Do Not Rely on Forward-Looking Information
Some of the statements on our web site, including those relating to Turquoise Hill Resources’ business and project plans, are considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, specifically the Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements give our expectations or forecasts of future events. Sometimes these statements will use words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “outlook,” “forecast,” and other similar words. These statements are not guarantees of our future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other important factors that could cause our actual performance to be materially different from those we project.
Given these uncertainties, you should not rely on forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements also represent our estimates and assumptions only as of the date that they initially were made. We expressly disclaim a duty to provide updates to any forward-looking statements, and the estimates and assumptions associated with them, to reflect events or circumstances or changes in expectations or the occurrence of anticipated events after the date they initially were made, except and to the extent required by applicable law.
Relevant factors set forth in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission that could affect the forward - looking statements include: the possibility that commercial-scale development of the Oyu Tolgoi copper/gold deposit and the Nariin Shukhait coal deposit in Mongolia may not be achieved, or that such development may experience technological and mechanical problems, the impact on project economics of operating conditions (including mineral prices), competition, intellectual property risks, construction risks, that Turquoise Hill Resources’ mineral exploration and development activities will experience technological and mechanical problems, the risks associated with investments and operations in foreign jurisdictions, the ability to implement corporate strategies and the ability to obtain financing. These are only some of the numerous factors which may affect the forward-looking statements contained on our web site.
