REIS 2013 Broken Hill - Minotaur Exploration ASX:MEP


Published on

The 3rd annual Resources & Energy Investment Symposium (REIS) is on 19-22 May, once again held in the unique city of Broken Hill; Last year’s event exceeded the expectations of all that attended - including over 350 delegates, 12 keynote speakers and more than 30 resource companies presenting their investment opportunities.

A focus for this year’s symposium will be on the current economic climate including its challenges and opportunities, not only in the Australian resources industry, but Australia’s position in the international market.

  2. 2. DisclaimerThis presentation has been prepared by the management of Minotaur Exploration Limited (ASX: MEP) for the general benefit of analysts, brokers and investors and doesnot constitute specific advice to any particular party or persons. Information herein is based on publicly available information, internally developed data and othersources. Where an opinion, projection or forward looking statement is expressed in this presentation, it is based on the assumptions and limitations mentioned hereinand is an expression of present opinion only. No warranties or representations are made or implied as to origin, validity, accuracy, completeness, currency or reliability ofthe information. MEP specifically disclaims and excludes all liability (to the extent permitted by law) for losses, claims, damages, demands, costs and expenses of whatevernature arising in any way out of or in connection with the information, its accuracy, completeness or by reason of reliance by any person on any of it. Where MEPexpresses or implies an expectation or belief as to the success of future exploration and the economic viability of future project evaluations, such expectation or belief isexpressed in good faith and is believed to have a reasonable basis. However, such projected outcomes are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors which couldcause actual results to differ materially from projected future results. Such risks include, but are not limited to, exploration success, metal price volatility, changes tocurrent mineral resource estimates or targets, changes to assumptions for capital and operating costs as well as political and operational risks and government regulatoryoutcomes. MEP disclaims any obligation to advise any person if it becomes aware of any inaccuracy in or omission from any forecast or to update such forecast.The term “Exploration Target” should not be misconstrued as an estimate of Mineral Resources and Reserves as defined in the JORC Code (2004), and the term has notbeen used in that context. The term is conceptual in nature and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the determination of a Mineral Resource. Refer Clause18 of the JORC Code (2004).Information in this presentation that relates to Exploration Results, Mineral Resources or Ore Reserves is based on information compiled by Dr A.P. Belperio, who is a Director and full-time employee of the Company and a Fellow of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. Dr A.P. Belperio has a minimum of 5 years experience, which is relevant to the style of mineralisation and type of deposit under consideration and tothe activity that he is undertaking, to qualify as a Competent Person as defined in the 2004 Edition of the “Australasian Code for Reporting ofExploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves”. Dr A. P. Belperio consents to inclusion in the presentation of matters based on hisinformation in the form and context in which it appears.Competent Person’s Statement
