This news release contains “forward‐looking statements” within the meaning of Canadian securities legislation. Forward‐looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to the expected use of proceeds of the FT Unit private placement and NFT Unit private placement, and tax treatment of renunciation of the flow-through expenditures. Such statements and information are based on numerous assumptions regarding present and future business strategies and the environment in which Pacific Bay will operate in the future, including the tax treatment and timing of renunciation of the flow-through expenditures. Certain important factors that could cause actual results, performances or achievements to differ materially from those in the forward‐looking statements include, amongst others, the global economic climate, dilution, share price volatility and competition. Although Pacific Bay 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. Pacific Bay does not undertake to update any forward‐looking statements, except in accordance with applicable securities laws.
