Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This website contains “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable securities legislation. All statements other than statements of historical facts constitute forward-looking information, including but not limited to, but are not limited to, statements regarding the results of the feasibility study on the Camino Rojo project in Mexico (the “Camino Rojo Project”) and the results of the pre-feasibility study on the Cerro Quema project in Panama (the “Cerro Quema Project”), including but not limited to mine plan and operations, internal rate of return, sensitivities, taxes, net present value, potential recoveries, design parameters, operating costs, capital costs, production data, life of mine and economic potential; mining dilution assumptions; exploration potential and planned exploration programs, including expected expenditures at the Camino Rojo Project and the Cerro Quema Project; mineral resource and mineral reserve estimations; the potential for discovery of additional mineral resources and mineral reserves; the timing and costs for production; permitting and financing timelines and requirements; sustaining costs and operating costs; interpretations and assumptions regarding joint venture and potential contract terms; closure costs and requirements; requirements for additional land; upside opportunities including pit wall angles, land agreements, the development of the sulphide mineral resources; Orla’s ability to obtain required mine licences, permits, regulatory approvals and agreements with third parties; availability of sufficient water; expectations regarding commodity prices and exchange rates; community and Ejido relations; competition for, among other things, capital, acquisitions of mineral resources and mineral reserves, undeveloped lands and skilled personnel; the ability to secure the required capital to conduct planned exploration programs, studies and construction; and the Company’s objectives and strategies. Words such as “believe”, “expect”, “anticipate”, “contemplate”, “target”, “plan”, “goal”, “aim”, “intend”, “continue”, “budget”, “estimate”, “may”, “will”, “can”, “could”, “should”, “schedule” and similar expressions, or stating that certain actions, events, conditions or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “should”, “might” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved, or the negative of any of these terms and similar expressions, often, but not always, identify forward-looking statements.
Forward-looking statements are based upon a number of factors and assumptions that, if untrue, could cause actual results, performance, or achievements to be materially different from future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such statements. Some of the material factors or assumptions used to develop forward-looking statements include, without limitation, the expectations and beliefs of management, including that the Company can access financing, appropriate equipment and sufficient labour; assumed and future price of gold and silver; anticipated costs; ability to achieve goals; that the political and legal environment in which the Company operates; that all required permits and approvals will be obtained; that there will be no material adverse change affecting the Company, its properties or the political and legal environment in which the Company operates; the discovery of mineral resources and mineral reserves on the Company’s material properties; the obtaining of agreements with third parties; the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the operations of the Company; the Company’s ability to operate in a safe, efficient and effective manner; that the Company’s activities will be carried out in accordance with the Company’s public statements and stated goals; and assumptions related to the risk factors set forth below. While these factors and assumptions are considered reasonable by the Company as at the date the statements are made in light of management’s experience and perception of current conditions and expected developments, these statements are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Certain important factors that could cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from those in the forward-looking include, but are not limited to: (i) access to additional capital; (ii) risks related to uncertainties inherent in the preparation of feasibility studies, pre-feasibility studies and the estimation of mineral resources and mineral reserves, including changes in the economic parameters; (iii) community, health, safety and environmental risks; (iv) success of exploration, development and operations activities; (v) risks relating to foreign operations and expropriation or nationalization of mining operations; (vi) delays in obtaining or failure to obtain governmental permits, or non-compliance with permits; (vii) delays in getting access from surface rights owners and risks relating to not securing agreements with third parties or not receiving required permits; (viii) uncertainty in estimates in production, capital and operation costs and potential of production and cost overruns; (ix) the impact of Panamanian or Mexican laws regarding foreign investment; (x) the fluctuating price of gold and silver, and currency and interest rates; (xi) risks that the interpreted drill results may not accurately represent the actual continuity of geology or grade of the deposit, bulk density measurements may not be representative, interpreted and modelled metallurgical domains may not be representative and metallurgical recoveries may not be representative; (xii) assessments by taxation authorities in multiple jurisdictions; (xiii) uncertainties related to title to mineral properties; (xiv) the Company’s ability to identify, complete and successfully integrate acquisitions; (xv) volatility in the market price of Company’s securities; (xvi) delays in or failure to enter into a subsequent agreement with Fresnillo plc with respect to the Camino Rojo Project; (xvii) risks related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s operations; (xviii) health, safety and environmental risks; and (xix) the risks associated with executing on the Company’s objectives and strategies. This list is not exhaustive of the factors that may affect any of the Company’s forward-looking statements. Although the Company believes its expectations are based upon reasonable assumptions and have attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. See the section entitled “Risk Factors” in the Company’s most recently filed Annual Information Form and management’s discussion and analysis (“MD&A”) for additional risk factors that could cause results to differ materially from forward-looking statements.
