Statements made which are not historical facts, such as anticipated
payments, litigation outcome (including settlement negotiations),
production, sales of assets, exploration results and plans, costs, and
prices or sales performance are "forward-looking statements" within the
meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words
such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “intends,” “projects,”
“believes,” “estimates,” “targets,” “anticipates” and similar
expressions are used to identify these forward-looking statements.
Forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties
that could cause actual results to differ materially from those
projected, anticipated, expected or implied. These risks and
uncertainties include, but are not limited to, metals price volatility,
volatility of metals production and costs, environmental and litigation
risks, operating and regulatory risks, project development risks,
political and regulatory risks, labor issues, ability to raise financing
and exploration risks and results. Refer to the company's Form 10-K and
10-Q reports for a more detailed discussion of factors that may impact
expected future results. The company undertakes no obligation and has no
intention of updating forward-looking statements other than as may be
required by law.
