Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements


All statements, other than statements of historical fact, contained in this press release constitute “forward-looking information” and “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of certain securities laws and are based on expectations and projections as of the date of this press release. Forward-looking statements contained in this press release include, without limitation, those related to (i) the Meeting to be held on July 9, 2024; (ii) the approval of the Arrangement by at least two-thirds of the votes cast by Reunion Gold Shareholders and Reunion Gold Voting Security Holders; (iii) the Arrangement to close in July 2024; (iv) the state of things immediately following the completion of the Arrangement, notably the ownership of New GMIN by Reunion Gold Shareholders and GMIN Shareholders, respectively; (v) the listing of the Spinco Shares on the TSXV; and (vi) more generally, the section entitled “About Reunion Gold Corporation”.


Forward-looking statements are based on expectations, estimates and projections as of the time of this press release. Forward-looking statements are necessarily based upon a number of estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by the Company as of the time of such statements, are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. These estimates and assumptions may prove to be incorrect. Such assumptions include, without limitation, those underlying the statements in the “About Reunion Gold Corporation” section.


Many of these uncertainties and contingencies can directly or indirectly affect, and could cause, actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements. There can be no assurance that, notably but without limitation, the Company will (i) bring the Oko West Project into commercial production within budget; or (ii) grow into the next intermediate producer, as future events could differ materially from what is currently anticipated by the Company. There can neither be any assurance that (i) the Reunion Gold Voting Securityholders will vote in favor of the Arrangement; (ii) the Arrangement will close; and (iii) the outcome of the Arrangement will be as set out in this press release, as future events could differ materially from what is currently anticipated by the Company.


By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and risks exist that estimates, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved or that assumptions do not reflect future experience. Forward-looking statements are provided for the purpose of providing information about management’s expectations and plans relating to the future. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements as a number of important risk factors and future events could cause the actual outcomes to differ materially from the beliefs, plans, objectives, expectations, anticipations, estimates, assumptions and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements. All of the forward-looking statements made in this press release are qualified by these cautionary statements and those made in the Company’s other filings with the securities regulators of Canada including, but not limited to, the cautionary statements made in the relevant sections of the Company’s (i) Annual Information Form dated April 25, 2024, for the financial year ended December 31, 2023, and (ii) Management’s Discussion & Analysis for the financial year ended December 31, 2023. The Company cautions that the foregoing list of factors that may affect future results is not exhaustive, and new, unforeseeable risks may arise from time to time. The Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements or to explain any material difference between subsequent actual events and such forward-looking statements, except to the extent required by applicable law.
