Gold Resource Corporation (GORO) Investor Lawsuit Against Directors Announced by Shareholders Foundation

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 19, 2013) - The Shareholders Foundation, Inc. announces that an investor in shares of Gold Resource Corporation (GORO) filed a lawsuit against certain directors and officers of Gold Resource Corporation over alleged breaches of fiduciary duty, abuse of control, and gross mismanagement.

The plaintiff alleges the defendants' actions have caused, and will continue to cause substantial financial and reputational damage to Gold Resource Corporation.

The company is engaged in the exploration for and production of gold and silver. The plaintiff claims that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties owed to Gold Resource Corporation and its shareholders by causing the Company to release allegedly false and misleading statements regarding the production at the El Aguila project, which is the only property that currently produces gold, overbilling customers for product that the Company never delivered and failing to implement adequate internal financial controls.

On July 19, 2012, according to the lawsuit, defendants finally permitted Gold Resource Corporation to make a partial disclosure, which revealed some of the production issues at the El Aguila project. Finally, according to the plaintiff, on November 8, 2012, defendants acknowledged that their statements were in fact materially false and misleading.

Shares of Gold Resource Corporation declined from as high as $27.46 in February 2012 to as low as recently under $14 per share.

Those who are current long term stockholders of Gold Resource Corporation shares, have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation, Inc. by e-mail at or call +1 (858) 779-1554.
