Numerous factors could cause actual events to differmaterially from those in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause such differences, without limiting the generality of the following,include: risks inherent in exploration activities; volatility and sensitivity to market prices for uranium; volatility and sensitivity to capital marketfluctuations; the impact of exploration competition; the ability to raise funds through private or public equity financings; imprecision in resource andreserve estimates; environmental and safety risks including increased regulatory burdens; unexpected geological or hydrological conditions; apossible deterioration in political support for nuclear energy; changes in government regulations and policies, including trade laws and policies;demand for nuclear power; weather and other natural phenomena; delays in obtaining or failures to obtain required governmental, environmental orother project approvals; and other exploration, development, operating, financial market and regulatory risks. Although Ur-Energy Inc. believes thatthe assumptions inherent in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on these statements, which onlyapply as of the date of this presentation. Ur-Energy Inc. disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement,whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.Cautionary Note Regarding Projections: Similarly, this presentation also may contain projections relating to an extended future period and,accordingly, the estimates and assumptions underlying the projections are inherently highly uncertain, based on events that have not taken place,and are subject to significant economic, financial, regulatory, competitive and other uncertainties and contingencies beyond the control of Ur-EnergyInc. Further, given the nature of the Companys business and industry that is subject to a number of significant risk factors, there can be noassurance that the projections can be or will be realized.
