General Metals Initiates New Core Assay Analysis at the Independence Gold and Silver Mining Project

RENO, NV (ACCESSWIRE) 8/22/2013 5:46:00 AM - - General Metals Corporation (GNMT): (http://www.generalmetalscorporation.com/) announced today that it was initiating a new round of analytical work on drill core samples from its Independence Gold and Silver Project located near Battle Mountain, Nevada. Jeffrey A. Rassuchine, the Company's Senior Consulting Geologist, will oversee the project which will involve approximately 80 samples from 300 feet of drill core from three zones - two located southeast of the old head frame and the third in the Hill Zone. The core cutting, fire assaying and atomic absorption work will be conducted under Mr. Rassuchine's supervision at American Assay Laboratories in Sparks, Nevada. The work will begin during the week of the 19th August 2013 with results to follow shortly. This core is taken from holes that "twinned" (paralleled) three holes drilled by West Core Drilling under the supervision of Dyer Engineering in the course of their earlier geotechnical work at the Property. The first core samples submitted will be from GM #T54-11 which twinned Hole #54 in the Hill Zone.

Mr. Rassuchine indicated: "The analytical work we are doing now is just the beginning of an extensive program we will undertake to complete assay work on all of the drill core we have at the Independence. Completion this work is long overdue and the results could have a material effect on the tonnage and grade of the Independence resource. We have a substantial amount of core to work with, much from deeper zones where gold and silver ore grades have been quite strong, as our 43-101 report points out."

Company CEO Dan Forbush echoed Mr. Rassuchine's comments: "As we move this property into its feasibility phase the work Jeff is directing will really help us further delineate the Independence gold and silver mining resource. It is a critical step in securing capital for the Company and move the Independence gold and silver mining project to the next production milestone. We anticipate a favorable correlation between the core assays and the assays from the reverse circulation drilling done previously."
