In order to investigate kinetic energy of positronium(Ps) formed by Ore mechanism, we performed positron annihilation age-momentum correlation (AMOC) measurements in Argas for 5.0 MPa and 7.5 MPa at room temperature. From the time dependence of Doppler broadening of para-Ps (p-Ps) self-annihilation gramma-ray component, we observed Ps slowing down process. Using a simple slowing down model, we obtained the initial kinetic energy of Ps formed by Ore mechanism and Ps-Armomentum transfer cross section. The initial kinetic energy was 3.9 eV which was higher than the kinetic energy of Ps formed at the upper limit of Ore gap. The momentum transfer cross section was 0.019 ± 0.010 nm2 in between 1 eV and 3.9 eV, and was close to the theoretical calculation.
