COLORADO SPRINGS, CO–(Marketwired – May 27, 2014) – Gold Resource Corporation (
The Company continues to drill both infill and step-out holes testing the mineralized vein extensions at its producing Arista mine using both underground and surface drills. The Arista deposit is a high-grade polymetallic (gold, silver and base metal) epithermal vein deposit with multiple parallel en echelon veins and splays. The deposit remains open on strike and at depth.
Underground drilling continues to define the extensions of the recently discovered Santa Lucia vein, with Hole #514025 intercepting 2.68 meters of 11.72 grams per tonne gold, 748 grams per tonne silver, 1.68% copper, 2.41% lead and 4.02% zinc. The Santa Lucia vein is a parallel vein structure located approximately 60 meters northeast of the Arista vein on level 14. Underground drilling also expanded the Socorro and Splay 5 veins located at the southwest of the system returning gold grades as high as 22.90 grams per tonne and silver as high as 10,340 grams per tonne (see map).
Surface drilling southwest of the Arista deposit focused on the Aire and Splay 6 veins. Hole #1147011 intercepted the Aire vein with 2.43 meters of 3.85 grams per tonne gold and 681 grams per tonne silver. Hole #1147013 expanded the southern extension of the Aire vein, intercepting 1.41 meters of 3.96 grams per tonne gold and 1,078 grams per tonne silver. Hole #1147020 tested the northern extension of Splay 6 intercepting 2.06 meters of 1.36 grams gold an 813 grams silver.

“We continue to intercept high-grade gold and silver with infill and step-out holes in multiple veins at Arista,” stated Gold Resource Corporation’s CEO and President, Mr. Jason Reid. “I am pleased to see continued step-out intercepts including 2.68 meters of over 11 grams per tonne gold and 748 grams per tonne silver extending Santa Lucia mineralization and 1.41 meters of 3.96 grams per tonne gold and 1,078 grams per tonne silver extending the Aire vein mineralization. We believe we are in a strong position to continue adding ounces to the Arista high-grade polymetallic deposit.”
“In addition to our Arista deposit expansion focus, near term exploration targets include the feeder vein of the Aguila open pit and the Chacal Red Zone both on the El Aguila Project and prospective targets on the Las Margaritas property,” stated Mr. Barry Devlin, Gold Resource Corporation Vice President of Exploration. “With the recently expanded drill budget we are in a stronger position to explore these and other prospective drill targets.”
