CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION
This website contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of applicable United States securities legislation and “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation, together “forward-looking information”. Forward-looking information includes, but is not limited to, information with respect to Nighthawk’s continued exploration programs (including size and budget), the updated mineral resource estimate (“2022 MRE”), and the ability to advance targets including but not limited to the known deposits of the Indin Lake Gold Property (Colomac Main, Goldcrest, Grizzly Bear, 24, 27, Kim, Cass, Damoti, and Treasure Island) and to conduct enough drilling to provide an updated mineral resource estimate for the Indin Lake Gold Property, in accordance with the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum’sNational Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”), and the timing and results thereof; the ability to conduct additional metallurgical test-work and the timing and results thereof; the ability to raise the necessary capital on acceptable terms in order to conduct exploration programs including mapping, prospecting and drilling activities and identify new targets in future years (as well as any intention to expand these programs in the future); project development and permitting as well as environmental assessments and protection requirements; and the ability to carry out any strategic business plans and strategies with respect to the continued growth of the Company. Generally, forward-looking information can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “plans”, “expects”, or “does not expect”, “is expected”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates”, or “does not anticipate”, or “believes” or variations of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might”, or “will be taken”, “occur”, or “be achieved”.
Forward-looking information is subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information, including risks associated with mineral exploration and development operations such as: environmental hazards and economic factors as they affect the cost and success of the Company’s capital expenditures; the ability of the Company to obtain required permits and approvals; the ability of the Company to obtain financing; uncertainty in the estimation of mineral resources; the price of gold; no operating history, no operating revenue and negative
cash flow; land title risk; the market price of the Company’s securities; the economic feasibility of the Company’s mineral resources and the Company’s commercial viability; uncertain global economic conditions; the COVID-19 outbreak and other health crisis; dependence on management and other highly skilled personnel; title to the Company’s mineral properties; the ongoing war in Ukraine; extensive government and environmental regulation; volatility in the financial markets; uninsured risks; climate change; threat of legal proceedings; unforeseen liabilities from past acquisitions, as well as those risk factors discussed or referred to in the Company’s 2021Annual Information Form (AIF) under the heading “Risk Factors”.
Forward-looking information is based on the reasonable assumptions, estimates, analysis and opinions of management made in light of its experience and perception of trends, current conditions and expected developments, as well as other factors that management believes to be relevant and reasonable in the circumstances at the date that such statements are made, but which may prove to be incorrect. Although the Company believes that the assumptions and expectations reflected in such forward-looking information are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking information because the Company can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. In addition to other factors and assumptions identified in the 2021AIF, assumptions have been made regarding, among other things: the Company’s ability to carry on its exploration and development activities without undue delays or unbudgeted costs, especially in light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the ability of the Company to obtain sufficient qualified personnel, equipment and services in a timely and cost-effective manner, the ability of the Company to operate in a safe, efficient and effective manner, the ability of the Company to obtain all necessary financing on acceptable terms and when needed, the accuracy of the Company’s resource estimates and geological, operational and price assumptions on which these are based and the continuance of the regulatory framework regarding environmental manners. Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list is not exhaustive of all factors and assumptions that may have been used. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such information will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such information. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking information. The Company does not undertake to update any forward-looking information, except in accordance with applicable securities laws.

Cautionary Note Regarding Technical Disclosure
Readers are cautioned that mineral resources are not economic mineral reserves and that the economic viability of mineral resources that are not mineral reserves has not been demonstrated. The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by geology, environmental, permitting, legal, title, socio-political, marketing or other relevant issues. The 2022 MRE is classified in accordance with the NI 43-101. Under Canadian rules, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies or economic studies except for Preliminary Economic Assessment as defined under NI 43-101. Readers are cautioned not to assume that further work on the stated resources will lead to mineral reserves that can be mined economically. The Company has defined inferred mineral resources in accordance with NI 43-101.
An Inferred Mineral Resource as defined by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum Standards (“CIM”) Standing Committee is “that part of a Mineral Resource for which quantity and grade or quality are estimated on the basis of limited geological evidence and sampling. Geological evidence is sufficient to imply but not verify geological and grade or quality continuity. An Inferred Mineral Resource has a lower level of confidence than that applying to an Indicated Mineral Resource and must not be converted to a Mineral Reserve. It is reasonably expected that the majority of Inferred Mineral Resources could be upgraded to Indicated Mineral Resources with continued exploration.”
Cautionary Note to US Investors
This website was prepared in accordance with Canadian standards for reporting of mineral resource estimates, which differ in some respects from United States standards. In particular, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the terms “inferred mineral resources,” “indicated mineral resources,” and “mineral resources” used or referenced in this website are Canadian mineral disclosure terms as defined in accordance with NI 43-101. Until recently, the CIM Standards differed significantly from standards in the United States. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) has adopted amendments to its disclosure rules to modernize the mineral property disclosure requirements for issuers whose securities are registered with the SEC under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). These amendments became effective February 25, 2019 (the “SEC Modernization Rules”) with compliance required for the first fiscal year beginning on or after January 1, 2021. The SEC Modernization Rules replace the property disclosure requirements for mining registrants that were included in SEC Industry Guide 7, which have been rescinded. As a result of the adoption of the SEC Modernization Rules, the SEC now recognizes estimates of “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources”. In addition, the SEC has amended its definitions of “proven mineral reserves” and “probable
mineral reserves” to be “substantially similar” to the corresponding definitions under the CIM Standards that are required under NI 43-101. Investors are cautioned that while the above terms are “substantially similar” to the corresponding CIM Definition Standards, there are differences in the definitions under the SEC Modernization Rules and the CIM Definition Standards. Accordingly, there is no assurance any mineral resources that the Company may report as “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources” under NI 43-101 would be the same had the Company prepared the mineral reserve or mineral resource estimates under the standards adopted under the SEC Modernization Rules. Readers are cautioned that
“inferred mineral resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic 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, except in limited circumstances. The term “resource” does not equate to the term “reserves”. Readers should not to assume that all or any part of measured or indicated mineral 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 mineable.
