Gryphon Gold Announces Heap Placement at Borealis Mine

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2011) - Gryphon Gold Corporation (TSX:GGN)(OTCBB:GYPH) is pleased to provide an update of onsite construction work for the Borealis Oxide Heap Leach Project as of September 8, 2011. The project remains below budget. The Borealis Oxide Heap Leach Project began building the initial heaps for cyanide treatment on September 5, 2011.

John Key, Chief Executive Officer of Gryphon, commented, "The aggressive schedule for entering production at Borealis has been a challenge but one that our personnel and contactors are continuing to meet. With the initial building of oxide gold heaps, we would anticipate fluid flows beginning soon and our previously announced shipping and sales dates to be met."

As of September 1, 2011 the leach pad liner was 100% complete.

As of September 5, 2011 final approvals from the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection had been received that allows for production processing.

The initial portion of the heap leach pad has successfully been over lined with material screened from the Freedom Flats heap. This drainage layer is gold bearing material and will contribute to the gold production.

The project is on target for delivery of loaded carbon in September and cash flow in October. With funds from the $3M Private Placement, the Adsorption, Desorption, Recovery Plant (the "ADR") is being fabricated and is currently on schedule. On site, the ADR footings are complete and the pouring of the floors is in progress.

A construction update with pictures will be posted on
