2. 2 CNSX: NVO|OTCQX: NSRPF Some statements in this presentation contain forward-looking information (within the meaning of Canadian securities legislation), including without limitation statements as to the potential, through further drilling, to expand and upgrade to the indicated category the inferred resources described in this presentation, and that a preliminary economic assessment will be undertaken later this year. These statements address future events and conditions and, as such, involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the statements. Such factors include, without limitation, the ability to complete the drilling programs and other exploration activities as currently contemplated, the receipt of successful results as drilling proceeds, customary risks of the mineral resources exploration industry as well as Novo Resources Corp. (Novo or the Company) having sufficient cash to fund the planned drilling and other activities, as well as other risks and factors mentioned in the continuous disclosure filings of Novo which can be found under its profile on the SEDAR website ( Shareholders and prospective investors are therefore cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking information. Novo undertakes no obligation to update publicly or otherwise revise any forward-looking information whether as a result of new information, future events or other such factors which affect this information, except as required by law. Dr. Quinton Hennigh, the Companys Chief Executive Officer, President and Director and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, has approved the technical contents of this presentation. This presentation uses the term "inferred resources." We advise U.S. investors that while this term is recognized and required by Canadian regulations, it is not recognized by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. "Inferred resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an "inferred mineral resource" will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of "inferred mineral resources" may not form the basis of a feasibility study or prefeasibility studies. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of an inferred resource exists or is economically or legally mineable. CSE: NVO|OTCQX: NSRPF NOVO RESOURCES CORP.
