Kyle Floyd, Chief Executive Officer stated: "The catalyst-rich and deep portfolio of royalties Vox continues to acquire at precedent setting pace is building immense value for our shareholders through organic developments and advancements by our operating partners. It is a pleasure to pass through the news delivered from operating partners Black Cat and Val Ore. Moreover, when Vox acquired the Bulong royalty from RPM Automotive Group in June 2020, we believed that this project would be catalyst-rich and had strong potential for near term production. We are thrilled with this update confirming strong potential for 2021 mining commencement at Bulong. Likewise, the impressive drilling results from Pedra Branca speak to the world-class nature of this growing orebody, which is already the largest PGE deposit in South America. We look forward with great anticipation to sharing further exciting organic news flow over the coming months from over 40 operating partners who are actively progressing projects underlying our royalty interests."
