Royalties Are #1 Best Possible Inflation Hedge

Royalties in mining projects are the #1 best possible inflation hedge because they allow you to capitalize on rising precious/base metals prices without any of the negative effects of rising price inflation like higher energy costs. NIA's #1 favorite royalty stock suggestion is Vox Royalty (TSXV: VOX) or VOXCF on the U.S. OTCQX.

Vox Provides Development and Exploration Updates

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 9, 2022 / Vox Royalty Corp. (TSXV:VOX) (OTCQX:VOXCF) ("Vox" or the "Company"), a returns focused precious metals royalty company, is pleased to provide recent development and exploration updates from royalty operating partners Zijin Mining Group Co., Ltd. (HKSE:2899) ("Zijin Mining"), Develop Global Limited (ASX: DVP) ("Develop"), Black Cat Syndicate Limited (ASX:BC8) ("Black Cat"), and Tartisan Nickel Corp. (CSE: TN) ("Tartisan").

Spencer Cole, Chief Investment Officer stated: "The past month has seen strong progress by operating partners on a number of Vox's gold and base metal royalty properties, including a 33% ore tonnage upgrade at the Binduli North gold project. Demonstrating the depth of Vox's royalty portfolio, a number of exploration-stage royalties are being actively progressed towards development ahead of Vox management expectations, such as the Merlin/Electric Dingo gold deposits near the Paulsens mill and the Kenbridge nickel-copper project commencing construction on an all-season access road."

Key Updates

  • Significant increase in forecasted royalty ore tonnages at the Binduli North gold expansion project covered by the Janet Ivy royalty and construction plans for an 8MW solar farm to power the Binduli heap leach project, released by Zijin Mining's subsidiary Norton Gold Fields Pty Ltd;
  • Exceptional drilling results at the Sulphur Springs copper-zinc project by Develop, which are expected to result in a significant resource upgrade based on Develop management guidance;
  • JORC 2012 resource estimate filed for the Paulsens Gold mine by Black Cat, which include Vox's Merlin and Electric Dingo gold royalty assets; and
  • Construction commencement of an all-season access road at the Kenbridge nickel-copper project by Tartisan, demonstrating a significant next step in preparation for a mining operation.

Janet Ivy (Producing - Western Australia) - Increased Royalty Ore Tonnages1 and Solar Power Plans

  • Vox holds a A$0.50/tonne production royalty over the Janet Ivy gold mine in Western Australia;
  • In March 2022, Zijin Mining filedmining proposal for the Binduli North heap leach gold project, which included:
    • 33% increase in forecast ore tonnages from the previously filed December 2020 Mining Proposal report (and Janet Ivy Technical Report1 dated October 5, 2021), with total Binduli North life of mine ore tonnages increased from 41Mt @ 0.6g/t Au for 787Koz1 to 55Mt @ 0.6g/t Au for 1,103Koz2;
    • Significant increase in gold royalty tonnages covered by the Vox royalty expected over the project over the +10 year mine life of the expansion project; and
    • Plans to install up to 8MW of single axis tracking solar PV, reducing reliance on diesel generated power.
  • Vox Management Summary: This 33% increase in forecast ore tonnages at the Binduli North gold expansion project has directly unlocked value for Vox shareholders by providing potential for production upside and mine life extension beyond 10 years. We look forward to commencement of production from the Binduli North expansion in the second half of 2022.

  • Vox holds a A$2.00/tonne production royalty (capped at A$3.7M) on the Sulphur Springs copper-zinc deposit and an uncapped A$0.80/tonne production royalty on the Kangaroo Caves deposit, which is part of the combined Sulphur Springs project in Western Australia;
  • On May 16, 2022, Develop announced:
    • Exceptional final results from the A$10M drilling program;
    • Thick high-grade copper-zinc mineralisation intersected in resource drilling:
      • 65.1m @ 3.5% copper-equivalent grade3 ("CuEq") Western lens open pit infill;
      • 50.0m @ 2.9% CuEq3 Eastern lens underground infill;

      • 23.0m @ 5.2% CuEq3 Western lens underground infill;
    • High-grade hangingwall zinc mineralisation expanded further with results including:
      • 11.7m @ 26.7% Zn & 148 g/t, including 3.7m @ 51.9% Zn & 385g/t Ag;
      • 25.0m @ 8.9% Zn & 39.6 g/t Ag;
    • Exploration drilling continues to intersect thick zones of high-grade mineralisation:
      • 23.0m @ 2.6% Cu; and
    • A resource update for Sulphur Springs is scheduled for release in the September 2022 quarter.
  • Vox Management Summary: These copper and zinc drilling results are some of the highest-grade intersections in the history of the feasibility-stage Sulphur Springs project. Vox management is confident that the upcoming resource update in the September 2022 quarter is likely to further support a near-term construction decision.

Merlin and Electric Dingo (Exploration - Western Australia) - JORC Resource Release & Open Pit Potential

  • Vox holds a 0.75% gross revenue royalty (>250koz cumulative production) over the Merlin gold deposit, and a 1.75% gross revenue royalty (>250koz cumulative production hurdle that is combined with the Ashburton gold royalty) over the Electric Dingo gold deposit. Both royalties form part of the Paulsens gold operation in Western Australia;

    • Due diligence expectations were met at Paulsens where Mt Clements, Merlin and Electric Dingo deposits were converted to JORC 2012-compliant resources;
    • These three deposits all have the potential to provide open pit material into the Paulsens processing facility; and
    • There is high potential to grow all resources.
  • Vox Management Summary: Since acquiring the Paulsens mine in April 2022, new operator Black Cat has reprioritised the royalty-linked Merlin and Electric Dingo gold deposits as potential sources of open pit material for the existing Paulsens processing facility. We look forward to future updates from Black Cat on these deposits with potential for them to be fast-tracked into production via the existing processing facility.

Kenbridge (PEA - Canada) - Construction Commencement for All-Season Access Road

    • CEO Mark Appleby commented: "All-season access for the Kenbridge Nickel Project is a significant next step in preparation for a mining operation and we are pleased to have a full team engaged in road construction. The ability to have fuel, utility and construction vehicles able to drive into the Kenbridge mining camp via the Kenbridge Nickel Project access road is game changing. Construction completion is anticipated by September 2022."
  • Vox Management Summary: The commencement of construction of an all-season road is a key long-lead item towards preparing for a mining operation at the Kenbridge nickel-copper project.
