About This Webinar
Orogen Royalties Inc. is focused on organic royalty creation and selective royalty acquisitions on precious and base metal discoveries in western North America. The Company’s royalty portfolio includes the Ermitaño West gold deposit in Sonora, Mexico (2% NSR royalty) being developed by First Majestic Silver Corp. Initial production at Ermitaño West is estimated to begin in late 2021 and will ramp up over the course of 2022. Indicated resources at Ermitaño include 335,000 ounces and 36.1 million ounces silver, and inferred resources total 522,000 ounces gold and 59.5 million ounces silver.

Orogen also has a 1% NSR royalty on the Silicon gold project in Nevada, USA, being advanced by AngloGold Ashanti. While no results have been publicly announced, Anglogold has indicated the potential for significant oxide orebodies at the Central Silicon zone and the Merlin Zone, two key exploration areas on the Silicon project. A resource is expected on Silicon and Merlin in H1 2022. Anglogold has also secured land adjacent to Silicon with the recent announcement to acquire Corvus Gold for US$450 million to support their vision for Silicon and the surrounding area as a Tier 1 gold asset.

Orogen also holds nine other organically generated royalties on projects including the Cumobabi gold/copper project in Sonora, Mexico and the Axe copper project in British Columbia.

Orogen’s prospect generation business includes several early-stage targets in British Columbia, Nevada, and northwestern Mexico. Thirteen projects are currently under option to joint venture partners and all agreements are structured for royalty creation and cash payments.
