TORONTO, March 10, 2011 - Gammon Gold Inc. ("Gammon" or the "Company") (TSX: GAM) and (NYSE:GRS)
wishes to provide an update on recent activities at the El Cubo mine. As
previously announced on February 23, the labour disruption at the El Cubo
mine was successfully resolved after a more productive and standardized
Collective Agreement was negotiated with the union.

Since February 22, management regained access to the mine facilities and
immediately began an exhaustive infrastructural and ground control assessment
to develop an operations plan that would allow production to recommence as
soon as possible. This review has been completed and mine conditions were
found to be better than originally anticipated such that the Company fully
expects to begin development work in April.

As part of the operations plan, the rehiring process is largely completed
with over 250 workers undergoing a two week common core training program at
the University of Guanajuato. Once finished, they will immediately be
assigned to the mining workforce at El Cubo.

"We are delighted with the progress we have made in such a short time
period and that mine conditions were better than we had expected. We
anticipate taking delivery of the majority of required operating supplies
later next week and we began moving non-utilized underground mining equipment
that had been previously stored at Ocampo during the labour disruption back
to El Cubo." stated Russell Tremayne, Chief Operating Officer. He continued,
"Additionally, we believe that the training programs will ultimately foster a
work environment that supports both higher productivity and underpins our
dedication to safety."

On March 28, 2011, the Company will provide a more definitive timeline on
when production will recommence as well as an updated operational strategy.
