuing Bank to issue a Letter of Credit on the occasion of the Initial Extension of Credit hereunder is subject to the satisfaction of the following conditions precedent before or concurrently with the Initial Extension of Credit: (A) CAPITAL STOCK OF SUBSIDIARIES. PGI shall directly or indirectly own 100% of the capital stock of PGC, PGA and each of PGI's other Subsidiaries listed on Schedule 4.01(b), in each case free and clear of all Liens (other than Liens created by the Collateral Documents). (B) SURVIVING DEBT; EXISTING CREDIT AGREEMENTS. The Lender Parties shall be satisfied that all Existing Debt, other than the Debt identified on Schedule 3.01(b) (the "SURVIVING DEBT"), has been prepaid, redeemed or defeased in full or otherwise satisfied and extinguished.

SECTION 7.02. AGENT'S RELIANCE, ETC. Neither any Administrative Agent, any Collateral Agent nor any of their respective directors, officers, agents or employees shall be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it or them under or in connection with the Loan Documents, except for its or their own gross negligence or willful misconduct.

Each Lender Party also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon any Administrative Agent, any Collateral Agent or any other Lender Party and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement. SECTION 7.05. INDEMNIFICATION. (a) Each Lender Party severally agrees to indemnify each Administrative Agent and each Collateral Agent (to the extent not promptly reimbursed by the Borrowers) from and against such Lender Party's ratable share (determined as provided below) of any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever that may be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against such Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent in any way relating to or arising out of the Loan Documents or any action taken or omitted by such Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent under the Loan Documents; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that no Lender Party shall be liable for any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting from such Administrative Agent's or such Collateral Agent's gross negligence or willful misconduct. Without limitation of the foregoing, each Lender Party agrees to reimburse each Administrative Agent and each Collateral Agent promptly upon demand for such Lender Party's ratable share of any costs and expenses (including, without limitation, fees and expenses of counsel) payable by any Borrower under Section 8.04, to the extent that such Administrative Agent or such Collateral Agent is not promptly reimbursed for such costs and expenses by such Borrower. For purposes of this Section 7.05(a), the Lender Parties' respective ratable shares of any amount shall be determined, at any time, according to the sum of (a) the aggregate principal amount of the Advances and Face Amount of the BA Obligations outstanding at such time and owing to the respective Lender Parties, (b) with respect to each Lender Party, its ratable share (determined as set forth in Section 2.04(c)) of the aggregate Available Amount of all Letters of Credit outstanding at such time as to which such Lender Party has a contingent obligation to purchase Letter of Credit Advances pursuant to Section 2.04(c) (except that, for purposes of this Section 7.05(a), the ratable share of the Non-Pro Rata Lender shall be allocated to the Risk Participants in accordance with their respective Adjusted Pro Rata Shares), and (c) their respective Unused Revolving Credit Commitments at such time; PROVIDED, that the aggregate principal amount of Letter of Credit Advances owing to any Issuing Bank shall be considered to be owed to the Appropriate Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective obligations to purchase such Letter of Credit Advances as set forth in Section 2.04(c) (except that, for purposes of this Section 7.05(a), the ratable share of the Non-Pro Rata Lender shall be allocated to the Risk Participants in accordance with their respective Adjusted Pro Rata Shares) and the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Non-Pro Rata Advances shall be considered to be owing to the Risk Participants in accordance with their respective Adjusted Pro Rata Shares.

The failure of any Lender Party to reimburse any Administrative Agent or any Collateral Agent promptly upon demand for such Lender Party's ratable share of any amount required to be paid by such Lender Party to such Administrative Agent as provided herein shall not relieve any other Lender Party of its obligation hereunder to reimburse such Administrative Agent or such Collateral Agent for its ratable share of such amount, but no Lender Party shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender Party to reimburse such Administrative Agent or such Collateral Agent for such other Lender Party's ratable share of such amount. Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of any Lender Party hereunder, the agreement and obligations of each Lender Party contained in this Section 7.05(a) shall survive the payment in full of principal, interest and all other amounts payable hereunder and under the other Loan Documents. (b) Each Lender Party severally agrees to indemnify each Issuing Bank (to the extent not promptly reimbursed by the Borrowers) from and against such Lender Party's ratable share (determined as provided below) of any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever that may be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against such Issuing Bank in any way relating to or arising out of the Loan Documents or any action taken or omitted by such Issuing Bank under the Loan Documents; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that no Lender Party shall be liable for any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements resulting from such Issuing Bank's gross negligence or willful misconduct. Without limitation of the foregoing, each Lender Party agrees to reimburse such Issuing Bank promptly upon demand for its ratable share of any costs and expenses (including, without limitation, fees and expenses of counsel) payable by any Borrower under Section 8.04, to the extent that such Issuing Bank is not promptly reimbursed for such costs and expenses by such Borrower. For purposes of this Section 7.05(b), the Lender Parties' respective ratable shares of any amount shall be determined, at any time, according to the sum of (a) the aggregate principal amount of the Advances and Face Amount of the BA Obligations outstanding at such time and owing to the respective Lender Parties, (b) with respect to each Lender Party, its ratable share (determined as set forth in Section 2.04(c)) of the aggregate Available Amount of all Letters of Credit outstanding at such time as to which such Lender Party has a contingent obligation to purchase Letter of Credit Advances pursuant to Section 2.04(c) (except that, for purposes of this Section 7.05(b), the ratable share of the Non-Pro Rata Lender shall be allocated to the Risk Participants in accordance with their respective Adjusted Pro Rata Shares), PLUS (c) their respective Unused Revolving Credit Commitments at such time; PROVIDED that the aggregate principal amount of Letter of Credit Advances owing to any Issuing Bank shall be considered to be owed to the Appropriate Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective obligations to purchase such Letter of Credit Advances as set forth in Section 2.04(c) (except that, for purposes of this Section 7.05(b), the ratable share of the Non-Pro Rata Lender shall be allocated to the Risk Participants in accordance with their respective Adjusted Pro Rata Shares) and the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Non-Pro Rata Advances shall be considered to be owing to the Risk Participants in accordance with their respective Adjusted Pro Rata Shares. In the event that any Defaulted Advance shall be owing by any Defaulting Lender at any time, such Lender Party's Commitment with respect to the Facility under which such Defaulted Advance was required to have been made shall be considered to be unused for purposes of this Section 7.05(b) to the extent of the amount of such Defaulted Advance. The failure of any Lender Party to reimburse such Issuing Bank promptly upon demand for its ratable share of any amount required to be paid by the Lender Parties to such Issuing Bank as provided herein shall not relieve any other Lender Party of its obligation hereunder to reimburse such Issuing Bank for its ratable share of such amount, but no Lender Party shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender Party to reimburse such Issuing Bank for such other Lender Party's ratable share of such amount. Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of any Lender Party hereunder, the agreement and obligations of each Lender Party contained in this Section 7.05(b) shall survive the payment in full of principal, interest and all other amounts payable hereunder and under the other Loan Documents. (c) (i) Each Risk Participant agrees to indemnify the Non-Pro Rata Lender (to the extent not promptly reimbursed by the Australian Borrower in accordance with Section 2.14(a) and (c)) for the full amount of any taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges, withholdings or other amounts of any kind (including penalties, fines, additions to tax, interest, expenses or any other liabilities) imposed on or paid by the Non-Pro Rata Lender as a result of the failure of the Non-Pro Rata Lender to pay, withhold or deduct an amount required to be so paid, withheld or deducted by the Non-Pro Rata Lender in respect of any payments to a Risk Participant hereunder and for the amount of any loss suffered by the Non-Pro Rata Lender as a result of any failure by the Australian Borrower to make any payment to the Non-Pro Rata Lender required pursuant to the terms of Section 2.14 (all such payments being increased as may be necessary so that after the payment of any taxes, or the making of any required deductions in respect thereof, the Non-Pro Rata Lender receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received in the absence of such taxes or deductions). This indemnification shall be made within 30 days from the date the Non-Pro Rata Lender makes written demand therefor. (ii) Each Risk Participant agrees to indemnify the Non-Pro Rata Lender (to the extent not timely paid by the Borrower), within 5 Business Days of written demand therefor, for the full amount of (A) interest payable to the Non-Pro Rata Lender by the Australian Borrower in respect of Non-Pro Rata Advances, and (B) amounts payable to the Non-Pro Rata Lender pursuant to Section 8.04(c) in respect of any Non-Pro Rata Advances. SECTION 7.06. SUCCESSOR AGENTS. Any Administrative Agent and any Collateral Agent may resign at any time by giving written notice thereof to the other Lender Parties and the Borrowers and may be removed at any time with or without cause by the Required Lenders. Upon any such resignation or removal, the Required Lenders shall have the right to appoint a successor Agent to assume the duties of such resigning or removed Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent; PROVIDED that any such successor Agent shall be approved by PGI, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed except that, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the approval of PGI shall not be required with respect to any successor Agent that is a Lender.

If, for the purpose of obtaining judgment in any court, it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder, under any Note or Notes or under the other Loan Documents (including, without limitation, all or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations) in another currency into US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, the parties hereto agree, to the fullest extent that they may effectively do so, that the rate of exchange used shall be that at which, in accordance with normal banking procedures, a Lender Party could purchase such other currency with US Dollars in New York City, New York or Canadian Dollars in Toronto, Ontario at 9:00 a.m. (New York City time or Toronto time, respectively) or Australian Dollars in Sydney, Australia at 9:00 a.m. (Sydney time), as the case may be, on the Business Day immediately preceding that on which final judgment is given, together with any premiums and costs of exchange payable in connection with such purchase. (B) INDEMNITY. The obligation of each Loan Party in respect of any sum due from it to any Administrative Agent or any Lender Party hereunder, under any Note or Notes or under any other Loan Document shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency other than US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day next succeeding receipt by such Administrative Agent or such Lender Party of any sum adjudged to be so due in such other currency, such Administrative Agent or such Lender Party, as the case may be, may, in accordance with normal banking procedures, purchase US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, with such other currency. If the US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, so purchased are less than the sum originally due to such Administrative Agent or such Lender Party in US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, each Borrower agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify such Administrative Agent or such Lender Party against such loss, and if the US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars so purchased exceed the sum originally due to any Administrative Agent or any Lender Party in US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, such Administrative Agent or such Lender Party agrees to remit to such Borrower such excess. SECTION 8.12. DIRECT OBLIGATIONS. Each Borrower agrees that its Obligations hereunder and under any Notes and BA Obligations issued by such Borrower, in each case whether any of such Obligations are joint and several Obligations of any other Borrower or otherwise, are direct obligations of such Borrower and that such Obligations of such Borrower shall not be, or be deemed to be, suretyship or guarantee obligations. If, notwithstanding the foregoing, any Obligation of any Borrower hereunder or under any Note or BA Obligation issued by such Borrower shall, for any reason, be deemed or determined to be a suretyship or guarantee obligation, such Borrower hereby waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any and all defenses to such Obligation of such Borrower that may arise by virtue of such Obligation being so deemed or determined to be a suretyship or guarantee obligation. SECTION 8.13. RATIFICATION. PGI, as the sole shareholder of PGA, hereby ratifies and confirms the execution, delivery and performance by PGA of this Agreement and each other Loan Document to which PGA is a party. SECTION 8.14. GOVERNING LAW. This Agreement and the Notes shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York. SECTION 8.15. WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. Each Borrower, each Administrative Agent and each other Lender Party irrevocably waives all right to trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim (whether based on contract, tort or otherwise) arising out of or relating to any of the Loan Documents, the Advances or the actions of any Administrative Agent or any Lender Party in the negotiation, administration, performance or enforcement thereof. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Agreement to be executed by their respective officers thereunto duly authorized, as of the date first above written.

PRELIMINARY STATEMENTS: (1) PGI, PGC and PGA (each a "BORROWER" and, collectively, the "BORROWERS") have entered into a Multicurrency Reducing Revolving Credit Agreement dated as of April 17, 1996 (said Agreement, as it may hereafter be amended, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, being the "CREDIT AGREEMENT"; capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein have the meanings assigned to such terms in the Credit Agreement) with the Lenders and Issuing Banks party thereto, Citibank Canada, as Canadian Administrative Agent, Citibank Limited, as Australian Administrative Agent, Citibank, as US Administrative Agent for the Lender Parties, ABN AMRO Australia Limited, as the Non-Pro Rata Lender and ABN AMRO Bank N.V., Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Dresdner Bank AG, New York Branch, and The First National Bank of Chicago, as Co-Agents. Pursuant to the Credit Agreement, the Lenders and the Issuing Banks will, among other things and subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Credit Agreement, make Accommodations for the respective accounts of the Borrowers and issue Letters of Credit for the respective accounts of the Borrowers. (2) Each Pledgor is the owner of the shares of stock described and attributed to such Pledgor's ownership in Schedule I hereto (all of such shares of the Pledgors, collectively, the "PLEDGED SHARES"). The Pledgors, or any of them, may hereafter from time to time pledge other shares of stock in PGA or, in accordance with Section 5.01(m) of the Credit Agreement, any future Restricted Subsidiary incorporated under the laws of Australia or any territory thereof, which may be identified in a notice in the form of Annex I hereto ("NOTICE OF IDENTIFICATION") from the US Collateral Agent to the applicable Pledgor given after the date of this Agreement (any such shares so identified being "IDENTIFIED SHARES"). (3) PGC has previously entered into a Hedge Agreement with Chemical Bank (the "EXISTING HEDGE BANK"), the obligations under which are to be secured hereby. (4) It is a condition precedent to the making of Accommodations and the issuance of Letters of Credit by the Lender Parties under the Credit Agreement that each Pledgor shall have granted the assignment and security interest and made the pledge and assignment contemplated by this Agreement. NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and in order to induce the Lender Parties to enter into the Credit Agreement, and to make Accommodations and issue Letters of Credit from time to time thereunder, the Pledgors hereby agree with the US Collateral Agent for its benefit and the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties as follows: SECTION 1. GRANT OF SECURITY. Each Pledgor hereby assigns and pledges (and agrees to assign and pledge) to the US Collateral Agent for its benefit and the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties, and hereby grants (and agrees to grant) to the US Collateral Agent for its benefit and the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties a security interest in, all of such Pledgor's right, title and interest, whether now existing or hereafter arising and wherever located, in and to the following (collectively, the "COLLATERAL"): (a) the Pledged Shares and the certificates representing the Pledged Shares, and all dividends, cash, instruments and other property from time to time received, receivable or otherwise distributed in respect of or in exchange for any or all of the Pledged Shares; (b) all Identified Shares described in each Notice of Identification (unless, with respect to the Identified Shares identified in any such Notice of Identification, the Pledgor receiving such Notice provides the US Collateral Agent with written notice of such Pledgor's rejection of such Notice of Identification prior to 9:00 a.m. New York City time on the Business Day following receipt by such Pledgor of such Notice), and the certificates representing such Identified Shares, and all dividends, cash, instruments and other rights and property from time to time received, receivable or otherwise distributed in respect of or in exchange for any or all of such Identified Shares; (c) all additional shares of stock of any issuer of Pledged Shares and of any Person being designated as a Restricted Subsidiary pursuant to Section 5.01(m) of the Credit Agreement and all options to acquire any such shares of stock from time to time acquired by such Pledgor in any manner after the date of this Agreement or which become owned legally or beneficially by such Pledgor or by any Person (including, without limitation, a trustee, nominee, broker or agent) on behalf of such Pledgor, and the certificates representing such additional shares, and all dividends, cash, instruments and other property from time to time received, receivable or otherwise distributed in respect of or in exchange for any or all of such shares; (d) all rights of such Pledgor arising under any shareholders' agreement relating to Collateral of such Pledgor; and (e) all proceeds of any and all of the foregoing Collateral (including without limitation proceeds that constitute property and assets of the types described in clauses (a) through (d) of this Section 1); PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the foregoing clauses (a) through (e) shall not apply to the capital stock of any Foreign Subsidiary to the extent (and only to such extent) that the application of such clauses would require the pledge hereunder of more than 65% of each class of the capital stock of any Foreign Subsidiary. All Identified Shares and additional shares of stock or other securities pledged to the US Collateral Agent pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall constitute "Pledged Shares" for all purposes of this Agreement from and after the date of such pledge. SECTION 2. SECURITY FOR OBLIGATIONS; LIMITED SECURITY. (a) The Collateral pledged by each Pledgor pursuant to this Agreement secures the payment of all Obligations of such Pledgor now or hereafter existing under (a) the Loan Documents (including any amendments, modifications, extensions, substitutions or renewals thereof), whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent and whether for principal (including, without limitation, reimbursement of, and providing cash collateral for, amounts drawn or available to be drawn under Letters of Credit or amount owing in respect of BA Obligations), interest (including, without limitation, interest that, but for the filing of a petition in bankruptcy would accrue on such obligations), fees, expenses, charges, indemnification obligations or otherwise, and (b) the Existing Hedge Agreements (all such Obligations under the foregoing clauses (a) and (b) being the "SECURED OBLIGATIONS"). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, this Agreement secures the payment of all amounts that constitute part of the Secured Obligations and would be owed by any Pledgor to the US Collateral Agent or any Secured Party under the Loan Documents or the Existing Hedge Agreements but for the fact that they are unenforceable or they are not allowable due to the existence of an Insolvency Event or a bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding. (b) Any provision hereof to the contrary notwithstanding, the amount of the Secured Obligations is a limited amount. At any time until this Agreement is released in accordance with Section 17, that limited amount is the sum of all amounts then falling within the definition of Secured Obligations which: (i) were present liabilities (within the meaning of Section 261 of the Australian Corporations Law) at the time of execution of this charge, or (ii) were, at the time of execution of this charge, prospective liabilities (within the meaning of Section 261 of the Australian Corporations Law) of the nature specified below up to the maximum amount specified below: Nature of liabilities: The liabilities of any Pledgor to: (A) repay all Advances which are made to it under the Credit Agreement and amounts to be reimbursed or paid (including the requirement to provide cash collateral) in respect of amounts drawn or available to be drawn under Letters of Credit or amounts owing in respect of BA Obligations; (B) pay interest on those Advances and other amounts payable under the Credit Agreement; (C) pay moneys owing under the Credit Agreement, the Notes, the Guaranty, this Agreement, any Bank Hedge Agreement, any other Loan Document or any Existing Hedge Agreement; (D) pay or reimburse any Secured Party for all costs, charges and expenses and all indemnity obligations incurred in connection with the Credit Agreement, the Guaranty, this Agreement or any other Loan Document. Maximum amount: US$1,000,000,000 (or the Equivalent thereof in any other currency or in US Dollars and any combination of any other currencies). SECTION 3. DELIVERY OF COLLATERAL. All certificates or instruments representing or evidencing the Collateral shall be delivered to and held by or on behalf of the US Collateral Agent pursuant to this Agreement and shall be in suitable form for transfer by delivery, or shall be accompanied by duly executed instruments of transfer or assignment in blank, all in form and substance satisfactory to the US Collateral Agent. The certificates representing the Pledged Shares identified on Schedule I (and any shares identified in a Notice of Identification delivered prior to the Closing Date) shall be so delivered to the US Collateral Agent on or prior to the Closing Date and all other such certificates or instruments shall be delivered to the US Collateral Agent within five Business Days of any Pledgor obtaining possession thereof. During the continuance of any Event of Default (or at any time if deemed necessary by the US Collateral Agent to perfect the security interests granted hereunder in any Collateral), (a) the US Collateral Agent shall have the right, at any time in its discretion and without notice to any Pledgor, to transfer to or to register in the name of the US Collateral Agent or any of its nominees any or all of the Collateral subject only to the revocable rights specified in Section 7(a), and (b) if requested by the US Collateral Agent, each Pledgor shall promptly take or cause to be taken any action necessary to cause any Collateral designated by the US Collateral Agent to be registered in the name of the US Collateral Agent or such of its nominees as the US Collateral Agent shall direct, subject only to the revocable rights specified in Section 7(a). In addition, the US Collateral Agent shall have the right at any time to exchange certificates or instruments representing or evidencing Collateral for certificates or instruments of smaller or larger denominations.

