Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Site contains “forward-looking statements”, within the meaning of the applicable Canadian securities legislation and within the meaning of the US Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, concerning the business, operations and financial performance and condition of NORTH AMERICAN. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to the future price of copper, nickel, platinum and palladium and other minerals and metals, the estimation of mineral resources and reserves, the realization of mineral reserve estimates, the timing and amount of estimated future production, costs of production, capital expenditures, costs and timing of the development of new deposits, success of exploration activities, permitting time lines, hedging practices, currency exchange rate fluctuations, requirements for additional capital, government regulation of mining operations, environmental risks, unanticipated reclamation expenses, timing and possible outcome of pending litigation, title disputes or claims and limitations on insurance coverage. Generally, these forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “plans”, “expects” or “does not expect”, “is expected”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates” or “does not anticipate”, “believes” or variations of such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will be taken”, “occur” or “be achieved”.
Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements of NORTH AMERICAN to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements, including but not limited to: risks related to the integration of acquisitions; risks related to international operations; risks related to joint venture operations; actual results of current exploration activities; actual results of current reclamation activities; conclusions of economic evaluations; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of nickel, platinum, palladium and other minerals and metals; possible variations in ore reserves, grade or recovery rates; failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; accidents, labour disputes; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of development or construction activities and other risks of the mining industry.
Although NORTH AMERICAN has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. NORTH AMERICAN disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements that are included in its documents including information contained on this Site whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, save and except in as may be required by applicable law.
Disclosure of Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources
Readers are advised that National Instrument 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators requires that each category of mineral resources and mineral reserves be reported separately.
Disclosure of Historic Estimates, Resources and Production
A PRODUCTION DECISION HAS NOT BEEN MADE AT THIS TIME ON ANY NORTH AMERICAN PROPERTIES. NORTH AMERICAN has not conducted or completed any mining studies such as feasibility, prefeasibility or a preliminary economic assessment on any of its mining properties. While NORTH AMERICAN believes that the exploration work, QA/QC and production reconciliation carried out by past mining owners and operators was of high quality, a Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to classify any historical estimates as current mineral resources or reserves, NORTH AMERICAN is not treating any historical estimates as current mineral resources, and the historical estimates should not be relied upon. The information regarding historical production statistics including but not limited to reports of tonnage, grade, recoveries, and metallurgical testing results, was obtained from historic data. Although NORTH AMERICAN has not verified this data, management believes it is from credible sources. John C. Archibald P.Geo. is the acting independent qualified person as defined by Canadian National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Archibald has supervised the preparation of the scientific and technical information that forms the basis for the mineral property disclosures in this website and has approved the disclosure herein.
Cautionary Note to United States Investors Concerning Estimates of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources
U.S. investors should take note that the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) permits U.S. mining companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only those mineral deposits that a company can economically and legally extract or produce. Being a Canadian company, we use certain terms on this Site such as “Measured”, “Indicated” and “Inferred” Resources. United States investors are advised that while such terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, the SEC does not recognize them. “Inferred Mineral Resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and 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. Under Canadian rules, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may not form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. United States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of Measured or Indicated Mineral Resources will ever be converted into Mineral Reserves. United States investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an Inferred Mineral Resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable.
