Gold Resource Corporation Sustained Temporary Arista Mine Protest

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwired - May 29, 2015) -  Gold Resource Corporation (NYSE MKT: GORO) (the "Company") announced it sustained an illegal mine protest and work stoppage at its Aguila Project. Gold Resource Corporation is a gold and silver producer with operations in Oaxaca, Mexico and exploration in Nevada, USA. The Company has returned over $104 million to shareholders in monthly dividends since commercial production commenced July 1, 2010, and offers shareholders the option to convert their cash dividends into physical gold and silver and take delivery.

Approximately 80 to 100 union members protested and ultimately blocked access to the Aguila Project's mill and mine on Thursday, May 27. The majority of the Company's 300 plus unionized workers and all of the non-unionized workers chose not to participate in this illegal protest. The protest was in response to the annual employee bonus being less than the year prior, which is a reflection of the continued weakness in precious and base metal prices. The union did not condone or support this illegal protest, therefore technically the action has not been classified as a strike.

The protest has ended and the Company is currently working to return the Aguila Project back to normal operations over the next few days.
