This press release includes certain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and Canadian securities laws including statements regarding the financing and use of proceeds. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as: believe, expect, anticipate, intend, estimate, postulate and similar expressions or are those which, by their nature, refer to future events. Although the Company believes that such statements are reasonable, there can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. The Company cautions investors that any forward-looking statements by the Company are not guarantees of future performance, and that actual results may differ materially from those in forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from the Company's expectations include the need to satisfy the conditions set forth in any definitive agreement entered into in connection with the Offering and with each of the Bonanza and Radisson Agreements upon which the completion of the Offering is contingent; the need to satisfy regulatory and legal requirements with respect to the Bonanza and Radisson Agreements and the Offering; risks related to the Company's reactivation on the Exchange; risks related to the exploration stage of the Company's projects; market fluctuations in prices for securities of exploration stage companies; and uncertainties about the availability of additional financing; risks related to the Company's ability to identify one or more economic deposits on the properties, and variations in the nature, quality and quantity of any mineral deposits that may be located on the properties; risks related to the Company's ability to obtain any necessary permits, consents or authorizations required for its activities on the properties; and risks related to the Company's ability to produce minerals from the properties successfully or profitably. Trading in the securities of the Company should be considered highly speculative.
