Gold Resource Corporation Shareholder Update

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2011) - Gold Resource Corporation (NYSE Amex: GORO) updates shareholders on third quarter production and formal resource report progress. Gold Resource Corporation is a low-cost gold producer with operations in southern Mexico. The Company has returned over $24.6 million to shareholders in special monthly dividends since declaring commercial production July 1, 2010.

Production and optimization at the Aguila Project is progressing well for the first two months of the third quarter. The combination of increasing ore grades, increasing mill throughput and increasing recoveries has resulted in mineral production for the third quarter to date surpassing the second quarter production totals. We remain at our current targeted production range for the year 2011 of 60,000 to 70,000 precious metal gold equivalent ounces.

"Our team is doing an excellent job and we are very proud of their continued mill optimizations, mine development and overall accomplishments," stated the Company's President, Mr. Jason Reid. "Presuming mill optimization and throughput levels continue during September, we could potentially see substantial production growth in the third quarter. As we have stated before, our production growth is primarily a function of mine development, increasing the number of working stopes and the buildup of underground ore stockpiles."

Gold Resource Corporation continues its progress towards an industry standard formal resource report having engaged the experienced Denver, Colorado-based engineering firm of Pincock Allen & Holt (PAH). A standardized NI 43-101 Technical Report would be necessary if the Company decides to pursue a secondary listing of its securities on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX). PAH has been to the Aguila Project and has approved the Company's Quality Assurance/Quality Control procedures, which include independent assaying, and found them to be acceptable and to industry norms. Other factors for the Technical Report have been approved, including but not limited to, density factors, drill spacing necessary for Measured, Indicated and Inferred categories, and modeling parameters. Continued NI 43-101 confirmation drilling is being carried out by three drills at the Arista vein system. Drill rig priority is given to the Company's exploration department for continued Arista mine development for production; however, the primary drilling and sampling is being used for the determination of Mineral Resources for the NI 43-101 Technical Report. The report's estimated completion date has yet to be determined, though the Company is targeting completion by the end of the year.
