The Primero Site, its organization and design, and all information, images, artwork, text, video, audio, pictures and other materials on the Primero Site are protected by copyright and other proprietary rights of Canada and other countries and are owned, controlled, and/or licensed by Primero. In particular, we own a copyright in the Primero Site as a collective work and/or compilation, and in the selection, coordination and arrangement of the information and materials available on the Primero Site. Nothing contained on the Primero Site should be considered as granting, by implication, estoppel, custom, usage or otherwise, any licence or right to use any trademarks, logos, or other names, including, but not limited to, those identifying Primero or its respective products and services displayed on the Primero Site, without the express written consent of Primero or such third party that may own such trademarks, logos and other names displayed on the Primero Site. Any user, who, without authorization, re-transmits, copies or modifies any trademarks may violate federal or common law trade mark, copyright law and/or laws pertaining to privacy or publicity rights, or other laws or regulations, and may be subject to legal action.
Certain information in the Primero Site contains “forward-looking statements” or “forward looking information” within the meaning of applicable securities legislation. In certain cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “believe”, “intend”, “may”, “will”, “should”, “plans”, “anticipates”, “believes”, “potential”, “intends”, “expects” and other similar expressions. Forward looking statements reflect our current expectations and assumptions, and are subject to a number of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any anticipated future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Forward looking statements, particularly as they relate to the actual results of exploration activities, actual results of reclamation activities, the estimation or realization of Mineral Reserves and Resources, the timing and amount of estimated future production, capital expenditures, costs and timing of the development of new mineral deposits, requirements for additional capital, future prices of precious and base metals, possible variations in ore grade or recovery rates, failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated, accidents, labour disputes, road blocks and other risks of the mining industry, delays in obtaining governmental approvals, permits or financing or in the completion of development or construction activities, currency fluctuations, title disputes or claims limitations on insurance coverage and the timing and possible outcome of pending litigation and the timing or magnitude of such events are inherently risky and uncertain.
Key assumptions upon which the Company’s forward-looking statements are based include the following:
- The prices for gold and, to a lesser extent, silver will not fall significantly;
- The assumptions in the financial analysis in the NI 43-101 technical report dated June 1, 2010 for the San Dimas mines are correct;
- The Company‘s ability to secure new financing to continue its exploration, development and operational activities;
- There being no significant adverse changes in currency exchange rates;
- There being no significant changes in the ability of the Company to comply with environmental, safety and other regulatory requirements;
- The Company‘s ability to obtain regulatory approvals (including licenses and permits) in a timely manner;
- The absence of any material adverse effects arising as a result of political instability, terrorism, sabotage, natural disasters, equipment failures or adverse changes in government legislation or the socio-economic conditions in the surrounding area to the Company’s operations;
- The Company’s ability to achieve its growth strategy and
- The Company’s operating costs will not increase significantly.
These assumptions should be considered carefully by users. Users are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements or the assumptions on which the Company’s forward-looking statements are based. Users are advised to review and consider the risk factors identified in the information in the Primero Site, as well as the risk factors identified under the heading “Risk Factors” in the Company’s 2009 annual information form and in the Company’s short form prospectus dated July 9, 2010, both of which are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com, for a discussion of the factors that could cause the Company’s actual results, performance and achievements to be materially different from any anticipated future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Users are further cautioned that the foregoing list of assumptions is not exhaustive. Although the Company believes that the assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are made are reasonable, based on the information available to the Company on the date such statements were made, no assurances can be given as to whether these assumptions will prove to be correct. Accordingly, users should not place undue reliance on forward-looking information.
The forward-looking statements contained in the information in the Primero Site are made as of the date indicated in that information and, accordingly, are subject to change after such date. We do not undertake to update any forward-looking information, except as, and to the extent, required by applicable securities laws. The forward-looking statements contained in the Primero Site are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.
CAUTIONARY NOTE TO UNITED STATES INVESTORS
The Primero Site contains mineral reserve estimates that have been calculated in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”), as required by Canadian securities regulatory authorities. For United States reporting purposes, United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Industry Guide 7 (under the United States Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended), as interpreted by Staff of the SEC, applies different standards in order to classify mineralization as a reserve. As a result, the definitions of proven and probable reserves used in NI 43-101 differ from the definitions in the SEC Industry Guide 7. Under SEC standards, mineralization may not be classified as a “reserve” unless the determination has been made that the mineralization could be economically and legally produced or extracted at the time the reserve determination is made. Among other things, all necessary permits would be required to be in hand or issued imminently in order to classify mineralized material as reserves under the SEC standards. Accordingly, mineral reserve estimates contained in the Primero Site may not qualify as “reserves” under SEC standards. In addition, the Primero Site uses the terms “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources” to comply with the reporting standards in Canada. We advise United States investors that while those terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, the SEC does not recognize them. United States investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into mineral reserves. These terms have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. Further, “inferred resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to whether they can be mined legally or economically. Therefore, United States investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of the inferred resources exist. In accordance with Canadian rules, estimates of “inferred mineral resources” cannot form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Primero, and its respective directors, officers, employees, consultants and agents from and against all claims, liability, and expenses, including all legal fees and costs, arising out of your breach of any provision of these terms and conditions or, any applicable law or proprietary or privacy right in connection therewith. Primero reserves the right, in its sole discretion and at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defence and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you. You will co-operate as fully as reasonably required in the defence of any claim.
