The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the Company's failure to disclose during the Class Period that overly aggressive expansion of Gold Resource's underground mining operations in the first quarter of 2012 had created operational difficulties lowering mine production, that Gold Resource was mining in lower grade zones of the deposit because of an unfilled need to upgrade electric power throughout the mine, expand ventilation and enhance handling ground water, and that in the third quarter of 2012, a dispute had arisen between the Company and the buyer of its metal concentrates, with the buyer claiming net adjustments (reductions) to the Company's provisional third quarter 2012 invoices. According to the complaint, after, on July 19, 2012, the Company announced that preliminary production results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012, stating that the Company's second quarter production was lower than expected and the Company was dramatically slashing guidance for fiscal years 2012 and 2013, and after, on October 17, 2012, announced preliminary production results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012, reporting additional reasons for the Company's now lower than expected third quarter 2012 results, the value of Gold Resource shares declined significantly.
If you choose to retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your choice. You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.
