When used in this document, the words “anticipate”, “expect”, “estimate”, “forecast”, “will”, “planned”, and similar expressions are intended toidentify forward-looking statements or information.Specifically, this presentation contains forward looking statements regarding the results and projections contained in the February 2011 technical report of theHaile Gold project, including the expected mine life, recovery, capital costs, cash operating costs and other costs and anticipated production of the described openpit mine, the projected internal rate of return, the projected payback period, the availability of capital for development, sensitivity to metal prices, ore grade, thereserve and resource estimates on the project, the financial analysis, the timing for completion of the revised feasibility study on the Haile Gold project, the timingand amount of future production, the timing of construction of the proposed mine and process facilities, capital and operating expenditures, the timing of the receiptof permits, rights and authorizations, communications with local stakeholders and community relations, availability of financing and any and all other timing,development, operational, financial, economic, legal, regulatory and political factors that may influence future events or conditions and expected drilling activities.In addition, this presentation also contains updated resource estimates contained in the February 2011 technical reports.Scientific and technical information referred herein has been extracted from and are hereby qualified in their entirety by reference to the aforementioned technicalreports (“Technical Reports”). Joshua Snider, P.E., Thomas L. Drielick, P.E., Lee “Pat” Gochnour, M.M.S.A., John Marek, P.E. and Derek Wittwer, P.E. areresponsible for preparing the Technical Reports. Each of the above referenced persons is a “qualified person” as defined in National Instrument 43-101 —Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.Such forward‐looking statements are based on a number of material factors and assumptions, including, but not limited in any manner, those disclosed in anyaother of Romarco’s public filings, and include the ultimate determination of mineral reserves and resources, availability and final receipt of required approvals,licenses and permits, sufficient working capital to develop and operate the proposed mine, access to adequate services and supplies, economic conditions,commodity prices, foreign currency exchange rates, interest rates, access to capital and debt markets and associated cost of funds, availability of a qualified workforce, lack of social opposition and legal challenges, and the ultimate ability to mine, process and sell mineral products on economically favorable terms. WhileRomarco considers these assumptions to be reasonable based on information currently available to it, they may prove to be incorrect. Actual results may vary fromsuch forward‐looking information for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to risks and uncertainties disclosed in other Romarco filings at‐looking statements are based upon management’s beliefs, estimate and opinions on the date the statements are made and, other than as required by law,Romarco does not intend, and undertakes no obligation to update any forward‐looking information to reflect, among other things, new information or future eventsCautionary Note to United States Investors Concerning Estimates of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources:Certain tables may use the terms “Measured”, “Indicated” and “Inferred” Resources. United States investors are advised that while such terms are recognized andrequired by Canadian regulations, however, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. “Inferred Mineral Resources” have agreat 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 MineralResource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may not form the basis of feasibility or othereconomic studies. United States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of Measured or Indicated Mineral Resources will ever be converted intoMineral Reserves. United States investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of a Mineral Resource is economically or legally mineable.2   All figures are US$ unless otherwise indicated
