As we approach the New Year we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support…
Vancouver, BC, November 1, 2022. Origen Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Origen”) (CSE:ORGN; FSE:4VXA) is pleased to announce that Jessy Ventures Corp. (“Jessy”) has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) for its previously announced qualifying transaction involving the option of the Arlington Property (the “Property”) from Origen. Jessy optioned the Arlington Property from Origen, based on highly anomalous gold, silver, copper and cobalt sampling and historical production, both on the property, and from the nearby past-producing Carmi polymetallic Ag/Au/Pb/Zn Mine, all within the historical Beaverdell Mining Camp, east of Pentiction in south-central British Columbia.
In addition, the previously announced arm’s length mineral property option agreement dated September 17, 2021 (the “Definitive Agreement”), as set out in Jessy’s September 22, 2021 news release and Origen’s September 23, 2021 news release, has been amended to provide that Jessy will pay $110,000 of costs related to Origen’s previously completed exploration program, payable in cash and shares by issuing to Origen, 900,000 common shares of Jessy (at a deemed price of $0.10 per common share) and paying $20,000 in cash, within five days of Jessy completing its Qualifying Transaction.
Pursuant to the Definitive Agreement, Jessy has been granted the exclusive right and option (the “Option“) to acquire an undivided 60% interest in and to the Property, consisting of five (5) mineral claims covering approximately 1,571.65 hectares, located approximately 17 km north of Beaverdell and 67 km south of Kelowna within the Arrow Boundary District of south-central British Columbia. The Option is earned over a 3 year period.
“We would like to congratulate Jessy on reaching this milestone in their listing process. Jessy’s concurrent financing will allow for focused exploration on a polymetallic project with highly-attractive sample results underlying a solid geological model. The Option on the Arlington Property is yet another example of Origen’s business model of partnering with capable groups to advance its assets and are excited to see Jessy fully explore Arlington’s potential,” states Blake Morgan, President.
As disclosed in Jessy’s September 22, 2021 news release, following Jessy’s receipt of final TSXV approval, Gary Schellenberg, member of the Origen Board, will join the Board of Jessy. Additionally, it has been decided that Blake Morgan, also a director of Origen, will join the Board of Jessy.
