HALIFAX, Canada, June 3, 2010 - Gammon Gold Inc. ("Gammon") (TSX:GAM and NYSE:GRS): announces an
illegal labour disruption launched by unionized mine workers is in progress
at its El Cubo mine located in Guanajuato State, Mexico. The unionized
workers are barring contract workers and union members from entering the El
mine site. Although no official notice has been provided by the union,
the Company understands that the unionized workers took this action due to
a dispute over profit sharing substitution arrangements. Operations at the
Peregrina mine, which is located within the El Cubo mine complex, have not
been impacted.

A work stoppage of this nature violates both the Collective Agreement
as well as Mexican Labour Law. Management is disappointed that proper
process has not been followed by the union and an illegal action of this
nature has been instigated. Management is actively managing the situation
and reviewing all avenues of potential legal recourse.
