  2. 2. Forward-Looking Information and Qualified Person Certain statements in this presentation, other than statements of historical facts relating to the company, constitute “forward‑looking information within the meaning of applicable securities laws. Such forward-looking information may include, but is not limited to, statements with respect to the future financial or operating performance of the company, its subsidiary and its mineral project, the future price of metals, the estimation of mineral resources, the realization of mineral resource estimates, the timing and amount of estimated future production, costs of production, capital, operating and exploration expenditures, costs and timing of the development of new deposits, costs and timing of future exploration, requirements for additional capital, government regulation of mining operations, environmental risks, reclamation expenses, title disputes or claims, limitations of insurance coverage and the timing and possible outcome of pending litigation and regulatory matters. Often, but not always, forward‑looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “plans, “expects, “is expected, “budget, “scheduled, “estimates, “forecasts, “intends,“anticipates, or “believes or variations (including negative 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 are based on the opinions and estimates of management as of the date such statements are made and are based on various assumptions suchas continued political stability in Northern Ireland, that permits required for the company s operations will be obtained in a timely basis in order to permit the company toproceed on schedule with its planned drilling programs, that skilled personnel and contractors will be available as the company s operations continue to grow, that theprice of gold will remain at levels that render the project economic, and that the company will be able to continue raising the necessary capital to finance its operations andrealize on mineral resource estimates and current mine plans.Forward‑looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of thecompany and/or its subsidiary to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward‑looking statements.Such factors include, among others, general business, economic, competitive, political and social uncertainties; the actual results of current exploration activities;conclusions of economic evaluations; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of metals, including gold; possible variations of oregrade or recovery rates; failure to convert estimated mineral resources into mineral reserves; failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; actualresults of reclamation activities; accidents, labour disputes; political instability and risks arising from operating in Northern Ireland; delays in obtaining governmentalapprovals or financing or in the completion of development or construction activities; uncertainties relating to the availability of future financing; inflation; fluctuations inexchange rates; uninsured risks and other risks of the mining industry. Although the company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described inforward‑looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results to differ from those anticipated, estimated or intended. Forward‑lookingstatements contained herein are made as of the date hereof and the company disclaims any obligation to update any forward‑looking statements, whether as a result ofnew information, future events or results, except as may be required by applicable securities laws.

Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance onforward‑looking statements.The technical data in this presentation was taken from the technical report entitled “A Mineral Resource Estimate for the Curraghinalt Gold Deposit and a Review of aProposed Exploration Program for the Tyrone Project, County Tyrone and County Londonderry, Northern Ireland dated May 10, 2010, prepared by B.
