FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTSThis presentation contains forward-looking statements and forward-looking information as defined under Canadian and U.S. securities laws. All statements,other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements. The words "expect", "believe", "anticipate", "will", "intend", "estimate", "forecast","budget" and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include information as to strategy, plans or future financial oroperating performance, such as the Companys expansion plans, project timelines, production plans, projected cash flows or capital expenditures, costestimates, projected exploration results, reserve and resource estimates and other statements that express managements expectations or estimates of futureperformance.Forward-looking statements are necessarily based upon a number of factors and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by management, areinherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies. Known and unknown factors could cause actual results to differ materially from thoseprojected in the forward-looking statements. Such factors include: uncertainty of production and cost estimates; fluctuations in the price of gold and foreignexchange rates; the uncertainty of replacing depleted reserves; the risk that the Young-Davidson and El Chanate mine may not perform as planned; changesin laws or regulations in Canada, Mexico and other jurisdictions in which the Company may carry on business; risks of obtaining necessary licenses, permits,authorizations or approvals for operations or projects such as Kemess; contests over title to properties; the speculative nature of mineral exploration anddevelopment; risks related to aboriginal title claims; compliance risks with respect to current and future environmental regulations; disruptions affectingoperations; opportunities that may be pursued by the Company; employee relations; availability and costs of mining inputs and labor; the ability to securecapital to execute business plans; volatility of the Companys share price; any decision to declare dividends; the effect of future financings; litigation; risk ofloss due to sabotage and civil disturbances; the values of assets and liabilities based on projected future cash flows; risks arising from holding derivativeinstruments; risks arising from the absence of hedging; adequacy of internal control over financial reporting; changes in our credit rating; and the impact ofinflation.Actual results and developments are likely to differ, and may differ materially, from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements containedherein. Such statements are based on a number of assumptions which may prove to be incorrect, including assumptions about: business and economicconditions; commodity prices and the price of key inputs such as labour, fuel and electricity; credit market conditions and conditions in financial marketsgenerally; revenue and cash flow estimates, production levels, development rates and the costs for each; our ability to procure equipment and supplies insufficient quantities and on a timely basis; the timing of the receipt of permits and other approvals for our projects and operations; our ability to attract andretain skilled employees and contractors for our operations; the accuracy of our reserve and resource estimates; the impact of changes in currency exchangerates on our costs and results; interest rates; taxation; and our ongoing relations with our employees and business partners.The Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events orotherwise, except as required by applicable law.Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors Concerning Measured, Indicated and Inferred ResourcesThis presentation uses the terms "measured," "indicated" and "inferred resources. We advise investors that while those terms are recognized and required byCanadian regulations, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineralresources may not form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. United States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of measuredor indicated mineral resources will ever be converted into mineral reserves. United States investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of aninferred mineral resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable.2 </li> <li> 3.