(b) Such Pledgor is the legal and beneficial owner of the Collateral pledged by it hereunder free and clear of any Lien. No effective financing statement or other instrument similar in effect covering all or any part of the Collateral is on file in any recording office, except such as may have been filed in favor of the US Collateral Agent relating to this Agreement or any other Loan Document. (c) The Pledged Shares and any other shares of stock pledged to the US Collateral Agent pursuant to the terms of this Agreement have been duly authorized and validly issued and are fully paid and non-assessable. There are no existing options, warrants, calls or commitments of any character whatsoever relating to the Pledged Shares. (d) The Pledged Shares constitute the percentage of the outstanding capital stock of the issuer thereof indicated on Schedule I and the Identified Shares constitute the percentage of the outstanding capital stock of the issuer thereof indicated on the Notice of Identification with respect to such Identified Shares. (e) There is no unanimous shareholder agreement which restricts, in whole or in part, the powers of the directors of any Pledgor or of any issuer of Pledged Shares to manage or supervise the business and affairs of such Pledgor or such issuer, as the case may be. (f) Such Pledgor does not have or use a french form or name or a combined english and french form of name. (g) Such Pledgor benefits by the execution of this Agreement. SECTION 5. FURTHER ASSURANCES.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Pledgor will: (i) at the request of the US Collateral Agent, mark conspicuously each of its records pertaining to the Collateral with a legend, in form and substance satisfactory to the US Collateral Agent, indicating that such Collateral is subject to the security interest granted hereby; (ii) if any Collateral shall be evidenced by a promissory note or other instrument, deliver and pledge to the US Collateral Agent hereunder such note or instrument duly indorsed and accompanied by duly executed instruments of transfer or assignment, all in form and substance satisfactory to the US Collateral Agent; and (iii) execute and file such financing or continuation statements, or amendments thereto, and such other instruments, forms or notices, as may be necessary or desirable, or as the US Collateral Agent may reasonably request, in order to perfect and preserve the pledge, assignment and security interest granted or purported to be granted hereby or to register this Agreement as a charge on any appropriate register. (b) Each Pledgor hereby authorizes the US Collateral Agent to file one or more financing or continuation statements, and amendments thereto, relating to all or any part of the Collateral without the signature of such Pledgor where permitted by law. A photocopy or other reproduction of this Agreement or any financing statement covering the Collateral or any part thereof shall be sufficient as a financing statement where permitted by law. (c) Each Pledgor will furnish to the US Collateral Agent from time to time statements and schedules further identifying and describing the Collateral and such other reports in connection with the Collateral as the US Collateral Agent may reasonably request, all in detail satisfactory to the US Collateral Agent. SECTION 6. PLACE OF PERFECTION; RECORDS. Each Pledgor shall keep its chief place of business and chief executive office and the office where it keeps its records concerning the Collateral at the location therefor specified in Section 4(a) or, upon 30 days' prior written notice to the US Collateral Agent, at such other locations in a jurisdiction where all actions required by Section 5 shall have been taken with respect to the Collateral. Each Pledgor will hold and preserve such records and will permit representatives of the US Collateral Agent at any time during normal business hours to inspect and make abstracts from such records. SECTION 7. VOTING RIGHTS; DIVIDENDS; ETC. (a) Prior to the delivery of the notice referred to in Section 7(c): (i) Each Pledgor shall be entitled to exercise any and all voting and other consensual rights pertaining to the Collateral of such Pledgor or any part thereof for any purpose not inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that such Pledgor shall not exercise or refrain from exercising any such right if such action would have a material adverse effect on the value of the Collateral or any part thereof. (ii) The US Collateral Agent shall execute and deliver (or cause to be executed and delivered) to the relevant Pledgor all such proxies and other instruments as such Pledgor may reasonably request for the purpose of enabling such Pledgor to exercise the voting and other rights that it is entitled to exercise pursuant to paragraph (i) above. (b) Any and all dividends paid or payable other than as permitted by the Credit Agreement shall be, and shall be forthwith delivered to the US Collateral Agent to hold as, Collateral and shall, if received by any Pledgor, be received in trust for the benefit of the US Collateral Agent, be segregated from the other property or funds of such Pledgor and be forthwith delivered to the US Collateral Agent as Collateral in the same form as so received (with any necessary indorsement). (c) Upon notice to any Pledgor by the US Collateral Agent following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, all rights of such Pledgor to exercise or refrain from exercising the voting and other consensual rights that it would otherwise be entitled to exercise pursuant to Section 7(a)(i) shall cease (and any proxies previously delivered by the US Collateral Agent pursuant to Section 7(a)(ii) shall become ineffective), and all such rights shall thereupon become vested in the US Collateral Agent, which shall thereupon have the sole right to exercise or refrain from exercising such voting and other consensual rights. SECTION 8. TRANSFERS AND OTHER LIENS; ADDITIONAL SHARES. (a) Except as permitted by the Credit Agreement, no Pledgor shall (i) sell, assign (by operation of law or otherwise) or otherwise dispose of, or grant any option with respect to, any of the Collateral, or (ii) create or suffer to exist any Lien upon or with respect to any of the Collateral except for the pledge, assignment and security interest created by this Agreement. (b) Each Pledgor shall (i) from and after the Closing Date, cause each issuer of the Pledged Shares not to issue any stock or other securities in addition to or in substitution for the Pledged Shares, except to such Pledgor, and (ii) upon its acquisition (directly or indirectly) of any additional shares of such issuer's stock or other securities, deliver or otherwise transfer such shares to the US Collateral Agent in accordance with Section 3 hereof. SECTION 9. COLLATERAL AGENT APPOINTED ATTORNEY-IN-FACT. Each Pledgor hereby irrevocably appoints the US Collateral Agent such Pledgor's attorney-in-fact, with full authority in the place and stead of such Pledgor and in the name of such Pledgor or otherwise, from time to time during the continuance of an Event of Default in the US Collateral Agent's discretion, to take any action and to execute any instrument that the US Collateral Agent may deem necessary or advisable to accomplish the purposes of this Agreement. SECTION 10. COLLATERAL AGENT MAY PERFORM. If any Pledgor fails to perform any agreement contained herein, the US Collateral Agent may itself (but shall not be obligated to) perform, or cause performance of, such agreement, and the expenses of the US Collateral Agent incurred in connection therewith shall be payable by such Pledgor under Section 14(b). SECTION 11. THE COLLATERAL AGENTS' DUTIES. The powers conferred on the US Collateral Agent hereunder are solely to protect its interest in the Collateral and shall not impose any duty upon it to exercise any such powers. Except for the safe custody of any Collateral in its possession and the accounting for moneys actually received by it hereunder, the US Collateral Agent shall have no duty as to any Collateral, as to ascertaining or taking action with respect to calls, conversions, exchanges, maturities, tenders or other matters relative to any Collateral, whether or not the US Collateral Agent or any Secured Party has or is deemed to have knowledge of such matters, or as to the taking of any necessary steps to preserve rights against any parties or any other rights pertaining to any Collateral. The US Collateral Agent shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation of any Collateral in its possession if such Collateral is accorded treatment substantially equal to that which Citibank accords its own property. SECTION 12. REMEDIES. If any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing: (a) (i) The US Collateral Agent may exercise in respect of the Collateral, in addition to other rights and remedies provided for herein or otherwise available to it, all the rights and remedies of a secured party upon default under the Uniform Commercial Code in effect in the State of New York at such time (the "N.Y. UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE") (whether or not the N.Y. Uniform Commercial Code applies to the affected Collateral) and also may (A) require each Pledgor to, and such Pledgor hereby agrees that it will at its expense and upon request of the US Collateral Agent forthwith, assemble all or part of the Collateral as directed by the US Collateral Agent and make it available to the US Collateral Agent at a place to be designated by the US Collateral Agent that is reasonably convenient to both parties and (B) without notice except as specified below, sell the Collateral or any part thereof in one or more parcels at public or private sale, at any of the US Collateral Agent's offices or elsewhere, for cash, on credit or for future delivery, and upon such other terms as the US Collateral Agent may deem commercially reasonable. Each Pledgor agrees that (except as otherwise provided in Section 12(h)), to the extent notice of sale shall be required by law, at least ten days' notice to such Pledgor of the time and place of any public sale or the time after which any private sale is to be made shall constitute reasonable notification. The US Collateral Agent shall not be obligated to make any sale of Collateral regardless of notice of sale having been given. The US Collateral Agent may adjourn any public or private sale from time to time by announcement at the time and place fixed therefor, and such sale may, without further notice, be made at the time and place to which it was so adjourned. (ii) Each Pledgor recognizes that, by reason of certain prohibitions contained in the Securities Act of 1933, as from time to time amended (the "SECURITIES ACT"), the Securities Act (Ontario), the Securities Act (British Columbia), the Australian Corporations Law and other applicable foreign, state, provincial or territorial securities laws (collectively, including the Securities Act, the "APPLICABLE SECURITIES LAWS"), the US Collateral Agent may be compelled, with respect to any sale of all or any part of the Collateral conducted without prior registration or qualification of such Collateral under the Securities Act or any other Applicable Securities Laws, to limit purchasers to those who will agree, among other things, to acquire the Collateral for their own account, for investment and not with a view to the distribution or resale thereof. Each Pledgor acknowledges that any such private sales or otherwise restricted or limited sales may be at prices and on terms less favorable to the US Collateral Agent than those obtainable through a public sale without such restrictions (including, without limitation, a public offering made pursuant to a registration statement under the Securities Act) and, notwithstanding such circumstances, such Pledgor agrees that any such private sale or otherwise restricted or limited sale shall be deemed to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner and that the US Collateral Agent shall have no obligation to engage in public sales and no obligation to delay the sale of any Collateral for the period of time necessary to permit the issuer thereof to register it for a form of public sale requiring registration under the Securities Act or under any other Applicable Securities Laws even if the issuer of the applicable Collateral would agree to do so. (iii) If the US Collateral Agent determines to exercise its right to sell any or all of the Collateral, upon written request, each Pledgor shall and shall cause each issuer of the Pledged Shares from time to time to furnish to the US Collateral Agent all such information as the US Collateral Agent may reasonably request in order to determine the number of shares and other instruments included in the Collateral which may be sold by the US Collateral Agent as exempt transactions under the Securities Act and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission thereunder, as the same are from time to time in effect, and under any other Applicable Securities Laws. (b) All cash proceeds received by the US Collateral Agent in respect of any sale of, collection from, or other realization upon all or any part of the Collateral may, in the discretion of the US Collateral Agent, be held by the US Collateral Agent as collateral for, and/or then or at any time thereafter applied (after payment of any amounts payable to the US Collateral Agent pursuant to Section 14) in whole or in part by the US Collateral Agent for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties against, all or any part of the Secured Obligations in such order as the US Collateral Agent shall elect; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the US Collateral Agent shall not in any event be required or have any obligation to make any distribution in respect of (or to include in any calculation of the aggregate Secured Obligations then outstanding) any Secured Obligations arising under any Existing Hedge Agreement unless the US Collateral Agent has, at the time of any distribution of proceeds received in respect of the Collateral, received written notice from the holder of such Secured Obligations as to amounts due and owing thereunder. Any surplus of such cash or cash proceeds held by the US Collateral Agent and remaining after payment in full of all the Secured Obligations shall be paid over to the applicable Pledgor or to whomsoever may be lawfully entitled to receive such surplus. (c) The US Collateral Agent may exercise any and all rights and remedies of any Pledgor under or in respect of the Collateral. (d) All payments received by any of the Pledgors under or in respect of the Collateral shall be received in trust for the benefit of the US Collateral Agent and the other Secured Parties, shall be segregated from other funds of such Pledgor and shall be forthwith paid over to the US Collateral Agent in the same form as so received (with any necessary indorsement). (e) If the US Collateral Agent exercises its rights under this Agreement, exercises its rights conferred by law or takes possession of the Collateral, then it is not liable to account under the laws of Australia or any territory thereof as mortgagee in possession. (f) The US Collateral Agent may, in accordance with Section 8.01 of the Credit Agreement, release the Collateral, or any of it, at any time. (g) A purchaser from or other person dealing with the US Collateral Agent or any attorney appointed under this Agreement or a person to whom is tendered for registration an instrument duly executed by any of them need not inquire: (i) whether the Secured Obligations are in fact owing or payable, (ii) whether default has occurred, (iii) whether a right, power or remedy which they have exercised or purported to exercise has been properly exercised, or (iv) about any other thing in connection with the exercise or purported exercise of a right, power or remedy. (h) With respect to any Pledged Shares issued by a corporation incorporated under the laws of Australia or any territory thereof ("AUSTRALIAN SHARES"), the US Collateral Agent need not give notice or a demand to the Pledgor of such Collateral, or allow time to elapse, before exercising any right, power or remedy under this Agreement or conferred by law, unless notice or demand or a lapse of time is required by a law which cannot be excluded. If the law requires, with respect to any Australian Shares, that a period of notice must be given or a lapse of time must occur or be permitted before a right, power or remedy under this Agreement or conferred by law may be exercised, then, with respect only to any Australian Shares: (i) when a period of notice or lapse of time is mandatory, that period of notice must be given or that lapse of time must be permitted by the US Collateral Agent; or (ii) when the law provides that a period of notice or lapse of time may be stipulated or fixed by this agreement, ten days is stipulated and fixed as that period of notice or lapse of time and, without limitation, where applicable, ten days is stipulated and fixed as the period of notice or lapse of time during which: (A) default must continue before a notice is given or requirement otherwise made for payment of any Secured Obligation or the observance of obligations under this Agreement; and (B) a notice or requirement for payment of any Secured Obligation or the observance of obligations under this Agreement must remain not complied with before the US Collateral Agent's rights, powers or remedies may be exercised. The title of any person relying on this Section is not affected by express or constructive notice of anything in connection with the matters referred to above. SECTION 13. REGISTRATION RIGHTS. If the US Collateral Agent shall determine to exercise its right to sell all or any of the Collateral consisting of shares of an issuer incorporated in the United States pursuant to Section 12, each Pledgor agrees that, upon request of the US Collateral Agent, such Pledgor will, at its own expense: (a) execute and deliver, and cause each issuer of the Collateral contemplated to be sold and the directors and officers thereof to execute and deliver, all such instruments and documents, and do or cause to be done all such other acts and things, as may be reasonably necessary or, in the opinion of the US Collateral Agent, advisable to register such Collateral under the provisions of the Securities Act of 1933, as from time to time amended (the "SECURITIES ACT"), to cause the registration statement relating thereto to become effective and to remain effective for such period as prospectuses are required by law to be furnished and to make all amendments and supplements thereto and to the related prospectus that, in the opinion of the US Collateral Agent, are necessary or advisable, all in conformity with the requirements of the Securities Act and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission applicable thereto; (b) use its best efforts to qualify the Collateral under the state securities or "Blue Sky" laws and to obtain all necessary governmental approvals for the sale of the Collateral, as requested by the US Collateral Agent; (c) cause each such issuer to make available to its security holders, as soon as practicable, an earnings statement that will satisfy the provisions of Section 11(a) of the Securities Act; (d) provide the US Collateral Agent with such other information and projections as may be reasonably necessary or, in the opinion of the US Collateral Agent, advisable to enable the US Collateral Agent to effect the sale of such Collateral; and (e) do or cause to be done all such other acts and things as may be necessary to make such sale of the Collateral or any part thereof valid and binding and in compliance with applicable law. The US Collateral Agent is authorized, in connection with any sale of the Collateral pursuant to Section 12, to deliver or otherwise disclose to any prospective purchaser of the Collateral (i) any registration statement or prospectus, and all supplements and amendments thereto, prepared pursuant to clause (a) above, (ii) any information and projections provided to it pursuant to clause (d) above and (iii) any other information in its possession relating to the Collateral. SECTION 14. INDEMNITY AND EXPENSES. (a) Each Pledgor agrees to indemnify the US Collateral Agent from and against any and all claims, losses and liabilities arising out of, resulting from or otherwise relating to this Agreement (including, without limitation, enforcement of this Agreement), except claims, losses or liabilities resulting from the US Collateral Agent's gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. (b) Each Pledgor will upon demand pay to the US Collateral Agent the amount of any and all reasonable expenses, including the reasonable fees and expenses of its counsel and of any experts and agents, that the US Collateral Agent may incur in connection with (i) the administration of this Agreement, (ii) the custody, preservation, use or operation of, or the sale of, collection from or other realization upon, any of the Collateral, (iii) the exercise or enforcement of any of the rights of the US Collateral Agent or the Secured Parties hereunder or (iv) the failure by such Pledgor to perform or observe any of the provisions hereof. SECTION 15. AMENDMENTS; WAIVERS; ETC. (a) No amendment or waiver of any provision of this Agreement, and no consent to any departure by any Pledgor herefrom, shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the US Collateral Agent (with the consent or at the direction of the Required Lenders) and, in the case of any such amendment, by each Pledgor (except as set forth in Section 15(b)), and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given. No failure on the part of the US Collateral Agent to exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right. (b) Upon the execution and delivery to the US Administrative Agent by any Person of an Amendment to Pledge Agreement in substantially the form of Exhibit M to the Credit Agreement, which Amendment to Pledge Agreement need not be executed by any other Pledgor, such Person shall be and become a Pledgor hereunder, and each reference in this Agreement to a "Pledgor" shall include such Person and each reference in any other Loan Document to a "Pledgor" or a "Loan Party" shall include such Person. SECTION 16. ADDRESSES FOR NOTICES. All notices and other communications provided for hereunder shall be in writing (including telecopier, telegraphic, telex or cable communication) and, mailed, telegraphed, telecopied, telexed, cabled or delivered to the applicable Pledgor or to the US Collateral Agent, as the case may be, in each case addressed to it at its address specified in Section 8.02 of the Credit Agreement (in the case of the US Collateral Agent and each of the Borrowers) or its address specified on the signature pages hereof or on the Amendment to Pledge Agreement pursuant to which it became a Pledgor hereunder (in the case of each other Pledgor) or, as to any party, at such other address as shall be designated by such party in a written notice to each other party complying as to delivery with the terms of this Section. All such notices and other communications shall, when mailed, telecopied, telegraphed, telexed or cabled, respectively, be effective when deposited in the mails, telecopied, delivered to the telegraph company, confirmed by telex answerback or delivered to the cable company, respectively, addressed as aforesaid. SECTION 17. CONTINUING SECURITY INTEREST; ASSIGNMENTS UNDER THE CREDIT AGREEMENT. This Agreement shall create a continuing security interest in the Collateral and shall, subject to Section 8.01 of the Credit Agreement, (a) remain in full force and effect until the payment in full in cash of all Obligations under the Loan Documents, the termination of the Commitments and the expiration or termination of all Letters of Credit and BA Obligations (it being understood that each Bank Hedge Agreement and Existing Hedge Agreement shall, unless a Default under Section 6.01(f) of the Credit Agreement then exists, cease to be a Loan Document for purposes hereof and cease to be secured hereby upon the payment in full in cash of all Obligations under the Credit Agreement, the Notes and the termination of the Commitments, and the expiration or termination of all Letters of Credit and BA Obligations), (b) be binding upon each Pledgor, its successors and assigns and (c) inure, together with the rights and remedies of the US Collateral Agent hereunder, to the benefit of the US Collateral Agent, the Secured Parties and their respective successors, transferees and assigns. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing clause (c), subject to Section 8.07 of the Credit Agreement, any Lender Party may assign or otherwise transfer all or any portion of its rights and obligations under the Credit Agreement (including, without limitation, all or any portion of its Commitment, and the Accommodations owing to it and the Note or Notes held by it) to any other Person, and such other Person shall thereupon become vested with all the benefits in respect thereof granted to such Lender Party herein or otherwise, in each case as provided in Section 8.07 of the Credit Agreement. Each Pledgor acknowledges that upon any Person becoming a Lender Party such Person shall be a Secured Party hereunder. SECTION 18. TERMINATION; RELEASE. (a) Upon the Collateral Release Date, if any, or upon the payment in full in cash of all Obligations under the Loan Documents, the termination of the Commitments and the expiration or termination of all Letters of Credit and BA Obligations, the pledge, assignment and security interest granted hereby shall terminate and all rights to the Collateral shall revert to the relevant Pledgor. Upon any such termination, the US Collateral Agent will, at the relevant Pledgor's expense, execute and deliver to such Pledgor such documents as such Pledgor shall reasonably request to evidence such termination. (b) The US Collateral Agent shall, upon the request of PGI, release from the Lien hereunder any redeemable preferred stock that is redeemed in accordance with Section 5.02(g)(iii) of the Credit Agreement (and shall, to the extent then in the possession of the US Collateral Agent, deliver to the applicable Pledgor the certificates representing such redeemable preferred stock). SECTION 19. GOVERNING LAW; TERMS. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, except to the extent that the validity or perfection of the security interest hereunder, or remedies hereunder, in respect of any particular Collateral is governed by the laws of a jurisdiction other than the State of New York. Unless otherwise defined herein or in the Credit Agreement, terms used in Article 8 or Article 9 of the N.Y. Uniform Commercial Code are used herein as therein defined. SECTION 20. JURISDICTION, ETC. (a) SUBMISSION TO JURISDICTION. Each Pledgor hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of any New York State court or federal court of the United States of America sitting in New York City, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents to which it is a party, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each Pledgor hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in any such New York State court or, to the extent permitted by law, in such federal court. Each Pledgor agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law. Each Pledgor hereby agrees that service of process in any such action or proceeding may be made upon CT Corporation Systems, 1633 Broadway, New York, New York 10019 (the "PROCESS AGENT") and each Pledgor hereby irrevocably appoints the Process Agent its authorized agent to accept such service of process, and agrees that the failure of the Process Agent to give any notice of any such service of process shall not impair or affect the validity of such service or of any judgment rendered in any action or proceeding based thereon. Each Pledgor hereby further irrevocably consents to the service of process in any action or proceeding in such courts by the mailing thereof by any parties hereto by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, to such Pledgor at its address specified pursuant to Section 16. Nothing in this Agreement shall affect any right that any party may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents in the courts of any jurisdiction. To the extent that any Pledgor has or hereafter may acquire any immunity from jurisdiction of any court or from any legal process (whether through service or notice, attachment prior to judgment, attachment in aid of execution, execution or otherwise) with respect to itself or its property, such Pledgor hereby irrevocably waives such immunity in respect of its obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. (b) WAIVERS REGARDING VENUE, INCONVENIENT VENUE. Each Pledgor irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents to which it is a party in any New York State or federal court. Each Pledgor hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court. SECTION 21. JUDGMENT. (a) RATE OF EXCHANGE. If, for the purpose of obtaining judgment in any court, it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder, under any Note or Notes or under any other Loan Document (including, without limitation, all or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations) in another currency into US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, the parties hereto agree, to the fullest extent that they may effectively do so, that the rate of exchange used shall be that at which, in accordance with normal banking procedures, a Lender Party could purchase such other currency with US Dollars in New York City, New York or Canadian Dollars in Toronto, Ontario at 9:00 A.M. (New York City time or Toronto time, respectively) or Australian Dollars in Sydney, Australia at 9:00 A.M. (Sydney time), as the case may be, on the Business Day immediately preceding that on which final judgment is given, together with any premiums and costs of exchange payable in connection with such purchase. (b) INDEMNITY. The obligation of each Pledgor in respect of any sum due from it to any Secured Party hereunder, under any Note or Notes or under any other Loan Document shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency other than US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day next succeeding receipt by such Secured Party of any sum adjudged to be so due in such other currency, such Secured Party may, in accordance with normal banking procedures, purchase US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, with such other currency. If the US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, so purchased are less than the sum originally due to such Secured Party in US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, each Pledgor agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify such Secured Party against such loss, and if the US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars so purchased exceed the sum originally due to any Secured Party in US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, such Secured Party agrees to remit to such Pledgor such excess. SECTION 22. EXECUTION IN COUNTERPARTS. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any consent, waiver or amendment relating hereto or thereto by telecopier shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement, such other Loan Document or such consent, waiver or amendment, as the case may be. SECTION 23. WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. Each Pledgor hereby irrevocably waives all right to trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim (whether based on contract, tort or otherwise) arising out of or relating to this Agreement, any of the Loan Documents, the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or the actions of the US Collateral Agent or any other Secured Party in the negotiation, administration, performance or enforcement hereof or thereof. SECTION 24. ACKNOWLEDGMENT. Each Pledgor hereby acknowledges receipt of a copy of this Agreement and, with respect to PGI, a copy of the financing statements or verification statements registered under the Personal Property Security Acts of British Columbia and Ontario in respect of the security interests created by PGI hereby. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, each Pledgor has caused this Agreement to be duly executed and delivered by its officer thereunto duly authorized as of the date first above written. PEGASUS GOLD INC.

