    1. 1. Crocodile Gold Annual General Meeting June 5th 2014
    2. 2. Forward Looking Information 2 This presentation contains forward-looking information under Canadian securities legislation. Forward-looking information includes, but is not limited to, statements with respect to the development potential and timetable of the projects; the Company’s ability to raise additional funds as necessary or on commercially reasonable terms; the future price of gold; the estimation of mineral resources and mineral reserves; conclusions of economic evaluation (including scoping studies); the realization of mineral resource and reserve estimates; the timing and amount of estimated future production, development and exploration; costs of future activities; capital and operating expenditures; success of exploration activities; mining or processing issues; currency exchange rates; government regulation of mining operations; and environmental risks. Generally, forward-looking information can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “plans”, “expects” or “does not expect”, “is expected”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “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 information is based on the opinions and estimates of management as of the date such statements are made. Estimates regarding the anticipated timing, amount and cost of mining at the projects are based on assumptions underlying mineral resource estimates and the realization of such estimates; results of previous mining activities at the projects, and detailed research and analysis completed by independent of the Company; research and estimates regarding the timing of delivery for long-lead items; knowledge regarding the factors consultants and management involved in building a mine and other factors described in the technical reports and Annual Information Form filed under the profile of the Company on SEDAR. Capital and operating cost estimates are based on results of previous mining activities, research of the Company and independent consultants, recent estimates of construction and mining costs and other factors that are set out in the scoping study. Production estimates are based on mine plans and production schedules, which have been developed by the Company’s personnel and independent consultants. Forward-looking information is subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information, including but not limited to risks related to: timing and availability of external financing on acceptable terms; unexpected events and delays during construction, expansion and start-up; variations in ore grade and recovery rates; receipt and revocation of government approvals; actual results of exploration and mining activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of gold; failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; accidents, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry. Although management of the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such 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 information. The Company does not undertake to update any forward-looking information except in accordance with applicable securities laws. Investors are advised that National Instrument NI 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators requires that each category of mineral reserves and mineral resources be reported separately. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Due to the uncertainty of measured, indicated or inferred mineral resources, these mineral resources may never be upgraded to proven and probable mineral reserves. Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors Concerning Estimates of Measured, Indicated or Inferred Resources The information presented uses the terms “measured”, “indicated” and “inferred” mineral resources. United States investors are advised that while such terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize these terms. “Inferred mineral resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. United States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of measured or indicated mineral resources will ever be converted into mineral reserves. United States investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable. Non-IFRS Measures Crocodile Gold believes that investors use certain indicators to assess gold mining companies. The indicators are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards. “Operational Cash Cost per Ounce” is a non-IFRS performance measure which could provide an indication of the mining and processing efficiency at the operations. It is determined by dividing the operating expenses, excluding stock-based compensation allocated to the operating expense and next of silver revenue, by the number of ounces of gold sold. There are variations in the method of computation of “operational cash cost per ounce” as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies. For more detail on the Operational Cash Cost per Ounce determination for Crocodile Gold, please visit www.sedar.com or www.crocgold.com and review the latest Annual Financial Statements issued on March 19, 2014.
