Some of the statementscontained in the following material may be "forward-looking statements." All statements, other than statements of historical fact, that addressactivities, events or developments that Darwin believes, expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-lookingstatements. Forward-looking statements are often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as "seek," "anticipate," "believe," "plan,""estimate," "expect," and "intend" and statements that an event or result "may," "will," "can," "should," "could," or "might" occur or be achieved andother similar expressions. These forward-looking statements reflect the current expectations or beliefs of Darwin based on information currentlyavailable to Darwin. Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that may cause the actual results of Darwin todiffer materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements, and even if such actual results are realized or substantially realized,there can be no assurance that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on Darwin. Factors that could cause actual results orevents to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things, failure to successfully complete intended financings, capital andother costs varying significantly from estimates, production rates varying from estimates, changes in world metal markets, changes in equitymarkets, uncertainties relating to the availability and costs of financing needed in the future, equipment failure, unexpected geological conditions,imprecision in resource estimates, success of future development initiatives, competition, operating performance of facilities, environmental andsafety risks, delays in obtaining or failure to obtain necessary permits and approvals from local or government authorities, and other developmentand operating risks. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made and, except as may be required by applicablesecurities laws, Darwin disclaims any intent or obligation to update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, futureevents or results or otherwise. Although Darwin believes that assumptions inherent in the forward-looking statements are reasonable,forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and accordingly undue reliance should not be put on such statements dueto the inherent uncertainty therein.