PRELIMINARY STATEMENTS: (1) PGI, PGC and PGA (each a "BORROWER" and, collectively, the "BORROWERS") have entered into a Multicurrency Reducing Revolving Credit Agreement dated as of April 17, 1996 (said Agreement, as it may hereafter be amended, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, being the "CREDIT AGREEMENT"; capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein have the meanings assigned to such terms in the Credit Agreement) with the Lenders and Issuing Banks party thereto, Citibank Canada, as Canadian Administrative Agent, Citibank Limited, as Australian Administrative Agent, Citibank, as US Administrative Agent for the Lender Parties, ABN AMRO Australia Limited, as the Non-Pro Rata Lender and ABN AMRO Bank N.V., Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Dresdner Bank AG, New York Branch and The First National Bank of Chicago, as Co-Agents. Pursuant to the Credit Agreement, the Lenders and the Issuing Banks will, among other things and subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Credit Agreement, make Accommodations and issue Letters of Credit for the respective accounts of the Borrowers. (2) Each Guarantor may receive a portion of the proceeds of the Accommodations under the Credit Agreement and will derive substantial direct and indirect benefit from the transactions contemplated by the Credit Agreement and the Board of Directors of each Guarantor has determined that it is in the best interests of such Guarantor to enter into this Guaranty. (3) It is a condition precedent to the making of Accommodations and the issuance of Letters of Credit by the Lender Parties under the Credit Agreement that each Guarantor shall have executed and delivered this Guaranty. NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and in order to induce the Lender Parties to enter into the Credit Agreement, and to make Accommodations and issue Letters of Credit from time to time thereunder, each Guarantor hereby agrees as follows: SECTION 1. GUARANTY; LIMITATION OF CERTAIN GUARANTORS' LIABILITY. (a) Each Guarantor hereby unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees, on a joint and several basis, the punctual payment when due, whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise, of all Obligations of each other Loan Party now or hereafter existing under the Loan Documents (including any amendments, modifications, extensions, substitutions or renewals thereof), whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent and whether for principal (including, without limitation, reimbursement of, and providing cash collateral for, amounts drawn or available to be drawn under Letters of Credit or amounts owing in respect of BA Obligations), interest (including, without limitation, interest that but for the filing of a petition in bankruptcy would accrue on such obligations), fees, expenses or otherwise (such Obligations being the "GUARANTEED OBLIGATIONS"), and agrees to pay any and all expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable counsel fees and expenses) incurred by any of the Guaranteed Parties in enforcing any rights under this Guaranty. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Guarantor's liability shall extend to all amounts that constitute part of the Guaranteed Obligations and would be owed by any Loan Party to any Guaranteed Party under the Loan Documents but for the fact that they are unenforceable or they are not allowable due to the existence of an Insolvency Event or a bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding. (b) Any provision of this Guaranty to the contrary notwithstanding, the liability of each Guarantor (other than PGI, which shall be liable hereunder to the full extent of the Guaranteed Obligations) under this Guaranty shall be limited to such maximum aggregate amount as would not render such Guarantor's obligations hereunder subject to avoidance as a fraudulent transfer or conveyance under Section 548 of Title 11 of the United States Code or any applicable provisions of any state or foreign law having similar effect. SECTION 2. GUARANTY ABSOLUTE. Each Guarantor guarantees that the Guaranteed Obligations will be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of the Loan Documents regardless of any law, regulation or order now or hereafter in effect in any jurisdiction affecting any of such terms or the rights of any Guaranteed Party with respect thereto. The Obligations of each Guarantor under this Guaranty are independent of the Guaranteed Obligations and any other Obligations of any other Loan Party under the Loan Documents (and, in the case of PGI, PGC and PGA, of its Obligations as a Borrower under the Credit Agreement), and a separate action or actions may be brought and prosecuted against such Guarantor to enforce this Guaranty, irrespective of whether any action is brought against any Borrower or any other Loan Party or whether any Borrower or any other Loan Party is joined in any such action or actions. The liability of each Guarantor under this Guaranty shall be irrevocable, absolute and unconditional irrespective of, and such Guarantor hereby irrevocably waives any defenses it may now or hereafter have in any way relating to, any or all of the following: (a) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Loan Document or any agreement or instrument relating thereto or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations being irrecoverable; (b) any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other term of, all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations or any other Obligations of any other Loan Party under the Loan Documents, or any other amendment or waiver of or any consent to departure from any Loan Document, including, without limitation, any increase in the Guaranteed Obligations resulting from the extension of additional credit to any Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries or otherwise; (c) any taking, exchange, release or non-perfection of any Collateral, or any taking, release or amendment or waiver of or consent to departure from any other guaranty, for all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations; (d) any manner of application of Collateral, or proceeds thereof, to all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations, or any manner of sale or other disposition of any Collateral for all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations or any other Obligations of any other Loan Party under the Loan Documents or any other assets of any Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries; (e) any change, restructuring or termination of the corporate structure or existence of any Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries; (f) any failure of any Guaranteed Party to disclose to any Loan Party (including such Guarantor) any information relating to the financial condition, operations, properties or prospects of any other Loan Party or any of its Subsidiaries now or in the future known to any Guaranteed Party (such Guarantor hereby unconditionally and irrevocably waiving any duty on the part of the Guaranteed Parties to disclose such information); (g) the receipt of a dividend after an Insolvency Event or the payment of a sum or sums into an account of the Borrower or any other Person at any time (whether received or paid jointly, jointly and severally or otherwise); or (h) any other circumstance (including, without limitation, any statute of limitations) or any existence of or reliance on any representation by any Guaranteed Party that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, any Borrower, any Guarantor or any other guarantor or surety. This Guaranty shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time any payment of any of the Guaranteed Obligations is rescinded or must otherwise be returned by any Guaranteed Party or any other Person upon the insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of any Borrower or any other Loan Party or otherwise, all as though such payment had not been made. SECTION 3. WAIVERS AND ACKNOWLEDGMENTS. (a) To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each Guarantor hereby unconditionally and irrevocably waives promptness, diligence, notice of acceptance and any other notice with respect to any of the Guaranteed Obligations and this Guaranty and any requirement that any Collateral Agent or any other Guaranteed Party protect, secure, perfect or insure any Lien or any property subject thereto or exhaust any right or take any action against any Loan Party or any other Person or any Collateral. (b) To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each Guarantor hereby unconditionally and irrevocably waives any right to revoke this Guaranty. Each Guarantor acknowledges that this Guaranty is continuing in nature and applies to all Guaranteed Obligations, whether existing now or in the future. (c) Each Guarantor acknowledges that it will receive substantial direct and indirect benefits from the financing arrangements contemplated by the Loan Documents and that the waivers set forth in Section 2 above and this Section 3 are knowingly made in contemplation of such benefits. SECTION 4. SUBROGATION; SUSPENSION OF GUARANTORS' RIGHTS. (a) No Guarantor will exercise any rights that it may now or hereafter acquire against any Loan Party or any other insider guarantor that arise from the existence, payment, performance or enforcement of such Guarantor's Obligations under this Guaranty or any other Loan Document, including, without limitation, any right of subrogation, reimbursement, exoneration, contribution or indemnification and any right to participate in any claim or remedy of any Collateral Agent or any other Guaranteed Party against such Loan Party or any other insider guarantor or any Collateral, whether or not such claim, remedy or right arises in equity or under contract, statute or common law, including, without limitation, the right to take or receive from such Loan Party or any other insider guarantor, directly or indirectly, in cash or other property or by set-off or in any other manner, payment or security on account of such claim, remedy or right, unless and until all of the Obligations under the Loan Documents shall have been paid in full in cash and no Letter of Credit or BA Obligation shall remain outstanding and the Commitments shall have expired or terminated. If any amount shall be paid to any Guarantor in violation of the preceding sentence at any time prior to the payment in full in cash of all Obligations under the Loan Documents, the expiration or termination of all Letters of Credit and BA Obligations and the termination of the Commitments, such amount shall be held in trust for the benefit of the Guaranteed Parties and shall forthwith be paid to the US Collateral Agent to be credited and applied to the Guaranteed Obligations and all other amounts payable under this Guaranty, whether matured or unmatured, in accordance with the terms of the Loan Documents, or to be held in a Cash Collateral Account as Collateral for any Guaranteed Obligations or other amounts payable under this Guaranty thereafter arising. If (i) any Guarantor shall make payment to any Collateral Agent or any other Guaranteed Party of all or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations, and (ii) all of the Obligations under the Loan Documents shall be paid in full in cash, the Commitments shall have terminated and no Letter of Credit or BA Obligation shall remain outstanding, the Collateral Agents and the other Guaranteed Parties will, at such Guarantor's request and expense, execute and deliver to such Guarantor appropriate documents, without recourse and without representation or warranty, necessary to evidence the transfer by subrogation to such Guarantor of an interest in the Guaranteed Obligations resulting from such payment by such Guarantor. (b) As long as any Obligations under the Loan Documents remain unpaid, no Australian Guarantor (as defined in Section 5) may without the prior written consent of the Collateral Agent: (i) in reduction of its liability under this Guaranty, raise a defense, set-off or counterclaim available to itself, another Guarantor or a co-surety or co-indemnifier against a Guaranteed Party or claim a set-off or make a counterclaim against a Guaranteed Party, (ii) make a claim or enforce a right (including, without limitation, a Security Interest) against any Guarantor or against their estate or property, or (iii) prove in competition with a Guaranteed Party if an Insolvency Event occurs in respect of a Guarantor whether in respect of an amount paid by the Guarantor under this Guaranty, in respect of another amount (including the proceeds of any Collateral) applied by any Collateral Agent or any Guaranteed Party in reduction of the Guarantor's liability under this Guaranty, or otherwise. SECTION 5. PAYMENTS FREE AND CLEAR OF TAXES, ETC. (a) Any and all payments by or on behalf of any Guarantor hereunder shall be made, in accordance with Section 2.13 of the Credit Agreement, free and clear of and without deduction for any and all present or future Taxes. If any Taxes are required to be withheld or deducted by any Person from any amounts payable to any Guaranteed Party hereunder or under any Note or in respect of any BA Obligation, (i) the sum payable by the Guarantors in respect of any such amount shall be increased as may be necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 5) such Guaranteed Party receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (B) the Guarantors (or a Guarantor) shall make such deductions and (C) the Guarantor making such deductions shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant taxation or other authority in accordance with applicable law. (b) In addition, each Guarantor agrees to pay any present or future Other Taxes. (c) Each Guarantor shall indemnify each Guaranteed Party for the full amount of Taxes and Other Taxes, and for the full amount of taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section 5, imposed on or paid by such Guaranteed Party and any liability (including penalties, fines, additions to tax, interest and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto. This indemnification shall be made within 30 days from the date such Guaranteed Party makes written demand therefor, but in no event shall such indemnification be required to be made prior to 15 days before the earlier of (i) the date such Guaranteed Party pays such Taxes or other Taxes or (ii) the date such Taxes or Other Taxes are due to the relevant taxing authority. (d) Within 30 days after the date of any payment of Taxes, the Guarantor making such payment shall furnish to the US Administrative Agent, at its address referred to in Section 8.02 of the Credit Agreement, the original receipt of payment thereof or a certified copy of such receipt. In the case of any payment hereunder by or on behalf of any Guarantor (i) through an account or branch outside the United States, in the case of a Guarantor organized under the laws of any State of the United States (each a "US GUARANTOR"), Canada, in the case of a Guarantor organized under the laws of any province of Canada (each a "CANADIAN GUARANTOR"); or Australia, in the case of any Guarantor organized under the laws of Australia or any territory thereof (each an "AUSTRALIAN GUARANTOR"), or (ii) by a payor that is not a United States person, in the case of any US Guarantor; a person Resident in Canada, in the case of any Canadian Guarantor; or a person Resident in Australia, in the case of any Australian Guarantor, if such Guarantor determines that no Taxes are payable in respect thereof, such Guarantor shall furnish, or shall cause such payor to furnish, to each Administrative Agent, at such address, an opinion of counsel acceptable to the Administrative Agents stating that such payment is exempt from Taxes. For purposes of this subsection (d) and subsection (e), the terms "UNITED STATES" and "UNITED STATES PERSON" shall have the meanings specified in Section 7701 of the Internal Revenue Code, the terms "CANADA" and "RESIDENT IN CANADA" shall have the meanings they have for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and the terms "AUSTRALIA" and "RESIDENT IN AUSTRALIA" shall have the meanings they have for Australian income tax purposes. (e) Each US Lender and each US Issuing Bank organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside the United States shall, on or prior to the date of its execution and delivery of the Credit Agreement in the case of each such Initial Lender or Initial Issuing Bank, as the case may be, and on the date of the Assignment and Acceptance pursuant to which it became a Lender Party in the case of each other such Lender Party, and from time to time thereafter as requested in writing by any US Guarantor or the US Administrative Agent (but only so long as such Lender Party remains lawfully able to do so), provide each of the US Administrative Agent and the US Borrower with two original Internal Revenue Service forms 1001 or 4224 or (in the case of a US Lender or US Issuing Bank that has certified in writing to the US Administrative Agent that it is not a "bank" as defined in Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Internal Revenue Code) form W-8 (and, if such Lender or Issuing Bank delivers a form W-8, a certificate representing that such Lender Party is not a "bank" for purposes of Section 881(c) of the Internal Revenue Code, is not a 10-percent shareholder (within the meaning of Section 871(h)(3)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code) of any Borrower and is not a controlled foreign corporation related to any Borrower (within the meaning of Section 864(d)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code)), as appropriate, or any successor or other form prescribed by the Internal Revenue Service, certifying that such Lender or Issuing Bank is exempt from or entitled to a reduced rate of United States interest withholding tax on payments pursuant to this Agreement or the Notes or, in the case of a Lender Party providing a form W-8, certifying that such Lender Party is a foreign corporation, partnership, estate or trust and, if required, in the case of any other US Lender, an Internal Revenue Service form W-9, or any successor form, certifying that such Lender Party is entitled to an exemption from United States backup withholding tax. If the forms provided by any such Lender Party at the time such Lender Party first becomes a party to the Credit Agreement indicates a United States interest withholding tax rate in excess of zero, withholding tax at such rate shall be considered excluded from Taxes unless and until such Lender Party provides the appropriate form certifying that a lesser rate applies, whereupon withholding tax at such lesser rate only shall be considered excluded from Taxes for periods governed by such form; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, if at the date of the Assignment and Acceptance pursuant to which a Lender Party becomes a party to this Agreement, the Lender Party assignor was entitled to payments under subsection (a) in respect of United States withholding tax with respect to interest paid at such date, then, to such extent, the term Taxes shall include (in addition to withholding taxes that may be imposed in the future or other amounts otherwise includable in Taxes) United States withholding tax, if any, applicable with respect to the Lender Party assignee on such date. (f) For any period with respect to which a US Lender or US Issuing Bank has failed to provide the US Borrower with the appropriate form described in subsection (e) (OTHER THAN if such failure is due to a change in law occurring after the date on which a form originally was required to be provided or if such form otherwise is not required under subsection (e)), such Lender Party shall not be entitled to indemnification under subsection (a) or (c) with respect to Taxes imposed by the United States by reason of such failure; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that should a Lender Party become subject to Taxes because of its failure to deliver a form required hereunder, the Guarantors shall take such steps as such Lender Party shall reasonably request to assist such Lender Party to recover such Taxes. (g) Each Australian Guarantor acknowledges that Section 261 of the ITAA may render void its obligation to make a payment under this Section 5. However, each Australian Guarantor warrants that even if this is the case, and it would not otherwise be obliged to make a payment under this Section 5, it will make such payment as contemplated by this Section 5 and that it is in its interests to do so. Each Australian Guarantor acknowledges that each Lender Party relies on the warranty in this Section 5(g) in entering into this Agreement and that breach of such warranty is to the detriment of each Lender Party. Failure by any Australian Guarantor to make a payment under this Section 5 does not constitute an Event of Default under Section 6.01(a)(i) or (ii) of the Credit Agreement or under Section 6.01(d) of the Credit Agreement. Each Australian Guarantor waives any right it may have to reimbursement of money paid under this Section 5(g) (including any payment made in accordance with the warranty contained in this Section 5(g)) and also releases each Lender Party from any claim such Australian Guarantor may have against such Lender Party to refund or repay amounts so paid, whether that right or claim arises by reason of the obligations under this Section 2.14 being void under section 261 of the ITAA or by reason of money paid under mistake of any nature as to the extent of such Australian Guarantors' obligations having regard to section 261 or for any other reason relating to laws as to insolvency. (h) In the event that an additional payment is made under Section 5(a) or (c) for the account of any Lender and such Lender determines that it has received or been granted a refund or a credit (other than a foreign tax credit) against or release or remission for, or repayment of, any tax paid or payable by it in respect of or calculated with reference to the deduction or withholding giving rise to such payment, such Lender shall, to the extent that it can do so without prejudice to the retention of the amount of such refund, credit, relief, remission or repayment, pay to the Guarantor that made such additional payment such amount as such Lender shall have determined to be attributable to such deduction or withholding and which will leave such Lender (after such payment) in no better or worse position than it would have been in if such Guarantor had not been required to make such deduction or withholding. If any Lender shall become aware that it is entitled to receive a refund and that the receipt of such refund would give rise to an obligation under this Section 5(h) to pay an amount to any Guarantor, such Lender shall, within a reasonable time of becoming so aware, notify such Guarantor of the availability of such refund and shall, upon written request of such Guarantor, make reasonable efforts, at such Guarantor's expense, to obtain such refund. Nothing herein contained shall interfere with the right of each Lender to arrange its tax affairs in whatever manner it thinks fit nor oblige any Lender to claim any tax credit (except as expressly provided in the preceding sentence) or to disclose any information relating to its tax affairs or any computations in respect thereof. Nothing herein contained shall require any Lender to do anything that would prejudice its ability to benefit from any other credits, reliefs, remissions or repayments to which it may be entitled. (i) Any Lender Party claiming any additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section 5 agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to file any certificate or document reasonably requested by any Guarantor or to change the jurisdiction of its Appropriate Lending Office if filing such certificate or document or making such change would avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, any such additional amounts that may thereafter accrue and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender Party, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender Party. (j) Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of the Guarantors hereunder or under any other Loan Document, the agreements and obligations of the Guarantors contained in this Section 5 shall survive the payment in full of the Guaranteed Obligations and all other amounts payable under this Guaranty. SECTION 6. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES. Each Guarantor hereby represents and warrants as follows: (a) There are no conditions precedent to the effectiveness of this Guaranty that have not been satisfied or waived. (b) Such Guarantor has, independently and without reliance upon any Administrative Agent or any other Guaranteed Party and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Guaranty, and such Guarantor has established means satisfactory to such Guarantor of obtaining from each Loan Party on a continuing basis information pertaining to the financial condition, operations, properties and prospects of such other Loan Party. (c) Such Guarantor benefits from executing this Guaranty. (d) Each Guarantor hereby confirms to the US Administrative Agent and the other Guaranteed Parties that each of the representations and warranties set forth in the Loan Documents that are made by, on behalf of, or with respect to such Guarantor by any Borrower are true and correct. Each Guarantor hereby confirms and agrees that, so long as any Obligations under the Loan Documents shall remain unpaid, any Letter of Credit or BA Obligation shall be outstanding or any Lender Party shall have any Commitment, such Guarantor will perform and observe all of the terms, covenants and agreements set forth in the Loan Documents on its part to be performed or observed or that any Borrower has agreed to cause such Guarantor to perform or observe. SECTION 7. AMENDMENTS, RELEASE, ETC. (a) No amendment or waiver of any provision of this Guaranty and no consent to any departure by any Guarantor therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the US Administrative Agent (with the consent or at the direction of the Required Lenders) and, in the case of any such amendment, by each Guarantor (except as set forth in Section 7(b)), and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that no amendment, waiver or consent shall, unless in writing and signed by all of the Lender Parties (other than any Lender Party that is, at such time, a Defaulting Lender), (i) further reduce or limit the liability of any Guarantor hereunder, (ii) postpone any date fixed for payment hereunder or (iii) change the number of Lender Parties required to take any action hereunder; PROVIDED, FURTHER, that upon any sale of 100% of the capital stock of any Guarantor which is permitted under the Credit Agreement, the US Administrative Agent is authorized to, and shall, release such Guarantor from all obligations hereunder upon satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 8.01(b) relating to the release of such capital stock from the Lien of the Pledge Agreement. (b) Upon the execution and delivery to the US Administrative Agent by any Person of an Amendment to Guaranty in substantially the form of Exhibit L to the Credit Agreement, which Amendment to Guaranty need not be executed by any other Guarantor, such Person shall be and become a Guarantor hereunder, and each reference in this Guaranty to a "Guarantor" shall include such Person and each reference in any other Loan Document to a "Guarantor" or a "Loan Party" shall include such Person. SECTION 8. NOTICES, ETC. All notices and other communications provided for hereunder shall be in writing (including telegraphic, telecopy or telex communication) and mailed, telegraphed, telecopied, telexed or delivered to it, if to any Borrower, at its address specified in Section 8.02 of the Credit Agreement, if to any other Guarantor, at its address set forth beneath its signature on the signature pages hereto or in the Amendment to Guaranty pursuant to which such Person became a Guarantor, as the case may be, if to the US Administrative Agent or any Lender Party, at its address specified in the Credit Agreement, or as to any party at such other address as shall be designated by such party in a written notice to each other party. All such notices and other communications shall, when mailed, telegraphed, telecopied or telexed, be effective when deposited in the mails, delivered to the telegraph company, transmitted by telecopier or confirmed by telex answerback, respectively. SECTION 9. NO WAIVER; REMEDIES. No failure on the part of the Collateral Agent or any other Guaranteed Party to exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right. The remedies herein provided are cumulative and not exclusive of any remedies provided by law. SECTION 10. RIGHT OF SET-OFF. Upon (a) the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default and (b) the making of the request or the granting of the consent specified by Section 6.01 of the Credit Agreement to authorize the US Administrative Agent to declare the Notes due and payable pursuant to the provisions of said Section 6.01, each Lender Party and each of its respective Affiliates is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) at any time held and other indebtedness at any time owing by such Lender Party or such Affiliate to or for the credit or the account of any Guarantor against any and all of the Obligations of such Guarantor now or hereafter existing under this Guaranty, whether or not such Lender Party shall have made any demand under this Guaranty and although such Obligations may be unmatured. Each Lender Party agrees promptly to notify the relevant Guarantor after any such set-off and application; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application. The rights of each Lender Party and its respective Affiliates under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including, without limitation, other rights of set-off) that such Lender Party and its respective Affiliates may have. SECTION 11. INDEMNIFICATION. Without limitation on any other Obligations of any Guarantor or remedies of the Guaranteed Parties under this Guaranty, each Guarantor shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, indemnify, defend and save and hold harmless each Guaranteed Party from and against, and shall pay on demand, any and all losses, liabilities, damages, costs, expenses and charges (including the reasonable fees and disbursements of such Guaranteed Party's legal counsel) suffered or incurred by such Guaranteed Party as a result of any failure of any Guaranteed Obligations to be the legal, valid and binding obligations of the relevant Borrower enforceable against such Borrower in accordance with their terms. SECTION 12. CONTINUING GUARANTY; ASSIGNMENTS UNDER THE CREDIT AGREEMENT. This Guaranty is a continuing guaranty and shall (a) remain in full force and effect until the payment in full in cash of all Obligations under the Loan Documents, the expiration or termination of all Letters of Credit and BA Obligations and the termination of the Commitments (it being understood that each Bank Hedge Agreement and Existing Hedge Agreement shall, unless a Default under Section 6.01(f) of the Credit Agreement then exists, cease to be a Loan Document for purposes hereof and cease to be guaranteed hereby upon the payment in full in cash of all Obligations under the Credit Agreement, the Notes and the termination of the Commitments, and the expiration or termination of all Letters of Credit and BA Obligations), (b) be binding upon each Guarantor, its successors and assigns and (c) inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Collateral Agent and each other Guaranteed Party and their respective successors, transferees and assigns. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing clause (c), subject to Section 8.07 of the Credit Agreement, any Guaranteed Party may assign or otherwise transfer all or any portion of its rights and obligations under the Credit Agreement (including, without limitation, all or any portion of its Commitment, the Accommodations owing to it and the Note or Notes held by it) to any other Person, and such other Person shall thereupon become vested with all the benefits in respect thereof granted to such Guaranteed Party herein or otherwise, in each case as and to the extent provided in Section 8.07 of the Credit Agreement. Each Guarantor acknowledges that upon any Person becoming a Lender Party such Person shall be a Guaranteed Party hereunder. SECTION 13. GOVERNING LAW. This Guaranty shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York. SECTION 14. JURISDICTION, ETC. (A) SUBMISSION TO JURISDICTION. Each Guarantor hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of any New York State court or federal court of the United States of America sitting in New York City, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Guaranty or any of the other Loan Documents to which it is a party, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each Guarantor hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in any such New York State court or, to the extent permitted by law, in such federal court. Each Guarantor agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law. Each Guarantor hereby agrees that service of process in any such action or proceeding may be made upon CT Corporation Systems, 1633 Broadway, New York, New York 10019 (the "PROCESS AGENT") and each Guarantor hereby irrevocably appoints the Process Agent its authorized agent to accept such service of process, and agrees that the failure of the Process Agent to give any notice of any such service of process shall not impair or affect the validity of such service or of any judgment rendered in any action or proceeding based thereon. Each Guarantor hereby further irrevocably consents to the service of process in any action or proceeding in such courts by the mailing thereof by any parties hereto by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, to such Guarantor at its address specified pursuant to Section 8. Nothing in this Guaranty shall affect any right that any party may otherwise have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Guaranty or any of the other Loan Documents in the courts of any jurisdiction. To the extent that any Guarantor has or hereafter may acquire any immunity from jurisdiction of any court or from any legal process (whether through service or notice, attachment prior to judgment, attachment in aid of execution, execution or otherwise) with respect to itself or its property, such Guarantor hereby irrevocably waives such immunity in respect of its obligations under this Guaranty and the other Loan Documents. (B) WAIVERS REGARDING VENUE, INCONVENIENT VENUE. Each Guarantor irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Guaranty or any of the other Loan Documents to which it is a party in any New York State or federal court. Each Guarantor hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court. SECTION 15. JUDGMENT. (A) RATE OF EXCHANGE. If, for the purpose of obtaining judgment in any court, it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder, under any Note or Notes or under any other Loan Document (including, without limitation, all or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations) in another currency into US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, the parties hereto agree, to the fullest extent that they may effectively do so, that the rate of exchange used shall be that at which, in accordance with normal banking procedures, a Lender Party could purchase such other currency with US Dollars in New York City, New York or Canadian Dollars in Toronto, Ontario at 9:00 A.M. (New York City time or Toronto time, respectively) or Australian Dollars in Sydney, Australia at 9:00 A.M. (Sydney time), as the case may be, on the Business Day immediately preceding that on which final judgment is given, together with any premiums and costs of exchange payable in connection with such purchase. (B) INDEMNITY. The obligation of each Guarantor in respect of any sum due from it to any Guaranteed Party hereunder, under any Note or Notes or under any other Loan Document shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency other than US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day next succeeding receipt by such Guaranteed Party of any sum adjudged to be so due in such other currency, such Guaranteed Party may, in accordance with normal banking procedures, purchase US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, with such other currency. If the US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, so purchased are less than the sum originally due to such Guaranteed Party in US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, each Guarantor agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, to indemnify such Guaranteed Party against such loss, and if the US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars so purchased exceed the sum originally due to any Guaranteed Party in US Dollars, Canadian Dollars or Australian Dollars, as the case may be, such Guaranteed Party agrees to remit to such Guarantor such excess. SECTION 16. EXECUTION IN COUNTERPARTS. This Guaranty may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to this Guaranty or any other Loan Document or any consent, waiver or amendment relating hereto or thereto by telecopier shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Guaranty, such other Loan Document or such consent, waiver or amendment, as the case may be. SECTION 17. WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. Each Guarantor hereby irrevocably waives all right to trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim (whether based on contract, tort or otherwise) arising out of or relating to this Guaranty, any of the Loan Documents, the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or the actions of any Administrative Agent or any other Guaranteed Party in the negotiation, administration, performance or enforcement hereof or thereof. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, each Guarantor has caused this Guaranty to be duly executed and delivered by its officer thereunto duly authorized as of the date first above written. PEGASUS GOLD INC.

