Vizsla Silver Corp. (TSX-V: VZLA) (NYSE: VZLA) (Frankfurt: 0G3) is pleased to announce its intention to spin out the shares of Vizsla Royalties Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vizsla Silver, to the Company’s shareholders. Vizsla Royalties currently holds, indirectly, a net smelter royalty on any potential future mineral production at Vizsla Silver’s flagship, 100% owned Panuco silver-gold project located in Sinaloa, Mexico.


The Royalty consists of: (i) a 2.0% net smelter return royalty on certain unencumbered concessions comprising the Project; and (ii) a 0.5% net smelter return royalty on certain encumbered concessions comprising the Project which have a pre-existing 3.0% net smelter return royalty.


Vizsla Silver is also expected to: (i) transfer to Vizsla Royalties the right to purchase one-half of the 3% Underlying Royalty; (ii) grant Vizsla Royalties the right to acquire a royalty on any future projects acquired by Vizsla Silver in the 24-month period after completion of the Spinout, which right would automatically terminate upon a change of control of Vizsla Royalties or Vizsla Silver and (iii) make a cash injection into Vizsla Royalties.


It is expected that the Spinout will be completed pursuant to a plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia). The Spinout would be subject to shareholder, court, stock exchange and regulatory approvals, as well as, at management’s continued discretion. Pursuant to the Spinout, common shares of Vizsla Royalties would be distributed to shareholders of Vizsla Silver. Vizsla Silver is expected to hold approximately a 49% ownership interest in Vizsla Royalties, with the remaining shares of Vizsla Royalties being distributed to shareholders of Vizsla Silver on a pro-rata basis at a time to be determined by the board of directors of Vizsla Silver. There will be no change in shareholders’ holdings in Vizsla Silver as a result of the Spinout.


Subsequent to completion of the Spinout, the board of directors of Vizsla Royalties may decide to pursue a listing on the TSX Venture Exchange if and when the Vizsla Royalties Board determines it is in the best interests of the Vizsla Royalties shareholders. It is expected that, at the time Vizsla Royalties pursues a listing on the TSX Venture Exchange, a majority of the members of its management team and the Vizsla Royalties Board will be independent of Vizsla Silver.


Additional details regarding the Spinout, including the proposed record date, will be provided as they become available. There is no certainty Vizsla Silver will proceed with the Spinout.


Shareholders are invited to contact Vizsla Silver via email at for additional information regarding the Spinout.
