Forward Looking Statements

Certain statements and/or graphics in the Corporation’s press releases, web site information and corporate displays, among others, constitute “forward-looking statements”. These statements are based on information currently available to the Corporation and the Corporation provides no assurance that actual results will meet management’s expectations. Forward-looking statements include estimates and statements that describe the Corporation’s future plans, objectives or goals, including words to the effect that the Corporation or management expects a stated condition or result to occur. Forward-looking statements may be identified by terms such as “believes”, “anticipates”, “expects”, “estimates”, “may”, “could”, “would”, “will”, or “plan”, or their conditional or future forms. Since forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results relating to, among other things, results of exploration, project development, reclamation and capital costs of the Corporation’s mineral projects, and the Corporation’s financial condition and prospects, could differ materially from those currently anticipated in such statements for many reasons such as: changes in general economic conditions and conditions in the financial markets; changes in demand and prices for minerals; litigation, legislative, environmental and other judicial, regulatory, political and competitive developments; technological and operational difficulties encountered in connection with the activities of the Corporation; and other matters discussed in this news release. This list is not exhaustive of the factors that may affect any of the Corporation’s forward-looking statements. These and other factors should be considered carefully and readers should not place undue reliance on the Corporation’s forward-looking statements. The Corporation does not undertake to update any forward-looking statement that may be made from time to time by the Corporation or on its behalf, except if required to do so by applicable securities laws.

You are cautioned not to place any undue reliance on any forward-looking statement.

Forward-looking statements or information related to Exploration.

Relating to exploration, the identification of exploration targets and any implied future investigation of such targets on the basis of specific geological, geochemical and geophysical evidence or trends are future-looking and subject to a variety of possible outcomes which may or may not include the discovery, or extension, or termination of mineralization. Further, areas around known mineralized intersections or surface showings may be marked by wording such as “open”, “untested”, “possible extension” or “exploration potential” or by symbols such as “?”. Such wording or symbols should not be construed as a certainty that mineralization continues or that the character of mineralization (e.g. grade or thickness) will remain consistent from a known and measured data point. The key risks related to exploration in general are that chances of identifying economical reserves are extremely small.
