DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / April 19, 2021 / Gold Resource Corporation (NYSE American:GORO) (the "Company") today announced preliminary first quarter 2021 production results.
Allen Palmiere, President and CEO, said "My first quarter at Gold Resource Corporation has reinforced my initial impressions of our Mexican Operations and the ability of the operations team to be nimble and disciplined operators. Gold production in the first quarter was as expected while silver and base metal production were modestly behind forecast as the team proactively addressed challenging ground conditions with a change in mine sequencing and the use of paste fill. We remain confident in our annual production guidance for gold equivalent ounces. Our Cash Costs after by-product credits and All-in Sustaining Costs per ounce have declined significantly since year-end, due largely to a greater than 30% reduction in treatment charges. Our operations' personnel continue to manage the COVID-19 pandemic well with the safety and health of our employees, contractors and communities being our top priority."
The Company's Oaxaca Mining Unit produced 5,019 payable gold ounces and 253,061 payable silver ounces during the first quarter of 2021. Preliminary first quarter base metal production included 382 tonnes of payable copper, 1,176 tonnes of payable lead and 3,134 tonnes of payable zinc.
