Note Regarding Forward Looking Statements

This document contains forward-looking statements. More particularly, this document contains statements concerning the completion of the remaining portion of the Private Placement.

The forward-looking statements are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by Glamis, including expectations and assumptions concerning timing of receipt of required regulatory approvals and third party consents and the satisfaction of other conditions to the completion of the remaining portion of the Private Placement.

Although Glamis believes that the expectations and assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements because Glamis can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct. Since forward-looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. These include, but are not limited to, risks that required regulatory and third party approvals and consents are not obtained on terms satisfactory to the parties and risks that other conditions to the completion of the Private Placement are not satisfied on anticipated timelines or at all.

The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are made as of the date hereof and Glamis undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statements or information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless so required by applicable securities laws.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
