2. Some of the statements contained in this presentation are forward-looking statements, such as estimates and statements that describe future plans, objectives or goals, including words to the effect that High Plains expects a stated condition or result to occur. Since forward-looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results relating to among other things, reserves, resources, results of exploration, reclamation and other post-closure costs, capital costs and mine production costs could differ materially from those currently anticipated in such statements by reason of factors such as changes in general economic conditions and conditions in the financial markets, changes in demand and prices for the minerals, litigation, legislative, environmental and other judicial, regulatory, technological and operational difficulties encountered in connection with mining activities, labor relations matters, costs and changing foreign exchange rates. This list is not exhaustive of the factors that may affect any of the forward-looking statements contained in this presentation. These and other factors should be considered carefully and readers should not place undue reliance on such statements. Unless otherwise indicated, all amounts are expressed in Canadian dollars.
