2022 Exploration: South Railroad (Nevada)

South Railroad is a feasibility-stage heap leach project that is currently in the permitting stage. The feasibility study on the project contemplates open pit mining of the Dark Star and Pinion deposits. South Railroad is situated within a prospective land package, referred to as the Railroad-Pinion property, along the prolific Carlin Trend, which provides opportunities for future resource expansion and conversion, and the discovery of new deposits. Orla is actively exploring the land package in parallel with permitting and development of the heap leach project.

The project covers a strike length of over 25 kilometres along the southern end of the prolific Carlin Gold Trend, Nevada. The Carlin Trend consists of multiple deposits containing a huge gold endowment of >100 million ounces. Gold mineralization at South Railroad occurs mainly as disseminated Carlin-type ore-stage pyrite in stratiform breccia and stratigraphic horizons within a complex fault network. The property hosts multiple zones of oxide, transition and sulphide mineralization, throughout the entire land package, with current Proven & Probable Reserves of 1.6 M oz (65.2 Mt @ 0.77 g/t Au) and Measured and Indicated Resources of 1.8 M oz (75.3 Mt @ 0.74 g/t Au). Multiple high priority exploration targets have been defined and provide excellent upside potential for the discovery of new deposits.

Exploration at South Railroad in 2022 focused on oxide resource definition and expansion at multiple targets. Upon taking ownership of the South Railroad project in August 2022, Orla accelerated exploration activities and expanded the project’s 2022 program. The program objectives included: 1) confirming historical drill results, and 2) providing additional information, including increased drill hole spacing density, specific gravity measurements and material for preliminary metallurgical test work necessary for mineral resources estimation upgrade and growth. 2022 RC drill assay results are in line with historical drilling data at each of the drilled targets. Mineral resource estimates for Pinion SB, POD, Sweet Hollow, and Jasperoid Wash mineralized zones, and at the Dixie target, are planned for 2023.

In total, 10,573 metre of drilling (9,796 metres of RC in 61 holes and 777 metres of core in 7 holes) were completed at South Railroad in 2022. All RC assay results have been received and are presented in this news release. Assay results for drill core holes remain pending. Selective core material will be used for metallurgical test study planned for the second quarter 2023.

Pinion SB – Resource Expansion:

The Pinion SB mineralized zone is contiguous and southeast of the Pinion deposit. Orla completed 12 RC holes (2,874 drill metres) in 2022. Drilling successfully demonstrated continuity of the oxide gold mineralization extending southeast over a redefined strike length of 420 metres and from 115 to 190 metres vertical depth. Mineralization remains open along strike. The Pinion deposit and Pinion SB Zone are hosted in a northwest-trending structural zone, at the Devil’s Gate / Tripon Pass – Webb formations karsted contact, within the south-plunging nose of the Bullion Anticline. An updated resource estimate is planned for the second half of 2023.

Notable results:

Sweet Hollow – Resource Expansion:

The Sweet Hollow mineralized zone is located in the northern part of the property near the POD mineralized zone, and 1.25 km southwest of the North Bullion deposit. This is a similar geological setting to Newmont’s Emigrant deposit located to the north of the property. Seven RC holes (628 metres) and 3 core holes (171 metres) were completed at Sweet Hollow in 2022. Drilling intersected oxide mineralization, confirming near surface positive historical drill results. Sweet Hollow gold mineralization is hosted in Devil’s Gate / Tripon Pass – Webb formations karsted contact along the north-northeast trending Bullion Fault. An updated resource estimate is planned for the second half of 2023.

Notable results:

  • SH22-03: 0.52 g/t Au over 35.1 m (Oxide) from 41.1 m
  • SH22-04: 0.41 g/t Au over 32.0 m (Oxide) from 16.8 m

Figure 5: South Railroad Project – Sweet Hollow Long Section

Jasperoid Wash – Resource Expansion:

Jasperoid Wash is located 10 km south of the Pinion deposit. Gold mineralization is currently defined over 140 metres vertically starting at surface. Eight RC holes (1,222 metres) were completed at Jasperoid Wash in 2022. Drilling intersected oxide, transition, and sulphide mineralization, confirming positive historical drill results. The mineralized zone is hosted in Pennsylvania – Permian formations sedimentary breccia and Tertiary intrusive rocks bounded by two north trending regional structures known as the Westport and Eastport Faults. An updated resource estimate is planned for the second half of 2023.

Notable results:

  • JW22-04: 0.62 g/t Au over 18.3 m (Transition) from 30.5 m
  • JW22-03: 0.29 g/t Au over 38.1 m (Oxide) from 71.6 m
  • JW22-06: 0.24 g/t Au over 27.4 m (Oxide) from 18.3 m, and
    0.37 g/t Au over 15.2 m (Oxide) from 67.1 m

Figure 6: South Railroad Project – Jasperoid Wash Long Section

Dixie – Advanced Exploration, Resource Definition:

Dixie is located 3.4 km to the south of the Dark Star deposit along a north-trending regional structure known as the Ridgeline Fault. Twelve RC holes (2,615 metres) and 2 core holes (411 metres) were completed at Dixie in 2022. No resource exists at Dixie and an initial resource estimate is planned for 2023 using both historical results and 2022 RC and core drilling completed by Orla, along with drill core material to be used for metallurgical studies. Gold mineralization is hosted in Pennsylvanian – Permian Formations sedimentary rocks and is currently defined over 200 metres, ranging from 75 to 300 metres below surface and remains open to the south.

