NOTE 11 – STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
During the year ended September 30, 2020, upon the passing of a member of the management team, the Company modified the vesting terms of a stock option grant previously made to this individual which vested the instrument immediately. The option was for three million shares and was originally granted in June 2018. The Company recorded approximately $8,000 in additional compensation expense related to this modification.
Stock-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date, based on the estimated fair value of the award using the Black Scholes option pricing model, and is recognized over the vesting period. The Company recognized approximately $968,000 and $ 1,629,000 in stock-based compensation expense for the years ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. A portion of these costs, approximately $498,000 and $885,000 were capitalized to unproved properties for year ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, with the remainder recorded as general and administrative expenses for each respective period. The Company did not issue any new stock option grants during the year ended September 30, 2020.
