Gryphon Gold Reports Treasury Increase from Exercise of Warrants

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 1, 2009) - Gryphon Gold Corporation (TSX:GGN)(OTCBB:GYPH) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received proceeds of CDN$886,500 from the recent exercise of 4,925,000 amended warrants, increasing the Company's treasury to a total of USD$967,000.

As announced on July 8, 2009, Gryphon Gold amended the terms of the previously issued warrants to provide for an extension of the expiry date and a reduction of the exercise price, entitling the holders to acquire (on exercise) an aggregate of 9,486,500 shares of common stock, representing about 15% of the outstanding common shares (basic). The Company is pleased that more than 50% of these amended warrants have been exercised to date, refreshing the treasury and allowing for the continued advancement of the wholly owned Borealis Oxide Project in Nevada. A Pre-Feasibility Study for the proposed low-cost, open-pit mine, with expected average annual production of more than 50,000 gold-equivalent ounces, has been filed on the SEDAR website, www.sedar.com.

ABOUT GRYPHON GOLD:

Gryphon Gold is a Nevada-focused gold exploration and potentially a production company. Its principal gold resource, the 1.4 million ounce (measured and indicated) and 1.1 million ounce (inferred) Borealis deposits, is located in the Walker Lane gold belt of western Nevada. The Borealis gold system is one of the largest known volcanic-hosted high-sulphidation gold bearing mineralized systems in Nevada. Nevada Eagle Resources, a wholly owned subsidiary, has approximately 54 highly prospective gold properties located in desirable gold trends in Nevada. Nevada Eagle's Golden Arrow property (leased to Nevada Sunrise Gold Corp.) contains a NI 43-101 compliant resource of 296,500 ounces of gold (measured and indicated) and 50,400 inferred ounces of gold. Nevada Eagle's other principal properties have a cumulative 550,000 of historical ounces of gold (the historical estimates are based on internal reports prepared by prior owners prior to February 2001, and were not prepared in accordance with CIM NI 43-101 standards, and thus their reliability has not been verified). A number of Nevada Eagle's principal properties are subject to joint venture or farm-in agreements in favor of third parties.

This press release contains "forward-looking information" within the meaning of Canadian and United States securities laws, which may include, but is not limited to, statements with respect to projections and expectations related to the results and projections contained in the Pre-Feasibility Study regarding the Borealis resource, including the expected mine life, recovery, capital and other costs and anticipated production of the described open-pit oxide heap leach mine at the Borealis property, anticipated internal rate of return, anticipated payback period, availability of capital for development and the affect of the pre-feasibility study on the company's ability to raise capital for development, sensitivity to metal prices and ore grade, resource estimates on the Borealis resource, pediment exploration plans and other plans, projections, estimates and expectations. Such forward-looking statements reflect our current views with respect to future events and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including, the risks and uncertainties outlined under the section headings "Forward-Looking Statements" and "Risks Factors" in our annual report on Form 10-KSB, as filed with the SEC on June 26, 2009, under the section heading "Risk Factors" in our most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q, as filed with the SEC on August 14, 2009, and in our most recent financial statements, reports and registration statements filed with the SEC (available at www.sec.gov) and with Canadian securities administrators (available at www.sedar.com). In addition, the Pre-Feasibility Study uses an estimate of metal prices based on historical and future metal prices. The operating and capital costs in the Pre-Feasibility Study were developed to be reasonable estimates within industry benchmarks. There is no certainty that the results of the Pre-Feasibility Study will ever be realized. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated, believed, estimated or expected. We do not undertake to update forward-looking statements, except as may be required by law.

All mineral resources have been estimated in accordance with the definition standards on mineral resources and mineral reserves of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum referred to in National Instrument 43-101, commonly referred to as NI 43-101. U.S. reporting requirements for disclosure of mineral properties are governed by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Industry Guide 7. Canadian and Guide 7 standards are substantially different and the information contained in this press release is not comparable to similar information disclosed by U.S. companies This press release and the Pre-Feasibility Study referenced in this press release uses the terms "measured", "indicated", and "inferred" resources. We advise investors that while those terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, the SEC does not recognize them. Inferred mineral resources are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, except in rare cases. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that part or all of an inferred resource exists, or is economically or legally minable. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves.
