Orogen uses prospect generation to manage exploration and financial risks. Prospect generation allows Orogen to grow its existing royalties and security assets in a disciplined and sustainable manner, while gaining exposure to exploration opportunities and discoveries. In addition, Orogen is in a position to operate counter-cyclical to the market by acquiring exploration targets when projects are inexpensive and sell them into well capitalized markets when project demand is strong.
The foundation of Orogen’s royalties has been built on prospect generation and has resulted in two discoveries to date, including the Ermitaño and Silicon projects, with several more royalties currently under exploration.
Orogen identifies, stakes and acquires new projects and performs early-stage work to demonstrate their geologic potential. We then seek partners who bring the capital and expertise to delineate a mineral deposit. Orogen retains exposure to the property through royalties, milestones payments, and equity consideration. Orogen shareholders retain upside benefits if a discovery is made, while downside project risks are eliminated. Over our history, our partners have funded over $65M in capital to advance our exploration projects.
