Orla Mining acquired the South Railroad Project through its C$242 million acquisition of Gold Standard Ventures in August 2022. The South Railroad Project ("South Railroad") is a feasibility-stage, open pit, heap leach project located on the Carlin trend in Nevada.


Orla's Railroad Pinion Project is located in the Bullion mining district of the southern Carlin trend in Nevada. The property has two adjacent parts, the North Railroad portion, which includes POD, Sweet Hollow, and North Bullion (collectively called the North Bullion deposits, or the North Bullion area), and the South Railroad portion, which includes Dark Star, Pinion, and Jasperoid Wash.

A Feasibility Study on South Railroad was completed in February 2022 and permitting activities are currently underway. Orla has begun integrating South Railroad into the Company's growth plans with key priorities for South Railroad to include project permitting, review of project schedule including critical path activities, and assessment of current exploration supporting resource expansion.
