This Site includes certain statements that constitute “forward-looking statements”, and “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable securities laws collectively “forward-looking statements”. These statements appear in a number of places in the Content and on this Site and include statements regarding the Company’s intent, or the beliefs or current expectations of the Company’s officers and directors. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties that may cause the Company’s actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. When used in the Content and the Site, words such as “believe”, “anticipate”, “estimate”, “project”, “intend”, “expect”, “may”, “will”, “plan”, “objective”, “target”, “anticipated”, “advancing”, “start”, “underway”, “commence”, “outlook”, “budget”, “schedule”, “potential” and similar expressions are intended to identify these forward-looking statements as well as phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “should”, “occur” or “be achieved” or the negative connotation of such terms. As well, forward-looking statements may relate to the Company’s future outlook and anticipated events, such as the Company’s ability to successfully operate its mines and achieve the annual production and costs estimated for its mines, exploration results at its projects and the Company’s ability to expand the resource base and extend the mine life at its projects, the Company’s ability to restart production at Castle Mountain and Santa Luz and timing of the anticipated restart of production, the Company’s ability to successfully execute on the expansion projects planned for its Los Filos and Castle Mountain mines, the Company’s ability to achieve the results anticipated in the studies regarding its construction and expansion projects, conditions and risks associated with the corporate revolving credit facility, conditions and risks associated with the convertible notes, and statements regarding the Company’s assets, future financial position, business strategy, budgets, litigation, projected costs, financial results, exploration results, taxes, plans and objectives. The Company has based these forward-looking statements largely on the Company’s current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends affecting the financial condition of the Company’s business. These forward-looking statements were derived using numerous assumptions regarding expected growth, results of operations, performance and business prospects and opportunities that could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements and include but are not limited to: (1) there being no significant disruptions affecting Equinox Gold’s operations or projects; (2) political, security and legal developments in jurisdictions where Equinox Gold operates or may in future operate, being consistent with Equinox Gold’s current expectations; (3) the accuracy of Equinox Gold’s mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates; (4) the exchange rates between the Canadian dollar, the U.S. dollar, the Brazilian reals and the Mexican peso being approximately consistent with current levels; (5) prices for key supplies, equipment, labour and material costs being consistent with Equinox Gold’s current expectations; and (6) all required permits, licenses and authorizations being obtained in a timely manner or at all, or if obtained, remaining in place, from relevant governments. While the Company considers these assumptions to be reasonable, based on information currently available, they may prove to be incorrect. Accordingly, readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results. Forward-looking statements are based on information available at the time those statements are made and/or management’s good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date those statements are made. Except as required by applicable law, the Company assumes no obligation to update or to publicly announce the results of any change to any forward-looking statement contained or incorporated by reference herein to reflect actual results, future events or developments, changes in assumptions or changes in other factors affecting the forward-looking statements. If the Company updates any one or more forward-looking statements, no inference should be drawn that the Company will make additional updates with respect to those or other forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements contained in the Content and on the Site are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement.
Unless otherwise noted on this Site, the scientific and technical information in this website has been reviewed by Adriaan (Attie) Roux, Pr.Sci.Nat., Equinox Gold’s COO, Doug Reddy, P.Geo, Equinox Gold’s Senior Vice President Technical Services and Scott Heffernan, MSc, P.Geo.

You are also advised to refer to the latest annual information form and technical reports of the Company as well as other continuous disclosure documents filed by the Company available at www.sedar.com, for detailed information (including qualifications, assumptions and notes set out accordingly) regarding the mineral reserve and mineral resource information contained on the Site.
Cautionary Note to US Investors
Information concerning the properties and operations discussed on this Site has been prepared in accordance with Canadian standards under applicable Canadian securities laws and may not be comparable to similar information for United States companies. The terms “Mineral Resource”, “Measured Mineral Resource”, “Indicated Mineral Resource” and “Inferred Mineral Resource” used on this Site are Canadian mining terms as defined in accordance with NI 43-101 under guidelines set out in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (“CIM”) Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves adopted by the CIM Council on December 11, 2005. While the terms “Mineral Resource”, “Measured Mineral Resource”, “Indicated Mineral Resource” and “Inferred Mineral Resource” are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, they are not defined terms under standards of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Under United States 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 calculation is made. As such, certain information contained in the Company’s publications and the Content concerning descriptions of mineralization and resources under Canadian standards is not comparable to similar information made public by United States companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements of the SEC. Equinox Gold may use certain terms in its publications or in the Content such as “resources” or “possible ore reserves” that SEC guidelines strictly prohibit U.S. companies from including in filings with the SEC. An “Inferred Mineral Resource” has a great amount of uncertainty as to its existence and as to its 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 feasibility or other economic studies. You are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of Measured or Indicated Resources will ever be converted into Mineral Reserves. Readers are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an “Inferred Mineral Resource” exists, or is economically or legally mineable. In addition, the definitions of “Proven Mineral Reserves” and “Probable Mineral Reserves” under CIM standards differ in certain respects from the standards of the SEC. In addition, the Company’s publications and the Content may include information about adjacent properties on which the Company has no right to explore or mine. The Company advises U.S. investors that the SEC’s mining guidelines strictly prohibit information of this type in documents filed by U.S. companies with the SEC. U.S. investors are cautioned that mineral deposits on adjacent properties are not indicative of mineral deposits on the Company’s properties.
