     Pursuant to Rule 13d‑2(a) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Act”), the undersigned hereby amend and supplement the Schedule 13D Statement filed by the undersigned on May 27, 2015 (as amended by that certain Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 11, 2015, that certain Amendment No. 2 to Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 12, 2017, that certain Amendment No. 3 to Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 11, 2017 and that certain Amendment No. 4 to Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 13, 2020, the “Schedule 13D”), relating to the common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Stock”), of Torchlight Energy Resources, Inc. (the “Issuer”), to update certain information with respect to contracts entered into by certain of the undersigned related to certain securities of the Issuer. Unless otherwise indicated, all defined terms used herein shall have the same meanings as those set forth in the Schedule 13D.

6.  CONTRACTS, ARRANGEMENTS, UNDERSTANDINGS OR RELATIONSHIPS WITH RESPECT TO SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER.

Item 6 is hereby amended by adding the following paragraphs to the end of Item 6:

On June 9, 2020, the 86,956 warrants issued to GME on June 9, 2015 expired pursuant to their terms.  GME did not receive any value from Issuer upon expiration of such warrants.

On December 30, 2020, McCabe loaned Issuer $100,000 evidenced by a 6% Secured Convertible Promissory Note (the “McCabe Note”).  The McCabe Note bears interest at the rate of 6% per annum and provides for payment of the principal amount along with all accrued and unpaid interest in one lump sum payment on its maturity date, which shall be the earlier of (i) May 10, 2021 or (ii) the closing of the previously announced business combination transaction between Metamaterial and Issuer. The McCabe Note also provides that the holder has the right, but not the obligation, to convert all outstanding principal and interest under the McCabe Note into common stock of Issuer at a conversion price of $1.00 per share.

On February 1, 2021, MPC converted the entire principal amount of $1.5 million of the MPC Note into common stock of Issuer at its conversion price of $0.375 per share, totaling 4,000,000 shares. Additionally, McCabe converted the entire principal amount of the $100,000 McCabe Note into common stock of Issuer at its conversion price of $1.00 per share, totaling 100,000 shares.

The foregoing descriptions of the McCabe Note does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the actual text of the McCabe Note, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.13.
