                                  THE   SECURITIES   REPRESENTED BY THIS
                                  CERTIFICATE ARE RESTRICTED SECURITIES AS
                                  THAT TERM IS DEFINED IN RULE 144 UNDER
                                  THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED
                                  (THE   "ACT"),   AND   HAVE   NOT   BEEN
                                  REGISTERED    UNDER   THE   ACT.   THESE




                           SECURITIES MAY NOT BE OFFERED FOR SALE,
                          SOLD OR TRANSFERRED EXCEPT PURSUANT TO
                            AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT
                               UNDER THE ACT OR PURSUANT TO AN
                          EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER THE
                            ACT, THE AVAILABILITY OF WHICH IS TO BE
                           ESTABLISHED TO THE SATISFACTION OF THE
                            ISSUER. THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY
                          THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR
                          INVESTMENT AND NOT WITH A VIEW TO, OR IN
                                 CONNECTION WITH, THE SALE OR
                            DISTRIBUTION THEREOF. THE ISSUER MAY
                          REQUIRE AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SKILLED IN
                         SECURITIES MATTERS AND OTHER EVIDENCE OF
                              COMPLIANCE WITH THE ACT PRIOR TO
                                PERMITTING A TRANSFER OF THESE
                                          SECURITIES.

The Investor understands that the imposition of such a legend condition may affect the value, and the value as
collateral, of the Shares;

(e) the Investor agrees that the Issuer may require that none of the Shares or any interest therein may be sold,
transferred or otherwise disposed of unless registered under the Securities Act, without his or her having first
presented to the Issuer or its counsel a written opinion of counsel experienced in securities law matters indicating
that the proposed disposition will not be in violation of any of the registration provisions of the Securities Act and
the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder; and

(f) the Company agrees that within Fourteen (14) days of closing this offering the Company will file a one time
registration statement at its own expense seeking registration of the shares sold pursuant to the offering, as well as
any other shares held by holders who may have "piggyback" registration rights, and who timely notify the
Company that they desire to exercise such rights. The Company makes no

                                                         -3-
representation that such registration statement will be declared effective by the Securities and Exchange
Commission within any specific timeframe, or if ever. Further, the Company will contemporaneously make the
required filings and comply with any applicable "Blue Sky" provisions of the applicable states where necessary,
but makes no representation of its ability to clear such securities in any state within any specific timeframe, if ever.

(g) the Investor acknowledges that the foregoing is not a complete statement of the law applicable to resale or
registration of the Shares, but merely an outline of some of the more salient features. For legal advice in these
matters, the Investor will continue to rely on its own legal counsel as the Investor has throughout this transaction
concerning the purchase of the Shares.

5. INDEMNIFICATION

5.1 The Investor hereby indemnifies and holds harmless the Issuer and its officers, directors, shareholders,
agents, employees, attorneys, successors, and assigns from and against all damages, losses, costs, liabilities, and
expenses (including, costs of investigation, defense, and attorneys' fees) incurred by reason of the failure of the
Investor to fulfill any of the Investor's obligations hereunder or by reason of any breach or inaccuracy of any of

(e) the Investor agrees that the Issuer may require that none of the Shares or any interest therein may be sold,
transferred or otherwise disposed of unless registered under the Securities Act, without his or her having first
presented to the Issuer or its counsel a written opinion of counsel experienced in securities law matters indicating
that the proposed disposition will not be in violation of any of the registration provisions of the Securities Act and
the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder; and

(f) the Company agrees that within Fourteen (14) days of closing this offering the Company will file a one time
registration statement at its own expense seeking registration of the shares sold pursuant to the offering, as well as
any other shares held by holders who may have "piggyback" registration rights, and who timely notify the
Company that they desire to exercise such rights. The Company makes no representation that such registration

                                                         -3-
statement will be declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission within any specific timeframe, or
if ever. Further, the Company will contemporaneously make the required filings and comply with any applicable
"Blue Sky" provisions of the applicable states where necessary, but makes no representation of its ability to clear
such securities in any state within any specific timeframe, if ever.

(g) the Investor acknowledges that the foregoing is not a complete statement of the law applicable to resale or
registration of the Shares, but merely an outline of some of the more salient features. For legal advice in these
matters, the Investor will continue to rely on its own legal counsel as the Investor has throughout this transaction
concerning the purchase of the Shares.

                                             PROMISSORY NOTE

$65,000 August 29, 2003 New York, New York

WHEREAS, CGT Management Ltd., a company organized and existing under the laws of Bermuda (the
"Payee"), desires to invest a portion of its passive assets in a fixed income instrument; and

WHEREAS, Trend Mining Company ("Payor"), a Delaware corporation with its principal business address at
4881 East Shoreline Drive, Post Falls, Idaho 83854, desires to borrow and Payee desires to lend, the principal
amount of $65,000, which loan shall be evidenced by this Promissory Note;

NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby
acknowledged, the Payor and the Payee agree as follows:

FOR VALUE RECEIVED, Payor hereby unconditionally promises to pay Payee, in immediately available funds,
the principal amount of Sixty-Five Thousand United States Dollars ($65,000), plus any accrued and unpaid
interest thereon, on November 27, 2003 (the "Maturity Date"). The Payor further promises to pay interest on the
unpaid outstanding principal amount of this Promissory Note at the rate of 10% per annum. In no event shall the
interest payable hereunder exceed the maximum amount permitted under applicable law.

