Reliance on information posted

All information contained in this website is current as at the date of publication and is subject to change without notice. Although all care has been taken in the preparation of information included on this website not all such information may be accurate and up to date in all respects. The website and all information contained in it are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. Materials posted on this site are for information purposes and are provided for convenience purposes only. We have not investigated or verified the information in any information posted on this site and the inclusion of such information does not imply that we endorse it. We make no representation and give no warranty as to the accuracy of the information posted on this site and we expressly disclaim any duty to update or correct such information.

Commentary and other materials posted on our site are not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed. We therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by any visitor to our site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.

Forward-looking statements

Certain information contained on this site, including any information as to our future financial or operating performance, constitutes "forward-looking statements". All statements, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements. The words "believe", "expect", "anticipate", "contemplate", "target", "plan", "intends", "continue", "budget", "estimate", "may", "will", "schedule" and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements are necessarily based upon a number of estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by us, are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. Known and unknown factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Such factors include, but are not limited to: fluctuations in the currency markets; fluctuations in the spot and forward price of gold or certain other commodities (such as silver, copper, diesel fuel and electricity); changes in interest rates or gold lease rates that could impact the mark to market value of outstanding derivative instruments and ongoing payments/receipts under interest rate swaps and variable rate debt obligations; risks arising from holding derivative instruments (such as credit risk, market liquidity risk and mark to market risk); changes in national and local government legislation, taxation, controls, regulations and political or economic developments in countries in which we currently carry, or in the future may carry, on business; business opportunities that may be presented to, or pursued by, us; our ability to successfully integrate acquisitions; operating or technical difficulties in connection with mining or development activities; the speculative nature of gold exploration and development, including the risks of obtaining necessary licenses and permits; diminishing quantities or grades of reserves; adverse changes in our credit rating; and contests over title to properties, particularly title to undeveloped properties. In addition, there are risks and hazards associated with the business of gold exploration, development and mining, including environmental hazards, industrial accidents, unusual or unexpected formations, pressures, cave-ins, flooding and gold bullion losses (and the risk of inadequate insurance, or inability to obtain insurance, to cover these risks).

Many of these uncertainties and contingencies can affect our actual results and could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements made by, or on our behalf. You are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are not profit forecasts or estimates. All of the forward-looking statements contained on this site are qualified by these cautionary statements.

Save as required by applicable law, we expressly disclaim any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, events or otherwise.
