Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
Statements made on this website regarding matters which are not historical facts are “forward looking statements” within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and Canadian securities legislation. Forward-looking information can generally be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “anticipates” or “does not anticipate”, “forecasts”, “plans”, “expects” or “does not expect”, “estimates”, “intends”, or “believes”, or variations of such words that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will be taken”, “occur” or “be achieved”. Forward-looking information is based on reasonable assumptions that have been made by the Company as of the date of such information. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to the following: reasonability of economic assumptions underlying resource estimates and PEAs for the Company’s projects; changes in interpretations of geological, geostatistical, metallurgical, mining or processing information and interpretations of the information resulting from future exploration, analysis or mining and processing experience; new information from drilling programs or other exploration or analysis; unexpected variations in mineral grades, types and metallurgy; fluctuations in silver and gold metal prices; failure of mined material or veins mined to meet expectations; increases in costs and declines in general economic conditions and continued excessive inflation in Argentina; fluctuations in exchange rates and changes in political conditions, in tax, royalty, environmental and other laws in Mexico and Argentina; financial market conditions and the availability of external financing, if required. For a more detailed discussion of such risks and uncertainties, see the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as the Company’s other recent SEC filings. Forward-looking information is provided as of the date of this website and the Company does not intend, and does not assume any obligation, to update this forward-looking information, except as required by securities law. Investors should not assume that any lack of update to a previously issued “forward-looking statement” constitutes a reaffirmation of that statement. Continued reliance on “forward-looking statements” is at investors' own risk.
Although Golden Minerals Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions or results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause actions or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such information will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such information.
Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors Regarding Estimates of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources:
Certain terms appearing on our website, such as “measured”, “indicated” and “inferred” resources, are defined in Canadian National Instrument 43-101; however, these terms are not recognized under SEC Industry Guide 7. The SEC normally permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute SEC Industry Guide 7 compliance “reserves” as in-place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures. US investors are cautioned not to assume that any or all of measured, indicated, inferred or potential resources are economically or legally mineable or that these resources will ever be converted into Guide 7 reserves. “Inferred mineral resources” have a high degree of uncertainty as to their existence and it cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. U.S. investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in our Form 10-K and other SEC filings. You can review and obtain copies of these filings from the SEC’s website at http:www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml.
