Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Information

Certain statements contained on the Site may constitute “forward-looking statements” or “forward-looking information” (collectively, “forward-looking statements”) and are made pursuant to the “safe harbor” provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and Canadian securities laws. Forward-looking statements are statements which relate to future events. Such statements include estimates, forecasts and statements with respect to project development risks, estimated future production and cash costs, future trends, plans, strategies, objectives and expectations, including with respect to costs, capital requirements, availability of financing, production, exploration and reserves and resources and projected production at the San Francisco open pit gold mine, the associated La Chicharra open pit gold mine and the additional exploration claims in and around these mines (collectively, the “San Francisco Property”) and the Ana Paula property (the “Ana Paula Project”), including estimated internal rate of return and projected production, exploitation activities and potential and future operations. Information inferred from the interpretation of drilling results and information concerning mineral resource estimates may also be deemed to be forward-looking statements, as it constitutes a prediction of what might be found to be present when, and if, a project is developed. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may”, “should”, “expects”, “plans, “anticipates”, believes”, “estimates”, “predicts”, “potential”, or “continue” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. All statements and information other than statements of historical fact may be forward-looking statements.

These forward-looking statements are based on a number of assumptions, including: the successful completion of development projects, planned expansions or other projects within the timelines anticipated and at anticipated production levels; the accuracy of reserve and resource, grade, mine life, cash cost, net present value and internal rate of return estimates and other assumptions, projections and estimates made in the technical reports for the San Francisco Property and the Ana Paula Project; that mineral resources can be developed as planned; interest and exchange rates; that required financing and permits will be obtained; general economic conditions; that labor disputes, flooding, ground instability, fire, failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated and other risks of the mining industry will not be encountered; the price of gold, silver and other metals; competitive conditions in the mining industry; title to mineral properties; and changes in laws, rules and regulations applicable to the Company.

Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause actual results, performance or achievements, or industry results, to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements. The Company believes the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, but no assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements due to the inherent uncertainty thereof. Some of the risks and other factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements contained on the Site include, but are not limited to: decreases in the price of gold; competition with other companies with greater financial and human resources and technical facilities; risks associated with doing business in Mexico; maintaining compliance with governmental regulations and expenses associated with such compliance; ability to hire, train, deploy and manage qualified personnel in a timely manner; ability to obtain or renew required government permits; failure to discover new reserves, maintain or enhance existing reserves or develop new operations; risks and hazards associated with exploration and mining operations; accessibility and reliability of existing local infrastructure and availability of adequate infrastructures in the future; environmental regulation; land reclamation requirements; ownership of, or control over, the properties on which the Company operates; maintaining existing property rights or obtaining new rights; inherent uncertainties in the process of estimating mineral reserves and resources; reported reserves and resources may not accurately reflect the economic viability of the Company’s properties; uncertainties in estimating future mine production and related costs; risks associated with expansion and development of mining properties; currency exchange rate fluctuations; directors’ and officers’ conflicts of interest; inability to access additional capital; problems integrating new acquisitions and other problems with strategic transactions; legal proceedings; uncertainties related to the repatriation of funds from foreign subsidiaries; no dividend payments; volatile share price; negative research reports or analyst’s downgrades and dilution; and other factors contained in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in Alio’s annual information form, filed annually on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and on the SEC website (www.sec.gov).

Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements, you are cautioned that this list is not exhaustive and there may be other factors that the Company has not identified. Furthermore, the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements included on the Site if these beliefs, estimates and opinions or other circumstances should change, except as otherwise required by applicable law.

Disclosure of Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources

Readers are advised that National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) of the Canadian Securities Administrators requires that each category of mineral reserves and mineral resources be reported separately. Readers should refer to our continuous disclosure documents, available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and on the SEC website (www.sec.gov) for this detailed information, which is subject to the qualifications and notes set forth therein. Unless otherwise provided on the Site, the technical information about our mineral properties provided by the Site has been prepared under the supervision of and approved for disclosure by [●], who is a “qualified person” within the meaning of NI 43-101.

For more information on the San Francisco Property mineral reserves and mineral resources, see the San Francisco Property technical report entitled “NI 43-101 F1 Technical Report Updated Resources and Reserves and Mine Plan for the San Francisco Gold Project, Sonora, Mexico” dated May 25, 2017 with an effective date of April 1, 2017 (the “San Francisco Report”) prepared by Micon International Limited of Toronto, Ontario (“Micon”). The Qualified Persons responsible for the San Francisco Report are William J. Lewis, B.Sc., P.Geo., Ing. Alan J. San Martin, MAusIMM(CP), Mani Verma, P.Eng. and Richard M. Gowans, B.Sc., P.Eng. of Micon. The San Francisco Report is available on the Site and has been filed on SEDAR (www.sedar.com). Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

For more information on the Ana Paula Project mineral reserves and mineral resources, see the Ana Paula Project technical report entitled “Ana Paula Project, NI 43-101 Technical Report, Amended Preliminary Feasibility Study, Guerrero, Mexico” dated June 7, 2017 with an effective date of May 16, 2017 (the “Ana Paula Report”) prepared by Daniel H. Neff, P.E., Art Ibrado, PhD, P.E., Taj Singh, P.Eng., Andrew Kelly, P.Eng., Gordon Zurowski, P.Eng., Pierre Desautels, P.Geo., Gilberto Dominguez, P.E. and James A. Cremeens, P.E., P.G. The Ana Paula Report is available on the Site and has been filed on SEDAR (www.sedar.com). Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors

The Company is subject to the reporting requirements of applicable Canadian securities laws, and as a result reports mineral reserves and resources according to Canadian standards. Canadian reporting requirements for disclosure of mineral properties are governed by NI 43-101. The definitions of NI 43-101 are adopted from those given by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (“CIM”). U.S. reporting requirements are governed by Industry Guide 7 (“Guide 7”) of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”). These reporting standards have similar goals in terms of conveying an appropriate level of confidence in the disclosures being reported, but embody different approaches and definitions. For example, under Guide 7, 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 is made. We report “resources” in accordance with NI 43-101. While the terms “Mineral Resource,” “Measured Mineral Resource,” “Indicated Mineral Resource” and “Inferred Mineral Resource” are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, they are not defined terms under the standards of the Commission and, generally, U.S. companies are not permitted to report resources in documents filed with the Commission. As such, certain information contained on this Site concerning descriptions of mineralization and resources under Canadian standards is not comparable to similar information made public by U.S. companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements of the Commission. In addition, an “Inferred Mineral Resource” has a great amount of uncertainty as to its existence and as to its economic and legal feasibility, and you cannot assume that all or any part of an “Inferred Mineral Resource” will ever be upgraded to a higher category. You are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of “Measured” or “Indicated” Resources will ever be converted into “Mineral Reserves”, and not to assume that all or any part of an “Inferred Mineral Resource” exists, or is economically or legally mineable. In addition, the definitions of “Proven Mineral Reserves” and “Probable Mineral Reserves” under CIM standards differ in certain respects from the standards of the Commission.
