Forward Looking Statements
This news release contains forward-looking statements. Forward looking information in this news release include that the Company will potentially place run-of-mine titaniferous iron ore with steel industry consumers. There can be no certainty regarding the ability of the Company to achieve these results. Factors which may delay or prevent these results from coming to fruition include our inability to raise sufficient financing, weather and access impediments; inability of consultants to complete the exploration programs, and that results may be substantially different than expected. As well, results may differ as a result of geological data resulting in changed plans for exploration, the Company's potential inability to contract equipment and labor or finance its plans, current economic conditions and the state of mineral exploration and mineral prices in general. Even if results on the property are positive, the mineralization may not be sufficiently economic for commercialization. As a result, readers are advised not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements or information. The Company does not undertake any obligation to release publicly revisions to any "forward-looking statement," to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this news release, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except as is required under applicable securities laws. Readers should also refer to the risk factors of junior mining exploration companies as disclosed on EDGAR to understand the many risks facing our company.
