Gold Resource Corporation Increases Gold Reserves by 135% Announcing Maiden Mineral Reserve for Isabella Pearl Gold Project, Mineral County, Nevada

 -- Published: Thursday, 19 April 2018 | Print  | Disqus 

COLORADO SPRINGS, April 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gold Resource Corporation (NYSE American: GORO) (the “Company”) today announced its maiden mineral reserve for the Isabella Pearl gold project located in Mineral County, Nevada, increasing its Company-wide gold reserves by 135%. Gold Resource Corporation is a gold and silver producer, developer and explorer with operations in Oaxaca, Mexico and Nevada, USA.  The Company has returned $110 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.

Proven and probable reserves included in the Isabella Pearl reserve report (with a drill data cutoff date of December 31, 2017) include 2,694,500 tonnes grading 2.22 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 13 g/t silver, equating to 192,600 gold ounces and 1,129,100 silver ounces (see table below).  When combined with the Oaxaca Mining Unit’s December 31, 2017 mineral reserve, Company-wide proven and probable reserve tonnes now total 5,195,600, an increase of 108%, while gold ounces in the proven and probable category total 335,000, an increase of 135%.

“We are very pleased to release our initial reserve report for the Isabella Pearl gold project,” stated Mr. Barry Devlin, Vice President of Exploration for Gold Resource Corporation.  “The impressive gold grades for a potential open pit heap leach operation at Isabella Pearl is what first attracted our Company to this project.  An average gold grade of 2.22 grams per tonne combined with positive metallurgy exceeding 80 percent crushed rock gold recovery have the potential to make this a very exciting open pit, heap leach project.”

“Our reserve for the Isabella Pearl gold project clearly demonstrates the potential positive impact this project could have on shareholder value once unlocked by production,” stated Mr. Jason Reid, President and CEO of Gold Resource Corporation.  “Increasing our gold reserves by 135% with this project will be an important driver of Gold Resource Corporation’s future revenues and growth profile which includes targeting a more than 100% increase to our annual gold production once Isabella Pearl is fully operational.  We are excited to be in the final stages of permitting and are optimistic that 2018 will be an exciting year of mine construction at Isabella Pearl.”

Notes to the Isabella Pearl P&P reserves:

  1. Metal prices used for P&P reserves were $1,222 per ounce of gold and $16.62 per ounce of silver.  These prices reflect the three-year trailing average prices for gold and silver.
  2. The quantities of material within the designed pits were calculated using a cutoff grade of 0.61 Au g/t for Crushed ore and 0.38 Au g/t for Run-of-Mine (ROM) ore.
  3. Mining, processing, energy, administrative and smelting/refining costs were based on first quarter 2018 cost estimates used for the Isabella Pearl Project feasibility study.
  4. Metallurgical gold recovery assumptions used were 81% for Crushed ore and 60% for ROM ore.  These recoveries reflect predicted average recoveries from metallurgical test programs.
  5. Silver is an economic mineral of interest but only a minor amount will be recovered.  Silver recoveries were not considered in the Isabella Pearl Project feasibility study.
  6. P&P reserves are diluted and factored for expected mining recovery.
  7. Figures in tables are rounded to reflect estimate precision and small differences generated by rounding are not material to estimates.

The full reserve report and feasibility study will be available in the near future from the Company’s website using the following link:  http://goldresourcecorp.com/reserve-reports.php
