Caution Regarding Forward Looking Statements
Information in this news release that is not a statement of historical
fact constitutes forward-looking information.  Such forward-looking
information includes statements regarding the Company’s planned
exploration programs.  Actual results, performance or achievements of
the Company may vary from the results suggested by such forward-looking
statements due to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other
factors. Such factors include, among others, that the business of
exploration for gold and other precious minerals involves a high degree
of risk and is highly speculative in nature; few properties that are
explored are ultimately developed into producing mines; geological
factors; the actual results of current and future exploration; changes
in project parameters as plans continue to be evaluated, as well as
those factors disclosed in the Company’s publicly filed documents.

There can be no assurance that any mineralisation that is discovered
will be proven to be economic, or that future required regulatory
licensing or approvals will be obtained. However, the Company believes
that the assumptions and expectations reflected in the forward-looking
information are reasonable. Assumptions have been made regarding, among
other things, the Company’s ability to carry on its exploration
activities, the sufficiency of funding, the timely receipt of required
approvals, the price of gold and other precious metals, that the
Company will not be affected by adverse political events, the ability
of the Company to operate in a safe, efficient and effective manner and
the ability of the Company to obtain further financing as and when
required and on reasonable terms. Readers should not place undue
reliance on forward-looking information.
