COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2013) - Gold Resource Corporation (NYSE MKT: GORO) (the "Company") declares its monthly dividend for April 2013 payable on May 23, 2013 to shareholders of record as of May 13, 2013.

Gold Resource Corporation is a low-cost gold producer with operations in the southern state of Oaxaca, Mexico. The Company has returned over $81 million to shareholders in monthly dividends since declaring commercial production July 1, 2010, and offers shareholders the option to convert their cash dividends into physical gold and silver and take delivery.
The Board of Directors approved a modification of the Company's instituted monthly dividend from $0.06 per share per month to $0.03 per share per month for now. Considerations for the decrease in the instituted dividend included the recent and dramatic market pullback in the spot price of physical gold and silver, which may reduce the Company's future net revenues.

The funniest part of the dividend cut is how the perpetual longs like Jim and Nanette Reeves and BarStupid, who have devoted hundreds of hours analalyzing SORO, refused to even consider that the upstanding Reids might pull the chair out from under them. The Reids even signaled this cut was coming, but they refused to process the warning. Clueless bagholders.
Then there is Always Wrongadeus worshipping the magical powers of the treasury depleting dividend. Ignoring the treasury depletion.......good strategy Wrongy. SORO has been a disaster in the making for two years now...maybe the cultists will finally open their eyes. At least David Reid bailed at the right time.
