This website uses the terms “Mineral Resource”, “Measured Mineral Resource”, “Indicated Mineral Resource” and “Inferred Mineral Resource”, mining terms as defined in accordance with Turkish Standards under guidelines set out in mining law of Republic of Turkey No.3213. While the use of such terms is recognized and required by Turkish regulators, Securities and Exchange Commission of other countries and their respective regulations may or may not recognize such terms. As such, information contained on this website concerning descriptions of mineralization and resources under Turkish standards may not be comparable to information made public by foreign companies subject to reporting and disclosure requirements. An “Inferred Mineral Resource” has a great amount of uncertainty as to its existence and as to its economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an “Inferred Mineral Resource” will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Turkish legislation, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may not form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. Readers are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of Measured or Indicated Resources will ever be converted into Mineral Reserves.
