Alberto Reyes, of ……………. Kitchener, Ontario, Canada ………
The Company wishes to employ the Executive and the Executive wishes to accept such employment; and
The parties have agreed on the terms and conditions of employment set out below.
NOW THEREFORE THIS AGREEMENT WITNESSES that in consideration of the premises and the covenants and agreements herein contained, including, without limitation, the change in control provisions herein, the parties agree as follows:
The Company agrees to employ the Executive as Chief Operating Officer (“COO”) pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
2.Effective Date and Term
Subject to the termination provisions set out in this Agreement, this Agreement will be for an indefinite term (the “Term”) and commencing May 20, 2021 (the “Effective Date”).
The Executive will have all duties traditionally assigned to a COO.
In addition, the Executive will provide COO and other management services for Gold Resource Corporation (“GORO”), a company incorporated under the laws of Colorado and having an office at 2000 South Colorado Boulevard, Suite 10200, Denver, Colorado,
- 2 -
80222, pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of a Management Services Agreement between the Company and GORO (the “Services Agreement).
The Executive will devote Executive’s full working time and attention to the business affairs of Company and will not engage in any other employment, consulting or business activity without the express written consent of the Board. Nothing in this Agreement shall be interpreted to prevent the Executive from providing COO services, exclusively on behalf of and through the Company, to GORO pursuant to the Services Agreement. During the Term, the Executive will not, directly or indirectly, through any other person or entity, on her own account, or as an employee, independent contractor, agent, principal, consultant, partner, owner, officer, director, manager or stockholder of any other person, partnership, corporation or other entity, engage in services for any company other than GORO or engage in services on behalf of or through any person or entity other than the Company.
In addition, the Company consents to the Executive continuing with the directorships set out in Schedule “A” provided that such directorships do not conflict with the terms of this Agreement including section 7. The Executive will use best efforts, skills and abilities to promote the best interests of the Company and perform the duties set out herein honestly, in good faith and to the best of Executive’s abilities.
The Executive will, as a senior officer of the Company, owe a duty of good faith and honesty and a fiduciary duty to the Company and will use best efforts to perform Executive’s duties competently and efficiently. By acting on behalf of and through the Company in providing services to GORO, Executive’s good faith and fiduciary duties extend to the Executive’s work for GORO.
The Executive acknowledges that the Company will maintain certain policies relating to the conduct of employees and relating to other matters. The parties agree that the introduction, administration, amendment and deletion of those policies is within the sole discretion of the Company, reasonably exercised, and that the Executive will comply with those policies that are brought to Executive’s attention and as apply to senior management, including while Executive provides COO services to GORO through and on behalf of the Company.
The Company will pay to the Executive an annual salary of US$ 310,000 (the “Salary”), payable in arrears and in Canadian dollars, subject to the normal statutory deductions and in accordance with the Company’s normal payroll schedule. The Company will review the Executive’s Salary each year and may, at its discretion, increase the Salary.
In addition to the Salary, the Executive will be eligible to receive an annual bonus (the “Bonus”), comprised of both STIP and LTIP as described below. The Board will establish, after consultation with Executive, within the first 2 months of each year, bonus terms under which the Executive shall have the opportunity to earn a target bonus based on 40% of base salary (the “Target STIP”) and a discretionary long-term equity-based incentive bonus of $250,000 per annum (the “Target LTIP”). Executive targets are currently being reviewed
- 3 -
by a Compensation Consultant. Once the compensation philosophy is defined, this employment agreement may be amended with target STIP and LTIP terms. There is potential to earn a higher amount if Executive materially exceeds defined targets. The Target LTIP composition is of Stock Options, RSUs and any other long-term equity performance instrument the Board decides to implement at a future date. The Board will discuss the performance of the Executive with the Executive prior to determining the amount of the Bonus for each year. Bonus shall be payable not later than three months following the end of the year. Except as expressly stated otherwise in this Agreement, effective on the date the Executive receives or gives notice of termination of employment, Executive shall not be entitled to receive any further Bonus, other than Bonus in respect of a year which has ended prior to the date such notice is delivered.
GORO has adopted compensation recoupment policy or policies (and related practices), including, but not limited to, any policy or policies that may be adopted in response to applicable law (each, a “Clawback Policy”). The Services Agreement requires the Company to assist GORO in complying with each Clawback Policy and the provisions of applicable law. The Services Agreement further permits GORO to recover payments to the Company when the payment would be subject to return under the Clawback Policies or applicable law if it had been paid directly to an employee of GORO. By signing this Agreement, Executive agrees to fully cooperate with the Company in assuring compliance with the Clawback Policies and the provisions of applicable law, including, but not limited to, promptly returning any compensation subject to recovery by GORO pursuant to the Services Agreement.
5.Benefits and Vacation
During the Term, the Executive will be entitled to participate in such benefits as the Company makes available to its employees, including any available only to senior executives (collectively, the “Benefits”), subject to the terms of any insured Benefits and the conditions of any other Benefits. The Company reserves the right to replace, change or discontinue Benefits, and to change the carrier of the Benefits, the cost-sharing of Benefits and/or the terms of such Benefits from time to time without advance notice.
The Executive will be entitled to four weeks of annual paid vacation for each calendar year of the Term (pro-rated for part years) to be taken at times approved in advance by the CEO or his/her designate. The Executive shall be entitled to carry forward no more than one year of annual vacation entitlement from year to year, subject to taking statutory minimum vacation entitlements.
During the Term, the Company will reimburse the Executive for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses actually incurred by Executive in connection with Executive’s duties, whether the expenses are for the Company or for GORO, and in accordance with the Company’s expense policy, which may be amended from time to time without notice to the Executive.
During the Term, the Company will reimburse the Executive for purchasing the equipment and supplies necessary to his work, including a cell phone, laptop computer, desktop computer, printer and scanner.
- 4 -
The Company will make reasonable efforts to obtain and maintain a policy of insurance with respect to liability relating to its directors and officers, and the Company will use its reasonable best efforts to include the Executive (in his capacity as an officer) as insured under such policy to the maximum extent reasonably possible effective on the Effective Date and if obtained, will provide the Executive with a copy of such policy with the Executive being so included as an insured. The Company shall be responsible for the payment of all premiums, deductibles and like payments under such policy.
Effective on the Effective Date, the Company will enter into a director and officer indemnification agreement with the Executive in a form satisfactory to the Executive, acting reasonably. The indemnification agreement will provide indemnification to the Executive for (a) Executive’s conduct as an officer of the Company and (b) COO services that Executive provides to GORO on behalf of and through the Company. The Company will obtain an agreement from GORO to indemnify the Company in the event that the Company is required to indemnify the Executive for services he provides to GORO on behalf of and through the Company.

