99.1 Press release dated November 21, 2012.
With the exception of historical matters, the matters discussed in the press release include forward-looking statements within the meaning of applicable securities laws 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, current and future exploration and development activities, estimated production schedules and the Companys future cash flows. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from projections or estimates include, among others, metals prices, economic and market conditions, start-up of milling operations and future drilling results, as well as other factors described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, and other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Most of these factors are beyond the Companys ability to predict or control. The Company disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statement made in the press release, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
