"We are very excited that Dan has accepted this responsibility at Orogen," said Orogen's CEO Paddy Nicol in a statement.

We would also like to thank Mr Groves for his technical leadership and experience and look forward to working with him in a consulting capacity going forward."
Orogen is focused on precious and base metal discoveries in western North America with a focus on organic royalty creation and royalty acquisitions.

It also has a 1% NSR on the Silicon gold project in Nevada, which is being advanced by AngloGold Ashanti N.A (JSE;ANG)
The company is well-financed with several projects actively being developed by joint venture partners.