Based on and subject to the foregoing, and subject to the qualifications and exceptions set forth herein, we are of the opinion that: -4- April 19, 1996 1. Each Credit Document constitutes the valid and legally binding obligation of each Loan Party which is a party thereto, enforceable against such Loan Party in accordance with its terms. 2. The execution and delivery by each of the Loan Parties of the Credit Documents to which it is a party, the borrowings and the performance of its payment obligations thereunder and the granting of the security interests to be granted by it pursuant to the Collateral Documents, will not result in a violation of any law, statute, rule or regulation of the United States of America or the State of New York, applicable to such Loan Party and, in our experience, applicable to transactions similar to transactions contemplated by the Credit Documents generally. 3. No authorization, consent, or approval by, or filing with, any United States federal or New York State governmental or regulatory authority pursuant to any present law or regulation of the United States of America or the State of New York applicable to such Loan Party and, in our experience, applicable to transactions similar to transactions contemplated by the Credit Documents generally is required for the execution or delivery by each of the Loan Parties of each Credit Document to which it is a party the borrowings and the performance of its payment obligations thereunder and the granting of the security interests to be granted by it pursuant to the Collateral Documents, except filings required for the perfection of security interests with respect to Collateral granted pursuant to the Collateral Documents, other than the Pledged Shares referred to below. 4.

