Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This website contains or incorporates by reference “forward looking statements” within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and applicable Canadian securities legislation, which may not be based on historical fact. Readers can identify many of these statements by looking for words such as “believe”, “expects”, “will”, “intends”, “projects”, “anticipates”, “estimates”, “continues” or similar words or the negative thereof. Statements that are not based on historical fact contained in this website, including through documents incorporated by reference herein, are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from estimated or anticipated events or results reflected in the forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements reflect the Company’s current views with respect to future events and include, among other things, statements regarding targets, estimates and/or assumptions in respect of reserves and/or resources, and are based on estimates and/or assumptions related to future economic, market and other conditions that, while considered reasonable by the Corporation, are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, including significant business, economic, competitive, political and social uncertainties and contingencies. These estimates and/or assumptions include, but are not limited to: grade of ore; rare earth, tin and lithium and by-product commodity prices; metallurgical recoveries; operating costs; achievement of current timetables for development; strength of the global economy; availability of additional capital; and availability of supplies, equipment and labour.

Factors that could cause the Company’s actual results, performance, achievements, developments or events to differ materially from those expressed or implied by forward-looking statements include, among others, but are not limited to, market conditions, the possibility of cost overruns or unanticipated costs and expenses, the impact of proposed optimizations at the Company’s projects, actual results of exploration activities , mineral reserves and mineral resources and  metallurgical recoveries, discrepancies between actual and estimated production rate, mining operational and development risks and delays, regulatory restrictions (including environmental), activities by governmental authorities, financing delays, joint venture or strategic alliances risks, or other risks in the mining industry, as well as those risk factors discussed or referred to in the Company’s annual Management’s Discussion and Analysis and Annual Report filed with the securities regulatory authorities in all provinces and territories of Canada, other than Québec, and available at www.sedar.com.

Most of the foregoing factors are beyond Avalon’s ability to control or predict. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that the plans, intentions or expectations upon which these forward-looking statements are based will occur. The forward-looking statements contained herein are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. Readers should not place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements, which reflect management’s plans, estimates, projections and views only as of the date hereof. The forward looking statements contained herein is presented for the purpose of assisting readers in understanding the Corporation’s expected financial and operating performance, and the Company’s plans and objectives, and may not be appropriate for other purposes. Avalon does not undertake to update any forward-looking statements that are contained herein, except in accordance with applicable securities law.
