Claude Resources Corporate Presentation: March 2012

  2. 2. Cautionary StatementCautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking InformationThis document contains certain forward-looking statements relating but not limited to the Company’s expectations, intentions, plans andbeliefs. Forward-looking information can often be identified by forward-looking words such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “expect”, “goal”,“plan”, “intent”, “estimate”, “may” and “will” or similar words suggesting future outcomes or other expectations, beliefs, plans,objectives, assumptions, intentions or statements about future events or performance. Forward-looking information may include reserveand resource estimates, estimates of future production, unit costs, costs of capital projects and timing of commencement of operations,and is based on current expectations that involve a number of business risks and uncertainties. Factors that could cause actual results todiffer materially from any forward-looking statement include, but are not limited to, failure to establish estimated resources and reserves,the grade and recovery of mined ore varying from estimates, capital and operating costs varying significantly from estimates, delays inobtaining or failures to obtain required governmental, environmental or other project approvals, inflation, changes in exchange rates,fluctuations in commodity prices, delays in the development of projects and other factors. Forward-looking statements are subject torisks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from expected results.Potential shareholders and prospective investors should be aware that these statements are subject to known and unknown risks,uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those suggested by the forward-lookingstatements. Shareholders are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking information. By its nature, forward-lookinginformation involves numerous assumptions, inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, that contribute to the possibilitythat the predictions, forecasts, projections and various future events will not occur. Claude Resources undertakes no obligation to updatepublicly or otherwise revise any forward-looking information whether as a result of new information, future events or other such factorswhich affect this information, except as required by law.Cautionary note to U.S. investors concerning resource estimateThe resource estimates in this document were prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101, adopted by the CanadianSecurities Administrators. The requirements of National Instrument 43-101 differ significantly from the requirements of the United StatesSecurities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). In this document, we use the terms “measured”, “indicated” and “inferred” resources.Although these terms are recognized and required in Canada, the SEC does not recognize them. The SEC permits U.S. miningcompanies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only those mineral deposits that constitute “reserves”. Under United Statesstandards, mineralization may not be classified as a reserve unless the determination has been made that the mineralization could beeconomically and legally extracted at the time the determination is made. United States investors should not assume that all or anyportion of a measured or indicated resource will ever be converted into “reserves”. Further, “inferred resources” have a great amount ofuncertainty as to their existence and whether they can be mined economically or legally, and United States investors should not assumethat “inferred resources” exist or can be legally or economically mined, or that they will ever be upgraded to a higher category. 2
