Corex Gold Announces Private Placement with Gammon Gold

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2010) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

Corex Gold Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CGE) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement pursuant to which Gammon Gold Inc. (TSX:GAM)(NYSE:GRS) proposes to acquire 4,706,000 units of the Company at a price of $0.68 per unit for proceeds of $3,200,080. Corex will place an additional 1,694,000 units, with other qualified investors, for total proceeds of $4,352,000.

Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one-half of one transferable Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder, on exercise thereof, to purchase one additional Common Share at a price of $0.90 for a period of 24 months from the completion of the Offering. All securities issued in connection with the private placement will be subject to a minimum four-month hold period. The Offering is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. A finder's fee is payable on a portion of the financing according to TSX policy guidelines.

After giving effect to the private placement, Gammon Gold will hold approximately 12% of the issued and outstanding shares (approximately 14% on a fully diluted basis) of Corex. Subject to certain conditions, Gammon will have the right to participate in all future financings of Corex to maintain its proportionate shareholding. Gammon will also nominate one member to the Technical Advisory Board (TAB) of Corex. Closing of the transaction is expected to be on or before July 16, 2010.

"This strategic investment from Gammon is positive recognition for the value of Corex's Santana project," said Craig Schneider, President and Chief Executive Officer, Corex Gold. "We are very pleased to have Gammon Gold, a company which has proven expertise in the development of gold projects in Mexico, as an investor and a contributor to our TAB."

Net proceeds from the private placement will principally be used for expenses associated with the ongoing development of the Company's Santana Gold project and for general working capital.
