FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE NEWS
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 03/18/2015 – – Gold Resource Corporation (NYSE MKT: GORO) (the Company) announced today it has commenced its first drill campaign at its Radar gold property located in Mineral and Nye Counties, Nevada. Gold Resource Corporation is a gold and silver producer with operations in Oaxaca, Mexico and exploration in Nevada, USA. The Company has returned over $102 million to shareholders in monthly dividends since commercial production July 1, 2010, and offers shareholders the option to convert their cash dividends into physical gold and silver and take delivery.
The Radar project covers an area of approximately 3,550 acres in central Nevada in the Walker Lane Mineral Belt. Radar is immediately adjacent to the formerly producing gold-silver-mercury Paradise Peak Mine, near the Round Mountain and Rawhide Mines, which together have produced over 15 million ounces of gold over a thirty year period. At Radar, a suite of geologic features and physicochemical conditions are present for the formation of both replacement-type and bonanza-grade vein-type gold deposits.
The initial drill program at Radar will consist of approximately 2,000 meters of core drilling in approximately 6 to 8 holes, targeting anomalous gold and mercury–bearing structures along a more than two kilometer trend coinciding with numerous historic mercury mines and prospects.
The Company acquired the Radar property in the form of a lease with an option to buy in September 2014 from Altan Nevada Minerals Limited (TSXV:ANE) (Altan), and has spent significant time mapping and sampling to refine targets for this initial drill campaign. The Radar property is largely unexplored with only four historic holes drilled by Altan on the 3,550 acre property.
Gold Resource Corporation’s Vice President of Exploration, Mr. Barry Devlin stated, “We are excited to begin this initial phase of drilling at our Radar property. Our goal at Radar is to discover a new gold and silver deposit similar to Paradise Peak, which is located only four kilometers away.”
