Certain information in this profile may contain forward-looking statements. This information is based on current expectations that are
subject to significant risks, assumptions and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. Actual results might differ materially from results
suggested in any forward-looking statements. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, included in the presentation,
including, without limitation, statements regarding potential mineralization and reserves, exploration results, and future plans and
objectives of Scorpio Mining, are forward-looking statements. Words such as “expect”, “anticipate”, “estimate”, “may”, “will”, “should”,
“intend”, “believe” and other similar expressions are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future
results and conditions but rather reflect our current views with respect to future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions
and other factors, and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. There can be no
assurance that such forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate. Scorpio Mining assumes no obligation to update the forward looking
statements, or to update the reasons why actual results could differ from those reflected in the forward looking-statements unless
and until required by securities laws applicable to the Scorpio Mining . Additional information identifying risks and uncertainties is

An additional Cautionary Note to Investors – In the event that we use certain terms in this presentation, such as “resource”, “measured
resource”, “indicated resource” and “inferred resource”. U.S. investors are cautioned that, while such terms are recognized and required
by Canadian Securities Laws, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. 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 has been made. U.S. investors should not assume that all or any
part of measured or indicated resources will ever be converted into reserves. In addition, “inferred resources” have a great amount of
uncertainty as to their existence and as to whether they can be mined legally or economically. Accordingly, information concerning
descriptions of mineralization in this presentation may not be comparable to information made public by companies that are subject to the
SEC’s Industry Guide 7.
Mr. Jim Atkinson, a Qualified Person under Canadian Securities Administrators guidelines has approved the applicable contents of this profile..
Some of the potential quantities and grades disclosed are conceptual in nature, there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral
resource on all of the mineralization at the Galena Complex and Cosala Operations and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in
certain targets being delineated as a mineral resource.
