Gold Resource Corporation Commences Mining Arista Vein System

Hires Mexico Country Manager

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - November 23, 2010) - Gold Resource Corporation (GORO) (NYSE Amex: GORO) is pleased to announce the commencement of underground mining and stockpiling of its La Arista deposit ore at the Company's El Aguila Project. The Company is also pleased to announce the hiring of Mr. Juan Manuel Flores as Mexico Country Manager. Gold Resource Corporation is a low-cost gold producer with operations in the southern state of Oaxaca, Mexico.

Gold Resource Corporation's polymetallic Arista vein deposit contains high-grade gold and silver mineralization with by-product credits of copper, lead and zinc. The Arista Vein system is made up of multiple en echelon veins with the two predominant veins being the Baja and the Arista veins. Both veins have been intercepted and as mine development continues high-grade ore is being stockpiled.

Mr. Juan Manuel Flores joins Gold Resource Corporation as Mexico Country Manager. Mr. Flores has over 30+ years of experience in the mining, metallurgy and construction industries. His experience includes country manager, general manager, operations manager, project manager, mine superintendent of different mines and processing operations, in some of the most productive underground and open pit mines in Mexico. 

Mr. Flores' mining company associations include Minera Rio Tinto SA De CV, Constellation Copper, Pan American Gold Fields, Harrison Western, Mine Finders, Minera Frisco, Industrial Minera Mexico (ex-Asarco), Minas de Bacis, Cozamin, Grupo Mexbel and Groupo Summa. Mr. Flores graduated as a Mining and Metallurgist Engineer from the Universidad Autonoma de Chihuahua and in 1973 and 1974 attended the courses of the Master of Science Program, Mineral Economics, at the Colorado School of Mines. 

Gold Resource Corporation's President, Mr. Jason Reid, stated, "We welcome Mr. Flores as he will complement our excellent team of professionals. We are building a first class underground mine under the expert direction of our Project Manager, Mr. Jorge Sanchez Del Toro, and with the addition of Mr. Flores, in concert with our dedicated staff of professionals, the Company is executing its plan for aggressive growth."

Mr. Jason Reid continued, "Commencement of stockpiling underground Arista ore, in the fourth quarter as planned, is a significant milestone for the El Aquila Project. We are presently mining the Baja vein and developing the Arista vein on the 4th level. Our spiral decline (see photo) will be to level 5 shortly where we will add additional working faces to the mining of the Baja and Arista veins."

"We have asked our team to evaluate an accelerated schedule to process the Arista deposit high-grade polymetallic ore as soon as practicable. We want to process our highest grade ore during this time of historically high metal prices," stated Mr. Jason Reid.
