VIZSF) (Frankfurt: 0G3) (“Vizsla Silver” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the effective date for the spin-out of its British Columbia copper assets to Vizsla Copper Corp. (“Vizsla Copper” or “SpinCo”)
is expected to occur at 12:01 a.m. on September 20, 2021 (the “Effective Date”).
Pursuant to the terms of the plan of arrangement (“Arrangement”), holders of common shares of Vizsla Silver on September 17, 2021 will receive one new common share of Vizsla Silver (each, a “Vizsla Silver
Share”) and 1/3 of a SpinCo share (each, a “SpinCo Share”). The existing common shares of Vizsla Silver are expected to be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) on September 17, 2021.

Michael Konnert, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company stated: “As all of our efforts continue to be focused on the Panuco silver-gold project in Mexico, we believe that the spin out of the Company’s early-stage copper assets will allow for independent advancement of otherwise non-core assets creating significant shareholder value.”

Vizsla Silver Shares and SpinCo Shares in accordance with the Arrangement.
