 -- Published: Tuesday, 31 October 2017 | Print  | Disqus 

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwired - Oct 31, 2017) - Gold Resource Corporation (NYSE American: GORO) (the "Company or GRC") reported production results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017 of 6,465 ounces of gold and 392,153 ounces of silver, which along with base metal revenue generated $31.1 million in net revenue and $4.6 million in net income for the quarter. Gold Resource Corporation is a gold and silver producer, developer and explorer with operations in Oaxaca, Mexico and Nevada, U.S.A. The Company has returned $110 million to its shareholders in monthly dividends since commercial production commenced July 1, 2010, and offers its shareholders the option to convert their cash dividends into physical gold and silver and take delivery.


  • $4.6 million net income, or $0.08 per share
  • $31.1 million net sales
  • 6,465 gold ounces produced
  • 392,153 silver ounces produced
  • $2 total cash cost per gold equivalent ounce sold (after by-product credits)
  • $639 total all-in sustaining cost per precious metal gold equivalent ounce sold
  • $18.0 million base metal by-product credits, or $1,707 per precious metal gold ounce sold
  • $0.3 million dividend distributions, or $0.005 per share for quarter
  • $15.8 million cash and cash equivalents

Overview of Q3 2017 Results

Gold Resource Corporation's Aguila Project sold 10,573 precious metal gold equivalent ounces at a total cash cost of $2 per ounce (after by-product credits), benefiting from strong base metal production and sales. Average realized metal prices during the quarter included $1,289 per ounce gold and $17.00 per ounce silver*. The Company recorded net income of $4.6 million, or $0.08 per share. The Company paid $0.3 million to its shareholders in dividends, or $0.005 per share during the quarter. Cash and cash equivalents at quarter end totaled $15.8 million.

Production totals for the first nine months of 2017 included 18,908 ounces of gold, 1,217,713 ounces of silver, 804 tonnes of copper, 3,583 tonnes of lead and 11,447 tonnes of zinc. The Company maintains its 2017 Annual Outlook, targeting a plus or minus 5 percent production of 27,500 gold ounces and 1,850,000 silver ounces.

* Average realized metal prices include final settlement adjustments for previously unsettled provisional sales. Provisional sales may remain unsettled from one quarter into the next. Realized prices will therefore vary from average spot metal market prices upon final settlement.

The following Production and Sales Statistics table summarizes certain information about our mining operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016:

(1) For the third quarter of 2017 and 2016 and first nine months of 2017 and 2016, this includes 2,108, 11,459, 42,079, and 38,764 tonnes, respectively of open pit ore.
(2) Based on actual days the mill operated during the period.
(3) Mill production represents metal contained in concentrates produced at the mill, which is before payable metal deductions are levied by the buyer of our concentrates. Payable metal deduction quantities are defined in our contracts with the buyer of our concentrates and represent an estimate of metal contained in the concentrates which the buyer deducts from payment. There are inherent limitations and differences in the sampling method and assaying of estimated metal contained in concentrates that are shipped, and those contained metal estimates are derived from sampling methods and assaying throughout the mill production process. We monitor these differences to ensure that precious metal mill production quantities are materially correct.
(4) Average metal prices realized vary from the market metal prices due to final settlement adjustments from our provisional invoices when they are settled. Our average metal prices realized will therefore differ from the market average metal prices in most cases.
(5) For a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to total mine cost of sales, which is the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure, please see Non-GAAP Measures in the Company's most recently filed 10-Q.
