In other news, Gold Resource is nearing the completion of its first underground drill station on the north-east side of the Switchback vein system.

The station will offer shorter drill distances and allow Gold Resource’s team to drill untested targets east and north-east of the current Switchback system.

Development of the Arista mine began in 2009, and initial production from the deposits started in March of 2011. The Arista deposit consists of two distinct vein systems- the Arista and the Switchback.

Gold Resource, which has operations in Oaxaca, Mexico and Nevada, has returned US$111mln to its shareholders in monthly dividends since its production efforts began in July of 2010. It offers shareholders the option to convert their cash dividends into physical gold and silver.

The company is maintaining its annual production outlook this year of 27,000 gold ounces and 1.7mln silver ounces, give or take 10%.
