Origen Acquires Additional Lithium Claims in Newfoundland

04/29/2021 | 09:05am EDT

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 29, 2021) - Origen Resources Inc. (CSE: ORGN) (FSE: 4VX) (the "Company" or "Origen") is pleased to announce that it has acquired two additional claim blocks covering 4,600 hectares within the Newfoundland Lithium Belt. This brings the Company's total holdings to over 33,000 hectares in this newly identified and highly prospective lithium corridor.

These new claims contain the following key characteristics as identified in the Company's earlier acquisitions that are indicative of lithium rich pegmatites:

  • Similar tectonic setting to Kings Mountain and lithium pegmatite occurrences in Ireland;
  • Age of the associated granite intrusive;
  • Areas known for pegmatite occurrences;
  • Highly favorable geochemical pathfinders;
  • Prospective areas easily accessible and close to infrastructure.

"As the world advances towards clean energy alternatives, we are thrilled to be the first to step into this newly discovered lithium region. With the advantage of acquiring what we feel is the most promising ground in the region, coupled with Coast Mountain Group ("CMG"), a world-class leading technical team, and Ganfeng Lithium as a shareholder, we are poised for a very exciting year," states Company President Blake Morgan.

Explorations Plans

The Company intends on mobilizing crews into the region within the next few weeks to commence mapping, prospecting and geochemical sampling over its new holdings. The immediate goal is to further define our target areas in this new prospective lithium belt by applying exploration techniques developed over the last two decades on the Avalonia (Leinster) pegmatite belt in Ireland. In addition to bringing priority targets to drill readiness, the Company will apply prospecting and geochemical methods between existing targets and extending along the pegmatite field. The Company will apply experience from Ireland and North America in district-scale pegmatite zoning to focus these efforts.

About Newfoundland Lithium Belt

The Newfoundland Lithium Belt exhibits all the characteristics of a major lithium rich corridor as observed in Ireland and the Carolinas. There are key indicative signs that point to specific target areas with high expectations for the discovery of lithium rich pegmatites. Numerous occurrences of pegmatites have been observed that exhibit highly-favorable lithium-cesium-tantalum ("LCT") geochemical signatures. Mapping of the geochemical pathfinders for lithium has revealed distinct vectors that have guided the Company to focus in on the more prospective areas and acquire a commanding land position in this new belt.

These geochemical pathfinders, on a regional scale, reveal a distinct corridor that transects Newfoundland and corresponds to the tectonic suture zone hosting the world-class Carolina Tin-Spodumene Belt and the lithium pegmatite occurrences in Ireland that have received significant attention in recent years. In addition, the age of the associated parent granites observed in Newfoundland coincides with the 'sweet spot' occurrence of highly favorable lithium rich pegmatites.

John Harrop, P Geo., a Qualified Person as that term is defined in NI 43-101, has prepared, supervised the preparation, or approved the scientific and technical disclosure in the news release. Mr. Harrop is employed by Coast Mountain Geological Ltd. He is not independent of the Company as defined in NI43-101.
