Certain of the statements and information on this website constitute “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 provincial securities laws. Statements containing forward-looking information express Pan American’s plans, estimates, forecasts, projections, expectations, or beliefs as to future events or results and Generally, forward-looking statements and information can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as believe, estimate, anticipate, expect or does not expect, plan, intend, predict, goal, target, forecast, project, scheduled, potential, and proposed or variations of such words and phrases, or statements that certain actions, events or results may, can, could, would, might or will be taken, occur or be achieved. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements or information. Forward-looking statements or information on this website relate to, among other things: our estimated production of silver, gold and other metals; our forecast cash costs per ounce of silver; our estimated all-in sustaining costs per ounce of silver sold; the price of silver, gold and other metals and assumed foreign exchange rates; the sufficiency of our liquid assets to satisfy our working capital requirements, fund currently planned capital expenditures (including both sustaining and project capital) for existing operations, and to discharge liabilities as they come due; our anticipated operating cash flow and the estimated cost of and availability of funding for working capital requirements and capital replacement, improvement or remediation programs, care and maintenance programs, and for future construction and development projects; our anticipated capital investments; our ability to successfully complete any capital investment programs and projects and the impacts of any such programs and projects; the estimates of expected or anticipated economic returns from a mining project, as reflected in preliminary economic assessments, pre-feasibility, and feasibility studies or other reports prepared in relation to development of projects; the completion and anticipated results of any technical reports or other evaluations; and any anticipated level of financial and operational success; the outcome of the International Labour Organization Convention No.169 consultation process in Guatemala with respect to the Escobal mine, the resolution of other matters ordered by the courts in Guatemala, and our anticipated engagement with local communities, Indigenous Peoples and other stakeholders in Guatemala and in other jurisdictions; our ability to continue with our operations, or to successfully maintain our operations on care and maintenance, should situations such as COVID-19 or other pandemics not be as anticipated, and the impact of COVID-19 or other pandemics could have on our business; our goal to continue to be a responsible company, committed to sustainable development and conducting our activities in an environmentally and socially responsible manner, including the development and implementation of policies and practices in support of these goals; our ability to manage physical and transition risks related to climate change and successfully adapt our business strategy to a low carbon global economy; our ability to achieve any climate-related goals; and that we will be, or will continue to be, the world’s premier silver producer and one of the world’s leading silver mining companies.
These statements reflect our current views with respect to future events and are necessarily based upon a number of assumptions that, while considered reasonable by us, are inherently subject to significant operational, business, economic and regulatory uncertainties and contingencies. These assumptions include: tonnage of ore to be mined and processed; ore grades and recoveries; prices for silver, gold and base metals; capital, decommissioning and reclamation estimates; our mineral reserve and resource estimates and the assumptions upon which they are based; prices for energy inputs, labour, materials, supplies and services (including transportation); no labour-related disruptions at any of our operations: no unplanned delays in or interruptions in scheduled production; all necessary permits, licences and regulatory approvals for our operations are received in a timely manner and can be maintained as required; and our ability to comply with environmental, health and safety laws. The foregoing list of assumptions is not exhaustive.
We caution the reader that forward-looking statements and information involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements or information contained on this website and we. have made assumptions and estimates based on or related to many of these factors. Such factors include, without limitation: fluctuations in silver, gold and base metals prices; fluctuations in prices for energy inputs, labour, materials, supplies and services (including transportation); fluctuations in currency markets (such as the Canadian Dollar, Peruvian Sol, Mexican Peso and Bolivian Boliviano versus the U.S. Dollar); the inability to determine, with certainty, the production of metals or the price to be received before mineral reserves or mineral resources are actually mined; supply chain disruptions; operational risks and hazards inherent with the business of mining (including environmental accidents and hazards, industrial accidents, equipment breakdown, unusual or unexpected geological or structural formations, cave-ins, flooding and severe weather); the effects of climate change, extreme weather events, water scarcity, and seismic events, and the effectiveness of strategies to deal with these issues, including risks and strategies related to the transition to a low-carbon global economy; inherent risks associated with tailings facilities and heap leach operations, including failure or leakages; risks relating to the credit worthiness or financial condition of suppliers, refiners and other parties with whom the company does business; inadequate insurance, or inability to obtain insurance, to cover these risks and hazards; employee relations; relationships with, and claims by, local communities and Indigenous Peoples; laws and regulations governing our operation, exploration and development activities, including international laws and legal norms, such as those relating to Indigenous populations and human rights; our ability to obtain all necessary permits, licenses and regulatory approvals in a timely manner; changes in laws, regulations and government practices in the jurisdictions where we operate, includingenvironmental, export and import laws and regulations; diminishing quantities or grades of mineral reserves as properties are mined; the ability to recruit and retain qualified personnel, and the increased competition in the mining industry for equipment and qualified personnel; the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting; ; and those factors identified under the caption “Risks Related to Pan American’s Business” in Pan American Silver Corp.’s most recent Form 40-F and Annual Information Form filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission and Canadian provincial securities regulatory authorities. Although we have 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, described or intended. Investors are cautioned against undue reliance on forward-looking statements and information. Forward-looking statements and information are designed to help readers understand management’s current views of our near and longer term prospects and may not be appropriate for other purposes. We do not intend, nor do we assume any obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements and information, whether as a result of new information, changes in assumptions, future events or otherwise, except to the extent required by applicable law.
