  4. 4. 4<br />Disclaimer<br />Statements in this presentation other than purelyhistorical information, including statements relating to Woulfe Mining’s future plans, objectives or expected results, constitute forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on numerous assumptions and are subject to the risks and uncertainties inherent in Woulfe Mining’s business, including risks inherent in mineral exploration and development. As a result, actual results may vary materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. Note that Woulfe Mining refers to historical resource estimates in this presentation. Source, date, relevance, reliability and explanations on categories are presented with the historical estimates.<br />A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical resources as current mineral resources. The issuer is not treating the historical estimates as current mineral resources and the historical estimates should not be relied upon.<br />This PowerPoint presentation was prepared to assist interested parties in making their own assessment of Woulfe Mining and its mineral properties, and does not purport to contain all of the information that a prospective investor may desire. In all cases, interested parties should conduct their own investigation and analysis of the Company, its assets and the information provided in this presentation. Any and all statements, forecasts, projections and estimates contained in this presentation are based on management’s current knowledge and no representation or warranty is made as to their accuracy and/or reliability. <br />Unless otherwise stated, all resource and reserve estimates in the document are historical in nature and do not comply with the current NI 43-101 reporting standards.<br />This presentation/powerpoint does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation to buy any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“the U.S. Securities Act”) or any state securities law and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.<br />
