Vancouver, BC, April 21, 2023.  Origen Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Origen”)  (CSE:ORGN; FSE:4VXA) is pleased to announce it has appointed Mr. Rodney Stevens as VP, of Corporate Development. Mr. Stevens is a Chartered Financial Analyst (“CFA”) charterholder with over a decade of experience in the capital markets, first as an investment analyst with Salman Partners Inc. subsequently as a merchant and investment banker.

While at Salman Partners, Mr. Stevens became top-rated by Starmine for the metals and mining industry. Mr. Stevens was also a Portfolio Manager registered with Wolverton Securities Ltd. and over the course of his career, he has been instrumental in assisting in financings and mergers and acquisitions activities worth over $1 billion in transaction value.

Gary Schellenberg, Origen’s CEO commented, “Rodney will be an invaluable asset to the Origen team. I am excited by our on-going work in Argentina at Los Sapitos, and look forward to the summer program on our Newfoundland lithium project.  Great to have Rodney come onboard to help us rapidly advance our goals.”

Origen’s first phase of sampling and mapping work at Los Sapitos is being analysed, and a ground-based gravity survey is being contracted.  The Company expects sampling results shortly and is still on-track for the initial drill testing program planned for the second half of this year.

Further to Company’s first-tranche closing of its private placement on March 14, 2023, the Company has extended the financing and plans to close a second tranche of the unit financing in the near term for estimated proceeds of $1.25 million. Each unit will be issued at $0.25 per unit and consist of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant, with each full warrant being exercisable for a period of 18 months at 40 cents.
