This press release refers to net working capital and cash cost per pound, which are not recognized measures under Canadian GAAP. These non-GAAP performance measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by Canadian GAAP and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Management uses these measures internally. The use of these measures enables management to better assess performance trends. Management understands that a number of investors and others who follow the Company's performance assess performance in this way. This data is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with Canadian GAAP.
Qualified Person/Quality Control Procedures
This press release has been reviewed by Steve Davies, P.Eng, Chief Operating Officer of Crowflight, who is a Qualified Person under the National Instrument 43-101 guidelines.
