2 2 FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS Forward-Looking Statements This presentation may include certain statements that may be deemed “forward-looking statements." All statements in this presentation or those made by Klondex management or representatives, other than statements of historical facts, including the likelihood that bulk sampling will generate significant revenues and the possible results of future exploration are forward-looking statements. Although the Company 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 the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include unsuccessful exploration results, inability to obtain necessary permits and regulatory approvals, changes in metals prices, currency fluctuations, changes in the availability of funding for mineral exploration, unanticipated changes in key management personnel, unavailability of necessary equipment and contractors, and general economic conditions. Mining is an inherently risky business. There is no guarantee that the Company will be able to carry out their work programs or that the results of those work programs will be successful. Accordingly, the actual results may differ materially from those projected in the forward- looking statements. For more information on the Company and the risks and challenges of their businesses, investors should review the Company filings available at and CAUTIONARY NOTE TO U.S. INVESTOR CONCERNING RESOURCES This presentation uses the terms “Indicated and Inferred” resources as defined in accordance with National Instrument 43-101. While such terms are recognized and required by Canadian Securities laws, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. Under the United States standards, mineralization many not be classified as a “reserve” unless the determination has been made that the mineralization could be economically and legally produced or extracted at the time the reserve calculation is made. “Inferred Resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility and readers are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of the inferred resources exists or is economically mineable.
