CybeRelease: (OTC: GNLM) Full Prospecting License Upgrade Issued
(CybeRelease, May 2, 2007) – Lake Harmony, Pa. - General Metals Corporation (the “Company”) (OTC BB: GNLM) The Company is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary Mikite Gold Resources has received an offer from the Minerals Commission in Ghana to have its 150 sq. km. Nyhinahin mineral concession upgraded from a reconnaissance license to a full prospecting license. The Nyinahin mining concession, near Bibiani, Ghana, has the mineral rights for gold, diamonds and base metals.
The Nyinahin mining concession is located between two geological gold belts, the Bibiani Belt to the west and the Asankrangwa to the east. The property shares borders with several major mining companies, including Newmont Mining, Napoli Gold and Dunkwa Continental Goldfields. The district is home to the famous Ashanti Goldfields-Obuasi Mines and is one of the most active exploratory areas in the world. Newmont Mining, alone, plans to spend three billion dollars exploring for gold and developing gold mines in Ghana. (See www.newmont.com)
The terms of acquisition required General Metals to issue 1,000,000 restricted common shares with 1,000,000 share purchase warrants attached, priced @ $0.26 for a period of 2 years in satisfaction of full and complete payment for 100% interest in the above concession. The warrant holders have reconfirmed their intent to exercise these warrants to fund the Company’s exploration plans, budgeted at $260,000US based upon geologist’s recommendations.
Steve Parent, General Metals President and CEO comments: “This acquisition gives us an operational Ghanaian corporation and a group of interested shareholders familiar with the area to assist in the development. The upgraded status allows us to conduct substantially more exploration than was previously allowed. This infrastructure will enable us to aggressively seek to acquire additional mining properties in the area as they become available. We are currently reviewing a fully permitted gold mine that may be available on favorable terms that is in the Confidentially stage at this time. Having Newmont as a neighbor gives us added confidence as well.”
Dan Forbush, CPA, MBA and the Company’s CFO said: "Acquisitions were the method we used at Glamis to rapidly grow the operations of the Company and we are of the same mind here at General. We are studying several near term production opportunities in Nevada, Ghana, Mexico and Columbia at this time.
