    Caution Regarding Forward-looking Information

    From time to time, Wescan makes written or oral forward-looking
statements within the meaning of certain securities laws, including the "safe
harbour" provisions of the Ontario Securities Act. Wescan may make such
statements in this MD&A, in other filings with Canadian regulators, in reports
to shareholders or in other communications. These forward-looking statements
include, among others, statements with respect to Wescan's objectives for the
ensuing year, our medium and long-term goals, and strategies to achieve those
objectives and goals, as well as statements with respect to our beliefs,
plans, objectives, expectations, anticipations, estimates and intentions. The

    By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks
and uncertainties, both general and specific, and risks exist that
predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will
not be achieved. We caution readers not to place undue reliance on these
statements as a number of important factors could cause the actual results to
differ materially from the beliefs, plans, objectives, expectations,
anticipations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking
statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, developments in
world gold markets, risks relating to fluctuations in the Canadian dollar and
other currencies relative to the US dollar, changes inexploration, development
or mining plans due to exploration results and changing budget priorities of
Wescan or its joint venture partners; the effects of competition in the
markets in which Wescan operates; the impact of changes in the laws and
regulations regulating mining exploration and development; judicial or
regulatory judgments and legal proceedings; operational and infrastructure
risks and the additional risks described in Wescan's most recently filed
annual and interim MD&A and Wescan's anticipation of and success in managing
the foregoing risks. Wescan cautions that the foregoing list of factors that
may affect future results is not exhaustive. When relying on our
forward-looking statements to make decisions with respect to Wescan, investors
and others should carefully consider the foregoing factors and other
