Vancouver, B.C. August 15, 2022 (TSX.V:OGN) (OTCQX:OGNRF)  Orogen Royalties Inc. (“Orogen” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the acquisition by staking of the La Verdad epithermal gold-silver project in Durango, Mexico.

La Verdad Project Highlights

Laurence Pryer, VP Exploration at Orogen commented, “La Verdad was identified by Orogen’s technical team using our proprietary regional databases. The property offers excellent opportunity for discovery with several geological similarities to Ermitaño, which was identified by Orogen in 2015 (P&P reserves of 337 Koz gold and 4.9 Moz silver; Figure 4 (1)). La Verdad and other projects being generated by our technical teams illustrate Orogen’s commitment to organic royalty generation as a pathway to value creation.”

About La Verdad

The 264 hectare La Verdad project is in southeastern Durango, Mexico on the margin of the Sierra Madre Occidental within the Mexican Silver Belt (Figure 1).

The property contains a low-sulfidation epithermal system consisting of two principal subparallel quartz veins, Santa Rita and La Verdad, that occur along a strike length of over 2.5 kilometres. The veins are developed in folded Cretaceous limestones with rare siltstone interbeds.

Multiple stages of white, yellow and green quartz veins outcrop and display classic low sulfidation style textures. The Santa Rita and La Verdad veins may extend beneath shallow alluvium which covers over 40 percent of the potential vein strike. Orogen recently identified highly anomalous gold and silver in both the Santa Rita and La Verdad veins (Figure 2).

Less than one hundred metres of the vein strike was previously drill tested in 2013 (Figure 2). Undrilled dilational zones in the vein, with thicknesses of greater than 30 metres correlate with the highest gold and silver values from recent rock chip sampling (Figure 3). Drill targets are ready for testing and the project is currently available.

Forward Looking Information

This news release includes certain statements that may be deemed “forward looking statements”. All statements in this presentation, other than statements of historical facts, that address events or developments that Orogen Royalties Inc. (the “Company“) expect to occur, are forward looking statements. Forward looking statements are statements that are not historical facts and are generally, but not always, identified by the words “expects”, “plans”, “anticipates”, “believes”, “intends”, “estimates”, “projects”, “potential” and similar expressions, or that events or conditions “will”, “would”, “may”, “could” or “should” occur.

Forward looking information relates to statements concerning the Company’s future outlook and anticipated events or results, as well as the Company’s management expectations with respect to the proposed business combination (the “Transaction”).

Factors that could cause the actual results to differ materially from those in forward looking statements include market prices, exploitation and exploration successes, and continued availability of capital and financing, and general economic, market or business conditions.  Furthermore, the extent to which COVID-19 may impact the Company’s business will depend on future developments such as the geographic spread of the disease, the duration of the outbreak, travel restrictions, physical distancing, business closures or business disruptions, and the effectiveness of actions taken in Canada and other countries to contain and treat the disease. Although it is not possible to reliably estimate the length or severity of these developments and their financial impact as of the date of approval of these condensed interim consolidated financial statements, continuation of the prevailing conditions could have a significant adverse impact on the Company’s financial position and results of operations for future periods.
