12. CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This website contains “forward looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Those statements include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to production from the Cerro Los Gatos Mine, further exploration of the Los Gatos District and the further exploration and development of the Sunshine Complex, timing of expected production at the Sunshine Mine, estimated calculations of mineral reserves and resources at our properties, results of the preliminary economic assessment on the Sunshine Complex, results of the feasibility study on the Cerro Los Gatos Mine, expected cost savings, our prospects, plans and objectives and industry trends. In some cases, you can identify these statements by forward looking words such as “may,” “might,” “could,” “would,” “achieve,” “budget,” “scheduled,” “forecasts,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential” or “continue,” the negative of these terms and other comparable terminology. These forward looking statements may include projections of our future financial performance, our anticipated growth strategies and anticipated trends in our industry. Numerous risks and uncertainties may cause our actual future results to be materially different than those expressed in our forward-looking statements. We caution you not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. We do not undertake any obligation to make any revisions to these forward-looking statements, except as required by law.

13. “Inferred mineral resources” are subject to uncertainty as to their existence and as to their economic and legal feasibility. The level of geological uncertainty associated with an inferred mineral resource is too high to apply relevant technical and economic factors likely to influence the prospects of economic extraction in a manner useful for evaluation of economic viability.
