    Certain statements contained in this news release using the terms "may",
"expects to", "projects", "estimates", "plans", and other terms denoting
future possibilities, are forward-looking statements in respect to various
issues including upcoming events based upon current expectations which involve
risks and uncertainties that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ
materially. The future conduct of the Company's business and the feasibility
of its mineral exploration properties are dependent upon a number of factors
and there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to conduct its
operations as contemplate and the accuracy of these statements cannot be
guaranteed as they are subject to a variety of risks that are beyond our
ability to predict or control and which may cause actual results to differ

include, but are not limited to, the risks described in the above press
release; those risks set out in the company's disclosure documents and its
annual, quarterly and current reports; the fact that exploration activities
seldom result in the discovery of a commercially viable mineral resource and
are also significant amounts of capital to undertake and the other risks
associated with start-up mineral exploration operations with insufficient
liquidity, and no historical profitability. The Company disclaims any
obligation to revise any forward looking statements as a result of information
received after the fact or regarding future events.
