Business Wire

RYE, N.Y. -- February 28, 2013

The Board of Trustees of the GAMCO Global Gold, Natural Resources & Income
Trust by Gabelli (NYSE MKT:GGN) (the “Fund”) approved the continuation of its
policy of paying monthly cash distributions. The Board of Trustees declared
cash distributions of $0.12 per common share for each of April, May, and June
2013.

The distribution for April 2013 will be payable on April 23, 2013 to common
shareholders of record on April 16, 2013.

The distribution for May 2013 will be payable on May 23, 2013 to common
shareholders of record on May 16, 2013.

The distribution for June 2013 will be payable on June 21, 2013 to common
shareholders of record on June 14, 2013.

Each quarter, the Board of Trustees reviews the amount of any potential
distribution from the income, capital gain, or capital available. The Board of
Trustees will continue to monitor the Fund’s distribution level, taking into
consideration the Fund’s net asset value and the financial market environment.
The distribution rate should not be considered the dividend yield or total
return on an investment in the Fund.

The Fund currently intends to make monthly cash distributions of all or a
portion of its investment company taxable income (which includes ordinary
income and realized net short-term capital gains) to common shareholders. The
Fund also intends to make annual distributions of its realized net long-term
capital gains, if any. A portion of the distribution may be a return of
capital. Various factors will affect the level of the Fund’s income, such as
its asset mix and use of covered call strategies. To permit the Fund to
maintain more stable distributions, the Fund may from time to time distribute
more or less than the entire amount of income earned in a particular period.
Because the Fund’s current monthly distributions are subject to modification
by the Board of Trustees at any time and the Fund’s income will fluctuate,
there can be no assurance that the Fund will pay distributions at a particular
rate or frequency.

If the Fund does not generate sufficient earnings (dividends and interest
income and realized net capital gain) equal to or in excess of the aggregate
distributions paid by the Fund in a given year, then the amount distributed in
excess of the Fund’s earnings would be deemed a return of capital. Since this
would be considered a return of a portion of a shareholder’s original
investment, it is generally not taxable and is treated as a reduction in the
shareholder’s cost basis.

Short-term capital gains, qualified dividend income, ordinary income, and
paid-in capital, if any, will be allocated on a pro-rata basis to all
distributions to common shareholders for the year. Based on the accounting
records of the Fund as of February 13, 2013, each of the distributions paid to
common shareholders in 2013 would include approximately 52% from net capital
gains and 48% from paid-in capital on a book basis. The estimated components
of each distribution are updated and provided to shareholders of record in a
notice accompanying the distribution and are available on our website
(www.gabelli.com). The final determination of the sources of all distributions
in 2013 will be made after year end and can vary from the monthly estimates.
All shareholders with taxable accounts will receive written notification
regarding the components and tax treatment for all 2013 distributions in early
2014 via Form 1099-DIV.
