TSXV:OGN) (OTCQX:OGNRF) Orogen Royalties Inc. ("Orogen" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has signed an option agreement (the "Agreement") with Headwater Gold Inc. ("Headwater") (HWG) for the Spring Peak gold project in Nevada, USA

To earn a 100% interest in the Spring Peak project, Headwater will provide a cash payment of US$10,000, a cash or share payment totaling US$250,000 (subject to receipt of certain permits from the United States Forest Service), incur exploration expenditures of US$250,000 within 24 months of signing the Agreement and maintain all required underlying vendor payments and royalties.

Orogen will retain a 0.5% net smelter return ("NSR") royalty and an option to purchase an additional 0.5% NSR royalty for US$1.0 million.

"Spring Peak represents another Orogen property in the Walker Lane Trend of southwestern Nevada that will see significant exploration in 2021 as an outcome of this agreement. We look forward to Headwater's planned drilling and exploration program in August," commented Laurence Pryer, Exploration Manager at Orogen.

The Walker Lane Trend stands out in Nevada with exceptional high-grade gold values, growing reserves and excellent discovery potential. Orogen has significant mineral interests in the Walker Lane Trend anchored by the Company's NSR royalty at AngloGold Ashanti's Silicon deposit and six other gold exploration projects, with three now under option.

About the Spring Peak Project
Spring Peak is a 435-hectare gold exploration project located in the Bodie Hills, of the Walker Lane Trend in Mineral County, Nevada. It is situated near several historical gold and silver mines including the Aurora and Borealis mines in Nevada and Bodie Mine in California (Figure 1).

The Spring Peak project features a low-sulfidation epithermal gold system with hydrothermal breccias and banded epithermal quartz veins exposed at surface where rock sampling returned up to 35 grams per tonne ("g/t") gold with anomalous pathfinder elements that coincide with a soil geochemical anomaly. The epithermal gold system is fully preserved from surface sinters to basement, contain classic banded veins and quartz after calcite boiling textures, all of which indicate exploration potential at depth.

Exploration drilling during the 1980s and 1990s consisted of vertical reverse circulation holes typically measuring less than 100 metres deep that consistently encountered anomalous gold mineralization, with assays from drill chips returning up to 1.9 g/t gold.

Recent CSAMT geophysical surveys have identified potential feeder structures for the epithermal gold system. These structures have the potential to host high-grade gold mineralization and are the principal targets for drilling that is already fully permitted (Figure 2).

5 Top Weekly TSX Performers: Wallbridge Mining Rises on Fenelon Assay Results

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was trading at 19,501.18 early last Friday (August 5) morning. It ultimately closed the week higher at 19.619.88.

That said, all eyes were on platinum and palladium last week as analysts and traders lowered their price forecasts for the year on sluggish demand from the auto sector, a Reuters poll shows.

The Fed hiked interest rates last week by 75 basis points, as was widely expected by market participants. Major indexes have been on the rise, which Lobo Tiggre of IndependentSpeculator.com told me is unsurprising.
