Forward-looking information includes, but is not limited to, statements related to activities, events or developments that the Company expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future, including, without limitation; statements related to the Company's release of the PEA Technical Report; the economic analysis; the Feasibility Study; the permitting process; environmental assessments; business strategy; objectives and goals; and exploration of the Sevier Lake project. Forward-looking information is often identified by the use of words such as "plans", "planning", "planned", "expects" or "looking forward", "does not expect", "continues", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "potential", "anticipates", "does not anticipate", or "belief", or describes a "goal", or variation of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved. Forward-looking information is based on a number of factors and assumptions made by management and considered reasonable at the time such information is provided. Forward-looking information involves known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, performance, or achievements to be materially different from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking information. The PEA is, by definition, preliminary in nature and should be considered speculative. It is based upon a flow-sheet that may change, which would impact all costs and estimates. Operating Costs for the project were based upon assumptions including energy cost, water cost, labor, and other variables that are likely to change. Capital Costs were based upon a list of equipment thought to be necessary for production. Changes in estimated costs to acquire, construct, install, or operate the equipment may adversely impact project economics. Among other factors, the Company's inability to complete further NI 43-101 resource estimates; the inability to complete the PEA or Feasibility Study; changes to the economic analysis; the failure to obtain necessary permits to explore and develop the Sevier Lake project; environmental issues or delays; inability to successfully complete additional drilling at the Sevier Lake project; factors disclosed in the Company's current Management's Discussion and Analysis; as well as information contained in other public disclosure documents available on SEDAR at may adversely impact the project. Although EPM has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events, or results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause actions, events, or results not to be as anticipated, estimated, or intended. There can be no assurance that forward-looking information will prove to be accurate. The forward-looking information contained herein is presented for the purposes of assisting investors in understanding the Company's plan, objectives, and goals and may not be appropriate for other purposes. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking information. EPM does not undertake to update any forward-looking information, except in accordance with applicable securities laws. SOURCE: EPM Mining Ventures Inc.For further information: Lance D'Ambrosio Chief Executive Officer (801) 485-0223 or Patrick Piette TMX Equicom (416) 815-0700 ext. 267
