This presentation includes certain “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this MD&A that address activities, events, or developments that the Company expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future, including such things as future business strategy, competitive strengths, goals, expansion and growth of the Company’s business, operations, plans and other such matters are forward-looking information. When used in this presentation, the words “estimate”, “plan”, “anticipate”, “expect”, “intend”, “believe” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking information. This information involves known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking information. Examples of such forward-looking information include statements pertaining to, without limitation, the future price of gold and silver, the estimation of the mineral reserves and resources, the realization of mineral reserve and resource estimates, the timing and amount of estimated future production at the El Castillo mining complex and La Colorada mine, costs of production (including cash cost per ounce of gold sold, see “Non-IFRS Measures” section), expected capital expenditures, costs and timing of development of new deposits, success of exploration activities, permitting requirements, currency fluctuations, the ability to take advantage of forward sales agreements profitably, the ability to recover property potentially impaired by third party insolvency proceedings, requirements for additional capital, government regulation of mining operations, environmental risks and hazards, title disputes or claims and limitations on insurance coverage.

Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated, or intended. There can be no assurance that such information will prove to be accurate as actual results may differ materially from those anticipated. Many factors are beyond the Company’s ability to predict or control. Readers of this presentation are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking information due to its inherent uncertainty. Argonaut disclaims any intent or obligation to update any forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or results or otherwise, except as and when required by applicable securities laws. This forward-looking information should not be relied upon as representing management’s views as of any date subsequent to the date of this presentation.
