Gold Resource Corporation Announces Preliminary First Quarter Production Results

Gold Resource Corporation Announces Preliminary First Quarter Production Results

Gold Resource Corporation (NYSE American: GORO) (the “Company”) announces its preliminary first quarter results that includes the sale of 3,557 ounces of gold and 216,535 ounces of silver resulting in total gold equivalent (“AuEq”) ounces of 5,965. Additionally, the company sold 1,682 tonnes of zinc, 264 tonnes of copper, and 667 tonnes of lead.

“During the first quarter we continued our process to identify and implement opportunities for cost reductions and operational efficiencies in order to improve profitability. We are also moving forward with our 2024 drill program with the purpose of increasing our resources and reserves that could lead to future production improvements.” stated Allen Palmiere, President and CEO. “The Mexican peso has continued to remain strong against the US dollar, but we have seen substantial increases in the metals prices that are more than offsetting the impact of the exchange rate. With the enhancements we are making with our operations and the improvements we are seeing in the metal prices, we are moving in the right direction.”

(2) Based on actual days the mill operated during the period.
(3) The difference between what we report as "Metal Production" and "Metal Sold" is attributable to the difference between the quantities of metals contained in the concentrates we produce versus the portion of those metals actually paid for according to the terms of our sales contracts. Differences can also arise from inventory changes related to shipping schedules, or variances in ore grades and recoveries which impact the amount of metals contained in concentrates produced and sold.