Investors are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements contained herein are made as of the date they are made and, accordingly, are subject to change after such date. The Company disclaims any intent or obligation to update publicly or otherwise revise any forward-looking statements or the foregoing list of assumptions or factors, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except in accordance with applicable securities laws. Investors are urged to read the Company’s filings with Canadian and US securities regulatory agencies, which can be viewed online under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and EDGAR at www.sec.gov, respectively.

Cautionary Note to United States Investors Regarding Presentation of Mineral Reserve and Mineral Resource Estimates
The mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates reported on this website have been prepared in accordance with Canada standards for reporting of mineral resource and mineral reserve estimates, which differ from the standards of United States securities laws. In particular, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the terms “mineral reserve”, “proven mineral reserve”, “probable mineral reserve”, “inferred mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources”, “measured mineral resources” and “mineral resources” used or referenced on this website are Canadian mineral disclosure terms as defined in accordance with NI 43-101 and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (the “CIM”) — CIM Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves, adopted by the CIM Council, as amended (the “CIM Definition Standards”). These definitions differ significantly from the definitions in Industry Guide 7 (“SEC Industry Guide 7”) under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, which applied to U.S. filings prior to January 1, 2021. Under such U.S. standards, mineralization may not be classified as a “reserve” unless the determination has been made that the mineralization could be economically and legally produced or extracted at the time the reserve determination is made. Also, under SEC Industry Guide 7 standards, a “final” or “bankable” feasibility study is required to report reserves, the three-year historical average price is used in any reserve or cash flow analysis to designate reserves and the primary environmental analysis or report must be filed with the appropriate governmental authority.
In addition, the terms “mineral resource”, “measured mineral resource”, “indicated mineral resource” and “inferred mineral resource” are defined in and required to be disclosed by NI 43-101; however, these terms are not defined terms under SEC Industry Guide 7 and are normally not permitted to be used in reports and registration statements filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves. “Inferred mineral resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, except in rare cases. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource exists or is economically or legally mineable. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Disclosure of “contained ounces” in a resource is permitted disclosure under Canadian regulations; however, the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute “reserves” by SEC standards as in place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures. Accordingly, information contained on this website that describes the Company’s mineral deposits may not be comparable to similar information made public by U.S. companies subject to reporting and disclosure requirements under the United States federal securities laws and the rules and regulations thereunder.
The SEC has adopted amendments to its disclosure rules to modernize the mineral property disclosure requirements for issuers whose securities are registered with the SEC under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). These amendments became effective February 25, 2019 (the “SEC Modernization Rules”) with compliance required for the first fiscal year beginning on or after January 1, 2021. Under the current SEC Modernization Rules, the historical property disclosure requirements for mining registrants included in SEC Industry Guide 7 were rescinded and replaced with disclosure requirements in subpart 1300 of SEC Regulation S-K. As a foreign private issuer that is eligible to file reports with the SEC pursuant to the multi-jurisdictional disclosure system, the Company is not required to provide disclosure on its mineral properties under the SEC Modernization Rules and will continue to provide disclosure under NI 43-101 and the CIM Definition Standards. If the Company ceases to be a foreign private issuer or lose its eligibility to file its annual report on Form 40-F pursuant to the multi-jurisdictional disclosure system, then the Company will be subject to the SEC Modernization Rules which differ from the requirements of NI 43-101.
As a result of the adoption of the SEC Modernization Rules, the SEC now recognizes estimates of “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources.” In addition, the SEC has amended its definitions of “proven mineral reserves” and “probable mineral reserves” to be “substantially similar” to the corresponding CIM Definition Standards that are required under NI 43-101. While the SEC will now recognize “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources”, U.S. investors should not assume that any part or all of the mineralization in these categories will ever be converted into a higher category of mineral resources or into mineral reserves. Mineralization described using these terms has a greater amount of uncertainty as to its existence and feasibility than mineralization that has been characterized as reserves. Accordingly, U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any measured mineral resources, indicated mineral resources, or inferred mineral resources that the Company reports are or will be economically or legally mineable. Further, “inferred mineral resources” have a greater amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to whether they can be mined legally or economically. Therefore, U.S. investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of the “inferred mineral resources” exist. Under Canadian securities laws, estimates of “inferred mineral resources” may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, except in rare cases. While the above terms are “substantially similar” to CIM Definitions, there are differences in the definitions under the SEC Modernization Rules and the CIM Definition Standards. Accordingly, there is no assurance any mineral reserves or mineral resources that the Company may report as “proven mineral reserves”, “probable mineral reserves”, “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources” under NI 43-101 would be the same had the Company prepared the reserve or resource estimates under the standards adopted under the SEC Modernization Rules or the prior standard under SEC Industry Guide 7.
