Gryphon Gold Sells Nevada Eagle Resources LLC

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 26, 2010) - Gryphon Gold Corporation (TSX:GGN)(OTCBB:GYPH) is pleased to announce the closing of the sale of its wholly owned subsidiary, Nevada Eagle Resources LLC ("NER"), to Fronteer Development (USA) Inc ("Fronteer"). Gryphon sold 100% of its membership interest in NER for $4.75 million. Fronteer paid $2.25 million in cash and $2.50 million by assuming Gryphon's obligations under a convertible note, which was retired. In addition, Gryphon will retain the Copper Basin property located in Idaho.

"Gryphon's long term plan is to focus its efforts on the development of the Borealis mine project joint venture with Sage Gold, Inc., and divesting NER represents a key milestone for Gryphon" said John Key, Gryphon's Chief Executive Officer. "With over $2 million in the bank and no debt, we believe Gryphon is well positioned to capitalize on the exciting potential at Borealis."
