    Forward-Looking Statements

    This document may contain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning
of Canadian securities legislation and the United States Private Securities
Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are made as of
the date of this document and Capstone Mining Corp. (hereinafter referred to
as the "Company") do not intend, and do not assume any obligation, to update
these forward-looking statements.
    Forward-looking statements relate to future events or future performance
and reflect management of the Company's expectations or beliefs regarding
future events and include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to
the estimation of mineral reserves and resources, the realization of mineral
reserve estimates, the timing and amount of estimated future production, costs
of production, capital expenditures, success of mining operations,
environmental risks, unanticipated reclamation expenses, title disputes or
claims and limitations on insurance coverage. In certain cases,
forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as
"plans", "expects" or "does not expect", "is expected", "budget", "scheduled",
"estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate",
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 terms or
comparable terminology. By their very nature forward-looking statements
involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may
cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be
materially different from any future results, performance or achievements
expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such factors include,
among others, risks related to actual results of current exploration
activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined;
future prices of resources; possible variations in ore reserves, grade or
recovery rates; accidents, labour disputes and other risks of the mining
industry; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the
completion of development or construction activities; as well as those factors
detailed from time to time in the Company's interim and annual financial
statements and management's discussion and analysis of those statements, all
of which are filed and available for review on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could
cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those
described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause
actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended.
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 anticipated in such statements.
    Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward looking
statements.
