Toronto – May 17, 2023 – PPX Mining Corp. (the “Company” or “PPX”) is pleased to announce that, further to its news release issued on February 21, 2023, it has received the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) in respect of the amended and restated gold and silver purchase agreement (the “Amended and Restated GPA”) with RIVI Opportunity Fund LP (“RIVI”), whereby the Company and RIVI have agreed to restructure the Company’s streaming and payment obligations under the original gold and silver purchase agreement dated October 10, 2016 between the Company and RIVI, as amended (the “Original GPA”). The amendments made in the Amended and Restated GPA were subject to the receipt of the approval of the TSXV, which has now been obtained.
The TSXV approval was also made in respect of the issuance by the Company to RIVI of a secured convertible debenture in the principal amount of US$5,399,946 (the “Convertible Debenture”). The Convertible Debenture will mature on the third anniversary of the date of issue and bears interest at a rate of 5% per annum, payable semi-annually. RIVI may convert all or any part of the principal amount outstanding into common shares in the capital of the Company (the “Shares”), at a conversion price of US$0.04 per Share (subject to adjustment), subject to a restriction on any conversion which would result in RIVI owning, on a post-conversion basis, more than 19.9% of the outstanding Shares without the approval of the TSXV. The obligations under the Convertible Debenture will be secured by the same security package granted under the Original GPA (which continue under the Amended and Restated GPA).
For further details regarding the amendments made to the Original GPA that are incorporated into the Amended and Restated GPA (including with respect to removal of default net smelter returns royalties and a restructuring of the delivery obligations under the stream to align with the Company’s circumstances), please refer to the Company’s news release issued on February 21, 2023.

Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which involve factors or circumstances that are beyond the Company’s control, and the Company’s actual results could differ materially from those stated or implied in forward-looking statements due to many various factors. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, the Company cannot guarantee that the events and circumstances reflected in the forward-looking statements will be achieved or occur.
