Forward-looking statements are often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as "anticipate", "plan", "intend", "estimate", "potential", "could", "ongoing", "prospective", "expected" and similar words suggesting future outcomes. By their nature, forward-looking statements are based on current expectations regarding future events that involve a number of assumptions, known and unknown risks, and uncertainties. Actual results, performance or achievements of Sonoro, or the industry, may vary materially from what is expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of our future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other important factors that could cause our actual performance to be materially different from those we project. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: (1) risks associated with obtaining, maintaining and the timing of receipt of regulatory approvals, permits, and licenses; (2) uncertainties related to financing of Sonoro's exploration activities and continued operations through access to capital markets; (3) the risk of volatile global economic conditions; (4) continued political stability; (5) continued support from the local communities, (6) operational risks in development, exploration and production delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures; (7) the uncertainty of resource estimates, geological interpretations, estimates and projections in relation to production, costs and expenses, and health, safety and environmental risks; (8) the continued ability to obtain qualified staff and equipment in a timely and cost efficient manner; (9) the risk of commodity price and foreign exchange rate fluctuations; and (10) risks associated with the implementation of new technology.

Given these uncertainties, you should not rely on forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements also represent our estimates and assumptions only as of the date that they initially were made. We expressly disclaim a duty to provide updates to any forward-looking statements, and the estimates and assumptions associated with them, to reflect events or circumstances or changes in expectations or the occurrence of anticipated events after the date they initially were made, except and to the extend required by applicable law.
