These forward-looking statements relate to, among other things, the Company's ability to continue managing the movement in the waste-rock dump to ensure continued safe operations at the Kumtor project with no significant impact on production, the timing for and successful relocation of the infrastructure, the successful implementation of the short-term waste-rock dumping plan, the prompt development and receipt of regulatory approvals for an alternative long-term waste-rock dumping plan and its implementation, and the outcome of the special commission on the waste-dump movement having no significant impact on the Company's operations.
Although the forward-looking information in this news release reflects Centerra's current beliefs as of the date of this news release based on information currently available to management and based upon what management believes to be reasonable assumptions, Centerra cannot be certain that actual results, performance, achievements, prospects and opportunities, either expressed or implied will be consistent with such forward-looking information. Forward-looking information is necessarily based upon a number of estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by Centerra, are inherently subject to significant political, business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. Known and unknown factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking information.
Other factors that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things: the Company obtaining all necessary permits and approvals to carry out its short-term and long-term plans to manage the waste-rock dump movement, including for the relocation of infrastructure; the outcome of the special commission formed to inspect the waste-rock dump movement; political and regulatory risks including the on-going discussions between the Company and Kyrgyz Republic Government officials regarding outstanding matters in the Kyrgyz Republic and the resolution of environmental claims received in December 2012 and February 2013; the Company's ability to enforce its legal rights; the sensitivity of Centerra's business to the volatility of gold and base metal prices; risks associated with having a significant shareholder, and risks relating to Centerra directors having conflicts of interests. There may be other factors that cause results, assumptions, performance, achievements, prospects or opportunities in future periods not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. See "Risk Factors" in the Company's 2012 Annual Information Form available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
