“Dividends have always been an important component of Gold Resource’s corporate philosophy,” said CEO Jason Reid. “I am very pleased to declare a dividend increase the same month our Nevada Mining Unit declared commercial production as well. Our company has always embraced the expression ‘earnings are opinion, cash is fact,’ and these cash dividends are milestones not many other mining companies ever achieve.”
Reid continued: “With the commercial production announcement at our Nevada Mining Unit’s Isabella Pearl mine earlier this month, and this one hundred percent dividend increase, Gold Resource Corporation has now transformed into a multi-jurisdiction mining company with two mining units contributing to shareholder dividend distributions.”
He also noted that there could be “potential additional dividend increases in the future as well as allocating capital from our expanding operations for the growth of the company by exploring and developing the large property positions the company has amassed at both its mining units.”
Gold Resource Corporation, based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is a gold and silver producer, developer and explorer with operations in Oaxaca, Mexico and Nevada.