The Company may terminate the Executive’s employment hereunder, without notice or pay in lieu of notice, at any time for just cause. Just cause will include, but not be limited to:
a material breach of this Agreement or gross negligence or incompetence of the Executive in the discharge of Executive’s duties under this Agreement;

In the event that Executive is terminated with just cause, the Company shall pay his for Salary and Benefits up to the day of termination.
The Company may, at any time, terminate the Executive’s employment without cause by providing the Executive with a lump sum severance payment equal to the total amount of the Executive’s Salary and Prorated Bonus for the Severance Period (the “Lump Sum Severance Payment”). The Company shall pay the Executive the Lump Sum Severance Payment within five days of the date of termination. For the purpose of calculating the Lump Sum Severance Payment:
The Salary is the Executive’s most recent annual Salary described above in section 4.1;
The “Prorated Bonus” shall be calculated by dividing the amount of Bonus paid to the Executive for the previous bonus year by twelve and multiplying such amount by the number of months in the applicable Severance Period. If termination occurs before any Bonus award has been made, the Executive’s Target Bonus shall be used to calculate the Prorated Bonus; and
- 8 -
The “Severance Period” is as follows:
during the first twelve (12) months of employment, the Severance Period is twelve (12) months; and
thereafter, the Severance Period shall be twelve (12) months plus another month for each completed year of service from the Effective Date to an overall maximum of eighteen (18) months
The Company will continue Benefits for the Severance Period, provided that, for any insured Benefits that cannot be continued over the Severance Period, compensation in lieu of such Benefit continuance equal to the premium paid by the Company for these benefits shall be paid to the Executive.
(The Lump Sum Severance Package and the continuation of benefits shall be referred to collectively as the “Severance”).
The Executive shall be entitled to resign for “Good Reason” (as defined below) and receive the Severance if the Company has not substantially remedied such Good Reason within 14 days of delivery by the Executive to the Company of written notice stating that Executive intends to resign based on such Good Reason. Such notice shall specify the facts relied upon as Good Reason. “Good Reason” means the occurrence of any of the following events without the Executive’s written consent:
a material breach of this Agreement by the Company;
a material reduction in the Executive’s responsibilities, title or reporting, except as a result of the Executive’s disability;
any reduction by the Company in the Executive’s Salary, Target STIP, or Target LTIP, other than as part of a general reduction of compensation for all executive and senior managers due to the Company’s financial condition and provided such reduction is in the same proportion as for such other affected employees;
relocation of the Executive’s principal office location more than 25 kilometres; and
any other reason that would be considered to constitute constructive dismissal at common law.
If the Company terminates the Executive’s employment without cause or the Executive terminates employment for Good Reason (other than within 12 months of a Change in Control, or in connection with an impending Change in Control), the Executive’s stock options, RSUs and Benefits will be governed by the terms of the Company’s stock option plan, the related grant agreement(s), RSU and Benefits plan as amended from time to time.

and Benefits will be governed by the terms of the Company’s stock option plan, RSU and Benefits plan as amended from time to time.
For the purpose of this Agreement, “Change in Control” shall be defined as:

the consummation of a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or the consummation of a reorganization, merger or other transaction which has substantially the same effect; or
a merger, consolidation, plan of arrangement or reorganization of the Company that results in the beneficial, direct or indirect transfer of more than 50% of the total voting power of the resulting entity’s outstanding securities to a person, or group of persons acting jointly and in concert, who are different from the person that have, beneficially, directly or indirectly, more than 50% of the total voting power prior to such transaction; or

provided, however, that a Change in Control shall not be deemed to have occurred if such Change in Control results from:
the issuance, in connection with a bona fide financing or series of financings by GORO or the Company or any of its Affiliates, of voting securities of GORO or the Company or any of its Affiliates or any rights to acquire voting securities of GORO or the Company or any of its Affiliates which are convertible into voting securities; or
