Caution Regarding Production Decisions and Forward-Looking Statements
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
It should be noted that Altaley declared commercial production at Campo Morado and elected to initiate construction to enter production at Tahuehueto before completing full feasibility studies demonstrating economic and technical viability. Accordingly, readers should be cautioned that Altaley’s production decisions were made without full feasibility studies of established reserves at Campo Morado and pre-feasibility level reserves at Tahuehueto, so there is risk and increased uncertainty about the future economic results of the Campo Morado Mine and Tahuehueto Mine where reserves are established at the pre-feasibility confidence level and therefore a higher technical risk of failure than would be the case if full feasibility studies were made and used to make production decisions. Altaley has completed a preliminary economic assessment (“PEA”) mining study at the Campo Morado mine and a pre-feasibility study (“PFS”) at the Tahuehueto mine which provides a conceptual mine plan life and preliminary economic analysis based on previously identified ore resources (see press releases dated November 8, 2017, April 4, 2018 and April 25, 2022).
