While such statements and information reflect the current view of the Company, they are based on numerous assumptions, including among others, that the Company will obtain the requisite approvals required to execute the amending agreements and issue the common shares as set out therein and the proposed extensions to the August Warrants and the October Warrants will receive the requisite TSXV approval.

These fluctuations may adversely affect the price of the Company's securities, regardless of its operating performance, which may affect the willingness of Teuton or Mr. Mill to proceed with the amending agreements.
