The Company assumes no responsibility for verification of the information in these materials, and no representation or warranty is made as to the accuracy or completeness of such information. The Company assumes no obligation to correct or update these materials. These materials do not contain all information that may be required to evaluate, and do not constitute a recommendation with respect to, any transaction or matter. Any recipient of these materials should conduct its own independent analysis of the matters referred to herein. This presentation may contain forward-looking information within the meaning of applicable securities laws. All information and statements other than statements of current or historical facts contained in this presentation are forward-looking information. Such statements and information may be identified by words such as "about", "approximately", "may", "believes", "expects", "will", "intends", "should", "plans", "predicts", "potential", "projects", "anticipates", "estimates", "continues" or similar words or the negative thereof or other comparable terminology. Forward- looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties concerning the specific factors disclosed here and elsewhere in the Company's periodic filings with Canadian securities regulators. Information provided in this presentation is necessarily summarized and may not contain all available material information. Forward- looking statements include, without limitation, statements regarding the expected timing of the development and potential advancement to production of the Company's mine-permitted projects in Niger and Zambia as well as advancement of its exploration projects in Mali, the expected continued support from major shareholders of the Company, the support of the mining industry in general by the local governments in the jurisdictions where the Company's projects are located, and the expected increase in demand for uranium coupled with growing decline in uranium supply, and related expectation for a uranium price increase. Forward-looking statements are based on a number of assumptions and estimates that, while considered reasonable by management based on the business and markets in which the Company operates, are inherently subject to significant operational, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. Assumptions upon which forward looking statements are based include an impending depletion of uranium inventories giving rise to increased demand and an increased uranium price, and the long-term fundamentals of the uranium market remaining strong thereafter; the Company's various project resulting in a pipeline of project development; the practice of engaging locals from the jurisdictions where the Company's projects are located resulting in risk mitigation of the subject projects; the Company's major shareholders remaining as shareholders of the Company; the continuation of support of the mining industry in general and the Company's projects in particular by the local governments in the jurisdictions where the Company's projects are located; the Company's ability to optimize its projects so as make them attractive to new investors; the Company's ability to secure the requisite financing; and generally, that the price of uranium will remain sufficiently high and the costs of advancing the Company's projects sufficiently low so as to permit it to implement its business plans in a profitable manner. Important factors that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from the Company's expectations include those related to market fluctuations in prices for uranium; the Company's inability to obtain additional financing, develop its mineral projects or obtain any necessary permits, consents or authorizations required for its activities in the various jurisdictions where the Company operates; the refusal of the Company's partners to support its ongoing operations; as well as the Company's inability to produce minerals from its projects successfully or profitably. In addition, the factors described or referred to in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the MD&A for the Company for the year-ended December 31, 2021, available at should be reviewed in conjunction with the information found in this presentation. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results, performance, or achievements to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements, there can be other factors that cause results, performance or achievements not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such information will prove to be accurate or that management's expectations or estimates of future developments, circumstances or results will materialize. As a result of these risks and uncertainties, the results or events predicted in these forward-looking statements may differ materially from actual results or events. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements in this presentation are made as of the date of this presentation, and the Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise such information, except as required by applicable law.