Assuming the US Collateral Agent acquires its interest in the Pledged Shares in good faith and without notice of any adverse claims, the US Collateral Agent will acquire its security interest in the Pledged Shares free of adverse claims. 5. The making of the Advances under the Credit Agreement and the application of the proceeds thereof as provided in and in accordance with the Credit Agreement do not violate Regulation G, T, U or X of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. 6. No Loan Party is an "investment company" or a company "controlled" by an "investment company" within the meaning of and subject to regulation under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. Our opinions in paragraphs 1 and 4 above are subject to the effects of bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent conveyance, reorganization, moratorium and other similar laws relating to or affecting creditors' rights generally, general equitable principles (whether -5- April 19, 1996 considered in a proceeding in equity or at law) and an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing. Our opinion in paragraph 1 above also is subject to the qualification that certain provisions of the Pledge Agreement and the Guaranty are or may be unenforceable, ineffective and/or qualified in whole or in part under the laws of the State of New York (including judicial decisions), although (subject to the limitations in the preceding sentence) the Pledge Agreement and the Guaranty and the laws of the State of New York contain adequate remedial provisions for the practical realization of the principal rights and benefits purported to be afforded thereby. Our opinion in paragraph 4 is limited to Article 8 of the New York UCC and, therefore, such opinion does not address (i) laws of jurisdictions other than New York and New York except for Article 8 of the New York UCC and (ii) collateral of a type not subject to Article 8 of the New York UCC. We do not express any opinion as to: (a) any provision of the Credit Documents which is intended to establish any standard other than any standard set forth in the New York UCC as the measure of the performance by any party thereto of such party's obligations of good faith, diligence, reasonableness or care or the fulfillment of the duties imposed on any secured party with respect to the disposition or redemption of collateral, accounting for surplus proceeds of collateral or accepting collateral in discharge of liabilities; (b) any provision of the Credit Documents which is intended to permit modification thereof only by means of an agreement signed in writing by the parties thereto; (c) Section 2.08(c) of the Credit Agreement (and corresponding provisions in each of the other Credit Documents) insofar as they relate to post-judgment interest rates; (d) any provision of the Credit Documents (i) imposing penalties or forfeitures or (ii) requiring payment of attorneys' fees, except to the extent such fees are reasonable; (e) except as set forth in paragraph 4, the attachment, creation or perfection of any Liens purported to be created under the Pledge Agreement or any other Credit Document; (f) without limiting the opinion set forth in paragraph 4, the priority of any Liens purported to be created under the Pledge Agreement or any other Credit Document; (g) the perfection of any security interest in any proceeds; -6- April 19, 1996 (h) the right, title or interest of any Person in or to, or the condition of title or ownership of, or the existence of, any property purported to be subject to the Pledge Agreement; (i) any provisions contrary to Section 9-311 of the New York UCC; (j) the effect of the compliance or noncompliance with any federal or state laws or regulations applicable to any of the Lenders or their affiliates because of their legal or regulatory status or the nature of their businesses; (k) any provision of any Credit Document insofar as it provides that any Lender or other Person may exercise set-off or similar rights other than in accordance with applicable law; (l) any provision of the Credit Documents relating to indemnification, contribution or exculpation in connection with violations of any securities laws or public policy, or in connection with willful, reckless or criminal acts or gross negligence of the indemnified or exculpated Person or the Person receiving contribution; (m) any purported waiver, release, disclaimer, consent or other agreement to similar effect (all of the foregoing, collectively, a "Waiver") by any Person under any of the Credit Documents to the extent limited by Section 1-102(3) or 9-501(3) of the New York UCC or other provisions of applicable law (including judicial decisions), or to the extent that such Waiver applies to a right, claim, duty, defense or ground for discharge otherwise existing or occurring as a matter of law (including judicial decisions) which cannot be waived as a matter of law (including judicial decisions); (n) any provision of the Credit Documents which relates to forum selection (including, without limitation, any waiver of any objection to venue in any court or of any objection that a court is an inconvenient forum); (o) any provision of the Pledge Agreement or the Guaranty that provides that a Loan Party's liability thereunder shall not be affected by actions or failures to act on the part of the recipient of such Credit Document or by amendments or waivers of provisions of documents governing the obligations; (p) any provision in the Credit Documents that purports to permit the US Administrative Agent or any other Person to sell or otherwise dispose of, or purchase, any collateral subject to the lien of the Credit Documents, or enforce any other right or remedy under the Credit Documents (including, without limitation, any self-help remedy or remedy involving taking possession), except in compliance with the New York UCC and other applicable laws; (q) changes in the status of the security interest of the US Administrative Agent or any other Person in the Collateral under Sections 363, 364(d) or 1129(b) of the United States Bankruptcy Code (11 U.S.C. Sections 363, 364(d) and 1129(b)); -7- April 19, 1996 (r) the effect of Section 552 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (relating to property acquired by a pledgor after the commencement of a case under the United States Bankruptcy Code with respect to such pledgor) and Section 506(c) (relating to certain costs and expenses of a trustee in preserving or disposing of collateral); (s) the applicability to any transfer by, or obligations under the Credit Documents of, the Loan Parties of Section 548 of the United States Bankruptcy Code or Article 10 of the New York Debtor and Creditor Law relating to fraudulent transfers and obligations; (t) as to the enforceability of Section 8.11 of the Credit Agreement (and corresponding provisions in each of the other Credit Documents); (u) the provisions of the Credit Agreement or any other Credit Document that purport to establish evidentiary standards or to make determinations conclusive; (v) the waiver by any Loan Party of any immunities from the jurisdictions of courts (other than the New York State or Federal courts sitting in The City of New York); (w) whether or not a judgment by a New York state or federal court would be given in a currency other than in US Dollars; (x) without limiting the opinion set forth in paragraph 4, as to the enforceability of any notice of identification issued pursuant to the Pledge Agreement; (y) any provision of the Credit Documents which provides for the validity or perfection of any security interest created thereunder or any remedy thereunder to be governed by the law of any jurisdiction other than New York. In addition, we express no opinion as to the enforceability of any provision of any Credit Document whereby any Loan Party purports to submit to the subject matter jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. We note the limitations of 28 U.S.C. Section 1332 on federal court jurisdiction where diversity of citizenship is lacking, and we also note that such submissions cannot supersede that court's discretion in determining whether to transfer an action from one federal court to another under Section 28 U.S.C. Section 1404(a). We are members of the Bar of the State of New York, and we do not express any opinions herein concerning any law other than the laws of the State of New York and the federal laws of the United States of America. -8- April 19, 1996 This opinion is rendered only to you and is solely for your benefit in connection with the execution and delivery of the Credit Documents. This opinion may not be relied upon by you for any other purpose, or relied upon by, or, except with respect to an Eligible Assignee, furnished to, any other person, firm, or corporation for any purpose, without our prior written consent.

In connection with the execution and delivery of the Credit Agreement referred to below, I have been requested to render this opinion with respect to PGI, PGC and the following subsidiaries of PGI: (a) Pegasus Gold Australia Pty Ltd, an Australian corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of PGI ("PGA"; and together with PGI and PGC, the "BORROWERS"); (b) each of the United States subsidiaries of PGI set forth on Part I of Schedule II hereto (collectively, the "DOMESTIC SUBSIDIARIES"; and together with PGC, the "DOMESTIC LOAN PARTIES"); and (c) each of the foreign subsidiaries of PGI listed on Part II of Schedule II hereto (the "FOREIGN SUBSIDIARIES"; and together with the Borrowers and the Domestic Subsidiaries, the "LOAN PARTIES"). In connection with this opinion, I have reviewed the following documents: 1. the US $150,000,000 Multicurrency Reducing Revolving Credit Agreement, dated as of April 17, 1996 (the "CREDIT AGREEMENT"; capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Credit Agreement), among the Borrowers, the lenders and issuing banks from time to time parties thereto (collectively, the "LENDERS"), ABN AMRO Australia Limited, as the Non-Pro Rata Lender, ABN AMRO Bank N.V., Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Dresdner Bank AG, New York Branch and The First National Bank of Chicago, as Co-Agents, and Citibank, N.A., Citibank Canada and Citibank Limited, as Administrative Agents for the Lenders; 2. the Notes executed and delivered on the date hereof; 3. the Guaranty; and 4. the Pledge Agreement. The Credit Agreement, the Notes, the Guaranty and the Pledge Agreement are collectively referred to herein as the "CREDIT DOCUMENTS". This opinion is being delivered pursuant to Section 3.01(f) of the Credit Agreement. In connection with this opinion, I have examined the originals, or certified, conformed or reproduction copies, of all records, agreements, instruments and other documents and have made such other investigations as I have deemed necessary in connection with the opinions expressed herein (including, without limitation, an executed counterpart of the Credit Agreement, each Note executed and delivered on the date hereof, the Guaranty and the Pledge Agreement). To the extent my opinion expressed below relates to matters not expressly covered hereby that are set forth in (a) the opinion of Lawson Lundell Lawson & McIntosh, Canadian counsel to the Loan Parties or (b) Allen Allen & Hemsley, Australian counsel to the Loan Parties, each dated even date herewith and delivered to you in respect of the Credit Agreement, I have, with your permission, but without having made any independent investigation with respect thereto, assumed the correctness of the matters set forth therein, my opinion being subject to the assumptions, qualifications and limitations set forth in such opinions with respect thereto. In rendering the opinions expressed below, I have further assumed, without any independent investigation or verification of any kind, that: (i) each party to the Credit Documents (other than each Domestic Loan Party) has been duly organized and is validly existing and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of incorporation and of each other jurisdiction in which the conduct of its business or the ownership of its property makes such qualification necessary; (ii) each party to the Credit Documents (other than each Domestic Loan Party) has full power and authority to execute, deliver and perform the Credit Documents to which it is a party; (iii) the execution, delivery and performance of the Agreements by the parties thereto (other than each Domestic Loan Party) have been duly authorized by all requisite corporate action on the part of such parties; (iv) the Credit Documents have been duly executed and delivered by the parties thereto (other than by each Loan Party); (v) the execution, delivery and performance of the Credit Documents by the parties thereto (other than by each Loan Party) do not (A) violate the charter, certificate of incorporation, by-laws or other organizational documents of any such party, (B) violate or require any order, consent, approval, license, authorization, validation, filing, recording, registration or exemption not obtained or made under, any applicable provision of any law, statute, rule or regulation or any order, writ, injunction or decree of any court or other governmental authority binding upon such party or (C) constitute a violation or breach of, or require any consent not obtained under, any agreement or instrument to which such party is a party or by which it is bound; (vi) the Credit Documents constitute the valid and legally binding obligations of the parties to the Credit Documents (other than the Loan Parties) enforceable against such parties in accordance with their respective term, subject to the effects of bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent conveyance, reorganization, moratorium and other similar laws relating to or affecting creditors' rights generally, general equitable principles (whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law) and an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing; and (vii) the shares of stock issued by PGA and identified in the Notice of Identification dated April 18, 1996 (the "PGA Pledged Shares"), are "certificated securities" under the New York UCC. Based on and subject to the foregoing, and subject to the qualifications and exceptions set forth herein, I am of the opinion that: 1. Each Domestic Loan Party (a) has been duly incorporated and is validly existing and in good standing as a corporation under the laws of its jurisdiction of incorporation, (b) has the corporate power and authority to execute, deliver and perform its payment obligations under each of the Credit Documents to which it is a party and to grant the security interests to be granted by it pursuant to the Collateral Documents and, with respect to PGC, to borrow under the Credit Agreement, (c) has taken all necessary corporate action to authorize the execution and delivery by it of the Credit Documents to which it is a party and, with respect to PGC, its borrowings thereunder and the performance of its payment obligations thereunder and (d) has duly executed and delivered each Credit Document to which it is a party. 2. Each Credit Document constitutes the valid and legally binding obligation of each Loan Party which is a party thereto, enforceable against such Loan Party in accordance with the terms thereof. 3. The execution and delivery by each of the Loan Parties of the Credit Documents to which it is a party, the borrowings and the performance of its payment obligations thereunder and the granting of the security interests to be granted pursuant to the Collateral Documents (a) will not result in a violation of (i) the certificate of incorporation or by-laws of such Loan Party (ii) any law, order, decree, statute, judgment, rule or regulation of the United States of America or any State thereof, applicable to such Loan Party, (b) will not breach or result in a default under any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, loan agreement or other agreement or instrument binding on such Loan Party, and (c) will not result in the creation of any Lien upon or with respect to the Loan Parties' properties pursuant to the terms of any of such agreements, other than pursuant to the Loan Documents. 4. No authorization, consent, or approval by, or filing with, any United States federal or state governmental or regulatory authority pursuant to any present law or regulation of the United States of America or any state applicable to such Loan Party is required for the execution or delivery by each of the Loan Parties of each Agreement to which it is a party, the borrowings and the performance of its payment obligations thereunder and the granting of the security interests to be granted pursuant to the Collateral Documents, except filings required for the perfection of security interests with respect to Collateral granted pursuant to the Collateral Documents, other than the Pledged Shares referred to below. 5. All of the shares of capital stock described on Schedule I to the Pledge Agreement that were issued by a Domestic Loan Party have been duly authorized and validly issued and are fully paid and non-assessable. 6. The Pledge Agreement, together with the delivery to the US Collateral Agent (as defined in the Pledge Agreement) in the State of New York of the PGA Pledged Shares and the certificates representing the shares of stock of each Domestic Loan Party which are identified on Schedule I to the Pledge Agreement and which are purported to be pledged by the respective Loan Party thereunder (together with the PGA Pledged Shares, the "Pledged Shares") and appropriately executed stock powers, creates in favor of the US Collateral Agent a perfected security interest under the New York UCC in such Pledged Shares. Assuming the US Collateral Agent acquires its interest in the Pledged Shares in good faith and without notice of any adverse claims, the US Collateral Agent will acquire its security interest in the Pledged Shares free of adverse claims. 7. No litigation, proceeding, investigation or inquiry is pending or, to my knowledge, threatened against any Loan Party with respect to the Credit Documents or the transactions contemplated thereby. 8. The making of the Advances under the Credit Agreement and the application of the proceeds thereof as provided in and in accordance with the Credit Agreement do not violate Regulation G, T, U or X of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. 9. No Loan Party is an "investment company" or a company "controlled" by an "investment company" within the meaning of and subject to regulation under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. My opinions in paragraphs 2 and 6 above are subject to the effects of bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent conveyance, reorganization, moratorium and other similar laws relating to or affecting creditors' rights generally, general equitable principles (whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law) and an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing. My opinion in paragraph 2 above also is subject to the qualification that certain provisions of the Pledge Agreement and the Guaranty are or may be unenforceable, ineffective and/or qualified in whole or in part under the laws of the State of New York (including judicial decisions), although (subject to the limitations in the preceding sentence) the Pledge Agreement and the Guaranty and the laws of the State of New York contain adequate remedial provisions for the practical realization of the principal rights and benefits purported to be afforded thereby. My opinion in paragraph 6 is limited to Article 8 of the New York UCC and, therefore, such opinion does not address (i) laws of jurisdictions other than New York and New York except for Article 8 of the New York UCC and (ii) collateral of a type not subject to Article 8 of the New York UCC. I do not express any opinion as to: (a) any provision of the Credit Documents which is intended to establish any standard other than any standard set forth in the New York UCC as the measure of the performance by any party thereto of such party's obligations of good faith, diligence, reasonableness or care or the fulfillment of the duties imposed on any secured party with respect to the disposition or redemption of collateral, accounting for surplus proceeds of collateral or accepting collateral in discharge of liabilities; (b) any provision of the Credit Documents which is intended to permit modification thereof only by means of an agreement signed in writing by the parties thereto; (c) Section 2.08(c) of the Credit Agreement (and corresponding provisions in each of the other Credit Documents) insofar as they relate to post-judgment interest rates; (d) any provision of the Credit Documents (i) imposing penalties or forfeitures or (ii) requiring payment of attorneys' fees, except to the extent such fees are reasonable; (e) except as set forth in paragraph 6, the attachment, creation or perfection of any Liens purported to be created under the Pledge Agreement or any other Credit Document; (f) without limiting the opinion set forth in paragraph 6, the priority of any Liens purported to be created under the Pledge Agreement or any other Agreement; (g) the perfection of any security interest in any proceeds; (h) the right, title or interest of any Person in or to, or the condition of title or ownership of, or the existence of, any property purported to be subject to the Pledge Agreement; (i) any provisions contrary to Section 9-311 of the New York UCC; (j) the effect of the compliance or noncompliance with any federal or state laws or regulations applicable to any of the Lenders or their affiliates because of their legal or regulatory status or the nature of their businesses; (k) any provision of any Credit Document insofar as it provides that any Lender or other Person may exercise set-off or similar rights other than in accordance with applicable law; (l) any provision of the Credit Documents relating to indemnification, contribution or exculpation in connection with violations of any securities laws or public policy, or in connection with willful, reckless or criminal acts or gross negligence of the indemnified or exculpated Person or the Person receiving contribution; (m) any purported waiver, release, disclaimer, consent or other agreement to similar effect (all of the foregoing, collectively, a "Waiver") by any Person under any of the Credit Documents to the extent limited by Section 1-102(3) or 9-501(3) of the New York UCC or other provisions of applicable law (including judicial decisions), or to the extent that such Waiver applies to a right, claim, duty, defense or ground for discharge otherwise existing or occurring as a matter of law (including judicial decisions) and which cannot be waived as a matter of law (including judicial decisions); (n) any provision of the Credit Documents which relates to forum selection (including, without limitation, any waiver of any objection to venue in any court or of any objection that a court is an inconvenient forum); (o) any provision of the Pledge Agreement or the Guaranty that provides that a Loan Party's liability thereunder shall not be affected by actions or failures to act on the part of the recipient of such Credit Document or by amendments or waivers of provisions of documents governing the obligations; (p) any provision in the Credit Documents that purports to permit the US Administrative Agent or any other Person to sell or otherwise dispose of, or purchase, any collateral subject to the lien of the Credit Documents, or enforce any other right or remedy under the Credit Documents (including, without limitation, any self-help remedy or remedy involving taking possession), except in compliance with the New York UCC and other applicable laws; (q) changes in the status of the security interest of the US Administrative Agent or any other Person in the Collateral under Sections 363, 364(d) or 1129(b) of the United States Bankruptcy Code (11 U.S.C. Sections 363, 364(d) and 1129(b)); (r) the effect of Section 552 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (relating to property acquired by a pledgor after the commencement of a case under the United States Bankruptcy Code with respect to such pledgor) and Section 506(c) (relating to certain costs and expenses of a trustee in preserving or disposing of collateral); (s) the applicability to any transfer by, or obligations under the Credit Documents of, the Loan Parties of Section 548 of the United States Bankruptcy Code or Article 10 of the New York Debtor and Creditor law relating to fraudulent transfers and obligations; (t) as to the enforceability of Section 8.11 of the Credit Agreement (and corresponding provisions in each of the other Credit Documents); (u) the provisions of the Credit Agreement or any other Credit Document that purport to establish evidentiary standards or to make determinations conclusive; (v) the waiver by any Loan Party of any immunities from the jurisdictions of courts (other than the New York State or Federal courts sitting in the City of New York); (w) whether or not a judgment by a New York state or federal court would be given in a currency other than in US Dollars; (x) without limiting the opinion set forth in paragraph 6, as to the enforceability of any notice of identification issued pursuant to the Pledge Agreement; (y) any provision of the Credit Documents which provides for the validity or perfection of any security interest created thereunder or any remedy thereunder to be governed by the law of any jurisdiction other than New York. In addition, I express no opinion as to the enforceability of any provision of any Credit Document whereby any Loan Party purports to submit to the subject matter jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. I note the limitations of 28 U.S.C. Section 1332 on federal court jurisdiction where diversity of citizenship is lacking, and I also note that such submissions cannot supersede the court's direction in determining whether to transfer an action from one court to another under Section 18 U.S.C. Section 1404(a). I am a member of the Bar of the State of New York.

