Often, but not always, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “plans”, “planning”, “planned”, “expects” or “looking forward”, “does not expect”, “continues”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “budgets”, “intends”, “potential”, “anticipates”, “does not anticipate”, or “belief”, or describes a “goal”, or variation of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved.
Forward-looking information is based on reasonable assumptions that have been made by the Company as at the date of such information and is subject to known and unknown risks, future events, conditions, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information, including but not limited to: the impact of general business and economic conditions; risks related to government and environmental regulation; actual results of current exploration and development activities; conclusions of economic evaluations and changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; possible variations in grade or recovery rates, failure of equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; the failure of contracted parties to perform; labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of exploration; problems inherent to the marketability of base and precious metals; industry conditions, including fluctuations in the price of base and precious metals (including gold, silver, nickel, copper, platinum, palladium and chromite); fluctuations in interest rates; government entities interpreting existing tax legislation or enacting new tax legislation in a way which adversely affects the Company; stock market volatility; competition; the risks disclosed under the heading “Risk Factors” in the Company’s most recently filed Annual Information Form (available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com); and such other factors described or referred to elsewhere on this Site, including unanticipated and/or unusual events. Many of such factors are beyond Noront’s ability to control or predict, as well as those factors disclosed in the Company’s publicly filed documents.
Although Noront has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking information, 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 information will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such information.
All of the forward-looking information given on this Site is qualified by these cautionary statements and users of this Site are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking information due to its inherent uncertainty. Noront disclaims any intent or obligation to update any forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or results or otherwise, except as required by law.
Users of this Site are advised that under NI 43-101, Canadian securities law requires that each category of Mineral Reserve and Mineral Resource be reported separately. Users should consult the Company’s public filings in order to obtain this information in detail. These documents are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com under Noront’s company profile.
As an additional cautionary note to United States (“U.S.”) investors, information regarding mineral reserve and resource estimates on this Site has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Canadian securities laws, which differ in material respects from the requirements of United States (“U.S.”) securities laws applicable to U.S. companies. Noront is required to describe mineral reserves associated with its properties using Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (“CIM”) definitions of “proven” or “probable”, which categories of reserves are recognized by NI 43-101, but which differ from those definitions in the disclosure requirements promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and contained in Industry Guide 7. In addition, Noront is required to describe mineral resources associated with its properties utilizing CIM definitions of “measured”, “indicated” or “inferred”, which categories of resources are recognized by Canadian regulations but are not defined terms under Industry Guide 7 and are generally not permitted to be used in reports and registration statements of U.S. companies filed with the SEC. Accordingly, information on this Site regarding Noront’s mineral properties may not be comparable to similar information disclosed by U.S. companies. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of measured mineral resources or indicated mineral resources will ever be converted into mineral reserves or that all or any part of an inferred resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable. “Inferred resources” have an great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category.
