Llano de Nogal option to fall under the Riverside/BHP Exploration 2022 funding arrangement

TSX.V:OGN)(OTCQX:OGNRF) Orogen Royalties Inc. ("Orogen" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has signed an option agreement (the "Agreement") with Riverside Resources Inc. (TSX.V:RRI) ("Riverside") for the Llano de Nogal copper-gold porphyry project in Sonora, Mexico

Under the terms of the Agreement, Riverside can earn a 100% interest in Llano de Nogal by making cash payments totaling US$2.48 million and exploration expenditures of US$5 million over a six-year period. Orogen will retain a 1% production royalty on Llano del Nogal. Riverside will retain a ten-year buy-down right whereby 0.5% can be purchased for US$10 million.

"Orogen assembled the Llano de Nogal land package through staking and third-party acquisitions," commented Orogen CEO Paddy Nicol. "Llano del Nogal contains several copper-gold porphyry and polymetallic vein targets and is one of the few undrilled projects in the Cananea-La Caridad porphyry copper trend. Llano de Nogal represents an excellent opportunity for an economic discovery, and we welcome Riverside/BHP's exploration expertise and financial backing on the project. Initial exploration plans at Llano de Nogal include geology, geophysics and geochemistry with a budget of US$1.0 million."

About the Llano Del Nogal property

The Llano del Nogal project is a 98-square-kilometre land package in the prolific Cananea-La Caridad porphyry copper trend (Figure 1). The property is located 35 kilometres northwest of the La Caridad mine that, after 35 years of historic mining, has a measured and indicated mineral resource of over 6.4 Bt grading 0.17% copper[1]. The project is also 60 kilometres southeast of the Cananea (Buenavista Mine), one of the world's largest porphyry copper deposits with a total global resource of over 15Bt at 0.22% copper1 remaining after over 120 years of continuous mining.

Llano del Nogal displays evidence of an extensive strong alteration system developed within a window of Cretaceous age altered volcanics cut by Laramide intrusions and breccias (Figure 2). Three principal target zones exist on the property (Figure 3): a northern magnetic high concealed by post mineral cover and rimmed by copper anomalous skarns and veins, a central magnetic high at Suanse associated with an extensive eroded lithocap and quartz-chalcopyrite veins exposed in drainages, and a southern magnetic low bounded by northeast trending structurally controlled polymetallic veins and extensive quartz-sericite pyrite alteration.

Now trading just above US$1,800 per ounce, the gold price isn't performing as well as some investors would like. But for Brian Leni, founder of Junior Stock Review, the outlook remains bright.

"To me the value in the precious metals and the overall precious metals thesis is just so strong it's overwhelming," he said at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention.

Leni describes himself as a value investor, and emphasized that for him the precious metals story isn't a question of "if," it's a question of "when" — the key is picking the right companies and being ready to wait.
