Early Warrant Exercise Incentive Program to Commence June 13, 2019

As previously announced on May 14, 2019, the Early Warrant Exercise Incentive Program ("Incentive Program") for the 6,737,500 warrants outstanding having an exercise price of $0.62 and expiring on July 8, 2021 (the "2021 Warrants") will begin on June 13, 2019. The Incentive Program is designed to encourage the early exercise of the unlisted 2021 Warrants during a 30-day early exercise period (the "Incentive Period") ending on July 12, 2019.

Under the Incentive Program, holders of the 2021 Warrants (the "Warrantholders") will be entitled to receive one full new warrant (the "Incentive Warrant") upon the exercise of each 2021 Warrant during the Incentive Period. Each Incentive Warrant will be exercisable into one common share of Orla at a price of $1.65 for a period of 3 years, expiring on June 12, 2022.

Each Warrantholder of record will be receiving additional information regarding the Incentive Program in the coming days.

For further details regarding this program and the use of proceeds, please refer to the news release dated May 14, 2019 and the management information circular dated May 9, 2019.

The Incentive Warrants, the underlying securities issuable upon exercise of the Incentive Warrants, the 2021 Warrants and the underlying common shares issued upon exercise of the 2021 Warrants have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be exercised, as applicable, or offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, United States persons absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

Orla has determined that while the Incentive Program may be a related party transaction pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), Orla is not required to obtain a formal valuation under subsection 5.4(1) of MI 61-101 or minority approval under subsection 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 because pursuant to the exemptions set forth in MI 61-101, neither the fair market value nor the fair market value of the consideration paid for the 2021 Warrants exceeds 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
