Orogen is a royalty and mineral exploration company engaged in the business of royalty creation and acquisition.

Orogen’s foundation is built on prospect generation. The Company leverages its geological expertise to identify and advance high‐quality exploration projects. The Company monetizes these projects to generate royalties and recuperate its investment through transactions with industry or joint venture partners. This approach allows the Company to generate discovery opportunities while minimizing project risks and maximizing financial sustainability with the ultimate goal of royalty creation for the Company.

Orogen also augments its royalty portfolio with selective royalty acquisitions. Our industry knowledge and relationships help identify and evaluate quality mineral projects that have a high probability of becoming cash‐flowing royalties.

Orogen deploys capital in a disciplined manner with a focus on strong risk‐adjusted returns.‍
