  2. 2. 2" Cautionary StatementCautionary Note to U.S. Investors – The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) permitsmining companies in their filings with the SEC to disclose only those mineral deposits that a company caneconomically and legally extract or produce. We use certain terms in this presentation, such as “inferred resource”,that the SEC guidelines strictly prohibit us from including in our filing with the SEC. U.S. investors are urged toconsider closely the disclosure contained in our Management Discussion and Analysis for the quarter ended March31, 2010 filed on SEDAR and available at www.sedar.com.This document and the information contained in it do not constitute a prospectus and do not form any part of an offerof, or invitation to apply for, securities in any jurisdiction. Potential investors should no rely solely on the informationcontained herein prior to making any investment decision. Investors should seek independent advice from a qualifiedfinance and investment advisor, giving due regard to their own personal circumstances, prior to forming anyinvestment decisionSafe Harbor Statement - This presentation may contain certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning ofthe United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements reflect our current belief and arebased upon currently available information. Actual results could differ materially from those described in thispresentation as a result of numerous factors, some of which are outside of the control of Extorre Gold Mines Limited.Many of the assay results presented are preliminary and may not be accurate due to various factors, including but notlimited to sample recoveries, true widths and interpretations.Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) – The Cerro Moro PEA is by definition preliminary in nature as itincludes some mineral resources that are too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations appliedto them that would enable them to be categorized as reserves at this time. As such there is no certainty that thepreliminary assessment and project economics will be realized. A NI 43-101 Technical Report for the CerroMoro PEA has been filed on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and is posted on the Company’s website atwww.extorre.com
