Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This website contains “forward-looking statements” and “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable securities legislation, concerning the business, operations and financial performance and condition of the Company. Any statements that express or involve discussions with respect to predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions or future events or performance are not statements of historical fact and may constitute forward-looking statements. Often, but not always, forward-looking statements and forward-looking information can be identified by words such as “pro forma”, “plans”, “expects”, “may”, “should”, “could”, “will”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates”, “believes”, or variations including negative variations thereof of such words and phrases that refer to certain actions, events or results that may, could, would, might or will occur or be taken or achieved.
Forward-looking statements contained in this website include statements with respect to:
- expectations regarding the potential mineralization and geological merits of the Company’s projects,
- the Company’s goals regarding exploration of projects and regarding raising capital and conducting further exploration and development of its projects;
- the Company’s proposed plans for advancing its projects, including drilling and other exploration work;
- expectations regarding the continuity of mineral deposits, including in relation to adjacent or other properties (including producing or past-producing properties) that are in the vicinity or same region as the Company’s projects;
- expectations regarding any environmental issues that may affect planned or future exploration programs;
- mineral exploitation and exploration program cost estimates;
- statements with respect to the future price of copper, zinc, lead, silver, gold and other metals;
- timing and completion of geological studies and reports; and
- government regulation of mineral exploration and development operations in Canada.
Estimates of mineral resources and mineral reserves may also constitute forward-looking statements and information in that they represent estimates of mineralization that may be encountered if mining is commenced, and/or potential economic viability of such mineralization.
Forward-looking statements and forward-looking information involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to differ materially from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements or forward-looking information, including but not limited to: (i) the Company’s expectations in connection with the projects, exploration programs and development plans discussed herein being met, (ii) the impact of general business and economic conditions, global liquidity and credit availability on the timing of cash flows and the values of assets and liabilities based on projected future conditions fluctuating metal prices and currency exchange rates (iii) the viability and development of projects on a basis consistent with the Company’s current expectations, (iv) changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined, (v) the possibility of project cost overruns or unanticipated costs and expenses, (vi) higher prices for fuel, steel, power, labour and other consumables contributing to higher costs, (vii) general risks of the mining industry, (viii) failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated, (ix) unanticipated results of future studies, (x) costs and timing of the development of new deposits, (xi) success of exploration and drilling activities, (xii) risks and uncertainties relating to the interpretation of drill results and other exploration data, and the geology, grade and continuity of mineral deposits, (xiii) the possibility that future exploration results will not be consistent with the Company’s expectations, (xiv) risks related to metallurgical characteristics of mineralization contained within the Company’s properties which may not be fully determined, (xv) potential delays in completion of geological reports (including preliminary economic assessments, pre-feasibility and feasibility studies), or that the contents of geological reports will not be consistent with the Company’s expectations, (xvi) permitting time lines , (xvii) unanticipated environmental risks, (xviii) the continued employment of key employees, (xix) failure to raise adequate capital to meet obligations, (xx) insurance and tax risks, and (xxi) general risks and uncertainties related to the Company’s prospects, properties and business strategy. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended.
These forward-looking statements are based on certain assumptions which the Company believes are reasonable, including that:
- current gold, silver, copper, zinc, lead and other commodity prices will be sustained, or will improve, and global market conditions will stabilize;
- additional financing required by the Company will be available on reasonable terms;
- all necessary government and third party permits, approvals and licences necessary for the planned exploration and development of the Company’s mineral projects will be obtained in a timely manner and on terms acceptable to the Company;
- the Company will not experience any material accident, labour dispute or failure of plant or equipment or other material disruption in the Company’s planned exploration programs;
- exploration equipment and personnel will continue to be available on reasonable terms;
- key management and directors will continue to be retained by the Company; and
- any proposed future development of the Company’s mineral projects will be viable operationally and economically and proceed as expected.
There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to the Company, or that the Company currently deems to be immaterial, may also materially and adversely affect the Company’s business and prospects. Should one or more of these risks and uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in forward-looking statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to update any of the forward-looking statements or forward-looking information on this website, other than as may be required by applicable laws.
Disclosure of Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources
Information concerning the properties and operations of the Company has been prepared in accordance with Canadian standards under applicable Canadian securities laws. National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) of the Canadian Securities Administrators requires that each category of mineral reserves and mineral resources be reported separately.
Ronald Simpson, P. Geo is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 Standards for Disclosure of Mineral Projects. Mr. Simpson, unless otherwise indicated, has prepared or supervised the preparation of the technical information referred to on this website and/or reviewed and approved such disclosure.
Cautionary Note to U.S. Readers Concerning Mineral Reserve and Resource Estimates
This website uses the terms “Mineral Resource”, “Measured Mineral Resource”, “Indicated Mineral Resource” and “Inferred Mineral Resource”, Canadian mining terms as defined in accordance with NI 43-101 under guidelines set out in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (“CIM”) Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves adopted by the CIM Council. While the use of such terms is recognized and required by Canadian regulators the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize such terms. As such, information contained on this website concerning descriptions of mineralization and resources under Canadian standards may not be comparable to information made public by United States companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. An “Inferred Mineral Resource” has a great amount of uncertainty as to its existence and as to its economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an “Inferred Mineral Resource” will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may not form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. Readers are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of Measured or Indicated Resources will ever be converted into Mineral Reserves. Readers are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an “Inferred Mineral Resource” exists, or is economically or legally mineable. In addition, the definitions of “Proven Mineral Reserves” and “Probable Mineral Reserves” under CIM standards differ in certain respects from the standards of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. Under United States standards, mineralization may not be classified as a “reserve” unless the determination has been made that the mineralization could be economically and legally produced or extracted at the time the reserve calculation is made.
