Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward looking statements include, but are not limited to, the Company's inability to secure sufficient subscriptions from investors to complete the above-described private placement, variations in the nature, quality and quantity of any mineral deposits that may be located, the Company's inability to obtain any necessary permits, consents or authorizations required for its planned activities, and the Company's inability to raise the necessary capital or to be fully able to implement its business strategies.
