Stocks in this article: GAM GRS

TORONTO, May 16 /PRNewswire/ - G ammon Gold Inc. (TSX: GAM)  (NYSE: GRS), ("Gammon") announced today that it intends to change its corporate name to AuRico Gold (pronounced oh-REE-koh). The name change is subject to shareholder approval at the Company's Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders scheduled for June 9, 2011 and is expected to be effective on, or about, June 13, 2011.

The Company's Toronto Stock Exchange and its New York Stock Exchange ticker symbol will change to "AUQ" to reflect the new name, representing gold equivalent. The Company will also launch a new website, www.auricogold.com and a new logo.

The AuRico Gold name combines two words representative of the company: "Au," the atomic symbol for gold, and "rico," a Spanish word meaning rich. The AuRico logo features the ancient alchemy symbol for gold, which dates back over 1,000 years.
