  2. 2. CAUTIONARY STATEMENTThis presentation contains forward looking information, within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation, and forward looking statements, within themeaning of applicable United States securities legislation, which reflects management’s expectations regarding Teranga Gold Corporation’s (“Teranga” or the“Company”) future growth, results of operations (including, without limitation, future production and capital expenditures), performance (both operational andfinancial) and business prospects (including the timing and development of new deposits and the success of exploration activities) and opportunities. Whereverpossible, words such as “plans”, “expects”, “does not expect”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “anticipate” or “does not anticipate”, “believe”, “intend”and similar expressions or statements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved, have been usedto identify such forward looking information. Although the forward looking information contained in this presentation reflect management’s current beliefs based uponinformation currently available to management and based upon what management believes to be reasonable assumptions, Teranga cannot be certain that actualresults will be consistent with such forward looking information. A number of factors could cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially fromthe results expressed or implied in the forward looking information, including those listed in the “Risk Factors” section of Teranga’s Annual Information Form, datedMarch 28, 2012 (the “AIF”). These factors should be considered carefully and prospective investors should not place undue reliance on the forward lookinginformation. Forward looking information necessarily involves significant known and unknown risks, assumptions and uncertainties that may cause Teranga’s actualresults, performance, prospects and opportunities in future periods to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward looking information. AlthoughTeranga has attempted to identify important risks and factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in the forwardlooking information, there may be other factors and risks that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be noassurance that the forward looking information will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in suchstatements. Accordingly, prospective investors should not place undue reliance on such forward looking information. Teranga expressly disclaims any intention orobligation to update or revise any forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except in accordance withapplicable securities law.Forward looking information and other information contained herein concerning mineral exploration and management’s general expectations concerning the mineralexploration industry are based on estimates prepared by management using data from publicly available industry sources as well as from market research andindustry analysis and on assumptions based on data and knowledge of this industry which management believes to be reasonable. However, this data is inherentlyimprecise, although generally indicative of relative market positions, market shares and performance characteristics. While management is not aware of anymisstatements regarding any industry data presented herein, mineral exploration involves risks and uncertainties and industry data is subject to change based onvarious factors.In addition, please note that statements relating to “reserves” or “resources” are deemed to be forward looking information as they involve the implied assessment,based on certain estimates and assumptions, that the resources and reserves described can be profitably mined in the future. While management has confidence inits projections based on exploration work done to date, the potential quantity and grade disclosed herein is conceptual in nature, and there has been insufficientexploration to define a mineral resource, therefore it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the targets being delineated as a mineral resource.This presentation does not constitute in any way an offer or invitation to subscribe for securities in Teranga pursuant to the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and has notbeen lodged with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission. 2
