Disclaimer/Forward Looking Statements
This presentation contains “forward-looking information”, within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation. Forward-looking information contained in forward-looking statements relate to, among other things, the objectives, goals, strategies, beliefs, intentions, plans, estimates and outlook of Jaguar Mining Inc. (“Jaguar” or the “Company”). Forward-looking statements can generally be identified by the use of words such as “believe,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “goal,” “will,” “may,” “target,” “potential” and other similar expressions. In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances are forward-looking information. Forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions made by Jaguar in light of its experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors Jaguar believes are appropriate in the circumstances. These estimates and assumptions are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive and other uncertainties and contingencies, many of which, with respect to future events, are subject to change. Although Jaguar believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on such statements. In making the forward-looking statements in this presentation, Jaguar has made several assumptions, including, but not limited to assumptions concerning: production costs; statements with respect to the future price of gold, the estimation of mineral reserves and resources, the realization of mineral reserve estimates, the timing and amount of estimated future production, costs of production, capital expenditures, costs and timing of the development of new deposits, success of exploration activities, permitting time lines, currency exchange rate fluctuations, requirements of additional capital, government regulation of mining operations, environmental risks, costs of closure of various operations and changes to the political stability or government regulation in the country in which Jaguar operates. Actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements contained in this presentation. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these expectations are discussed in greater detail under the heading “Risk Factors” in Jaguar’s annual information form for the year ended December 31, 2015 are available on www.sedar.com. When relying on forward-looking statements to make decisions with respect to Jaguar, carefully consider these risk factors and other uncertainties and potential events. Jaguar undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement, except as required by law. Although Jaguar has carefully prepared and verified the Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserve figures presented herein, such figures are estimates, which are, in part, based on forward-looking information and no assurance can be given that the indicated level of gold will be produced. Estimated Mineral Reserves may have to be recalculated based on actual production experience. Market price fluctuations of gold as well as increased production costs or reduced recovery rates and other factors may render the present Proven and Probable Mineral Reserves unprofitable to develop at a particular site or sites for periods of time.
All Figures are in US dollars unless otherwise stated.
This document provides certain financial measures that do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS. Readers are cautioned to review the below stated footnotes where the Company expanded on its use of Non-IFRS Measures.
- Cash operating costs and cash operating cost per ounce are non-IFRS measures. In the gold mining industry, cash operating costs and cash operating costs per ounce are common performance measures but do not have any standardized meaning. Cash operating costs are derived from amounts included in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income (Loss) and include mine site operating costs such as mining, processing and administration as well as royalty expenses, but exclude depreciation, depletion share-based payment expenses and reclamation costs. Cash operating costs per ounce are based on ounces produced and are calculated by dividing cash operating costs by commercial gold ounces produced; US$ cash operating costs per ounce produced are derived from the cash operating costs per ounce produced translated using the average Brazilian Central Bank R$/US$ exchange rate. The Company discloses cash operating costs and cash operating costs per ounce as it believes those measures provide valuable assistance to investors and analysts in evaluating the Company’s operational performance and ability to generate cash flow. The most directly comparable measure prepared in accordance with IFRS is total production costs. A reconciliation of cash operating costs per ounce to total production costs for the most recent reporting period is set out in the Company’s MD&A filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
- All-in sustaining costs is a non-IFRS measure. This measure is intended to assist readers in evaluating the total costs of producing gold from current operations. While there is no standardized meaning across the industry for this measure, except for non-cash items the Company’s definition conforms to the all-in sustaining costs definition as set out by the World Gold Council in its guidance note dated June 27, 2013. The Company defines all-in sustaining costs as the sum of production costs, sustaining capital (capital required to maintain current operations at existing levels), corporate general and administrative expenses, and in-mine exploration expenses. All-in sustaining costs exclude growth capital, reclamation cost accretion related to current operations, interest and other financing costs and taxes. A reconciliation of all-in sustaining costs to total production costs for the most recent reporting period is set out in the Company’s MD&A filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
