/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

TORONTO, June 30, 2020 - Vox Royalty Corp. (TSXV: VOX) ("Vox" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding Royalty Sale and Purchase Agreement dated June 29, 2020 pursuant to which Vox will acquire a royalty on select tenements within Black Cat Syndicate Limited's ("Black Cat") advanced exploration stage Bulong Gold Project (the "Bulong Royalty") for consideration of A$750,000 comprised of A$400,000 in cash and A$350,000 in Vox shares (the "Transaction"). The seller will be issued 99,202 Vox shares for the A$350,000 share portion of the consideration.

The Bulong Gold Project ("Bulong" or the "Project") is owned and operated by Black Cat and is located 25km east of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia. The proximity to Kalgoorlie provides Bulong with excellent infrastructure, including a sealed road and mains power which run through the project as well as potential future access to five regional gold mills within 50km. The Bulong tenements were consolidated by Black Cat prior to its admission to the ASX in January 2018 and cover an area of ~82km2. The Bulong Royalty tenements cover ~26km2 and include the following deposits with JORC (2012) compliant resource estimates: Myhree, Boundary, Queen Margaret, Melbourne United, Strathfield and the "up-dip" portion of the Trump resource which straddles the royalty tenure.

The acquisition of the Bulong Royalty from RPM Automotive Group Limited ("RPM") further demonstrates Vox's consistent strategy of identifying and acquiring royalties held by non-mining focussed companies – similar to Vox's historical royalty transactions with 3D printing and education company STEMify Limited, telecommunications company Vonex Limited and hearing technology company Nuheara Limited.

Transaction Highlights

  • Bulong is located within 50 km trucking distance of five regional gold mills
  • Provides exposure to an ongoing feasibility study which is assessing Myhree as a baseload producer with potential satellite mines at Queen Margaret, Melbourne United, Strathfield, Trump, Trump North and Boundary
  • Myhree contains an Indicated open-pit JORC resource of 580,000t @ 3.6 g/t for 67,000 ounces, an underground Inferred JORC resource of 572,000t @ 3.1 g/t for 58,000 ounces as well as an underground Inferred JORC resource of 275,000t @ 3.4 g/t for 30,000 ounces
  • The Feasibility Study is targeted for completion in the September 2020 quarter with most technical studies complete (environmental, geotechnical, hydrological, hydrogeological, and metallurgical)
  • Further exploration upside with all resources open at depth with good potential to also increase resources through extensional drilling, according to Black Cat
  • Since acquiring the project approximately two years ago Black Cat has drilled over 80,000m at Bulong

Riaan Esterhuizen, Executive Vice President of Vox stated: "Vox is excited to add this advanced exploration stage gold royalty with near-term development potential and considerable exploration upside to our growing portfolio. Black Cat has a strong management team with a track record of transitioning projects from exploration to mining and has made rapid progress at Bulong through a substantial amount of drilling and completion of various technical studies. This acquisition is consistent with our strategy of acquiring high quality royalties in Tier 1 jurisdictions such as Australia from unconventional sellers who are motivated to realize value for their shareholders by monetizing non-core assets."
