FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This website contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Canadian securities legislation and the United States Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 [NTD: reference to be confirmed with US counsel]. Such forward-looking statements concern SCZ's anticipated results and developments in SCZ's operations and financial condition in future periods, planned exploration and development of its properties, plans related to its business and other matters that may occur in the future. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts and are generally, but not always, identified by words such as the following: expects, plans, anticipates, believes, intends, estimates, projects, assumes, potential and similar expressions, and include reference to events or conditions that will, would, may, could or should occur. These statements relate to analyses and other information that are based on expectations of future performance, including silver, gold, lead, zinc and copper production and planned work programs, cash flow forecasts, projected capital and operating costs, metal price assumptions, and other assumptions used in preliminary economic assessments. Statements concerning mineral resource estimates may also constitute forward-looking statements to the extent that they involve estimates of the mineralization that will be encountered if the property is developed. Forward-looking statements are subject to a variety of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which could cause actual events or results to differ from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation: risks related to precious and base metal price fluctuations; risks related to fluctuations in the currency markets (particularly the Mexican peso, Canadian dollar and United States dollar); risks related to the inherently dangerous activity of mining, including conditions or events beyond our control, and operating or technical difficulties in mineral exploration, development and mining activities; uncertainty in SCZ's ability to raise financing and fund the exploration and development of its mineral properties; uncertainty as to actual capital costs, operating costs, production and economic returns, and uncertainty that development activities will result in profitable mining operations; risks related to reserves and mineral resource figures being estimates based on interpretations and assumptions which may result in less mineral production under actual conditions than is currently estimated and to diminishing quantities or grades of mineral reserves as properties are mined; risks related to governmental regulations and obtaining necessary licenses and permits; risks related to the business being subject to environmental laws and regulations which may increase costs of doing business and restrict our operations; risks related to mineral properties being subject to prior unregistered agreements, transfers, or claims and other defects in title; risks relating to inadequate insurance or inability to obtain insurance; risks related to potential litigation; risks related to the global economy; risks related to environmental laws risks related to SCZ's status as a foreign private issuer; risks related to all of SCZ's properties being located in Mexico including political, economic, social and regulatory instability and all country risks related to Mexico. Should one or more of these risks and uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. SCZ's forward-looking statements are based on beliefs, expectations and opinions of management on the date the statements are made. For the reasons set forth above, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. All monetary figures are expressed in United States dollars unless otherwise specified.
