With the exception of historical matters, information discussed in the exhibit includes forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from projections or estimates contained therein. Such forward-looking statements include, among others, statements regarding the completion of certain business transactions. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from projections or estimates include, among others, precious metals prices, economic and market conditions, results of due diligence, regulatory and court approval and decisions of third parties over which the Company has no control, as well as other factors described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010, and other filings with the SEC. Most of these factors are beyond the Company’s ability to predict or control. The Company disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statement made in the press release. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements.


U.S. investors should be aware that US Gold has no “reserves” as defined by Guide 7 adopted by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineralization will ever be confirmed or converted into Guide 7 compliant “reserves.”
