  • 2. DisclaimerSome statements in this presentation contain forward-looking information. We have identified such statements with as asterisk for your ease of identification offorward looking-information. These statements include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to the expected benefits from having a management teamseeking to aggressively grow the Company into a mid tier gold producer through the exploration and development of existing assets, the completion ofthe acquisition of a significant interest in the Eagle Mountain Project and the development potential of the Companys properties. Specifically, any statementsregarding the potential increase of the Company’s inferred resource at the Eagle Mountain Project and the goals and objectives of the Company are by theirnature forward looking information. These statements address future events and conditions and, as such, involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and otherfactors which may cause the Company’s actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance orachievements expressed or implied by the statements.General risk factors and assumptions include, among others, the effects of general economic conditions, the price of gold and other metals, changing foreignexchange rates and actions by government authorities, uncertainties associated with legal proceedings and negotiations, competition for resources, andmisjudgements in the course of preparing forward-looking information.Specific risk factors include risks associated with the ability obtain any necessary approvals, waivers, consents and other requirements necessary or desirable topermit or facilitate the development of the Company’s properties, the risk that any applicable conditions of the acquisition of an interest in the Eagle MountainProject may not be satisfied, risks associated with project development; the need for additional financing; operational risks associated with exploration activitiesand results, mining and mineral processing; environmental liability claims and insurance; reliance on key personnel; the potential for conflicts of interest amongcertain officers, directors or promoters of the Company with certain other projects; the volatility of the Company’s common share price and volume; taxconsequences; and other risks and uncertainties.Eagle Mountain is in the exploration stage only and is without a known body of commercial ore. An increase in the current inferred resource will only occur iffavourable exploration results are obtained. The business of exploring for minerals involves a high degree of risk.Any forward-looking information contained in this presentation is based on the geological interpretation of results obtained from exploration activities conductedon the Company’s properties to date, including geological and geophysical surveys, sampling and mapping programs and drilling results. Results are interpretedby the Company’s management and staff and future programs and plans are formulated based on such interpretations. In making statements that containforward-looking information, management assumes that the results are accurate and will be verified by independent examination, that in country conditions andin the state of the financial markets remain somewhat constant and that management has the technical and financial capability and expertise to achieve theCompany’s growth plans.
