TORONTO, ONTARIO and VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA and NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK--(Marketwire - April 18, 2011) - The Laurel Hill Advisory Group ("Laurel Hill") congratulates Gammon Gold Inc. ("Gammon") on completing their acquisition of Capital Gold Corporation ("Capital Gold"). Capital Gold shareholders voted to approve the transaction at a shareholder meeting held on April 1st. More than 83 percent of Capital Gold shareholders participated with close to two thirds voting in favour of the transaction.

Rene Marion, President and CEO stated, "We are pleased that Capital Gold shareholders accepted our compelling offer. Along with our other advisors, Laurel Hill's cross border expertise and execution helped us successfully complete this transaction."

"We appreciated working with the entire Gammon team along with their financial and legal advisors. We were able to clearly communicate the benefits of the Gammon offer to the Capital Gold shareholders, and commend Gammon's senior management for all their efforts to complete this acquisition." said Brad Allen, Laurel Hill Senior Vice President.

Added Laurel Hill Senior Vice President, John O'Grady "What began as a friendly transaction ended up being much more challenging when a third party intervened. With a Canadian based acquirer of a U.S. based company, the success of this transaction reinforces the value of our North American capabilities."