Specific materials on our website containing forward-looking statements or information may contain more specific cautions regarding risks and uncertainties, which you should review.
This website, including the documents and materials posted thereon, have been prepared and disclosed in accordance with the requirements of Canadian securities laws that differ from the requirements of United States securities laws. Unless otherwise indicated, all mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates included in this AIF and the documents incorporated by reference herein have been disclosed in accordance with NI 43-101 and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum – Definition Standards adopted by the CIM Council. NI 43-101 is an instrument developed by the Canadian Securities Administrators that establishes standards for all public disclosure an issuer makes of scientific and technical information concerning mineral projects.
Canadian public disclosure standards, including NI 43-101, differ significantly from the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), and information with respect to mineralization and mineral reserves and mineral resources contained or incorporated by reference herein may not be comparable to similar information disclosed by U.S. companies. In particular, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, these documents use the terms ‘‘Measured Resources’’, ‘‘Indicated Resources’’ and ‘‘Inferred Resources’’. U.S. investors are advised that, while such terms are recognized and required by Canadian securities laws, the SEC does not recognize them. The requirements of NI 43-101 for identification of ‘‘reserves’’ are not the same as those of the SEC, and reserves reported by Pan American in compliance with NI 43-101 may not qualify as ‘‘reserves’’ under SEC standards. Under U.S. standards, mineralization may not be classified as a ‘‘reserve’’ unless the determination has been made that the mineralization could be economically and legally produced or extracted at the time the reserve determination is made. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part of a ‘‘Measured Resource’’ or ‘‘Indicated Resource’’ will ever be converted into a ‘‘reserve’’. U.S. investors should also understand that ‘‘Inferred Resources’’ have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of ‘‘Inferred Resources’’ exist, are economically or legally mineable or will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian securities laws, ‘‘Inferred Resources’’ may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies except in certain cases. Disclosure of ‘‘contained ounces’’ in a mineral resource is a permitted disclosure under Canadian securities laws, however, the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute ‘‘reserves’’ by SEC standards as in place tonnage and grade, without reference to unit measures. Accordingly, information concerning mineral deposits set forth in this AIF and the documents incorporated by reference herein may not be comparable with information made public by companies that report in accordance with U.S. standards.
The SEC has adopted amendments to its disclosure rules to modernize the mineral property disclosure requirements for issuers whose securities are registered with the SEC under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). These amendments became effective February 25, 2019 (the “SEC Modernization Rules”) with compliance required for the first fiscal year beginning on or after January 1, 2021. Under the SEC Modernization Rules, the historical property disclosure requirements for mining registrants included in Industry Guide 7 under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, will be rescinded and replaced with disclosure requirements in subpart 1300 of SEC Regulation S-K. Following the transition period, as a foreign private issuer that is eligible to file reports with the SEC pursuant to the multi-jurisdictional disclosure system (the “MJDS”), Pan American is not required to provide disclosure on its mineral properties under the SEC Modernization Rules and will continue to provide disclosure under NI 43-101. If Pan American ceases to be a foreign private issuer or loses its eligibility to file its annual report on Form 40-F pursuant to the MJDS, then Pan American will be subject to the SEC Modernization Rules, which differ from the requirements of NI 43-101.
As a result of the adoption of the SEC Modernization Rules, the SEC now recognizes estimates of “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources.” In addition, the SEC has amended its definitions of “proven mineral reserves” and “probable mineral reserves” to be “substantially similar” to the corresponding standards under NI 43-101. While the SEC will now recognize “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources”, U.S. investors should not assume that any part or all of the mineralization in these categories will ever be converted into a higher category of mineral resources or into mineral reserves. Mineralization described using these terms has a greater amount of uncertainty as to its existence and feasibility than mineralization that has been characterized as reserves. Accordingly, U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any measured mineral resources, indicated mineral resources, or inferred mineral resources that Pan American reports are or will be economically or legally mineable. Further, “inferred mineral resources” have a greater amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to whether they can be mined legally or economically. Therefore, U.S. investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of the “inferred mineral resources” exist. Under Canadian securities laws, estimates of “inferred mineral resources” may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, except in rare cases. While the above terms are “substantially similar” to the standards under NI 43-101, there are differences in the definitions under the SEC Modernization Rules. Accordingly, there is no assurance any mineral reserves or mineral resources that Pan American may report as “proven mineral reserves”, “probable mineral reserves”, “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources” under NI 43-101 would be the same had Pan American prepared the reserve or resource estimates under the standards adopted under the SEC Modernization Rules.
