When used in this presentation, words such as “may”, “would”, “could”, “will”, “expect”, “anticipate”, “estimate”, “believe”, “contemplate”, “intend”, “budget” “plan” and other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to the timing and amount of estimated future exploration, success of exploration activities, expenditures, permitting, and requirements for additional capital and access to data. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Westbridge Energy Inc.
