About Orla Mining Ltd.


Orla’s corporate strategy is to acquire, develop, and operate mineral properties where the Company’s expertise can substantially increase stakeholder value.

The technical reports for the Company’s material projects are available on Orla’s website at, and on SEDAR+ and EDGAR under the Company’s profile at and, respectively.


Non-GAAP Measures


The Company has included certain performance measures in this news release which are not specified, defined, or determined under generally accepted accounting principles (in the Company’s case, International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”)). These are common performance measures in the gold mining industry, but because they do not have any mandated standardized definitions, they may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Accordingly, the Company uses such measures to provide additional information and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. In this section, all currency figures in tables are in millions, except per-share and per-ounce amount.


Net Cash


Net cash is calculated as cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments less total debt at the end of the reporting period. This measure is used by management to measure the Company’s debt leverage. The Company believes that net cash is useful in evaluating the Company’s leverage and is also a key metric in determining the cost of debt. 


NET CASH Jun 30, 2024 Dec 31, 2023
Cash and cash equivalents $   154.3 $     96.6
Long term debt (78.4) (88.4)
NET CASH $     75.9 $       8.2




Liquidity is calculated as the sum of cash and cash equivalents, short-term Investments, and undrawn amounts available under the Company’s revolving credit facility. Liquidity does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The Company believes that liquidity is useful to evaluate the Company’s ability to meet its short -term obligations as they come due.
