Cautionary Language Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
Information contained or incorporated by reference on this Site that is not current or historical factual information may constitute forward-looking information or statements within the meaning of applicable securities laws. In some cases, forward-looking information can be identified by the use of terms such as “may”, “will”, “should”, “expect”, “plan”, “anticipate”, “foresee” “appears”, “believe”, “intend”, “estimate”, “predict”, “potential”, “continue”, “objective”, “modeled”, “hope” or other similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts. Forward-looking information may relate to management’s future outlook and anticipated events or results, and may include statements or information regarding plans, timelines and targets for construction, mining, development, production and exploration activities at the Company’s mineral properties, future mining and processing at the mineral properties, projected capital expenditure requirements and the funding thereof, liquidity and working capital requirements and sources, estimated reserves and resources at, and production from, the mineral properties, the number and timing of expected rough diamond sales, the demand for rough diamonds, expected diamond prices and expectations concerning the diamond industry, and expected cost of sales and gross margin trends in the mining segment. Users to this Site are cautioned that actual results are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including risks relating to general economic conditions and mining operations, and could differ materially from the forward-looking information. Forward-looking information is based on certain factors and assumptions regarding, among other things, mining, production, construction and exploration activities at the Company’s mineral properties, and world and US economic conditions. Specifically, in making statements regarding expected diamond prices and expectations concerning the diamond industry, the Company has made assumptions regarding, among other things, continuing recovery of world and US economic conditions and worldwide diamond production levels. Forward-looking information is subject to certain factors, including risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ materially from what we currently expect. These factors include, among other things, the uncertain nature of mining activities, including risks associated with underground construction and mining operations, risks associated with joint venture operations, including risks associated with the inability to control the timing and scope of future capital expenditures, and risks of changes to the mine plan for the mineral properties, risks associated with the remote location of the Company’s mineral properties, risks resulting from the Eurozone financial crisis, risks associated with regulatory requirements, fluctuations in diamond prices and changes in US and world economic conditions, the risk of fluctuations in the Canadian/US dollar exchange rate and cash flow and liquidity risks. Readers/viewers are cautioned not to place undue importance on forward-looking information, which speaks only as of the date of which the forward-looking information is made, and should not rely upon this information as of any other date. Due to assumptions, risks and uncertainties, including the assumptions, risks and uncertainties identified above and elsewhere on this Site, actual events may differ materially from current expectations. The Company uses forward-looking statements because it believes such statements provide useful information with respect to the expected future operations and financial performance of the Company, and cautions readers that the information may not be appropriate for other purposes. While the Company may elect to, it is under no obligation and does not undertake to, update or revise any forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise at any particular time, except as required by law. Additional information concerning factors that may cause actual results to materially differ from those in such forward-looking statements is contained in the Dominion Diamond Corporation’s filings with Canadian and United States securities regulatory authorities and can be found at www.sedar.com and www.sec.gov, respectively. Dominion Diamond Corporation disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors
The Company is organized under the laws of Canada. The mineral reserves and resources described in this Site are estimates and have been prepared in compliance with National Instrument 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators (“NI 43-101”). The definitions of proven and probable reserves used in NI-43-101 differ from the definitions in the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Industry Guide 7. In addition, the terms “mineral resource”, “measured mineral resource”, “indicated mineral resource” and “inferred mineral resource” are defined in and required to be disclosed by NI 43-101; however, these terms are not defined terms under SEC Industry Guide 7, and normally are not permitted to be used in reports and registration statements filed with the SEC. Accordingly, information contained in this Site containing descriptions of the mineral deposits at the Company’s mineral properties may not be comparable to similar information made public by US companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements under the United States federal securities laws and the rules and regulations thereunder. United States readers/investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of measured or indicated mineral resources will ever be converted into mineral reserves. United States readers/investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable. U.S. investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in the Company’s most recently filed annual report on Form 40-F. You can review and obtain copies of these filings from the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.
