2. Cautionary StatementThis presentation may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Canadian securities legislation and the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements relate to future events or the anticipated performance of the Company and reflect managements expectations or beliefs regarding such future events and anticipated performance. In certain cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as plans, expects, is expected, budget, scheduled, estimates, forecasts, intends, anticipates or 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, or the negative of these words or comparable terminology. By their very nature forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual performance of the Company to be materially different from any anticipated performance expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such factors include various risks related to the Companys operations, including, without limitation, fluctuations in spot and forward markets for gold, silver and other metals, fluctuations in currency markets, changes in national and local governments in Mexico and the speculative nature of mineral exploration and development, risks associated with obtaining necessary exploitation and environmental licenses and permits, and the presence of laws that may impose restrictions on mining. A complete list of risk factors are described in the Companys annual information form and will be detailed from time to time in the Companys continuous disclosure, all of which are, or will be available, for review on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.This presentation uses the terms measured resources, indicated resources and inferred resources. The Company advises readers that although these terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations (under National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (NI 43-101), the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. Readers are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted in to reserves. In addition, inferred resources have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and 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 rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, or economic studies, except for a Preliminary Assessment as defined under NI43-101. Investors are cautioned not to assume that part or all of an inferred resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual performance to differ materially from that described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause its performance not to be as anticipated. The Company neither intends nor assumes any obligation to update these forward-looking statements or information to reflect changes in assumptions or circumstances other than required by applicable law. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those currently anticipated. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Unless otherwise indicated, all dollar values herein are in US$.2 3. Management ParticipantsJoseph F.
