This presentation contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities laws (together, “forward-looking statements”) concerning the Corporation's business plans, including but not limited to anticipated results and developments in the Corporation’s operations in future periods, planned exploration and development of its mineral properties, plans related to its business and other matters that may occur in the future, made as of the date of this presentation.
Forward-looking statements may include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to additional capital requirements to fund further exploration and development work on the Corporation's properties, future remediation and reclamation activities, future mineral exploration, the estimation of mineral reserves and mineral resources, the realization of mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates, future mine construction and development activities, future mine operation and production, the timing of activities, the amount of estimated revenues and expenses, the success of exploration activities, permitting timelines, requirements for additional capital and sources, uses of funds, and the Company’s ability to successfully withstand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Any statements that express or involve discussions with respect to predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions or future events or performance (often, but not always, using words or phrases such as “expects”, “anticipates”, “plans”, “estimates”, “intends”, “strategy”, “goals”, “objectives” or stating that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved, or the negative of any of these terms and similar expressions) are not statements of historical fact and may be “forward-looking statements”.
Forward-looking statements are subject to a variety of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which could cause actual events or results to differ from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such factors include, but are not limited to, risks related to actual results and timing of exploration and development activities; actual results and timing of exploration, development and mining activities; inability of the Corporation to finance the development of its mineral properties; uncertainty of capital costs, operating costs, production and economic returns; actual results and timing of environmental services operations; actual results and timing of remediation and reclamation activities; conclusions of economic evaluations; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of silver, gold, lead, zinc and other commodities; uncertainties relating to the interpretation of drill results, the geology, grade and continuity of the Corporation’s mineral deposits; possible variations in resources, grade or recovery rates; failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; the Corporation’s need to attract and retain qualified management and technical personnel; accidents, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry; First Nation rights and title; continued capitalization and commercial viability; global economic conditions; competition; risks related to governmental regulation, including environmental regulation; delays or inability of the Corporation in obtaining governmental approvals necessary to develop and operate mines on the Corporation’s properties; inability of the Corporation to obtain additional financing needed to fund certain contingent payment obligations on reasonable terms or at all; variations in interest rates and foreign exchange rates; and the impact of COVID-19 and the instability thereof, including disruption or delay of exploration and mining activities. Furthermore, forward-looking statements are statements about the future and are inherently uncertain, and actual achievements of the Corporation or other future events or conditions may differ materially from those reflected in the forward-looking statements due to a variety of risks, uncertainties and other factors, including but not limited to those referred to in this presentation under the heading “Risk Factors” and elsewhere.
Forward-looking statements relate to analyses and other information that are based on forecasts of future results, estimates of amounts not yet determinable and certain assumptions that management believes are reasonable at the time they are made. In making the forward-looking statements included in this presentation, the Corporation has applied several material assumptions, including, but not limited to, the assumption that: (1) additional financing may be needed to fund certain contingent payment obligations to Wheaton; (2) additional financing needed for the capacity related refund under the Amended SPA with Wheaton will be available on reasonable terms; (3) additional financing needed for further exploration and development work on the Corporation's properties will be available on reasonable terms; (4) the proposed development of its mineral projects will be viable operationally and economically and proceed as planned; (5) market fundamentals will result in sustained silver, gold, lead and zinc demand and prices, and such prices will not be materially lower than those estimated by management in preparing the annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020; (6) market fundamentals will result in sustained silver, gold, lead and zinc demand and prices, and such prices will be materially consistent with or more favourable than those anticipated in the PFS; (7) the actual nature, size and grade of its mineral reserves and mineral resources are materially consistent with the mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates reported in the supporting technical reports, including the PFS; (8) labour and other industry services will be available to the Corporation at prices consistent with internal estimates; (9) the continuances of existing and, in certain circumstances, proposed tax and royalty regimes; and (10) that other parties will continue to meet and satisfy their contractual obligations to the Corporation. Statements concerning mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates may also be deemed to constitute forward-looking information to the extent that they involve estimates of the mineralization that will be encountered as the Keno Hill project is developed. Other material factors and assumptions are discussed throughout this presentation and, in particular, under the headings “Critical Accounting Estimates and Judgments” and “Risk Factors”.
The Corporation's forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs, expectations and opinions of management on the date the statements are made and should not be relied on as representing the Corporation's views on any subsequent date. While the Corporation anticipates that subsequent events may cause its views to change, the Corporation specifically disclaims any intention or any obligation to update forward-looking statements if circumstances or management's beliefs, expectations or opinions should change, except as required by applicable law. For the reasons set forth above, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

The material scientific and technical information in respect of Alexco’s Keno Hill Silver District Project in this presentation, unless otherwise indicated, is based upon information contained in the technical report entitled “NI 43-101 Technical Report Prefeasibility Study of the Keno Hill Silver District Project, Yukon Territory, Canada”, as amended February 13, 2020. Readers are encouraged to read the PFS, which is available under the Company's profile on SEDAR, for detailed information concerning the Keno Hill Silver District. All disclosure contained in this presentation regarding the mineral reserves and mineral resource estimates and economic analysis on the property is fully qualified by the full disclosure contained in the PFS.
A production decision which is made without a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability carries additional potential risks which include, but are not limited to, the risk that additional detailed work may be necessary with respect to mine design and mining schedules, metallurgical flow sheets and process plant designs, and the noted inherent risks pertaining to the inclusion of approximately 2% inferred mineral resources in the mine plan.
This presentation has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the securities laws in effect in Canada, which differ from the requirements of United States securities laws. The terms “mineral reserve”, “proven mineral reserve” and “probable mineral reserve” are Canadian mining terms as defined in accordance with NI 43-101 and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (the “CIM”) - CIM Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves, adopted by the CIM Council, as amended. These definitions differ materially from the definitions in SEC Industry Guide 7 (“SEC Industry Guide 7”) under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Under SEC Industry Guide 7 standards, a “final” or “bankable” feasibility study is required to report reserves, the three-year historical average price is used in any reserve or cash flow analysis to designate reserves, and the primary environmental analysis or report must be filed with the appropriate governmental authority. In addition, the terms “mineral resource”, “measured mineral resource”, “indicated mineral resource” and “inferred mineral resource” are defined in and required to be disclosed by NI 43-101; however, these terms are not defined terms under SEC Industry Guide 7 and are normally not permitted to be used in reports and registration statements filed with the SEC. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of a mineral deposit in these categories will ever be converted into SEC Industry Guide 7 reserves. Under Canadian rules, inferred mineral resources can only be used in economic studies as provided under NI 43-101. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource is economically or legally mineable. An “inferred mineral resource” is that part of a mineral resource for which quantity and grade or quality are estimated on the basis or limited geological evidence and sampling. Geological evidence is sufficient to imply but not verify geological and grade or quality continuity. And inferred mineral resource has a lower level of confidence than that applying to an indicated mineral resource and must not be converted to a mineral reserve. It is reasonably expected that the majority of inferred mineral resources could be upgraded to indicated mineral resources with continued exploration. Disclosure of “contained ounces” in a resource is permitted disclosure under Canadian regulations; however, the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute “reserves” by SEC Industry Guide 7 standards as in place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures. Accordingly, information contained in this presentation regarding descriptions of the Corporation’s mineral deposits may not be comparable to similar information made public by U.S. companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements under the United States federal securities laws and the rules and regulations thereunder, including SEC Industry Guide 7.
