Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include, among others, those set forth in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008 and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, under the caption "Risk Factors". Most of these factors are outside the control of the Company. Investors are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

Note to U.S. Investors concerning estimates of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources. We caution U.S. investors that while those terms are recognized and required by Canadian Securities Administrators pursuant to National Instrument 43-101, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize these classification categories for U.S. reporting purposes. As a result, the information contained herein relating to mineral resources may not be comparable to information publicly reported by U.S. companies. "Inferred resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an Inferred Mineral Resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian Securities Administration rules, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that part or all of an inferred resource exists, or is economically or legally minable. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves.
