  • 2. Forward Looking StatementsForward-looking statements relate to future events or the anticipated performance of the Company and reflectmanagement’s expectations or beliefs regarding such future events and anticipated performance. In certaincases, 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 of such wordsand phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will betaken", "occur" or "be achieved", or the negative of these words or comparable terminology. By their verynature forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which maycause the actual performance of the Company to be materially different from any anticipated performanceexpressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.Important factors that could cause actual results to differ from these forward-looking statements include risksrelated to failure to define mineral resources, to convert estimated mineral resources to reserves, the grade andrecovery of ore which is mined varying from estimates, future prices of gold and other commodities, capital andoperating costs varying significantly from estimates, political risks arising from operating in Brazil, uncertaintiesrelating to the availability and costs and availability of financing needed in the future, changes in equitymarkets, inflation, changes in exchange rates, fluctuations in commodity prices, delays in the development ofprojects, conclusions of economic evaluations, changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined,uninsured risks and other risks involved in the mineral exploration and development industry.Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual performance todiffer materially from that described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause itsperformance not to be as anticipated. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will proveto be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in suchstatements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Theseforward-looking statements are made as of the date of this presentation and the Company does not intend,and does not assume any obligation, to update these forward-looking statements.Qualified Person - Murray Paterson, P.Geo, Vice President Exploration and Development for Lago DouradoMinerals Ltd, is the Qualified Person, within the meaning of NI 43-101,who reviewed the technical data in thispresentation.LDM-TSXV 2
