2 CarpathianGold Inc. 2 Forward-Looking Statements Statements made in this presentation may be deemed "forward-looking statements". Forward-looking statements are frequently characterized by words such as plan, expect, project, intend, believe, anticipate, estimate, and other similar words, or statements that certain events or conditions may or will occur. All statements in this release, other than statements of historical facts, that address future exploration drilling, exploration activities and events or development that the Corporation expects, are forward-looking statements. Although the Corporation believes the expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those in forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include market prices, exploitation and exploration successes, continued availability of capital and financing, and general economic, market or business conditions. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated statements. The Corporation undertakes no obligation to update forward-looking statements if circumstances or managements estimates or opinions should change. The reader is cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. This presentation includes resource information that is compliant with National Instrument , unless otherwise specified.