Notable results:

  • DX22-06: 0.50 g/t Au over 35.1 m (Transition) from 74.7 m, and
    0.81 g/t Au over 19.8 m (Oxide) from 109.7 m
  • DX22-04: 1.77 g/t Au over 10.7 m (Transition) from 163.1 m, and
    0.62 g/t Au over 15.2 m (Oxide) from 207.3 m
  • DX22-01: 0.47 g/t Au over 36.6 m (Transition) from 149.4 m

Figure 7: South Railroad Project – Dixie Long Section

LT – Early-Stage Exploration:

The LT target is located 3 km northwest of the Pinion deposit. Selected historical significant oxide intercepts at LT includes: 30.5 m of 0.78 g/t Au (LT20-08) and 39.6 m of 0.76 g/t Au (LT21-02). Oxide mineralization at LT starts at the surface and is open along strike to the north and at depth. Mineralization is currently defined over a strike length of 600 metres and from surface to 115 metres vertically. Two RC holes were drilled in 2022 (335 drill metres) with one hole (L22-01) intersecting positive oxide gold mineralization from surface. The second hole was drilled off trend and did not return significant results. A soil geochemical survey was also performed in 2022 to define extension of the mineralization to the north and orient follow-up drilling. Partial soil results received thus far suggest gold mineralization may extend north of LT. The LT target is hosted in the north-trending LT Fault at the permissive Devil’s Gate / Tripon Pass – Webb formations karsted contact.

Notable result:

  • LT22-01: 0.53 g/t Au over 21.3 m (Oxide) from 0.0 m

2023 Exploration Plans & Strategy: South Railroad (Nevada)

A $10 million exploration budget is planned in Nevada in 2023 which would include approximately 22,400 metres of drilling (16,500 metres of RC drilling and 5,900 metres of core).

Resource Definition and Expansion + New Discoveries:

Multiple targets, including the extension of known mineralization (deposits) and newly developed targets supported by geology, geochemistry, and geophysical data, have been defined by Orla. Key exploration targets to be drilled in 2023 include Pinion SB, as well as extensions of mineralization at Jasperoid Wash, Dixie, POD, Sweet Hollow, and North Bullion. Target design focuses on primary structural controls (north–south and west-northwest–east-southeast striking structures), especially where these structures intersect and crosscut favourable stratigraphic horizons.

There is potential for the discovery of additional satellite deposits, including Carlin-, epithermal- and skarn-type gold and base metal mineralization, throughout the district in many areas that have not been thoroughly tested. Targets with potential for new discoveries occur in various parts of the property and include LT, Webb, Millie, Quick, Davis, CC, Ranch, Hidden Star, Porter, Robinson, Willow, and South Dome. In addition to drill testing some of these less advanced targets, geological mapping and geochemical surveys are planned to advance early-stage targets to the drill-stage and to develop new exploration targets.

Cautionary Note to U.S. Readers

This news release has been prepared in accordance with Canadian standards for the reporting of mineral resource and mineral reserve estimates, which differ from the previous and current standards of the 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 in this news release are Canadian mineral disclosure terms as defined in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“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”).

For United States reporting purposes, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) has adopted amendments to its disclosure rules (the “SEC Modernization Rules”) to modernize the mining property disclosure requirements for issuers whose securities are registered with the SEC under the Exchange Act. The SEC Modernization Rules more closely align the SEC’s disclosure requirements and policies for mining properties with current industry and global regulatory practices and standards, including NI 43-101, and replace the historical property disclosure requirements for mining registrants that were included in Industry Guide 7 under the U.S. Securities Act. As a foreign private issuer that is eligible to file reports with the SEC pursuant to the multijurisdictional disclosure system, the Company is not required to provide disclosure on its mineral properties under the SEC Modernization Rules and provides disclosure under NI 43-101 and the CIM Definition Standards. Accordingly, mineral reserve and mineral resource information contained in news release may not be comparable to similar information disclosed by United States companies.

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 above terms are “substantially similar” to CIM Definition Standards, there are differences in the definitions under the SEC Modernization Rules and the CIM Definition Standards. 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 under the prior standards of Industry Guide 7. Accordingly, information contained in this news release may not be comparable to similar information made public by U.S. companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements under the United States federal securities laws and the rules and regulations thereunder.

1 All metres reported above are down-hole intervals, with estimated true widths averaging from 60-95% of the reported interval. See Table 1 for estimated true widths of individual composites. All assays were performed on 5 foot (1.5 metre) RC intervals. The reported composites were not subject to “high grade capping” and Orla believes that applying a top cut would have a negligible effect on overall grades. Composites for the oxide and transition drilling were calculated using 0.17 g/t Au, and sulphide drilling was 0.5 g/t Au cut-off grade and maximum 6 metres consecutive internal waste. Oxide, transition, and sulphide mineralized intervals were defined using cyanide leach results applied to >0.17 g/t Au mineralization defined by fire assay analysis. Oxide, transition, and sulphide intersections are defined by >70%, 40-70% and <40% cyanide recovery results respectively.
