Cautionary Note to United States Investors - The information contained
herein
and incorporated by reference herein has been prepared in accordance
with the
requirements of Canadian securities laws, which differ from the
requirements of
United States securities laws. In particular, the term "resource"
does not
equate to the term "reserve". The Securities Exchange Commission's (the
"SEC")
disclosure standards normally do not permit the inclusion of
information
concerning "measured mineral resources", "indicated mineral
resources" or
"inferred mineral resources" or other descriptions of the
amount of
mineralization in mineral deposits that do not constitute "reserves" by
U.S.
standards, unless such information is required to be disclosed by the law
of the
Company's jurisdiction of incorporation or of a jurisdiction in
which its
securities are traded. U.S. investors should also understand that
"inferred
mineral resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their
existence and
great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility.
Disclosure of
"contained ounces" is permitted disclosure under Canadian regulations;
however,
the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that
does not
constitute "reserves" by SEC standards as in place tonnage and grade
without
reference to unit measures.
