Gold Resource Corporation Increases Third Quarter Production by 87%

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwire - Oct 6, 2011) - Gold Resource Corporation (NYSE Amex: GORO) confirms its record production forecast for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011 with preliminary production results of approximately 25,200 ounces precious metal gold equivalent (AuEq), which is the highest number of quarterly ounces produced to date and is approximately an 87% increase from the previous quarter. Gold Resource Corporation is a low-cost gold producer with operations in the southern state of Oaxaca, Mexico. The Company has returned over $28 million to shareholders in monthly dividends since declaring commercial production July 1, 2010.

Gold Resource Corporation's 87% production increase keeps it in line with the current annual target of 60,000 to 70,000 ounces AuEq for 2011. The level of production during the third quarter represents a current annual run rate of over 100,000 AuEq ounces. Continued mill optimization of metallurgical recovery and increasing average head grades from the Arista Mine contributed to these record production levels.

"We are excited by these developments and will release the full financial results for the third quarter at the time we file our quarterly report with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The El Aguila Project and the hard work of its team members continue to impress management each month. We look forward to a strong finish for 2011 and to a significant continued production ramp up for 2012 targeting 140,000 ounces of precious metal gold equivalent," stated Gold Resource Corporation's President, Mr. Jason Reid. "We are well positioned on an exciting production and cash flow trajectory."