[ALLEN ALLEN & HAMSLEY LETTERHEAD] 19 April 1996 To: Each of the Lender Parties as defined in and party to the Credit Agreement referred to below c/- Citibank, N.A., as US Administrative Agent 399 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10043 Dear Sirs PEGASUS GOLD AUSTRALIA PTY LTD We have acted for Pegasus Gold Inc (PGI), Pegasus Gold Corporation (PGC) and Pegasus Gold Australia Pty Ltd (PGA) in connection with the Credit Agreement (the CREDIT AGREEMENT) dated as of 17 April 1996 between PGI, PGC, PGA, the Initial Lenders and Initial Issuing Banks named in the Credit Agreement, Citibank, N.A, Citibank Canada and Citibank Limited as Administrative Agents, ABN AMRO Australia Limited as Non-Pro Rata Lender and the Co-Agents named in the Credit Agreement. Definitions in the Credit Agreement apply in this opinion but Document means a document listed in paragraph 1(a), (b), (c), (d) or (e) below, and RELEVANT JURISDICTION means the Commonwealth of Australia, the Northern Territory, the Australian Capital Territory or New South Wales. No assumption or qualification in this opinion limits any other assumption or qualification in it. 1. DOCUMENTS We have examined faxed copies or photocopies of the following documents: (a) executed counterparts of the Credit Agreement; (b) an executed counterpart of each Australian Borrower Note; (c) executed counterparts of the Guaranty; (d) executed counterparts of the Pledge Agreement; (e) an executed counterpart of the Acknowledgment Deed; (f) certified copies of the memorandum and articles of association of PGA; (g) certified copies of extracts of resolutions passed by the Board of Directors of PGA; ALLEN ALLEN & HEMSLEY Page 2 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (h) executed power of attorney (the POWER OF ATTORNEY) in connection with the execution of the Documents by PGA; (i) each certificate of the Secretary of PGA provided under Section 3.01(f)(iv), 3.01(f)(v), and 3.01(f)(vi) of the Credit Agreement; (j) the documents furnished by PGA under Section 3.01(f)(vii)(B)(3) of the Credit Agreement; (k) the solvency certificate furnished by the chief financial officer of PGA under Section 3.01(f)(x) of the Credit Agreement; and (l) a certificate of the Secretary of PGA certifying a copy of the share register of PGA and that the register is in the Northern Territory. 2. ASSUMPTIONS For the purposes of giving this opinion we have assumed the following without further enquiry. Nothing in the documents listed in paragraph 1 or of which those who have worked for PGA in connection with the Facility became aware has made us aware that any of the following assumptions are untrue. (a) The authenticity of all seals and signatures and of any duty stamp or marking. (b) The completeness, and the conformity to original instruments, of all copies submitted to us, and that any document (other than a Document and the Power of Attorney) submitted to us continues in full force and effect. (c) The Documents are within the capacity and powers of, and have been validly authorized, executed and delivered by and are binding on, the parties to them other than PGA. (d) The Power of Attorney has been or will be registered in the Australian Capital Territory. (e) No entity has engaged or will engage in misleading or unconscionable conduct or is or will be involved in or a party to any relevant transaction or any associated activity in a manner or for a purpose not evident on the face of the Documents which might render the Documents or any relevant transaction or associated activity in breach of law, void or voidable. (f) Our opinion in paragraph 4(i) assumes that: (i) each Document has been or will be executed outside Australia; and (ii) no other assets in Australia are charged by the Pledge Agreement except for the shares in PGA. (g) Insofar as any obligation under any Document is to be performed in any jurisdiction other than a Relevant Jurisdiction, its performance will not be illegal or unenforceable under the law of that jurisdiction. (h) Each Document (other than the Acknowledgment Deed) constitutes or will on execution constitute legal, valid and binding obligations of PGA under the laws of New York enforceable in competent courts of that jurisdiction. ALLEN ALLEN & HEMSLEY Page 3 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (i) Formalities for execution by PGA required by the law of the place of execution of each Document have been or will be complied with. (j) The certificates referred to in paragraph 1(i), (j) and (l) are correct as to factual matters. (k) The Commissioner of Taxation of the Commonwealth of Australia will not give any direction under Section 218 or 255 of the ITAA or Section 74 of the Sales Tax Assessment Act 1992 requiring PGA to deduct from any payment to any other party to a Document any amount in respect of Income tax or sales tax payable by that other party in respect of that other party's other Australian source income or sales. 3. Qualifications Our opinion is subject to the following qualifications. (a) We express no opinion as to any laws other than the laws of each Relevant Jurisdiction as in force at the date of this opinion. (b) Our opinion that an obligation or document is enforceable does not mean that the obligation or document can necessarily be enforced in accordance with its terms in all circumstances. In particular; (i) equitable remedies, such as injunction and specific performance, are discretionary; and (ii) the enforceability or an obligation, document or Lien may be affected by statutes of limitation, by estoppel and similar principles, by the doctrine of frustration, by laws concerning insolvency, bankruptcy, liquidation, administration, enforcement of Lien or reorganisation, or by other laws generally affecting creditors' rights or duties. (c) We have relied on a search of public records on file at the offices of the Australian Securities Commission on 19 April 1996 and on a search conducted by our agents in the Northern Territory in reliance on advice from the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory on 18 April 1996. We have also relied on a faxed copy of the ASC Form 304 - Notification of Change to Officeholders signed by PGA on 15 April 1996. (d) We have relied on the assumptions specified in section 164 of the Australian Corporations Law and note that you may do so unless; (i) you have actual knowledge that the matter that you would otherwise be entitled to assume to be correct is not correct; or (ii) your connection or relationship with PGA is such that you ought to know that the matter that you would otherwise be entitled to assume to be correct is not correct. Nothing in the material set out in paragraph I or of which those who have worked for PGA in connection with the Facility become aware indicates anything that would contradict these assumptions. (e) Any provision of a Document that certain calculations, determinations or certificates will be conclusive and binding will not apply if calculations, determinations or certificates are fraudulent or manifestly inaccurate. ALLEN ALLEN & HEMSLEY Page 4 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (f) Any clause providing for the severability of any provision of a Document may not he enforceable in accordance with its terms, as a court may reserve to itself a decision as to whether any provision is severable. (g) The obligation of a party under a Document to pay interest on overdue amounts at a rate higher than the rate applying before the amount fell due may be held to constitute a penalty and be unenforceable. (h) We express no opinion on any provision in a Document requiring written amendments and waivers insofar as it suggests that oral or other modifications, amendments or waivers could not be effectively agreed upon or granted between or by the parties. (i) The courts might not give full effect to an indemnity for legal costs or for penalties on Taxes. (j) By reason of section 261 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 the undertaking by PGA in Section 2.14 of the Credit Agreement and in Section 5 of the Guaranty to pay any amount of Australian withholding tax or income tax imposed on any Lender Party in respect of interest or to pay any additional amount in respect of Australian withholding tax or income tax in respect of interest would be void under Australian law. The Credit Agreement and the Guaranty are governed by New York law. It is arguable that a judgment requiring payment of an amount due under Section 2.14 of the Credit Agreement or Section 5 of the Guaranty, obtained in a court sitting in New York, may be enforced in a court sitting in a Relevant Jurisdiction despite this provision, but we express no concluded view. (k) Our opinion in paragraph 4(f) assumes that: (i) In relation to the pledge by PGA, PGI and Pegasus Gold International, Inc.: (A) the Pledge Agreement will be registered under the Australian Corporations Law not later than 45 days after the date on which it is executed; and (B) no Lien over the Collateral will, before the time of registration of the Pledge Agreement, have been so registered. (ii) No Secured Party (as defined in the Pledge Agreement) had on the date the Pledge Agreement was created notice of any Lien over any of the Collateral and there was not on that date any existing equity, interest or right (excluding a Lien) in any of the Collateral. (iii) Each Pledgor (as defined in the Pledge Agreement) has beneficial and legal title to the Collateral pledged by that Pledgor. (l) That opinion is also qualified to the extent that (in addition to the Liens which may in accordance with the Credit Agreement do so) certain other claims may have or obtain priority over the Pledge Agreement: ALLEN ALLEN & HEMSLEY Page 5 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (i) in relation to the pledge by PGA, PGI and Pegasus Gold International, Inc.: (A) because the priority accorded by virtue of registration under the Australian Corporations Law does not extend to Liens insofar as they are not so registrable (eg Liens over interests in choses in action other than book debts and certain Liens under which the holder has possession of the property subject to the Lien or of documents of title to that property); (B) by virtue of certain exceptions provided by the Australian Corporations Law to the principle that registrable charges take priority according to the order in which they are registered; and (C) because the provisions of Section 2(b) of the Pledge Agreement setting a maximum prospective liability may not be effective; and (ii) because a mortgagee or chargee may in certain circumstances lose Its priority, for example, to a purchaser of a legal estate buying for value without notice, or to a subsequent equitable interest where the chargee has been involved with some postponing conduct. (m) The share register of a company is not conclusive evidence of the shareholders of a company or title to shares because it: (i) does not disclose equitable interests; and (ii) is subject to rectification by a company or a person aggrieved by virtue of section 216H of the Australian Corporations Law. (n) Any transfer of Pledged Shares (as defined in the Pledge Agreement) in accordance with the terms of the Pledge Agreement to a foreign person may require approval under the Foreign Acquisitions and Takeovers Act. (o) Our opinion in paragraph 4(i) is subject to the qualification that share transfer stamp duty may he payable in connection with a transfer of the Pledged Shares (as defined in the Pledge Agreement) following enforcement of the Pledge Agreement. (p) Our opinion in paragraph 4(k) assumes that no entity other than PGI, a Canadian corporation, has a controlling interest in PGA. (q) Our opinion in paragraph 4(l) assumes that: (i) PGI acquired the shares in PGA with proceeds from a public debt raising completed in 1995; (ii) no financial accommodation provided under the Credit Agreement will be used to repay the public debt referred to in sub-paragraph (l); (iii) no financial assistance has otherwise been provided by PGA in connection with the purchase of its shares by PGI. ALLEN ALLEN & HEMSLEY Page 6 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (r) Our opinion in paragraph 4(m) assumes that the solvency certificate referred to in paragraph l(k) is true. (s) Our opinion in paragraph 4(n) assumes that any interest or charges payable under the Loan Documents are not extortionate. If the interest and charges payable under the Loan Documents are market interest rates and market charges, we have no reason to believe that the interest or charges payable under the Loan Documents are extortionate. (t) Our opinion in paragraph 4(o) is subject to the qualification that payments to any Lender Party of interest and amounts in the nature of interest under the Documents will be subject to interest withholding tax under section 128B of the ITAA if that Lender Party is either: (i) not a resident of Australia and the relevant payment is not derived by that party in carrying on a business at or through a permanent establishment of that party in Australia; or (ii) a resident of Australia and the relevant payment is derived by that party in carrying on business at or through a permanent establishment of that party outside Australia. (u) We express no opinion as to any Liens as security over property situated outside any Relevant Jurisdiction, (v) We express no opinion on whether any shareholders agreement or instrument included in the Collateral or debt is capable of being subject to a Lien or as to the legality, validity or enforceability of any shareholders agreement or instrument included in the Collateral or debt which may be subject to a Lien. (w) A judgment by a court in Australia may be given in some cases only in Australian dollars. A judgment of a New York State court or Federal court sitting in New York City would, for the purposes of enforcement, be converted in the Relevant Jurisdiction to Australian dollars at the rate of exchange prevailing on the date of payment or execution. (x) Purported waivers of statutory rights or agreements not to sue or agreements to agree or negotiate or consult may not be enforceable. 4. OPINION Based on the assumptions and subject to the qualifications set out above we are of the following opinion. (a) PGA is incorporated and has not been dissolved under the laws of the Northern Territory. (b) PGA has the corporate power to: (i) enter into and perform its obligations under each Document to which it is a party and the Power of Attorney; and (ii) conduct any business. ALLEN ALLEN & HEMSLEY Page 7 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (c) The execution, delivery and performance by PGA of each Document to which it is a party and the Power of Attorney did not and will not violate in any respect any existing provision of: (i) any law of any Relevant Jurisdiction; or (ii) its memorandum or articles of association. (d) The Acknowledgment Deed will on execution by PGA constitute a legal, valid and binding obligation of PGA enforceable in competent courts of the Relevant Jurisdiction. (e) (i) Each Document is validly executed by PGA in accordance with the law of each Relevant Jurisdiction. (ii) Under the law of each Relevant Jurisdiction, New York law will be applied to each Document, and will be enforceable in competent courts of each Relevant Jurisdiction, if the choice of that law was made in good faith, and except to the extent that (without limiting the assumptions and qualifications set out above). (A) there are mandatory provisions of the law of the Relevant Jurisdiction which must be applied to a transaction covered by a Document; (B) any term of a Document, or any provision of New York State law applicable to a Document, is contrary to the public policy of the Relevant Jurisdiction; (C) the availability or enforceability of certain rights and remedies may be governed or affected by the procedural laws of the Relevant Jurisdiction in courts of the Relevant Jurisdiction; and (D) a court may determine that another court is a more appropriate forum. (iii) We are not currently aware: (A) of any mandatory provisions within the terms of sub-paragraph (ii) above that affect enforceability; or (B) that any term of the Loan Documents is contrary to the public policy of the Relevant Jurisdiction, save, in each case, as set out in the qualifications above and in particular as set out in paragraph 3(j). (iv) There is no further corporate action necessary for PGA to enter into or to perform its obligations under, the Documents. (v) We are not aware of any further corporate action required to be taken by PGA to ensure that each Document will be enforceable against it in competent courts of the Relevant Jurisdiction. ALLEN ALLEN & HEMSLEY Page 8 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (f) If the Pledge Agreement is a valid security having the priority contemplated by it under New York law, the Pledge Agreement will operate as a valid security having the priority contemplated by it under the laws of the Relevant Jurisdictions in relation to property in the Relevant Jurisdiction. (g) (i) The share register of PGA records that PGI is the registered holder of all the issued shares of PGA and that such shares are fully paid. (ii) Each share of PGA pledged by PGI under the Pledge Agreement is: (A) registered on a register maintained by or on behalf of PGA and is represented by a share certificate which certifies the name of the registered holder of the number of fully paid shares specified in the certificate and which states that the certificate must be surrendered to PGA before any transfer of the share can be accepted; (B) of a type commonly issued by Australian proprietary or public companies, including an Australian public company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange; and (C) one of the ordinary shares in the capital of PGA issued by PGA. A transfer of the shares may be registered upon a register maintained on or on behalf of PGA. (h) All authorisations or approvals or other action by, or notice to or filing with, any governmental authority or regulatory body or other third party under the laws of any Relevant Jurisdiction required as of the date of this opinion in connection with the execution, delivery, performance, validity or enforceability of the Documents and the Power of Attorney have been obtained or effected and are in full force and effect. (i) No stamp or registration or similar taxes or charges are payable under the laws of any Relevant Jurisdiction in connection with the execution, delivery, performance and enforcement of the Documents or any transaction contemplated by them other than nominal duty, financial institutions duty and debits tax. (j) It is not necessary or advisable under the laws of any Relevant Jurisdiction to file, register or record any Document other than the registration of the Pledge Agreement with the Australian Securities Commission and those filings, registrations or recordings that have been duly effected or lodged at the date of this opinion. (k) The execution, delivery and performance by PGA of each Document to which it is a party does not breach section 243H of the Australian Corporations Law. (l) The execution, delivery and performance by PGA of each Document to which it is a party does not breach section 205 of the Australian Corporations Law. (m) No transaction contemplated by a Document is an insolvent transaction within the meaning of section 588FC of the Australian Corporations Law. (n) No transaction contemplated by a Document is an unfair loan within the meaning of section 588FD of the Australian Corporations Law. ALLEN ALLEN & HEMSLEY Page 9 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (o) All amounts payable by PGA under the Credit Agreement or the Australian Borrower Note may be paid without deduction for or on account of any Australian tax. Although, it is not free from doubt, our view is that an amount payable by PGA as Guarantor under the Guaranty which is not interest but which is referable to what would be interest if paid by another Borrower, is not interest or an amount in the nature of interest and, consequently, is not liable to withholding tax. Interest is an amount paid by a borrower to a lender to compensate the lender for being kept out of the use of its money. A payment by a guarantor is a payment to discharge a separate guarantee obligation. The fees payable by PGA under Section 2.09(a), (c) and (f) of the Credit Agreement are not payments of interest or amounts in the nature of interest. (p) Neither PGA nor any of its properties or assets has any immunity from the jurisdiction of any court or from legal process under the laws of any Relevant Jurisdiction. (q) It is not necessary that any Lender Party should be licensed, qualified or otherwise entitled to carry on business under the laws of any Relevant Jurisdiction in order to enforce its rights under any Document or by reason only of the execution, delivery and performance of any Document. A Lender Party will not be a resident of or domiciled in Australia by reason only of the execution, delivery and performance (as contemplated In the Documents) of any Document. (r) The irrevocable submission of PGA to the jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York or Federal courts sitting in New York city, and the appointment of a process agent for service of process in New York are valid and binding under the laws of each Relevant Jurisdiction subject to, when the matter is before an Australian court, an overriding jurisdiction of the courts of each Relevant Jurisdiction to determine that another court is a more appropriate forum. (s) Any final and conclusive judgment of a New York State court or Federal court, sitting in New York city (a NEW YORK COURT) having jurisdiction recognised by the Relevant Jurisdiction, in respect of an obligation of PGA under a Document, which is for a fixed sum of money, would be enforceable by action against the judgment debtor in the courts of each Relevant Jurisdiction (other than the Commonwealth of Australia) without a re- examination of the merits of the issues determined by the proceedings in the New York Court unless; (i) the proceedings in the New York Court involved a denial of the principles of natural justice; (ii) the judgment is contrary to the public policy of the Relevant Jurisdiction; (iii) the judgment was obtained by fraud or duress; (iv) the judgment is a penal or revenue judgment; or (v) there has been a prior judgment in another court between the same parties concerning the same issues as are dealt with in the judgment of the New York Court. ALLEN ALLEN & HEMSLEY Page 10 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This opinion is addressed to you for your sole benefit and for the benefit of any Eligible Assignee of your interest in the Credit Agreement as permitted by Section 8.07 of the Credit Agreement. It is not to he relied upon by any other person or for any other purpose nor is it to be quoted or referred to in any public document or filed with any Governmental Agency or other person without our consent. We consent to reliance on this opinion by Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, counsel to the Loan Parties and Shearman & Sterling, counsel to the US Administrative Agent for the purpose of rendering their opinions in accordance with Section 3.01 of the Credit Agreement. We accept no responsibility or obligation to update this opinion, to consider its applicability or correctness to persons other than its addressee, or to take into account changes in law, facts or any other development of which we may later become aware. Yours faithfully /s/ ALLEN ALLEN & HEMSLEY [LAWSON LUNDELL LAWSON & McINTOSH - LETTERHEAD] April 19, 1996 To each of the Lender Parties as defined in and who is a signatory to the Credit Agreement referred to below c/o Citibank, N.A., as US Administrative Agent 399 Park Avenue New York, New York U.S.A. 10043 Ladies and Gentlemen: PEGASUS GOLD INC. This opinion is furnished to you pursuant to Section 3.01(f)(xi)(C) of the Multicurrency Reducing Revolving Credit Agreement, dated as of April 17, 1996 (the "Credit Agreement"), among Pegasus Gold Inc., a corporation formed under the laws of British Columbia, Canada ("Pegasus Canada"), Pegasus Gold Corporation, a Nevada corporation ("Pegasus Nevada") and Pegasus Gold Pty. Ltd. (formerly known as Zapopan N.L.) (ACN 009 628 924), an Australia corporation ("Pegasus Australia" and, together with Pegasus Canada and Pegasus Nevada, collectively, the "Subject Loan Parties" and, individually, a "Subject Loan Party"), as Borrowers, the financial institutions party thereto as Initial Lenders and Initial Issuing Banks, ABN AMRO Australia Limited as the Non-Pro Rata Lender, ABN AMRO Bank N.V., Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, The First National Bank of Chicago and Dresdner Bank, A.G., New York Branch as Co-Agents, and Citibank, N.A., Citibank Canada and Citibank Limited as Administrative Agents. Terms defined in the Credit Agreement and not otherwise defined herein are used herein as therein defined. We have acted as Canadian counsel for Pegasus Canada in connection with the preparation, execution and delivery of, and the Initial Extension of Credit under, the Credit Agreement. In that connection, we have examined the following (the documents referred to in items 1, 2, 3 and 4 below being, for purposes of this opinion, the "Loan Documents"): 1. The Credit Agreement executed by the Subject Loan Parties. 2. The Canadian Borrower Notes executed by Pegasus Canada. Page 2 3. The Guaranty executed by the Subject Loan Parties and certain Restricted Subsidiaries. 4. The Pledge Agreement executed by the subject Loan Parties and certain Restricted Subsidiaries. 5. The document furnished by Pegasus Canada pursuant to Section 3.01 of the Credit Agreement and listed on Exhibit A hereto. 6. The memorandum and articles of Pegasus Canada and all amendments thereto (collectively, the "Articles"). 7. Such other documents and such laws, rules, regulations and the like (including treaties) as we have deemed necessary as a basis for the opinions hereinafter expressed. We have relied exclusively upon the certificate attached hereto with respect to the accuracy of the factual matters contained therein; while we have not performed any independent check or verification of such matters, other than as set out in this opinion, nothing has come to our attention during our participation with respect to the Loan Documents which leads us to believe such certificate is incorrect. For the purposes of the opinion in paragraph 4(e) hereof, we have assumed that each of the other parties to the Loan Documents exists, has the corporate capacity and power to execute and deliver the Loan Documents to which it is a party and has duly and validly authorized, executed and delivered each of the Loan Documents to which it is a party as its legal, valid and binding obligation, except as the enforceability thereof may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting creditors' rights generally or is subject to the effect of general principles of equity (including without limitation the discretionary nature of the remedies of specific performance and injunction). Based upon the foregoing and upon such investigation as we have deemed necessary, we are of the following opinion: 1. Pegasus Canada (i) is a corporation duly incorporated and validly existing under the COMPANY ACT (British Columbia); and (ii) has the corporate power to own or lease and operate its property and assets and to carry on its business as it is now conducted. 2. The execution, delivery and performance by Pegasus Canada of each Loan Document, and the consummation by Pegasus Canada of the transactions contemplated by the Credit Agreement, are within Pegasus Canada's corporate powers, have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action and do not contravene the Articles or any law, rule of regulation applicable to Pegasus Canada. Each Loan Document has been duly executed and delivered by Pegasus Canada. 3. No authorization or approval or other action by, and no notice to or filing with, any governmental, regulatory or administrative authority or other law or rule-making entity of the federal government of Canada or of the Province of British Columbia ("Governmental Authority") or any other third party is required for (i) the due execution, delivery, recordation, filing or performance by Pegasus Canada of any Loan Document, or for the Page 3 consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Credit Agreement, (ii) the grant by Pegasus Canada of the Lien granted by it pursuant to the Pledge Agreement, (iii) the perfection or maintenance of the perfection or priority of the Lien created by the Pledge Agreement or (iv) the exercise by the US Administrative Agent or any other Lender Party of it rights against Pegasus Canada under the Loan Documents or the remedies in respect of the right, title and interest of Pegasus Canada in and to the Pledged Shares (as defined in the Pledge Agreement) pursuant to the Pledge Agreement, except for the authorizations, approvals, actions, notices and filings listed on Exhibit B hereto, all of which have been duly obtained, taken, given or made and are in full force and effect and except for such actions indicated on the attached schedule to be taken after the Closing Date. There are no waiting periods now applicable in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Credit Agreement which would permit any competent authority to restrain, prevent or impose materially adverse conditions upon the rights of Pegasus Canada freely to transfer or to otherwise dispose of, or to create any Lien on, any properties now owned or hereafter acquire by it. 4. (a) The choice of New York law as the governing law of the Loan Documents will be upheld as a valid choice of law by the courts of the Province of British Columbia provided that such choice of law is BONA FIDE (in the sense that it was not made with a view to avoiding the consequences of the law of any other jurisdiction) (to the best of our knowledge, such choice of law is BONA FIDE) and provided that such choice of law is not contrary to public policy, as that term is understood under the laws of the Province of British Columbia. (b) A court in the Province of British Columbia would, subject to section 4(a) hereof, apply New York law, to the extent pleaded and proved, in any action or proceeding against any of the Loan Parties arising out of any Loan Documents to the extent that the parties have agreed to its application therein, except that: (i) a British Columbia court will apply only British Columbia procedural laws; (ii) a British Columbia court may not enforce an obligation enforceable under the laws of the State of New York where performance of the obligation would be illegal by the law of the place of performance; (iii) a British Columbia court will not enforce a foreign law that is contrary to public policy or is of a revenue or penal nature; and (iv) a British Columbia court may reserve to itself an inherent power to decline to hear such an action if it is contrary to public policy, as such term is understood under the laws of British Columbia, for it to do so, or if it is not the proper forum to hear such action or if concurrent proceedings are being brought elsewhere. (c) A judgment of a court of the State of New York can be enforced in the Province of British Columbia by suing on the judgment and the courts of the Province of British Columbia would give a judgment in Canadian currency based on any final Page 4 and conclusive judgment validly and properly given by a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of New York without reconsideration of the merits, assuming proper service of the process where: (i) the judgment is not the subject of an appeal; (ii) the judgment was for a definite and ascertained sum of money; (iii) the judgment was not obtained by fraud or in a manner opposed to the principles of natural justice; (iv) the judgment was not obtained in proceedings of a penal or revenue character; and (v) recognition of the judgment is not contrary to public policy as applied by the British Columbia courts. (d) To the best of our knowledge after due inquiry, none of the terms of the Loan Documents (including, without limitation, any choice of law therein) violates an important public policy of British Columbia or is of a revenue or penal nature. (e) Although the Loan Documents contain choice of law provisions which state that they shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, in the event that in any action in a British Columbia court to enforce the obligations of Pegasus Canada under the Loan Documents New York law was not proven and the laws of British Columbia were applied to govern the legality, validity and interpretation of the Loan Documents, each of the Loan Documents would constitute a legal, valid and binding obligation of Pegasus Canada, enforceable against Pegasus Canada in accordance with its terms, except that its enforceability may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting creditors' rights generally and may be subject to the effect of general principles of equity (including without limitation the discretionary nature of the remedies of specific performance and injunction). 5. Each of the Loan Documents is in proper legal form under the laws of British Columbia and the laws of Canada applicable therein for the enforcement thereof against Pegasus Canada under the laws of British Columbia and the laws of Canada applicable therein; and to ensure the legality, validity, enforceability or admissibility in evidence of the Loan Documents in the courts of the federal government of Canada or the provincial government of British Columbia, it is not necessary that any Loan Documents or any other document be filed or recorded with any Governmental Authority or court of the federal government of Canada or the provincial government of British Columbia or that any stamp or similar tax be paid on or in respect of the Loan Documents. 6. If the Pledge Agreement were governed by the law of the Province of British Columbia, it would create a valid security interest in the right, title and interest of Pegasus Canada in and to the Pledged Shares (as defined in the Pledge Agreement) (the "Pegasus Pledged Shares") securing the payment of the Obligations of Pegasus Canada as defined and to the Page 5 extent set forth in the Pledge Agreement. Once the US Administrative Agent takes and provided that it maintains possession of the certificates representing the Pegasus Pledged Shares and is without knowledge that any of the Pegasus Pledged Shares was subject to a security interest in favour of any other Person, the security interest of the US Administrative Agent in the Pegasus Pledged Shares will be perfected and will have priority over any other security interest granted by Pegasus Canada in the Pegasus Pledged Shares perfected by registration or temporarily perfected under the PERSONAL PROPERTY SECURITY ACT (British Columbia) ("PPSA"), other than a purchase money security interest (as defined in PPSA) in respect of which the holder thereof has registered a financing statement in the British Columbia Personal Property Registry. (a) within 15 days of Pegasus Canada or another Person at the request of Pegasus Canada, obtaining possession of the relevant Pegasus Pledged Shares; or (b) where such purchase money security interest was perfected by possession within 15 days of the Pegasus Canada or another Person at the request of Pegasus Canada obtained possession of the relevant Pegasus Pledged Shares and the holder of the purchase money security interest has delivered the relevant Pegasus Pledged Shares to Pegasus Canada for the purposes of ultimate sale or exchange, presentation, collection or renewal, or registration of transfer, within 15 days of the date of such delivery; or (c) where any of the Pegasus Pledged Shares are proceeds of personal property subject to the purchase money security interest, within 15 days of the date such Pegasus Pledged Shares become proceeds as aforesaid. A search conducted by us in the British Columbia Personal Property Registry on April 19, 1996, having a currency date of April 16, 1996, revealed no registrations against Pegasus Canada, other than that described in Exhibit B hereto. 7. Except as described in the following sentence, there is no tax, levy, impost, deduction, charge or withholding imposed by Canada or British Columbia or any taxing authority thereof or therein either (i) on or by virtue of the execution or delivery by Pegasus Canada of any Loan Document or (ii) with respect to Lender Parties that are not incorporated and existing under the laws of, or whose Applicable Lending Office is not located in, Canada or any political subdivision thereof, (x) on or by virtue of any payment to be made by Pegasus Canada pursuant to any Loan Document or (y) on such Lender Parties with respect to receipt of such a payment. Amounts paid or credited by or on behalf of Pegasus Canada to a Lender who is a non-resident of Canada within the meaning of the INCOME TAX ACT (Canada) as, on account or in lieu of payment of, or in satisfaction of interest (as that term is used in the INCOME TAX ACT (Canada)), including without limitation (i) interest payable under the terms of the Credit Agreement, (ii) the amount by which the Face Amount of any BA Obligation exceeds the Drawing Purchase Price of such BA Obligation, (iii) the Letter of Credit fees payable by Pegasus Canada pursuant to section 2.09(c) of the Credit Agreement, (iv) the commitment fee payable pursuant to section 2.09(a) of the Credit Agreement, (v) the Drawing Fees payable by Pegasus Canada pursuant to section 2.09(g) of the Credit Agreement and (vi) all amounts payable by Page 6 Pegasus Canada pursuant to the Guaranty in respect of obligations which would constitute interest (as that term is used in the INCOME TAX ACT (Canada) will generally be subject to withholding tax under Part XIII of the INCOME TAX ACT (Canada) at the rate of 25% of the amount of the payment. The rate of withholding tax may be reduced by an applicable income tax treaty between Canada and the country of residence of the Lender for Lenders resident in the United States of America or Australia the; applicable rates are 10% and 15% respectively. 8. Provided that such execution, delivery, performance or enforcement is not effected through an office or permanent establishment in Canada, none of the Administrative Agents, Co-Agents, Lenders or Initial Issuing Banks which is a signatory to any of the existing Loan Documents and which is not otherwise resident, domiciled, carrying on business or subject to taxation in Canada, will be resident, domiciled, carrying on business or subject to taxation in Canada by reason only of the execution, delivery, performance or enforcement of the Loan Documents. 9. The execution and delivery of the Loan Documents, the making of the Accommodations to Pegasus Canada, the performance of their obligations to Pegasus Canada under the Loan Documents and the enforcement of their rights against Pegasus Canada under the Loan Documents by any Lender Parties which are not residents of Canada do not contravene section 508 of the BANK ACT (Canada), provided that such actions are not effected through an office or permanent establishment in Canada. 10. It is not necessary under the laws of British Columbia or the federal laws of Canada (i) in order to enable the Administrative Agents, the Initial Lenders and the Initial Issuing Banks, or any of them, to enforce their respective rights against Pegasus Canada under any Loan Document or (ii) by reason only of the execution, delivery or performance of the Loan Documents, that any of them be licensed, qualified or entitled to carry on business in British Columbia or in Canada provided that it will be necessary for any such Person, if a corporation, other than a Canadian chartered bank or a federally-incorporated corporation, to register as an extra-provincial corporation under the COMPANY ACT (British Columbia) in order to maintain an action in the courts of British Columbia if, at the time of commencement or during the continuance of such action, such Person is carrying on business (as such term is defined in the COMPANY ACT (British Columbia)) in the Province of British Columbia. The opinions expressed above are subject to the following qualifications: 1. We are qualified to express opinions solely with respect to, and our opinions are restricted to, the laws of the Province of British Columbia and the applicable laws of Canada therein. In particular, without limiting the generality of the immediately preceding sentence, no opinion is expressed in this letter with respect to the laws of any other jurisdiction to the extent that such laws may govern the validity, perfection, effect of perfection or non-perfection or enforcement of any security interest created by the Loan Documents as a result of the application of British Columbia conflict of law rules, including, without limitation, sections 5 to 8 of the PPSA. Page 7 2. We have not reviewed, and we express no opinion about, the laws of any other jurisdiction even though the Loan Documents refer to such other laws or incorporate them by reference. 3. We express no opinion as to the legal or beneficial title of Pegasus Canada in and to any of the Pledged Shares or, save as expressly provided in paragraph 6 above, the priority of any Lien created therein by the Pledge Agreement. The opinions expressed in paragraphs 4 and 6 above are subject to the following further qualifications: 1. The CURRENCY ACT (Canada) precludes a court in Canada from giving a judgement in a currency other than Canadian Dollars. 2. If the Lender Parties were to demand payment of the indebtedness of Pegasus Canada under the Loan Documents, the Lender Parties may be required to give Pegasus Canada a reasonable time to raise funds to pay that indebtedness prior to taking any action to enforce their right to payment or exercising any of the rights and remedies expressed to be exercisable by the Lender Parties. 3. We express no opinion as to the enforceability of any provision of the Loan Documents which requires Pegasus Canada to pay the costs and expenses of the Lender Parties on the basis that any such provision may only be enforced in the discretion of a court. 4. We express no opinion as to the enforceability of any general waivers of defences by Pegasus Canada included in the loan Documents. 5. We express no opinion as to the enforceability of any provision of the Loan Documents which states that amendments or waivers of or with respect to such Loan Documents that are not in writing will not be effective. 6. The post-judgement rate of interest applicable to the liabilities of Pegasus Canada under the Loan Documents lies within the discretion of the court. 7. Enforceability of any Lien created by any of the Loan Documents may be subject to: (a) the power of a court under the PPSA to grant relief from the consequences of default; (b) the detailed provisions of PPSA which set out procedures for the enforcement of security agreements and impose duties with respect to the exercise of rights or remedies thereunder, including a duty to exercise or discharge rights, remedies, duties and obligations in good faith and in a commercially reasonable manner; (c) any estoppel based on incorrect information given in response to a demand for information made pursuant to Section 18 of the PPSA; and Page 8 (d) in the event that the US Administrative Agent gives up possession of any of the Pledged Shares, to Section 31 of the PPSA (a copy of which is attached) which provides that, in certain circumstances, a security interest may not be enforceable against a person who acquires and takes possession of securities from a debtor. We are aware that Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, counsel to the Loan Parties, and Shearman & Sterling, counsel to the Co-Agents and the US Administrative Agent, may rely upon this opinion in rendering their opinions furnished pursuant to section 3.01 of the Credit Agreement. At your request, we hereby consent to reliance hereon by any future participants or Eligible Assignees of your interest in the Credit Agreement as permitted by section 8.07 of the Credit Agreement, PROVIDED, that such participant or Eligible Assignee is hereby notified that this opinion speaks only as of the date hereof and to its addressees and that we have no responsibility or obligation to update this opinion, to consider its applicability or correctness to other than its addressees, or to take into account changes in law, facts or any other development of which we may later become aware.

