  1. 1. Corporate Presentation September 2012www.EquinoxExploration.com TSX.V : EQX
  2. 2. Forward Looking Statements All statements, other than statements of historical fact, contained in this presentation constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and “forward-looking information” under similar Canadian legislation and are based on the reasonable expectations, estimates and projections of the Company as of the date of this presentation. Forward-looking statements and forward-looking information include, without limitation, possible events, trends and opportunities and statements with respect to possible events, trends and opportunities, including with respect to, among other things, the growth of the phosphate market, global market trends, expected industry demands, the Company’s business strategy and investment criteria, the nature of potential business acquisitions, costs and timing of business acquisitions, capital expenditures, successful development of potential acquisitions, currency fluctuations, government regulation and environmental regulation. Generally, forward-looking statements and forward-looking information can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “plans”, “expects” or “does not expect”, “is expected”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates” or “does not anticipate”, or “believes”, or variations of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will be taken”, “occur” or “be achieved”. Forward-looking statements and forward-looking information are necessarily based upon a number of estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by the company as of the date of such statements, are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. The estimates and assumptions contained in this presentation, which may prove to be incorrect, include, but are not limited to, the various assumptions of the company set forth herein. Known and unknown factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements and forward-looking information. Such factors include, but are not limited to fluctuations in the supply and demand for potash, changes in competitive pressures, including pricing pressures, timing and amount of capital expenditures, changes in capital markets and corresponding effects on the company’s investments, changes in currency and exchange rates, unexpected geological or environmental conditions, changes in and the effects of, government legislation, taxation, controls and regulations and political or economic developments in jurisdictions in which the Company carries on its business or expects to do business, success in retaining or recruiting officers and directors for the future success of the Company’s business, officers and directors allocating their time to other ventures; success in obtaining any required additional financing to make target acquisition or develop an acquired business; employee relations, and risks associated with obtaining any necessary licenses or permits. Many of these uncertainties and contingencies can affect the company’s actual results and could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements and forward-looking information made by, or on behalf of, the Company. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements and forward-looking information will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. All of the forward-looking statements and forward-looking information made in this presentation are qualified by these cautionary statements. Although management of the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements or forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements and forward-looking information. The Company does not undertake to update any forward-looking statements or forward-looking information that are incorporated by reference herein, except in accordance with applicable securities laws. Timelines used in this presentation are for the purpose of aiding management in the planning and implementation of the project, and are not based on a detailed assessment of project requirements. Consequently the timelines are subject to material revision based on when technical reports and/or feasibility studies, if any, are completed. Future phases of the project are contingent upon completion of preceding phases. Nothing in this presentation should be construed as either an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy or sell shares in any jurisdiction. R. Tim Henneberry, P.Geo. (British Columbia) a member of the Equinox Advisory Board, is the Qualified Person who has reviewed and approved the technical content of this presentationwww.EquinoxExploration.com 2 TSX.V : EQX
