  • The Relief Canyon Mine reportedly produced a total of 430,000 ounces of gold from run-of mine tonnage at an average grade of 1.27 grams per tonne (g/t) gold between 1985 and 1989 (Victoria Resource web-site). Historically, the Relief Silver Mine produced between $200,000 and $2,500,000 worth of high grade silver ore through the 1870’s (NBMG Bull 89 – Pershing County Rpt.) Rochester Mine reportedly produced 174 Million oz Silver and 1.1 million oz Gold through 2005 (Midway Gold web-site). Unionville District reportedly produced 1,611 oz Au and more than 220,000 oz Silver from 1868 – 1949 with no production recorded at all for the period of discovery and primary production 1861 through 1866.

    2. 2. Certain information contained or incorporated by reference in this presentation and related material, including any information as to our strategy, plans or future financial or operating performance and other statements that express management’s expectations or estimates of future performance, constitutes forward-looking statements. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, are “forward-looking statements”. Generally “forward-looking statements” can, but not always, be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “plans”, “expects” or “does not expect”, “budget”, “envisages”, “schedule”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “proposes”, “intends”, “anticipates “ or “does not anticipate”, or “believes”, or variations of such words and phrases, or statements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved. Forward-looking statements are necessarily based on a number of estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by the Corporation, are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingences. Known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors may cause the actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements and those forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. Such factors include, but are not limited to: the interpretation of drill results and the estimation of mineral resources and mineral reserves, the geology, grade and continuity of mineral deposits, the possibility that future exploration, development or mining results will not be consistent with the Corporation’s expectations, metal price fluctuations, environmental and regulatory requirements, availability of permits, accidents, equipment breakdowns, title matters, labour disputes or other unanticipated difficulties with or interruptions in exploration or development activities, the inherent uncertainty of production and cost estimates and the potential for unexpected costs and expenses, commodity price fluctuations, currency fluctuations, failure to obtain adequate financing on a timely basis, and other risks and uncertainties. Should one or more of these risks and uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those expressed or implied in forward-looking statements made by or on behalf of the Corporation . Accordingly, readers are advised not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Except as required under applicable securities legislation, the Corporation undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. The Corporation has not done the work necessary to verify any mineral resources currently present at or postulated for the projects. The historical assays and production figures are non-National Instrument 43-101 compliant. TSX.V: TEN Safe Harbor Statement
