What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?

The key challenge for Vortex Metals is getting permits to drill. Permitting process can take longer than anticipated. We are mitigating this challenge by seeking strong community support. We have hired an expert community relations expert, who has been engaging with land owner and user communities for several months now. So far we have received good support and believe that we will be able to complete all necessary tasks to obtain drill permits..

What do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?

The projects owned by Vortex Metals have probably one of the best exploration potential..these projects were curated by famous geologist, late David Jones, who was credited with the discovery of Los Filos Mine, one of the largest gold and silver mines in Mexico. He worked on these projects for almost 10 years, alongside strong technical experts, such as Dr James (Jim) Franklin, a renowned VMS expert. It is rare for early stage exploration companies to have such strong probability of exploration success. The Company has a strong maangement team with experienced professionals on both business as well as technical sides. The risk reward ratio from exploration activities is very favorablefor investors. All the necessary work has been done and several highly prospective drill targets are just ready to be drilled. The valuation of the company is very low and investors are getting a rare opportunity to become part of an exciting process that can lead to a major resource discovery. When that happens, the reward for investors could be many fold increase in valuation of their shares from these levels.

What are the top 3 key investor takeaways?

1: Advanced stage exploration project with extremely prospective drill ready targets
2: Potential for a major discovery
3: Low valuation and very attractive risk-reward ratio for investment at these levels
