Dalradian Resources AGM Presentation 2017

  1. 1. June 23, 2017 Patrick F.N. Anderson AGM President & CEO
  2. 2. 2 FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION AND QUALIFIED PERSON 2 This presentation contains “forward looking information” which may include, but is not limited to, statements with respect to the future financial or operating performance of the Company and its subsidiaries (collectively, “Dalradian”) and its mineral projects, 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 regulatory matter and the realization of the expected production, economics and mine life of the Curraghinalt gold deposit. Often, but not always, forward looking statements can be identified by the use of words and phrases 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 such as the continued political stability in Northern Ireland, that permits required for Dalradian’s operations will be obtained on a timely basis in order to permit Dalradian to proceed on schedule with its planned exploration and mine development, construction and production programs, that skilled personnel and contractors will be available as Dalradian’s operations continue to grow, that the price of gold will be at levels that render Dalradian’s mineral projects economic, that the Company will be able to continue raising the necessary capital to finance its operations and realize on mineral resource and mineral reserve estimates and current mine plans and that the assumptions, qualifications, parameters and methods contained in the Technical Report FS (as defined below) are accurate and complete, that the results of the ESIA will be positive and that a permitting application for mine construction will be approved. Forward looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Dalradian 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 and future exploration activities; the actual results of reclamation activities; conclusions of economic evaluations; meeting various expected cost estimates; changes in project parameters and/or economic assessments as plans continue to be refined; future prices of metals; possible variations of mineral grade or recovery rates; the risk that actual costs may exceed estimated costs; failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; accidents, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry; political instability; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of development or construction activities, as well as those factors discussed in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2016 dated March 23, 2017 (the “AIF”). Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results to differ from those anticipated, estimated or intended. Forward looking statements contained herein are made as of the date of this presentation and the Company disclaims any obligation to update any forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or results, except as may be required by applicable securities laws. There can be no assurance that forward looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward looking statements. Certain scientific and technical data in this presentation is based on and was derived from the Technical Report Feasibility Study (the”Technical Report FS”) titled “NI 43-101 Feasibility Study Technical Report on the Curraghinalt Gold Project Northern Ireland” with an effective date of December 12, 2016, prepared by: (i) Garett Macdonald, P.Eng.; Michael Makarenko, P.Eng., Stacy Freudigmann, P.Eng. and Indi Gopinathan, P.Eng., each of JDS Energy & Mining Inc. (“JDS”); (ii) William Harding, C.Geol. of SRK Consulting (UK) Ltd.; and (iii) Jean-François Couture, P.Geo., Bruce Murphy, P.Eng., and Cam Scott, P.Eng., each of SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc.

The scientific and technical data contained herein is subject to and qualified by all of the assumptions, qualifications and procedures described in the Technical Report FS, as applicable.
