Gold Resource Corporation Drills 132.5 Grams/Tonne Gold (4.26 oz/Tonne Gold) Over 1 Meter at El Rey Property in Oaxaca, Mexico

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - October 17, 2007) - Gold Resource Corporation (GRC) (OTCBB: GORO) (FRANKFURT: GIH) is pleased to announce results from core drilling of 132.5 grams/tonne gold (4.26 oz/tonne gold) over 1 meter at its El Rey property in Oaxaca, Mexico. El Rey is one of the Company's four properties in Oaxaca and initial drilling is yielding high-grade gold vein intercepts. El Rey is located within trucking distance (95 kilometers) of GRC's proposed El Aguila mill. Gold Resource expects to commence production at El Aguila in mid-2008, subject to obtaining remaining permits and regulatory approvals, completing necessary financings and equipment deliveries.

El Rey hole 7810 is located 30 meters east and on strike with previously released hole 7802.

Highlights include:

Hole 7810 (40 deg)

--  1 meter of 132.5 g/t gold, (silver assays pending)

Previously announced highlights include:

Hole 7802 (40 deg)

--  1 meter of 66.40 g/t gold, 86 g/t silver within,
--  9 meters of 19.37 g/t gold, 75 g/t silver

Gold Resource Corporation's President William W. Reid stated, "We believe that the El Rey gold vein is a significant discovery and its shallow depth could facilitate an easy startup for mining. With continued drilling success we will evaluate the potential of blending this high-grade gold ore into our first year production plans at the proposed El Aguila mill."

"We are pleased that this El Rey vein has already yielded the Company's highest grade gold value to date with such limited exploration. This bodes well for its potential," stated Mr. Reid.