Any security interest created by Pegasus Canada under the Pledge Agreement and not otherwise perfected by possession will cease to be perfected on the expiry date of the aforesaid financing statement (April 19, 2006), unless a financing change statement is registered prior to such expiry date, extending the expiry date. Registering a financing change statement as contemplated by PPSA is necessary to establish or preserve priority of a security interest in the following circumstances: (a) within 15 days after a secured party obtains knowledge of a change of name of a debtor; (b) within 15 days after a debtor transfers all or part of its interest in any of the collateral with the consent of a secured party and, in any event, within 15 days after a secured party obtains knowledge that all or part of a debtor's interest in any collateral has been transferred (which may include transfer by operation of law); and (c) if any collateral which is serial numbered goods (as defined in PPSA) but not described by serial number in the aforesaid financing statement is not or ceases to be inventory. Registering financing change statements as contemplated by PPSA may be desirable if a secured party transfers all or part of a security interest to another person or if a secured party changes its name or address. CERTIFICATE I, ROBERT A. LONERGAN, hereby certify as follows: 1. I am the Vice President of Pegasus Gold Inc., (the "Company") and as such have personal knowledge of the matters herein certified. 2. This Certificate is delivered to Messrs. Lawson Lundell Lawson & McIntosh to be relied upon by them for the purposes of their opinion to be provided in connection with a Multicurrency Reducing Revolving Credit Agreement dated as of April 17, 1996 among the Company, Pegasus Gold Corporation, Pegasus Gold Pty. Ltd., certain financial institutions party thereto as Initial Lenders and Initial Issuing Banks, ABN AMRO Australia Limited, ABN AMRO Bank N.V., Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Dresdner Bank, A.G., The First National Bank of Chicago, Citibank, N.A., Citibank Canada and Citibank Limited ("Credit Agreement"). Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined shall have the meanings given to such terms in the Credit Agreement. 3. The Company carries on no business other than the natural resource extractive business and owns no properties or assets other than those used in connection with the aforesaid business. 4. At the time of its execution of the Credit Agreement, the Canadian Borrower Note, the Guaranty and the Pledge Agreement: (a) the fair value of the property of the Company was greater than the total amount of liabilities, including without limitation, contingent liabilities, of the Company; (b) the present fair saleable value of the assets of the Company was not less than the amount that would be required to pay the probable liability of the Company on its debts as they became absolute and mature; (c) the Company did not intend to and did not believe that it would, incur debts or liabilities beyond its ability to pay such debts and liabilities as they mature; (d) the Company was not engaged in business or a transaction, and was not about to engage in a business or transaction, for which the Company's property would constitute an unreasonably small capital; and (e) the Company was able to pay its debts as they became due in the usual course of its business. For the purpose of the foregoing the amount of contingent liabilities at any time has been computed as the amount that, in light of the facts and circumstances existing at such time, represents the amount that could be reasonably expected to become an actual or matured liability.

