Gammon Gold Announces Corporate Name Change To AuRico Gold

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, 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.

"Over the past three years, the new management team has dedicated considerable effort in repositioning the Company for success. Today we are a leading intermediate gold and silver producer with a diversified portfolio of high quality mines and projects, an exciting growth profile and a strong balance sheet," said René Marion, President and CEO of Gammon Gold. "Our new name and logo reflect our renewed commitment as we build upon our successes and enrich shareholder value through continued operational excellence and growth. Management is extremely enthusiastic to launch our new name as it represents a new beginning and a new chapter in the Company's history."
