Cautionary Note to United States Investors – The informationcontained herein and incorporated by reference herein has beenprepared in accordance with the requirements of Canadian securitieslaws, which differ from the requirements of United States securitieslaws. In particular, the term “resource” does not equate to the term”reserve”. The Securities Exchange Commission’s (the “SEC”)disclosure standards normally do not permit the inclusion ofinformation concerning “measured mineral resources”, “indicatedmineral resources” or “inferred mineral resources” or otherdescriptions of the amount of mineralization in mineral deposits thatdo not constitute “reserves” by SEC standards, unless suchinformation is required to be disclosed by the law of the Company’sjurisdiction of incorporation or of a jurisdiction in which itssecurities are traded. U.S. investors should also understand that”inferred mineral resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as totheir existence and great uncertainty as to their economic and legalfeasibility. Disclosure of “contained ounces” is permitted disclosureunder Canadian regulations; however, the SEC normally only permitsissuers to report mineralization that does not constitute “reserves”by SEC standards as in place tonnage and grade without reference tounit measures.
