Gryphon Gold Resource Model Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 11, 2007) - Gryphon Gold Corporation (TSX:GGN)(OTCBB:GYPH) today reported the results of the re-estimation of its gold resource model complaint with CIM Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves (2005), as required by NI 43-101.

The new independent estimate of the contained gold in the Borealis resource affirms the resource is substantially as Gryphon Gold had reported previously. These new resource estimates are based on drilling reported to March 2006 and do not include the successful results in the Graben deposit from March 2006 to date (reported April 20 & June 30, 2006). Silver is not reported as it is a marginal contributor to the overall valuation. The measured and indicated gold resource and inferred gold resource reported in the January 2007 Technical Report is as shown below.