If any payment under this Promissory Note becomes due and payable on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, or
on any other day on which banking institutions in the State of New York are closed, the due date of such
payment shall be extended to the next business day.

1. Optional Prepayments. The Payor shall have the right to prepay the outstanding amount of principal and
interest hereunder, in whole or in part, at any time or from time to time, without penalty or premium, and any such
prepayments shall be applied to interest first and then to principal.

2. Events of Default; Acceleration.

(a) The following events shall constitute "Events of Default" hereunder:

(i) A breach by the Payor of any of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements made in this
Promissory Note; or

(ii) If proceedings under any bankruptcy or insolvency law are commenced by the Payor, or if proceedings under
any bankruptcy or insolvency law are commenced against the Payor and such proceedings are not dismissed
within 30 days of commencement thereof, or if a general assignment for the benefit of creditors of the Payor is
made or if a trustee or receiver of the Payor's property is appointed.
(b) Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, then, or at any time thereafter, and in each and every such case,
unless such Event of Default shall have been waived in writing by the Payee (which waiver shall not be deemed to
be a waiver of any subsequent default) at the option of the Payee and in the Payee's sole discretion, the Payee
may, upon written notice to the Payor, declare the unpaid principal amount of this Promissory Note, accrued
interest thereon and all other amounts payable under this Promissory Note immediately due and payable, without
presentment, demand, protest or notice of any kind, all of which are hereby expressly waived, anything herein or
in any note or other instruments contained to the contrary notwithstanding, and the Payee may immediately, and
without expiration of any further period of grace, enforce any and all of the Payee's rights and remedies provided
herein or any other rights or remedies afforded by law; provided, however, that in the case of an Event of Default
described in Section 2(a)(ii) above, then the unpaid principal amount of this Promissory Note, any accrued
interest thereon and other amounts payable under this Promissory Note shall be immediately due and payable
without any notice or other action by the Payee.

3. Representations. The Payor represents and warrants to the Payee that the Payor has full power, authority and
legal right to make this Promissory Note and that this Promissory Note has been duly authorized, executed and
delivered by the Payor and constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Payor, enforceable against the
Payor in accordance with its terms, subject, as to enforcement, to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or other
similar laws affecting creditors' rights and remedies generally or by the application of general principals of equity.

4. Expenses. The Payor agrees to pay to the Payee on demand all costs, expenses, and charges, including
reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses, incurred by the Payee in connection with the enforcement and collection
of this Promissory Note and the prosecution of any rights of the Payee pursuant to this Promissory Note. The
provisions of this Section 4 shall survive the payment of monies due hereunder.

5. Governing Law and Jurisdiction. This Promissory Note and the rights and obligations of the Payor and the
Payee shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York without giving
effect to the conflicts of law principles thereof. For purposes of any proceeding involving this Promissory Note or
any of the obligations of the Payor, the Payor hereby submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of any federal or
state court sitting in the Southern District of New York, and the Payor hereby waives, to the fullest extent
permitted by law, any objection to or defense based upon the venue of any such court or based upon forum non
conveniens.

6. Notice. Notice or demand under this Promissory Note shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been
duly made and received (i) when personally served (ii) five days after the date sent by certified mail, postage
prepaid, return receipt requested, or (iii) when delivered by Federal Express or a similar overnight courier
service, expenses prepaid, addressed to the Payor.

7. Miscellaneous.

(a) This Promissory Note may be modified or canceled only by the written agreement of the Payor and the
Payee. No failure or delay on the part of the Payee in exercising any of its rights nor any partial or single exercise
of its rights shall constitute a waiver thereof or of any other right, and no waiver on the part of the Payee of any of
its rights shall constitute a waiver of any other right. No waiver by the Payee of any of its rights hereunder shall be
effective unless the same shall be in writing signed by the Payee. The remedies herein provided are cumulative
and not exclusive of any remedies provided by law.

(b) The provisions of this Promissory Note are intended to be severable. If for any reason any provisions of this
Promissory Note shall be held invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part in any jurisdiction, such provision shall,
as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability without in any manner
affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other jurisdiction or the remaining provisions thereof in any
jurisdiction.

(c) This Promissory Note shall be binding on the Payor and its successors and assigns and shall inure to the
benefit of the Payee and its successors and assignors, except that the Payor may not delegate any of its
obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the Payee.

(d) The headings appearing in this Promissory Note are inserted only as a matter of convenience and for
reference and in no way define, limit or describe the scope and intent of this Promissory Note or any of the
provisions hereof.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Payor has caused this Promissory Note to be executed by its duly authorized
officer as of the date first written above.