Ladies and Gentlemen: We have acted as special Nevada counsel for Pegasus Gold Corporation, a Nevada corporation ("PGC"), in connection with the transactions contemplated by that certain Multicurrency Reducing Revolving Credit Agreement (the "Agreement") dated as of April 17, 1996, among Pegasus Gold Inc., a British Columbia, Canada corporation ("PGI"), PGC, Pegasus Gold Australia Pty. Ltd., an Australian corporation ("PGA"), the banks, financial entities and other institutional lenders identified in the Agreement as the Initial Lenders (the "Initial Lenders"), the Initial Issuing Banks, as defined in the Agreement, Citibank, N.A., Citibank Canada and Citibank Limited (ACN 004 325 0080), an Australian corporation and, together with Citibank and Citibank Canada, each an "Administrative Agent" and, collectively, the "Administrative Agents", ABN AMRO Australia Limited, ABN AMRO Bank N.V., Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Dresdner Bank, A.G., and the First National Bank of Chicago as Co-Agents. All capitalized terms used in this opinion without definition have the meanings specified in the Agreement. In rendering our opinion, we have examined originals or copies of the following documents: 1. The Agreement. 2. The Guaranty. 3. The Pledge Agreement. 4. The US Borrower Notes. April 18, 1996 Page 2 5. The Officer's Certificate of Robert A. Lonergan, as Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of PGC. 6. The Resolutions of the Directors of PGC. 7. The Certificate of Corporate Existence of the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada dated April 2, 1996, certifying the corporate existence of PGC in the State of Nevada. 8. The documents listed paragraphs in 1-4 above are sometimes collectively referred to as the "Loan Documents". In addition, to the extent our opinions involve factual matters, we have examined and, with your knowledge and consent, we have relied upon the Officer's Certificate as to factual matters described in the Officer's Certificate and the Certificate of Corporate Existence for PGC issued by the Nevada Secretary of State on April 2, 1996. We have examined such other documents and considered such questions of law as we have deemed necessary or desirable for the expression of our opinions. In such examination, we have assumed the authenticity of all documents submitted to us as originals, the conformity to the original documents of all documents submitted to us as copies, the authenticity of the originals of the latter documents and the genuineness and authorization of all signatures other than those of and on behalf of PGC. We have reviewed and our opinions are limited to the laws and regulations of: (a) the State of Nevada; and (b) the United States. Except as expressly stated in this opinion, we have not been called upon to review, nor have we reviewed, or to render any opinion regarding the laws of any other jurisdiction or any federal securities laws or tax laws (including laws governing sales and use taxes) or regulations in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents, and, except as specifically stated in this opinion, we express no opinion whatsoever as to the effect such laws or regulations may have upon the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents. Our opinions are also subject to the following general qualifications: A. This opinion is rendered as of the above date. We do not undertake to advise you or any assignee or successor of an Initial Lender of matters which may come to our attention after the above date and which may affect the opinions we have expressed. B. In rendering our opinions concerning the enforceability of the Loan Documents, we have assumed, with your knowledge and consent, that all matters of enforceability will be governed by the laws of the State of New York and that the Agreement is enforceable in accordance with its terms under New York law, subject to and as may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights in general and general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law). April 18, 1996 Page 3 C. Except as expressly stated in this opinion, we render no opinion regarding the veracity of any representations or warranties contained in the Loan Documents or in the Officer's Certificate. Based upon and subject to the foregoing, we are of the opinion that: 1. PGC is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Nevada and is qualified to transact business in Nevada under the laws of the State of Nevada. PGC has all requisite corporate power, authority and legal right to own or lease and operate its properties and to carry on its business as now conducted and to enter into and perform the Loan Documents. 2. PGC's execution, delivery and performance of the Loan Documents have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action of PGC, and the Loan Documents to which PGC is a signatory have been duly executed and delivered by PGC. 3. PGC's execution and delivery of the Loan Documents, and PGC's performance of its obligations under the Loan Documents, do not: (a) violate any Nevada law, regulation or rule applicable to PGC; (b) conflict with, result in a breach of, or constitute a default under, any of the terms, conditions or provisions of PGC's articles of incorporation or bylaws; or (c) require any approvals, authorizations, consents, declarations, filings or registrations by PGC under any Nevada law, regulation or rule applicable to PGC, except those which PGC has obtained or which PGC will apply for and obtain in the ordinary course of the conduct of its business operations in Nevada. 4. PGC's authorized capital stock consists of 1,505,000 shares of common stock, of which 248,266 shares have been duly authorized and validly issued and are fully paid and nonassessable. Based solely on our review of PGC's stock records, all of the issued and outstanding shares of PGC are owned of record by PGI. To the best of our knowledge, after due inquiry, there are no rights of conversion, options or warrants, or other agreements, arrangements, commitments or rights, relating to the capital stock of PGC which obligate PGC to issue or sell any of its shares of capital stock. This opinion is intended solely for the benefit of the Administrative Agents, the Collateral Agents, the Initial Lenders, the Initial Issuing Bank and the Co-Agents in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents, and is not to be relied upon by any other person or for any other purpose or quoted in whole or in part or otherwise referred to in any document filed or to be filed with any governmental or other administrative agency or other person for any purpose without the prior written consent of this firm. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, a copy of this opinion letter may be delivered by any of the Lender Parties to any assignee in connection with any assignment of all or a portion of the rights and obligations of such Lender Party under the Agreement in accordance with the provisions of the Agreement, and such assignee may rely on the opinions expressed above as if this opinion letter were addressed and delivered to the assignee on this date. This letter speaks only as of this date. Assignees are informed that in accordance with customary practice relating to opinion letters, we do not assume, and we explicitly disclaim, any responsibility to advise any person who is permitted to rely on any opinion expressed in this letter as specified in this paragraph April 18, 1996 Page 4 of any change of law or fact that may occur after the date of this opinion letter even though such change may affect the legal analysis, a legal conclusion or any other matter set forth in or relating to this opinion letter. Accordingly, any person relying on this opinion letter at any time should seek advice of its counsel as to the proper application of this opinion letter at such time.

[ADDITIONAL PLEDGOR] By: ------------------------------- Title: Notice Address: ----------------------------------- ----------------------------------- Attention: ------------------------ CITIBANK, N.A., as Collateral Agent By: ------------------------------- Title: EXHIBIT N PERMITTED HEDGE AGREEMENT TERMINATION PROVISIONS Reference is made to the form ISDA Master Agreement (Multicurrency -- Cross Border) attached hereto for purposes of Section references and defined terms referred to in this Exhibit N. TERMINATION PROVISIONS: Party A: Hedge Agreement Counterparty Party B: Applicable Loan Party "Credit Agreement" means the Credit Agreement to which this Exhibit is attached In this Agreement: (1) "Specified Entity" [may include Affiliates of Party A or Party B]. (2) "Specified Transaction" will have the meaning specified in Section 14. (3) The "Cross-Default" provisions of Section 5(a)(vi) will apply to Party A and Party B. "Specified Indebtedness" means any obligation (whether present or future, contingent or otherwise, as principal or surety or otherwise) in respect of borrowed money, other than indebtedness in respect of deposits received. "Threshold Amount" means (i) with respect to Party A, 2% of the stockholders' equity of Party A and (ii) with respect to Party B, 2% of the stockholders' equity of the Credit Support Provider with the greatest stockholders' equity.

(4) The "Credit Event Upon Merger" provisions of Section 5(b)(iv) will apply to Party A and Party B. (5) The "Automatic Early Termination" provision of Section 6(a) will not apply to Party A or Party B; provided, however, where the Event of Default specified in Section 5(a)(vii)(1), (3), (4), (5), (6) or to the extent analogous thereto, (8), is governed by a system of law which does not permit termination to take place after the occurrence of the relevant Event of Default, then the Automatic Early Termination provision of Section 6(a) will apply to Party A and Party B.

(vii) Equal and Ratable Security. After the termination of the Credit Agreement, any indebtedness under any Borrower's principal bank credit facility or similar financing arrangement is guaranteed or secured and the obligations of Party B under (or of any Credit Support Provider in respect of) this Agreement are not equally and ratably guaranteed and secured. [This provision to be included in Hedge Agreements with Lenders and Lender Affiliate counterparties only and shall terminate as to any Hedge Agreement if, at any time prior to the payment in full of all Obligations thereunder and the termination of the Commitments, neither Party A to such Hedge Agreement nor any of its Affiliates is a Lender Party under the Credit Agreement.] (b) An Impossibility shall be treated as an Illegality for all purposes of the Agreement. (9) Netting Provisions. If any Early Termination Date is designated, amounts determined in respect of all Terminated Transactions shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, be aggregated with and netted against one another in performing the calculations contemplated by Section 6(e). Any Terminated Transaction(s) that cannot be so aggregated and netted shall instead be (and is hereby agreed always to have been) governed by, and subject to, the terms and conditions set out in the relevant Confirmation(s) with respect to such Transaction(s).
