Gammon Gold Inc. responds to media reports of complaint filed by Midas Funds

    HALIFAX, Aug. 1 /CNW/ - Gammon Gold Inc. (TSX: GAM / AMEX:   GRS)
("Gammon") advises that it has become aware through media reports that Midas
Funds Inc. appears to have filed a complaint with the United States District
Court Southern District of New York claiming damages from Gammon in the amount
of US$3 million. Gammon has not been served with the complaint, believes that
such a complaint would be without merit, and, if served, would vigorously be
defended. Further, the amount of the claim would not be financially material
to the Company and will have no affect on its operations.
