FOR VALUE RECEIVED, Touchstone Mining Limited, a Nevada corporation (the "Company"), hereby promises to pay to MILESTONE ENHANCED FUND LTD. or registered assigns ("Holder") the amount set out above as the Original Principal Amount (as reduced pursuant to the terms hereof pursuant to redemption, conversion or otherwise, the "Principal") when due, whether upon the Maturity Date (as defined below), acceleration, redemption or otherwise (in each case in accordance with the terms hereof) and to pay interest at the rate of 8.25% per annum  ("Interest") from the date set out above as the Issuance Date (the "Issuance Date") until the same becomes due and payable on the Maturity Date.
 
1.  PAYMENTS OF PRINCIPAL; MATURITY.  Payment of Principal and Interest due on this Note is payable no later than November 8, 2010 (the “Maturity Date); provided, however, that each of the parties hereto may mutually agree to extend the term of this Note beyond the Maturity Date.
 
2.  PREPAYMENT.  The Company and the Holder understand and agree that the principal amount of the Note and any interest accrued thereon be prepaid by the Company at any time without penalty.
 
3.  CONVERSION OF NOTE.  This Note shall be convertible into shares of the Companys common stock (the "Shares"), on the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 3.
 
(a)  Conversion Right.  Subject to the provisions of Section 3(c)(i) hereof and pursuant to terms to be mutually agreed upon by the Company and the Holder in writing at a later date, the Holder shall be entitled to convert any portion of the outstanding and unpaid principal and interest balance due on the Note in accordance with Section 3 of this Note into Shares at a conversion price to be mutually determined by the Company and the Holder (the “Conversion Price).   The Company shall not issue any fractions of a Share upon any conversion.  If the issuance would result in the issuance of a fraction of a Share, the Company shall round such fraction of a Share up to the nearest whole Share.  The Company shall pay any and all taxes that may be payable with respect to the issuance and delivery of Shares upon conversion of any conversion amount.
 

 
(b)  Mechanics of Conversion.
 
(i)  Notice of Conversion. To convert this Note, the Holder hereof shall deliver written notice thereof, substantially in the form of Exhibit A to this Note, with appropriate insertions (the “Conversion Notice”), to the Company at its address as set forth herein.  The date upon which the conversion shall be effective (the “Conversion Date”) shall be deemed to be the date set forth in the Conversion Notice.  Except as otherwise provided herein, the Company shall not have the right to object to the conversion or the calculation of the applicable conversion price, absent manifest error.  Any conversion of any portion of the Note to Shares shall be deemed to be a pre-payment of principal, without any penalty, and shall be credited against any future payments of principal in the order that such payments become due and payable
 
(ii)  Disputes.  In the event of a dispute as to the number of Shares issuable to the Holder in connection with a conversion of this Note, the Company shall issue to the Holder the number of Shares not in dispute and resolve such dispute using good faith efforts with the Holder.
 
(c)  Limitations on Conversions
 
Beneficial Ownership.  The Holder of this Note (including any successor, transferee or assignee) shall not have the right or obligation to convert any portion of this Note pursuant to Section 3(b)(i) hereof to the extent that, after giving effect to such conversion, the Holder (together with the Holder's Affiliates) would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% (as may be adjusted in the manner described below, the "Maximum Percentage") of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion.  For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder and its Affiliates shall include the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of this Note with respect to which the determination of such sentence is being made, but shall exclude the number of shares of Common Stock which would be issuable upon (A) conversion of the remaining, nonconverted portion of this Note beneficially owned by the Holder or any of its Affiliates and (B) exercise or conversion of the unexercised or nonconverted portion of any other securities of the Company (including, without limitation, any Other Notes or Warrants) subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitation contained herein beneficially owned by the Holder or any of its Affiliates.  Except as set forth in the preceding sentence, for purposes of this Section 3(c), beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  For purposes of this Section 3(c), in determining the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock, the Holder may rely on the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock as reflected in the most recently filed document among: (x) the Company's most recent public filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission containing such information, (y) a more recent public announcement by the Company or (z) any other notice by the Company or the Transfer Agent setting forth the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding.  For any reason at any time, during regular business hours of the Company and upon the written request of the Holder, the Company shall within two (2) Business Days confirm in writing to the Holder the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding.  In any case, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be determined after giving effect to the conversion or exercise of securities of the Company, including this Note, by the Holder or its Affiliates since the date as of which such number of outstanding shares of Common Stock was reported.  By written notice to the Company, the Holder may increase or decrease the Maximum Percentage to any other percentage specified in such notice; provided that (i) any such increase will not be effective until the sixty-first (61st ) day after such notice is delivered to the Company, (ii) any such increase or decrease will apply only to the Holder and not to any other holder of Notes, and (iii) such Maximum Percentage shall not, in any event, exceed 19.99%.

4.  EVENT OF DEFAULT.  Failure by the Company to make payment pursuant to Section 1 hereof shall constitute an event of default (“Event of Default”).  In an Event of Default, the Holder shall be entitled to all legal remedies available to it to pursue collections, and the Company shall bear all reasonable costs of collection, including but not limited to necessary attorneys fees.
 
5.  NO WAIVER.  No failure or delay by the Holder in exercising any right, power or privilege under this Note shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege.  The rights and remedies herein provided shall be cumulative and not exclusively of any rights or remedies provided by applicable law.  No course of dealing between the Company and the Holder shall operate as a waiver of any rights by the Holder.
 
6.  NOTICES; PAYMENTS.
 
(a)  Notices.  Whenever notice is required to be given under this Note, unless otherwise provided herein, such notice shall be given in accordance with the Securities Purchase Agreement.  Unless a specific notice is otherwise required under this Note, the Company shall provide the Holder with prompt written notice of all actions taken pursuant to this Note, including in reasonable detail a description of such action and the reason therefore.
 
(b)  Payments.  Except as otherwise provided in this Note, whenever any payment of cash is to be made by the Company to the Holder, such payment shall be made in lawful money of the United States of America by a check drawn on the account of the Company and sent via overnight courier service to the Holder at such address as previously provided to the Company in writing (which address shall be set forth in the Securities Purchase Agreement); provided that the Holder may elect to receive a payment of cash via wire transfer of immediately available funds by providing the Company with prior written notice setting out such request and the Holder's wire transfer instructions.  Whenever any amount expressed to be due by the terms of this Note is due on any day which is not a Business Day, the same shall instead be due on the next succeeding day which is a Business Day.

9.  SEVERABILITY.  In the event that one or more of the provisions of this Note shall for any reasons be held invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other provision of this Note, but this Note shall be construed as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein.
