Forward Looking Statements

Resource exploration, development and operations are highly speculative, characterized by a number of significant risks, which even a combination of careful evaluation, experience and knowledge may not eliminate, including, among other things, unprofitable efforts resulting not only from the failure to discover mineral resources, but from finding mineral deposits that though present, are insufficient in quantity and quality to be economic or to return a profit from production. There can be no assurance that such statements and information will prove to be accurate and actual results could differ materially from those suggested by any forward-looking statements and information. Sanatana disclaims any obligation to update or revise such forward looking statements and information except as required by law.
