Forward-Looking Statements: This press release contains “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities laws, including future plans and objectives for the Gibellini Project and the energy storage business. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of American Vanadium to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking information. Forward-looking information includes estimates of mine production rates and mine life, revenues from future mining operations, capital and operating costs, and pay-back period. Factors that may cause actual results to vary include, but are not limited to, changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of vanadium; possible variations in reserves, grade or recovery rates; changes to capital and operating cost estimate, delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of development or construction activities. We may not have adequate capital, financing or cash flow to sustain our business or implement our business plans. Statements contemplating or making assumptions regarding actual or potential sales, market size and demand, prospective business contracts, customer orders or trends in the energy storage market constitute forward looking statements. Our actual results may differ from those indicated in forward looking statements as the energy storage and renewable energy generation business is subject to significant economic, competitive, regulatory, business and industry risks which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. Our business performance may be adversely affected by a general decline in the economy, unavailability of capital or financing for prospective customers to purchase products and services from us, competition, changes in regulations, a decline in the demand for energy storage and other risks. Although American Vanadium has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
