VOX: another month of exciting royalty operator partner newsflow

TSXV:VOX   VOX ROYALTY CORP
Looking to see if this positive news flow can get the share price back above June's recent swing high. Positive divergence between price and the stochastics are encouraging but confirmation is needed.

Riaan Esterhuizen, Executive Vice President – Australia stated, “Yet another month of exciting royalty operator
partner newsflow for Vox shareholders relating to discoveries, resource expansions, project financing and ESG best
practice. We are particularly excited by the exceptional Puzzle North drilling results including 60m @ 3g/t and the
Pitombeiras 221% mineral resource increase. Vox investors can look forward to a catalyst-rich H2 2021, including
maiden mineral resources for royalty-linked Puzzle North, McTavish and mining studies for Lynn Lake Nickel and
Pitombeiras.”

Summary of Exploration Updates
• Growth in Puzzle North discovery with exceptional new wide shallow intercepts by Genesis;
Resource estimate update at Pitombeiras and 221% increase in Measured and Indicated Resources(3);
• Commencement of a modern mining study for the potential restart of mining operations at the Lynn Lake
nickel-copper-cobalt sulphide project by Corazon;
• Capital raising to fund exploration activities at the Kookynie gold project by Metalicity; and
• Partnership for Karora to become one of the world’s first net zero greenhouse gas junior gold mining
companies.

Kookynie (Pre-Feasibility)
– Exceptional Growth in Puzzle North Discovery
• Vox holds a A$1/t production royalty on part of the Kookynie gold project1;

• On June 15, 2021, Genesis announced that:
o Reverse circulation drilling continues to confirm the potential to grow all key deposits which form
the Ulysses Gold Project, including the royalty-linked Puzzle North deposit;
o Puzzle North has been expanded with significant new shallow results, which are some of the most
outstanding drilling results ever reported by Genesis in the history of the Ulysses Project, including
the following drilling highlights:
▪ 60m @ 3.03g/t Au from 106m (hole 21USRC855)
▪ 84m @ 1.98g/t Au from 84m (hole 21USRC912)
40m @ 2.52g/t Au from 44m (hole 21USRC911)
o Management of Genesis commented that:
▪ “The Puzzle North discovery is developing into a significant zone of shallow gold
mineralisation that clearly has the makings of a new open pit mine.”
▪ “The recent drilling may have a significant impact on our development plan – particularly
the exciting shallow results at Puzzle North and the high-grade zone at Admiral deeps –
and we are considering the possibility of including these new elements in our Feasibility
Study.”

• Vox Management Summary: Puzzle North is shaping up to be an exciting gold discovery and operator
guidance suggests that this has the potential to be a new open pit mine, which may be included in the
upcoming Ulysses feasibility study. This exploration royalty acquired in 2020 has growing potential to
generate revenue for Vox shareholders.


Pitombeiras (PEA Stage)
– 221% Increase in Measured & Indicated Resources(3)
• Vox holds a 1% net smelter royalty over the Pitombeiras vanadium-iron ore project;
• On June 16, 2021, Jangada announced an updated resource estimate(3) at Pitombeiras North and South
Targets, with the following highlights:
o 221% increase in Measured and Indicated Resources (“M&I”) based on two of eight identified
targets (see technical note 3 below for further detail):
▪ M&I Resources of 5.10Mt at 0.46% V2O5, 9.04% TiO2 and 46.06% of Fe2O3
▪ Inferred Resource of 2.33Mt at 0.41% V2O5, 8.26% TiO2 and 43.18% of Fe2O3
o Exploration potential remains open along strike and at depth - Jangada has established a target to
potentially delineate 10Mt of total mineral resources.
o Drilling programme at Goela target started in late April 2021 and is expected to be concluded by
end of June 2021
o Updated Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) to be completed in Q3 2021 following the
delivery of the updated mineral resources for both Pitombeiras and Goela, which will include new
metallurgical tests.

• Vox Management Summary: A resource increase of >200% is uncommon in the mining industry and
generally indicates strong momentum in exploration success. The updated Pitombeiras PEA in Q3
2021 will provide guidance for potential royalty revenue that could commence as early as Q1 2022,
based on prior guidance from operator Jangada. The pace of this royalty development continues to
exceed Vox management expectations.

Lynn Lake Nickel (Exploration) – Mining Studies Commence at Lynn Lake Nickel Project
• Vox holds a 2% gross revenue royalty (post initial capital recovery) on part of the Lynn Lake nickel-coppercobalt project (“Lynn Lake”);
• On May 26, 2021, Corazon announced:
o International mining consultants Palaris have been engaged to undertake mining studies for the
potential recommencement of mining operations at Lynn Lake with modern mining and processing
practices - scope of work includes:
▪ Undertaking individual bridging studies in key areas to identify a viable basis of project
design before progressing into future study phases; and
▪ Determining the favoured path forward, utilising “best-fit” mining and processing
techniques to deliver an attractive, long-life mining operation at Lynn Lake.
o Studies are expected to be completed in the following quarter and will feed into more detailed work
designed to advance the development of the Lynn Lake Project.

• Vox Management Summary: Lynn Lake was mined for 24 years until 1976 and was one of North
America’s major nickel operations, producing 206,200t nickel and 107,600t copper . Since 1976 mining
studies undertaken for a potential re-start of the mine have only considered historical mining and
processing methods. This modern mining study accelerates this royalty from exploration to early
development.

Kookynie ( Advanced Exploration)
– Equity Raise for Advancement of Kookynie Gold Project
• Vox holds a A$1/t ore production royalty (with gold grade escalator1
) on part of the Kookynie gold project
held by Metalicity; and

• On June 15, 2021, Metalicity announced that it has received firm commitments for a strongly supported
A$3,000,000 equity raise. The funds raised will be used to advance the Kookynie gold project, continue to
develop its maiden JORC resource estimate (including royalty-linked McTavish deposit), together with
providing working capital and funding for potential new opportunities.
• Vox Management Summary: This equity raise will fund a maiden resource estimate for the McTavish
gold deposit on Vox’s royalty tenure, which should re-rate the value of this exploration royalty.

Higginsville – Dry Creek (Producing) – Partnership to Become Net Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions Company
• Vox holds a price-linked production royalty(2) that is equal to A$0.60/gram gold produced at current gold
prices (effective 0.85% net smelter return economics) on part of the Higginsville gold mine held by Karora;
and

• On June 14, 2021, Karora announced a new partnership with The Net Zero Company to commit to and to
implement a pathway to becoming one of the world’s first net zero junior gold mining companies, as follows:
o Karora will work with The Net Zero CompanyTM to seek to ensure its approach to setting and
achieving GHG reduction targets is inline with best practices based on available science to achieve
the aspirations of the Paris Agreement. As the program is further outlined and targets are identified,
updates will be provided to the market.

o Karora's initial focus will be on Scope 1 and 2 emissions reductions, followed by Scope 3 emissions
reductions to work toward its goal of reaching True Net Zero ( Scope 1, 2 and 3) status.
o Progress on the GHG reduction program will be included in Karora's inaugural ESG Report which
is expected in early 2022.

• Vox Management Summary: This progressive partnership demonstrates Environmental, Social &
Governance ( ESG ) best practice by Karora management. The quality, responsibility and track record
of the Karora management team is what Vox looks for in our royalty operating partners.
