Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Information
Certain statements within this website are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of certain securities laws, including the Securities Act (Ontario). When used on this website such statements may use such words as “anticipate”, “may”, “will”, “expect”, “believe”, “plan”, “forecast”, “budget”, “estimate”, “projection” and other similar terminology. These statements reflect management’s expectations, estimates and projections as of the date of such forward-looking statements regarding Orezone’s future operational or financial performance and should not be read as guarantees of future performance or results. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, references to: timing of the receipt of governmental approvals and/or acceptances; targets, estimates and assumptions in respect of gold production and prices; amount and type of future capital expenditures and capital resources; mineral reserves and mineral resources and expected changes in mineral reserves and mineral resources; anticipated grades; recovery rates; future financial or operating performance; costs and timing of the development of new deposits; costs, timing and location of future drilling; earning of future interests in various permits; production decisions; operating expenditures; costs and timing of future exploration; and environmental and reclamation expenses.
In particular, forward-looking statements on this website include, among others: information regarding the Company’s plans with respect to the Company’s direct exploration expenditures on its properties in 2010; the expansion of the resource base on the projects; the results of 2010 exploration activities; the results and the projected schedule of the Bomboré project. There can be no assurance that future required regulatory approvals will be obtained or that anticipated transactions or proposed work programs will be completed satisfactorily. Such forward-looking statements are based on a number of material factors and assumptions, including that contracted parties provide goods and/or services on the agreed timeframes, that equipment necessary for exploration activities is available as scheduled and does not incur unforeseen breakdowns, that no labour shortages or delays are incurred and that no unusual geological or technical problems occur.
All references to mineral reserves and resources contained on this website are determined in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”). Actual recoveries of mineral products may differ from mineral reserves and resources as reported due to inherent uncertainties in acceptable estimating techniques. In particular, “indicated” and “inferred” mineral 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 “indicated” or “inferred” mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category of resource. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of the mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into proven or probable mineral reserves.
Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that 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. These risks include, but are not limited to, risks related to changes in, and volatility of, the price of gold; risks associated with operating in foreign jurisdictions; the speculative nature of gold exploration and development projects; permitting risks; risks relating to potential changes to governmental regulation; risks associated with the accuracy of mineral resource and reserve estimates; risks relating to the fact that the Company’s reserves may not be replaced; risks associated with the future profitability of the Company; risks related to the fact that the Company has a history of losses and expects to incur losses for the foreseeable future; risks related to the reliance on the Company’s management team and outside contractors; risks related to drill shortages; risks associated with sample backlogs at assay laboratory facilities; risks related to the Company’s ability to finance the development of its mineral properties; risk relating to misrepresentations; uncertainties related to title to the Company’s mineral properties; risks relating to health concerns; environmental risks; operational risks and hazards inherent in the mining industry; risks associated with the potential inability to maintain available infrastructure; risks related to the potential unavailability of insurance to cover certain
risks; risks related to increased competition in the mining industry; risks related to currency fluctuations; risks related to the fact the Company does not intend to pay dividends in the foreseeable future; risks that shareholders’ interest in the Company may be diluted in the future; factors that have historically made the Company’s share price volatile; investors outside of Canada may have difficulty bringing actions and enforcing judgments against the Company, its directors, its executive officers; and risks related to differences in U.S. and Canadian practices for reporting mineral resources. This list is not exhaustive of the factors that may affect any of the Company’s forward-looking statements. See the “Risk Factors” section and the cautionary statements contained in the Company’s most recently filed Annual Information Form available at www.sedar.com. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause results, performance or achievements not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, and accordingly readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements contained on this website are made as of the date hereof and the Company assumes no obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements to reflect new events or circumstances except as required by applicable law. You are cautioned against placing undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
Cautionary Note to United States Investors
Content published on this website has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of securities laws in effect in Canada, which differ from the requirements of securities laws in effect in the United States. Without limiting the foregoing, the disclosure published on this website uses terms that comply with reporting standards in Canada and certain estimates are made in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”). NI 43-101 is a rule developed by the Canadian Securities Administrators that establishes standards for all public disclosure an issuer makes of scientific and technical information concerning mineral projects. Unless otherwise indicated, all mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates reported on this website have been prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum Classification System. These standards differ significantly from the requirements of the Securities & Exchange Commission of the United States (the “SEC”) and resource information contained herein and incorporated by reference herein may not be comparable to similar information disclosed by U.S. companies. For example, the Company uses the terms “probable mineral reserves”, “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources” in publications to comply with the reporting standards in Canada. Investors are advised that while those terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, the SEC does not recognize them. Under United States standards, mineralization may not be classified as a “reserve” unless the determination has been made that the mineralization could be economically and legally produced or extracted at the time the reserve determination is made. United States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of measured or indicated resources will ever be converted into reserves. These terms have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. In accordance with Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources cannot form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of measured mineral resources, indicated mineral resources, or inferred mineral resources will ever be upgraded to a higher category or that such resources are economically or legally mineable. Disclosure of “contained ounces” is permitted disclosure under Canadian regulations; however the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute “reserves” as in place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures. In addition, the definitions of proven and probable reserves used in NI 43-101 differ from the definitions in the SEC Industry Guide 7. Accordingly, information contained within this website containing descriptions of mineral projects may not be comparable to similar information made public by U.S. companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements under the United States federal securities laws and the rules and regulations thereunder.
