PLACEMENT AND ACCEPTANCE OF BIDS Unless the auction of a lot is announced as absolute, Mesquite Gold reserves the right to accept or reject any bid for any reason whatsoever, at any time before, during or subsequent to any auction. Any and all bids made by a Bidder constitute irrevocable offers to purchase the lot at the maximum bid amount of the Bidder and may not be withdrawn by the Bidder under any circumstances.
