refined; future prices of minerals; possible variations in grade or
recovery rates; failure of equipment or processes to operate as
anticipated; the failure of contracted parties to perform; labour
disputes and other risks of the mining industry; delays in obtaining
governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of
exploration, as well as those factors disclosed in the company’s
