Nevada Gold & Silver Investor Presentation OTC BB: PIED June 2009 Cautionary Statement
The following presentation shall not be deemed to be an offer to sell, or an invitation of an offer to buy, the securities of Piedmont Mining Company, Inc. An offer may only be made by a private placement memorandum and offers will only be made to ‘accredited investors’ as that term is defined in Securities and Exchange Commission Regulation D.
This presentation contains expressions of future expectations, projections and other forward-looking statements. Those statements are based on management’s expectations, projections and beliefs, not historical facts and are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors, which are beyond management and the Company’s control, that could cause the actual results to differ from those contemplated by the statements. These statements are only predictions and should not be construed as statements of material fact. Actual results will vary from the projections, and such variances may be material. Assumptions regarding future revenues are necessarily speculative in nature and should not be relied upon in making an investment decision. When used in this document, the words ‘anticipates’, ‘may’, ‘can’, ‘believes’, ‘expects’, ‘projects’, ‘intends’, ‘likely’, ‘will’, ‘to be’ and similar expressions and other statements that are not historical facts are intended to identify those assertions as forward-looking statements. Management believes that its expectations are based on reasonable assumptions. However, any such statement may be influenced by factors that could cause actual outcomes and results to be materially different from those projected or anticipated.
Forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties. There are factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in any forward-looking statement, many of which are beyond the control of Piedmont, including economic and industry conditions such as the competitive environment, unanticipated operating problems, accidents, gold and silver price declines, changes in political, social or economic circumstances, variances in mineralization grades, labor relations, adverse weather conditions, the risks of mineral exploration, adverse market conditions, the inability to raise sufficient capital to fund exploration, regulatory uncertainties and risks, changes in tax and other laws, the risk of obtaining regulatory approvals and permits. Actual results could differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, any forward-looking statement. There may also be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated. No assurance can be given that any of the events anticipated by the forward-looking statements will occur or what impact they will have on Piedmont’s results and operations. Except as required by law, we are under no obligation to any forward-looking statement, whether written or oral, that may be made as a result of new information or future events.
