GENERAL:  I freely choose to participate in Company activities and I understand that my participation in such activities is contingent upon my agreement to the terms and conditions of this document.  While participating in Company activities, I agree to abide by any and all rules and standards of conduct, including health and safety standards, as determined by the Company or which may be deemed prudent by a reasonable person.


HEALTH, SAFETY and RISKS:  I have been advised to consult with a medical doctor with regards to my own personal medical needs, and I certify that there are no health-related reasons or problems that would preclude or restrict my participation in any Company activity in which I choose to participate,  nor do I have any medical conditions that could be exacerbated by my participation in such activity.


I understand and accept that there are certain risks and hazards associated with the Company’s activities which could lead to injury, illness, death, or loss of or damage to personal property.  These risks include, but are not limited to rocky, steep and unstable terrain; tripping and falling hazards; risks inherent to activity in a desert environment including dehydration and heat exhaustion; unstable pit walls and tailings piles; dangerous or venomous animals; weather conditions including lightning, wind, heat/cold, and intense sun; exposure to dust-borne spores and silica dust; heavy equipment including excavators, bulldozers, and loaders; and the actions, including gross negligence, of the Company and other participants in the Company’s activities.


I recognize the Company is not obligated to attend to any of my medical or medication needs, and I assume all risk and responsibility therefore.  In case of a medical emergency during my participation in any Company activity, I authorize the Company in advance to secure whatever treatment is necessary, and to take any actions it considers to be warranted regarding my health and safety.  I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury/damage I may sustain while participating in a Company activity or will bear the costs of such injury/damage myself.

GUARDIANSHIP:  If I am purchasing a Company activity as parent or legal guardian, temporarily or otherwise, of  a minor under the age of 18 years, or as guardian for someone who is not legally capable of making their own decisions, I certify that I am legally allowed to do so and that my agreement is binding upon any other person or entity that might claim legal guardianship.
