Gold Resource Corporation Expands Switchback Discovery Mineralization

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Gold Resource Corporation (NYSE MKT: GORO) (the "Company") today provided an update on the Switchback discovery drill highlights at its El Aguila Project in Mexico. Gold Resource Corporation is a gold and silver producer with operations in the southern state of Oaxaca, Mexico. The Company has returned over $95 million to shareholders in monthly dividends since declaring production July 1, 2010, and offers shareholders the option to convert their cash dividends into physical gold and silver and take delivery.

The new "Switchback" discovery, announced in June 2013, is located on the Company's El Aguila Project approximately 500 meters northeast of the Company's producing La Arista polymetallic (gold, silver, and base metals) underground mine (see maps). Step-out drilling continues to expand the high-grade mineralization, which is now explored 450 meters along strike by 450 at depth, containing significant gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc. The Company continues to drill step-out and infill holes at Switchback with hopes of further expanding the known mineralized area.

"We are pleased with the continued expansion of the Switchback mineralization," stated Gold Resource Corporation's CEO and President, Mr. Jason Reid. "We continue to drill this high priority target and are optimistic we may make a development decision for Switchback in the near term. Preliminary mine planning has begun with conceptual plans to access the Switchback mineralization from the producing underground Arista mine."

Barry Devlin, Vice President of Exploration for Gold Resource Corporation commented, "The new gold, silver and base metals discovery at Switchback was the success story of our 2013 drilling program at the El Aguila Project. Since the first hole, we knew the Switchback zone had excellent potential because of its similarities to our Arista vein system where we are currently producing. Switchback is a 40 to 100 meter wide alteration zone containing numerous mineralized veins associated with rhyolite dikes and hosted in andesite, similar to what we see at Arista. Switchback is also open in all directions, which increases the potential for additional high-grade discoveries."
