Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Site contains forward-looking statements (including "forward-looking information" within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation and "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the US Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995) concerning the business, operations, financial performance and condition of Miocene Metals. Statements related to "reserves" and "resources" are deemed forward-looking statements as they involve the implied assessment, based on realistically assumed and justifiable technical and economic conditions, that an inventory of mineralization will become economically extractable. Forward-looking statements also include, but are not limited to, the realization of mineral reserve estimates, the timing and amount of estimated production, costs of production, capital expenditures, costs and timing of the development of new deposits, success of exploration activities, permitting timelines, hedging practices, government regulation of mining operations, environmental risks, unanticipated reclamation expenses, timing and possible outcome of pending litigation, title disputes or claims and limitations on insurance coverage. Generally, these forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "plans", "expects" or "does not expect", "is expected", "budget", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate", "believes" or variations of such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will be taken", "occur" or "be achieved". Miocene Metals has relied on a number of assumptions and estimates in making such forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, the future price of copper, gold, molybdenum and other minerals and metals, there being no significant disruptions on Miocene Metals’ operations, mineral recovery rates, ongoing capital, operating and exploration expenditures, and costs and timing of future exploration. Such assumptions and estimates are made in light of the trends and conditions that are considered to be relevant and reasonable based on the information available and the circumstances existing at the time the statements were made. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and such information is inherently subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that are difficult to predict and may be beyond the control of Miocene Metals. A number of risks and factors may cause actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements of Miocene Metals to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements and there can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate. Such risks and factors include, without limitation, risks related to the integration of acquisitions, risks related to international operations, risks related to joint venture operations, actual results of current exploration activities, actual results of current reclamation activities, requirements for additional capital, conclusions of economic evaluations, changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined, currency exchange rate fluctuations, possible variations in mineral reserves, grade or recovery rates, failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated, accidents and labour disputes, delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of development or construction activities, other risks of the mining industry, and those other risks set forth in Miocene Metals’ public filings. Although Miocene Metals has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors and risks that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. Consequently, readers should not place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. In addition, all such forward-looking statements relate to the date on which they were made.
Miocene Metals does not undertake (and disclaims any intention or obligation) to update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, save and except as may be required by applicable securities laws. The forward-looking statements contained on this Site are expressly qualified by this disclaimer.
Cautionary Note to United States Investors Concerning Estimates of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resources
This Site uses the terms "Measured", "Indicated" and "Inferred Mineral Resources" in accordance with the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) Definition Standards. While such terms are recognized under Canadian securities legislation, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize these terms. The term "Inferred Mineral Resource" refers to a mineral resource for which quantity and grade or quality can be estimated on the basis of geological evidence and limited sampling and reasonably assumed, but not verified, geological and grade continuity. These estimates are based on limited information and it cannot be assumed that all or any part of an "Inferred Mineral Resource" will be upgraded to a higher classification resource, such as "Indicated" or "Measured", as a result of continued exploration. Accordingly, an estimate relating to an "Inferred Mineral Resource" is insufficient to allow meaningful application of technical and economic parameters or to enable an evaluation of economic viability. Under Canadian securities legislation, estimates of an "Inferred Mineral Resource" may not form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. As a result, United States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an "Inferred Mineral Resource" exists, or is economically or legally mineable. Investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of "Indciated" or "Measured Mineral Resources" will ever be converted into "Mineral Reserves" (being the economically mineable part of an "Indicated" or "Measured Mineral Resource").
Disclosure of Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves
Readers are advised that National Instrument 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators requires that each category of mineral resources and mineral reserves be reported separately. For more information, readers should refer to Miocene Metals’ continuous disclosure documents on its corporate profile page on SEDAR which can be accessed at www.sedar.com (those documents being subject to the qualifications and notes set forth therein).
