Gold Resource Corporation previously announced drill results in March 2013 from a new zone expanding the Arista vein system named Splay 5. The Company continues to explore this highly prospective vein and reports additional high grade mineralization from drilling (see map). Splay 5 has now been drilled over 250 meters vertical extent with mineralization remaining “open” in both strike and at depth. The Company’s mine development is currently drifting towards Splay 5 and expects to begin mining this mineralization during the second half of 2013.

“The drill results of 1.7 percent silver and 10.7 grams gold over half a meter within a wider 4.7 meter mineralized intercept of 2.6 kilograms per tonne silver and 3 grams per tonne gold speaks for itself,” stated Gold Resource Corporation’s President, Mr. Jason Reid. “I will add to those exciting grades that the continued vein continuity and mineralization at Splay 5 support our belief the Arista vein system is high-grade, powerful and has potential to grow substantially.”

The Company has preliminarily targeted Splay 5 to begin to contribute to production during the third or fourth quarter of 2013.
